This is such a wonderful place to stay in Hot Springs! We loved the peaceful feel of the Lodge, the decor, the welcoming people we met. We stayed for 6 nights and were sad to leave. We enjoyed sitting outside looking at the beautiful view and there are comfortable common areas to sit inside as well. I had a delightful massage on site with Linda who was great! We also had a soak in one of the hot springs in town, ate at several good restaurants, and enjoyed shopping in the unique stores.

I attended a yoga retreat at the Laughing Heart Lodge and it was like medicine for my soul. The Lodge and grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The staff was friendly and the food was soooo good! I stayed in the Turtle Room and is was quite cozy with a beautiful view. Can't wait to go back!

We enjoyed a lovely three night stay in the Tranquility Room, which certainly lived up to its name. Our private bath was beautiful and luxurious. We were thrilled with our breakfast fare as there was a variety of food, it was fresh and absolutely delicious. Our hostesses even prepared scrambled eggs and biscuits for us! There was always a variety of hot tea available. The lodge itself is peaceful, serene and absolutely spotless. The grounds are everything you could want in a mountain retreat, beautiful and well-kept. This was a tremendous value--we felt pampered and valued and even got to enjoy an amazing yoga class on our last day! The Hostel Manager, Chuck, offered us directions and tips that were a tremendous help and enhanced our enjoyment of all that Hot Springs has to offer. We felt right at home and were delighted to find new friends in such a beautiful location.

As guests in this beautiful large home, you feel more like you are living there than just a temporary guest. The service is gracious and highly accommodating, and the place is within an easy walk of town. Highly recommended.
