“The place is misadvertised.”

When we read Bob's review on TripAdvisor it seems as if your going to an exclusive island on Lake Hamilton. It turns out you are staying on the bottom floor of their thin floored home. You could hear everything. Although Bob was nice and very accommodating it wasn't what we were expecting. The house was not furnished with enough amenities. Even though the home is older it had a musty smell and was also not clean enough for the price paid to stay a night which was $250.00 . After we got home from the trip I got a weird rash and had it for about two weeks.This is the first time I have ever had any reaction from staying somewhere. Next time will stay at a exclusive resort for that price. Just thought I would share this tid bit of info before someone misread or understood the advertisement like we did.

Management Response
27 Jun 2018
I'll just say to future travelers: Please read all our reviews. We have many repeat visitors. One dad told me personally. Bob, I told my children I would take them anywhere of their choice, their reply was, we want to go back to Fantasy Island. That was just this summer. We have 2-1/4 acres, 1100 ft of shoreline, when you pay to stay, its all yours.
Our Sincere Thanks
Bob J. and Pauline Cotnam - proud owners of Fantasy Island.

From start to finish, our time spent there was 10 out of 10. There is really nothing that could be improved upon. You can tell he has put a lot of time into making sure his guest are comfortable and have everything they need... and then some..... to make their time spent there relaxing and enjoyable. He had everything there we could have possibly needed. Furthermore, as we were arriving later than previously planned, upon notifying him, we were told," the heat was on for you, house unlocked and key on table and he would see us in the morning". It felt as though we were there visiting family. I guess I should mention that the beds were comfortable,plenty of towels, etc., kitchen well stocked for those that want to cook, everything clean and fresh, and he is just the nicest man you would ever want to meet...I cannot imagine staying anywhere other than Fantasy Island when we visit Hot Springs.

“Fantasy Island made for the perfect weekend!”

We were in Hot Spring for a family reunion - myself, my husband, older son, preteen daughter and her friend. Fantasy Island was the perfect place to stay and was enjoyed by all! Beautiful property! We took advantage of the volleyball court, the paddle boats, the fire pit on the island and the boat for a day of tubing and fun on the lake. We had several family reunion activities that took us away from the house, but we could have spent the entire weekend right there and had a great time! Bob and his wife are wonderful hosts and they did everything they could to make sure we were comfortable. And they had great recommendations for places to go in town and good places to eat. We will absolutely be back again with many more friends in tow!

“Great get away for families with kids!”

Great place for up to family of 5 to get away from it all. We were able to play volleyball, kickball, and fish. We rented his boat and had lots of fun! We used the firepit and roasted s'mores and dinner. The place has really nice bathrooms and a nice overall feel. We plan on going back in the summer.

“Not clean”

Did not realize this rental was part of the owners home. We could hear the owners walk and sneeze upstairs. They charge a $60 cleaning fee yet the place was dirty on arrival. Black mold all in shower, someone's dirty socks and other trash under couch. Bed mattress old and
uncomfortable. Added a second bathroom(one w mold) and couldn't use because of the horrible smell. The cabinet doors in kitchen had spills that were never wiped clean. Bathroom door looked like someone poured a coke down it and never wiped clean. not enough seating in living area. The man is nice but def needs a thorough cleaning, fresh paint, and a few better furniture pieces. The outside is nice and directly on lake. Overall, unsatisfied with stay, felt like I needed a good bath and couldn't wait to get home!
