  • Family Getaway

    "We selected the Ramble House for a family weekend. Our family lives throughout the US and we gathered for a weekend together. The house proved to be a wonderful gathering space. It was roomy enough for all of us to have our own space and large enough for all of us to gather for games and meals. Its location was convenient to town and John was friendly and helpful for all of our needs."

  • Condo as described!

    "Condo was as described along with the matching pictures. This is a very quite end unit, which was nice. Good lake view from patios and very well furnished."

  • Clean, quiet, and comfortable

    "We spent three wonderful days in the apartment, enjoying the views and the serenity. Everything was clean and well kept. I did notice that the unit had no thermostat, but that was not a problem during our stay. We were able to hike two terrific trails in the Ouachita Forest within a 15 minute drive and then returned for an art show and a swim in the Community Center."

  • Fantastic, well-appointed, nicely furnished, relaxing getaway in the woods

    "My wife and teenage kids, along with my parents, and four grad students spent Thanksgiving 2013 at Forest Gate. I've stayed at a number of vacation rental properties in Arkansas and Colorado for a "get away in the woods", and this was one of my favorites. When we first arrived and walked through the house for a quick tour, we were amazed by all the space and the nice furnishings. Having a separate bathroom for each bedroom was great, and balconies off of the upstairs really were a plus for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors. In contrast to many houses where we have stayed, the kitchen(s) were extremely well-stocked with cooking utensils, etc. We loved the large lot, the close proximity to the woods, and the outdoor recreation area with horseshoes, firepit, picnic tables, pond, etc. The things that I enjoyed the most were the great Yamaha baby grand piano, the huge stone fireplace in the living room, and the large master bedroom/bath. I love to get away from everything, and the combination of nice furnishings, remote location, large lot, and generous floor plan really make this place unusual. The housekeepers were also very helpful with suggestions for ATV rentals and for mailing us some items that we accidently left behind. About the only "non-standard" feature worth mentioning is the kitchen situation. There are two kitchens: a smaller one downstairs next to the living area, and a larger one upstairs with the upstairs bedrooms. Having two separate kitchens (instead of a single large one) could be good if you have multiple families or age groups that might naturally cook/eat separately (for example, it worked well for us -- my students tended to use the downstairs kitchen, while my family used the upstairs). It could also be nice to have two ovens, two refrigerators, etc. However, if you have a group that really wants to cook together and all hang out in the kitchen to socialize, you may find that this property does not support that well. In any case, the nice thing is that the downstairs dining area is large enough to accommodate 12-14 people easily, so even if you are cooking separately, you can eat together. We also had a great time on the Wolf Pen Gap ATV trails with vehicles from Black Bear ATV rentals. In summary, I highly recommend Forest Gate if you are looking for a remote location with great furnishings and connection to the outdoors. We would love to return again some time."
