“Very Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

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 around. There were plenty of conveniences provided that were above the usual expected. Its obvious that management puts forth its best foot.

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 and 5 yr. old grandchildren. We chose Rocky Hollow again based on their family oriented environment and the wonderful hospitality we received from our previous stay. The cabin was perfect with the small kitchen for preparing meals with so many of us, and the grocery store within 5 minutes. The open space and playground for the kids to enjoy, and the beautiful Bull Shoals lake right behind our cabin, where my grandson enjoyed fishing off the dock. The location is great and within 5-15 min. of things to do such as White River State Park among other parks, Bull Shoals Dam, rent a boat and spend the day on Bull Shoals Lake. The area is absolutely beautiful! I love the rustic setting and natural environment that Rocky Hollow provides and I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone who values nature, peacefulness, hospitality, and being treated well during your stay. Rocky Hollow Lodge is my home away from home.

We appreciate the priviledge and the opportunity to serve and provide a setting where families can come to be together, often after long periods of seperation and for so few days. Our goal is to keep the best memories of your life - the time with your family - free of distractions and captured in pictures so you may enjoy them for years to come. Patricia and I both say thank you and look forward to a summer visit and a Sunset Ceremony. Much love to you and your family!

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.

Room Tip: There were no pets and no smoking so the choices are there.

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!

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 find Rocky Hollow, a haven on the banks of Bull Shoals Lake. On arrival, Robert, our gracious host, greeted us and led us to our cabin- one of the many he lovingly maintains- and immediately made us feel welcome. Each cabin is cozy and unique- perfect for a couple or small family- and there is a lodge for larger groups. I can't imagine any easier access to the lake- swimming, kayaking, and fishing are only footsteps away. Equally wonderful- Rocky Hollow is totally pet friendly, and our beloved pups enjoyed it as much as we did. We will most certainly be back, and I hope you will come and enjoy this delightful retreat too!

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 as much as we'd like. We had a great time singing and playing guitars with you both. Thanks again for sharing your experience with other potential guests!

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 spot for a very reasonable price. We enjoyed it!
