From your innkeepers. . .
We vacationed on Bull Shoals Lake for years with our own kids – who loved to water ski, wakeboard, and swim. We realized there was no other place quite like Trimble Creek Lodge on this lake – a place where families can gather in privacy but with a few more amenities than were typically offered in this region.
Our business here was born in 2002 with the desire to create a vacation location for families that was distinctive, yet simple and relaxed – the way our family likes to vacation. Because this lake is so clean, large, and open, we felt secure teaching our young children to water ski and kneeboard here. We didn’t worry about other boats getting too close if the kids fell while water skiing or tubing, or if we just wanted to stop our boat somewhere and jump out for a cooling swim!
Living on the Trimble Creek Lodge property, we can provide our guests assistance as well as free homemade food items and baking lessons for those who want to learn to bake our recipes for bread, pies, and other desserts. In this wilderness setting we can also offer advice about shopping, safety, boat or canoe rentals, and other activities.
To keep it simple for you, we launder your swim, kitchen, and bath towels during your stay. We strive to make every getaway memorable and unique while not interfering with family fun and celebrations. When asked if a group’s noisy, late-night celebrations will bother us, we often reply, “In 16 years, no one has ever been as loud as our own wonderfully boisterous family!”
We are honored by the many wonderful families and groups who in the last 16 years have chosen Trimble Creek Lodge for their vacations and getaways. Over the years we have created many memories during our own family vacations with our children and extended family and friends. We hope you will do the same during your time here with us in Arkansas, the Natural State. We are fortunate our kids still return to “the Lake.” As a family, we treasure the things that are most different from our daily lives – long and competitive card games, lazy afternoons on the lake, learning new ways to have fun in the water – tubing, skiing, wakeboarding, fishing, and making up games of our own!
Here at Trimble Creek Lodge we hope you enjoy leaving your normal lives behind, too, and experiencing life in our unique, natural setting where summer days are distinctive, simple, and relaxed. Enjoy fixing and eating family breakfasts or dinners when no one is rushed to get to work, soccer, or school. Take the time to enjoy a quiet morning outdoors listening to the birds. Have a family story/discussion night and hear everyone’s stories – from Grandpa as well as from the young ones. Instead of going to the gym, enjoy walking or running on the lanes among the cottages and grounds or down to the lake and back. Borrow a book from our library and read it outdoors, on the dock, or in one of our cozy nooks. Play games with your kids or friends. Relax. Enjoy the views.
Please let us know any questions you may have about Trimble Creek Lodge. Our hope is that your family and friends will build your own memories and vacation traditions here in one of the most pristine, natural environments you will find in all of the United States. We look forward to welcoming you to the Lake!
