This property is in an amazing location. The lake is literally right out the back. There are all sorts of water crafts available for guests’ use. Our family used the paddle boat to give the kids the thrill of some lake activity. It was too cold for any other of the water toys. The guys fished some, and actually caught a nice bass.
Everything you need is here for an enjoyable family outing. The house is well equipped and location is amazing. Windows provide Great Lake views from every room in the back of the house! The decks are great for grilling and enjoying view of lake. The fire pit was great for making s’mores. The house is somewhat dated, but continually be maintained and updated. The price makes up for the bit of things that still need working on.
Some fun things we did: Garvan Gardens, Ron Coleman Mine, Hot Springs bath houses, go-cart and arcade nearby and some shopping in downtown Hot Springs. Great location for doing all these activities.
We live in IL and my sister’s family lives in Texas, Holiday Island was a perfect halfway point for us to spend the Thanksgiving weekend. After our 8.5 hour drive, we were all thrilled to arrive at the house, it was perfect for us - 4 adults and 4 kids under the age of 8. The place was clean and well equipped with all we needed. Spacious and open floor plan worked great for us and allowed the kids play with no one feeling on top of each other. Sunroom with flat screen and surround sound was where the dads parked it to watch football. Beautiful grounds and neighborhood, had planned to golf (which looked great) but decided to do other site seeing instead (down town Eureka Springs and Onyx Cave - great finds!)
One small hiccup- could not connect to WiFi but just called our contact, and he was quick to respond, very helpful and we were hooked up in no time.
We all agree, we would do this road trip again as well as stay at this same home...definitely was exactly what we were looking for! To quote my husband, ‘I give it a 10 out of 10 and we hope to go back next year!’
