"Mine, my brother's, and my sister's families along with our mother rented this property for a much needed vacation following some devastating losses. We had 15 people, including 3 teenagers, 3 kids under 10, and 1 rambunctious 3 yr old. There was more than enough room, and although not a luxurious home, Mary Lou's Lake House was just what a getaway lake house should be. It was clean and well kept. Gorgeous views from both level decks. The dock was perfect for spending a day swimming and or fishing. There was absolutely no cellular service at the property, but even the teenagers survived for 5 whole days without any outside contact! The only major problem that we had was that there is a steep staircase connecting the two floors, so I would recommend placing families with small children in the downstairs portion if only renting one section. Otherwise it was perfect for our family, and hopefully we will be able to make it a yearly trip😊"

"We had 3 families spend a week in this home, including 9 kids. The parents took the 3 rooms with the large beds and the we put the 5 girls in the extra downstairs room and the 4 boys in the extra upstairs room.
We had a few maintenance issues while we were there, but the owners were responsive - particularly with the downstairs AC unit not blowing cold. Repairman showed up the same day we called and got it fixed thankfully!
Kitchen was kind of small for a group as large as ours, but we managed. Basically we tried to limit it to one parent per family in the kitchen at a time :) Kids had a blast fishing on and around the dock. It is a small dock, I'd say you wouldn't really want more than 3 or 4 on it. The bed we slept in was firmer than my preference and seemed to be compressed on the edges so that you felt like you might roll off at any time, but I slept okay.
We were able to get everyone showered in a timely manner using all 3 bathrooms. Hot water was always available. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing without feeling cramped. We made use of the charcoal grill on 3 occasions and that was awesome.
Everything that we wanted to do in around Hot Springs was pretty close to this property, so I felt like the location was great. It was quiet. The few neighbors we did run into were nice and courteous. The place is very conducive to a relaxing vacation!"

"Gary and Cerise are amazing! The house was comfortable and had everything we needed from cooking utensils to paper plates. We had such an amazing time my teenage kids are already planning a trip back. Their response when I asked what I should write was: "the hospitality made the trip 10x's better. Listen to Gary when he says you need to try the snowballs they are great!" We could not have asked for a better experience. Anyone wanting to get away from home and not stay in a hotel should definitely stay here!"
