It's almost finished! Coming this March, Catherine’s Landing, an RVC Outdoor Destination will be open for business. The resort is located in Hot Springs, Arkansas, on one mile of water frontage on Lake Catherine and is the only outdoor property of its kind in the state and region. After a year of planning and construction, the anticipated Catherine’s Landing will be “your ideal natural environment mixed with your favorite hotel experience,” setting it apart from anything of its kind.
Catherine's Landing is an ideal place for race season visitors to stay because Oaklawn is only ten minutes away. The resort has a variety of accommodations for guests to choose from, something that differentiates it from resorts or hotels that follow a simple single-option style of lodging. One option is an RV site with full hook-ups, 50 amp service, and cable. Or, guests can be treated to a “home away from home” with one of the furnished RVC Resort Cottages, all of which include a loft, washer/dryer, dishwasher, and flat screen TV. If a guest chooses to go with a more unique and uncommon option, they can stay in a yurt – a modern, round, tent-like structure with wooden floors, windows, skylights, beds with fresh linens, and heating and air conditioning. Rates start at $40 for RV sites, $120 for Resort Cottages, and $36 for yurts per night.
Catherine’s Landing encompasses an already beautiful environment and will offer uncommon amenities, most of which are found at a five star hotel. It is not to be confused with a campground, RV Park, or state park. Amenities at Catherine’s Landing include community lodge with coffee, beer and wine bar, convenience store, fitness center, concierge service, hiking and nature trails, game room, water access and boat rentals, and much more.
Catherine’s Landing is located on the Humphreys Dairy property and is the first hospitality development that Hot Springs has seen for many years. The main reason for choosing to build a resort in this area is Lake Catherine, which is already a destination in itself. There will be a boat ramp and dock at Catherine’s Landing as well as available pontoon boats. In addition, the location to surrounding attractions such as Garvan Gardens, the Bath House Row in the historic district of Hot Springs, and the horse races at Oaklawn were other reasons for choosing this location.
In the springtime, the resort will host an “open for celebration” event. More details will come later.
