After realizing our rates were double what we were quoted at The Homestead, we scrambled to find an alternative in the Hot Springs area.
We lucked out finding the Kings Victorian Inn. The main house was lovely, the owner/operators - Richard and Liz King - couldn't have been nicer and more hospitable, and we even had our own little charming cottage on the property giving us a bit more privacy than you get at some B&B's. All this at more than half the price of The Homestead, but still allowing us to access to all the amenities, dining, and activities of the resort/hotel. There was at least one other B&B right next to the Homestead, but the property was no match to that of the Kings Victorian Inn, which though a mile a away from town, is walkable to The Homestead. Many thanks to the Kings for making our weekend escape so enjoyable!
