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 Piney

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.

                                                              Thank you for the review! Glad you could relax.

                                                              A great retreat from a busy schedule with great views and right on the lake!

                                                              My husband and I enjoyed our stay completely! The home is older, but well maintained and charming. The access and views of the lake are unbeatable. The owner provided great kitchen necessities, which my husband and I took full advantage of rather than eating out every meal. In fact, we enjoyed crab legs and shrimp from a local food truck while sitting by the dock. Quiet and peaceful, but close to Walmart and Central Avenue. We will definately return!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              The view was amazing! This place was perfect for my family of four and then some if we had more people staying. I will definitely be back! Not far from downtown hot springs either!

                                                              The property has beautiful views. It was clean and comfortable.

                                                              Not what I expected..

                                                              I did not realize how steep the driveway was. To me this was roller coaster STEEP! I had a severe anxiety attack due to the drive to the cabin and driveway. There was an open access to the master tub, which looked like it was in process of repair. But this allowed, access for a large rodent to the cabin. We had to leave after that first night and stay at the Hampton Inn for the remainder of the weekend.

                                                              Great getaway
