Property description

Join us on Lake Hamilton in our Captain's Cottage.' This quaint fishing cottage is the perfect retreat for honeymooners, a couples getaway or a family up to 5. The kitchen, dining and living room are all open to each other creating a bright and sunny atmosphere. There are many large windows which allow a lake view from every room in the house. The crisp bedrooms offer a reminiscent feeling of your grandmother's favorite quilt.

Just steps away from the lake, you are sure to enjoy swimming, sunning, fishing, bird and boat watching and all of the activities that lend itself to lake living. The house has a great swim area, a large swim dock and a deck on the front of the house that faces the lake. You don't want to miss the sunrises and sunsets from the deck of the Captain's House. They are truly breathtaking!

Hot Springs National Park has been known as Arkansas' premiere resort town since Hernando Desoto. (That's a long time!) Attractions to see include: the National Park, Magic Springs Amusement and Water Park, The Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat, Garvan Woodland Gardens, Oaklawn Race Track and Casino, Mid America Science Museum, The Bathhouse Show, etc...The list goes on and on. Hot Springs is also a great place take a bath and massage, hike, horseback ride, shop, golf, eat--great restaurants, and of course.....relax.

We hope to see you soon at the 'Captain's Cottage'

Sincerely, Captain Mark and Gigi Buhrow

Hot Springs is a charming town nestled in the Ouachita Mountains. It is the smallest national park in the United States and the only one that is engulfed by the city. Be sure to check out the many family attractions, lake activities, Garvan Woodland Gardens, live horse racing, casino and DON'T miss a scenic lunch or dinner cruise aboard the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat. (It is only 1 mile away from the cottage.)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Mark and Gigi Buhrow have owned the Captain's Cottage for almost 20 years. We also own and operate the Belle of Hot Springs Riverboat on Lake Hamilton and Gilligan's Lakeside Cafe. The Belle is a 200 passenger riverboat with sails Lake Hamilton for lunch, dinner and sight-seeing cruises. This is where the name 'Captain's Cottage comes from....Mark is a riverboat captain. Gilligan's is a lunch and dinner cafe located at the Belle Riverboat dock. Boaters, tourist and locals enjoy the Belle and Gilligan's. Mark and Gigi have four children and three grandchildren. They have lived in Hot Springs for over 25 years and love the relaxed atmosphere.

Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
Hot Springs is a great tourist town and buying the Captain's Cottage just seemed like a fun and smart investment. We have been host to long term renters, weekenders and family and friends in our cottage by the lake.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We actually live right across the lake from our cottage and haven't really stayed there. Maybe we should try it sometime. Sounds like a good idea.
