About Sherri or Sally Williamson

My name is Sally Williamson. I am the property manager for Serenity Escape Vacation Rentals! I graduated in Spring 2012 from the University of Arkansas with a Bachelor of Science degree and in Spring 2015 from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences with a degree in Medical Laboratory Sciences. I was born and raised here in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Along with property management, I also operate a wedding venue. I would love the opportunity to book your stay here in the beautiful Hot Springs!

Sherri or Sally Williamson purchased this house in 2012

Why Sherri or Sally Williamson chose Arkansas

My family has owned this piece of land for 70 years! My great grandparents, grandparents, parents, and I have all lived on this property at some point in our lives. This beautiful piece of property is very special to us and we enjoy the opportunity to allow others to make their own memories with their families as well. This particular home was built in 2000 by my father for my grandparents. We have spent many days and nights spending time together on the back deck that overlooks the lake. My favorite part of the deck is that even on the hottest of days it always seems to have a breeze blowing by.

What makes this house unique

One of the great features of this house is the back deck that overlooks the lake. No matter how hot it may be, there is always a breeze on this deck! It is a great place to congregate with family or friends. It is also wonderful for enjoying peaceful time by yourself reading a book or just admiring the great view. Another unique benefit is that the house has a secluded feel, but it is also a very convenient location. It is about 3 minutes from Hot Springs' main road yet feels very private.

A great place to hang out with friends

  • 5 of 5

The property was delightful. I am part of a seven (7) member group of guys that get together every spring at Lake Hamilton. We used to stay, all 7 of us, in a two bedroom condo. Well, it was my turn to secure the lodging and I did through VRBO. The house was the best decision we have made. All of the guys loved it and are looking forward to leasing it again next year. What a wonderful property in a great place on the lake.

This property is clean, nice, and as advirtised.

  • 4 of 5

This property is close to central avenue and the highway for easy access to downtown or to the racetrack. It is clean and well kept. The deck is very large and beautiful with dock very close. We have stayed here 2 years in a row and it works very well for us.

Great spot for family

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family (9 of us) stayed here in the run up to my wedding. It is in a great location, close to the town and yet still having the tranquility of the lake. The house overlooks the lake and Garvan gardens and is so spacious. My nieces and nephews (3 all under the age of 4) all stayed with us and the house is spacious enough to accommodate a large group, especially if you have little ones running around. Furnished beautifully inside and out, including the use of the boat dock. This property holds so many precious memories for me and my family and it was a week that was unforgettable. The owners were really helpful with our booking and they left really helpful instructions in the property. Also a nice extra was that the kitchen was well stocked with basics like salt, foil etc.

My personal favourites about the property:

The view is unrivalled on the lake in my opinion, the cove that the property sits in overlooks the gardens which means you don't overlook other people's property.

The deck has fans and lots of chairs to sit out and enjoy the sun and breeze of the lake

Lots of space- I can't stress this enough, the house is very accommodating for a large group!!

Disabled friendly!!! My father has limited mobility and requires a wheelchair for the majority of the time. This property has ramps and enough space, inside and out on the deck. We even managed to get my dad to the boat dock with a little help from the guys in my family.

I hope that one day I have the opportunity to gather all my family back to Hot Springs (we live in England) and if so I will definitely be booking to stay at this property!!!! Beautiful lake house

This property is AWESOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

October 7 - 11, 2015. Our group was a group of 4 couples (all new seniors!) that get together once a year at a different location to spend time together, visit, and of course, party!!! We loved everything about this house. The property was very clean, well kept, and was just as it was described. It was arranged really well and had lots of amenities - the main one being all of the spices in the kitchen, staples in the refrigerator, coffee, creamer, sweetners - you name it! Just check when you get there as to what you might need to purchase. The upstairs bath was a little too small for adults, but would probably work for kids. The deck out back was a great place to have a cold beverage and visit, or just enjoy some quiet time. We rented a pontoon boat one day and toured Lake Hamilton and really enjoyed seeing the beautiful homes built on the lake. Our group had a great time and as always we hated to leave. Anyone of us would highly recommend staying at this property, and if in the future we choose Hot Springs for our reunion, this is the home we would chose. HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week with the whole family in this Lake House. We had lots of fun. The house is spacious and very convenient. It has all of cooking utensils and equipment. Location is great and not far from shopping center, grocery store and Marina. Our host Sally recommended Hot Springs Marina where we rented a Pontoon boat and reached the house on the lake in a few minutes. we did not need to tow it. The only negative experience was the hot weather in August. We could not sit too long outside to enjoy the view, only briefly.

We would not hesitate to go back any time soon.

Sally, Thanks for your hospitality.
