When we looked at this listing, we were looking for a place overlooking a lake, The listing sounded perfect, even down to the name of blue water bungalow, Unfortunately, it didn't live up to that name. Blue water is the name if the street the house is on and its definitely new construction, not a bungalow, More Pottery Barn if that's what you are looking for, As far as water, out the back door you could see the corner if the lake over a parking lot, It was situated on the corner if a very busy road and definitely not in the forest or secluded, It was also a long drive into Eureka Springs over very winding roads. The place was new and large, nice furniture and kitchen, Unfortunately we had booked 3 nights, but had to leave after the first night due to an emergency at home, The owners would not refund anything, even though this was an emergency, They did offer to give us a deal on future stays but we wont be staying there again.
The bright side-The owners were very accommodating and the place was easy to find and very clean!
The average side. Unfortunate amount of road noise audible from the bedroom and the queen size bed's mattress was pretty worn down.
The shower was rather tricky to figure out and I think we were looking for something a little more isolated, luxury, yet rustic.
Overall, it was a pleasurable experience.
We stayed two nights in this peacefully beautiful bungalow. It was the perfect choice for us. It felt very much like being at home but when you looked outside, you knew you were not in the Texas plains anymore. Being right on the lake was amazing, hiking was perfect and drive time to Eureka Springs was perfect! We definitely plan to stay here again on our next visit.
Thanks so much for the beautiful stay! The jacuzzi was fantastic and very private. The views were incredible, and the inside of the bungalow was even better than the pictures. We grilled out some steaks and eggplant on the deck and had a lovely romantic meal right there! Also some amazing recommendations on where to eat out. Fresh was our favorite. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!!!
The Cottage was absolutely beautiful and romantic as stated. The proximity to town was close and the view was wonderful as well. The Cottage was well designed and comfortable and clean. We had a wonderful time!
