My wife and I just returned to Arlington, Texas after spending our honeymoon in and around Hot Springs. We chose Country Charm Log Cabins based on the numerous stellar reviews, and I can assure you that all those great reviews are right on the money. There are other groups of rental cabins in the Hot Springs area. But, many of the photos are deceiving. We found that many of the other groups of cabins are only yards from busy roads, or gas stations, or other less-than-desirable views. Country Charm, however, is off of a two-lane black top road in a small town, and the cabins are situated on 40+ acres of private property. Our cabin was located far back from the road and nestled in among hundreds of trees. The view was great and the sound of passing cars was faint, when they could even be heard at all. In addition, with the cabins being located in Bismarck, they're centrally located between Hot Springs and Arkadephia, and make for easy access to Garvan Woodland Gardens, Crater of Diamonds State Park, and other area attractions.
Mari and Jerry are terrific and friendly hosts, yet they also know how to respect your privacy during your stay. They have done an amazing job on the cabins and property, and there are more features and amenities to come in the future.
The little touches in the cabin were a pleasant surprise. Our cabin, the Couples Cabin, had a small fridge, full-sized oven, full-sized microwave, toaster, coffee pot, ironing board and iron, hair dryer, satellite TV and DVD player, queen-sized bed, small closet for hanging clothes, jetted tub, shower, central heat and air, front covered porch with table and two chairs, rear uncovered porch, and all the other little things one would expect to find. There is one pond already on the property, and another nearing completion.
We saw a few deer and other small animals on the property, and the fall foliage made for amazing scenery!
I really can't say enough great things about the place! If you enjoy the outdoors at all and appreciate a break from the city but still want to be close to Hot Springs, I'd highly recommend you book with Country Charm Log Cabins.
