About the property

Lake view 4bdrm 2 bth 2 decks outside hot tub and fire pit gas grill

Feel at home in this gorgeous, one level, newly renovated treasure. You will enjoy the comfort and style you deserve for your vacation. Relax on the completely covered top balcony or the lower sun deck and enjoy the 180 degree view of Beaver Lake. There is a fire pit and a large Jacuzzi for you to enjoy the outdoors on the cold nights.

The master bedroom is elegantly done to be a private retreat for you to enjoy the view. It has a king-size bed for your comfort as well as a private bath. Each bedroom off the hallway also have there own unique decor along with very comfortable inviting King size beds with access to the hall bath. The bunk room has 1 double and 2 twin beds. Each bedroom has its own large screen TV.

After a fun day on the water enjoy cooking in the fully stocked kitchen and having dinner alfresco style on the balcony. There is a nice dining table and chairs along with rockers and gliders to enjoy the steak you just prepared on the gas grill. Or eat inside at the large dining table, enjoying your view from the expansive wall of windows. Either way, you can always keep your eyes on the water. If cooking is not your thing there are many restaurants close by for you to enjoy.

Get cozy on the extremely comfortable extra large living room sectional with a throw and a nice fire in the wood stove as you watch a movie on the largest flat screen in the house. There is also a smaller sectional to relax on if you would rather stare at the water than TV.

For your convenience there is a washer and dryer and a two car garage with room for parking in the driveway as well.

The owners private dock is just a short walk from the house. Putting your boat in the water is a breeze with Prairie Creek marina just a couple miles away and the HWY 12 launch ramp, which is even closer.

About Phill and Teresa Cowan

My husband is an Arkansas native. We met in California where I am from and decided to raise are 3 children in Arkansas. We moved back to Rogers in 1992 and bought a lake house in 2001. We love the relaxing lake life.

Phill and Teresa Cowan purchased this house in 2015

Why Phill and Teresa Cowan chose Beaver Shores

We bought what we now call The Blue Heron because of its location and view. It was going to be the perfect spot for my aging mother to move to when she was ready. But she decided the move would be to difficult and stayed in California. We knew the house was a gem and wanted to make good use of it so we decided it would be perfect for a vacation home. We have been enjoying renting vacation homes for years on VRBO so we thought this would be a good way for others to enjoy this home. And that is exactly how it has worked out. Its been lots of fun seeing families having such a great time walking to the lake, relaxing on the dock, fishing with their kids, enjoying the hot tub, warming up to the fire pit, so many things that make a lake vacation so fun an relaxing.

What makes this house unique

When we first moved to Prairie Creek I went to meet one of my new neighbors. An older Hungarian couple. They were so sweet an invited me in. When I walked in the house my eyes were drawn to the absolutely beautiful view. Our lake house we had just bought also had a view but not like this one. Years passed by and it became necessary for my neighbors to move closer to town and eventually their home went up for sale. We were fortunate enough to be able to buy it. When we walked in there was that beautiful veiw that struck me so many years earlier. Now so many people can enjoy it and that makes me happy.

The Pictures Don't Lie

We had a very relaxing stay. The house is exactly like the pictures and Teresa and Phil are very gracious hosts. We would have stayed longer if we could have and will be back as soon as we can.

Absolutly perfect !!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Blue Heron last week and loved it! The property is beautiful, the views are outstanding, the décor is to die for. There was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and be comfortable or come together at the large dining table. The deck off the kitchen is great and also big enough for everyone to sit. The dock was a bit of a hike for us older people but no worries, you can drive. It is also wonderful, plenty of room for all the kids to jump in and have fun with great furniture for the adults to sit and watch, until they give in and jump in with the kids! We rented a boat from Prairie Creek marina and were able to put it in the extra boat slip. The kids loved having London, the owner's black lab around to play with and swim with.

Over all a terrific place to make lasting memories. We would love to come back.

Thanks Teresa

Gorgeous lakeview, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven enjoyed the Blue Heron for our annual lake vacation last week and couldn't have been more pleased with the location and beautifully decorated, comfortable, clean, organized home! We've stayed in multiple vacation homes and the Blue Heron was the absolute best in meeting our family needs plus exceeding our expectations! All enjoyed the house decks and boat dock each morning and evening, experiencing nature both in the yard and on the water. The owners live close and were only a phone call away, but we never had to contact them. The neighborhood is quiet and well maintained. You won't be disappointed if you stay at this vacation rental! We plan to return again. Thank you Teresa and Phil!

Fantastic rental home!

  • 5 of 5

We travel a lot and stay in VRBO properties multiple times per year. This one did NOT disappoint! Well appointed with furnishings, linens (a mark of a top notch VRBO in my opinion), and kitchen supplies. There was plenty of space for our group of 6 to spread out and relax. We enjoyed the views and spending time down on the dock. The area has something to offer everyone - foodies, art lovers (the FREE Crystal Bridges museum), children's museum, shopping, and plenty of options for active, nature lovers. We will be back!

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, but the dock was better. Spent the better part of the day on or near the water on the fantastic dock. We turned on the music and floated, laid-out in the shade or the sun, boated, waked and jet skied the day away.
