At Home in Arkansas

We found this comfortable spot here in mountains of Arkansas just by chance.   There are benefits to travel in the off-season; fewer people, less traffic, fewer people, lower prices, fewer people and easy access to better accommodations.  Did I mention fewer people?

Los Lagos is a time share with one and two bedroom units, located on the Lake Desoto.  The in-unit laundry was a draw for us.  We booked the first two nights on Priceline for less than we would have paid at a local motel.  We added another night as soon as we arrived; this is definitely a “Kum & Stay” kind of place.

Once again this morning we enjoy our coffee while watching the sun rise through the pines from our couch before heading out for a walk in the clean, crisp mountain air.  

Hot Springs Village

Hot Springs Village is the largest gated community in the United States with more than 26,000 heavily-wooded acres.  This little city is Governed by a Property Owners' Association with the day-to-day running handled by an average of 475 employees assigned to one of six departments: Administration, Golf, Planning & Inspections, Public Safety, Public Works, and Recreation.  The village boasts of eleven lakes and 20 miles of walking paths.  We have seen signs which indicate that many here have golf carts, although we have not seen any.   Have I mentioned fewer people?
