About Cris Salazar

Vrbo allows me to share my home and hospitality with wonderful visitors. As a realtor for over 15 years, I feel like an ambassador to people visiting or relocating to Hot Springs. It is my goal for guest to consider The Lake Estate as their home away from home.

Why Cris Salazar chose Hot Springs

I designed and built this 10,000 square foot residence as a private home, opening The Lake Estate after my sons went off to college. The property is secluded, yet convenient to all that Hot Springs has to offer. We are located on the shores of Lake Hamilton and minutes to dining, recreation and shopping.

What makes this house unique

As a premier “resort style” property, we offer several common areas on the property including a grand lobby, game-room, in-home theater, swimming pool, fishing dock plus five private acres.

The master suite makes the house even better

  • 5 of 5

This house was great, from the location in a cove on the lake to the gigantic master suite. We had 14 people in our party and the house accommodated us all. Thank you Cris!

Fun Times

  • 4 of 5

Let's start with the positives on this estate. We had five couples for the week, and this house was perfect for our needs. We had plenty of room for all of our guests and all of our activities. We brought a couple of boats with us, so the docks were probably the most used part of the property. The pool was very nice, and was a great gathering place away from the lake. Overall, we had a great time, and would rent this house again on a future trip.

Now I will let you know why it was only a four. The house could definitely use some basic upkeep. The first day there, I was in my toolbox 3 different times fixing things that had been rigged together, and not fixed properly, so having someone handy in the group helps. The owner never returned a phone call or an email prior to my arrival, so the fact that the house had been a little neglected did not surprise me. Also of note for future booked renters, a realtor showed up to show the house to potential buyers. The house is on the market. I would have a backup plan in case it sells!

To end on another positive, the house still only had one working pool cue, but we bought another one and left it. We spent a few late nights in the sports bar area..

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 4 star rating! It is rare that I respond to reviews. We have enjoyed opening our home as a vacation rental the past several years and we have been blessed with many great guest. Most, if not all, families have expressed to me personally, their overall satisfaction with our home, the property and our service. I must admit, I am confused by your comments, so I feel compelled to respond. The day of check in, I met you onsite and allowed you to check in early. In addition, I provided you with my personal cell phone number. (As I do all guest) I did receive one call from one of your guest about the central vacuum, and we quickly resolved it on the phone. I never received any further calls from you throughout your stay. I am unaware of any other issues you had with the property. In fact, I personally provided new pool sticks a few weeks earlier. As far as the Realtor showing, I sent you an email the day before and never heard back. We had a prospective buyer in town that was interested in vacation rental properties. Our guests do not need a backup plan based on someone looking at our property. We coordinate our activity including showings, repairs, etc. when the home is vacant, but with our summer season it does not always workout. In summary, we are very responsive owners and we strive to provide a great experience for our guest staying in our home and visiting Hot Springs. I am happy to hear you would stay with us in the future. Thanks again, we look forward to your return.

Perfect Couple's Weekend on Lake Hamilton

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property for a couple's weekend with five couples, and I couldn't be happier. The house is beautiful and HUGE, and never once did we ever feel on top of each other. The bedrooms were perfectly spaced out; it was almost as if we all had our own wings of the house. I was lucky enough to have the master suite - let's just say WOW. The weather was great with the exception of a few passing showers, but the covered outdoor space kept us dry. We rented a pontoon boat from Salty Dog one day and got to see Lake Hamilton from a different perspective - what a beautiful, clean lake! (And the boat rental place was great, too.) I couldn't be happier with my three nights at the property. My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.

Always Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th or 5th year staying at the Lake Estate, and we plan to return in 2016. The house is great, the owner is always helpful and the location is terrific. What more can you ask for?

Exquisite Home & Views

  • 5 of 5

This home is so large and exquisite that at first you may feel it is too grandeur but it will quickly feel quite homey and comfortable. I was with a small group but this home would easily accommodate a very large group. The views are amazing with ample windows to enjoy. It is not in the middle of the city but so very close to everything but with the added luxury of the home, the pool, the privacy and the lake. It is a great place for a group to gather all in one place for a vacation that is roomy enough to be comfortable. Even for a small group you cannot beat the value & luxury you receive renting from the Salazar's verses renting a hotel.
