Upon first entering the house you will say what I and everyone else has said, 'oh my gosh what a view.' Split level home located on the main channel of Lake Hamilton. Spectacular lake view from the living room, master bedroom and 100' lake frontage. The house has a covered dock for boating, swimming and fishing. Relax on the lower level deck overlooking the lake and grill your favorite foods or enjoy a quiet evening watching the breathtaking sunsets from the upper level balcony which is easily accessible from the living room with no steps involved.
Enjoy the lake view from the king size bed in the Master Bedroom on the main level. Second bedroom on the main level boasts antique EastLake furniture originally brought out west on a wagon train.
Beautiful hardwood floors throughout the main level of the home. Kitchen, dining room, living room and full bathroom are located on main level.
The lower level can be a separate living area for watching TV and enjoying the lake view or a third bedroom with a queen size sofa bed and bunk beds for the kids and a full bathroom with separate powder room.
Quiet and secluded, centrally located close to shopping, dining and entertainment. Be sure to visit Bath House Row located in historic downtown Hot Springs National Park and Oaklawn Park racetrack and gaming center.

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
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.
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.
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!
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.
Loved the property overall. great backyard for our dog to exercise and right on the water. Plenty of room in the house and very clean. we loved it.
Had everything we needed for a good place to gather with family. Would return if going to Hot Springs area.
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.
Other Activities: horse racing, casino.
