The Shindig '18 crew from Arkansas ... June, 2018
We had a wonderful time in your home. Thank you so much for the hospitality. We hope it is available next year!
The Rieves from Arkansas ... June, 2018
We had the best time. Your place is so nice. We come every year and this house is our pick to stay. Stayed here 3 years in a row.
Lisa from Arkansas ... Jan., 2018
This rental was a lifesaver for our family. We had 13 family members from California in town for a funeral and burial in Higden near Greers Ferry. This property, located in Quitman, was the perfect middle point between Heber Springs and Higden while dealing with the arrangements. Eleven people ranging in age from 5 to 78 were comfortably accommodated and the beds in the loft were spaced far enough apart for everyone's luggage to fit in between. This property is beautiful and the pictures do not do the outside justice. The home is very inviting, nicely decorated, roomy, clean, and well-maintained. Everyone enjoyed looking at all the old pictures and decorations, books and games on the shelves. It was too cold to sit on the deck, but it would be a great place to hang out and enjoy the peace of the countryside. The house has everything you need except your own groceries. The owner was very helpful before, during, and after the stay and our deposit was promptly refunded. This would be a great vacation rental and is just a quarter mile from lake access.
Vanessa from Oklahoma ... Oct., 2016
This home provided the perfect location for the celebration of my 12 year old daughter's birthday. Fire pit, s'mores, etc..
Greg from Arkansas ... July, 2016
Pictures can't really give you the full beauty of this rental. Very nice and excellent condition. We had 13 people in our party and it was able to accommodate all of us. Everything was immaculate. John met us there upon arrival and was very friendly. He had all the supplies and utensils fully stocked and the only thing we had to worry about was the food. It was very relaxing to go out on the back deck and just enjoy the atmosphere and nature without all the big city noises. I would highly recommend this rental. Definitely a 5-star.
Stella from Tennessee ... July, 2016
Enjoyed a week's stay at this vacation rental. It had plenty of room for our 8 guests, 4 of which were children. It had all the necessary things we needed to make our week complete. (all cooking utensils, grill, and towels) There is a rec area with boat launch very close that we used daily, but be prepared to pay a daily fee of $5. If we weren't on the water, we were on the back porch in the swing. Heber is only 7 miles away for groceries and restaurants. If you are looking to unplug, this is a good getaway and I would recommend this home. Homeowner was very good to work with and refund deposit was returned promptly.
Daniel from Illinois ... July, 2016
The house was perfect for our family. We enjoyed the property and the location. The deer and other wildlife were awesome. John and Susan keep everything clean and comfortable. We look forward to returning.
Harold from Missouri ... July, 2016
My family and I all converged on this property from 3 different states for 4 days of R&R. We were in contact with the owner, John, several times in the weeks prior and he was very accommodating and flexible with regard to the property and very helpful with information about local businesses and attractions. The home is beautiful and well kept, all the adventure you want is within 30 minutes, and we liked the fact that you can go back anytime of the day and relax in the quiet area. There is a beach just a 1/4 mile down the road. I recommend driving it due to the road not having provision for walking near the road. We had 13 people ranging from 10 months to 49 yrs. of age and found this to be potentially the spot for an annual retreat with the group. Thank you, John! The memories are made.
Peter from Arkansas ... June, 2016
This property is great for medium-sized groups, as long as some of the group is ready to sleep in the loft (which is nice, just limited on privacy).
Positives: Nice home, nice deck, nice fire area, well-stocked kitchen, good room for playing games or working puzzles at table, good lake access (only via car), very nice and accessible owners (onsite, refunded the security deposit in a timely manner)
Negatives: loft stairs are a little treacherous for smaller children (definitely not recommended for under the age of 3-4), no walking access to the lake (which I mistakenly understood to be the case).
Thanks for the positive 5-star review on our vrbo site. Thanks for all of your comments. They help us to evaluate your concerns and clarify things about our home for future guests.
As you note, there is limited privacy in the loft area. That can be seen to be the case from two of our photos of that area. It is primarily for sleeping with one full bed and 4 twins.
Our stairs have a standard tread-to-rise ratio. As a builder, i have always tried to avoid steep stairs. Again, our photos show that they are normal looking stairs. As all parents know, many "normal" things in life are "treacherous" to a 3 yr. old child. We welcome small children because we want to encourage families to be families and to build memories together.
I am sorry that you mistakenly thought there was walking access to the lake. Our house is about 1/4 mile from the lake as our listing info states in several places. I guess that's walking distance for some people. Not me. LOL. The trip there is downhill. Coming back is quite a climb. I'll just drive. Thanks for mentioning this. Your review can help serve to clarify this point to others.
Again, thanks for coming. Hope you had a blessed visit with your out-of-state friends.
Abigail from Tennessee ... June, 2016
We really enjoyed our stay! Very private and quiet. The house was very spacious and we had everything we needed. The deck was our afternoon spot! We had such an amazing weekend. We will definitely come again! John was very nice. Thank you again and God bless!
Family Vacation from Arkansas ... May, 2016
The large porch was a favorite for everyone! We will be back and highly recommend this home to others!
Kevin from Arkansas .... April, 2016
Stayed here for two days in April for my daughter's 16th birthday party. Great house with lots of room, big kitchen with everything you need and just down the road from the lake. Lots of room for the kids, very reasonably priced. Would love to stay there again.
Women's Retreat from Arkansas ... March, 2016
Really enjoyed our stay at Bean Point Farm House. Ten women on a retreat and it was plenty of room with a well stocked kitchen and plenty of linen. Loved looking at the old pictures and trying to guess how many pieces are in the puzzle over the TV. Thank you John for your quick responses. Great renters and great property. Would definitely return.
Derek from Missouri ... Oct., 2015
This is a great place to stay! Our family enjoyed it as there was lots of room. The house is very welcoming and beautifully decorated, while still being comfortable to stay in. It was really nice how well set up the house is. The kitchen is set up great, and it seemed like everything we could need had been thought of throughout the house.
We loved how close the lake was. The fishing was lots of fun! The disc golf course was great, and we spent quite a bit of time enjoying it. We loved seeing deer and other wildlife right outside the house.
The owner was friendly and extremely helpful, and really did his best to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We absolutely will keep this property in mind if we are able to come back to Heber Springs in the future!
Stan from Kansas .... Sept., 2015
Owner met us at the house at a very early morning hour, introduced himself and gave us a walk through and various information regarding lights, property access and available amenities. We were very pleased with the house, deck, yard and other options. We would stay there again if the opportunity arises.
Diana from Illinois ... Aug., 2015
We so enjoyed our stay at Bean Point!! This is the perfect place to stay. Well stocked and immaculate. Loved the huge deck and beautiful scenery. We felt right at home from the minute we arrived. Owners were very nice and helpful with suggestions for touring the area. Very beautiful home (inside and outside). Would love to go back!!
Jeff from Mississippi ... Aug., 2015
This was our second stay at Bean Point and we will be going back again. Plenty of room and very nice house, and easy access to the lake. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay.
Amy from Mississippi ... July, 2015
Great place to stay, beautiful house!!! Very peaceful. The owners are super nice Christian folks.
Bobby from New York ... July, 2015
Nice new place close to Rec. Area. House has everything that's needed. Highly recommend.
Don from Arkansas ... June, 2015
This rental has everything you are looking for. John has built a beautiful house on a lovely location providing you a peaceful place to have a family gathering. John was very helpful with the booking process, questions, and southern hospitality when we arrived. As we toured the house, we felt such a peace which made us feel like we had arrived somewhere special. We enjoyed hearing the family history displayed in the photos hanging in the house, family heirloom antiques, and in regards to the property location. The house provided everything we needed for our gathering of two families, 8 people in total. With 2 bedrooms downstairs and the loft upstairs, there was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The house has a very open floor plan with space to hang out and visit or gather around the tables to play one of the many games you'll find stocked on the shelves for some family fun. During the day, we sat on the back deck to enjoy the beauty outdoors while the kids had lots of room to run, play, and explore. At night, we gathered around the fire pit to build a fire and make some s'mores. We made fun, family memories at the farm house. We were highly satisfied with both the property and the owner. We would definitely stay here again! We would highly recommend this rental property!
Jim from Arkansas ... June, 2015
I live here and needed a place to have family up for a weekend. They came from TN, TX, and AR. Ten people total. The house easily handled all of them. The back porch is perfect for late afternoon BBQ's after being on the lake all day. The kitchen is large enough to handle all your needs. I would recommend to any one looking to get away from it all, and escape the city life. Listen to the Whisper-Will's, and Owls, watch the Deer crossing the back yard while sitting by the outdoor fire pit in the evening ..... great time..
Ashley from Arkansas ... Nov., 2014
Perfect for a girls' weekend or a family weekend .... even an extended family retreat ... We enjoyed coffee and apple cider each morning from the awesome deck - each morning I saw deer just feet from the deck. The farm house offered 2 private bedrooms with 2 large bathrooms and an open loft (will be perfect for the kids when we go back). We opted to cook our Friday meal at the house - the kitchen was very well furnished for a small or large meal. Saturday, we enjoyed the small shops in Heber and views of the lake. We met the owners as we arrived and they were so sweet - made our stay feel a little more like we were at a home away from home and not just any ol rental property .... definitely will go back.
Jeff from Mississippi ... Oct., 2014
Really nice place to stay and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about how nice the property is or how friendly the owners are. We will certainly be booking again in the summer. We want to be able to enjoy the great deck. Absolutely no problems with the booking or quality of property. We really enjoyed our time there although it rained every day.
Jeanne from Tennessee .. Aug., 2014
A beautiful home in a quiet, out of the way spot! We really enjoyed relaxing on the big porch. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Cove Creek Park is less than 5 minutes away with a boat dock and beach. The owners are very nice and helpful and have done a great job decorating and furnishing the house. Overall, a very pleasant stay. We would definitely go back.
Scotty from Arkansas ... July, 2014
The house was excellent and the hosts were MORE than accommodating. It is within 5 minutes of Greers Ferry Lake and it is very nice and quiet. The back patio is where we spent most of our time. The house is very open and the entire property has a lot of family history that is very interesting. I would definitely recommend John and Susan to anyone and we will MOST definitely be staying again in the future!
