About Sandra Berry

I manage Cedar Lodge Arkansas in beautiful Bella Vista, Arkansas. My husband, Dave, and I bought the property in 2006. Cedar Lodge is a magnificent lakefront property nestled in the Ozarks in Northwest Arkansas. My goal to is make this a rustic but elegant lodge, a comfortable refuge whether you are looking for a peaceful getaway, a family reunion, or business meeting. Dave and I have been blessed with a wonderful family, including 3 daughters, 1 son and 6 grandchildren.

Sandra Berry purchased this lodge in 2006

Why Sandra Berry chose Arkansas

We love the beauty of the Ozarks and enjoy sharing it with family and friends. We have always enjoyed the outdoors and took our family camping for many years. When my husband retired we fell in love with this lakefront property, my love of the trees and hills, and his love of the water were a perfect fit. We truly believe Northwest Arkansas is a paradise.

What makes this lodge unique

Many guests don't want to leave Cedar Lodge once they get there, but if it is activities you are looking for, we are only 10 minutes away from several golf courses, 20 minutes from the world famous Crystal Bridges Art Museum and Sam Walton museum. 20 to 30 minutes away is many choices of shopping and restaurants. The area is filled with hiking and biking trails and a river to kayak to enjoy the beauty of the Ozarks.

An impeccable home in a picturesque setting that will delight the most critical traveler, vacation connoisseur or professional or conference group. Well maintained and the owners are amazing. The beds which so many travelers complain about are all great quality as are the linens...the kitchen is gourmet and if you have a chance, ask to have Chef Al cook a meal for you...we had the best ribs that just fell off the bone with all the trimmings for $12.50 a head and it was better than any restaurant we went to all week. I have travelled all over the World and I can tell you this property is FIRST CLASS and will not disappoint the most discriminating traveler........

Paradise on Loch Lomond

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion in June at Cedar Lodge and had a fabulous time. The home is beautiful and spacious and the owners are very generous with all the amenities they provide. Outside there are all kinds of toys such as a lily pad, a slide with running water, paddle boards, canoes, life jackets, etc. We had such a good time that we never even bothered to open up the hot tub. Shampoo, body wash and towels are all provided too. Of course, the weather was perfect so that added to our enjoyment. There are a lot of steps, however, both inside and out. And we were a little disappointed that all of the outside lights were not working as well as the microwave in the kitchen. We would definitely recommend booking this lodge for your stay. We wish we had had one more day just to enjoy everything the home has to offer.

No words!!

  • 5 of 5

Truly there are no words to describe this place. The decorating is just phenomenal! Even when you think you have seen it all, there is still something you've missed. There is so much to do there without bringing anything at all. It was still cool when we went but we still tried out the wake boards and the canoe. We had right around 20 people. It was roomy and then some. The boys caught several nice fish which they released. I only hope we can go back sometime. It was a great weekend The only thing that was little tough is that we had some in our group that struggled with going up and down the hill to the lake...but was wonderful just the same.

Beautiful home! Wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property 2 different times with our family. The property is beautiful! I would give this a 6 rating if I could. The home is roomy! It has a wonder play house that our grandkids loved and they still talked about it. They said they missed this place because we have to go somewhere further south of us recently instead of back to Bella Vista. The kitchen was beyond awesome. The pantry is fully stocked. They have things that you don't even think about. The owners of this home know true hospitality. The game room/movie room is great! We pretty much hang out in the game room and play room. We love it!!!!
