we purchased this home for a charming weekend getaway and love to share it.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996
Hot springs is a fun place all year long. Horse racing, galleries and arts festivals, hiking, and water sports.
We love to sit on the porch with friends, cook, fish, and swim. In winter we enjoy watching for eagles over the lake and reading by the fireplace in the evenings.
Owners Larry and Joy have really spiffed this place up. New roof, paint and windows have it looking like a million bucks. And that's just the house. The grounds are beautiful with natural landscaping, always something blooming! This spot on the lake can't be beat. It's a lake cottage, not a luxurious house, but that's what lake life is about!! I wouldn't stay any other place on Lake Hamilton. This is a one in a million gem and definitely a find that I probably shouldn't tell everyone about!! Joy and Larry are also always available if you have any questions or concerns. We found the place extremely clean, including the windows which afforded such fantastic views. Thanks for having us, and yeah we'll be back again ASAP!!
My husband selected this lake home for a short vacation get away. We found a few problems that other renters should know about. 1) the house really needed a thorough cleaning. There looked to be food spots on the walls of the kitchen. There were cobwebs on the ceiling. The refrigerator had some food in it that should have been tossed, i.e. meat. The leather sofa had a bad smell. The bathroom ceiling over the tub/shower looked to have some mold & mildew starting. 2) There were a lot of ants crawling on the outside of the kitchen door 3) There was an opening at the bottom of the kitchen door where bugs, etc could come in from the outside. 4) there is a significantly steep incline from the road down to the house...possibly a 50 degree angle. It was very hard walking up & down this incline and going up and coming down in the car. 5) on our first night there was loud noise and singing thru the night at the house next to us. It was hard to get to sleep.
On the upside, the outside features of the house were nice, i.e. the patio/deck, the docks by the water, all of the outside seating available and the 3 season porch.
This place is EXACTLY as described online., even better in my opinion. This place is beyond my expectation. Sunsets r beautiful.. Has everything a person would need.. I would most definitely recommend this place.. My favorite place to eat was Mr. whiskers. If I could suggest anything to improve.. It would be for the owner to put a memory foam topper are a egg shell crate on bed in purple room. I WILL BE BACK!!!
This house is the quintessential lake cottage. The house is so charming, with a wonderful screened in porch which affords million dollar views of beautiful Lake Hamilton! We were there for Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed seeing all of the activity on the lake. The setting is very peaceful and tranquil, but only a short drive away (literally less than five minutes) is a brand new grocery store. Just a few minutes further and you're back in town. We had stayed before at other properties on the lake which were equally beautiful, but were a pain to get to! This is easy and convenient. It was such a pleasure to work with the owners, Joy and Larry. They were always accessible when we were asking questions regarding what to do, restaurant recommendations, etc. I would hope that we could come back every year to enjoy this beautiful lake cottage!
The property is ideally situated on a channel of Lake Hamilton and the availaibility of a boat dock is convenient. Landscaping and screened in porch are nice touches. However, the property is starting to show its age and is in need of a deep cleaning and new mattresses. There is no wifi available. We took our senior mom with us. While she enjoyed her stay, I would not recommend the property for seniors due to the steep incline and steps down to the water.
We stayed 6 nights and had such a good time at this home. I say home because it felt like I was home. It was nicely decorated and very comfortable. We had everything we needed with a roomy deck by the house and a lower deck on the water. We lived on the screened in porch so the rain did not faze us one bit. I plan to return here in the future. Easy drive to the local store and into Hot Springs.
Relax by the lake, swim, enjoy fireplace in the winter.
