Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Games Room with 2 Queen Beds, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8-17)

Set on 12 acres with stunning views of Lake Norfork in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, Anedodi is an exclusive cabin rental hideaway. Decked out with premium features throughout the house, decks and landscaped gardens. Every detail is impeccable, from the luxury organic bed linens to the giant egg bathtubs and natural wood, silk and wool decor. A cleansing experience for mind body and soul - the house has been designed to be 'green' and create a healthy, relaxing environment for your family.

Named after the Cherokee Indian word for 'adventure', there is plenty to keep everyone entertained. From exciting water sports, to fishing, hiking, biking, climbing, crystal mining, antiquing - or just relaxing on one of the plush daybeds or hammocks scattered around the extensive grounds.

The perfect respite from city life - all you can see is green trees, the clear fresh mountain water lake, deer, butterflies and hummingbirds. Anedodi really is a taste of paradise - a chance for you to kick back, experience new things as a family and have no cares in the world for an endless week of fun.

The large 600 sqft main deck is perfect for entertaining and could host an event for up to 100 people. If you are planning a wedding or a family event, there are plenty of stunning lake view locations for you to choose from throughout the 12 acres.

Have a dip in our 40 foot luxury heated pool (open April - October) then relax on the giant, plush daybeds or sun loungers, all with wonderful views of the lake. Try out your own personal 9-hole Frisbee Golf Course - Experience one of the most up and coming sports in America. Fun for all ages, test your skills through strategically placed baskets throughout our giant oaks. Also in the grounds is a horse shoe pit. Rainy days can be spent in the games room enjoying the pool table, table tennis, piano, or in the living room with a DVD library and local wildlife books.

The highlight of any trip to Lake Norfork is getting out on the beautiful clean, clear water. There are very strict guidelines restricting any development around the lake which is the reason it remains so natural, quiet and clean. Lake Norfork is one of the most exclusive lakes in the region. However these restrictions also applies to boat docks which are very limited, so there is not direct water access from the house. Fortunately, there is a full service marina only 5 minutes away which offers a variety of boats for rent, along with gas, supplies etc. It is impeccably maintained and has slopes for wheelchair access etc. If you have your own boat and trailer, there is ramp access less than a mile away.

We also have a 24 ft pontoon to offer you for rental during your stay. It comfortably seats up to 11 people or (1900 pounds maximum capacity) and comes fully equipped with life vests. We also have tubes and kneeboards available for rental.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Anedodi now has a sister property which sleeps 30 people - Equani Lodge, VRBO Listing #915590. It is just a 15 minute drive away, with stunning lake views, and a private pool.

About Hilary Altman

I run a luxury travel company based in New York. I have been organizing luxury tailor-made vacations around the world for 20 years.

Hilary Altman purchased this house in 2008

Why Hilary Altman chose Mountain Home

The area is completely unspoilt and natural with clean, clear water, more wildlife than the Amazon! And something to do in every season... however there were no luxury accommodations. We wanted to add a new element to the region - an eco-friendly luxury vacation rental.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic views of the lake, complete privacy of 12 acres and use of a private pool, frisbee golf course, lots of deck space and luxury accommodations all with ensuite bathrooms. The marina is just 4 miles away, from which you can rent a variety of boats and equipment to make sure you hit the lake in style.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So sorry it has taken me this long to get back to you. We had a GREAT time! The cabin was beautiful as well as all the surroundings. We plan to go back next year! And, we have spread the word to our friends and family that it is a wonderful place to visit!



Hope all is well with you.



Take care and thanks again for the lovely accommodations!

All the comforts of home in beautiful scenic Arkansas

  • 5 of 5

This was such a wonderful spring break getaway home! Fully stocked kitchen made cooking for our brood a snap and it truly felt like a luxury hotel stay with nice beds and linens, bathrooms outfitted with beautiful fixtures and a humongous tub, and beautiful grounds. We loved having our children discover the great outdoors, eat on the deck, or relax in the hammock by the pool. Day trips to George’s for trail hiking, and of course fishing on the lake were exactly what we needed to recharge before heading back to the big city. Thank you for excellent southern hospitality!

Perfect spot for our family get-together.

  • 5 of 5

We took our two sons, their wives and our two and a half year old granddaughter to Anedodi. We enjoyed the lake, pool, and privacy. The house was perfect for us with places to all be together, but yet each family had their own private areas. We hope to return!

secret garden

  • 5 of 5

The property is a brilliant allocation of space that leverages the beautiful surroundings at every opportunity. The layout maximizes the perception of size using a clever labyrinth of indoor and outdoor spaces with multiple access via paths, staircases and doors such that the initial modest front-view of the structure belies the generous offerings within, like the hidden entrance to a vast secret garden.

The spread made it easy to find some solace both physically and in the sense that the crowd felt far away but everyone was safe and sound just up or down or over there in some other area. It was the kind of place where not even the kids got bored, so once we got there, we just stayed and, except for groceries, we didn't need to get in the cars again until we left.

The house was perfect for out family of 8. The pool was the real winner of the week.

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well maintained and the photos do not do it justice. Sean was a wonderful host and responded quickly to all our questions. The boat that is available to rent was in perfect working condition and the hours on the lake priceless. I would definitely stay at this home again.

Amazing accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house so we’ll we booked a week for next year. The house was up to date and well kept. There was a lot of extras to keep the children entertained. I highly recommend Anedodi.

Loved our stay—the pool, the deck—just awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

We booked Anedodi for a family vacation. We had nine adults, four kids, and two dogs. The beds were comfortable, and the house had most of what we needed. We did choose to run into town at one point to buy ketchup, mustard, paper plates, gallon baggies, and we needed plastic forks. (Just thought I would note these things so future renters can plan ahead!)

We rented a pontoon and explored the lake, which was just breathtaking. The staff at Tracy Marina were very helpful.

I would absolutely recommend this get away to anyone just looking to relax, and enjoy pool time with family! Pain is a matc I would absolutely recommend this get away to anyone just looking to relax, and enjoy pool time with family!
