Hot Springs house description

This one acre shaded lot is ideal for your family to relax. Located close to the cold water dam, no one can ever build across from us because it is Ouachita National Forest Wildlife Reserve lands. We commonly see deer, otter, beavers, bald eagles, and all kinds of water fowl. This unique area allows you to fish for trout all year round and we have seen 40 pound striper too. You can also spear-fish for Walleye.

Two bedrooms have king size beds and the bunk room has two twin over full futon beds. Linens are nice, like the ones you have at home and the home is decorated lovely, like you would your personal home. Although we have no video games there, we have lots of card & board games. If you don't feel that you can get completely away from civilization, we also provide Apple TV, wi-fi, and Magic Jack. We even have lots of VHS tapes that are mostly family friendly. :)

We have a space to temporarily tie up your boat so that you can take off down the lake to waterski, swim, tube or wake board. You can even use our Big Mable (2 person) or Super Mable (3 person) tubes so you don't have to lug your own down here.

After a long day on the lake, you can come to the comforts of home with a fully stocked kitchen. We have all glassware, dishes, pots & pans, spices, even a crockpot. We also provide an electric smoker and small charcoal grill. You can relax by the fire pit even in the summer because (again our unique location), we have a cold mist/fog that rolls in off the river when Entergy generates cold water from Lake Ouachita. It is an amazing experience for sure. We even have extra blankets...because likely you will need them....even in JULY!

We are also less than 20 minutes away from the largest gated community golf courses in the United States, Hot Springs Village!

During Oaklawn racing season, you can trout fish early morning and late afternoon but spend the day just 20 minutes away at Oaklawn Race Track. They also now offer gaming and simulcasting for other national tracks. The 2015 live season begins on January 9 and continues through April 11.

                      Car: Necessary

                      We are located on Lake Hamilton within ten miles of Hot Springs, AR, which is home of the Hot Springs National Park, Oaklawn Horse Racing & Casinos and Garvan Woodland Gardens. We are five minutes from the first free boat launch access which is at the dam between Lake Ouachita and Lake Hamilton. To locals...we are at the cold water dam on the river. This affords trout fishing all year long off our 100 feet for lake front property. 40 pound Striper and Walleye are also available. No one will ever be across the lake from us, as this is Ouachita National Forest Wildlife reserve lands. We commonly see deer, otter, beaver, bald eagle, and all types of water fowl. In town, we also take advantage of many family activities such as mini-golf, laser tag, bumper boats, go-carts, Mid-America Museum, Historic Downtown Bath House Row with Gangster Museum & unique shopping, and Magic Springs Amusement & water park.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2009

                      About the owner: We purchased this home for ourselves and have appointed it as such. You will not be under-whelmed by the decoration or location. It is prime place to slow-down. We choose to unplug while we are there but still do have a few on the modern conveniences if you feel you can't get completely away from the office. There is probably more there stocked than most rentals. Our philosophy is need some, take some, have some, share some. We hope your family enjoys this house as much as ours!

                      Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
                      This is one of the most unique properties on the lake. You are on Lake Hamilton but literally five minutes from Lake Ouachita. At night there is a cool mist/fog that rolls in off the lake when Entergy generates. Because of this cold water from Lake Ouachita, you can trout fish all year long. Our boys caught their first trout in July our first year there!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This is only rental on Lake Hamilton where you can trout or striper fish and still be close enough to go to Oaklawn Races during the day. Racing season is January 9 through April 11. Trout and striper fishing is year round!
