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.

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.

Better than expected, perfect for two!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is in this relaxing, cute cottage for two. My husband and I wanted to just relax and fish, and we were able to do both. The cottage is clean, felt secluded, yet close to everything you need. We chose to go out to eat most nights and loved the restaurant choices close by. We spent most evenings fishing on the deck and were not disappointed. We will definitely return to this cottage on our next couple get away, and even hope to rent their larger cottage on the property with our kids, soon.

Quaint, quiet, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay! My husband and I honeymooned in Hot Springs, AR. This cottage was everything we had hoped for. When we vacation we tend to spend the majority of our day out and about and our evenings in. This cottage was close enough to everything that coming back for lunch, mid day was doable and our evenings in were lovely. The lake view was nice and the lake community the cottage is in was very quiet (we were here in January). The cottage was clean and well taken care of. The kitchen had all the necessary tools and kitchenware. Meg and Hal are easy to get a hold of if need be and because they also spend time in Hot Springs are a GREAT resource about attractions should you need one. We were grateful to have such an awesome place to call "home" for the week we were in AR.

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!
