Relax and get away from it all in the Shore House! This house is so refreshing. It offers a bright and cheery lake house atmosphere with views of Lake Hamilton from every window in the great room. The great room--living, dining and kitchen are all open to each other and boast vaulted ceilings, knotty pine walls and tile floors. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated with crisp linens and a lake house theme. The covered deck spans the length of the house and sits literally feet away from the lake. A child friendly swimming area is steps from the front door. The Shore House has a great swim dock which has a place to tie up one boat. You will see sunrise and sunset from the deck. Beautiful!

The Shore House is conveniently located to Hot Springs National Park (8 miles) and is near to shopping malls, grocery stores and all of Hot Springs attractions.

About Mark Buhrow

Captain Mark and Gigi Buhrow owned and operated the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat from 1983 to 2016. They have four children and four grandchildren. Hot Springs has been home to us for over 30 years.

Mark Buhrow purchased this house in 2001

Why Mark Buhrow chose Arkansas

We built the Shore House as an investment property. We actually love this home so much that when it is available we booked it for ourselves and enjoy all that it has to offer. I know this is not unusual for property owners to stay in their vacation rental homes, but it is for us because we actually live directly across the lake.

What makes this house unique

The things we love most about the Shore House is how bright and refreshing it is. The covered deck is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee and a book. We love the swim area and enjoy the fact that the house is so close to the lake.

This was a great little cabin on the water. Very clean, the amenities were plentiful. Check-in procedures were easy. We even got to check-in a little earlier than expected! The owners are from the area, and very accommodating!

Location can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

Great little house, right on the lake, close to a bunch of sights and shops - we enjoyed it!

Just have to be careful if you have pets since the area isn't fully fenced in and you're right next to condos and other cabins with dogs off-leash

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My Mother and I loved the Shore House on Lake Hamilton. It was so nice and quite, calming and relaxing. There was a little hiccup when we first arrived, but Gigi made it right. Everything was absolutely wonderful. We loved sitting out on the deck and watching the sunrise in the morning and the sunset in the evenings. Just being near the water was great. We always take our dog with us on vacation, and this was a wonderful place for her as well. Hot Springs was fun. There was a lot of things to do and everything was easy to find. We will definitely recommend Hot Springs to any of our friends looking for a place to go on vacation, and we will definitely recommend the Shore House on Lake Hamilton or one of your other properties if they are looking for a place to stay. We absolutely loved everything about it!!!!
