About our home

Vacation in a premiere resort community in central Arkansas! Newer home in Hot Springs Village, a gated community (http://www.hsvpoa.org/), located on the Isabella Golf course - one of 9 golf courses in HSV. Situated 45 miles west of Little Rock (closest airport), HSV offers championship golf, 9 lakes with boating, tennis, hiking trails, fitness center, and natatorium. Nearby are pristine lakes and Ouachita Mountains and 15 east of Hot Springs National Park - the first national park in the United States (http://www.nps.gov/hosp/index.htm), famous for mineral hot springs and spas.

Our southern home is very well equipped and comfortable. The spacious living/dining/kitchen and breakfast area opens onto a large outside deck. The guest bedroom, bath, and study are separated from the master suite for privacy. Car is available for swap.

Situated in a golf community, there is access to restaurants and wildlife. There is an indoor and outdoor pool available just a short drive away, as well as tennis and a fully-equipped work-out center.
Bicycles and kayacks are available. Arkansas is the "Natural State" and if you love outdoor activities, this is the place for you! This house is a great home base for travels around the U.S. as it is centrally located.

Hot Springs Village, a gated community, is a great place to relax and enjoy yourself. The people are very friendly yet you can easily find solitude and privacy. Activities abound and you can do everything, or just kick back and do nothing.

My husband and I both are university professors. We have traveled widely and speak a smattering of languages (none of them terribly well but adequate). We relocated from Montana four years ago seeking a more temperate climate.

We are avid golfers, love to float the great Arkansas rivers in our sit-upon kayacks, and hike whenever we get the chance. As we both work, we have summers off and winter vacation.

We have gotten back into fly fishing and want to try some new streams.

Features

More about us

  1. We are two university professors, married and mature. Not that many years away from retirement but university work gives us time off to enjoy our travels.

  2. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, fishing, and golf. We enjoy any activity that allows us to be outdoors and connected to nature.

  3. We are into slowing down and enjoy life - it goes by too fast!
