Overview Bed & Breakfast on Lake Hamilton
Ranked #12 of 19 Hot Springs B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 June 2011

Linda is very nice, the house is clean and well kept, and the breakfast was great...however, this is Linda's house - which was a little weird and expensive for $140/night. This is not what my wife and I expected based on the advertised "bed and breakfast". We felt more like a boarder or visitor at my great aunt's house. The house is a ranch style 4 bedroom with a garage that has been converted into Linda's sleeping quarters. The view of the Lake is very nice and the house sits atop a hill which is very nice. Once we got past the fact that we were simply staying in Linda's house, we had fun with it and ended up enjoying ourselves. You just need to know what to expect when you get there...it is not what I would consider a traditional bed and breakfast.

Overview B&B's "Seabiscuit" room has a beautiful view of the lake and all the amenities. Owner Linda McKee and her dog Heidi helped make our celebration of our 42nd wedding anniversary a memorable one.

Our suite was fantastic with a lake view, there is a dock for swimming or fishing, a few decks with furniture yielding shade or no shade, a barbecue grill, pool table, and wet bar! 2 fireplaces, and a theater room, (we did not use these), a sun room upstairs, and several conversation pits made lounging and talking about the sights comfortable and enjoyable. Lots of resources and fun if the sun is shining or not!
Linda, our hostess, made us so comfortable and we felt like we were home! How friendly and helpful she is, and a great cook! We so enjoyed spending time with her, we almost did not want to get out and see the sights around town. Linda is so much fun to be with! And, her dog Heidi is such a good little welcoming committee of her own! For all of us who miss our dogs when we travel, Heidi is such a good little canine ambassador. I looked forward to Linda's smile each time we returned "home" to Overview B & B, and Heidi's tail wag of approval.
Great Stay ! We cannot wait to come back for Horse Racing Season this Jan - April!

Had a wonderful stay. Location is away from the traffic, but allowed easy access to Bathhouse row and various outdoor attractions that we visited. The facility was very clean, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and offered something different each morning. Linda, was very helpful and a great host.
We highly recommend this B&B to anyone that is going to the Hot Springs area and
is looking for a great place to stay.

This B&B is excellent. We wanted to get away for a weekend just to relax. Stayed in the seabiscut suite for two nights. The views of Lake Hamilton are awesome and it was wonderful to sit on the deck with a cup of coffee and watch the world wake up. Linda and Heidi took excellent care of us. The breakfast was very good both mornings as was our conversations with the innkeeper. We even took an evening boat ride on her boat. We will be back soon !!!!!

The serene view of the lake from the balcony off of the Seabiscuit Suite was amazing. Drinking coffee while watching the water ripple and listening to the birds was exactly what we needed to relax and let the stress ebb away. The suite was impeccably clean and the entire house was decorated beautifully with such care down to the last detail. Linda prepared the most amazing breakfasts and even took us to the barn area of the racetrack so that we could watch the horses work out. She and Heidi made sure that our every want was attended to (Heidi being the chief greeter and director of hospitality). This was one of the absolute best experiences I have ever had on a vacation.

Overview is a home that has been converted to a B&B. There are four suites, two of which are large. The location is very quiet, and our suite, Seabiscuit, had a small private access balcony with a wonderful unobstructed view of Lake Hamilton. The innkeeper, Linda, is attentive without being at all intrusive, warm and friendly, and willing to do anything in her reasonable power to accommodate her guests' wishes. She has a dachshund, Heidi, who is charming, friendly, and exceptionally well behaved. The breakfasts varied each of the three mornings we were there, and were tasty and ample. We loved the comfortable and "like home" atmosphere.
