Overview

Fairfield Bay House Rental Photos and Description

4 Br 3 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 16 A View From Every Room In The House.

Welcome to Lago Vista. We offer our home as a retreat for old friends and new friends to enjoy. We think you will find it to be a relaxing escape, no matter what the season. Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful panoramic view of Greer’s Ferry lake and Sugarloaf Mountain and miles and miles beyond. Our family has enjoyed many days on this lake, as well as the great golf courses, tennis courts and many other recreational opportunities here. But the best thing about Lago Vista is that, for a few days, it can belong to you.

The home:

The home’s décor is casually elegant. There are 4 bedrooms (2 of which are masters) with 3 full baths and one ½ bath. Nine separate beds can easily accommodate 3 families and can sleep as many as 16 people including the large sofas. MBR 1 - king bed, MBR 2 - queen and full/twin bunk, BR 3 - queen and full/twin bunk, BR 4-2 queens. There is a modern fully equipped kitchen as well as a propane grill on the deck. 2 living areas with large flat screen TVs and blue ray dvd players (netflix capable). The downstairs recreation room and den has a pool table that can be converted for ping pong. Our 2 huge decks featuring plenty of seating including 2 porch swings, offer views as far as your eyes can see. After a day at the lake or golf course – there is plenty to do at the house – play ping pong, pool, watch TV or movies with plenty of room to stretch out enjoy the view and make great memories.

About Fred Huggins

My wife Lori and I raised our 2 sons on this lake and we have made a lifetime of memories here. Check out some of those memories and more photos by searching for Lago Vista on Facebook. Please like and share!

Fred Huggins purchased this house in 1999

Why Fred Huggins chose Greers Ferry Lake

The view is unbelievable and it is different every day. Every outdoor activity you can think of is nearby and Fairfield Bay's amenities are top notch.

What makes this house unique

Drinking coffee on the deck, in the early morning, I frequently see deer in our back yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was the perfect place. for our family's Christmas together.

Many memories were made by both the little ones and the adults.

We made ginger bread houses, decorated cookies, played games and

ate tons of of food and of course the men played a lot of pool.

Your kitchen was well equipped which made it easy to prepare our meals

The view is the most beautiful on the lake!!! The one sunrise we saw was

magnificent.

We hope to gather there again at some future time.

Outstanding Family Vacation! Thanks!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home is perfect for our family gathering. The view is spectacular. Bird watching is great from the top deck. So many sitting areas. The kitchen and bathrooms are well stocked.

The kids (7 total, ages 2-14) had the entire lower level to themselves - pool table convertible to ping pong table, spacious lounging area for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, 2 swings sets on the lower level porch. They only came upstairs for meals.

We went to the pool almost daily. Tubing on the lake and visit to the Blanchard Cavern are must do’s. We climbed Sugar Loaf Mountain, went fishing. A lot of fun water activities at the marina. We never left Fairfield Bay because there were too many local fun activities. We saw a nearby horse stable but ran out of time. Didn't have enough time for tennis or golfing either.

We couldn’t believe how inexpensive the local entertainment activities were. We went to see Star Trek Beyond and Ice Age: Collision Course, popcorn and drinks included - $53 for 10 people. Spare Time Bowling, including shoes rental - $48 for 8 people.

The local people are super friendly, and everyone loves where they live. We loved driving the smooth winding roads through the mountain.

The owner and property manager are amazing. They kept in touch with us via texting. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was more than perfect.

This is definitely one of our best family vacations! Thanks!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this house and Fairfield Bay! The house was large enough for 7 adults and 3 children! The views from the deck were amazing! We enjoyed 2 days on the Lake and the Fairfield Marina was awesome to work with! We did hike Sugerloaf Mountain and it was beautiful! The guys took a trout fishing trip which they enjoyed and the girls shopped in Heber Springs. We did enjoy the Cool Pool which is close to the house and the guys played some golf. Everyone was friendly and we enjoyed Sunday Worship at Fairfield Bay Baptist Church. The house had everything we needed to enjoy time together. We did enjoy the movies that were available to watch! We played many games and our grandsons loved the ping pong table! Thank you for providing a wonderful place for our family to be all together and create new memories!

Our stay at Lago Vista

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Fred and Lori for sharing your beautiful home with us. This was our 50th Anniversary, we had most of our immediate family with us to celebrate with. We enjoyed bowling, miniature golf, hiking,eating out and cooking on grill on deck, watching fire works display in distance, but most of all just got caught up with visiting and enjoying the beautiful view and peace you feel while there. Our stay was every thing we wanted and more . Very convenient for restaurants, grocery store, church and lots of entertainment. The folder you provided about stuff we needed to know, places to go and things to do was very helpful. We would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a beautiful, clean, relaxing, spacious place to stay.

THANK YOU

The Murphy Family

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family which included 8 adults and 5 kids had a wonderful time on our vacation to Lago Vista! The house was amazing and the view was stunnung! The pictures are very accurate of what you get there. The adults enjoyed having plenty of room to spread out with separate living areas on the two floors with plenty of bed space too. The children loved the pool/pingpong table. We spent a lot of time on the top deck just soaking in the views. The property is pretty private with only one other home at the end of the cul-de-sac. The pool, playground and tennis courts were within walking distance which the kids loved. We enjoyed the miniature golf and the frisbee golf. We hiked many trails which were near the property. We also rented boats at the marina. They were very easy to work with and we loved the lake! Water was a perfect temperature and the scenery was fantastic! The owners were very helpful with all our needs and response time for questions was extremely timely.

We loved the property and all of us said this was the best vacation so far. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect Family Gathering!

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome home! Everything in description was right on target. Even with temps in the 40s, the morning sun made the deck perfect for late morning coffee. Great space for adults and kids. We had the perfect family New Year's for my parents with the whole family together. Owner's were super to work with. Place is great for family/group recreation time away from the city! We will be back!!

Quiet & Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed Thanksgiving here and loved the house. There was room for everyone and the kitchen had everything we needed. It rained most of the time so we did not get to enjoy the lovely decks, but we were warm and cozy inside. We will definitely come back.

Ps. Family members appreciated the gym and pool too
