We just got married and honestly, this was our first time away, by ourselves, without a load of friends. We loved the place, nice and cozy, super comfy bed, and the owner was very nice to us. It is just right off the highway, about 5-10 minutes outside of town, but this was something we loved. And we stayed in the "Cabana Cabin". Just perfect for a couple, faces the woods, and I swear they really do have the cabin soundproofed, because we couldn't hear anything! We loved this place and we will definitely be going back, whether just by ourselves, or with friends and family!

My girlfriend & I heard great things about Knotty & Nice through some friends who had passed through Hot Spings earlier this year so we decided to book a couple nights as well, and boy oh boy what a nice surprise we had.

We stayed in the Rustic Cabin, which has a full kitchen, TV, Satellite Cable, Air Conditioning, a separate bedroom, and a bathroom with a HUGE 2-person Jacuzzi! Funnily enough, when we went to the Spa at Quapaw Bath House, they had the SAME EXACT jacuzzi! We coulda stayed in our cabin!

Anyway, we were there during the week so there wasn't anyone else staying there and it was ULTRA private. It feels like you are in a cabin in the woods. Wait - YOU ARE!

The owners, Arturo & Karen, were sooo nice and even cooked us breakfast one morning, even though breakfast isn't included with our particular room. AWESOME! We also played cards and they even took us on one of the nearby nature trails.

Our days in Hot Springs were really special, and Knotty & Nice played a huge part in that. Thanks!

Our family came from Miami for our visit to Arkansas and we found Knotty & Nice cabins .It was a truly wonderful experience .The cabin was much bigger and nicer in person than on the website .Our beds were so comfortable and everything was so clean .We went hiking in the mountains and it was really nice and relaxing.The service provided by Art and Karen was above and beyond what we have ever experienced in all of our vacations for 8 days .

We went to town to the bath houses that is about 15 miles away and also saw all the beautiful fountains in town with the hot spring wáter (spring wáter in town is free,just bring your own bottles and fill up as many as you like). It was amazing and we highly recommend staying a Knotty & Nice .We will come back again the next time we come to Hot Springs.

Room Tip: Warm hospitality and comfortable and clean .

I stayed at the Knotty and Nice B&B a few weeks ago. We had planned on only staying two nights, but some unfortunate circumstances required us to stay an extra night. I couldn't think of a better place for that sort of thing to happen. The cabin we were staying in was so cute that I didn't want to leave. The beds were comfortable and I got really good sleep. We went to the local Wal-Mart and bought some breakfast and snack items to keep at the cabin. It was perfect for cooking breakfast and having coffee in the morning. The place is very clean and well-kept. I usually feel gross walking around without shoes in public places, but the cabin felt so clean that I didn't mind. The living setup is great with the reclining couches and foot stools for the chairs that don't recline. The TV is a nice size and the cable had all of the channels you would ever want. As if these weren't reason enough to check out the Knotty and Nice, the owners are perfectly delightful. Their number one goal is to truly ensure you have a great time. They are willing to go above and beyond to make their guests happy. I had not intended to return to Hot Springs, but three days at the cabin just wasn't enough. I'll be bringing more family members next time so they can enjoy it themselves.

We recently stayed here for our honeymoon and had an awesome experience. The cabin is beautiful and very nicely decorated. It included everything we needed (except towels and we always like using our own anyhow). My husband and I were there for eight days and did not want to leave. The kitchen is completely set up so we were able to prepare all meals with ease. The beds were so comfy and had great quality linens and blankets and there was plenty storage space for unpacking and staying a while which is what you will want to do. The cabin was extremely clean. We were only a few short miles from downtown and everything we needed was a short and scenic drive from our cabin. I especially enjoyed the water. After bathing or showering.... Your hair and skin will feel great!
I can't say enough good things about our stay. The owners, Art and Karen, were awesome. They offer guided mountain hikes and were very helpful with our inquiries concerning Hot Springs. Thanks again Art and Karen for making our stay a fabulous experience. The time and thought you have put into your cabins has made Knotty & Nice a fantastic getaway destination.

This is an amazing bed and breakfast ran by Art and Karen, a wonderful couple who are so accommodating and sweet! The cabins are spacious, clean and comfortable. A huge emphasis on how clean they are!! Like some have already commented, the owners make you feel as if you are a "special guest" in their home. Perfect location for visiting the hot water spas, restaurants and sightseeing. Looking forward to returning to Knotty and Nice ;)

5 stars, 10 out of 10, so happy with my stay!

Room Tip: Hard to choose between the cabins, since they are all super comfortable and up to date! You cant go...

Where to begin! The cabins are way over priced. We were first told one price for extra people and when we got there, they charged us double.
The three nights we stayed, there was hardly any water! No water to wash dishes or shower, and the little water that came out was green. It was a nightmare. We were a big group and when we asked for toilet paper, the owner rudely said we needed to get our own.
There were bees in the windows.
We left very unhappy with the services. And to top things off, they wanted to charge $20 dollars for a stained pillow cover!! That is absolutely ridiculous.
We accidentally left a laptop charger in our cabin and was charging us to send it back. When we called, we told him that it wasn't fair that he had told us one price over the phone and when we got there he charged us double, so he "agreed" to refund the extra he had charged and would send back our charger charge-free.
Two weeks later, no charger. We never received a package. When we called to ask if he had sent it, he said he had changed his mind. So he never refunded anything, and now charging us to get our charger back.
Please do yourselves a favor and do NOT stay here. The cabins by the lake are just as nice and cheaper.
