Thank you so much for letting us enjoy our 4th of July holiday at your beautiful cabin! The accommodations were perfect for our families - a perfect amount of space, beautiful views & plenty to keep us entertained! We especially loved Blanchard Springs! Your attention to detail was greatly appreciated, from the patriotic cookies you left for us, to the mints left on our pillows! And I know I mentioned the view, but WOW! It is incredible at ALL times of the day. We hope to return again in the future! Thanks again!

Perfect! The lodge outstanding! The view outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

The lodge is beautiful, well stocked, clean and great location to town with gorgeous views of the mountains and White River.

It's comfortable and easy to feel right at home with beautiful surroundings.

The large decks allow you to sit and enjoy the view, dine outside or enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

Should we travel back this way, we would definitely want to stay at the Overlook Lodge!

Quintessential Ozark Experience

  • 5 of 5

Overlook Lodge was the perfect place for our group of international students to have their first overnight experience in the Ozark Mountains. Everything in the house was wonderfully prepared to make our stay very easy. The students loved the live edge trim and other custom design touches around the house. Due to the incredible view, I even saw a couple people forsake the bedrooms and pull up their sleeping bags on the deck to fall asleep after watching the gorgeous sunset. We could not have asked for a better experience.

The perfect getaway with an incredible view!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Louisiana with a group of college science students to explore the geology and biology of the Ozarks during spring break. Usually we stay at State Parks but this year we decided to try a vacation rental property. This place was the perfect choice for us. Secluded and quiet but within minutes from everything is the perfect combination. The amenities provided were perfect and the cleanliness is something you only get from a homeowner. There really is no other place to stay if you plan to explore Blanchard Springs, Sylamore Creek, and the White River. We will DEFINITELY be coming back!

What A View

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful peaceful place to vacation. The home looked even better than the pictures. The view is stunning and the property is private and quiet with a gorgeous view of the White River. Blanchard Caverns, Mirror Lake, Mountain View, and White River activities are all just a few miles away.
