'THE CAPTAIN'S COTTAGE' ON LAKE HAMILTON

Hot Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Join us on Lake Hamilton in our cozy 'Captain's Cottage.' This quaint lake house is the perfect retreat for honeymooners, a couples getaway or a family of six. The kitchen, dining and living room are all open to each other creating a bright and sunny atmosphere. There are many large windows which allow a lake view from every room in the house. The clean and crisp bedrooms offer a reminiscent feeling of your grandmother's favorite quilt.

Just steps away from the lake, you are sure to enjoy swimming, sunning, fishing, bird and boat watching and all of the activities that lend itself to lake living. The house has a great swim area, a large swim dock and a deck on the front of the house that faces the lake. You don't want to miss the sunrises and sunsets from the deck of the Captain's House. They are breathtaking!

Hot Springs National Park has been known as Arkansas' premiere resort town since Hernando Desoto. (That's a long time!) Attractions to see include: the National Park, Magic Springs Amusement and Water Park, The Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat, Garvan Woodland Gardens, Oaklawn Race Track and Casino, Mid America Science Museum, The Bathhouse Show, etc...The list goes on and on. Hot Springs is also a great place take a bath and massage, hike, horseback ride, shop, golf, eat--great restaurants, and of course.....relax.

We hope to see you soon at the 'Captain's Cottage'

Sincerely, Captain Mark and Gigi Buhrow

Mark and Gigi Buhrow have owned the Captain's Cottage for almost 20 years. We also own and operate the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat on Lake Hamilton and Gilligan's Lakeside Cafe. The Belle is a 225 passenger riverboat with sails Lake Hamilton for lunch, dinner and sight-seeing cruises. This is where the name 'Captain's Cottage comes from....Mark is a riverboat captain. Gilligan's is a lunch and dinner cafe located at the Belle Riverboat dock. Boaters, tourist and locals enjoy the Belle and Gilligan's. Mark and Gigi have four children and three grandchildren. They have lived in Hot Springs for over 25 years and love the relaxed atmosphere.

Captain Mark Buhrow purchased this house in 1992

Hot Springs is a great tourist town and buying the Captain's Cottage just seemed like a fun and smart investment.

We actually live right across the lake from our cottage and don't haven't really stayed there. Maybe we should try it sometime. Sounds like a good idea.

Clean and served us well

  • 4 of 5
We arrived and picked up our key with no trouble. When we arrived at the house there was dog poop (possibly Goose) everywhere on the ground. When we walked inside the house smelled old and stale but that was nothing a candle couldn't fix. It was clean and everything worked. We had a good weekend and this was a great place to hang out hat at night.

Nice stay

  • 4 of 5
The location is perfect, right at the lake. Kids had fun swimming in the lake. We loved the firm mattress. Kitchen is well-equipped. My wife had an allergy issue in the house -- maybe the sofas? Overall, very nice stay. Thanks to Mark and Gigi.

We loved staying here! The windows had just been replaced and some work done on the cottage and it was so comfortable and we loved the convenience to everything too. Our grandson loved the dock, as he spent hours out there practicing his casting techniques! It didn't hurt that we had perfect weather, but the view was absolutely wonderful. Everything we could possibly need was in the kitchen and we welcomed family for visits and everyone was so impressed with this cozy and very tastefully decorated little piece of paradise. We will definitely stay here again! What a treasure if you are visiting Hot Springs - one of our favorite places!

Great location

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Captain's cottage for 2 nights over a weekend in August. Overall, it was a great time. The inside of the place was overall very clean and comfortable. The exterior needs some work cosmetically, but is sufficient enough for a place to crash. The dock is nice, and is fairly shallow off the pier (maybe 4 feet). The bottom is very rocky and has bricks and other things, so we would dive shallow and float as to not cut our feet on the rocky bottom. There are also weeds on the bottom which was kind of gross on your feet to walk through (bothered wife more so than myself). Overall, this isn't the "perfect" place to swim off the dock, but it sufficed! The location was great...right off of Central Avenue. Mark and Gigi were very easy to work with and allowed us to check in early as it was empty the day before our arrival. Overall in spite of the bit of a run-down look of the exterior, this place was nice and a great location to rent for a weekend. Would recommend.

Lake Hamilton Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We go to Lake Hamilton at least once a year and try to get a different place each time. The Captains Cottage was very cozy and the perfect location for us and our two friends. The views and the lake being 20 feet away from the cottage made it perfect. Pick up and drop off of the cottage keys were right across the main road and made it very easy for check-in and out. The photos were accurate and Gigi and Mark answered all of our questions and made it a comfortable rental experience.

Thank You,
Jon + Shalann

Owner's Response: The Captain's Cottage is in need of a face lift on the exterior and is going to get one in October. We met with a builder yesterday, who is going to replace all the exterior windows, which will be wonderful. (Hurricane Issac blew out one in the storm). We have also hired a painter who is going to paint the entire exterior and interior. I am very excited about the improvements and agree it is time. We have been so booked this summer that there really wasn't a two week window where we could get in and work. Hope you will come back and see the imporvements. Gigi
