Hard to believe but we are only a little over a month from the Memorial holiday weekend.  It's time for lake life at Lake Ouachita in Hot Springs, Arkansas where you can actually stay overnight in a docked houseboat in your own private cove.

The 4 bedroom, 6 beds, one and a half bath, 54' houseboat sleeps up to 10 people and has everything you need to make that weekend or vacation stay one to remember. Imagine watching a beautiful sunset off the huge deck or hot tub. Relax on the deck sipping a cold one while you grill some burgers on the gas grill. You can even go for a swim right off the back or go hiking through the nearby wooded forests surrounded by the beauty of the lake. Ski Boats, Pontoons, kayaks, and Waverunner are available to rent just steps away for more adventure out on the lake. And when you get ready, Hot Springs National Park is only 30 minutes away. When you're done with your day, you can lie down in a comfy bed for a peaceful night of sleep as you hear the waves lapping against the boat. The gentle sway will most definitely rock you to sleep in this one-of-kind retreat away from all the hustle and bustle of city life. The surroundings, the extra services, cleanliness, as well as location, will guarantee you a great stay for you and your family or friends.

Several years ago, I had the opportunity to stay in a houseboat on Lake Ouachita and the experience was incredible. I highly recommend this to you if you have never done this before. Thumbs up!

Right now this Airbnb is running a May special until May 27. See pictures.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
