  • family get-away

    "This cabin is so nice and comfortable. Lots of room. Nice get-away. Secluded but yet only 2 minutes from town. My family spent our vacation here and would definitely rent this cabin again. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating."

  • Perfect for our Group!

    "I stayed in this house for a retreat. It was as beautiful as the listing photos. The scenery was wonderful, and was so peaceful. The house was spotless and served our needs very well. Mr Bob was terrific and very helpful, and polite. He also has a wonderful personality! I would love to come back again, someday. I will definitely refer this property to others."

  • Maggie Girls 1969

    "Eight great lifelong friends had a wonderful weekend! This is an annual tradition and we have stayed in many cabins, houses, resorts, etc. This home, by FAR, is the best we have rented. We plan to visit every year and we won't be looking for anything better because I honestly don't think one exist. A great home. A wonderful owner who was so very helpful. We had a great time!"

  • Peaceful stay at a wonderful lake HOME !

    "We recently spent the week at this HOME and had a wonderful time. I stress the word home because that is how we felt, it was comfy and welcoming. The lake view is great-the entire wall of the front room is floor to ceiling windows. There were just 3 adults on this trip, my husband, myself and my 85 year old mother in law. She had a bedroom on the main floor and we took the master upstairs. All the beds were extremely comfy with nice linens. Bathrooms had plenty of towels, etc. The neighbors were so friendly (it seems most of the neighbors are there weekends and summer only). Since we brought our dog we were so pleased to find out how pet friendly this location was...there is a shaded fenced area with direct access to the house in the kitchen and the large back deck is gated to provide another spot for fido. Our little Westie spent a lot of time on the deck watching the lake activity. We had planned to cook most of our meals at the house so did not find the lack of restaurants to be a problem. The owner, Tony, was easy to work with and provided feedback quickly. I highly recommend this location."

Greers Ferry Lake Travel Tips

Greers Ferry Lake Vacation Rentals for a Quiet Holiday

The Ozark Mountains of Arkansas are the state's jewels, where one can experience wildlife, verdant forests, and a variety of fun activities. Greers Ferry Lake is one area in northern Arkansas open for recreation and fun all year long. The height of the season is in summer but even then, you will find little tourism to endanger your fun. Some places in the United States can become overpopulated during summer, reducing the excitement with long lines and high costs. With Greers Ferry Lake vacation rentals, you can have a budget vacation you can plan on your own. A simple click on VRBO will show you the choices you have in vacation rentals around the Greers Ferry Lake region.

Greers Ferry Lake Cabins and the Geography of the Lake

Greers Ferry Lake is one of 12 locations developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the 1960s. The lake sits 60 miles north of Little Rock which is also the airport you would need to fly into for your vacation. Greers Ferry Lake is actually two lakes that are connected by a gorge called the Narrows. The gorge is filled with water, allowing the lakes to combine for 40,500 acres of space. There is over 340 miles of shoreline dotted with Greers Ferry Lake cabins. To get onto the lake, there are several old streets which are now boat ramps, like West Main Street in Herber Springs. Herber Springs is the largest town close to the lakes where you can purchase supplies. The most direct route to the lake from Little Rock is Interstate 107 to 64 to 5 or you can take I-40 up to 65 and over to 92, depending on where your vacation rental is in relation to the lake and towns.

The History of Greers Ferry Lake Homes

Many are unaware of how the area around Greers Ferry Lake homes began. It surprises most to learn the lake was not always as large or pleasant as it is today. Early farmers of the area built a city called Higden on the land that is now covered by the lake. Flooding from the rivers of Arkansas caused the city to be covered time and again which is why they eventually abandoned the city, moving only the cemetery. The area was then allowed to flood as much as it wanted and the U.S. Army Corps decided to form a dam to keep the lake level at a certain amount. Higden’s original town was lost but the settlers rebuilt on higher ground. Residents and visitors have noted that some of the old buildings are still standing under the water creating a watery “ghost town.” Anyone who enjoys a good diving adventure might wish to see just how well these old buildings stand underneath the water.

Dry Recreation in Greers Ferry Lake and Surrounding Areas

Boating, diving, fishing, and other watersports are available at Greers Ferry Lake but those who wish for a bit more adventure on dry land will find there is plenty to do. When on vacation at Greers Ferry Lake vacation rentals, you can enjoy camping, golf, hiking, and biking. If you bring children on your trip, they may enjoy an evening out in a tent while the parents remain indoors with comfort at their fingertips. For golfers, there are four courses: Lost Creek, Mountain Ranch, Red Apple, and Tannebaum. All of these clubs allow visitors to make reservations.

Hiking is possible at two locations: the Mossy Bluff & Buckeye Trail, and Sugar Loaf Mountain Island National Recreation trails. Mossy bluffs provide 1.6 miles of self-guided hiking around Little Red River and Greers Ferry Dam. There are posts along the trail to go with a brochure explanation of those locations. Sugar Loaf area is another of the parks built by the U.S. Army Corps; you can hike 540 feet above sea level to the top of the peak.
