Private and secure yet convenient to all area amenities, this unique and highly rated property is a mountain ridge contemporary 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with description-defying panoramic views, large furnished, outdoor hot tub, indoor jacuzzi and showers, waterfall, two room fireplace, granite countertops, hardwood floors, carpeted bedrooms, DVD player and every appliance you might possibly need.

This retreat is located on 3/4 acre of walkable mountain ridge property. Each bedroom has its own unique personality and feature:

The King Master bedroom features a sliding glass door onto a small deck with a hot tub that comfortably seats 4 and lusciously reclines two for star gazing or early morning sunrise and bird watching. It is appointed with a lamp and leather recliner, end tables and walk in closet.

The full bed is located in the Fireplace Room, and features a full walk in closet, desk and two chairs.

These rooms each have separate sinks and toilets, with shared jacuzzi bathtub and two person shower with bench.

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.

A lockout unit with a queen bed, fold out sofa, shower, bathroom, refrigerator, coffeemaker and microwave available to expand sleeping capacity for large groups with advance notice. It is available for parties of 8 or more for an additional $125 a night/ $600 per week. Additionally two twin and one queen air mattress with linens/pillows can be made available to assist you in accommodating young children. A bassinet will be available on request after April 1, 2017. 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.

Well-behaved small dogs are welcome with the pet fee, but please clip their nails and do not allow them to jump on furniture. Obviously pick up and clean up all their litter, whether it is in the garage, off the street, or in our yard. We regret that after a number of bad experiences with larger breeds, we no longer allow them in our home, so very sorry.

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. 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.

For additional details on amenities, see https://admin.vrbo.com/lm/321.595425.1142742/amenities.html

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 Arkansas

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 simply the best view in the Village. The architecture of the home, east-west passive solar, floor-to-ceiling glassed walls and vistas from almost all rooms create a nearly 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. And 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 Home with AWESOME views!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 ladies that went on a Winter Retreat in January and had a fabulous time. This is a beautiful mountain retreat home. When searching for a place for us to stay I wanted a place with a good view. The views from this home were absolutely beautiful. The home was beautiful as well with attention to detail. We will definitely come here again for our next winter retreat.

The "Left Wing" is a superb stay

We were very pleased with our stay at the Left Wing. The accommodations were top notch. The scenic view was amazing. Not too far from down town Hot Springs. We would definitely stay there again.

Amazing! (home & views)

  • 5 of 5

We have had a family tradition of staying in HSV over the holidays since 2000. This is the nicest, most well-kept, most spacious place we've ever stayed while here. The whole house is beautifully decorated with many nice touches that made us feel right at home.

All the bedrooms were a good size with ultra-comfortable beds, duvets & pillows.

The kitchen was large enough for 3 people to work at a time and very well-stocked with pots/pans/cooking utensils for anyone who prefers to cook their own meals. We did not try the indoor grill, but were thrilled to have it as an option. The Instant hot water device was great for hot beverages.

We were unprepared for the steepness of the roads & driveway, but the view was absolutely breath-taking & well worth the climb. We also enjoyed the little trails that had been created behind the house & saw lots of birds, deer, wild turkeys, etc. The 3 different balconies were all enjoyed & the wind chimes were a really nice touch that added mellow sounds to a peaceful time of reflection while absorbing the view.

The hot tub was also a great way to relax at the end of a day of playing golf and hiking.

Finally, the lock-out unit was absolutely a wonder. So beautifully appointed with every possible detail added. That bathroom alone was incredible.

Sherry & Bart were easy to communicate with & made every effort to work around my husband's difficult (& changing) work schedule. They also allowed us to add family members, which we deeply appreciated.

This is a place we would whole-heartedly recommend to other families who are seeking a place for a reunion, as there is so much room and it's so easy to entertain here. The number of bedrooms makes it easy for people to "get away" from the crowd if they need some solitude, but the living areas are big enough to allow for mingling and different groups of conversations. We had extended family staying at 2 other units, but for full-family meals this home was elected "Best place to gather"! We hosted meals of 15 with no problem - plenty of chairs & plenty of dishes/silverware for all.

Would we come back again? Absolutely! We hated to leave after only a week's stay & hope to be able to return again in the future.

Pictures do not do this property justice!

  • 5 of 5

We visited this property the end of October in order to view the foliage. There couldn't have been a better location. It is actually just above the scenic overlook on the road! The house was pristine inside and out with every amenity you could ever desire. With windows all the way across the back dining and living area, the view was spectacular. As we sat and ate dinner we could look out over Lake Lago. You also could eat out on the deck with a panoramic view. The beds were the most comfortable I have slept on as of late, and my husband and I travel a good bit. Downtown Hot Springs is within a 30 minutes drive. I would definitely recommend this property and we would like to return ourselves within the near future.
