Whether you arrive by hiking or driving, you can then leisurely stroll to the town of Hot Springs to enjoy fine dining, galleries, library and the spa located on the historic grounds of the old Warm Springs Hotel.
Spotlessly clean and 'green' inside, with custom woodwork throughout, the cottage features exuberant, sunny, fenced cottage gardens.

We both make our living in Knoxville, Tennessee, as self-employed contractors and get over to Hot Springs as often as we can.

Why Melanie Prater chose Hot Springs
On trips through the mountains many years ago we were captivated by the area of Warm/Hot Springs. We finally found a small place to renovate and have been here ever since. For many years our extended families and numerous friends were the main visitors. We are now delighted to add guests from all over the world to that number. Guestbooks in the cottage detail some of our visitors' experiences.
What makes this cottage unique
Known locally as 'Granny Cody's House,' today Chapel View is cozy, comfortable and authentic in every respect. The historic Jesuit Retreat House across the way from Chapel View is now under new management with the name of Laughing Heart Lodge. The people of Hot Springs welcome visitors and celebrate their community. The public library and elementary school are essential to the sustainability and charm of this good community.
