About Steve Beckerdite
Steve and Debbie both are pharmacists. Steve was brought up in Ft. Smith, AR and Debbie is from Monroe, LA. Both now live in Fayetteville, AR which is about 45 minutes from the lake house. Because we live so close we are very attentive to the house. We have been renting our house for 16 years and we know you won't return if you are not treated well. We have many repeat guests each year. We love outdoor activities and family life. Our grandson who is 8 really enjoys the lake house. What a "nature" education for him!
Steve Beckerdite purchased this House in 2001
Why Steve Beckerdite chose Garfield
After spending many vacations on Beaver Lake we decided to buy this house in 2001 as a weekend get-away and as a vacation rental unit. We looked at many houses in Lost Bridge Village subdivision before we bought. What sold us on this house was the quality. We did not see houses with cedar wood and real Ozark stone as this one does. The construction is very well done by one of the best contractors in our area and you can feel it throughout the house. The walk to the water from the house is very gentle. Even the elderly can usually handle it. We have a fish cleaning table at the water's edge. There is a charcoal grill and we have decided that the real charcoal rather than propane makes the food taste much better. There is always something to entertain you on Beaver. Walking, biking, swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, sailing, relaxing, relaxing, relaxing, etc.
What makes this House unique
Because our house has Ozark stone fireplaces, you can use it year round. The house has modern amenities; yet, it has a wonderful 'cabin' feel to it. The cedar accents throughout add a warm, cozy feeling to the rooms. There is plenty of glass to take advantage of the views from all sides. Even the living room has a sky light. Beautiful mountain lake with crystal clear waters for whatever your boating/fishing/swimming/sailing activities. This north end of Beaver Lake is the clearest part. The scuba diving club meets on this end because of that. Beaver is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful lakes we've ever seen. The water stays so deep blue green and clear. Whitney Mt makes the cliff views just awesome for picture taking. Make sure you tour Whitney Mt Chapel and the grounds at the top where the club house is. If you are looking for a site for a wedding you can't go wrong here year round! Our house has been used many times for a base house of stay for weddings and reunions. Be on the lookout for wildlife because there are lots. The openness of this house makes it very relaxing. We love eating on the deck because of the lake view. As soon as we hit the deck, we feel the stress just melt away! Just love it!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
Overall good stay. One bathroom toilet was dirty. The master bedroom was downstairs in the basement which had a mildew/moldy smell that bothered my asthma. We had to kill a mouse the first morning we were there. We were lucky to have a few hunters in our party. We had an issue with the washer and dryer. The lake was beautiful and we were able to unload our boat close to the house and dock the boat by tying it to a tree by the shore by the house.
Overall a great place!
The place was clean. And a great place for us. The driveway is sketchy (steep going down) but overall great and would stay again.
Incredible place to stay
Highly recommend staying here!
Love it! Will return!
We enjoyed this property very much! Will return! Driveway was a bit tricky but overall our experience was great! Thank you.
Fun time away!
With everything canceled for spring break, we decided to get away to the lake for a couple of days. The property was lovely, and we very much enjoyed the proximity to the lake. A couple of features weren't working, but I feel like this is to be expected with a property that has people in and out of it. Great communication from the property owners, and we would definitely look at renting again either here or their other locations.
