About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Screened in Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Property Name - Bayside Cottage

A romantic get away is waiting for you on the waters edge. Come and enjoy this unique 1 bedroom that is perfect for couples or a small family. The cottage is located down on the edge of the lake and you will need to walk down the stairs to get there. It is not too bad, but if you have trouble managing stairs, you may want to rethink this location. Once your there you can tuck your self into your cozy double bed while the kids are sleeping on the pull out sofa in the living room. The beautifully appointed deck over hangs the water and is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or relax in the evening while the sun goes down. Fish from the deck or just watch the bobbers bounce from the sofa and then just reel them in! You will enjoy the BBQ grill that sits near by and can cook that meal right there. If you get too hot, just wade into the water on the stone steps that lead you right into the lake.

The new screened in porch outfitted with a wood burning fireplace and 50' monitor will provide a private place for you or the kids to watch that football game. The porch has its own separate entrance and is not connected to the doorway of the main little cottage, but is only two steps away. Enjoy the outdoor speakers as they play from your iPod over the lake while you dance under the stars. Wash the lake away in the Japanese shower room before settling down for dinner. It is all there and a perfect romantic spot right on the water.

If you ever decide to leave, there is always historic Hot Springs with the bathhouses, spas and live music at the Arlington Hotel downtown. The casino is open year round and the horse racing season starts in January. There are rivers all around and canoe rental trips are always a family favorite. Party barges can be rented on the lake and there are many float up restaurants that are wonderful.

For larger groups we have a larger property available at VRBO #312624.

Great little get away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting on the lake and still close to down town. Very peaceful and quiet! Bed is super comfy and kitchen is stocked with cooking supplies as well as coffee and some condiments. There's fishing gear available in the porch. It rained a couple of the days I was there which was nice. The owner is super nice and easy to reach. On the down side, the satellite only worked intermittently and I couldn't get the DVR to work at all. Not a big deal except when it was raining and I was stuck inside. There truly are 50 steps so plan your packing accordingly if this bothers you lugging stuff back up. I believe the property manager can get groceries for you if needed before you arrive. Also, not a biggie, but something to keep in mind.... The oven knobs are worn enough that you can't really see the numbers. I was pretty sure I had it on 400 degrees one night but apparently I was wrong as I burned my pizza. Overall a cozy little place to stay and pretty easy to get to. Will definitely go back again!

Little Things Add Up

  • 2 of 5

First impression was not good. Cigarette butts left in planters outside, inside of refrigerator had dog hairs in it, freezer needs to be wiped out, microwave had not been wiped down on outside (could see dried food around controls and door), inside of microwave had crumbs and dried food, the soap dispensers for both bathroom sinks were only a quarter full, there was not soap or shower gel at all for either shower, no wash cloths at all for bathrooms, no firewood at all (I had read reviews and went to the upper house and got some each night), no blankets for lounging (only for bed), and no hair dryer at a lake cottage. Two bowls had standing oil in them, but had been put away as clean. Most of this I would attribute to housekeeping/property management. Lack of attention to detail and cleanliness was a turnoff. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay for 3 nights with our 11-year-old son and had a good time fishing, exploring, and relaxing.

Beautiful Cottage for Two

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this quaint cottage on the water for our 10th anniversary. It's tastefully decorated down to the deck sofa and chairs! We loved the screened in living area with wood-burning fireplace and flat screen. Everything the two of us needed and more!

The bedroom is suited with a double bed which was fine for two, however the fold out futon in the small T.V. room off kitchen could only provide accommodations for young child in case your planning for more than two. Would definitely visit again!
