    A Hide-Away for a Week


    The resort is an independent/time-share and real estate development. I am not aware of any permnent retirees, but there may be some. The resort offers boat piers in front of many units, a small beach, indoor (heated ) pool and 2 outdoor pools, game room and playground. The accomodations are air-conditioned, spacious tastefully furnished and decorated. Each unit is supplied with an array of dishes, utensils, appliances TV's x2, VHS,CD player and much more. The only internet hookups are at the office. Many units have hot tubs. Our 2 units each had 1 bedroom and 2 baths (1 with shower). The living room sofa opened intoa comfortable double bed, thus 4 adults were accomodated. These are standard time-share accomodations in the U.S. ( and elsewhere?)There was a restaurant on the grounds with limited hours.

    Unique Quality: Ample restful facilities for a multiple family vacation. Absolute quiet.Even the children relaxed.

    Directions: East off State 289 at Horseshoe Bend and rt on S. Ivory Lane, Horseshoe Bend,AR 72512

The Aging Tourist

"Slowing Down"

What does a REAL sightseer do when they have grandchildren that are not old enough to participate in independent travel( and the grandparents may be too old also)? Go to a "vacation resort" where incremental "outings" will suffice. This was our second attempt. Our choice was tempered by logistics (a place within 1 days travel for each of the widely separated family units). We first chose Sevierville,Tenn. near the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. (Our writeup will come in the future).It was succeesful and so we decided upon Horseshoe Bend. Work imperatives reduced our number to3. We all like Arkansas (it was our home state together for 12 years). Once again we obtained accomodations via Time Share mechanism (in this case RCI). The resort was Crown Point Resort.

"Things to Do."

The resort is on Crown Point Lake (650 acres), a lake of modest size in the very North Central part of Arkansas at the edge of the Ozarks. It is 150 miles from Little Rock (2+ hours of not difficult drive). There are only three major attractions in the area !) The town of Mountain View with itsrural music and crafts, 2) Blanchard Caverns perhaps the largest in the world and 3)trout fishing from a boat on the Red or White Rivers (or other streams?) Beyond these we had to content ourselves with the warmth of family and creature comforts that the resort supplied.


We rented 2 one-bedroom units in a quadruple unit building. Although both units had identical kitchen units the upper one had a hot-tub and a balcony with a fine view and except for some TV viewing and gaming we congregated there. (We will describe the facilities in detail in a where to stay Tip). There is a marina about 2 miles off on the lake and one of our sons (a part-time professional fisherman) put his power boat in and moored it at our dock out front. Several children joined in fishihg from the pier-dock ad lib. We used the boat for riding around mostly since we are not water sports enthusiasts. The avid fishermen also fished here for bass but did not keep them for eating.

    My husband, a picky retired U.S. Army Colonel, and I have chosen Horseshoe Bend Timeshares as our favorite. There are so many reasons, but I'll try to list them all.
    1. Staff courteous, helpful, & efficient. Hello Brandon, Dear. 2. The grounds and units are impeccable. The lake, fishing, and the sunrises and sunsets. 3. The indoor pool, hot tub, and water aerobics! 4. The huge recreation room with the best entertainment. Kareoke night, and bingo. Plus, the best Elvis Impersonator show!
    I'm sure there is much more, but my senior brain has temporarily forgotten the rest. We leave on the 19th of this month for a 4 week stay! I'm so excited and happy to be going back to the place I would like to call my home.
    You have to stay there, you won't be disappointed.
