About the property

This Is #3 Of A Private, Four Cottage Sanctuary That Is Perfect For Two.

Avalon Cottage sleeps two with 415 square feet of well lit interior space and a 10' by 18' porch, a great place to sit, relax and enjoy the lake. With a crisply linened, new mattress queen bed; plump, absorbant, luxury bathroom towels; washer/dryer, Calphalon cookware and Fiesta dinnerware completing a full kitchen; Avalon Cottage means comfort. With vintage Hollywood Regency style dressers, Turkoman rugs and period artwork; Avalon Cottage means elegance. With a boat deck to tie off your boat to or toss a lure and fish from, a swim deck and lounge chairs all in a park-like setting; Avalon Cottage means fun. (NOTE: Lake Hamilton's water level is drawn down in early November every year and during this time boats can not reach our dock space.) With Hot Springs Mall, Kroger, Salty Dog Boat and Jet Ski Rental, many chain and independent restaurants all within a mile; Avalon Cottage means convenience. Equipped with secure, password-enabled wi-fi; you can stay connected at Avalon Cottage while enjoying a large HD flat screen TV carrying Dish Network's America's Top 200 channels and HBO Pack with DVR service.

About Hal or Meg Williams

Hal and Meg Williams live in Red Lodge, Montana but travel to Hot Springs every winter to train and race a small stable of horses at Oaklawn Jockey Club under the name Avalon Racing Inc. They have been racing in Hot Springs since 1997 and have lived in a number of rental locations along the shores of Lake Hamilton during those years and know the area well.

Hal or Meg Williams purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Hal or Meg Williams chose Arkansas

The Williams' have been looking for a small cottage on this part of the lake for the past several years. They have always liked the convenience of easy access to every need along Central Avenue just blocks away while still enjoying the seclusion of a small cove off the lake's main channel. The Williams' plan to enjoy the comforts of Avalon Cottage themselves from mid-January to early April most years.

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We really enjoyed the cottage. They definitely had the guests in mind. They thought of every little thing. Also the view was peaceful and pretty. We enjoyed our stay and we will definitely go back.

Adorable cottage on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway, and it was everything we had expected and more! We loved how it was right by the lake and in a peaceful area, yet it was so close to everything we wanted to do! It's small and cozy, and has everything you could possibly need while visiting. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and we would recommend this place to anyone!

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Avalon was a wonderful place to relax. Close enough to everything, yet so quiet and serene. The cottage has every amenity needed. The kitchen had all utensils needed to cook, even an outdoor grill. Meg was great. She checked on us several times and was able to get someone to us to change out a propane tank for the grill within minutes of me contacting her. GREAT OWNERS!!! My husband said I "scored" this time in booking in Hot Springs! He loved it to! Thanks guys! Ellen

Perfect Couple's Get Away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Hot Springs for a quick get away and this cottage was the perfect place for us! It is located minutes from everything but away from the high traffic areas. It was super clean (which is a MUST for me), cozy, comfortable, and stocked with necessary items to make you feel at home. The owners were EXTREMELY helpful and easy to contact via email and text messages. We will definitely stay here again!

Excellent cottage in a serene location

  • 5 of 5

We (my wife, 3 year old son and I) had a very relaxing stay at Avalon cottage. Each and every interior was well decorated and we instantly felt at home. Even before the stay, the owners have been very helpful during our phone discussion and we never had any problems before and during the trip. I would recommend this unit to anyone who insists on having a nice calm stay in a beautiful home next to the lake.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at the lake! We do want to note that the cottage has just one queen-size bed, so is best suited for couples. We're happy you loved our cottage as much as we do!

Relaxing and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time and absolutely loved staying here for our anniversary weekend! It seemed secluded even though it is located in a small neighborhood. The cottage itself is adorable. Tastefully decorated and cozy. We can't recommend this place highly enough! If we are ever back in the Hot Springs area, this cottage will be our go to place to stay. Thanks Hal and Meg!
