About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-16)

You will rarely find a house as nice as this for rent. This house sits on Lake Estrella, a small (25 acre) lake with 210 feet of lake frontage. At this time there are only a few other houses on the lake, so it is very quiet and has spectacular views. The house was designed with lots of large windows for an open and airy feel and to allow every opportunity to enjoy the magnificent views.

This charming house. on a lake. in the woods is our vacation home and is decorated like a REAL home not a rental property. The linens are good quality as are the furniture and furnishings. We want you to have a lovely, comfortable vacation and hope that you will be respectful and appreciative of our home. It is a very nice place and we work hard to cultivate good feelings and happy times there.

The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. It is set up to sleep nine comfortably. There is a California king in the master bedroom, there are queen beds in each of the other three bedrooms and one of the bedrooms has an additional twin bed. There is enough room in two of the bedrooms to sleep children on the floor in sleeping bags or on queen sized blow-up mattresses on the floor if you wish to bring them.

The living room has three large comfy couches. The great room, that incorporates the kitchen, will probably be where you spend most of your time. A 42-inch wide screen television with DVD/VCR and lots of comfortable seating in the great room (you can steal all the pillows off of the couches in the living room to set up an even comfier spot to watch movies on the floor). There are VCR equipped TVs in each of the bedrooms as well(master bedroom has DVD/VCR).

The great room television as well as two of the bedroom TVs are wired with Direct TV. There is a fairly extensive video collection (shelved in the den) for your use, as well as some best sellers if you prefer to curl up with a book.

The deck at the back of the house is 78 feet long (runs the entire length of the back of the house). There is a table and chairs so you may eat al fresco and lots of seating so you can sit out and enjoy the peaceful evenings. We also have a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer, iron and ironing board as well as a chest freezer if you prefer to bring all your own food and stay for a month.

The house is in beautiful Hot Springs Village, a gated community, with eight public golf courses and one private. The private course, Diamante, is only seconds away from the house, as are two of the Village's other great golf courses. Two of the golf courses were ranked in the top 100 in the country by Golf Digest and five of them were in the top ten for the state of Arkansas. The house is within a few steps of the second hole on the Granada course. The greens fees are very reasonable.

The Village is also peppered with 11 lakes, some large enough for motorized boats and waterskiing. Others, like ours, are smaller and more intimate, good for fishing, swimming and small boats. There are pools within the village as well as public (free access) beaches. There are tennis courts and miles of walking and bicycling paths.

The village has all sorts of amenities including a workout facility, massages, theatre programs and festivals. There are frequently weekend garage sales and church sales for those of you looking to bargain hurt. For those of you who enjoy a nice drive there are all sorts of spectacular roads both inside and outside of the village. If you are interested in day tours, let us know and we can make some suggestions for some of the scenic routes that we've taken.

The house is easy to find. It is now visable on mapquest and google maps, I can email you a map to help you to get your bearings once you are confirmed. I'm sorry we do not give exact location to prospective renters for security reasons and we NEVER allow 'drive-bys' to 'check out' the house. From the Village's East entrance, off of Route 5, it is just a short two mile drive in to the house. It is roughly 12 miles into the town of Hot Springs and a magnificent, scenic 12-mile ride from the town of Benton (Highway 30 and Route 5 - exit 117). Drive across the village and out the front gate (west) and the Ouachita National Forest is ten minutes away.


A $500. deposit is required to hold the dates and confirm that they are yours, at that time only will the dates be blocked on the availability calendar. We will not hold dates even for 24 hours without a deposit. March through May it gets a bit crazy with dozens of inquiries a day so we have to stick to our rule 'first deposit in gets it'.

In the event that you need to cancel, the initial deposit will only be fully refunded if we are able to re-rent your dates to someone else. If we are unable to re-rent for those days you will forfeit your entire deposit. If we re-rent then you will get your entire deposit back. If you cancel after the rental packet has already gone out you will forfeit the entire amount of your rental.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Two hard working individuals that some day hope to retire to a warmer climate.

Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs Village, AR, USA:
We were invited down for a time share presentation in another area of the Village and found out during our stay that they had opened up another area for development. We loved the area and the people and the price was right. We have had fun investigating the surrounding roads and area and visiting Hot Springs spas and downtown shopping district. The people down there couldn't be nicer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
the perfect place to escape the cold winters of Chicago. We feel the house is warm and welcoming and we are able to go there to detox and de-stress and get away from the harsh realities of life in a big city. It is amazing to have a lake in your back yard that you can throw a kayak in or walk out and bob along on a floaty. The deck is our favorite room of the house and we love to hang out there to eat, read or watch the wildlife. With so few other houses we feel like it is our own lake.
