About the property

5 BR/2 Bath, Sleeps 14

Fabulous family friendly 5 bedroom home steps away from the lake. Completely updated in 2011 with beautiful new kitchen (granite counters, pizza oven, espresso machine, stainless appliances, eat in bar). Gorgeous bathrooms with granite and stone showers. The bedrooms feature new beds for a peaceful night of sleep. The attic was converted to a cool kids hangout with PlayStation and air conditioning. The back porch is perfect for reading, chatting, and soaking up the view. Wireless internet and cable are provided.

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.

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!

Family-friendly Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to rest, relax, and enjoy nature with your family. The home is perfect for families with small children. It is clean, warm, cozy, and nicely furnished, but there is nothing so precious that you are worried about breaking valuable antiques...hence you and your family can relax. The home is fully equipped for need to bring anything (except charcoal). Bedding and linens are all great. The lake view is awesome and sunsets are stunning. The home is very conveniently located in a neighborhood close to downtown and grocery store...but it feels secluded. All in all, it is a wonderful place to make lasting family memories.

This place is magnificent, beautiful scenery, nice house, plenty of room for larger groups. Comes fully furnished so you don't have to worry about bringing anything but food and charcoal (we grilled pretty much everything). The lake is perfect, and the little island provides a little get away in itself.

Owner's Response: Such a nice note! Thank you! The island is a hidden gem with the Canadian geese and the cliff-jumping. Year round destination:)
