About Sharon & Craig

I moved to Hot Springs in 1983 when, along with my family, I relocated the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat from Iowa and continue to own and pilot the boat on dinner and sightseeing cruises on Lake Hamilton. During hunting season I am up a tree, literally, waiting for the trophy buck to walk by. Athletics plays a large role in my life. I participate in softball and basketball leagues and have won several medals in the Senior Olympics. I have two daughters and two granddaughters living in the Hot Springs area.

Sharon & Craig purchased this house in 1995

Why Sharon & Craig chose Arkansas

My family and I lived in this home for 15 years prior to making it a vacation rental and loved every day spent there. The home is located on an island with one road in and out keeping traffic to a minimum, making it inviting to take a walk or jog. It is located about 5 miles from the racetrack and 7 miles from the downtown area. Other attractions include Magic Springs and Crystal Falls amusement and water park, Fordyce Bath House which the U.S. Government spent $5.5 million restoring to its original condition (be sure to take the free tour) and several museums and art galleries.

What makes this house unique

The property is directly on the lake's main channel. The home is actually on an island making it quiet and secluded yet close to shopping, restaurants and attractions.

Great for a bachelor party!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a bachelor party last summer, and we loved it! Perfect location and plenty of space for a bunch of wild and crazy guys. The owners were very easy to work with. They brought us a cooler full of ice, which I thought was a nice touch. They were also very good about getting us our deposit back quickly, even though we might have given them reason to deduct some (remember it was a bachelor party). I couldn't recommend this place enough!

Great Stay on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

We love the Captain's Retreat. Awesome location, amazing setting right on the lake, killer view. It has everything we need. We stay here every year for the races, but I imagine it is even better for summertime. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

Nice view of the lake

  • 5 of 5

I was a little apprehensive about the different floor levels mentioned by others because my 81 year old father was with us, but he managed them just fine. We were there for our son's wedding in the area and this was a good location to unwind. Our black lab loved being able to get into the water and the location was nice and quiet. Very clean.
