You can pull up to the shore in front of the house for easy loading and unloading. The shore right in front of the house is a great spot to swim, float on a raft, paddle/fish around in a kayak or canoe, or sit under the famous (ok, not famous, but it is cool) mushroom shade tree by the water. You can fish in the lake in front of the cabin or ease back in to Budd Creek for some excellent fishing. Our cove is also a great place to teach kids how to water ski. The house is located in a secluded area just off the main bay of the lake.

Bring plenty of food so you can grill on the deck or go to one of the many good restaurants nearby.

Please come be our guest and relax and enjoy yourself!

About Mark Conine

Our family lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, and we have always wanted an authentic lakefront log home that our family and guests could enjoy.

Why Mark Conine chose Giles

You truly feel like you are "getting away" when you spend time at The Hideaway Cabin. We believe spending time at the lake strengthens relationships and builds memories that last a lifetime. Our goal in renting this cabin is for our guests to make lifelong memories with their friends and family as well.

What makes this Cabin unique

The Hideaway makes guests feel like they are "getting a break" from every day routine. It is close to two marinas, three swimming/picnic/boat ramp areas, two golf courses, and several restaurants. You can swim, boat, fish, kayak, canoe, or sit in the shade all at the flat shoreline below the cabin. When you combine The Hideaway with one of the cleanest and most scenic lakes in the United States, you get a vacation that is sure to provide your family with the fun and relaxation you are seeking.

                                                            Wonderful Cabin on a Beautiful Lake!

                                                            Linda M.

                                                            We are from Texas, and our kids live in South Carolina and Kansas with their spouses. This was the perfect meeting place for our family for Christmas! Sitting in a beautiful cabin in the woods on a cold winter's day with a fire warming us from the fireplace enjoying family

                                                            time, great home cooked food, and competitive Joker games (our family's favorite board game) was a picture perfect Christmas for all of us! The owner, Mark, has been so easy to work with, and communication quick and informative. Our family travels often, and we were all impressed by this cabin and location. Thank you again for sharing your home with us! Happy New Year's to all!

                                                            Spent a few days with family for Thanksgiving. The cabin is perfect for a weekend stay or a extended stay. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax. It is right on the lake so it has great access to fishing, swimming and boating. My family definitely plan to return next summer.

                                                            Probably the best VRBO we've ever stayed at

                                                            Jennifer M.

                                                            The house was perfect. Clean, comfortable, and even had tissues on the side table. There were small things like this, e.g., enough dishwashing soap to actually run the dishwasher. Helpful literature about the area. And the walk to the lake and the lake area was a paradise. We can't say how great this place was. We even day dreamed about trying to buy the place from the owners. Thanks so much!

                                                            Higden, AR, USA

                                                            ***Greers Ferry Lake*** The lake is truly an outdoor paradise popular for water sports, boating, cliff diving, camping, hiking, fishing, and four-wheeling. The area extends from Ozark foothills to the edge of the delta and includes two beautiful lakes, the Little Red River, some of the most beautiful caverns, springs, and waterfalls in the world as well as lots of trails for hiking and four-wheeling. ***Boating*** The lake is 40,000 acres of deep sparkling clear water and fun. The lake has a unique layout that allows room for everyone to ski, tube, fish, houseboat, scuba dive, and swim. Launch your boat at nearby Cherokee Recreation Area (4.5 miles away), Shiloh Park, or Narrows Park. You can drive your boat over to the cabin and dock it in our neighborhood boat dock! BOAT SLIP INCLUDED!! ***Fishing*** Greers Ferry Lake has superb fishing throughout the year. Every game fish native to the state has been stocked by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission. The lake holds the state record for walleye and striped bass. Other fish like channel catfish, largemouth and white bass, and crappie are abundant and attract fishermen from all over the country. The Little Red River that runs out of Greers Ferry Lake offers additional challenges for rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout. Some of the best fishing on the lake is right in front of our cabin! ***Nature Trails*** Nature trails abound. All you have to do is walk down to the lake and follow the shoreline for the easiest most enjoyable hike. There are developed trails all over the area and an especially nice one winding up Sugar Loaf Mountain, an island in the lake northwest (through the Narrows) from the house, which affords breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding countryside from its summit which is 500 feet above the surface area of the lake. ***Golf*** The golf courses are gorgeous with great layouts. Tannenbaum Golf Club (Golf Digest Rated Top 5 "Best Places To Play In Arkansas and Golf Digest Rated 4.5 Stars), Mountain Ranch Golf Club (Golf Magazine's #2 Best Public Course In Arkansas and Golf Digest Rated 4.5 Stars) , Lost Creek Golf Club, Indian Hills Golf Club, Red Apple Inn Golf Club ***Horseback Riding*** Red River Riding Stables are 25 minutes away. 14085 Hwy 16E, Fairfieled Bay, AR. The owner is Steve Swenson. Steve built the huge old fashioned stable. ***Restaurants*** You can boat over Jansen's Lakefront Restaurant, or drive 10 minutes to eat at Mac's Place (good fish and bbq!), Largemouth Pizza, El Rebezo Authentic Mexican, Sonic, Subway and Bentleys Cafe, which is a local favorite. For more upscale dining go west on Hwy 16 to Fairfield Bay - Indian Hills Country Club, Bogey's, and The Little Red Restaurant. ***Grocery Store/Supplies*** Family Market Grocery, Dollar General, and Ace Hardware are close (approx 7 miles) and a great place to buy groceries, toiletries, and supplies. ***Bridal Veil Water Falls*** A half hour or so southeast are some of the best waterfalls in the area. Bridal Veil Falls are named for their similarity to a bride's veil. So, don't fret if the rain keeps you from boating. Just hop in your car and check out these gems. You can park so close that you can be at the top of the falls within a couple minutes and reach the bottom a few minutes later. If you like to rock hop, follow the stream south and take a left at the first fork to find the second set of falls. ***Flea Markets and Antique Stores*** If you like antiquing and flea markets you will be in heaven. There are dozens of shops to discover literally in any direction you choose to drive. Of course, Hwy 65 between Conway and Branson offers the most popular spots, but try a local favorite - Tumbling Shoals Flea Market near Heber Springs. She's open every day but Tuesday and I promise you won't leave empty-handed. ***Cardboard Boat Races*** The world championship cardboard boat races are held on Sandy Beach in Heber Springs the weekend of July 28th. This event is a blast! The boats are creative, funny, and amazing. ***Blanchard Springs Caverns*** Breathtaking caverns and gorgeous springs and waterfalls are less than an hour's drive North. Take a tour of the cave to beat the heat in the summer. The cave stays a comfortable 58 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. The cave is often called the “living cave” because its constantly changing and growing. The main room is the size of three football fields and has a 100 foot ceiling. Be sure to check out the springs and waterfalls while you are there. ***Buffalo River*** An hour northwest is the best canoeing, kayaking, and floating in the region. The Buffalo River is simply unsurpassed in beauty. The completely pristine natural (undammed) river runs 150 miles past 500 foot tall sandstone and limestone bluffs. Almost all of it is managed by the National Park Service. You can rent a canoe, raft, or kayak at any outfitter and experience the most relaxing day of your life.
