Overview

About the property

Rustic lake front cottage with boat dock and great views!

No kidding, the view is spectacular with Mount Riante in the distance. We are on the main channel facing due South which is important because it means NO MOSQUITOS and there is always a nice breeze.

We are just outside the city limits of Hot Springs which means we are minutes away from everything, 5 minutes from Oaklawn Park, yet located on a private, quiet peninsula.

We have a boat dock available with a marina a few hundred yards away to gas up the boat. You will put your boat in at Hill Wheatley park and hop across the main channel to our boat dock.

We have covered parking for your vehicle or your boat trailer. You will want to put your boat in prior to coming to cottage as we have a steep driveway.

About Chris Schmiedeke

Myself, my wife and our two girls live in Dallas, Texas. My wife is originally from Hot Springs and we travel here as much as time will allow.

We love the Hot Springs area, and wanted someplace on the lake where we could get away.

Chris Schmiedeke purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Chris Schmiedeke chose Arkansas

We love this property because of the spectacular views and southerly breeze. We had a place in a cove at one time, and the mosquitos were unbearable.

Our home is a rustic 50+ year old cottage built right on the lake. Multiple decks to lounge on, a boat dock and steps right down into the water.

Check the photos and reviews to learn more about our vacation home. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton, this is not your place. This is a fantastic rustic cottage where you can hang out at night and spend your days in the water. It is private and quiet with the rumble of boat engines and waves to put you to sleep on the deck.

What makes this cottage unique

There are multiple decks to lounge on and great swimming. We are minutes from everything by both boat and car. It is a perfect location.

Your cabin was so much better than we anticipated. The views and the rustic cabin feel were amazing. It made our Arkansas getaway spectacular. It is clean, well stocked, and close to everything. We surely recommend this place. Thank you for sharing your cabin.

relaxing

  • 3 of 5

Great lake home. Fit our vision of a relaxing get away perfectly even though the place could use a little work. The inside of the house was comfortable and homey. The wooden deck needs to be replaced pretty badly and the boat dock is nothing I would pull a nice boat up to (if I had one to pull up). If you're going to bring a boat or toddlers, find something else. If you're in it for the view of the lake and a relaxing weekend with no watercraft... it's great.

Charming Lake House

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. The house was clean, neat and in the perfect location. Loved the fact we were able to bring our two fur babies. Aside from not having a dust pan and just a couple of basic cleaning supplies handy, it was perfect.

Loved it was homey & right on the lake. Easy fishing for the guys, & kids could swim from the dock. Close to Magic Springs, & only an hour to Little Rock Zoo. Owner prompt to answer questions.
