Photos and Description of the Sylvan Shores vacation house rental

Spacious Lakeview Suite That Can Sleep 2 To 4 Guests


A VRBO member for only 4 years, this well appointed suite has 91 reviews, more than any other property over the same time period. Before you even go inside you realize this place is special. The custom deck offers an exquisite hot tub, in which you can star gaze through the sky portal in the deck above. Two tables for four present different perspectives of the forest below, and another on the upper deck gives you a heavenly view of the lake and the mountains beyond. All sorts of song birds are busy coming and going from the hanging bird feeder that seems to be floating in space. And everywhere you look is another potted or hanging plant. You will be impressed before you ever go inside.

Jack will walk you through the suite to explain the amenities and features, starting with a king bedroom with a comfy leather love seat, flat screen TV, and even a "white noise" fan for those who require it. The coffee corner is separate from either bedroom, and serves as a place to sit and talk while enjoying the art work. The adjoining hall displays four original drawings of St. Louis classics, and includes a 1904 photo of the original Farris wheel at the worlds fair.

The bathroom is efficient and exceptionally clean, with soft bath towels. But you don't have to use your bath towel for the hot tub, a nice big beach towel is provided. Of course extra toilet paper, bar soap, hair drier and even an iron come with the bath.

The kitchenette is just that, providing conveniences such as a choice of paper bowls and plates or glass bowls and plates. Plastic knives and forks or stainless, your choice. Great coffee cups, the kind that hold enough coffee so you can sit outside on the deck and wake up slowly. The microwave sits atop the small refrigerator that has three ice trays, and next to it is a tidy bar sink. Then there is a toaster, some complementary coffee (not packets), and the coffee maker (filters included). Eureka Springs which is only 15 minutes away, has some 50 restaurants that Jack can recommend. The suites kitchenette is designed to warm up the goodies you bring back, not for full blown cooking in the suite. However there is a charcoal grill on the deck where you can grille a steak or maybe some burgers.

The queen bedroom has a glass table with two chairs, an arm chair and of course the flat screen TV and "white noise" fan. Everything about this suite is class, from the antique brass lamp to the marble night table. I got the feeling of elegance when I went through for the first time and I think you will too. Special little things like literature on Eureka Springs and Beaver Lake, the most comfortable bed I've slept in, and the quiet, private, relaxing setting make this property #1.

This property is popular for honeymoons, anniversaries, families, and for a girls weekend get-a-way. If relaxing, quiet comfort is what you are looking for, this is the place.

Reservations should be made well in advance to guarantee the dates you desire.

FOR A SPECIAL TREAT. Jack does a private tour that lasts about an hour and a half, during which you will hear and see things that you otherwise would never see or hear. It's really special because you get to go down inside one of the original healing springs, go to the top of the Crescent (the most haunted hotel in America), and go across the only wooden suspension bridge in the State of Arkansas. The $50 fee covers everyone in the suite.

Over the last three years it has become evident that less than 50% of my guests are willing to abide by the Hot tub house rules, resulting in soiled water, a nasty ring around the hot tub, and a clogged filter. Therefore the spa must be emptied, cleaned, Refilled, new chemicals added, and water temperature brought back up. Therefore a $50 fully refundable damage deposit must be collected from every party electing to use the hot tub. It's as simple as showering before getting in the hot tub.

Eureka Springs is a magical hidden jewel located in the Ozark mountains, the oldest mountain range in America. It is not unusual to see a bald eagle, or a wild turkey, a red fox, or deer prancing around everywhere. Your host (Jack) can direct you to some great hiking.

Our latest Eureka Springs feature is the new 'zip line' just opened March first. Turpentine Creek Animal Park features lions, tigers, and bears.....'Oh My!' There is Pivot Rock, Lake Lucerne (where Al Capone had a hideout), the steam engine train with dinner car, the Great Passion Play, Lake Leatherwood, and countless others. The only thing we don't have right now, is you. But you can change that. Your host, Jack Cross, has been in the area for more than 40 years, and is a wealth of helpful information. His guest suite is just around the corner from Starkey Marina where you can rent boats, buy pizza and beer, or BBQ at the free pavilion. Jack knows where to fish for bass, catfish, crappie, or trout, all right around the corner. If you desire a personal tour of the area and Eureka Springs, with historical information from a great story teller, at a nominal charge, just ask Jack.
