"We loved our stay with GG over Fourth of July! They gave us great pointers of where to eat and go during our stay and made us feel right at home. The place was perfect and everything we needed. Next time we will pack less! Plan to stay again! The company and accommodations were wonderful!"Guest: Kristina Date of Stay: July 2014 Review Submitted: July 10, 2014View listing
"I booked a last minute trip for the fourth of July weekend and for some reason this cottage was available. Literally everything in town was booked, so I scratched my head a bit when I saw this was not rented. I spoke with the owner, who was a super cool guy and he confirmed it was still open, so I immediately booked it. This cottage is something out of a story book. Everything was perfect all the way down to the cool furnishings. I literally did not want to leave the property on outings! I wanted to soak in the chirping birds on the shaded front porch and read my book. I will definitely be booking this again. I already mentioned the owner was cool but this is what he said when I booked the place, "the only requirement is that you have a good time." Mission accomplished!

We really enjoyed our chats and appreciated the helpful recommendations about local sights and fantastic restaurants (some of the best BBQ we have ever had!). Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

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.
