The Captain's Cottage is a quaint fishing cottage that makes the perfect retreat for honeymooners, a couples getaway or a family up to 4. 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 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 truly breathtaking!

Hot Springs is a great tourist town and buying the Captain's Cottage just seemed like a fun and smart investment. We have been host to long term renters, weekenders and family and friends in our cottage by the lake.
We actually live right across the lake from our cottage and haven't really stayed there. Maybe we should try it sometime. Sounds like a good idea.
What a breath taking place and to think I found it on the internet. My son and I have been looking forward to this all summer and it is everything that we had hoped and then some. We will be back again and again!
My husband and I had a last minute get away for our 50th anniversary in the
mist of many on going family projects and work. It was absolutely beautiful
to be so near the water and see so many amazing views, specially the lights
on the water late in the evening and early morning. The geese and ducks were
great fun to watch also. We were quite comfortable, just what we needed for
a relaxing weekend. Gigi answered our questions quickly and we so appreciated
getting to bring our cat Spooky, she enjoyed it too. Thank you, for a lovely weekend, Bruce and Lynda Hume
The Captain's Cottage on Lake Hamilton was less than 50 feet from the water. The cottage was equipped with basic kitchen supplies. Washer and dryer was accessible - nice! Great view of the water from almost every window in the house. Geese and ducks swam to the pier.
My Husband and I found the Captain's Nest in an AR guide book called "Off the Beaten Path! The ability to reserve was seamless and the host couple so kind and accommodating. The cabin was only about 30 feet come beautiful Lake Hamilton. The deck faced the water so could have morning coffee and time to relax and de-stress from dailylife and work. We recommend it highly, as the amenities inside were just as pictured. Thank you Gigi and Captain Mark!
The Captains Cottage is a very nice, very roomy lakeside spot. we booked for an anniversary getaway and were very pleased. The cottage was clean and very nicely appointed. The location was very convenient to restaurants and shopping, downtown, although a little bit of a drive, also no problem getting to.
I will definitely book again!!
Owners were super nice and extremely accomodating. Small house was roomy enough for 6 people but only enough beds for 4 people or 2 couples. Nicely updated, clean inside even though outside was plain/simple looking. Right on Lake with a small dock for swimming or access to lake. Only few minutes to downtown and restaurants. Would definitely rent again.
Hot Springs is a charming town nestled in the Ouachita Mountains. It is the smallest national park in the United States and the only one that is engulfed by the city. Be sure to check out the many family attractions, lake activities, Garvan Woodland Gardens, live horse racing, casino and DON'T miss a scenic lunch or dinner cruise aboard the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat. (It is only 1 mile away from the cottage.)
