Bull Shoals cabin description

1000 sq. ft. of a rustic charmed cedar sided cabin on the Lake with a PRIVATE BOAT DOCK, welcomes you to 2 tranquil wooded acres in the Ozark Mountains. We like to call it a 'LAKESIDE HERMITAGE'! Stay 7 nights, get 1 night FREE!

The interior of this 3 bedroom, 2 bath cabin is surrounded by a warm tongue and grooved knotty pine throughout. The great room with 17' ceilings boasts a full kitchen, solid oak dining set, living area w/ large flat screen TV/DVD and lots of windows. A patio door also opens to the deck built around a large towering oak tree for natural shade and faces the lake equipped with patio furniture and a gas grill.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, massive country French pine dresser and nightstand, and a flat screen TV. The bunk room is off of the master and has its own separate entrance to the bath. The bathroom has a large shower with oil bronze bath fixtures and a granite vanity sink top. The loft features a bedroom with a daybed and attached pull out trundle (both with quality mattresses which can accommodate 2 adults comfortably), private bath with tub, and a sitting area with a bistro table and chairs overlooking the great room and the Lake where a game of cards, chess, or taking in a good book can be had.

At dusk, sit on your balcony or your private boat dock on the water, and enjoy the serene sounds of Owls, Bobwhites, Whip-poor-wills and Coyotes echoing through the valley. The evening also brings a variety of bats bugsurfing overhead for a midnight snack, and the occasional flying squirrel can be caught raiding the bird feeders under the cover of darkness. Or, perhaps gaze into the radiant night sky, absent of all city lights while searching for your favorite star, chase satellites to the horizon, or wish upon a shooting star while swapping stories around a warm crackling campfire.

Also, Mosquitoes are few to NONE!!! Yes, this truly is the 'Best of both Worlds'!

SO....

If you are looking for an escape from your fast paced world, basking in the natural tranquility and beauty of the Ozark Mountains, 'THE LAKESIDE HERMITAGE' on Bull Shoals Lake in Arkansas has what you seek. This clear blue lake was formed by the damming of the White River in the mid 1950's, and has been attracting all who love the outdoors ever since. It offers 45,500 acres of lake and 1050 miles of mountain shoreline, straddling the borders of Arkansas and Missouri. Fishing tournaments are held year round because of the outstanding fishing in this area and harbors species such as Walleye, Crappie, Catfish, and numerous varieties of Bass. The amazing cliff structures beneath the waters surface are not only great for fish habitat, but is well known for the great scuba diving and spear fishing due to the clarity of the lake. Pleasure boating is quite safe and relatively light, even on weekends and holidays. The White River, below the dam, is 18 scenic miles away via windy mountain roads, and is world renowned for its trout fishing, where your limit of Cutthroat, Rainbow, and/or Browns can easily be caught. This area remains to still be deemed as 'The mid-south's best kept secret' thus far!

                    There is a covered porch and a deck facing the lake with patio furniture and gas grill, picnic table, fire pit with camp chairs, and horseshoes on 2 private wooded acres that surround you with wildlife. Some include fox, raccoon, opossum, armadillo, turkey, bobcat, coyote, and an abundance of whitetail deer. For you Audubon fans, the locals share sightings of what feathery friends they see every year. The unusual sightings include Cardinals, Robins, Downy Woodpeckers, Phoebes, Chickadees, Finches, Oriels, Hawks, and other Raptors. Other sightings have included Summer Tanagers, Cedar Waxwings, Blue Grosbeaks, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Indigo Buntings, and the more rare Painted Bunting. Loons and Herons are often seen on, or at the waters edge, along with the majestic Bald Eagle. Some Baldies stay year round, but are more frequently seen in winter as the lake does not freeze. The average day time temperature in winter is 50 degrees! (A nudge for you more northern folks :)...moreless

                  WE HAVE A PRIVATE BOAT DOCK WITH A SWIMMING PLATFORM!! So, bring your boat/jet ski or rent one at the local marina. We also have a 7 person capacity fishing pontoon for rent! Tour Bull Shoals Lake Dam (the 5th largest in the US), view the mountains and the lakes for miles from the 'Top of the Ozarks Tower', go hiking thru many groomed/mapped trails in the Buffalo River National Forest or float the Buffalo River. Perhaps take a scenic drive down Hwy. 7, known as one of America's top 10 most scenic highways and hit a few of the several antique stores along the way, or just grill out on your own deck and take in the tranquility of wooded seclusion of The Lakeside Hermitage with the sounds of nature and the gentle waves hitting the shoreline just kickin' back and relaxing. The kids can stay busy with horseshoes, board games, DVD's, or fish from shore about 50 yards from your deck. Please note that shopping (Walmart Supercenter, restaurants, gas and other public activities are only 12-15 miles
