The perfect escape from civilization ... Moon Shadow Lodge is set deep in a primeval forest ... mystical and magical in all four seasons ... perfect for friends ... lovers ... honeymooners ... family reunions ... church groups ... business associates ... film makers and nature lovers.
The Lodge rises out of the ground on a solid foundation of Ozark Native Stone with White Cedar Logs and huge insulated picture windows framing a panoramic view of beautiful Greers Ferry Lake.
With 2800 square feet of interior floor space and 1800 square feet of decks and covered breezeways ... the Lodge has a total of 4600 square feet of enjoyable spaces ... like a giant treehouse.
Turning left from scenic Alum Cave Road you will come upon the gated entrance to the Cascadia Wilderness ... framing an incredible view of Greers Ferry Lake ... 500 feet below ... with the Ozark Mountain Highlands rising in the distance.
Here is where your adventure begins. After passing through the gate you will descend down Cascadia Pass ... through one mile of jungle like terrain ... steep and winding with panoramic views ... until you arrive at Moon Shadow Lodge and Water Step Cove ... a remote paradise ... almost famous.
The Cascadia Wilderness is ideal four wheeler country ... with miles of woodland trails to explore ... along the lake ... through mountain passes ... and down deep, shady hollows ... bring your Jeep, Suzuki, Honda or Polaris ... let down the top ... put on a bandana ... and follow the trails ...in any season you will have a blast. Be safe and respect the forest!
Why travel overseas when you can enjoy an exotic and luxurious waterfront lodge... in the center of the USA!
Disappear into the emerald forests of the Ozark Mountains ... hide out in the Arkansas Highlands ... remote, relaxing, luxurious and fun.
The calming effect is amazing!! Become one with Nature!
Enjoy the blazing summer sunsets, scarlet moonlights and stellar constellations ... listen to an incredible chorus of birds, insects, whispering winds, rustling leaves, lapping waves and trickling waters. On a clear night you should turn off the lights ... sit on the deck and enjoy the sensations.
With a good camera, some good hiking or climbing shoes, a backpack, bug spray and a tall walking stick ... you will completely forget about your smart phone or tablet!
The Lodge is nestled deep in a hollow between mountain and lake ... with a heavenly place to swim, fish, dive, boat ... or just relax on a big flat rock to catch the brilliant sunsets lighting up the sky.
On either side of Water Step Cove lies Moon Shadow Beach ... with a beautiful view of Sugarloaf Island National Trail rising out of the lake to the east ... and the brilliant sunsets that slowly disappear behind Choctaw Ridge to the west. The soft shale beach is interspersed with stacks of wide flat rocks making it easy to step or dive into the clear blue water.
Instead of sea shells ... here you can hunt for magical "Aetites," the Greek word for Eaglestones. These unusual looking stones ... a mixture of iron, sand and clay ... were once rented as magic amulets to pregnant ladies by sorcerers in ancient pagan times to protect their unborn child from the evil demoness with many names ... such as Lilith or Gello. Some stones are quite interesting, beautiful and useful as ashtrays or baby shower gifts.
We also rent a 30 foot double decker party barge with a 140 horse engine capable of pulling a tube ... complete with an experienced boat captain ... to safely pilot your group to wherever you choose.
The pictures fail to fully illustrate the beauty of the Lodge and it's incredible setting ... so we created a face book page for "Moon Shadow Lodge" where you can go to learn more about this special place ... or share photographs and post stories about your exotic experience in this Ozark Mountain Paradise.
Greers Ferry Lake is huge ... over 40,000 acres spread across two counties with pristine waters, world class fishing ... and no recorded sightings of piranhas, sharks or crocodiles!
A prior world record Walleye was caught not far from the Lodge ... and below the John F. Kennedy Dam on the Little Red River you will find world record Trout!
