About the property

1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-3

Welcome to our lake space! Whatever your desire, it works here. If you need a place to relax, bring a bottle of wine and take a sit on the deck for the week-end, or perhaps catch up on the reading, walk the boardwalk, or fish just outside the back door. Want a bit more action? Bring your boat, jet ski or kayak and have at it...large play area of lake in direct view of condo and great coves nearby to explore. Boat ramp on premises and you can tie up to boardwalk for easy access.

Our place is best described as comfortable. A place to take off your shoes and curl up on the couch...or better yet, the glider on the back deck. Retreat to a relaxing, spacious bedroom with King bed complete with TV, glider rocker and dresser. The queen-size pull-out sofa with memory foam mattress in the great room provides additional sleeping, if needed. A 40' LCD Hi-Def television, surround sound and DVD in great room for those down times. Kitchen is complete including blender, toaster, microwave and coffee pot. Just bring food!

For those wishing to escape the traffic and busyness of life, no need to go to town. Garvan Gardens is just around the bend with downtown bathhouses and Oaklawn a short drive away!

This is our personal vacation home that we rent when not being used so it is furnished and equipped better than the typical rental. Additional pictures, links to area attractions and contact info are available via our personal site. That's lakesidefun with a dot com after! We look forward to sharing with you soon!

About Owner

Greetings! We are Scott and Robin. Having used this as our personal vacation home for years, we finally moved to the area and have opened it up for you! This is our way of keeping life in the place...sharing it with others. This condo has a million dollar view. The location is just perfect. We still enjoy sitting on that deck from time to time and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why Owner chose Hot Springs

Location! The best part of lake...near Carpenter Dam and Garvin Gardens. Active enough, but not overly crowded. Space to play in the water via boat, jet ski, or kayak. Coves to investigate, wildlife to watch, and people to amuse. Close to town but easily avoided, if desired. (No need to get on Central Ave!) And quick, easy access to all that Hot Springs has to offer or communting from Little Rock...a must for those week-end retreats!

What makes this condo unique

Many options available...if activity is desired, kayaking, boating, or swimming. (Pool on-site for those who prefer or lake play right outside the back door!) For those with boats, there are several choice places to launch close by with the availability to tie-up to boardwalk close to unit. For a quieter moment, walk the boardwalk, fish from one of many prime spots or take a sit on the covered deck and 'watch' it people or wildlife. A gas grill is provided for those who can and DirecTV and DVD (player and movies) for those moments in between.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lynn and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at your nice condo. You are in a great spot; close to the city and yet, far enough away to give one that feeling of cabin-lake adventure! We had a great time with my Army buddy and his wife who reside in Mt. Ida. One of the things they did was to drive us up to the top of Mt. Hickory Nut Mountain on a forest access road...quite the adventure. Downtown H.S. speaks for itself...we loved the tradition and the setting, especially for a National Park!

Perfectly Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. The view is breathtaking, especially in the evening while the sun is setting and the view of the mountains in the background. The peaceful sound of pure nature while being so close to other condos was unbelievable. All throughout the day it was perfect. Walking the boardwalk, fishing off the dock, and grilling our own steaks on the back porch were our favorites! We visited the town of Hot Springs and loved that, as well. The condo was very well equipped with anything and everything we may have needed! Although, we brought just about everything from home just in case, the owners would’ve had us covered had we not. Robin was a pleasure to work with also. All of these things are a big plus when searching for the perfect place to stay. We would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway that is pretty close to the city, but quiet enough to find peace.

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights while in town for my daughters wedding at Garvan Gardens. The condo was great and everything we needed. Very relaxing during a stressful weekend and very convenient to Garvan Gardens. The back porch was great with a nice breeze and beautiful scenery. The kitchen is well stocked and the condo was very clean and quiet. The owners were easy to work with.

Great View and Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great Getway Place. The view couldn't be better and the place was everything we hoped. Exactly what we needed to get away for a few days from the hectic pace in Dallas. This place was clean and comfortable. Made us feel at home with coffee and waffles there to have in the morning in case you didn't make a grocery run coming in. The bed and furniture were comfortable. And, it was great to have a TV/Cable system with recording abilities to watch our favorite shows late in the evening after a day or sightseeing, horse races, or striper fishing. And, that patio and view in the morning with your coffee or your Blooody Mary in the evening can't be matched. Also, the owners were very gracious and cooperative. Would definitely come back.

Central Avenue (shopping/dining), Oaklawn Race Track, and downtown Hot Springs and bathhouses are minutes away. Magic Springs Theme Park is just a short distance and Garvan Gardens...right around the bend! Wonderful national and state parks nearby as well.

Other Activities: Shopping, Boating, Wildlife viewing, Mini golf, Kayaking, Basketball court
