Lake Ouachita, pronounced "Wash-ah-taw," stretches over 48,000 acres nestled in the hills of Ouachita National Forest. Its water is known for its superior clarity, and there are over 200 uninhabited islands to explore, perfect for mooring your houseboat along the beachy shoreline. Only 13 miles away from Hot Springs, Arkansas, there are several things to do on and off the lake. Hiking and biking trails are abundant, but Lake Ouachita is also a great location for water sports and activities such as swimming, fishing, kayaking, wakeboarding, water skiing, and even scuba diving. In fact, scuba divers from all over the world come to enjoy Lake Ouachita's unique underwater experience. There are at least 30 distinct dive spots in the lake. The lake's geological formations are what make Lake Ouachita so unique. The 16-mile "Geo-Float Trail," the first water-based trail in the country, was created to showcase these natural formations that go back millions of years. Loads to do for all tastes, from outdoor adventures for local explorers to total isolation for those who prefer seclusion! Other things to note: Living room amenities - Fully furnished & comfortably designed - Fully equipped kitchen - Satellelite TV Extra amenities - Bluetooth enabled JBL speaker - Extremely comfortable queen beds - Hotel Quality bed linen The boat is reasonably soundproof throughout, except for the gentle lapping of the water against the hull. A wonderful kind of seclusion. This means you can enjoy a truly tranquil atmosphere — all in all, a quiet yet incredibly exclusive retreat.

5/5 Excellent

Houseboat Heaven for a Whole Week
The property manager and dock workers were very nice and attentive to all our needs. We stayed from Monday through Saturday and it was quiet and relaxing. The area was beautiful and the houseboat was great with lots of room for everyone. We enjoyed the hot tub and the water was clear and warm, but not too warm. The area was great and we explored it on the party barge. Everyone had a great time! We will definitely bring our kids and grandchildren back for a visit.

5/5 Excellent

Large group for a friends weekend
We had a wonderful time! Boat was having a lot of mechanical and water pump issues, but they were always very happy to hop on board and fix right away. Jeff is a wonderful manager and we enjoyed Pop and Collins quick wit and helpfulness. Awesome customer service. We will definitely be back!

Great weekend getaway!
We had so much fun! None of us had ever stayed on a houseboat, and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It was very spacious and had everything we needed. The views were incredible too. We will definitely be renting again!
