Idyllic Cottage and Location
Truly, a peaceful property within easy walking distance of downtown Hot Springs. The lovely back porch and yard provided a quiet and beautiful view, offering inspiration as I dabbled with my paints. I enjoyed the kitchen, brought my own pans but didn't need them! Everything was there and I love to cook. It was also nice to walk to dinner, walk to shop, walk to the trail and to the Hot Springs Spa...if you love to walk, this is the place for you! Wish I could have stayed longer. Melanie was wonderful, easily accessible and helpful! The house was clean and well maintained. This property is easy to find and close to perfection. I'd suggest a couple of things. For me it wasn't an issue, but some people do enjoy television and don't bring their laptops on vacation. You might consider adding to the property description that a flat screen and HDMI cable are provided, for those interested in using their own subscription entertainment services to view television programming or movies. Also, a mattress upgrade would be nice. :) Most people visiting Hot Springs spend more time outdoors, and if that's you, this is a wonderful get-away. I can't emphasize peace and quiet enough! It's nice to spend time with local shop owners, an outfitter is nearby with provisions for those spending time on the Appalachian Trail. I picked up a few things there and truly enjoyed shopping with a local gallery. Price points were wonderful! I didn't cook evening meals, ate out. The Smoky Mountain Diner offers true, southern comfort food and their in-house meatloaf will not disappoint. Tried the veggie specialties at The Iron Horse, The Spring Creek Grill's pizza and locally sourced music was a blast. Loved the patio, it IS smoking, just so you're aware. Lots of breezes, wasn't an issue for me. You'll want to make reservations with the Hot Spring Spa, for a late night soak! They also offer massage. The nightly soaks certainly help with sleep, I highly recommend them! Occasionally, my mind would begin arranging furniture and imagine spending my retirement years in this house! As you can see, I would definitely return!
