"This property was perfect for the needs of two grandmothers, one mother, and two excited little girls. We had more than enough room to spread out, and the kitchen was well equipped. Everything was tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. I found the owners to be easy to communicate with and very concerned with our satisfaction. The children were delighted to find the game closet and the adults enjoyed the views and the lovely area. Rebecca had anticipated all of the questions that anyone could think of and left a notebook filled with restaurant menus, emergency info and tips and maps about the area. The first day we were there, a neighbor dropped by on Rebecca's behalf and offered his name and phone number in case we needed anything. It felt like going home. Stay here if you find yourself in the area. It is a lovely getaway."

"We had six adults and three toddlers--ages 1,2,and 3, at this fabulous home! There was plenty of room for everyone to feel comfortable and have their own space. The Arkansas room was super: it was a playroom and tv room. Then the large living room provided another entertainment area. The kids and grandkids fished off the boat dock, and even caught a couple little fish! The home was well-positioned in the village to go east to Lake Balboa (for pontoon boats) and west out to Hot Springs and restaurants near the west gate. There were plenty of towels, dishes, and supplies to make one feel at home.
Gary was a most gracious host, providing answers to questions and being so easy to get in touch with. We would highly recommend this home to large families for reunions and family vacations."

"We stayed in this half of a duplex for four nights while attending a family gathering about 1.5 miles away. It worked well for the two of us, both seniors. The property appears to be one of the older residences in Hot Springs Village, which began in the 1970's. Much of the décor and some of the furniture dates back to that era. The place was very clean, the kitchen fairly well equipped, although some of the furniture was rather worn. Lighting in the front bedroom was very minimal and only a little better in the living room. The king bed in the front bedroom was in good condition. We did not have an occasion to try the queen bed adjacent to the deck. The dining table was abnormally high, with four chairs of matching height. Regular height chairs cannot be used with it. (Unless as an adult you want to experience being three years ago, when your chin was barely above the table when sitting in a "big-people" chair!)
The owner will not come in unless the renter is there. While this respect for privacy is admirable, it can be inconvenient when a minor repair is needed. The Wi-Fi was experiencing brief interruptions the whole time we were there. Most of the time we could live with them, which we did for the whole stay. The owner would have attempted to trouble-shoot the system if we had been there during the day. But we were not!
There are 63 steps down to the dock. There is a handrail virtually all the way down. The hill is relatively steep, with the slope continuing into the water. Thus young children would need to be carefully supervised. If you have a small boat, check with the owner about rules. There is a launch site close by. Pontoon boats are very appropriate for this lake, but are not available for rental. There is a beach elsewhere on the lake. Swimming in this small bay requires good skills as it gets deep quickly.
There are several gates to HSV, but only two usable for visitors. These are the east gate off highway 5 and the main gate, or west gate, off highway 7. Most shopping and restaurants are at the west gate. This property is a few miles from the west gate, and a much longer distance from the east gate."
