  • Wonderful lakefront experience!

    "We stayed for a long weekend and had a great time! The dock and swimming area was perfect even if we never left home or had a boat. Enjoyed the wildlife and beautiful sunrises over the lake with excellent privacy. I had my dog with me and she had a blast swimming and even made an attempt to catch a deer :) Overall, a great time had by all ranging in ages from 8 to 66 -- we plan to make another trip next summer!"

  • Great place in Eureka Springs!

    "We've stayed extensively in VRBO homes and this is one of the nicest. This house was built in the late 1800's, updates to the house are quirky but done nicely and add to the charm. The house is very clean and well maintained, as are the grounds outside. Location is good: Spring street just around the corner from the Crescent Hotel. A bit of a hike uphill from the downtown area but manageable. Furnished extensively with antiques, some of which are very unique. To say this house is "full" of furnishings is an understatement! Beds are comfortable. Kitchen had everything we needed, though only used to make coffee. A nice porch on the second floor, but too cold outside to take advantage of. The one full bath with period clawfoot tub/shower could prove a challenge for multiple guests but was fine for the two of us. Satellite TV and wi-fi worked fine. Owner was accommodating for our short stay. Offsite manager very pleasant and offered restaurant recommendations, etc. There is no offstreet parking but plenty of street parking, which can be a problem in Eureka Springs. This is a great option for Eureka Springs, certainly better than hotels. Try the Sunday brunch at Crescent Hotel and pay a visit to Turpentine Wildlife Reserve."

  • Perfect Location!

    "We all had such a great time in the Octagon House! We've stayed in many different places in Beaver Lake and this had the best location to the water. Granted the water level is low right now, can't be helped, but we had such an easy time getting from the house to the water. That made the frequent trips back to the house so much easier, having 3 kids under 7. Loved how all three kids slept perfectly in the bunk room without difficulties and than the adults could have the lower level to themselves. Everyday, the kids would take turns on the porch swing and loved it!! Just enough space so we could get away if needed. We were so grateful for the lower level entrance into the mud/laundry room then into the bathroom/shower. A little strange setup, but very useful. We have already talked about coming back next year! Beautiful views everyday and it's right across from the marina and then just across the lake from our little "Island" we love snorkeling and scuba diving at."

Beaver Lake Travel Tips

Beaver Lake Vacation Rentals in Northern Arkansas

Beaver Lake, Arkansas was developed in 1966 for recreation and as a water source. Until the lake was developed, the White River was the only water running through the area. The lake is actually the start of the White River located in northwest Arkansas in the Ozark Mountains. The lake is 28,370 acres in size, running just below Missouri. It has the distinction of being the first dam and lake on the White River between the two states. If you want a pleasant summer vacation where the population is at a minimum and the fun is neverending, Beaver Lake vacation rentals are your answer. While everyone else is heading to Disney, Staten Island, or the tropics, you can have Beaver Lake almost to yourself. By checking on VRBO, you will find plenty of vacation rentals for all sizes of families or groups looking to enjoy the amazing wonders of the lake and the surrounding area.

Beaver Lake Cabins and the History of the Lake Formation

Beaver Lake was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. They took the natural beauty surrounding the river to construct recreational facilities and parks. They built 12 parks total throughout the area with paved access roads. Beaver Lake and park offers 2,008 acres for camping and 650 campsites. Drinking water, showers, and restrooms are all located nearby. If you require something a little less primitive, there are Beaver Lake cabins near the park. It is possible to take day trips from the cabins to the parks. Around these sites are numerous hiking trails, bike paths, and wildlife. The rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains will rise around you covered with verdant green forests. During the summer, there are scheduled programs at an amphitheater there. The lake offers 487 miles of shoreline with limestone bluffs to add to the views.

Family Entertainment on the Water by Beaver Lake Homes

The 487 miles of shoreline at Beaver Lake present a plethora of recreational activities for couples, families, and even older generations. The most popular sport on the lake is boating with power boats, canoes, and kayaks. From the boats, fishing, swimming, or skiing are all possible. The lake is filled with smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, crappie, bream, white bass, channel, and spoonbill catfish. Every day you could catch your dinner to cook at your Beaver Lake homes. These vacation rentals in Arkansas are near the lake shores with docks and boat ramps. Beaver Lake is most notable for offering 40-pound stripers, a type of fish.
