About Donald and Diana
We are from Iowa and I have been visiting Hot Springs as long as I can remember. My husband started coming down with my family since 1978. We married in 1982 and had 4 boys in 12 years. Our boys loved it every summer we would fill our conversion van with them and 3 or 4 of their cousins or friends to come with us. My poor mother, she welcomed us every trip and with only 2 bedrooms and a hida bed in the living room and one bathroom. God bless my mother. Our boys have so many memories of their grandparents and our trips here. They now bring their families to make memories with us. Its not the same without my parents here, we miss them greatly. Mom would tell me she loves to have us come, but it was good to see us go. I totally understand that now. LOL
Why Donald and Diana chose Hot Springs
we are from Iowa and have been visiting Hot Springs yearly all my life. my parents had friends here and purchased this home in 1972. We purchased the home from my dad in 2014. We remodeled in 2015. We added a second story and 3 more bedrooms and another bathroom upstairs. We have 4 grown boys with families now and they all come down for vacations with their kids. So much easier with more bedrooms and bathrooms. We hope others can enjoy our home and make memories while we cannot be here to enjoy it.
What makes this House unique
we chose this property, well because it feels like home and the view is great, the neighbors could not be any nicer. We drive 10 hours to enjoy our home away from home and it is worth every hour of the drive to get here. Close to most anything you would want to do in Hot Springs and only steps away from the lake.

Family time at the lake
Property was awesome felt right at home.
There was no marina on the lake or we couldn’t find one. Makes it difficult to gas up.
Listing pictures showed dock empty so I assumed that’s how it would be when I arrived.
There is gas at lake Catherine state park. If you put in at Remmel dam as you come out of that cove the first cove on your left takes you to the state park. they rent boats there and they have gas. Always feel free to call or text us with questions and we could have told you where you can get gas. Sorry for that inconvenience, glad you enjoyed your stay otherwise
you all are welcome to stay again.
Love the location
We really enjoyed our stay, the location on the lake was perfect! Kids really enjoyed the dock, the paddle boat was a big hit!
Erin, so glad you all enjoyed your stay.
You all are welcome to stay again
Wonderful property with plenty of room for 3 families. Diane and Donnie were very gracious hosts! Plenty to do for my grandkids! Thank you for a wonderful time!!
So glad you all had a good time. You are welcome to stay at our home any time it’s available.
Family trip to Lake Catherine
We love Lake Catherine! We were in Arkansas for a family reunion in Malvern. This house was an awesome fit for our family group. The kids swam a lot. We even rented a party barge from the state park marina and played on the sand bar. This is definitely some place we'd rent again and recommend to friends & family - there were Stewart's, Morris' and Ray's - 3 generations in all!
So glad you all enjoyed yourselves. You all are welcome to stay at our home again.
Great property for big family get away!
We had 3 families with children all together for a week. We fit nicely with room to spare. The property is great, and the hosts are very informative. They were great to deal with during our stay. They are super responsive to messages. We enjoyed our family get away! (:
We are so happy you all enjoyed your stay. You are all welcome to come back.
Wonderful to share time with my immediate and foster family
The property was perfect for our number (12). Everyone had a bed and the house was spacious. The owners could not have been nicer and we will be back
We are so happy you all enjoyed our home and had a good time. You are welcome to come back. Try staying over the summer when you can enjoy the lake.
our home is located 10 miles or less from most of attractions in Hot Springs. we are very centrally located
Lake Catherine State park rents boats and also sells gas on the lake.
