My first time here and I wasn't pleased. Rented the entire place out for a week and NO laundry facility.. Used the oven in my cabin and it filled it with smoke and couldn't even sleep in it. This place needs a little maintenance and some TLC. Save your money and stay elsewhere!

The owners are fabulous, the resort is clean and the lake is almost in your back door. Cabins are a perfect retreat and the owners will work to make your vacation exactly as you would like. The feel you get when you stay here is the you truly are 'wanted". Almost as if you were family. If you have never... More

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning another time. We booked the main lodge but due to an overlapping schedule, management gave us accommodations in the cabins til the main lodge freed up. Though this was an inconvenience, Robert did his best to makeup this problem. They kept a campfire going and the grounds had flowers blooming all... More

Rocky Hollow Lodge is exceptional! They go out of their way to make sure that your stay is the best. This was my second time staying at the Lodge and I was just as pleased as the first time I stayed, three years ago. This vacation was for my son's wedding so I had more travelers with me including 8... More

Robert was always looking to make our stay just a little better. We enjoyed the cottage, very clean and cozy. It was very close to town so easy to get food and drink. Grocery store was wonderful with reasonable prices. Great location and great owners. Also, very quiet.. We will return.

You're very kind to leave us a review though we could have had better weather and allowed for more activities outside. That early spring snow storm and freeze caught us off guard but you were so kind. You guys are forgiving and wonderful guests, please come back soon! More

You could not stay at a better, down home and friendly, as well as accommodating resort in the area. Robert and his lovely bride Patricia are the best hosts and know what they are doing when it comes to taking care of their guests. Can't wait to get back there each year!!!

My husband and I are avid and whimsical travelers, and we and our beloved little Shih Tzus have criss crossed the country together for many years. We prefer to spend our time in cabins- as opposed to hotels- as we truly love exploring our surroundings and being off the beaten path. On a recent trip we were unbelievably fortunate to... More

We're so happy you found us! The best part of our jobs is we get to enjoy the relationships we develop with our customers, many of whom have become lifelong friends. If I have a regret, its that time constraints and demands of the businesses we operate curb our ability to show every guest how much they mean to us... More

Loved staying here. We stayed over christmas break and really enjoyed our time. The area is so beautiful, the cabin was clean and cozy! Loved the view from the private dock. Took a 20 min drive to hike the Buffalo National River. Perfect Christmas get away!

My husband, 22 month old son and I just spent three nights and had a blast! Was even supplied with extra pillows to make a guard rail in the guest bedroom. Great shaded playground area to have your coffee and let the kids play. Water shoes are needed for lake access and the boat dock. Good location and great vacation... More

At first we weren't sure about this place. The cabins 1 and 2 were small especially the kitchens. But by the end of our stay, we were wanting to stay another day. The location is the best in Bull Shoals. The convenience of walking down the path to the lake and private dock is worth the stay alone. It is... More

Thank you for your kind review. Especially candid criticism, without which we could easily become complacent.
