  • Lake Living

    "I have been going to Hardy since childhood at a YWCA camp, so it has special meaning to me. This is the first time I have rented a place, as I have friends I usually stay with, and I invited my son and daughter-in-law for the weekend. I arrived the first night with a girlfriend, and we were so impressed with everything. We sat on the deck as the sun went down, watching an amazing sky filled with lightening in the distance (no thunder), which illuminated and reflected off the lake. It couldn't have been a better introduction to the house. The two back bedrooms facing the lake have terrific views, so in the early morning it was equally beautiful seeing mist rising from the water. The location is quiet, and the homes adjacent and across the lake are well-maintained. I have skied Lake Thunderbird, so I am familiar with the layout. This little cove is too shallow for motorboats, but it can handle pontoon, or paddle boats. I used my canoe to paddle over to see friends who live on the lake. The cove is also too shallow for swimming, but I would gather the Summer months would make that a good thing when there is so many boats coming and going. The home is decorated as if it were a private home, and not a typical rental unit. The kitchen was even stocked with a KitchenAid mixer, which really surprised me. The appliances were top-notch. The bedding was cute, the decor was well-done, the bathrooms clean and nicely appointed. The house is clean-as-a-whistle. I had some leftover cake from a party, and actually found a cake plate with a cake dome to cover it; and I also needed scissors for a gift, and found them in a drawer. I noticed bandaids in the medicine cabinet, including large size toiletries. A lot of thought went into stocking this house. My only suggestions would be a hand-rail inside the bathtub (it was hard to get up without one); a full-length mirror; and the driveway swept clear of the Hickory nuts at this time of year. I swept it as I was afraid someone might slip on one, plus, they are very messy as they are driven over. All-in-all, I couldn't have asked for a better place to be in the Hardy area. (Oh, and it was nice to have a dog-friendly home for well-behaved pets. Its obvious the owners love dogs from all their great pictures and decor.) I would most certainly rent this lovely home again should the occasion arise, and will recommend it to friends."

  • Beyond Amazing!

    "This was my husband and I's first family vacation along with a renewal of our wedding vows. From the very first contact on, the owners were absolutely wonderful to work with! You definitely get your money's worth with a true lakefront home with plenty of space. We had enough beds for everyone and they even had more bedding supplies. Also, when they say 'fully stocked kitchen', they mean it! They give very helpful directions, just be cautious of the steep drive (which is to be expected when you are right there on the water!). They even left places to see/do while we were staying there. Next time we travel back to the area, we will be sure to try and stay here! We loved every moment! Thank you!"

Arkansas Travel Tips

Making Your Way to Arkansas Vacation Rentals

The Little Rock National Airport is the largest airport in Arkansas. The airport hosts most major airlines in North America and has regular commercial connections to most major cities in the U.S. There are three smaller regional airports that host domestic and regional flights in and around the state. These can be found in Texarkana, Fort Smith and the Northwest region. For a more leisurely way to get around, why not do part of your journey on the Texas Eagle railroad? The route runs through the state of Arkansas from the northeast to the southwest, and stops in towns and cities such as Walnut Ridge, Little Rock, Malvern and Texarkana. The train runs twice daily. Because of the many outdoor attractions, most people like to drive around Arkansas. If you are not traveling by car from your hometown, you can arrange a rental from any one of the regional airports.

Visitors to Arkansas Cabins

Arkansas has earned a reputation for being the "Nature State." It has vast wilderness areas where vehicles are not allowed and the only way to explore is on foot or horseback. The landscape is made up of wide fertile valleys, mountains and thick forested areas. The Northwest part of Arkansas forms part of the Ozark mountain range. This wealth of natural assets attracts those who enjoy nature and the outdoors. There is a large number of local outfitters that offer guided trails and excursions through the different regions. If you enjoy hunting or fishing, there are many wilderness areas where you can spend your vacation time. Hiking enthusiasts can follow nature trails and camp at remote wilderness campsites.

It is not just the sporting enthusiasts who will enjoy the region. Arkansas has a rich cultural heritage. There are several important Native American sites, Civil War battle sites, and museums detailing the history and culture of the state. Those with an interest in American culture and history can enjoy visiting the various attractions.

Top Things to See and Do near Arkansas Lake Homes

Arkansas is a destination where you can really have fun exploring the outdoors. Pack the bicycles, canoes and hiking boots before you head off to your destination. The Ozark Mountain region in particular offers a wealth of adventure activities. The most popular are the scenic hiking trails that traverse the mountain slopes and explore the thick forests. Another favorite pastime is to explore the region on horseback. Mountain bikers can spend days exploring the many challenging biking trails in Arkansas. Choose from cross country climbs to some thrilling sections of single-track trails. If you are on a family vacation, you can spend some time on the rivers paddling and fishing. Golfers can also enjoy a few rounds of golf on championship golf courses designed by Robert Trent-Jones.

Best Season to Travel to Arkansas

The majority of Arkansas enjoys a humid subtropical climate which results in hot humid summers and cold dry winters. The northern regions of the state have a more temperate climate, owing to the higher elevation and mountainous regions. Your season of choice for traveling will largely depend on what activities you want to do. The winter months see snow over most of the northern region and snow sports can be enjoyed. In the summertime, the rainfall generally is characterized by dramatic thunderstorms which are relatively short-lived. As long as you are adequately prepared for rain, summertime is a great time of year to explore the many natural attractions that the state has to offer.
