About the property

4 Br 3 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 16 A View From Every Room In The House.

Welcome to Lago Vista. We offer our home as a retreat for old friends and new friends to enjoy. We think you will find it to be a relaxing escape, no matter what the season. Enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful panoramic view of Greer’s Ferry lake and Sugarloaf Mountain and miles and miles beyond. Our family has enjoyed many days on this lake, as well as the great golf courses, tennis courts and many other recreational opportunities here. But the best thing about Lago Vista is that, for a few days, it can belong to you.

The home:

The home’s décor is casually elegant. There are 4 bedrooms (2 of which are masters) with 3 full baths and one ½ bath. Nine separate beds can easily accommodate 3 families and can sleep as many as 16 people including the large sofas. MBR 1 - king bed, MBR 2 - queen and full/twin bunk, BR 3 - queen and full/twin bunk, BR 4-2 queens. There is a modern fully equipped kitchen as well as a propane grill on the deck. 2 living areas with large flat screen TVs and blue ray dvd players (netflix capable). The downstairs recreation room and den has a pool table that can be converted for ping pong. Our 2 huge decks featuring plenty of seating including 2 porch swings, offer views as far as your eyes can see. After a day at the lake or golf course – there is plenty to do at the house – play ping pong, pool, watch TV or movies with plenty of room to stretch out enjoy the view and make great memories.

Why Fred Huggins chose Fairfield Bay

The view is unbelievable and it is different every day. Every outdoor activity you can think of is nearby and Fairfield Bay's amenities are top notch.

What makes this house unique

Drinking coffee on the deck, in the early morning, I frequently see deer in our back yard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was the perfect place. for our family's Christmas together.

Many memories were made by both the little ones and the adults.

We made ginger bread houses, decorated cookies, played games and

ate tons of of food and of course the men played a lot of pool.

Your kitchen was well equipped which made it easy to prepare our meals

The view is the most beautiful on the lake!!! The one sunrise we saw was


We hope to gather there again at some future time.

Wonderful Lake Get-Away Home

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at Lago Vista. From the day of booking all the way through the stay, the owner Fred was so very helpful in working with our group's needs and giving us all the tips and info we needed. The Fairfield Bay community itself is fantastic- we didn't have time to enjoy all of the amenities but hope to come back soon and do the parts we missed. There is putt putt, a beautiful swimming pool, basketball, volleyball, shuffle board, hiking, and even a bowling alley! The house itself was great- plenty of comfortable beds for all to sleep with extra towels and wash cloths. The kitchen was excellently stocked. We cooked every night. Two separate living spaces plus pool and ping pong table were also fun. My favorite part had to be the awesome back deck with million dollar views of sugar loaf mountain. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck drinking coffee, catching up, and spending time in God's Word. We rented a pontoon boat from Fairfield Bay Marina which I would highly recommend doing. It is a great way to see the lake. We also rented jet skiis which were a blast. Swimming and cliff jumping was a highlight. If you go, be sure to do the hike up Sugar Loaf Mountain. The views are incredible and well worth the (moderately strenuous) hike!

We hope to come back to Lago Vista soon!

Beautiful home and view!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious and beautiful home. The deck has a gorgeous view of Sugar Loaf Mountain and lots of room for large families to gather. The kitchen is well stocked. The pool at Fairfield Bay is well maintained and a great place to cool off on hot days. We enjoyed playing disc golf and hiking Sugar Loaf Mtn. The owner is very helpful in providing any information you need to make your stay wonderful. Highly recommend this home!

Amazing and wonderful place to stay and play!

  • 5 of 5

Our family gets together each summer for a little "family retreat" after being scattered from Arkansas to Cairo Egypt for almost a year. Lago Vista in Fairfield bay was perfect for us. From the pool and ping pong "tournaments" . . to morning coffee on the deck (the view is breath-taking) . . to a day on the water, or afternoon on the golf course. . everything was just right! Some of our family members were already starting to talk about next summer before we even checked out. Thanks to owner Fred Huggins for being available and responsive to any questions and even just checking in with us to see if we needed anything prior to our stay. Highly recommend this property!

Beautiful views, comfortable space and great accommodations for a large group!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It has 2 decks for enjoying the view of Sugar Loaf Mountain and sunrise and sunsets, which are beautiful. There are 2 great spaces for gathering and relaxing and it is super convenient to the playground area for kids, the little supermarket for forgotten last minute items and recreational activities like fishing and boating at the marina, hiking Sugar Loaf Mountain, etc. A wonderful and perfect place to make family

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Fairfield Bay is a great place to be at any time of the year. The air gets really clear in the fall, winter and spring, as humidity drops, so our view is even more spectacular during the next few months . We are about to start a major project so we will have all new flooring for your next visit. Come back soon!
