“who wrote all those good reviews?”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

we chose this place based on the reviews, but we were so disappointed in this run-down 'resort' that we nearly asked for our money back, but we didn't want the hassle of lookin' for another place to stay. when we first drove up, I initially thought the place was abandoned, there were no other people stayin' there and the pool was uncovered and full of leaves, although this was late October. the drive into the property needed to be mowed.
we checked in then got the key to our cabin, which was not very clean, and smelled like a sour mopbucket, so we drove into town and bought a candle, and after burning it a few hours, we could live with it. we also had to buy a 2-prong extension cord to plug into the antique recepticles so that we could use our breathing apparatus. either that or sleep in the bathroom or next to the fridge, those were the only 3-prong plug-ins. we always eat out, so we didn't worry much about the dirt in the silver wear drawer. at least I hope that's what it was. whoever cleaned the bathroom left the wash cloths from the previous tenant hangin' on the shower curtain.
we're not hard to please, and this is the first critical review i've ever done, but I hope this saves someone else from makin' the same mistake that we did. I would have gladly conveyed this to the owners but once we got our key, we NEVER saw or heard from them again during our entire stay. if we didn't get the worst cabin on the property, i'd hate to see one worse than ours.

We stayed here in May of 2012 while exploring the area. Accommodations are not luxurious, but then that's OK. Everything was neat and clean and the owners treated us like "friends." My wife got leads to some quilt/fabric stores and I got a tip on a great Thai food place in town.

Room Tip: The two-bedroom cottage on the left as you come in had great privacy.

We were here for a family lake trip and it was fantastic! The owner's were very welcoming and the resort was in top-notch condition! The pool was always sparkling clean and the pontoon that we rented was only a short car ride or doable walk away. We went to Lake Norfork everyday on the pontoon that we rented from Hummingbird Hideaway and slept comfortably each night in the cabin. The cabins are home but super clean and nice inside. The air conditioners and all applianes were in top-notch shape. I highly recommend this resort as a place to stay on Lake Norfork!

Lou and Linda, the owners of this fine resort go out of their way to make their guests feel at home. It was our first time here and my wife and I went for a week for our 36th anniversary. It was very hot but the cabins were well airconditioned and had no problem staying cool. The cabins were very clean and well kept up. They do have a boat ramp and altho the short 1/2 mile drive to the covered boat slips was a dirt road it was not to bad. the grounds were well kept up and the pool clean. Movies out by the pool on Mondays and Thursdays. If you like to fish Lou is a master. He caught a 25 pound striper and had no trouble showing me his secrets to catching fish on the lake. This was our first trip to Hummingbird Hideaway Resort but will not be our last. What an awesome experience.

Norfork Lake is such a beautiful lake we visit for a week each summer.This summer our group consisted of 13 people . I would highly recommend staying at this resort. Rooms are spacious and clean. The pool and playground area are perfect for kids and adults.They show movies out by the pool which the kids thought was great.The boat ran very well and was excellent on gas. The owners are friendly and even keep supplies on hand to purchase if you need.Will be back next summer

We absolutely love Lake Norfork and have always enjoyed our stays at Hummingbird Hideaway. For two years we have stayed in cabin 10, which I believe is the newest cabin and very comfortable for our group of 7. Previously we had stayed in cabin 3, which is the oldest and probably the least modern of the cabins. It had fairly close quarters for our family, but we spent most of our time on the lake, so we were content. The resort offers movie nights at the pool twice during the week. The kids always enjoy that. The grounds are neatly kept. We have no complaints. It's a great place for a family vacation!

We had a bad experience with a different resort for the first part of our trip and ended up switching to this one mid week. They were very accomodating. The room was IMMACULATE and up-to-date. It was so clean my two children were able to take a bath in the tub there. It was very quiet there and very minimal traffic. The pool area was nice and they provided several tubes, toys, water squirters for the kids. Nice sturdy playground for the kids to go on. The one night they had movie night by the pool which my son really enjoyed. It was my son's birthday and the owner was very gracious and let him pick out some candy from the store. I would highly recommend staying here, if you want a nice clean, relaxing place to come to.
