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, golf retreat,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 Bella Vista

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.

We will be back! Amazing property that made our annual business planning retreat extra special.

  • 5 of 5

The setting was superb for our business meetings. We were able to meet in one room (several choice settings) as a complete team of 15 (20 would have been just as easy) and we had breakout meeting in 5 separate locations. The property, lake, and magnificent view was inspiring and a place of peaceful rest — just what we were seeking. Really enjoyed the meals with the three extra large dining room tables in a picturesque setting and background. We had a team member catch a trophy bass from the dock. The owners expend tons of effort to ensure every inch of the property is loaded with fun and ready for use — nothing seemed to be off limits. We kayaked, canoed, played horseshoes, fished, played pool, and they even had a large outdoor fire pit ready to light (due to county burn ban we didn’t use). I highly recommend this retreat home for large family gatherings and meetings of groups of 12 to 20. Fascinating place to stay where there is a nook for everyone and every activity. We will be back!

The property was so amazing.

  • 5 of 5

It was beyond our expectation. You can read and look all you want but we were so surprised. The house, the view were all the very best. Everyone was so nice and easy to talk to. My family loved the accommodations. We all want to come back.

Beautiful and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Lodge when our son got married in nearby Cooper Memorial Chapel. It was a fabulous place for the entire wedding party to stay. Everyone was very comfortable in their accommodations and enjoyed all the outdoor spaces in which to gather. The downstairs game room was also a big hit. Sandra was so kind and helpful in ensuring we had everything we needed during our stay. We definitely hope to return to the Lodge for family gatherings in the future.

We had our family Christmas gathering on New Year's weekend and it was amazing. Plenty of living space for smaller groups to break off for board games, watching football, etc. The playhouse and toy closet for kids are great. Very well stocked kitchen; we cooked an entire Christmas dinner. Having two ovens and two refrigerators is a real plus. Most importantly, Ms. Berry was very friendly, accommodating and easy to work with. Worth every penny, even in winter with no water activities.

The BEST resort for a family reunion hands down!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cedar Lodge for our family Christmas and were amazed at all the details, decorating, and peaceful relaxed atmosphere we were met with the minute we walked in the door. Most of our family lives in the area anyway, but had no idea that the lodge would offer such an amazing surprise. Best Christmas Ever! THANK YOU CEDAR LODGE!!!
