About linda and charlie

My husband and I have been renovating homes for decades and he is a retired master carpenter and i a retired real estate broker so we have a real feel for great properties and had a eye on this one for years before it came on the market. We wanted a home on a lake with mountain views, with a country feel but all the amenities of a resort and found it in Hot Springs Village. We are hikers and especially love fall hiking here in the village and the surrounding areas. You will find us on the lake either in a hobie cat or on a windsurfer or swimming most any summer day. Winter hiking is great here. The terrain is really interesting without the foliage. We love the availability of having 9 golf courses to chose from within minutes of our home and you can play year round here.

linda and charlie purchased this house in 2012

Why linda and charlie chose Arkansas

We decided to purchase this property because we live on Lake Desoto ourselves and thought it would be great to invest in a house that we could share with others so that they too might enjoy Hot Springs Village and the amenities that go with living here. The home has a slightly rustic interior which gives it a cabin feel. The setting is very quiet and peaceful.

What makes this house unique

Lake Desoto has wonderful mountain views and is great for water sports, such as swimming,fishing, windsurfing,boating,and skiing.

Some of my most favorite hiking trails are just minutes from this house.

Close to the front gate where you can easily find Walmart,restaurants, and easy access to Hot Springs.

all 8 golf courses are from 5 minutes to 15 minutes away.

Lake Desoto has a sandy beach,and a marina.

The fitness center here in Hot Springs Village is superb, there is up to date equipment, many fitness classes such as yoga,Pilates, step,aquatic classes, and spinning classes.

There are tennis courts and outdoor pool and restaurants within minutes of the home.

We love the huge treed level lot surrounded on two sides by Lake Desoto, the inside of the house with its vaulted wooded ceiling, natural stone fireplace, and open floor plan the screened in porch looking out at the mountains and the lake. Easy steps going downstairs to the large den and 2 bedrooms the walkout patio with its redwood arbor. The previous owners were railroad people and placed railroad lights at the entrance to the property and planted trees on both sides of the long driveway going to the property. They clearly had a well thought out vision when they designed and built this lovely property.

Beautiful, peaceful home in a beautiful, quiet area

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home on the lake that provided us with a awesome weekend getaway with a beautiful view. A group of 6 of us stayed for a long weekend and were very pleased with our choice in this property. Everything is provided as described and house was very clean and well kept. We spent our days doing activities in Hot Springs and retreated here in the afternoons for nice relaxing cookouts and enjoying the outdoors! We plan to return for sure!

Pictures don't do this property justice!

  • 5 of 5

Our overall stay was wonderful. The home was beautiful, incredibly spacious, and had all the amenities we could ask for. Sitting on the screened in porch, sipping coffee, and enjoying the beautiful lake view was our favorite part. The private dock and kayaks were an added bonus for us as well. Charlie and Linda were very easy to work with and have every bit of information for the home and the area available for you when you walk in the door. I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a nice quiet retreat.

Spacious lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Charlie were very helpful and quick to respond. The home was exceptionally clean and the ac worked great! The bed and sheets were very comfortable ensuring we woke up refreshed and ready for the day! The kayaks were my favorite part, we didn't get to the paddleboat, ping pong or cornhole but how great that they were there should we have wanted. I also wish we would've checked out The Waypoint at Desoto. It was a quick kayak across the lake and we could see a nice deck with plenty of umbrella sheltered tables and live music.

The space in this home allows for a group to still have some privacy and room to relax or have a couple different activities going at once. The enclosed porch is where we found ourselves every morning sipping coffee and staring out at the lake.

If you're unfamiliar with Hot Springs, the Village is approx 20-25 mins from downtown Hot Springs. There is a Walmart, Walgreens and several dining and grocery options within a mile or so which was a welcome convenience. Do not anticipate being able to utilize Uber or a taxi service from The Village however. We had planned one evening to Uber/taxi into downtown so we could have some cocktails at Ohio Club and take one back. Uber had no drivers in the area after two hours of attempting and the taxi service in the area charged $45 just to get to the gate of The Village. Saying that we had just as much fun coming back to the house and mixing drinks ourselves and playing games. Will definitely return and would absolutely stay here again!

Great Lake front home!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in a few houses in the village, and this was our best experience so far! Linda was so helpful to make sure we had all we needed for our stay. The house is on a quiet inlet of the lake, perfect for lounging in the water, or using the kayaks to explore a little more of the lake. The location in the village is very close to the west gate, which is right near the local grocery store, about a 10 min drive. A little further down the road is the Walmart too. We loved that a run to the store was easy

We rented the house next door too and it was a great set up for our family reunion! Both houses have a spacious downstairs area! The laundry room in the house is pretty large, so we actually used it as an extra room and put a pack n play in there.

We had a great time!

Fantastic family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The home was so much bigger than the pictures could convey and had everything we could ask for — and a few surprises! The garage has so much space and the kids loved the ping-pong table. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks and pedal boat daily. The swimming dock has full shade in the late afternoons, and the fact that this property is on basically a cul-de-sac of the lake made it so we could swim and play without concern for boats coming through. We spent a lot of time enjoying the lake view from the screened porch. The master bedroom is huge, and the downstairs bedroom with the nice mattress is incredibly comfortable and quiet. The third bedroom was a little noisier than our kids are accustomed to because there is a mechanical closet for the AC and the plumbing from the master bedroom routes above the bed. We turned on some music for them at bedtime and they slept just fine. Having a kitchen and outdoor gas grill with everything we needed allowed us to cook all of our meals at home. Even washing dishes didn't feel like a chore because of the view. The laundry room has so much space to hang and lay out wet swim clothes to dry. The washing machine and dryer were much fancier than mine but were very straightforward to operate and such a nice amenity to have available.

The only nit-picky request I could make would be for a sharpening stone for the larger kitchen knives; there was a sharpening rod but I couldn't seem to figure it out. But again, that's a minor detail that did not detract from our enjoyment of a wonderful vacation in a very comfortable home.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and were sad to leave. We would absolutely come back! Linda was super nice and easy to work with through the whole booking process, and was available to quickly answer any questions I had.
