About Connie Ihle-Rubben

Connie moved from Kent, Ohio to Hot Springs, Arkansas in May 2004 to be with her eHarmony 'match' and soon to be husband, Marc Rubben. She has 3 children (ages 21,26,28) who live in Ohio. She purchased her first vacation rental in August 2004, mainly to house the extra furniture from the two households now combined. It would also be a great place for family and friends to stay when visiting. Connie takes care of all aspects of the vacation rental business. She is a perfectionist, 'clean freak' and a people pleaser! She takes great pride in providing this beautiful, clean and affordable vacation spot to others.

Marc is a professional Comedian/Ventriloquist. You may have seen him over the past 30+ years at various comedy clubs across the country, in exclusive resorts around the globe, or aboard a Carnival cruise ship. Marc was showcased on 'Accidentially Famous' a reality show aired on Comcast OnDemand in May, 2007. If you haven't seen Marc perform 'live', be sure to check out his DVD, which is in the video library on-site. Marc has 2 kids (ages 21,23)

Connie and Marc live in an underground house on the Ouachita River with their 5 dogs. They also foster dogs for the Warm Hearts Humane Society. Now you know why they own property that is 'Dog Friendly'

Connie Ihle-Rubben purchased this house in 2004

Why Connie Ihle-Rubben chose Hot Springs

Nestled in the Ouachita National Forest, this beautiful 5 acre wooded property is less than a mile from the 2nd cleanest lake in the country! The air quality out here in the country is pristine! It's just 30 minutes outside of Hot Springs, and 20 minutes from our own home. A PERFECT location in every regard.

What makes this house unique

With a Main House, Studio, Cabin and Lofted Cabin all in one location we are able to accommodate LARGE family gatherings (up to 30 people). Also perfect for church, youth or corporate retreats. The 5 wooded acres located on a small dead-end street, offer guests privacy and 'peace and quiet' from the hussle and bussle of their normally hectic lives. Quartz crystals can be found on the surface all around the property.

Love the A Frame!

  • 5 of 5
I took our sons and my niece and nephew for a trip to Hot Springs. We drove all the way from Chicago to Mt. Ida and were so tired. What a relief to arrive in the middle of the night at the A Frame! It was so lovely and welcoming! There was plenty of room for all of us - 7 in all; and it was very clean and well maintained. Connie was available to answer questions and made us feel at home. We enjoyed the house, digging for crystals, and playing at the lake. It was like our own private lake as there was no one else there. The house was very clean and well decorated. It has a style all its own. At night we could see the Milky Way from one of the balconies - something none of us will ever forget. Thanks Connie!

Great property with a professional owner.

  • 5 of 5
This property really was great for our group of 13. There are plenty of kitchens and bathrooms and the grounds are perfect for hosting a family get-together! We also dug for crystals and several of the famous properties are very nearby.

The owner is really nice and a solid communicator.

Highly recommended!

Gang of Friends Gets Away

  • 4 of 5
We (nine of us) rented the main house and the cabin for a 4-day weekend. The property was perfect! We were very comfortable. We walked down to the Twin Creek park daily, did some fishing, ventured to Oaklawn to catch the horses, spent a peaceful afternoon at Garvan Gardens, the ladies spent an afternoon at the Arlington in the spa, and so much more. The owner is very easy to communicate and work with. The place was clean and in good condition. I highly recommend this location.

Reunion with friends

  • 5 of 5
This last weekend, my old college friends and I had a reunion trip to Lake Ouachita and we stayed at this location, renting the main house, the studio, and the cabin. I live in Iowa and most of my friends live in Texas, so this was a great place to meet in the middle. When we first started planning to have a reunion, money was something of a concern. However, when I told them how great of a deal this would be, everyone got excited! This property was well worth the very affordable price. The lake was just a short drive away, making it easy to go fishing. Hiking trails were nearby, as well. On one day, we went into Hot Springs, which was only a 30 minute drive away. The property itself was well maintained. Our group really liked the keycodes on the doors--not only did it feel safe having the doors always locked, but it was also really convenient not having to need keys. I would recommend this property to all people, especially those with larger groups who enjoy the great outdoors!
