We are Lee & June Van Essen, the new owners and operators of Holiday Shores Resort on Bull Shoals Lake, Arkansas. For us, the idea of owning our own resort began 20+ years ago when our family reunions were at places just like this. We want to provide the same opportunity for other families to create their own memories that they'll remember for years to come.


Holiday Shores is comprised of 13 completely renovated cabins, all with their own kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms and living area & boat slips*.

"We enjoyed our stay here and the new owner is a wonderful host. The remodeling is great and everything is so fresh and clean."

"The new owners of Holiday Shores Resort have spent a lot of time renovating this resort and it is very nice. Great docking facilities even during high water and just a short walk to the docks. The owners are incredibly nice and great to be around. We will definitely be back!"
