The Asian Waterfall bedroom features a queen sized bed, private bathroom with enclosed shower, small closet with dresser. It is nestled on the quiet north side of the home, with screened windows that can be opened to take in the delightful sound of the waterfall, accompanied on summer nights by a symphony of tree and bull frogs. In winter it offers a beautiful view of glorious mosses and lichen on quartz-veined boulders..

At the end of the hall, adjacent the two car garage is the Asian Twin room or Bunkhouse, currently appointed with nightstand, cabinets and shelving, and two comfortable twin beds for the singles, young adults or children traveling with family.

Housekeeping can be arranged during weekly visits for additional fee.

Guests are responsible for setting up and packing up the air mattresses and bassinet as they best suit your needs and groups. This is not a chore to be left for housekeeping.

This wonderful home is available for vacation rentals of 3 day minimums. Additional per night per person charges apply to groups over 4. Longer term leases are available in the off season (December - February) at discounted prices depending on availability. Please inquire with owner.

Up ro two, well-behaved SMALL dogs at $100 per animal are welcome to join you. Unfortunately, after several bad experiences with guests who did not appropriately kennel or manage their larger breeds, we no longer allow them in our home, so very sorry. Carpets, doors and furniture are quite expensive to replace.

For the safety of any pets who may accompany you, please take them with you on your forays and by all means keep them inside in the evenings. No animals should be locked out on the balconies, ever. Bobcats track the deer up the ridge and an occasional coyote can be heard down near the lake in the evenings. We want all family members to return home safely! Nature watchers have reported wild turkeys, road runners and myriad songbirds as well. Hummers are prolific and highly entertaining during the summer when guests keep feeders filled with clean sugar water.

Hot Springs Village is a delightful golfing, fishing, hiking, boating and crystal mining retreat one hour west of Little Rock. Activity information including trail maps can be found on the HSVPOA.org website. The Left Wing is 35 minutes from the Hot Springs bathhouses and Oaklawn Racetrack (via Danville Gate) and 35 minutes from the Coleman Crystal mines in Jessieville off Route 7, 45 minutes from the Miller Mountain mines (via the West Gate). We are no more than 15 minutes from any golf course in the Village.

Please be mindful that this is our home and we are entrusting our guests to care for it as you would your own. We hope to have you as one of our "5 star guests" Best!

About Sherry and Bart Chilton

We are currently on a work assignment that keeps us away from this beautiful place. We deeply love (and miss!) our mountain retreat, and hope to return in a few years. In the interim, we want to share with others the amazingly beautiful vistas and peaceful energies in this 'Natural State' of Arkansas.

We are available by email and text before during and after your visit to assist you in any way we can.

Sherry and Bart Chilton purchased this house in 2009

Why Sherry and Bart Chilton chose Hot Springs Village

After owning homes in Maryland, including one with a gorgeous sunrise over the Chesapeake Bay, we pinched ourselves more than once saying, 'Arkansas? Really? Arkansas?' Aging parents diagnosed with chronic illnesses brought us here. Golf didn't hurt. This particular home sealed the deal. We found it in a state of disrepair, and the lot itself was impenetrable. But it is one of a kind contemporary home in the far more traditional Village. The couple who commissioned the home utilized a local architect, protege of Frank Lloyd Wright and Euine Fay Jones. The owners passed away and we were fortunate to purchase the property from their son. The original plans, as well as photographs of the construction of what was once 'The Crows Nest' are onsite. The property was recommissioned 'The Left Wing' after the highly pronounced feature of the east deck, and indeed the emulation of a bird in flight atop the mountain. From the ancient oak growing out of rock, to the rose quartz veins in the driveway boulders, we found this place to be a sacred and profoundly relaxing home. Over time our passion for water and watching boats was equalled by our love of clouds, stars and weather patterns. We hope guests are able to rejuvenate and reconnect here as we have.

Like so many others in the Hot Springs and Lake Ouachita area, we discovered only after moving here, the magic that exists both inside and outside of the gated community of Hot Springs Village. Please come. Enjoy your favorite pastimes, and if you truly enjoy nature and wildlife, you will return again and again. The Ouachitas and this area of the state through Mt. Ida and up to Mt. Magazine are really quite extraordinary. Who knew?

What makes this house unique

It is the most dynamic and stunning panoramic mountain rental view in the Village. The architecture of the home, east-west passive solar, floor-to-ceiling glassed walls and vistas from almost all rooms and decks offer 180 degree view of Pinnacle Mountain in the distance northwest of Little Rock to Ouachita National Forest west of Hot Springs.

There is no better place to view a dozen firework displays from the comfort of one's own decks. The open floor plan offers a perfect place for retreats of all kinds.

Please read reviews of previous guests, compare our calendar to yours and reserve your time at this remarkable place. We hope to be able to welcome you soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your hospitality was superb!! Way beyond our expectations! Our family has not been able to have a holiday together in years and our stay at The Left Wing will go in our bank of good memories book as one of the best, if not the best, get togethers we have had so far. We live in three different states and now plan to get together each year because of the good times experienced by The Left Wing and your hospitality. If not for your thoughtfulness and love for family, Sherry, making the best chocolate chip cookies with my 13 year old granddaughter could not have happened, nor would the joy of watching my son make challah bread and enjoying the warm smells in the house. It is the little things in life that are important and thanks to this wonderful trip and the stay at such a Feng shui environment as the Left Wing -- No place like it!!

Beautiful from the minute you step out of your car!

  • 5 of 5

This property has a amazing view from the inside to the panoramic view of the lake, trees, and hillsides. Everything you need for a relaxing get-away is definitely in the house. The decor is gorgeous with great art work and quality bedroom settings (comfortable beds more then adequate blankets/beds) very comfortable!!! Worth it to get away and enjoy this house. There is much to do there you will be eager to return and relax by the fireplace, or have a beverage on one of the many decks, trails, and/or hot tub.

Already thinking of when to return! A great get-away! Next time will make time to check more of Hot Springs!! Thank you Bart and Sherry for a great place to stay!!!

Beautiful ! and very peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Booked this for a reunion of 6 longtime close women friends. It felt like the never ending drive for many of us to meet up here, but we would do it again in a heartbeat! This is a very special home and we felt honored to be able to stay here. Every room is extremely comfortable and relaxing. The trees, decks, hot tub, beautiful landscaped nature trail, rock waterfall, hummingbirds kept us extremely happy. We never turned on the tv or used internet. We did use and enjoy the very well equipped kitchen. A special treat we didn't completely anticipate was experiencing the solar eclipse in such a beautiful setting. It was amazing!

Although we were close enough to Hot Springs, we opted to skip the baths and town and stay where we were perfectly happy and relaxed. I highly recommend this retreat over anywhere you could possibly stay in or near Hot Springs. We'll be back! Thank you, Sherry and Bart, for creating such a beautiful place and sharing it!
