  • Perfect for our Family Get Together

    "We have 24 in our family that gets together every year. This was so perfect for our family. Everyone was so pleased with everything from the beds to the kitchens and outside. We had the best time and being able to all get together in the Main house for meals and playing games. Plenty of towels and blankets for those that can not handel the cold that a few of us have to have.........Thank you Connie for opening your place for us to rent. Connie is so easy to work with."

  • 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."

  • Perfect weekend!

    "My siblings and I had not gotten together for many years and were in search or a property that fit us. We had people traveling from Austin, TX, Waco, TX, Nashville, TN, and even Los Angeles. Arkansas seemed like good middle ground and after searching over the available properties we settled on this one. The combination if price/size/amenities was great and we are very glad we chose this property. The financials were straight forward and I promptly received the security deposit once things were clears by Tom (the property manager). There were plenty of rooms and places to sleep to where all of our siblings and their little ones had their own space to themselves. Even with our large group the three bathrooms worked great. Also, the AC was awesome and we were always cool in the house. Check in was painless and Tom met me to show me around and give me the basic run down. Since we were such a big group we cooked all our meals at the house which worked out perfect. They have pretty much everything we needed from pot/pans/flatware/cups/blender etc. they even had some spices that came in handy (they just ask you replace something if you use it all). The large dinner table was great and accommodated our whole group so we could enjoy each other company during meals. The home is directly on lake Hamilton which was great swimming for the kiddos and for relaxing with some cold beer for the adults. I will say the lake is very deep even just off the bank. That being said, we brought floats so it worked perfect. There is a fence with a gate up closer to the home to keep the kiddos away from the water so that calmed the parents worries. We were a short 10 min drive from downtown Hot Springs were we went to some shops and saw the bath houses. We also went to the Nat'l park where we hiked up the big hill. The family that came in from LA had about an hour drive from the Little Rock airport since no flights came into the small airport in Hot Springs. I accidentally left an expensive watch in the room where I stayed and I promptly notified Tom. Tom found it and mailed it back to me without hesitation and paid for the shipping even after I offered to pay. All in all the stay was ideal and all parties that joined us felt the same. We had a great time and look forward to possibly making this a annual or biannual tradition. Thanks Tom!"
