About this property

Ozark Mountain Paradise- Greers Ferry Lake - Moon Shadow Lodge

Delightful beach lodge with a spa tub
The perfect escape from civilization ... Moon Shadow Lodge is set deep in a primeval forest ... mystical and magical in all four seasons ... perfect for friends ... lovers ... honeymooners ... family reunions ... church groups ... business associates ... film makers and nature lovers.

The Lodge is set between two cascading waterfalls that flow into Water Step Cove after every rain. It is surrounded by a gated wilderness of 250 private acres and rises out of the ground on a solid foundation of Ozark native stone with white cedar logs and huge insulated picture windows framing a panoramic view of our beautiful Greers Ferry Lakefront. Here is where you can find Seclusion, Tranquility, Luxury, Adventure and Excitement in our Enchanted Emerald Forest!

With 2800 square feet of interior floor space and 1800 square feet of decks and covered breezeways ... the Lodge has a total of 4600 square feet of enjoyable spaces ... like a giant treehouse.
Greers Ferry Lake is one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in the Ozark Mountains ... spread across two counties in north central Arkansas ... with pristine waters for swimming, skiing, scuba diving and world class fishing,

Your adventure begins the moment you turn left off scenic Alum Cave Road and arrive at the gated entrance to the Cascadia Wilderness ... framing an incredible view of Greers Ferry Lake ... 500 feet below ... with the Ozark Mountain Highlands rising in the distance.

After passing through the gate you will descend down the terraces of Cascadia Pass ... through one mile of jungle like terrain ... winding slopes with panoramic views ... until you arrive at Moon Shadow Lodge and Water Step Cove ... a remote paradise ... a 5 Star operation ... check out our reviews since we opened for business in 2016.

The Cascadia Wilderness is ideal for hiking, mountain biking and four wheeling with a network of woodland trails to explore ... along the lake ... through mountain passes ... and deep down in shady hollows ... put on a bandana ... and follow the trails ...in any season you will have a blast. Be safe and respect the forest!

Why travel overseas when you can enjoy an exotic and luxurious waterfront lodge... near the center of the USA!

Disappear into the emerald forests of the Ozark Mountains ... hide out in the Arkansas Highlands ... remote, relaxing, luxurious and fun.

The calming effect is amazing!! Become one with Nature!

Enjoy the blazing summer sunsets, scarlet moonlights and stellar constellations ... listen to an incredible chorus of birds, insects, whispering winds, rustling leaves, lapping waves and trickling waters. On a clear night you should turn off the lights ... sit on the deck and enjoy the sensations.

On a stormy night you can often just turn off the lights to watch a spectacular lightning show over the lake ... and then go hiking with a camera the next morning to check out the waterfalls

With a good camera, some good hiking or climbing shoes, a backpack, bug spray and a tall walking stick ... you will completely forget about your smart phone or tablet!

The Lodge is nestled deep in a hollow between mountain and lake ... with a heavenly place to swim, fish, dive, boat ... or just relax on a big flat rock to catch the brilliant sunsets lighting up the sky.

On either side of Water Step Cove lies Moon Shadow Beach ... with a beautiful view of Sugarloaf Island National Trail rising out of the lake to the east ... and the brilliant sunsets that slowly disappear behind Choctaw Ridge to the west. The soft shale beach is interspersed with stacks of wide flat rocks making it easy to step or dive into the clear blue water.

Instead of sea shells ... here you can hunt for magical "Aetites," the Greek word for Eaglestones. These unusual looking stones ... a mixture of iron, sand and clay ... were once rented as magic amulets to pregnant ladies by sorcerers in ancient pagan times to protect their unborn child from the evil demoness with many names ... such as Lilith or Gello. Some stones are quite interesting, beautiful and useful as ashtrays or baby shower gifts.

The pictures fail to fully illustrate the beauty of the Lodge and it's incredible setting ... so we created a face book page for "Moon Shadow Lodge" where you can go to learn more about this special place ... or share photographs and post stories about your exotic experience in this Ozark Mountain Paradise.

A prior world record Walleye was caught not far from the Lodge ... and below the John F. Kennedy Dam on the Little Red River you will find world record Trout!

To learn more about the lake check out this site:

Our goal is to make your stay unforgettable ... and if you find it difficult to leave ... we have 3 acre lots for sale on Paradise Lane and smaller lots on Alum Cave Road ... all with panoramic views of the lake, the mountains and the forest. Check out the map. I would be more than happy to take you on a tour.

The Perfect Getaway
We had the best trip! The views are breathtaking and it was everything we thought it would be and more!! We will definitely be coming back to visit. Thank you, Dugan. 😊

5/5 Excellent

Property was amazing. Can't wait to return.
I recommend this property 100%. You will not be disappointed at all.

4/5 Good

Very nice house
Overall we had a very good experience and thought the house was very nice and well appointed. There are two things that I think could really be improved on. First is the mattress on the bed in the king bedroom. Honestly it is one of if the hardest mattress I have ever tried to sleep on and made sleeping very difficult and painful. I would suggest some type of topper or a new and softer mattress. Secondly is the grill needs to have the charcoal grate replaced or the entire grill should be replaced. Charcoal kept falling through the grate and caused issues. As nice as the house is it should have a nicer grill. Again overall we had a great stay and would rent this location again.

5/5 Excellent

Awesome Getaway
If you are looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting to get away from it all, this is the property for you! The lodge has everything we needed to cook, relax and just enjoy our time together. The provided kayaks, paddle board and floaties were awesome, and we spent most of our time just hanging out in the water. Also, big shout out for the ice machine too. That worked awesome to fill Coolers for the day. We also brought atvs and explored the property in the morning before it got too hot! We rented a boat one day from the marina and highly recommend. Dugan was a great host, responded very quickly, and he worked fast to remedy any problems or issues we had. We appreciated his detailed instructions for the ride in, and we didn’t have any issues navigating the road down. We are used to that type of terrain where we live, though. I could see that making some people nervous if you don’t drive on gravel often. No complaints from us, and we’d love to book this again in the future. Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Moon Shadow cabin
Enjoyed our stay. If you’re looking for a private, on the lake, large cabin, this is the place.
