Greers Ferry Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Rustic Retreat is a fisherman's cabin on the banks of the Little Red River. A stroll down the stone steps and path to the custom dock gives you access to some of the best trout fishing in the area. Right from the private dock you can fish one of the local guides' favorite spots. Prep area makes cleaning your catch a breeze. Fire up the charcoal grill and you've caught supper! From the cabin it is less than half a mile to the Red River Trout Dock and one and a half miles to Cow Shoals Walk In Access. What more could a fisherman want?

Families will love Rustic Retreat, our fully furnished cabin with two bedrooms and two full baths. A king size bed, 2 twin beds, and a convertible sofa provide room to sleep 6 comfortably. The open concept living area includes a fully equipped kitchen, eating area, TV with DVD player, and wood burning fireplace. Sliding glass doors lead to the screened porch which is ideal for bird watching. Other wild life can be spotted all around deer, wild turkeys, bald eagles, and blue herons just to name a few.

For the non-fisherman the cabin is less than 15 minutes from the Dam Site Marina on Greers Ferry Lake. At the marina you can rent jet ski or boats for a day of fun on the lake. You can also swim at the recreation area on the lake or try rock climbing at Sugarloaf Mountain.

Rustic Retreat has something for everyone.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The cabin was neat and clean and perfectly equipped. The steps down to the dock were precarious for two 80 year olds , but we made them many times. The fishing would probably have been much better if I knew more about trout fishing. Only caught two rainbows, but they were beauties. The fireflys at night made our stay magical . Brought back fond childhood memories.

Four stars for cabin.

Easter was AMAZING at the Rustic Retreat

  • 4 of 5

My wife and our 4 kids (ages 3-13) stayed 3 nights at The Rustic Retreat. We had a blast! Perfect weather, great fishing (caught over 40 rainbow trout) all together, climbed Sugar Loaf mountain and hunted Eggs that the Easter bunny dropped off.

PRO's- great communication from owners, private dock( plenty of space with lights if needed), cool rustic appeal decor, screened in porch, stocked kitchen for everything you need to cook with, grounds were very nicely done and trimmed and cut neatly and a TV/record player/radio from early 1900's that worked!! I found it to be the coolest thing in the house!!

CON's- The rustic decor was nice but the couches, and bedding felt very old therefore created a bit of anxiety of bugs and cleanness. Wish i had a vacuum to help keep things picked up while there. The water hose was broken so i had to try and rig it to get water to the dock for cleaning fish.

I can guarantee that none of the CON's will keep us from going back though...really an awesome trip, great cabin and beautiful scenery.

Thanks to the Chesters for creating such a great place!!

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

The Rustic Retreat was absolutely wonderful! This was a last minute getaway for my husband and me and it was perfect. It's a very quiet location while still being convenient to area attractions. The neighbors even put on a fireworks show! We will definitely stay here again! Thanks so much!

Great Little Red River Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin! Had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The mist that rolls in late afternoon is so cool (literally and figuratively).

Great Deal

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Everything was as advertised, and this place is well worth the price. We caught quite a few fish, and had a great time. We will rent this place again.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for 2 nights for a short get a way, the cabin was very clean and well maintained. We were scared that spiders and other insects would be an issue with the cabin being almost completely secluded, we saw not one spider. The owners do a very well job of keeping the cabin up to par!
