It features spacious and comfortable accommodations for up to eight people in a 1600+ square foot, split floor plan, with four bedrooms, two baths, with a 2 car garage. The living room and 3 bedrooms are carpeted and there are beautiful laminate wood floors in the dining/family room area. The fourth bedroom/bonus room off the garage has an outside entrance as well as garage entrance. It's a great place for older children/teens with it's 'bunk room' atmosphere. The well-appointed kitchen and dining area offer a view of the forest through a window wall beneath the vaulted ceiling.

The location is ideal for those wanting easy access and a short drive time to all Village amenities, including golf courses, fitness center, trail systems, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis center and 12 beautiful lakes! DeSoto Golf Course is 3 minutes away and the DeSoto Trail System, Lake DeSoto, DeSoto Rec Center and the Marina are adjacent to the course. The DeSoto Trail follows the shoreline of Lake DeSoto and offers bikers, joggers and walking enthusiasts everything they could ask for...hard surface trails and the fabulous beauty of the Ouachita Forests. Along the way you may see deer, a red-tailed hawk, a turtle or two and lots of wildflowers. You may hear an owl and much conversation among birds in the canopy above. We are 'dog friendly' and we will warmly welcome your canine travel companion, providing he/she has good house manners. Stay for a couple of nights, or a week or more……. you’ll be glad you came!
Hot Springs Village is America's largest gated community and is a wonderful place to vacation or live, with spectacular scenery, moderate climate, warm and friendly people, relaxed and casual lifestyle and some of the best golf, boating and recreational opportunities you’ll find anywhere! Hot Springs Village and neighboring Hot Springs (just 20 minutes away!), also offer great restaurants, live music/concerts, art galleries and events, botanical gardens, horse racing at Oaklawn, family fun at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls and lots of shopping! Lake Ouachita State Park and Marina is just 20 minutes from the Village West Gate. The lake, dubbed “Arkansas’ Ocean”, is 50 miles long with over 200 islands for picnicking and relaxing…….. it is a vacation paradise for those who love boating and fishing, kayaking and scuba diving. In a nutshell... the Village and surrounding area is “the whole package”, a great vacation destination or lifestyle choice for retirees or an entire family!

I took my mom, a cousin, and 5 of my aunts to Hot Springs to celebrate moms 70th bday and everyone loved the house. It was clean upon arrival and more than enough space for us all. The owners are awesome people and extremely nice. I recommend this place!!

We stayed here during our search for a home in Hot Springs Village which turned out to be 3 months from 12/1/13 to 3/1/14. We couldn't have picked a better place. Donna provided all the kitchen necessities as all our household goods were in storage. Great grill and deck even though we were only able to use it a couple times. The two living areas were nice as well as the 2 baths, even though it was just the two of us. Highly recommend this rental.

Owner response: Charlotte, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Tranquility Cottage and that you had the conveniences of home without having to unpack any of your own things during this transition time for you. We appreciate you for treating it as if it were your own home. We wish you the best on your new move!
The start of a Thanksgiving tradition
The start of a Thanksgiving tradition
We chose this home for many reasons, but mainly it's halfway between our house and our daughter's. The area is beautiful, the home was clean and spacious and the entire trip was relaxing and enjoyable. Our group included six adults, one four-yr.-old, and three cars. We brought our dogs as well, and there was plenty of room for everyone! We were able to cook our Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen - my son grilled a turkey breast outside on the deck. We took a lot of walks throughout the neighborhood and enjoyed the gorgeous views and beautiful fall colors we saw. All of my family agreed that we want to come back to this home each year for our holiday. Thank you, Donna Southerland, for answering all my questions and for being so gracious. Your home is beautiful and accommodating, and we can't wait to go back!

We had a great stay at Tranquility Cottage...amenities were great and everything from the new gas grill to the quiet neighborhood to the wonderful woods in the backyard to the interior decor, were outstanding. We went into Hot Springs and had lunch at the Arlington Hotel on the porch. Lots of great shops too and the National Park was amazing (147 degree water temp!) The DeSoto pool back at the Village was fun. The home was very comfortable and a great deal! We hope to be back next Spring!

Owner response: James, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Tranquility Cottage! Your wife is a lucky lady having you make her a fresh lobster and grilling for her as well, especially while on vacation!!! It was nice visiting with you about your young children and glad they had plenty of things to do while in the Village. We look forward to future visits with you and your family!
Two families with teenagers stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time together enjoying all the activities in the area. The house has everything you will need. The house is close to everything or just a short drive away. Went to Buckstaff bath house for a massage and bath. Evening kayaking at Lake Quachita was awesome. Be sure to visit Maxwell Blades magic show too. After a busy day it was so nice to come back to Tranquility and unwind. The owner Donna is quick to respond to all of our needs. Great to work with. When we return to Hot Springs, we will definitely stay here.

Owner response: Kari, It sounds like you found plenty of fun things to do! We are so glad you enjoyed Tranquility Cottage! The fact that there are plenty of things to do in the Village along with the fact that it's close to the west gate making it easy and quick to do activities outside of the Village is really a plus. We hope to see you in the future!
We stayed in this property for 3 nights on a guys getaway golf weekend to Hot Springs Village. The house was perfect for us. There were 8 of us staying there and we had no trouble with room. All 8 of us had our own place to sleep (which is very rare by the way) between the 5 actual beds and the 4 futons that fold down into beds. I slept on one of the futons and the futons are actually very comfortable and sleep very well! The house has a lot of ammenities included that you don't have to take with you, which is very nice. Plenty of towels, sheets, blankets, everything needed for coffee, nice outdoor gas grill, dish washer, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, etc etc. It was helpful to not have to take a lot of that kind of stuff with us from home since owner told us it was fully stocked and to use whatever we needed. Nice touch and much appreciated! The owner was very easy to work with and very helpful with information as to what to expect, what was there for use, detailed instructions about check in/out procedures, etc. We will be back again next year! Thanks again!

The Name Of This Rental Says It All!
We had a wonderful experience from the start when renting this condo. The owner (Donna) was so pleasant to work with. She went the extra mile to make sure our stay was all we expected. The home is in a good location. The furnishings are very nice and comfortable. The layout of the home is great (having two living room areas makes for happy times had by all). The fitness faculities at the Coronado Rec Center are top-notch. I brought my bike and rode the nature trails everyday that the weather permitted, which was so fun. We had a very relaxing vacation and would not hesitate about going back if the occasion would arise for us again. Thank you for our stay and God bless you!

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Randy and I were both born and raised in Texas. We have 2 boys and 2 girls, three of whom are now married. We welcomed our first grandchild in August, 2013. Yay! We are self-employed, which gives us the ability to travel more than we used to. Until 2007 I was a counselor at a middle school and Randy worked as a general manager for a steel company before we became self-employed. Around 2005 we became time-share owners with Escapes in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. We absolutely fell in love with the mountains and scenery in Hot Springs Village and ended up buying our second home here in April 2007. We have never regretted it!
Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs Village:
This is a place where we can totally relax with family and friends. We bring our parents up here in the fall and spring to see the beautiful foliage. Randy loves golfing, so with 9 golf courses to choose from, he’s always happy when here. In the fall and the spring of each year he brings up a group of his golf buddies and they play every day and eat at restaurants at the golf courses or just outside the west gate area. I bring my friends for a girls’ retreat and we rent a boat either at Balboa or in Hot Springs on Lake Hamilton. We shop in Hot Springs and find hiking trails to walk on in the Village.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There are so many different things to do that are within 30 minutes of our house that we never get bored. Having a 26,000-acre gated community with 9 golf courses and 12 lakes along with many other amenities is very appealing to us. Our home in the Village is called ‘Tranquility’ for a reason---it is our refuge from our busy lives in Texas!
