Overview

About the property

Rustic lake front cottage with boat dock and great views!

No kidding, the view is spectacular with Mount Riante in the distance. We are on the main channel facing due South which is important because it means NO MOSQUITOS and there is always a nice breeze.

We are just outside the city limits of Hot Springs which means we are minutes away from everything, 5 minutes from Oaklawn Park, yet located on a private, quiet peninsula.

We have a boat dock available with a marina a few hundred yards away to gas up the boat. You will put your boat in at Hill Wheatley park and hop across the main channel to our boat dock.

We have covered parking for your vehicle or your boat trailer. You will want to put your boat in prior to coming to cottage as we have a steep driveway.

About Chris Schmiedeke

Myself, my wife and our two girls live in Dallas, Texas. My wife is originally from Hot Springs and we travel here as much as time will allow.

We love the Hot Springs area, and wanted someplace on the lake where we could get away.

Chris Schmiedeke purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Chris Schmiedeke chose Hot Springs

We love this property because of the spectacular views and southerly breeze. We had a place in a cove at one time, and the mosquitos were unbearable.

Our home is a rustic 50+ year old cottage built right on the lake. Multiple decks to lounge on, a boat dock and steps right down into the water.

Check the photos and reviews to learn more about our vacation home. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton, this is not your place. This is a fantastic rustic cottage where you can hang out at night and spend your days in the water. It is private and quiet with the rumble of boat engines and waves to put you to sleep on the deck.

What makes this cottage unique

There are multiple decks to lounge on and great swimming. We are minutes from everything by both boat and car. It is a perfect location.

Fantastic location! Perfect view of the lake! It was perfect for our group of 7 friends.

  • 4 of 5

Loved this quaint little bungalow. Owner wasn’t certain 7-8 adults would sleep comfortably, but we had no issues. The bedroom was plenty big for the two queen beds plus a queen air mattress. Living area and kitchen was plenty big for what we needed it for. Outdoor area is amazing with a great view of the lake. And believe it or not, bugs truly aren’t a problem because of the constant breeze.

Owner was easily accessible for questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Isn't it amazing about the bugs? We had a place a long time ago in a cove with no breeze and it was MISERABLE!

Comfy, cozy, and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at the cabin! It’s a neat older cabin that sits nestled back a little from the shoreline. It was great to sit under the fan on the covered porch and watch the activity on the lake! We were out early in the morning and late into the evening! Beds were comfortable, nice to have WiFi and cable tv even though we spent little time inside! Would definitely love coming back!

A Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cabin is very well equipped, has a great view of a lake. It was quite, peaceful and close to the village yet secluded. The drive way to the cabin from the road is steep, but doable-a easy give for the view and privacy one gets. Owner was very accommodative to our requests. A wonderful stay!
