Overview

About the property

A unique experience you're sure to enjoy.

This fantastic property is located minutes away from the best vacation activities that Northwest Arkansas has to offer. Because of its unique layout, the property can be rented as one room or add one or two rooms for a large vacation get-away because all rooms are adjoining.

There is one bedroom with a queen bed, full bath, and kitchenette (refrigerator, microwave, sink, coffee maker, and toaster). It includes a downstairs patio with comfortable lounge chairs. The patio is serene… decorated with hanging baskets and only steps away from a beautiful hardwood forest. . .the perfect place to relax and enjoy your morning cup of coffee or afternoon and evening refreshments.

You can add a second room with twin beds or this can be made up as a King bed on lower level. Upstairs is a separate living room with a sleeper sofa. It is furnished with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. The large deck area includes a covered seating gazebo that provides an excellent place to relax while enjoying the panoramic views of Beaver Lake and the beautiful Ozark Mountains.

Children are welcomed and pets are allowed (with a fee). No smoking inside any unit is allowed.

About Evelyn Cross

I am a the broker owner of New Horizon Realty, Inc. We have an office in Eureka Springs and at the lake area in the same building with the Sunrise-Sunset Vacations Rental. The building was originally built as a 4 unit motel, but has been a gas station, grocery store, restaurant and real estate office at different times throughout the last 50 or 60 years. We have just retored that part of the building to be a rental.

Evelyn Cross purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Evelyn Cross chose Sylvan Shores

This location is ideal for those who want to stay near the Beaver Lake or the White River yet be close enough to enjoy the Victorian, story book town of Eureka Springs. Rent just one room for a comfortable space for 2; rent two rooms to sleep 4 or all three rooms for parties up to 6.

What makes this cabin unique

The property next to our building is owned by a lovely couple who have a knack for gardening, they keep chickens (you'll hear them clucking when they lay an egg and the rooster crowing in the morning). Also they raise rabbits so you might see a stray bunny roaming around the grounds. A little unique character that you don't get in your standard motel room or cabin.

And who knows you might just love the area so much you'll want to buy some real estate. We're handy, just upstairs!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were a group of 4 men and and their 4 sons who wanted to get away from the city for the weekend and play on Beaver Lake, fishing, swimming and boating. We loved the accommodations . . just perfect for our needs!

Eureka Springs, Secluded, great views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 wonderful nights here @ this property. This place has everything! Some books to read, table games to play, 2 TV's with satellite, enough room to sleep 6 people easily, although we only had 2. Free WiFi (just to surf the internet) Evelyn has a code. There are 2 Full baths with a lot of extras provided, such as nice towels, bathwash and shampoos. The kitchenette downstairs was nice as well. There is a coffee pot and a small microwave available for the upstairs guests also. There was some coffee, filters and sugar provided, I am not sure if it was left by previous guests, but it was very enjoyable! It was like staying at your own home! We were 10 minutes from Eureka Springs, so close to all the activities available there, but also secluded, so it was very peaceful and quiet. There is a good sized deck off the top with a stunning view. We were able to enjoy our coffee here in the morning or a beautiful sunset in the evening. You can look up into the heavens and count every star at night. Everything was nice and clean, rooms and bathrooms. I had the opportunity to meet Evelyn as well and she is quite a nice lady. Her business is attached to the property, (real estate) but it is very quiet and pretty much unnoticeable. There is 1 close neighbor who was pleasant and I believe you can purchase fresh eggs from them as they have chickens (fenced). There is a very nice gas grill you can use and you could cook your breakfast or supper here while taking in the awesome landscapes! We cannot say enough good things about this property. We LOVED it! If you are sleeping on the ground floor, it is easily handicapped accessible, no stairs, but I am unsure if a wheelchair would fit thru the door. There is a lower patio as well with a great view and chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery. It is a short gravel drive of maybe 50 ft on a little hill and we rode our motorcycle, so this was a bit tricky, but we were able to get up and down the drive. There is enough room to park at least 2 cars, possibly 3, so a few families could stay. I think they allow pets, and there is a little yard for this. Evelyn has done a great job here and we think anyone would love this.

  • 2 of 5

When we returned to the room from town we found our food that was in covered plastic trays was covered with ants.

Also some BIG roaches were present.

Nope,nada, will not return, in fact we woke up early and left.

Hope we didn’t bring any critters home with us :(

Had a great stay.

Great little gem in the mountains. Had a little trouble finding it as we didn't realize it was attached to the office. Had a great stay and would stay again!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed our place. Yes, the GPS does not quite get you there . . . it stops just about a quarter mile before our address, not sure why. I do send out driving directions to each guest before arrival so if GPS fails you have something else to refer to..

Out of the way

  • 2 of 5

The drive to this property is beautiful, but quite a ways from Eureka Springs and difficult to maneuver in the dark. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable, but there were numerous ladybugs in the room on the ceiling and tables, and I was not comfortable staying the second night so asked for a refund.

Owner's Response: It's pretty common for those lady bugs to show up in our houses in the fall and winter. There's really no way to keep them out them I know of . . .but the good news is they are harmless and they do go away at some point. I do my best to capture them and turn them back outside.

Peaceful, Relaxing, Comfortable, Clean, Great View & Value!

  • 5 of 5

I communicated with Evelyn several times during the booking process, and therefore understood the layout of the cottage, which rooms we were actually renting, etc. Everything was exactly as expected, and then some, plus spotlessly clean and well maintained. The size of the kitchenette is tiny, but is totally stocked with everything you'll need...just not a lot of countertop space. As other reviews mention, the property is located about a 15 min. drive from historic Eureka Springs, which was fine with us. The drive is scenic! On a surprising note, it is only 5 minutes away from Beaver Dam. All in all, we were quite pleased, and probably will be back in the future.

Owner's Response: Glad you were pleased with my rental. I am making plans to enlarge the kitchenette and add some more counterspace into the next room. Hopefully when you come back it will all be done. Thanks for staying with us.
