We stayed here with 5 families for a 3 day weekend. We all live in Bentonville but wanted a staycation where we could enjoy the lake and each other's company. It was a perfect weekend. Plenty of space for 10 adults and 11 children. The house was fully stocked with toys for the lake and inside. No need to bring any extras, it was all provided. We will definitely return again!
Set on a lake just inside the state line of Arkansas in Bella Vista, this lodge has lots of amenities, but more importantly, it's a beautiful place to bring together a group of folks that just want to relax and hang out together. Family, friends, coworkers - whatever! There is LOTS of things to do nearby, from shopping to hiking to golfing to about anything you'd want. We just stay at the lodge...it's SO relaxing to get away from it all and just hang out in and next to the lake. We usually start up the firepit at night, and share some great times. Can't recommend it enough!!
An impeccable home in a picturesque setting that will delight the most critical traveler, vacation connoisseur or professional or conference group. Well maintained and the owners are amazing. The beds which so many travelers complain about are all great quality as are the linens...the kitchen is gourmet and if you have a chance, ask to have Chef Al (see plan your stay page) cook a meal for you...we had the best ribs that just fell off the bone with all the trimmings for $12.50 a head and it was better than any restaurant we went to all week. I have travelled all over the World and I can tell you this property is FIRST CLASS and will not disappoint the most discriminating traveler.

What a fantastic stay all 18 women had at your Cedar Lodge. We loved gathering around the large table and watching movies in our PJ’s. We had so much fun exploring the many rooms and their unique furnishings. We will all remember our stay at this beautiful Lodge. Thanks so much! ~ Jerelyn, Bella Vista, AR
But for our impending check-out time, I would write on about how absolutely fantastic our stay has been. We walked around the entire home taking photos for decorating ideas-even the men! The only question on all of our minds is when will we be back??
~MP & TP Singapore Asia
It feels like a dream to be surrounded by so many beautiful antiques and an incredible dock, not to mention the view. If I could return every year, I would do so without batting an eye. I honestly have not left the grounds in the last 72 hours, and feel like I could stay here for another 72 without getting bored.

...We could not have asked for a more magical place to gather...
~The M Family - Atlanta, Georgia
What a jaw-dropping incredible weekend this has been! From the moment we passed under the lighted arch, this has been an over-the top weekend. It is so apparent that you have created with careful intent and passion, a place to gather with friends and family. I love all of the many places we found to gather or to find solace. You have forged a retreat to soothe the soul and build lasting, loving bonds.

That's only a few. We thank you.

This place can be summed up in four words... The Best Place Ever! We can't wait to come back and make more memories.
~DP, LP, & TP - Galveston Island, Texas
We have had the best weekend ever! Great friends, wonderful food and the most fabulous home we have ever stayed in. It's unbelievable! With every turn, there is a big and more wonderful surprise, all done with such love and care. You've got a "one in-a-million home" and we love the time we spent here. Simply amazing.
~SS & CS
Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime, to enjoy and feel the pleasure of the luxurious and the unique house. We all loved it, loved it in a way that we all can have memories for a lifetime and we all will hope that we can have pleasure to have the beauty of this mansion again some time.
~B and Family
What a pleasure it was to meet you and share your home for our corporate retreat. I think it was the first time the entire staff wanted to "stay longer and work more hours!!!" We are excited about sharing our experiences here with others in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
Wow! I can't stop drooling over this place-every corner of it! Most of all I love that I can see all of my family in one place, a beautiful place. We couldn't have asked for anything more.
We held our family reunion here. I cannot express how much we all enjoyed ourselves. Your house is perfect in every way. Everyone had so much fun and we never ran out of things to do here. Your decor is stunning. You have so many pieces that were the topic of many conversations. The landscaping is breathtaking. Our family took a vote and they would love to come back to your property again in the future! Thanks Again
~DN, CN, AN & Family
What a great vacation!! We had a great time! The house is one of the most beautiful we've ever seen. We loved looking at all the decorations and attention to detail in every area of the house. We greatly appreciated every small thought put into the preparation! It was a perfect vacation and we made memories that we'll never forget.
~T, J, K, & Z
Our family has assembled from 6 states for our annual reunion. Cedar Lodge has been an incredible place for "memory moments" that will be enjoyed for many years. We have been blessed to have shared your beautiful and spacious home. The antiques, collectibles, landscaping, and of course, the "toys"are unexcelled.
~Florida, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and Arkansas
It was so great to have our entire family together in one place for Christmas. We're still amazed at all the incredibly diverse and eclectic antiques and furnishings. You have created a beautiful space that invites togetherness. Our two little ones (ages 4 & 2) loved the playhouse.
~The H Family
What-a treat! Your home is beautiful and so relaxing. Our "Ya Ya" girls love this place and the family like atmosphere it has created for us. We hope to be back so leave the light on for us.
We have a family reunion every year and this was definitely one of our favorite places
in the last 19 years.
~The A Family
Tony tiger great
this is the best place for a large group of people to stay in. very clean and the owners care about their renters
Cedar Lodge is AWESOME!!
This was our 2nd year here and is so relaxing and just exceptional accommodations. Thank you Berry’s for the spectacular home!!
Cedar Lodge is a beautiful property and the house is very accommodating for large groups.
We have five children and this house had plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for us. Our grandchildren enjoyed playing in the playhouse and eating s'mores down on the dock. It is a great family place!
The Cedar Lodge may be the nicest home on Lach Lomona. Sandy did a fantastic job decorating, getting that rustic luxury feel. Everyone said their beds were very comfortable. Balconies, patios, and seating areas galore and all with breathtaking views of the lake. The only complaint is we didn't book it for more nights! Everyone was asking when the next retreat is. All of us would highly recommend groups to stay at the Cedar Lodge for Retreats, business functions or family reunions it would be awesome.
Another Great Vacation
This was our 3rd year in a row to enjoy Cedar Lodge and every year is better than the last! The family memories made here are priceless. Once again, Sandra and Dave made our stay so enjoyable. After our stay last year, we mentioned a few items to Sandra on ways to improve this beautiful house and every one of them was addressed! If you are considering a stay at Cedar Lodge, DO IT! You won't be disappointed! We will be back!
Perfect in every way
This is our 2nd time at Cedar Lodge. Our family absolutely loves it!
Best memories ever
Our family of 15 enjoyed every moment of our stay at Cedar Lodge - it is an awesome place!
This resort has something for all ages! Dave & Sandy are great people to work with and took care of every thing we needed. I would highly recommend staying at Cedar Lodge for a family retreat, business retreat, or just with a group of friends. It's a wonderful place, owned by wonderful people!
Our entire family had a terrific time - from the oldest (89) to the youngest (11 months). A perfect place to spend time! It has something for everyone! We loved our visit there!
We had a family reunion in June at Cedar Lodge and had a fabulous time. The home is beautiful and spacious and the owners are very generous with all the amenities they provide. Outside there are all kinds of toys such as a lily pad, a slide with running water, paddle boards, canoes, life jackets, etc. We had such a good time that we never even bothered to open up the hot tub. Shampoo, body wash and towels are all provided too. Of course, the weather was perfect so that added to our enjoyment. There are a lot of steps, however, both inside and out. And we were a little disappointed that all of the outside lights were not working as well as the microwave in the kitchen. We would definitely recommend booking this lodge for your stay. We wish we had had one more day just to enjoy everything the home has to offer.
Truly there are no words to describe this place. The decorating is just phenomenal! Even when you think you have seen it all, there is still something you've missed. There is so much to do there without bringing anything at all. It was still cool when we went but we still tried out the wake boards and the canoe. We had right around 20 people. It was roomy and then some. The boys caught several nice fish which they released. I only hope we can go back sometime. It was a great weekend The only thing that was little tough is that we had some in our group that struggled with going up and down the hill to the lake...but was wonderful just the same.
An impeccable home in a picturesque setting that will delight the most critical traveler, vacation connoisseur or professional or conference group. Well maintained and the owners are amazing. The beds which so many travelers complain about are all great quality as are the linens...the kitchen is gourmet and if you have a chance, ask to have Chef Al cook a meal for you...we had the best ribs that just fell off the bone with all the trimmings for $12.50 a head and it was better than any restaurant we went to all week. I have travelled all over the World and I can tell you this property is FIRST CLASS and will not disappoint the most discriminating traveler........
We have stayed at this property 2 different times with our family. The property is beautiful! I would give this a 6 rating if I could. The home is roomy! It has a wonder play house that our grandkids loved and they still talked about it. They said they missed this place because we have to go somewhere further south of us recently instead of back to Bella Vista. The kitchen was beyond awesome. The pantry is fully stocked. They have things that you don't even think about. The owners of this home know true hospitality. The game room/movie room is great! We pretty much hang out in the game room and play room. We love it!!!!
It was breathtaking. We thought it was perfect and very relaxing. We are planning to make this a yearly trip. Sandra was very nice and anytime willing
To work with. Great trip no complaints
It was the best setting for me and the team. Beds to entertainment to kitchen to serenity was spectacular. We will be back every year. Thank you Sandra Berry. You made it possible and flexible for our programming.
The property offers peaceful setting, beautiful and comfortable home. Has everything you need for a family getaway. Truly a treat.
We knew the house was beautiful by the pictures on this site. But the pictures did not do the Cedar Lodge justice. Breathtakingly beautiful! And the layout of the home and the property allowed us to spend quality time with each other and find a quiet refuge when needed!
We booked Cedar Lodge as a base during our sons' wedding weekend. We were 15 minutes from the chapel and 15 minutes from the reception venue. The Lodge had rooms to sleep both family and groomsmen. The ability to cook and sit around the fires and laugh and tell stories made the weekend. The bonus Christmas decorating Sandra had done made us smile even more. The hosts even went out of their way to make personal golf clubs available because we had forgotten ours. Well done, Cedar Ridge Arkansas!
The home is beautiful. The attention to detail is remarkable. And the location is breathtaking. But equally important is that the owners were warm and gracious and went over and above to make sure our stay was perfect. We rented the home for a business retreat for women in my organization and every one loved the house and didn't want to leave. Beds were all very comfortable. Bathrooms were all very nice. The kitchen and how it was stocked was amazing. What you see in the pictures and videos on their site doesn't do the home justice...everything looks even better than the pictures. We have sometimes had bad experiences where the home didn't live up to the pictures. This was the opposite. I was able to show training from my computer onto their large screen, as well as a fun movie. So many great indoor and outdoor seating areas. And their attention to detail outside was as much as inside. All the outdoor areas were clean, firewood was available, and fresh flowers in every room and bathrooms. Sandra and Dave have thought about everything that guests might need or want and have provided it. I definitely give it a 5 star and would recommend this as a perfect vacation or business rental.
Bella Vista, AR
We could not have stayed at a better place for everyone in our crowd. Lots to do and a beautiful house.
This lodge is a great place to stay for large golf groups it is within 15 minutes of any golf course.
Our group of ten women was overwhelmed by the beauty, the cleanliness, the views, the spaciousness of Cedar Lodge. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We are already planning our next trip back.
We had an amazing stay . The house and grounds were beautiful and the Berry's could not have been more helpful. We are definitely coming back. Didn't want to leave!
We rented Cedar Lodge for a week in July 2016 because we had a family reunion nearby. Our three adult daughters, their husbands, and our five grandchildren under the age of eight stayed with us also. We could not have found a more perfect place for us to all get together and enjoy each other for a week. We waterskied on the lake every day and our oldest grandsons were able to learn how to water ski. The home is on the lake and has a huge dock, boathouse and every imaginable water sport amenity including water skis, canoes, kayaks and paddle boards to name a few. They have a huge selection of life jackets, blow up water toys and our grandsons used them all and even fished off of the paddle boards.
The interior of the home is spectacular and shows the attention to detail and the great taste of the owners, Sandra and Dave. When we arrived, the two dining tables were beautifully set with china, chargers and cloth napkins and there was a gift basket of smores. Everywhere you look, there is something unique and lovely and it is obvious that they have been collecting these treasures for years. There are too many museum quality pieces to count and the entire home is a feast for the eye. Everything is provided for an elegant stay including all necessary kitchen supplies and staples. There are lots of TVs, a BBQ and a smoker which made the best ribs we have ever tasted, secluded balconies and outdoor spaces where all of us could gather. Our little boys got to see their first fireflies which were the only bugs that we encountered. NO MOSQUITOS. The weather was a bit humid but not uncomfortable as we were in the lake so much of the day. This part of Arkansas is beautiful and near Bentonville, the home of WalMart. The WalMart inspired museum, Crystal Bridges is a world class museum both architecturally and because of its collections and a must see in the area.
We want to thank Sandra and Dave for sharing their beautiful home with us and for being so helpful with all of our questions. We loved every minute of our stay.
There aren't enough words to express how beautiful the home and property are! There isn't a detail left unthought of. Everything you could possibly need is provided! Sandra was very helpful is planning the trip with very quick, complete responses! The pictures and details make it look great so we were worried our expectations may be too high. Not the case at all. We were blow away!
We have been taking family vacations for the last 6 years and by far Cedar Lodge is the most spectacular home we have stayed at. The pictures of the home are great, but seeing it first hand is more impressive. We had 21 family members stay at the home comfortably and with all the outdoor activities they kept very busy. The lake was so clear it made everyone comfortable to be in the water and enjoy themselves. The home was in excellent condition and was decorated with so many interesting items, which brought about great conversation among the family members. The indoor activities kept our family having fun throughout the evening.
The few issues that we needed help with, Sandra and David were right there to address them. They were very easy to work with, which is very important in renting a vacation home. Sandra indicated they try to make the stays very memorable and our family would all agree that Sandra and Dave accomplished this, in a big way. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.
We have scheduled our stay for next year, which we are all looking forward to.
Jim & Judy B
Thank you Sandy and Dave for providing a perfect place for our large family of 18 to vacation together. Your personal attention to detail made us feel right at home. Cedar Lodge is stunning, there are many special sweet spots to put your feet up and just enjoy the views. For an active young family like ours there are abundant amenities to keep everyone busy and happy all day long and ready for a good night sleep in comfy beds.
Myself and 15 golf buddies stayed 3 nights. Everyone was just in awe of the lodge. Not a single complaint. The place was furnished great. Maintained great. Hot tub was nice temperature. The guys had a great time renting the pontoon boat. We differently will be back.
Awesome property! Very comfortable, homey, yet luxurious! We loved our weekend here, and recommend it to everyone!
Regina Neely R.
We love the home and all the room. There is plenty of golf courses and shopping and
play toys at the lodge. Thank you for sharing.
The Lake front retreat and resort is a great place to stay. For the past 3 years a group of my golfing buddies have been staying at this resort. We enjoy the lake, and lodge. Its a place where we can all be together and not spread out through the hills. The owners are very good at seeing that we are well taken care of. It's the greatest!!!!
Wow! What an amazing place for a family get together! Everything about the house was better than expected. Sandra and Dave were there to answer all our questions and allowing us to use their pontoon boat helped make our time at Cedar Lodge unforgettable. There was something for everyone to enjoy. Some of us also played golf at 2 of the local courses. We are already planning on coming back next year!
Our family Vacation at Cedar Lodge was Amazing! The owners are so friendly and helpful. All ages can have a wonderful time without leaving the property. Would definitely recommend anyone who is looking for a fun place to stay. We can not wait to go back!
We had a wonderful stay! The place is beautiful inside and out. Great place to relax or participate in many activities. The Berrys were wonderful to us! We can't wait to come back!
Sandra and Dave were wonderful as usual. This was our third year staying at Cedar Lodge and it is truly like having your own private mountain lodge on the lake.
Leawood, KS (Kansas City area)
We came for the views , but stayed for the cozy comfort. Pictures don't do full justice to this lovely retreat. Loved the spacious , well designed indoors and outdoors with plenty of things to do for both adults and kids. We will definitely come back.
Our stay was fabulous! Thank you. Rooms were excellent! Clean, plenty of options to cook with, and plenty of options to relax with!
Loved it! Will be back.
We had a group of family and friends stay here in Jan 2014. It is a wonderful place for families or groups. Every detail has been thought of. It is a first class experience! Beautiful setting with wonderful views of the lake. Owners are great to work with.
