Beaver Lake If you get a chance to extend your vacation, check out www.beaverlakefrontcabins.net. Beaver lake is a beautiful attraction, the Schwartzman family got a chance to hang out, innertube, boat, and ride wave runners there just last September. It’s a great place to rent some gear of any kind and spend a day relaxing. You’ll find luxurious resorts, rustic cabins, and clean campsites.

Many of our wedding guests will be staying at Devil’s Den instead of The Cosmopolitan in Fayetteville. Trust me, it has everything and more, just go there and enjoy, please!
