Why Mark Buhrow chose Lake Hamilton
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. This cottage is our favorite because of the proximity to the lake (about 5 feet) and the sunrise and sunset view from the deck.
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. The swim area is perfect for lake swimming because it is shallow at the shore and gradually gets deeper as you go out. The sunset from the covered deck is a show stopper!

Mother’s Day getaway
This was the perfect getaway during the pandemic. Being right on the lake, the cottage is very relaxing and peaceful. My wife is an ICU nurse working with Covid patients and needed some serious stress relief! This was “just what the doctor ordered”. Mark and Gigi are wonderful hosts and very accommodating. And they are just good people. We will be staying here again, very soon.
Great house, beautiful lake view
We came to the Hot Springs area for a celebration of life service. The house was very nice with a great kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The communal areas were super comfortable and convenient, and we especially loved the porch and the fact that the house is located directly on the lack, which is very beautiful. The downsides are the horribly maintained and steep driveway used to access the property (doable, but not fun) and the one bathroom that is very tiny/narrow (just a bit wider than shoulder width), There’s a great washer and dryer, but unfortunately the owner doesn’t provide soap (or shampoo for the showers), which was unusual in our rental experience. Not a deal killer, but would have liked to have had this explained in the listing so we could bring our own. No hairdryer was provided either. We would stay here again, even so, as the house itself is great.
Overall was okay ... I feel the place could be cleaner... the yard needed mowed the day we arrived but was mowed 2 days later while we were there .... I suggest bug spray mosquitoes are bad in the evening... an there were ants in the kitchen.... I emailed the owners an they were very responsive.... I feel the owners could do a lot better by getting a new cleaner.... an if you go be sure an take your own shampoo An soap an hair dryer.... I really appreciate the owners an I feel the matters will be taking care of .... but in their defense I am a little ocd .... ...... I would recommend... staying as I stated I think the owners will take care in making sure things are taken care of.
The photos don’t do justice for this property. The location is great, the view is amazing, and the home is perfect for a quick getaway. Gigi and Mark were always quick to respond to any questions. It was our first time to the Hot Springs area, and we are definitely coming back. Will stay in this home again as the location was so great.
Perfect size for my daughter and I. We enjoyed the both the sunrise and sunsets from the deck. The easy access to the lake was just what we needed.
