About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Sunroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

Unique cottage on bluff overlooking Lake Catherine, about 4 miles outside of Hot Springs, Arkansas.

Just the right size for a couple or a family of 4. Beautiful lake views from the front room, living room and deck. Lots of wild life.

The cottage consist of one bedroom and one bathroom with and additional sleeping area on the glassed in front room. There is a queen size memory foam mattress in the bedroom and a full sized futon in the front room. If you have a boy and a girl, I also have a blow up mattress just right for one or the other, just let me know.

Vaulted ceiling in combination Living room-kitchen.

Kitchen has all new cabinets, above the stove microwave, new fridge. Pots, pans and dishes included to make sure you can cook your own meals. I have also included a coffee pot and toaster.

The bathroom is accessed through the master bedroom. Please be aware of this, as it may be a problem with more than a couple staying.

This is one of the most restful places I have ever lived. The road is off the beaten trail, and only the few neighbors will drive by.

The deck is wonderful, nice place to sit and enjoy the sunrise, a nice drink and beautiful lake views.

Really not a good place to swim unless you are adventurous. You can walk down to the lake on public access steps, but, it is a steep climb up, and there is NO BEACH or DOCK just a bank. VERY STEEP climb. There is a public water access just up the road where you can launch a boat or fish. Water can be very cold here since it comes from below the dam up stream. There is off the road parking at the back of the house, several steps up to the parking area.

About Melanie

I love to travel and am excited to offer my home to others who love to travel. I have lived in Hot Springs since 1987.

Melanie purchased this cabin in 1992

Why Melanie chose Arkansas

I purchased this home in 1992, I lived there full time for awhile and now use it as a getaway spot. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

What makes this cabin unique

It is so peaceful and quiet here on Lake Catherine. I love hanging out on the deck and relaxing with my friends and family.

Very close to Hot Springs, and all its attractions. You can chose to do as much or as little as you want. About 2.5 miles from the Bypass, so you can be anywhere in Hot Springs in just minutes.

Not secluded, but quiet.

  • 3 of 5

Pretty small cabin in a neighborhood of cabins that are about 30 yards from each other. Nice, but I've stayed in much better places for this price. Outdoor lighting was in disrepair and we had a difficult time getting our luggage down the walkway in the dark. There were dirty rags left in the shower, and the bed was obviously very used.

Owner's Response: No excuse for the rags in the shower! I am sorry they were left there accidentally after cleaning. Future renters, please see the picture of the parking space on top of the hill. It is not an easy access to the cabin with luggage, I must agree.

Cozy Place, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a very enjoyable weekend here. The cottage was very conveniently located to get to downtown Hot Springs and Hot Springs National Park, where we spent most of our time, but it was still secluded enough to get plenty of peace and quiet in the evenings, which we greatly enjoyed.

My wife and I feel very fortunate to have found this place. The decor, cleanliness and comfortable furnishings show that Melanie really loves this cabin. The location is perfect for all Hot Springs activities. We look forward to visiting again and exploring more of the area.

Very cozy with wonderful views!

  • 4 of 5

This is such a nice little cabin! We loved the view of Lake Catherine from the deck (nice deck to sit outside), and it's the perfect size for two people (or a family with kids). It's definitely older but that gives it some charm I think. Super comfy bed and our dogs loved the red chair with the fleece blanket...I think they got more use out of that chair than we did! It's nice because it's kind of secluded but still easy to get into town, although the caveat there is there's not great cell service...I'm not big on web surfing when on vacation though so that wasn't a big deal. There is cable TV if you want to veg out. The nearby cafes were delicious too. Oh, and Melanie was very responsive if I had a question and she even called me on Sunday to let me know the cabin was ready early whenever we wanted to check in. How cool is that! Thanks for everything!

Great spot to stay

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place to stay. I loved the view of the Ouachita river and sunrise was beautiful. We were lucky to see a buck pass through one morning. Cottage is very comfortable, clean and lots of windows. We loved our stay! Owner was wonderful too!
