Sylvan Shores Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This property is a private cabin, not a resort. Great location, great view.

Your cabin is designed to be affordable for just a single couple ($165) , or two couple ($235), or even three couple ($305) , and possibly 8 guests, if two guests don't mind sleeping on a comfortable roll out double bed. The base amount is $165 for two guests, and extra guests are $35 per guest per night. The main floor consists of a large living room/bedroom and bath, and a full kitchen with conversation area (with the roll out bed). The new 14' x 34' deck overlooks a view of Beaver Lake (one of the most pristine lakes in America) that will leave you speechless. Downstairs there are two additional bedrooms and bath. A washer and drier are available, but guests must provide their own detergent, softener, etc. Just outside is a beautiful downstairs deck also with a great view. The hot tub is the perfect relaxer, you will sleep like a baby. There is a one time hot tub fee of $50 that covers our heating and chemical costs. So when you book, be sure to declare if you wish to use the Hot Tub, and it will be up and running for you when you arrive. Nestled in the trees is a new fire ring, and includes a supply of logs for your fire. The wooded four acres the cabin sits on is filled with wildlife. From red fox to white tail deer, opossum and bobcat. Up above you will see woodpeckers, hawks, eagles, and turkey vultures, not to mention a variety of song birds.

There's a boat launch ramp just down the hill, a marina around the corner, and a dam site park minutes away. There's even trout fishing or canoeing on the white river adjacent to the dam. In town, you will find all sorts of entertainment, from a new zip line ride, to a wild animal shelter with lions, tigers, and bears ....... 'Oh My!' You can even take a dinner car ride on the old steam engine train from yesteryear. Our shops and restaurants are over the top with quality and uniqueness. And if you really want a treat, get Jack to take you on his special tour of Eureka Springs, you will love it.

About Jack Cross

Jack first came to Eureka in the early 70's as a hippie and fell in love with this magical town. It's not about money in Eureka Springs, it's about lifestyle, Jack will tell you, and what a lifestyle it is. His love of the outdoors, fishing, hiking, and all sorts of water sports, make Jack a happy camper. He has great stories, and if you are lucky enough to spend time with him, he will be sure an tell you a few. Most of all, Jack loves people as you will see. He will do whatever it takes to make sure you enjoy this place he calls paradise.

Jack Cross purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Jack Cross chose Eureka Springs

I've wanted this cabin ever since Evelyn and I first saw it 40 years ago. So when the opportunity presented its self, we couldn't help ourselves. The cabin needed work, and we gave it what it needed. It was a dream 40 years ago, but a reality today. A magic little cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

We adjusted its design so it not only can accommodate three couples, but can be minimalized to be affordable for just a single couple. The deck is fantastic, as is the spectacular view of Beaver Lake, and I promise if you use the hot tub, you will sleep like a baby.

Don't pass up this view!

  • 5 of 5

I was a little weary of renting this cabin due to the price, but you absolutely get what you pay for with this one. The view of Beaver Lake from the back deck is absolutely beautiful! We spent several hours our first night just staring off into the distance. If you're looking to disconnect from your life back home, this is the place for you.

Our stay at this cabin was fantastic and exactly what we wanted in a vacation home. Jack had some really great suggestions for places to visit in Eureka Springs and a general wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area. He was even kind of enough to invite us out on his pontoon!

To sum it up: the price is fair, the owner is incredibly nice and helpful, and the view will make your stress melt away!

Very nice cabin!

  • 5 of 5

For a party of 6 (later 7) people, this was a very comfortable cabin. We loved the whole experience- the beds were amazingly comfortable. Jack greeted us with so much hospitality, and his sweet dog Jackson!

My trip ended badly- I severely dislocated my ankle so I didn't get to enjoy our last night and day.

But overall it's been a great stay! Strongly considering coming back.

Great accommodations and view...

  • 4 of 5

Six ladies from our Great Adventure tour group enjoyed a long weekend at Beaver Lake. Views were great for relaxing and there was plenty of

space inside for all of us. Besides the wonderful views of the lake we took walks and also visited a cafe and vintage shop near the property.

Our time at Bentonville and Crystal Bridges museum and toured the Frank Lloyd Wright home there too. We spent part of two days in Eureka

Springs sight seeing and that was all beautiful.

Even better!

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the Eureka Springs area 3 times in the past year and a half and this is the second time we have stayed at Jack's place. We tried a different location once and soon realized that nothing compared to the beautiful view and location of this cabin. Even though we were just here a little over a year ago, Jack made some wonderful additions to this already well equipped cabin. The re-done downstairs patio area was inviting on a hot day and the outdoor grill as well as the washer and dryer were new since our last visit. There is no doubt we will be staying here from now on when we are in the area.

Great space for a small group

  • 5 of 5

We had a GREAT time in Eureka Springs for our annual girls weekend, and Jack's cabin was the perfect place to host our group.

7 people fit comfortably here and it had all of the amenities, plenty of linens and towels. Jack met us at the property to go over cabin specifics, and even told us about a great swimming spot at the lake just down the road. The view is exactly as pictured here. Absolutely gorgeous! We hope to make this cabin our new annual tradition.

Great property, beautiful view - and fireflies!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jack's place for 4 days in July, 2015. It was a phenomenal week, weather-wise; it even dropped down into the 70s the last two days we were there, which was a welcome respite from the 100+ degree heat we left in Houston!

Jack has set up a great cabin with everything a traveler could need. The view from the deck is incredible, and the nighttime symphony of insects and other critters will put you right to sleep. I haven't seen fireflies since I was a kid, but they were in abundance when dusk crept in. Be careful of the deer when driving, because they come out in numbers as evening approaches.

Jack drove us around the area, showed us places only locals know about, and pointed out the best places to eat. Jack is a fine storyteller, and he's lived in the area long enough to have quite a few. If you're not careful, you might just learn something.

The cabin was spacious, fully appointed, had good beds, and nice, clean linens. You've got all the things you could need in the kitchen. It has two large decks with great patio furniture on which you can enjoy the view, a couple of ashtrays so you can enjoy a fine cigar, and a gas grill for you to cook up that perfect meal for the occasion. Although we did not partake, the cabin has a very nice hot tub for your enjoyment.

My wife, step-daughter and I enjoyed our stay immensely, and will be sure to stay with Jack again in the future.
