Newly Renovated Lakefront Property! 2 boat slips, 3 Story Deck, Outdoor TV

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, + Outdoor shower (Sleeps 8 comfortably in beds)

Welcome to A Shore Thing! Originally built in the 1940's, this historic home has recently undergone a massive renovation inside & out that was completed in February 2013. It has an open floor plan, and has been updated to modern standards, with all the decorative touches you would love to see in a vacation home. Outside you can park your boat in one of our two boat slips, fish off the boardwalk, or have dinner with friends & family on whatever level of beautiful deck you choose!

Given the fact that it is a historic home, a few features of this house are a little different than what most of us may expect in a place today. Please note: All bedrooms are upstairs, the main bathroom is downstairs, and a small bathroom is upstairs. ‘A Shore Thing’ features a lakefront master bedroom containing French doors that lead to a wonderful deck that’s just perfect for sipping a drink and watching the sun rise & set over Lake Hamilton. This room is also equipped with a king size bed & LCD TV for your viewing pleasure. In the second and third bedrooms you will find queen size beds & LCD televisions. We also have a sleeper sofa in the living room allowing two more guests to comfortably sleep in the home. The living area is equipped with Wi-Fi and surround throughout the home & outdoors.

This lakefront property is a piece of Hot Springs history, as it is part of the very first resort on Lake Hamilton. Many years ago there was an underground casino (when gambling was ‘illegal’) inside of our neighbors home, and gangsters such as Al Capone were known to frequent here.



If you must cancel your reservation, please contact us at least 30 days in advance. Cancellations less than 30 days in advance will forfeit the entire prepayment amount – No exceptions. Please note that reservations made less than 30 days prior to arrival will immediately be subject to this non-refundability. For the reasons stated above, we highly recommend purchasing trip insurance that can possibly help you recover part or all of your payments should you have to cancel your trip.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at A Shore Thing. Everything was so clean and comfortable. The patios are amazing. The only problem we had was parking a full sided SUV in either of the spots. The space was small and mostly blocked by the neighbors' vehicles.

Loving the Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. The master bedroom, decks, and entertaining areas were awesome. Loved that there was a television, grill and bar on the deck. Deck was great for gathering and playing games, chatting, watching games, listening to music and enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery.

Perfect for our needs.

A Shore Thing offered the perfect set up for five sisters to enjoy quality time together. The decks were wonderful gathering spots for early morning coffee and late night cocktails.

Great Lake Retreat

  • 5 of 5

An awesome retreat! This home is absolutely beautiful. Enjoyed the three (3) decks, which gave an awesome view of the lake. Enjoyed cooking out on the large grill with music, television and seating for everyone. Nicely located away from traffic, but close enough for quick drives to shop or entertainment. Only a few minutes from downtown... Each room was beautifully decorated, but gave you the feeling of home. Very clean and comfortable. Access to the lake was great and also a beautiful pool. Owners of this property were absolutely a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend this property to anyone. So enjoyable!!!!!

'A Shore Thing' is centrally located on the main channel of Lake Hamilton. A public boat ramp is right down the road at Hill Wheatley Park. Marineland, a full service marina, is directly across the cove (slightly more than a stone's throw away). The Hot Springs Regional Airport, Harvest Foods, Walgreens, Kroger, Wal-Mart, McClard's, Smokin' N Style, Hawgs Pizza, Sonic, and McDonald's are all a few minutes from 'A Shore Thing.' Scenic downtown Hot Springs, and its wonderful art galleries, spas, shopping, and fun restaurants such as Fat Jack's, Rolando's, and the Brau Haus are less 10 minutes away, as well as fabulous racing at Oaklawn Park.
