Hot Springs Village Real Estate Essentials


Hot Springs Village is located 15 miles north of Hot Springs, and is the largest gated community in the country, encompassing more than 26,000 acres. Low taxes and the average home costing less than $100/sf the community is surprisingly affordable. When combined with the access to amenities in the community, and a short distance from both Hot Springs and the Little Rock Metropolitan Area, the Village is perfectly located.

Notable Charm

A picturesque setting in the beautiful Ouachita Mountains, the 26,000 acres that make up the community has 11 recreational lakes, 9 golf courses with 171 holes, and more than 30 miles of trails. Hot Springs Village is the perfect place for the weekend boater, adventuring hiker, and avid golfer to make their home. 


In 1970, real estate developer John A. Cooper chose to take 20,000 acres of land in the Ouachita Mountains and turn it into a retirement community. Modeling the development after two previously successful planned communities, Cherokee Village and Bella Vista, Cooper got to work creating what would become Hot Springs Village. Today many retirees find that the community is a perfect place to call home, though Hot Springs Village is not just a retirement community. Families, couples, and singles of all ages live, work, and play here!
