Family gathering

January 2020

Great place to stay if you enjoy meals and activity at the property. — Janet


Christmas Family Reunion – Wonderful Time!

December 2019

House and grounds accommodated our large family ranging from 83 yrs to 16 months. We have never rented a home so well stocked, from children, babies, dogs, elderly — we couldn’t believe all the supplies they had for their guests! Host went far and beyond to make us feel welcome, and give us the information needed to make our stay at the Lodge a time to cherish.Jerry


Personal Touch

December 2019

We had three families staying here for three nights over the weekend and we couldn’t have been happier with every part of our stay. The personal touch that the owners have put on every aspect of the property is what makes it special.Matthew


Perfect Wedding Location

November 2019

My son and his fiance chose Lodge Between the Lakes for their wedding in mid-October of this year. The setting was absolutely perfect and the owners were such great hosts. What a beautiful testimony the couple who owns this have and such a great witness to a young couple just starting out. It was the perfect wedding at a perfect location. Easy for guests to find and ample room for everyone to be able to visit. Highly recommended!! — Penny


A Special Place

November 2019

Lodge Between the Lakes was the perfect setting for my 80th birthday/family reunion! The bedrooms are strategically placed throughout the house to permit one (if so desired) to retired from all the activities enjoyed by others. The kitchen is fully equipped with every item a cook could request. There’s plenty to do outdoors or one can just enjoy sitting quietly on one of the several porches or decks. If one chooses, there’s also a pool table, ping pong table, and foosball. Steve and Betsy are most accommodating. I can’t think of one thing they haven’t thought of, and that says a lot, since we’ve had fishing cabin rentals and know what it takes to provide outstanding service. Thanks for making the Lodge the special place to celebrate memorable events. Jan & Peter


Excellent For a Large Group

November 2019

My family stayed at the Lodge to celebrate Thanksgiving and it was perfect. We were able to seat a family of 28 in the dining room (with extra tables we brought). Steve and Betsy were most gracious hosts and communicated often regarding our every little concern. The Lodge is easily handicapped accessible which made the location even better for my aging grandparents. The 2 separate game rooms were especially appreciated by my nieces and nephews. We regret that the weather did not allow us to enjoy the grounds at the Lodge but there are several decks, patios, a screened in porch, and an outdoor living space with a hot tub. The Lodge was very clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen had a wide array of cooking utensils and dishes. The owner informed us he is working to add a reception area and RV parking which will add to the already wonderful vacation rental. My family and I are already planning to return next year. Thank you, Steve and Betsy!! — Colleen, Batesville AR


Kitchen Has Everything

November 2019

The Lodge Between The Lakes is a beautiful property. Very nice inside and out. Very clean. The kitchen has everything you need. Lots of activities for families and kids to do. Owners are very attentive and helpful! — Sherri


Above and Beyond

October 2019

We brought our kids and grandkids here for an extended weekend . We couldn’t be happier with the lodging. It was beautiful and the hosts definitely went above and beyond! Would love to go back. — Jennifer


We Plan to Return

October 2019

One of the best places I’ve ever stayed. The best part, however, is the owners. They are the most kind, generous, giving people we’ve ever met. They are a real blessing and a gift. We plan to return!!! Rod & Kathy, Guthrie Center, IA


Amazing Time

October 2019

Your cabin is beautiful! We had an amazing time. I am a worship leader and my wife is a stay-at-home mom. We welcomed the peaceful/relaxing environment. Bless you all! — Aaron & Danielle, Shiloh


Perfect Wedding

September 2019

Our wedding was PERFECT! This venue is a fairytale. Thank you guys SOO much for everything. You are the absolute sweetest people I have ever met. Thank you. — Chris & Brittany, Yellville, AR


Can’t Top This Experience

September 2019

What an amazing place for our family retreat. They have literally EVERYTHING. Ping pong, basketball, pool table, hot tub, cable in every room – you name it. Good luck getting bored at this place. Beautiful views from every side of the house. I have never felt more at home on a vacation in my life! The kitchen will boggle your mind for a vacation rental . We could have cooked a Thanksgiving dinner here easily with nothing other than the food. The hosts, Steve and Betsy, are an absolute pleasure. We will be coming back for any of our family’s future rental needs in the Mountain Home area. No one can top this experience. And for the price per night, this is an absolute “no-brainer” for anyone with over two people. — Dion


You Won’t Be Disappointed

September 2019

This place is amazing!!! I’ve stayed in many similar facilities across the nation and this, by far, tops them all. The hosts are accommodating but not in the way. The design of the Lodge is perfect, as if other-world inspired. There is a peace on the place that surpasses understanding. The story of the property is fascinating, be sure to get Steve to tell you about it. All I can say is, GO THERE!!! You won’t be disappointed. — Eldred


More Than Enough Room

September 2019

I stayed here with my family and was utterly amazed by the beauty of the place. It was very large and had more than enough room. I was impressed with the attention to detail the hosts had. Every base was covered!! They were accessible and helpful!! I strongly recommend this place. — Lonnie


We Will Be Back

Hot Tub Was Awesome

July 2019

You have provided so many amenities. That fact alone has made our trip 100 times more enjoyable. The hot tub was an awesome addition, but your screened porch was my favorite. Children loved feeding the fish. Nana liked eating all of our meals at the picnic table. — Alice & Steven, Ft. Worth, TX

Lodge Felt Like Home

July 2019

Just got home from a 6 night stay with our family of 16 ranging in age from 13 to 70. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful area. Steve met us to explain the hot tub and other things. The house felt like a home with all the decor. The younger generation was fascinated by the rotary phone and the desk with the fly-making tools for fishing. The teens and parents enjoyed the ping pong and pool tables. There was room for all of us to sit down for meals together. We loved making breakfast on the griddle on the covered porch. Our talented grandaughters played the organ for us and some sang along. In spite of the rain, we found things to do every day. Perfect place to enjoy a getaway with family. — The “W” family, Illinois & Kansas


Clean & Comfy

July 2019

The best VRBO you will stay at! Owners are friendly and helpful, the lodge is amazing, everything we wanted – and more – for our family vacation. Clean, comfy, warm, cozy, and HUGE… just can’t say enough about the people and the place. You won’t be disappointed! — Kathryn


Something For Everyone

July 2019

Great location that was private and quiet. The Lodge is awesome. Rooms are nice and there’s plenty to do right there on site. My family stayed over the 4th and we were busy all day with many things to do and we were easily able to relax at night with the hot tub and layout of the lodge and rooms. Would recommend to anyone. Great place that seems to have something for everyone in the family during their stay, no matter what age. — Jeremy


Grandkids Enjoyed Feeding the Fish

July 2019

Fantastic facilities – hot tub was a hit! Plenty of activities to do inside. Room to spread out (there were 16 of us). Sleeping accommodations were great. The grandkids really enjoyed foosball, ping pong and feeding the fish in the Koi pond every day. — The “W” family, Illinois & Kansas


Family Loved It Here

July 2019

I grew up coming to Bull Shoals with my family and it has been years since we have been back – my family loved it here. They are already talking about coming back. Wish we had more time here. Your home is wonderful – the pictures didn’t do it justice. — Cheryl & Jeremy, Lincoln, NE


Best Ever

July 2019

My parents taught us to love Bull Shoals and now we’re teaching the kids and grands to do the same. Your home is fabulous, and served to start the memories! One of the most comfortable getaways we have experienced. We used VRBO a lot; this home is, by far, the best ever! Thank you for such a love for people and wanting to make an impact on lives. You most certainly did on this family of 15! — Diane & Carly, Lincoln, NE


Beautiful Home and Hosts

July 2019

What a wonderful place to take our children and grandchildren! There were 15 of us, ranging from 18 months to age 58, and the house was accommodating for everyone. Plenty of space, activities inside and outside, and numerous places to kick back and relax. We’ve rented many homes for our vacations, and this was by far the best! All the little extras were great, so thoughtful! We have already recommended this home to several of our friends. Steve and Betsy were awesome, going above and beyond to make sure we had an enjoyable and relaxing time. We appreciate all the work and love they have put into The Lodge Between The Lakes! Whether you like to play games, sit around a fire, relax in the hot tub, or sip a cup of coffee on the porch, this is definitely the place for you! Thank you, Steve and Betsy, for providing a lovely place for our family to make lasting memories!! — Machele


Facilities Were Fantastic

July 2019

Owners were most kind and considerate. Lodge had plenty of room for 16 guests and many inside activities which was good because it rained 1 day. — Jerry


Best Family Vacation Ever!

July 2019

This VRBO was THE most awesome of all VRBOs we have stayed at. Owners were amazingly accommodating, friendly, and easy to work with. Every amenity possible – linens, hot tub towels, bottled water, ice, shampoo, Keurig pods, starter breakfast, paper towels, firewood….you name it, they had it. The property is AMAZING…the game room was fabulous – especially on a couple of rainy afternoons (ping-pong was the hit – but even the puzzles were fun!) Beds so comfortable. Decor was adorable, quaint, up-to-date. The little loaf of homemade bread was delicious and so welcoming. Screened-in porch provided some nice reading time. S’mores were a must at the outdoor fire pit. Kids and adults alike said “let’s do this every year here!” Just can’t say enough about the property and owners. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Our little mini-vacation/reunion was everything and more than we could have wished for! — Dian


Love Your Decorations

June 2019

Wonderful place – setting is great for a family gathering (14 of us). We love the comfort of this lodge and truly appreciate the amenities you have to offer! I love your decorations and the cleanliness and organization of your lodge. Thank you very much for making us all feel at home. — Gretna, NE


Exceeds Expectations!

June 2019

The pictures do not do the property justice. The house is amazing and Steve and Betsy think of every extra touch to make the stay more enjoyable. We brought our infant daughter along and they made sure a high chair and pack and play were out for her to use. The property is equally terrific with plenty of space to roam around. Bryce


Large Screened Deck

June 2019

What a beautiful property! Seven bedrooms, each with it’s own theme and decor. There’s a huge back deck with a large part screened in. Comfortable seating on the porch swing and comfortable cushions on the chairs. All of this overlooks a private pond with a fountain adding to the sound of the creek just below it. Large outdoor flat-top grill just outside the kitchen area. This is the place to be if you are looking for somewhere to stay that has something to do! Game room with big screen TV, ping pong, and foosball. The basement has a huge bedroom and bathroom with a beautiful pool table nearby. Outside there’s a top-of-the-line hot tub, volleyball, basketball, Frisbee golf course, and fire pit with cooking grates and ample firewood provided. There’s even even a fish-cleaning station for those who fish and bring their catch home. If you are planning a vacation or reunion and need a place to entertain kids of all ages, this is the place. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! — Leonard & Alicia, Havana, AR


Stay Was Perfect!

June 2019

You rock! You thought of everything! We vacay every year to get this and our stay was perfect! — The “M” family, Mayfield, KY


Loved the Kitchen

June 2019

We had a wonderful time at the Lodge. The kids (cousins) had a great time playing and so did the adults! We especially loved cooking in your kitchen!


Loved the Cleanliness

We loved the comfort of this lodge and truly appreciate the amenities you have to offer. I love your decorations and the cleanliness and organization of your lodge. Thank you very much for making us all feel at home. — Justin & Betsey, Gretna, NE


Great Place For a Family Gathering

Wonderful place. Setting is great for a family gathering (14 of us). — Richard & Patricia, Milford, OH


Girls Weekend

May 2019

Steve and Betsy are attentive to every little detail to make their property a fun and comfortable getaway spot. Janet


Family Time

May 2019

My family stayed on this property for 4 nights and we were so excited about the property that we didn’t really want to come home. The house and grounds were above and beyond our expectations! The grounds were spotless and the house was just beautiful. It was huge! Anyone with a large family like ours should check out this property! We joked that we could eat a meal in a different spot every time and still not use all the space. This property was close to several things that we wanted to do as a family and was still out in the country enough that the kids could run, scream, play, watch TV or play in one of the game rooms of this house and not bother anyone! Our grandkids loved the freedom that this property gave them to run and have fun. And we, as adults, enjoyed not having to make them be quiet in order to not disturb anyone. The owners of the property were there to show us around when we arrived and assured us they were only a call away. This proved true when we threw a breaker and Mr Steve was there right away to fix it. The new hot tub was an added bonus and was a great way to wind down in the evenings. The grounds were set up with many games to play, as was the game room in the house. We will definitely be visiting this property again! We hope to make this an annual family trip. You will not be disappointed with this property! Please give it a try. It would be a great place for weddings, too. I can’t say enough good stuff about this property or its owners! Thank you Steve and Betsy Johnson for your hospitality! — Melanie


Wedding Was Great

December 2019

The house was huge enough and everyone had plenty of space to move around. Everyone complimented how big and beautiful the place was. The photos for our wedding with the backgrounds are gonna be really nice. My wife and I will definitely be coming back!!! We loved every minute of being at the Lodge!


Perfect Home For Our Family Get-away

December 2018

Having a place large enough for our children and grandchildren to all stay together was wonderful. The large kitchen was supplied with all we needed and more. We were a group of six adults and seven children (ages 1 – 7) and there was plenty of room for all. Loved the large dining area, rec room, screen porch, fire pit …so many excellent features I can’t name them all. The owner’s attention to all the little details amazed us. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your lovely home. It’s everything you could want for a large vacation place. I sure hope we can come back & visit again!! Alice


Wonderful and Amazing

Dec 2018

We had a Christmas family reunion for 10 people. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom, which you don’t see that often in other places. Every room in the Lodge was decorated for Christmas. They had a 9 ft tree in the family room and it felt like home to all of us. Huge dining room with seating for 10. Large decks, several outside swings, fire pit and a fantastic game room. We had so much fun playing pool, ping pong, games, nature walks, fishing in their pond and watching the 3 TVs. I can’t say enough about this property. So much detail taken in decorating every room and equipping the kitchen with everything needed to prepare large family meals. This Lodge was amazing and we hope to go back again for another family reunion next year. Steve, the owner, responded quickly to answer all my questions. Thank you for making our family Christmas fantastic for all of us. — Nancy
