About Bob J. Cotnam

I lived in a 'gated' community , Diamondhead on Lake Catherine for (20) yrs. I would still be there if I had not found this place. I named it 'Fantasy Island' the first time I saw it, even before I bought it.

Bob J. Cotnam purchased this house in 1991

Why Bob J. Cotnam chose Hot Springs

It was love @ first site. The love affair is strong as ever.

What makes this house unique

My wife and I live upstairs. We're a couple in our (60s & 80s). This our livelyhood. Your unit is private. There is no access from our unit and yours. We appreciate each & every visitor, and will honor your privacy. There is 2-1/4 acres and over 1100 ft of shoreline, when you visit, its all YOURS. We never interfere with our visitors. There are many times when someone needs assistances, in that case, we're here to help.

Memories!!

  • 4 of 5

The property was more than we bargained for! Great Amenities! The price is superb! We stayed there with two families! The house itself is pretty plain jane but there's no reason to be in the house when you have everything outside. The Island was alot of fun, the paddleboats were enjoyed everyday. The boat was great to get around the lake on as well! The tube wasn't great, but useable. The only downside was how dirty the floors in the house got, there were no cleaning supplies either, My Cotnam did bring down a vacuum for us to use, but it didn't work very well. The only other thing that didn't get it five stars was unfortunately the host's do stay upstairs, so you can hear their foot traffic in the mornings, and throughout the day, not great for little ones trying to sleep. We would definitely stay there again though if we get back that way!

Fantasy Island was everything we had hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Hot Spring for a family reunion - myself, my husband, older son, preteen daughter and her friend. Fantasy Island was the perfect place to stay and was enjoyed by all! Beautiful property! We took advantage of the volleyball court, the paddle boats, the fire pit on the island and the boat for a day of tubing and fun on the lake. We had several family reunion activities that took us away from the house, but we could have spent the entire weekend right there and had a great time! Bob and his wife are wonderful hosts and they did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. And they had great recommendations for places to go in town and good places to eat. We will absolutely be back again with many more friends in tow!

Excellent Location and Host

  • 5 of 5

We rented this vacation spot over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time! There was plenty of space for the 12 of us who were meeting up from 3 different states. The host couldn't be more accommodating. He had a tent set up and ready around the campfire on the island upon arrival. He was incredibly easy to work with on arrival and departures. All of us thoroughly enjoyed using the paddle boats and canoe and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. Inside the house was excellent as well. It was clean, well maintained. The location was the perfect. We had the quiet, serene lake house, but only 5-7 miles from city conveniences. My personal favorite was the ablility to camp out on the island. For those who wanted to stay indoors, there was plenty of space for that as well. We'll definitely keep this in mind if we ever need to stay in Hot Springs again.

Easter at Fantasy Island

  • 5 of 5

We came to meet our cousin from California and we are from Mississippi. We wanted to show her how beautiful Hot Springs is. First of all the pictures need to be updated because they don't do it justice! It was dercorated very tastefully. It was very comfortable and we loved the owners. They are just good old down to earth people! We have a small dog and they did'nt mind us having him with us. The Lake was beautiful and next time we plan on renting the owners party barge and going down to Fisherman's Wharf by boat at sunset. The owners want you to have a good time and we did. Also they did'nt charge us a cleaning fee which is rare on this site. So we had more money to spend on things like the Gangster Museum and if you go to Hot Springs Arkansas dont forget to go and eat at McClards BBQ. Ive never had better bbq anywhere!!! Our cousin was very impressed with Hot Springs and she is from San Diago. We stayed 3 days and I really think a week would have been better. I really think someone with kids would love this place.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed comfortably for five nights. The rooms are big and bathrooms are LARGE! The home is well equiped and clean. We took full advantage of the beautiful lake, paddle boats, swimming and fishing from the "island." We grilled steaks and toasted marshmellows on the fire pit surrounded by tiki tourches. Even had a large group of family join us to celebrate Father's Day and there was plenty of room and fun for everyone. The owner couldn't have been more accomodating. He and his wife live on the property and are committed to making your stay enjoyable. Would highly recommend this rental.

Unbeatable hospitality and offerings

  • 5 of 5

Stayed on March 20 and 21st with a group and we had a great time. The island/peninsula was nice, having been cleared and we very much enjoyed sitting around the fire pit in the evenings. The living space was more than adequate with two great bathrooms, washer and dryer, nice kitchen, etc. The grounds were well manicured, and the dock was great to fish from. The hosts were excellent and made sure we were well taken care of, and if we needed anything or had a request, it was not a problem. For the price and the offerings, you can't beat it. Thanks Bob! I really appreciate everything you did for us. - Steve Loftin
