About Dotty Sonnemaker

This cabin was built by my grandparents shortly after Greers Ferry Lake was created in the 1960's. It has always been in our family and hosted countless holidays and family gatherings. We purchased the property in 2006 and began renovations for the next generation to enjoy. Many memories of family, friends and laughter live within the walls. We hope to share our home with others so that more memories will continue.

Why Dotty Sonnemaker chose Greers Ferry Lake

Greers Ferry is a beautiful lake and peaceful setting. There are unlimited recreational opportunities for families and fishermen. The lake is clean and scenic with boating and fishing options galore.

What makes this house unique

Only a few lucky people can sit on their back porch and watch the sun set on beautiful Greers Ferry Lake. It is a spectacular place to play and rejuvenate.

Great Family Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being just a few steps away from the lake. It was a quiet lake for swimming & fishing. It was a great house for us and the other family we shared with it. Most importantly, the hostess was very organized & attentive to our needs. We will definitely consider coming back.

Surprising Gem - on the Lake and in Town

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week using this wonderful property. The pictures provided on the website do not fully reflect the beauty of the views looking out the picture window. As you step into the remodeled kitchen, the first view is the wide open space of the kitchen, and then the wide open space of the living area, followed by the realization that the picture window opens up to the dock, lake, and beautiful sunsets. We had 14 guests and each person was able to move around without feeling crowded. The large sofa seats 6-8 adults, with two additional recliners in the corner. While the area felt secluded, grocery shopping was less than 1/2 mile away. For a summer get away to the lake, this is a great location. Both bathrooms are located off the single hallway - so there are no issues with a master bathroom setup.

This place was an instant hit for every member of our family... except the pets we left at home.

Sunset Lodge on the Cove-Great Memories were created

  • 5 of 5

The Summa Family-Nannie, my 3 grown kids and their spouses and my 7 grandchildren had a wonderful time at the Sunset Lodge on the Cove. The only thing missing was Papa who passed 2 1/2 years ago of CA. We owned a cabin at the Lake of the Ozarks and this reminded all of us so much of our times together there. The house is beautiful and very well equipped for families with children. We loved swimming over to the island and Nannie even jumped off the cliffs, which surprised the grandkids!! The canoe was a big hit with the young and older boys. This house is also so close to town but you would never know it when you are at the cabin. There are so many things to do around Heber Springs. We loved it and Dottie was wonderful to work with.

Family Affair followed by 30th Birthday Party- Both Success!

  • 5 of 5

My 15 piece family (children included) had such a wonderful time here in 2014 that my best friend, twin sister, and I could think of nowhere better to host our 30th birthday party. Besides the United States Postal Service causing disruption to our payments, we had a glorious time. The cabin is perfection, there is ample room, and beautiful connectivity to the lake and local rental services. We enjoyed our days on the lake, our nights cooking together as a family, and our time together throughout the entire trip. Til next time!
