Why Susan Williams chose Hot Springs

Our Fish N Ski story begins with The Brodie Brothers dream in 1959. We have the original drawing from the brothers who began to design and work together on their retirement home on Lake Catherine. Unfortunately, they were not able to finish their dream. This property was left vacant and unfinished for almost 30 years. We were blessed to be able to purchase and complete this amazing property. After much thought and custom renovations we hope the brothers would appreciate The Brodie Fish N Ski Lodge as much as we have enjoyed making it special! A few of the their personal items have been used in furnishing and decorating their dream retreat.

What makes this cabin unique

Welcome to our Fish N Ski Lodge! You will find this beautiful property detailed and original! The stone and cedar exterior invites you into a warm wooden interior consisting of pecky cypress, cypress, cedar, pine, and oak. The Fish N Ski has 3 bedrooms, 2 and 1/2 baths and a bonus area with a sofa. This beautiful kitchen is fully equipped including new appliances. Our custom lodge has a log deck overlooking Lake Catherine and a boat dock. There is even a canoe and an outdoor fire pit on site for you to enjoy during your stay. You can enjoy the hot tub overlooking Lake Catherine after a full day of fun and adventure! This unique one of a kind hideaway is tucked away in a rural subdivision just 2 and 1/2 miles from Hot Springs National Park. We are convenient to downtown Hot Springs, Lake Hamilton, Garvin Woodlawn Gardens, Magic Springs and other area attractions.

We stayed at this property last weekend. It was just perfect for what we needed. We were looking for a quiet and peaceful weekend and that is just what we had. Susan is nothing short of amazing. She was very accommodating and helpful with all of our needs. She has the place stocked with things you don't even realize you are going to need. She has thought of everything. We are already planning our next trip back!

we really enjoyed our recent stay at the fish and ski cabin. Susan, the owner was very cooperative with our schedule change and special requests. She was local so that helped with recommendations and prompt service. The location was very convenient for hiking and shopping in Hot Springs. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The Fish and Ski Lodge was more than we expected. The pictures don't do it justice! It is roomy, well-furnished, and finished with all natural wood accents including a lot of artistic touches that make it very enjoyable. Handcrafted touches of fishing and skiing are everywhere. There were plenty of accessories, including all kinds of kitchen items, extra blankets, plenty of towels, and even beach towels so that you only need to bring groceries and yourself to enjoy a real weekend getaway in the quiet neighborhood. Wifi makes cellular service and music a breeze. The entire backside of the house overlooks the river and has 4 sliding glass doors allowing easy access to the both back decks, the walkways, and the side parking from the living room where you can enjoy watching Netflix while the gas fireplace keeps you warm. The house was very comfortable and clean. The outside deck with natural wood seating offers views both up and down the river from it's perch in the backyard and overlooks the extra large hot tub that was clean and ready for us. The downstairs bedrooms open up to the backyard, hot tub, and join the deck steps that lead down to a fire pit by the river where plenty of wood had been provided for our entire stay. We took the canoe that was included out for some fishing and just exploring. I am particularly grateful to our host, Susan Williams, for her professionalism and sweet personality. She was always well-mannered, very quick to respond even after-hours, and filled all of our requests to make us feel like pampered guests. It was exactly the kind of vacation that we needed. I would definitely recommend the Fish and Ski Lodge.
