This beautiful, very private apartment retreat, with separate outside entrance, is located on the walkout level of a new custom home on a quiet, less traveled, canopied lane in Hot Springs Village. It is just the place to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature that abound here! Take the “wooden walkway” at the edge of the forest, to this special place, where the sounds of the woods and stream below offer serenity and peace for your special vacation. The apartment features a lovely Arkansas room, living room with adjacent efficiency kitchen and soft, comfortable places for reading and relaxing. The king sized bedroom and bath are spacious and well appointed. The covered lanai, off both bedroom and Arkansas room, provide for comfortable and private outdoor living, year around. There is a lower deck, closer to streamside, accessible by forest path and wooden steps set into the hillside. If you’re surefooted and are up for the trek, this deck is a wonderful place to really “feel” the forest and watch the wildlife all around. You might even get a glimpse of a deer family frolicking in the stream or see a beautiful red fox! ForestGlen apartment is beautifully furnished with textiles and collectibles obtained from our visits to Thailand, Asia and Indonesia, along with original art and prints collected over many years. The location is ideal for those wanting easy access to all Village amenities, including golf courses, fitness center, trail systems, outdoor pools, tennis center and 12 beautiful lakes! Mano Way is a great place to ride a bike or take a “walk with nature” as it loops around thru the forest and back to your starting point…. exactly a mile in length. Along the way you may see deer, a red-tailed hawk, a turtle or two and lots of wildflowers. You may hear an owl and much conversation among birds in the canopy above. We are "dog friendly" and we will warmly welcome your canine travel companion, providing he/she has good house manners. A small pet fee is required. Stay for a couple of days or more…. You’ll be glad you came!
If you will be traveling with friends, be sure to ask about our Sunny Oaks Casita studio, another wonderful oasis in the forest that is easily accessible from Forest Glen, yet with it's own covered outdoor living and private entrance, on the opposite side of the house from the Lanai apartment. The Casita is a one bedroom studio apartment featuring queen bed; an efficiency kitchen; comfortable sitting area and 3/4 bath. Furnishings in Sunny Oaks are Southwest/South American in design. When joined, the two apts. will comfortably accommodate four people.
Hot Springs Village is America's largest gated community and is a wonderful place to vacation or live, with spectacular scenery, moderate climate, warm and friendly people, relaxed and casual lifestyle and some of the best golf, boating and recreational opportunities you’ll find anywhere! Hot Springs Village and neighboring Hot Springs (just 20 minutes away!), also offer great restaurants, live music/concerts, art galleries and events, botanical gardens, horse racing at Oaklawn, family fun at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls and lots of shopping!
Lake Ouachita State Park and Marina is just 20 minutes from the Village West Gate. The lake, dubbed “Arkansas’ Ocean”, is 50 miles long with over 200 islands for picnicing and relaxing…….. it is a vacation paradise for those who love boating and fishing, kayaking and scuba diving. If you are up for a real treat, take a morning or late day cruise with Captain Jim on our new 22 ft. pontoon on Lake Ouachita. See the wildlife and all the birds and glimpse "The Natural State" in all it's glory!
In a nutshell... the Village and surrounding area is “the whole package”, a great vacation destination or lifestyle choice for retirees or an entire family!

Greetings from Jim and Jill Anderson and Hot Springs Village! Jill is a real estate broker and Jim has been a general contractor for 30 years, building everything from golf resorts to custom homes in PA, CO and AR. During the 90's in Durango, CO, we owned and operated Country Sunshine Bed and Breakfast. We miss many things about Colorado... including the awesome beauty, but we don't miss the cold, the snow and the high prices!
Jill Anderson purchased this apartment in 2007
Today we are happily living the good life in Hot Springs Village. We decided on the Village after much on-line and in-person research. We wanted a beautiful spot, with low cost of living and lots of amenities that would be close to our children in Mississippi and Texas. We purchased our Troza Lane townhome in 2006 and lived in it while we built our new home here. Later, we decided to keep the townhome and make it available to friends and family who visit and occasional paying guests. We have had so many requests for bookings that we decided in 2008 to add our guest apartments, here at the house, to give us three vacation rental options. So, now we have something for everyone and since we love hosting people who come to the Village to explore, play and enjoy themselves, we are truly in our element…..it’s almost like the B&B, but without the Breakfast!
We furnish our units with comfortable furniture and quality bedding. They are all nicely decorated with things we love….a few “family' antiques, original art and momentos we have picked up on our many travels. We are dog friendly, knowing that since our golden Gracie and our border collie, Mac, are part of our family, your canine companions must be too! We look forward to making one of our vacation rentals your “home away from home”!
Jill and Jim: Randy and I had a wonderful time here in your lovely apartment. We loved everything about it from the homey feel, to the luxurious king size bed, to the babbling brook and the awesome deck and view - just to name a few. Thank you for everything and you can bet that we'll be back!
My husband and I stayed for the weekend. It was super cozy with nice and comfy amenities. Lovely little get away. We would like to visit again when the weather is warmer, so as to enjoy the peaceful outdoor setting.
Our stay at Forest Glen was better than we expected! The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable. It had everything we needed to feel at home! From the gas grill to the comphy recliners! Our view each morning for breakfast, set the tone for the day. Watching the sunset through the trees in the evening was so relaxing (the wine helped too!). It was a short drive to Hot Springs, as well as restaurants and the grocery store. We found that using the West Gate visitors entrance was the best way to get in and out! If they will have us again, we are going to plan a trip in October!!!
We enjoyed our stay in an area that seemed to be deep in the woods. The apartment backs up to a small creek that creates a peaceful setting. The neighborhood is perfect for boating and golfing. We took off on a bike ride with our dog the one morning it wasn't raining and it was a fun place to explore. The Andersons were on the property most of the time but we still felt like we had our own private space.
Our stay was the best except for the issue of privacy. Someone came in while we were out and raised the window in our unit. I felt this was an invasion of my privacy . It was a cold morning and we had our rooms warm and wanted to keep them warm for our return. We did not leave heaters on while we were out. Other than this the unit is perfect.
Forest Glen is a little jewel located near the center of Hot Springs Village, which is a 26,000 acre development, so location is important. The apartment is well appointed, with a king size bed, quite comfortable, a well sized bathroom with soft towels, and a living/dining area with twin recliners facing a nice tv with more channels than one could ever hope to watch. The dining area seats two comfortably with a beautiful view of the hillside and seating area at the base of the steps. The deck is suitable for enjoying the wildlife and the aforementioned view, and for enjoying an adult beverage after a round of golf at one of the several local courses. My wife and I have enjoyed stating here 4 or 5 times and intend to continue to be regulars.
A recreation lover's paradise! Golfing, hiking, boating all in the beautiful Ouachita Mountains of central Arkansas!
