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.

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! ~ Kathy F
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. ~BH - Los Angeles, California
...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. ~CJ & EJ Overland Park, Kansas

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. ~AG
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. ~KD &MD
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. ~CD
We have a family reunion every year and this was definitely one of our favorite places in the last 19 years.
