Innkeeper(s): Hu & Vista White
  • Introduction

    Our comfortable rustic hilltop home is situated on thirteen wooded acres located just 10 minutes from Historic Downtown Hot Springs and world-famous Bathhouse Row.......secluded enough for peace, country quiet and privacy, but convenient to local attractions, shopping and dining.

    Our two-bedroom Woodlands Suite is part of the main house.  Our cozy one-bedroom Starlght Cottage is a separate structure.  Both offer the same amenities, and each has its own private, fenced deck with an outdoor hot tub for two.

    We specialize in creative packages for special occasions, seasons and holdays, and are happy to assist our guests as they plan the perfect Hot Springs getaway.
