Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Fall/winter booking special

Sept 8-April 30 book 5-7 nights for $350 plus taxes and fees. That is less than the regular price for a 5 night booking. If you have your dates picked out go ahead and enter the request and I will be able to go in and alter the price before you pay.

New updates from Jan/Feb 2017 include new tubs and tile surrounds in bathrooms, one bathroom is a tub sized walk in shower. They are also freshly painted and beadboard ceilings. Bedrooms have new paint and all the popcorn ceilings are gone. All electrical outlets and switches have been updated.

I've done a kitchen remodel Jan 2016. New countertops, backsplash, ceiling, lighting, over the stove microwave are all new, beadboard ceilings, and new recessed lighting.

Two bedrooms (split floor plan) with over 400 sq ft each and 2 queen beds each, (each bedroom with bathroom) living room/dining room, fully supplied kitchen, and a 3rd full bathroom. Furnishings are all new. Gas fireplace in the living room added November 2015. Bathrooms have new vanities and wainscot.

Check in is 4pm, but I will let you know if earlier is possible dependent on whether someone left the same morning you check in. Check out is 10 am, later if I know it won't be cleaned that day and getting out is no hurry.

BEFORE BOOKING.

PLEASE CHECK RATES UNDER THE RATE TAB. VRBO SHOWS A RATE ON FRONT PAGE THAT IS THE LOWEST AVERAGE OFFERED YEAR ROUND, BUT DOESN'T REFLECT WHAT 99% OF WHAT PEOPLE BOOK. IT ISN'T A BAIT AND SWITCH ON BEHALF OF OWNERS.

Get a great rate if you can stay during the week when you can enjoy less crowds.

I will consider one night stays on a case by case basis, but it wouldn't be a great value to do so since it is the cost of the night plus $40 cleaning fee, plus 15% tax, plus the vrbo fee which is probably another $10-$12 dollars. So depending on whether the night is during the week or on the weekend, the cost would be approximately $130-$160.

This home is in the Villas area of Fairfield Bay, just 3 blocks from the conference center, near many of the area amenities, and a short 5 minute drive to the marina. The Villas are in a very quiet neighborhood, stand alone houses, so no noise from connecting neighbors like the condos in the area. Lots of trees, and most things are walkable.

Come to this beautiful area and enjoy not just one of the top 10 cleanest lakes in the country, but the many amenities. There is bowling, fitness center, swimming pools, golf courses, putt putt, volleyball, basketball, tennis courts, walking trails, Frisbee golf, and restaurants all surrounded by mature trees, mountains, and the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake. The marina is a 5-10 drive from the house. All types of boats are available for rent there from jet skis to pontoons.

There are a number of trails in Fairfield Bay that offer hikes from short and leisurely to longer and more challenging. Indian Rock Cave Trail 3/4 miles, Indian Falls Trail, 8/10 mile of rock formations and waterfalls. Woodland Mead trail to Ed leamon Park trail to Ed Leamon Garden trail are about 1/4 legs. Lakewood trail is 5 miles, and Mt Ranch trail is a 5 mile bike or hike trail.

There are a handful of restaurants on the property and a grocery store and Dollar General just outside the main entrance to the Bay.

Fairfield Bay also offers more than 50 community organizations, ranging from golf and boating groups, artist’s league, civic organizations, hiking clubs, and Master Gardeners! In Fairfield Bay, everyone can get involved!

The Bay is also conveniently located, with Conway (60 minutes) and LIttle Rock (90 minutes) in our back yard, the attributes of the big cities are handy, while enjoying the high quality lifestyle the Bay is known for.

Fairfield Bay is also host to several great seasonal festivals! These family friendly celebrations are sure to please everyone no matter the time of year! So come and enjoy these community events throughout the year such as: Bloomin’ in the Bay, Surf the Bay, 4th of July parade & fireworks, and StoryFest at the Bay just to name a few. Be sure to visit for more information on all of our upcoming events!

Snow birds, if you aren't going to Florida or Texas, consider this for a winter rental. Contact me for winter long term rates.

Please note the cancellation policy before you book any property on VRBO so you will know whether you can get a refund should you have to cancel. Also the fees VRBO charges for processing are never refunded. Minimum age 21.

About Cathy Crosslin

This is my personal retreat home, and where I will likely live permanently in a few years. I am currently adding updates to make this more of what I will want long term, and not just a rental property. Some updates done, more to come over the next year.

Cathy Crosslin purchased this villa in 2015

Why Cathy Crosslin chose Fairfield Bay

Great deals can be had in Fairfield Bay. I chose this house because of it's central location. Right around the corner from the conference center, walking distance to the gym, to a daily lunch at the senior center open to anyone, walking distance to a trail, putt putt and courts, and a longer walk to the pool.

We loved our time at this Condo. It was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this condo for 4 nights. We cooked every meal there and we absolutely loved our stay. Cathy is wonderful to work with, she responded right away to any question I had and was super helpful. The condo was VERY CLEAN and VERY ORGANIZED. These two things are so important to me in order to be able to relax and enjoy down time. She had everything we needed in the condo but it was not cluttered with a lot of other stuff. The bedrooms were really big and beds and pillows were very comfortable. The bathrooms were updated and very nice and it was SO AWESOME to have 3 full bathrooms. Her place comes with a pool card that allows you to go to any of the 3 pools, and gets you discounts at many other places in town including the Marina. I will absolutely stay here again if I am ever in the area and I will tell my friends about it as well. The pictures don't actually show how cute it is. I liked it way more in person than in the pictures.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much!! And I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the house and your stay. It is always great to have someone acknowledge the efforts I've made to try to make the house look good and feel comfortable. Thanks, as well, for leaving everything in great shape and helping me get it ready for the next guests. That is priceless to an owner. I hope to have you back again! Blessings.

Very comfortable for the boys

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 golfers who like to play golf at the courses in northcentral Arkansas. We do not cook but eat every meal out. Other than for our pot of Cajun coffee in the morning, the kitchen was rarely used. The condo was very comfortable and suited our needs very well. The beds were comfortable, the a/c worked quite well although sometimes a bit noisy. We were able to play golf during the day, have a few drinks and a cigar (on the screened porch) in the evening and get a good nights rest to be ready for the next round of golf. We will probably rent this unit again in the future. The owner was very nice and accommodating about check-in and check-out times. Thank you very much for the opportunity afforded us on this stay!

Great location and stay

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 4 grandkids. There was plenty of space for us all. The in the condo washer- dryer worked out wonderfully for us. The price of the unit was a big plus for us too, as grandpa and grandma foot the bill.

Also had to attempt to please all the grandkids all the time, as they range in age from 6 -19 years old.(good luck with that). We did bowling, goofy golf, kayaking and the cool pool...But the most fun for everyone was renting (not exactly in our budget) a platoon boat for an afternoon out on the lake, since all enjoyed it (jumping in and getting refreshed).

We do wish to THANK Cathy for working with us. She says she is continuing to upgrade the unit a little at a time. For us it was delightful as it was.

Hope to do it again next year, if not before.... The Millers

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. I think Fairfield Bay is a bit of an unknown area for many people, but there is a lot of things for families to do, and the lake being top of the list. I learned from the guests just before you that the guest card gives a discount at the marina. I don't know if you used it for that, but good information to know for the next visit. Next big project on the house is to make the back deck more usable family space. I've tried to make the inside of the house comfortable, but a resort area is a lot about being outside, so the back deck should be as welcoming as the screened in front porch. Hope to have you back soon! Blessings Cathy

Very amazing

  • 5 of 5

This lake house was very clean and had a lot more room than I thought! We had 10 people and it fit all of us very comfortably. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away for a few days! Neighbors were nice and talkative and helped us with things! 10/10
