Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

This cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all! Just around the corner from beautiful Greers Ferry Lake, and one of Arkansas finest golf courses, Tannenbaum Golf Course, this really is a small slice of Paradise. Complete with a huge yard for activities, firepit, open area to park your boat, a boat ramp right around the corner and trails that go for miles, you would be hard pressed to find a better place to take your spouse, family, or life long friends to spend some quality time reconnecting with nature. You will find no wi-fi here, only books, peace and quiet, and all the outdoor activities you can think of! Fly fish in the morning at the Little Red River, tube in the afternoon on Greers Ferry Lake, and get in a round of golf before dinner at Tannenbaum Golf, or just sit in the hammock all day! We love our little lake cottage, and we know you will too!

About Preston Palmer

My wife Trish and I live in Conway and get up to the cabin as much as we can! Trish grew up just down the street from the cabin, and her parents actually still live out there! We have a special place in our heart for that area, and we know that you will love it as much as we do!

Preston Palmer purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Preston Palmer chose Drasco

This property is centralized to the whole lake area, Little Red River, and 30 minutes from the White River, and Mountain View. Tannenbaum Golf Course is right through the woods, and Fairfield Bay is just up the highway. There is plenty of room in my yard for you to park your boat or camper, and lake access about 2 minutes up the street! It really is in the perfect spot!

What makes this cottage unique

You can see the stars so well at night from our big back yard!! It is so peaceful and serene out there!! That is probably my favorite part of our place.

Perfect little cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly what we were looking for: a private getaway, away from the chaos of everyday life. The cabin was very clean, well-stocked, and comfortable. It is located on a very large lot and offers plenty to do outside. My kids loved the hammock and yard games. I was impressed with the reading selection (Steinbeck and Thoreau, to name a couple of the authors). The decor was equally impressive, with several pieces that looked to be original works. My wife loved the coziness of the place and was thoroughly impressed with how well-kept it was. The owners were an absolute pleasure and were very accommodating. This place made our mini-vacation perfect. We will definitely return!

Owner's Response: Thanks guys! So glad you enjoyed your stay at our place! And, yes, my wife did all the oil paintings, and the landscape painting were done by Foster Hanford, a local artist. Thanks again for the great review, and we can't wait to host you again!

Nice and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We overall really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was extremely nice and accommodating. Just a couple of minor complaints: There are only two window units in the house. One is in the living room and the other is in the extra bedroom. The master bedroom doesn't have one and would get very warm. If we tried to sleep with the door closed, we would have to get up in the middle of the night and open the door to let some of the cooler air in. Also, not much closet space. Bring your own hangers if you do wish to try to hang your clothes. Overall nice and would stay here again. Very close to the boat launch.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We actually are getting a quote on central heating/air next week, so hopefully when you come back that issue will be taken care of! We are sorry it got warm on y'all in there. I will square that away! Currently we keep all of our personal stuff locked up in the closet, but that does cut down on our guest's storage. This fall, I am building a owner's locker in the laundry room so we can let guests use the closets. That should help a ton. We never thought we would have so much interest in our place, so we are playing catch-up in all these areas so that we can provide the best atmosphere possible! Thanks a ton for your great review, and we hope to see you again soon!

Quiet escape!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin. Very quiet and was able disconnect from everything. It was exactly what I needed. The cabin was very cozy and clean. The only suggestion I have is to make sure your cleaner gets the fridge and trash can. We will definitely return for another weekend.

Wonderful, relaxing get away!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a wonderful time staying at this quaint, cute getaway. The cabin was just the right size for us. The decor is adorable and we had everything we needed during our stay. There are 2 bedrooms and our 3 teens shared a bedroom and it worked out great with the full bunk bed with twin bed on top. We were looking for a place to get away from "technology. There are 2 tvs in the cabin, but they are not connected to any kind of satellite service, so if you are ok with no TV, it's great! There is a dvd player in the bedroom with one tv, but no dvd player in the den - just the tv only. If you want to watch movies as a family in the den, you will have to use the dvd player in the bedroom. There are outdoor games to play including corn hole and a fire pit on the property. We had a great night making s'mores by the fire and the stars were incredible! The owner was very accommodating and worked with us when we ran into a last minute scheduling snag with the previous renters who had rented the cabin on the last day that we were supposed to arrive. The decor in this cabin is adorable - my oldest daughter (art/design major in college) especially fell in love with it. She jokingly asked if we could call the owner to ask if she could buy the pillows and curtains in the den from him!! :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - very relaxing and a perfect place to get away from the hectic pace of busy life! We would definitely rent again if we decide to vacation again in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks guys! Glad y'all enjoyed it and thanks for your flexibility! My wife actually made the pillows and curtains, and painted some of the oil paintings so she is very flattered by your compliments!! We are purchasing a new blue ray player for the living room. One of our prior guests accidentally packed the old one up and took it home with them....oopsss!!! Thanks again and we can't wait to have you back!

Good easter weekend

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for easter weekend. Property has a huge yard which gave us plenty of room to have family come down to grill and allow the kids to play. Grill, charcoal and dishes are provided which is nice. Dishes weren't very clean though, so we had to re-wash what we needed to use. When we arrived only master bed was made, bunk bed was a huge pain to make. Great small cabin in a nice location close to the lake.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Very sorry about the beds not being made...it is def a pain to make the top bunk. We have already made the necessary adjustments to make sure that doesn't happen again. Thanks again for staying with us!
