About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Why The Owner chose Hot Springs

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.

Pure relaxation - a weekend family paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and welcoming. Felt like home away from home. Setting is beautiful and environment is peaceful. Owner Captain Craig checked on us as soon as we arrived to ensure we were comfortable and knew where everything was. I will definitely book here again.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a hidden gem for sure! The house itself is hidden from the road, down the tight little driveway, a perfect location for a nice family get away. The lake view from the living room and kitchen, even from the bathroom is amazing. Simply beautiful. The house was perfect for the 4 of us and a friend to sleep comfortably, hang out with ample space and great amenities. The beds were comfortable, enough towels to keep us dry for weeks and the kitchen well supplied with anything one may need. I loved the house, the location and the convenience of town being close but you would never know from the house. This is so far, my favorite place we have stayed and would absolutely stay again. Only negatives are the shower heads are a little short for taller folks and the step down from the kitchen and the bedrooms can be dangerous when you forget it's there in the middle of the night :) Oh, and the railing on the back balcony, definitely don't count on it to catch a fall or support leaning on it, could be reinforced, but it worked fine for us. No issue.

The owners were great and so easy to deal with. Prompt answers to emails or texts and information provided to ensure a smooth transaction and stay. The property was in great shape with nice plants and grasses, the trees are awesome. The house itself, very clean and very well maintained. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your house!

Beautiful view of the lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! It was perfect for what we wanted for the weekend. We wanted to be close to the horse races, shopping, and restaurants but stay in a nice quiet neighborhood with a great view of the lake and this house delivered that.

Although the house was older, it had nice decks, hardwood floors, and was very clean and provided lots of towels( a plus)!!!

My brother in law enjoyed fishing down at the dock. Craig and Sharon, the owners, were helpful at answering our questions and prompt to returning phone calls and answering emails. Thank you for sharing your home!!!!!

We had a great relaxing time at the Captain's house. Fishing wasn't so good but that was ok. House had beautiful view of lake but could not see the sunset to the west due to the high trees bordering the neighbors house.

Best view ever

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay at this home. Very nice neighborhood and it did have the VERY best VIEW from anywhere in the home! Well worth the price. Only exception is all the stairs and the parents had trouble with the stairs, they are 70 years old..loved having a place for our boat...Hot Springs is a wonderful place.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We realize there are a lot of stairs that can be difficult for some. We are concerned about your comment about cleanliness as we are always complimented about how clean the house is. We personally clean after every tenant leaves and if we are missing something we would appreciate knowing what it is. Thanks.
