About Hal or Meg Williams

Hal and Meg Williams live in Red Lodge, Montana but travel to Hot Springs every winter to train and race a small stable of horses at Oaklawn Jockey Club under the name Avalon Racing Inc. They have been racing in Hot Springs since 1997 and before buying Avalon Cottage have lived in a number of rental locations along the shores of Lake Hamilton during those years and know the area well.

Hal or Meg Williams purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Hal or Meg Williams chose Hot Springs

We had been looking for a small cottage on this part of the lake for the past several years. We've always liked the convenience of easy access to every need along Central Avenue just blocks away while still enjoying the seclusion of a small cove off the lake's main channel. We enjoy the comforts of Avalon Cottage ourselves from mid-January to early April most years.

What makes this cottage unique

We love sitting on the back porch in the evenings to watch life on the lake go by. Being so close to everything while still having the privacy of a detached cottage in a quiet setting is our favorite thing about Avalon Cottage.

Amazing cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place! My wife and I stayed for our anniversary and couldn’t imagine anything more perfect. Right on the lake, close to everything (but not too close), and just the right size. Hal and Meg have made sure that everything you need is there - it was really wonderful.

A Lovely Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was so cute! We loved the view of the lake, and the cottage was the perfect size for me and my boyfriend. If you forgot to bring something, never fear! Meg and Hal definitely have you covered! We appreciated being able to use the washer and dryer after a long day digging in the quartz mine. We highly recommend this place and plan to stay again in the future :)

Whether you are a fisherman, boater, water skier, golfer, hiker, gamer or just need to get away from it all; Lake Hamilton is a popular recreational/relaxation destination. Beautiful Lakes Quachita and De Gray add to the area's natural beauty nestled against a backdrop of the Quachita Mountains. Hot Springs National Park, while the country's smallest, is the country's first national park. Whether it's a hike, a bath in pure, steaming, spring water or a glass of wine while considering a stop for antiques...it's all right there in historic downtown Hot Springs six miles from Avalon Cottage. Even closer, 3.5 miles, is Oaklawn Racing and Gaming. Oaklawn offers horse racing simulcasting from around the country all year long as well as electronic gaming in the form of poker, blackjack and reel games... come away a winner, day or night. On your way home to quiet, sun dappled Avalon Cottage, you'll have a wide choice of shopping and dining. Then sit on the cottage's deck and watch the late day sun light up the lake's opposite shore.
