Escape to the beautiful resort town of Hot Springs set against the rolling Ouachita Mountains and home to numerous — you guessed it — natural hot springs.

Perhaps one of the lesser-known national parks in the country, Hot Springs National Park is a hidden gem tucked away adjacent to a small and unsuspecting Arkansas city that shares the same name. It’s a place where visitors can enjoy a soak in the natural bubbling waters found in Bathhouse Row, hike the exciting trails throughout the surrounding forested mountains, and stroll the historic downtown streets.

But before you can start your Arkansas adventure, finding a cozy cabin rental in Hot Springs is a must! Vacation rentals offer visitors a home away from home experience that’s both convenient and memorable.
