Secluded in 200 acres of wooded privacy this log home has been a popular vacation rental for more than 5 years.
We have many guests who have been here several times because… they love it here!
You won’t find another vacation rental in the area with this much acreage… the ultimate in privacy!
In the words of country music artist Dwight Yoakam… you’ll feel like you’re a
thousand miles from nowhere”.
  Yet, you’ll find the town of Hot Springs (pop. 500+)  just 13 miles away to be at a slower pace, and laid-back.



In this forest-like setting, there is an absence of traffic, noise, and street lights. No thru road or other homes in view from Wilderness Lodge.
