2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6 Charming House Located On Horseshoe Lake

Located on Horseshoe Lake in East Arkansas, just outside of Memphis. This quiet lake house treats guests with the sights and sounds of nature in one of the most peaceful environments. Famous for its open water and cypress trees, visitors can enjoy stunning sunsets, swimming, sunbathing, horseshoes, badminton, kayaking, and fishing. Travel 32 miles to downtown Memphis where you can enjoy sightseeing, shopping, dining and dancing. With the convenient location of this wonderful lake house you can truly enjoy the best of both worlds!

This charming 'like-new' house has 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and a private master bathroom with shower/tub. The second bedroom or 'bunk room' has four bunk beds. Both bedrooms have 'satellite' TV and spacious closets. The second bathroom features a large walk-in shower. Linens and towels are provided.

The kitchen features stainless appliances, built in microwave, glass-top stove, dishwasher, disposal, and refrigerator with ice maker. It also features a spacious island with extra seating. The open floor plan allows you to cook while enjoying the beautiful views and visiting with your guests.

The living and dining areas are also open and provide excellent views of all the lake has to offer. The dining area features a large 'picnic-style' dining table that seats 8-10 , accented by a large antler chandelier. The living area features a stone gas fireplace, ample seating, flat-screen TV, and stereo. Vaulted ceilings and double French doors add to the open feel of the living and dining areas.

The screened porch is a great place to read or relax while enjoying the sights and sounds of the lake. A dining table and additional seating also makes it a great place to dine or entertain while staying close to nature. A BBQ grill is located near the porch for your convenience. Speakers on the porch allow you to enjoy the stereo while relaxing outside.

The pier has a platform for entertaining and watching late afternoon sunsets. It is also the perfect place to spend a day sunbathing, swimming, fishing, kayaking, or nature watching. No matter the season, the lake house is the perfect place to get away from it all!

It's great to be able to sightsee in Memphis all day then get back and relax by the lake - nice & quiet.

About Janet Hill

Lifelong Memphian. Grew up spending time fishing and skiing at Horseshoe lake.

It's very convenient to Memphis, especially downtown. Only 40 minutes from our house.

Janet Hill purchased this cabin in 1991

Why Janet Hill chose Arkansas

Originally purchased in 1991, it has provided many hours of enjoyment for our family and friends. We decided to rebuild about 6 years ago and knew exactly what we needed in a lake house. From the great room to the screened porch to the large open kitchen, it is very functional. Nice and clean, never musty. It is also the best spot on the lake to watch the sunset!

What makes this cabin unique

The unique thing that sets our cabin apart is simply that it has been recently rebuilt from the ground up. Everything is new and no carpet to smell, all stained concrete floors.

Peaceful, quiet and beautiful house on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

House has been tastefully remodeled and is very comfortable and clean. Deck could use repair but overall great property. Loved it!

No high end luxury but very adequate and appropriate for Horseshoe lake. No restaurants around so bring your own food!

A Great House to relax with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Horseshoe Lake! The house and dock were clean and well-maintained. Our crew enjoyed fishing off the dock and watching the sunset over the lake. It was an easy drive to Memphis. We would definitely recommend this house for your next lake get-away.

Spacious, relaxing, clean and beautiful sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay here. We used the lake house as a base for a couple of days when we went into Memphis and it was a great place to come back to. It's well equipped and everything was in superb condition and it was VERY CLEAN. Probably the cleanest rental property we've stayed in for a while. We would have loved to have stayed longer and used the kayak on the jetty (which is a fantastic place from which to watch the sunsets)... maybe next time. Having two bathrooms was also really useful. Dealing with the owners was also easy and straightforward. Definitely recommended!

Amazing place to stay!

This lake house was perfect for me and my family. It has an unbeatable view and everything you need for your stay. It's close enough to Memphis but not too far, and we would love to come back again.

Cozy and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place, it was clean and had everything needed. We were there in Dec and were able to fish, so it was a big plus for the guys. Would like to return someday in the summer. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful setting, comfortable accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was a well-appointed, cozy house on a beautiful lake. We used it for a staff retreat and it was the perfect place to do both team work and "get away from it all." The sun sets over the lake every evening and the view is stunning.
