Wooded and Amenity-Rich, the Lakeside Community of Holiday Island in Northwestern Arkansas Boasts a Wide Range of Home Styles and Prices
Just outside of Eureka Springs in northwestern Arkansas, Holiday Island is a planned community on the shores of Table Rock Lake. This is a vacation destination but has a sizeable pre-retiree and retiree population.
The community spreads on 4,500 wooded, rolling acres and has 5,000 home sites, many of which are still for sale. Currently, 2,500 people live here, although not all are full time residents. Housing is comprised of town homes and single family homes, primarily ranch ramblers, but there is no cookie cutter feeling. Properties range from the very modest to the elegant.
Homes start at around $100,000 and top out about $400,000. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are bound to change over time.
Table Rock Lake has 53,000 acres of crystal blue water and is why many people live here. The Holiday Island marina is peppered with both powerboats and sailboats.
Other amenities include tennis courts, basketball courts, two swimming pools, a miniature golf course, 27 holes of regular golf, a clubhose, RV storage and more. Holiday Island also has three fire stations and its own emergency medical care system (EMTs and ambulances).
