The Asian Waterfall bedroom features a queen sized bed, nightstands, lamps, full dresser and oriental linen chest, and small closet. It enjoys a private bathroom with enclosed shower. The Waterfall room and bath are 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, 3 steps down and with its own exterior door to a courtyard area, is the Asian Twin room or Bunkhouse, currently appointed with a shared nightstand, cabinets and large etagere and two comfortable twin beds best suited for singles, young adults or older children.

Housekeeping can be arranged during weekly visits for an additional fee.

It is available for parties of 8 or more for an additional $125 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. For those with newborns, infants or toddlers, a bassinet and a pack and play are available on request. Guests are responsible for setting up and packing up the air mattresses, bassinet and pack and play as they best suit your needs and groups.

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

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!!

An awesome retreat

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this property justice and the Host, Shetty and Bart, are the best we've experienced. We just recently lost a dear love one to cancer and the need for rest and meditation was critical. Our experience in This beautiful mountain top home truly helped us to relax and allow the healing process to begin. The views were unbelievable from every room in the house with added touches of waterfalls, wind chimes, and creative landscape combined with nature in its truest state,. The unique open space and beautiful home decor share a glimpse of the owner's warm personalities and their thoughtfulness as the home was completely stocked including a gift basket and a sympathy card for our loss. I could go on, but my words can't come close to an actual experience of this home and the hospitality of its Host! We are definitely planning to return! Thank you again Sherry and Bart for sharing your gift! Gwen and Charles.

Wonderful place to stay with a gorgeous view!!

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous view from atop a mountain! The hot tub and amenities were perfect, and we even received Christmas gifts from our hosts! How special that was! There is a steep driveway which might make it difficult to maneuver up and down it in freezing conditions, but lucky for us, it did not snow. Just perfect!

A perfect mountain-top getaway

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable views surround you. You walk through a garden of lichen-painted boulders hewn through eons of geologic time. See BOTH sunrise and sunset from your decks; later relax in a Jacuzzi under a startling sky free of haze or light pollution. Inside, every need is anticipated. Sleep comfortably in complete silence, and awake to bird sounds only. Watch a hawk soaring in the breeze...

We did...and we'll be back...

Amazing Views and Hospitality at this Mountaintop Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this Hot Springs Village home over New Year's. Everything was clean and in order, and there was a lovely gift basket of coffees, cookies, chocolates, nuts, and popcorn waiting for us (along with holiday decorations). The hot tub was warm and ready to enjoy, and with the views and fireplace, I can't imagine a better spot to nestle in during a cold spell and simply relax.

True to other reviews, the driveway is notably steep with boulders on both sides. Depending on your vehicle, you may or may not be able to see the rocks as you ascend, so it might be good to have someone direct you up and down as needed. There is a parking spot down by the road, so if you only have 1 car, it may be best to park down there. But the parking scenario is certainly worth the amazing mountaintop views.

We'd love to come back during the summer to explore the trails and lakes in the future!
