Hot Springs house description

----------------------------------------------------
Just think, 2 miles from the heart of the city, and yet you are the only house on the road! No houses on either side of you, Across the road is the National forest and 1000 acres of woods and trails that take you anywhere around the city or even a lake or cave. 32 foot in ground private swimming pool, Big Jacuzzi Tub, Big lawn, 3 bedrooms, living room- plus peace and quiet. Woods and trees in all directions. Fenced front lawn ideal for small humans or pets.

If you want more than pictures go to you tube type in 1000 acres hot springs and watch the 7 minute Steadicam walk through video tour. Experience the peacefulness, NEW - Video link/tab at the top of this page.

Enjoy the tranquility of this lovely, newly remodeled vacation home . Enjoy the beauty of being nestled in the National Forest with all the modern conveniences you desire. With scenic serenity and easy access to the sights, you get the best of both worlds. Property is just a little under 2 miles away from historic downtown Hot Springs (2.3 miles from Convention center-4.5 miles to the Oaklawn Race Track)and bordering the lush shade of the National Park. Trail 200 feet from the property connects with the 10 mile Sunset trail that snakes its way around the outskirts of downtown- (and to downtown if you like to walk). A reservior lake is a 35 minute hike. A cave is a 50 minute hike. 20 minute ridge top hike too.

Enjoy the short but scenic drive a few minutes down a winding road to Gulpha Gorge National Park camp ground and recreation area. If it's thrills you seek, Magic Springs Amusement Park is less than a 10 minute drive from your door, and it's 25 minutes to the sun and sailing of sparkling Lake Ouachita-3rd cleanest lake in the country- They rent motor boats for $55 for a 1/2 day .

At night, since we have no street lights, Its dark enough and secluded enough to actually see the stars, constellations.

Children will enjoy swimming in your own in-ground 32 ft pool (6.5 ft deep in center) or playing croquet, hide and seek or Frisbee in the idyllic backyard. Take a walk in on the winding roads or trails, and you will appreciate the convenience of being close to local restaurants, spa treatments, Mid-America Science Museum, Oaklawn Race Course, Lakes Ouachita and Hamilton and much more.

Note- This is the only vacation rental close to the city that is secluded and borders the National park. The slow road has about 10 cars driving on it per day so its a great road for kids playing or on bikes

Spend some time warming up after a swim with the wood-burning fireplace or melting away sore muscles in the over sized Jacuzzi bath.

If you need to stay connected to the outside, we offer free wireless internet connection and a computer. The house has central heat and air conditioning for your comfort.

Mountain Bike supplied for biking on the mountain trails- Just ask. Carport and plenty of safe parking

Basketball, Croquet, Badminton, Foosball, Volleyball, Horseshoes, swimming,ping pong, teather ball, hiking

Come enjoy the relaxation and rejuvenation of the Natural State!

Close to Historic Downtown with Bathhouse Row, Josephine Tussuad's Wax Museum, Hot Springs National Park museum, restaurants, spas and shopping. Lots to see and do. Tip- Go to youtube and type in secret cave hot springs or secret pond hot springs, These are little know and about 1 mile away and the videos have directions from the house.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Annie and John Cooksey met at church camp and 1985 and fell in love a year later. We have been married for 18 years. John is a video producer and owner of EliteVideo dot com a video training company, Annie homeschools but years back she was 'Sparkle the letter clown' for the PBS series 'The Letter People' We moved from Connecticut in 1991 for the nicer climate, frest air and friendly people.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
                  We have had success with our first vacation rental here in town and we were looking along time for a secluded private house with a nice yard and plenty of parking that was also close to downtown. When we found this house bordering on the National park with trails 200 feet away and no houses on either side of it, we knew this would be the one.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Quiet and peaceful. Secluded. Hiking and the pool. Nice level yard. Very Close to the historic downtown. 1 mile from Park Island Market and Park Ave Bistro. No charge for mountain bikes (s) National Park Trails across the street. Very quiet. Fenced back Yard. Privacy. No street lights, and almost no traffic, give you that camping feeling of yesteryear.
