She had menus easily accessible, cute soaps, towels laid out. Tons of room and large dining great for playing cards. Porch was so relaxing for enjoying tea. Could have stayed much longer. Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality.

                                                              Really good!

                                                              Walnut Cottage is absolutely wonderful! Melanie called a few days before our trip to check in and answer any questions. She was so pleasant and helpful! The cottage is in a great location. It was extremely clean and quaint. The fire pit was even prepped with kindling placed in it! I felt so relaxed throughout the stay. The cottage has everything you need! If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the "real world," I highly recommend visiting Hot Springs and staying at Walnut Cottage. I can't wait to return!

                                                              This is a well-maintained cozy home, well-equipped to move right, relax and enjoy the town. We appreciated the thoughtful gestures, such as notepads, air fresheners, cookbooks, etc. The home was clean and stocked well with clean towels, etc. The walk to town is just a few blocks, and Dollar General down the street was very convenient. We even had home-away-from-home friendly cat in the yard nightly to welcome us! Highly recommend, would love to return.
