Wonderful relaxing stay!

We enjoyed our mini-vacation to Hot Springs! The cabin was clean, and it had a beautiful view of the lake. I highly recommend this property and hope to return to it soon.

Perfect for couples or small family wanting a peaceful weekend (especially for the price)!

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a volleyball tournament which was also a race weekend, so most hotels were at max capacity. VRBO was easy and thorough. The location of the condo was right off the main roads so it was close to everything yet provided plenty of privacy. There is a kitchen, small dinette, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. Amenities are modern and functional. The air/heating unit was a little temperamental, but aside from that, it was perfect. We would recommend it and will stay here again another time.

Very nice and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We went for a short get away and this place was just what we needed. My 3yr old son as well, as myself, enjoyed the Huge pool, (which was very clean). For me you cannot beat the location. Beautiful view covered parking and not far from anything that you would need.

The apartment was very clean as well maintained.

I highly recommend this place.

Wonderful cottage; great location!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful. The complex was quiet and peaceful. My daughter and sister loved the pool. The view of the lake was awesome. It was close to downtown Hot Springs, shopping, restaurants, but not too close. I went crystal digging and left crystals in the cottage for someone else to take and enjoy. I would rent this property again and recommend it to others.

Brokenhearted and disappointed. Spoke to Mr. Hughes prior to booking. Explained recovering from major leg/ankle surgery. Looking for a place with easy access to water for an extended week-end to fish and let the dog swim. His words, "Just the place for you, Take 2 steps off the porch, count 40 steps, put your had on the button and cast". On the way to the cottage, we purchased ARK. fishing license and bait. Only to discover we had been deceived. The unit is downstairs. You have 12 STEEP steps to tackle before you reach the ground level (We had to rig up a pulley system with the dogs leash just to get the luggage down. ) When we reached the cottage door be were dismayed to find out , true there were 2 steps, but in front of the cottage was a steep hill, then a large grass lawn before you saw the fenced in waterfront. The access was 1 cottage down, 26 STEEP steps down the hillside and at least 200-300 ft to the fenced waterfront. The swim area was an opening to a swim deck in 10 feet water (how was the dog to get back up on this). Prior to lugging the fishing equipment down all this, my husband tried it once, he made it down but could not come back up, he had to walk around the lakeside at an angle to get back up. Needless to say we never got to fish. Even if you drove down to the back of the complex, the only option was to fish over the fence and in the hot sun., We did try the pool area- It to was up and down an extremely steep but winding hill. The cottage itself is cute and well kept. Well worth the price. Close to attractions and shopping. But it you're not in good physical shape, this is not the place for you. Just wished he had been honest in describing this property. First major trip since a horrific accident and the inaccessibility ruined it. Couldn't fish, let the dog swim and he had to limit how many times he could go up and down those STEEP steps . A wasted use of vacation time and money.
