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 before buying Avalon Cottage 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

We had been looking for a small cottage on this part of the lake for the past several years. We've 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. We enjoy the comforts of Avalon Cottage ourselves from mid-January to early April most years.

What makes this cottage unique

We love sitting on the back porch in the evenings to watch life on the lake go by. Being so close to everything while still having the privacy of a detached cottage in a quiet setting is our favorite thing about Avalon Cottage.

Owner's Response: We spent a few years early on living in a 25' travel trailer and definitely learned a few things about living in small spaces! Since we spend several months a year at the cottage, we've made sure it's comfortable and livable for our guests as well as us. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Excellent cottage with all the amenities you could ever need for a nice, relaxing vacation on the lake. The owners, Hal and Meg, are great and very attentive to your needs. Not that you would need much since they have thought of every detail to make the cottage like a home! This was our second time visiting and will no doubt be back again when in Hot Springs
