This wonderful home is available for vacation rentals of 3 day minimums. Additional per night per person charges apply to groups over 4 or 6 depending on the season. Inquire about rates for 2-4 weeks.

Up to two, well-behaved SMALL or med dogs under 50 lbs. 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.

We encourage guests to take their pets with them on forays whenever possible or to kennel them in their familiar kennel. 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 website, as well as in a tourist information basket in the living room. 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

We hope you will be able to join us. We encourage our guests to be mindful that this is our home and we are entrusting you to care for it as you would your own. The Left Wing is Premier Property and has received over 60 5-star reviews, in recognition of the effort we put into helping you create great memories in a beautiful and well-maintained location. We hope to host you and your friends or family as well. Please feel free to contact us with any questions!

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

Our stay has been outstanding! The Grands had so much fun hiking, exploring and the rest of us enjoyed serene relaxation. The views are break taking. Thank you for sharing the comforts of your home with us -- it's certainly one of a kind and we have made great memories here with family.

Nice views, nice home, but ...

  • 4 of 5

Before you book, note that the house is in Hot Springs VILLAGE, not Hot Springs. I missed that detail, but it's just a 20-minute drive, so not too bad. It's a quiet location and scenic. The house is nice and updated, new appliances, a breakfast bar, nice patio, great views of a lake and mountains in the distance. But … the driveway is scary steep uphill and narrow - be sure to arrive and return home every day before it gets dark. The fourth bedroom has no central AC, just fans, and no close bathroom, so two of us ended up bunking in the king-bed master instead of having the four separate bedrooms we wanted. There were not three bathrooms, but two bathrooms - one being a "jack and jill" style with two separate toilets and a shared shower. The fountain out front is gorgeous to look at, but the roaring sound of it required the person in the "Asian waterfall" room to sleep with a pillow over the head. Overall, we had a great time, but I'm not sure we'd go back.

Owner's Response: Greetings Marilyn, Thank you for your kind words and feedback. We do wish you had contacted us about any one of these concerns, as with the exception of the 32 degree pitch driveway, everything else could have been addressed and everyone could have been accommodated. The waterfall has an on/off switch on the front deck, there is an additional Queen bedroom room and large bath on the lower level and leaving the twin room internal door ajar, utilizing the ceiling and/or floor fans, or slightly opening any of the 4 screened windows to create a cross draft each would have amply maintained a comfortable temp during the heat wave. Our best wishes to you in your travels. May you find joy and happiness in all your experiences. Blessings. Bart and Sherry

Beautiful property. "Well-suited" for 7 "adult" ladies attending the Over 70 tennis tourney

  • 5 of 5

The purpose of our visit was to participate in the over 70 tennis tournament at the Coronado Tennis Center. From the beginning I worked with the property owner thru the VRBO site. Sherry responded quickly to each of my inquiries prior to the booking. Once booked, it was necessary to make a couple changes. Again, Sherry could not have been more helpful. I had 7 women in my group. I needed seven beds and as many bathrooms as possible. My team members were thrilled. We had three days of hard tennis, followed by relaxation both in the hot tub and the very open and comfortable kitchen/living area. Several of us walked in the morning, always a pleasure. The property is beautiful in many ways, well taken care of and "cared for". Thank you for this lovely home experience.

Hats off to you all, we hope you make it back to the Village next year! Y'all were simply delightful from beginning to end. Thank you for that and give our best to the other Ladies. Blessings.

Incredible outside and warm inside

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO rentals through the years. The hospitality shown by the Chiltons was the best! Communication could not have been better. The home is beautifully appointed and the view is worth a million! Just sitting outside on the deck drinking coffee in the morning or wine in the evening is the best. Comfortable beds and open floorplan make this a great place to get away.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joe! It was an honor and privilege to host you! There is nothing as rewarding as being able to share our home with people who not only take great care of it, but who enjoy it the way we do ourselves (on the rare occasion we are able to these days!). Thank you again for choosing our home for your special respite together. Come back anytime. It's folks like you who make this enjoyable. Best wishes and great blessings. Bart and Sherry

Nothing can compare

My family and I stayed at The Left Wing for Our Easter vacation. The pictures on here were great but to experience this home and it’s breathtaking views in person leave you at a lost for words. The home is so beautifully decorated and there are special touches everywhere you look. The zen garden is a great place to clear your head, the hot tub at night star watching is really something to experience. The views are amazing from any one of the decks. The time and loving care that Bart and Sherry have put into this home is noticeable the moment you walk in. Even the fragrances upon entering are calming and relaxing. You will not be stressed one moment you are there. The owners answered all questions and concerns that we had and put our minds at ease about everything. We have stayed at other places in the past but this place is by far the best. I appreciate the fact that this wonderful couple has opened their home for others like myself and my family to have this experience . One thing I will note is if you are like me and used to flat land the drive up the mountain is intimidating the first time but you quickly get used to the terrain. I later drove it at night without issues.

Thank you for enjoying it as we hope folks do. Blessings! And come back anytime you can. Sherry and Bart
