Home Sweet Home!
Hot Springs Village stretches across 26,000 acres of the Ouachita Mountains, a perfect place to get back to nature and enjoy the great outdoors. Few communities offer the diversity of lifestyles you can find here from lakeside living to homes with golf course or ridgeline views. There is a wide assortment of affordable housing including townhomes, houses and lots.
Hot Springs Village has been recognized as a “Top 100 Master-Planned Community” by Where to Retire magazine and as one of the top three “retirement hot spots” in the country by Realty Trac.
Arkansas’s temperate weather, affordable cost of living and low property taxes are additional benefits. Plus, HSV has a safe, secure environment.
