This beautiful, very private apartment retreat, with separate outside entrance, is located on the walkout level of our hillside home on a quiet, less traveled, canopied lane in Hot Springs Village. It is just the place for one or two adults to relax and enjoy the wonders of nature that abound here! Take the “wooden walkway” at forest's edge, to this special place, where the sounds of the woods and stream below offer serenity and peace for your special vacation. The apartment features a lovely Arkansas room, overlooking the mountain stream below; living area with adjacent efficiency kitchen and soft, comfortable recliners for reading and relaxing. The king sized bedroom and bath are spacious and well appointed. The covered lanai, off both bedroom and Arkansas room, provide for comfortable and private outdoor living, year around. There is a lower deck, closer to streamside, accessible by forest path and wooden steps, set into the hillside. If you’re surefooted and are up for the trek, this deck is a wonderful place to really “feel” the forest, listen to the birds and watch the wildlife all around. You might even get a glimpse of a deer family frolicking in the stream or see a beautiful red fox! Forest Glen apartment is beautifully furnished with antiques, textiles and collectibles obtained from our visits to Thailand, Asia and Indonesia, along with original art and prints collected over many years. The location is ideal for those wanting easy access to all Village amenities, including golf courses, fitness center, trail systems, tennis center and 12 beautiful lakes! Mano Way is a great place to take a “walk with nature” as it loops around thru the forest and back to your starting point…. exactly a mile in length. Along the way you may see deer, a red-tailed hawk, a turtle or two and lots of wildflowers. You may hear an owl and much conversation among birds in the canopy above. We are "dog friendly" and we will warmly welcome your canine travel companion, providing he/she has good house manners. A small pet fee is required. Stay for a few days or more…. You’ll be glad you came!
If you will be traveling with friends, be sure to check out our Sunny Oaks Casita studio (VRBO property #254539), another wonderful oasis in the forest that is easily accessible from Forest Glen, yet with it's own covered outdoor living and private entrance, on the opposite side of the house from the Lanai apartment. The Casita is a one bedroom studio apartment featuring queen bed; an efficiency kitchen; comfortable sitting area and 3/4 bath. When joined, the two apts. will comfortably accommodate four adults. In addition, we have Writer's Den (VRBO property #1051610), a separate, small guest bedroom suite on the main level of the house. It can accommodate one adult traveling with guests staying in Sunny Oaks and/or Forest Glen.
