Dogwood Point lake house is located 5 minutes from Central Avenue but is still secluded and privately located on the lake. It is nestled in the trees on a point overlooking the lake.
Our home is unique because it has a lakehouse/cabin feel. It has two living quarters. The den is original to the home and is built of cedar and has a native stone fireplace. The living room is more modern and the entire lake side wall is constructed of glass. Birds and wildlife are abundant. Enjoy the array of Dogwood trees and other plants and flowers native to this area. Boat/jet ski rental is available on the lake and we have a boat/swim dock and jet ski docks as well. We have everything you need to make it your home away from home.

Wonderful Experience at Dogwood Point!
Our stay was as good as it could be! We had a wonderful time and couldn't have asked for more!
The house was clean, in a great location and had beautiful views of the surrounding forestry and the beautiful Hamilton Lake.
The kitchen was great with plenty of silverware, glasses, plates, bowls, etc., as well as cooking utensils, pots and pans, etc., and a coffee maker.
The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were accessible and a good size, the outside deck was roomie with plenty of seating room and the fenced in dog area was the perfect place to let your dogs out without having to have a leash.
There was a ton of parking space in the front which was great for us because we had two big trucks, but you could probably fit more than five if you wanted to.
In addition, the house was full of fun games to play (board games, checkers, dominos), movies to watch, DISH TV access, plenty of extra blankets, pillows, etc., for a comfortable stay. It was just GREAT!
Lastly, the best part was that the owners were extremely responsive to any questions we had and their instructions for leaving were simple, clear and concise.
We will definitely stay here again in the future and would recommend to anyone!
Thank you for your positive response. We strive to make Dogwood Point Lake House your home away from home. It is a special place and it is our goal for our guests to go there and relax, unwind and re-connect with friends, family and nature.
Very secluded and peaceful stay!
Loved exploring the property. Lots of little areas inside and out to hang out. Our family had a great time together.
Home interior was very nice, outside needs some cleanup
The house was very nicely furnished. I have a few suggestions to owners: the entire yard needs a major cleanup. The patio/fenced yard area off one bedroom was not accessible due to the mini blinds did not work, and they were torn to shreds. The bed was very close to the sliding glass door and was hard to get to with the broken mini-blinds. But didn't really matter because that area was so overgrown you could not go out there. Not safe for a dog, child or adult. The swim dock has a busted board sticking up just waiting to rip open a foot, and the hand rail on steps down to the dock has 3 huge rusty nails sticking up right at arms level. The main bathroom has a cracked toilet seat (OUCH) and also mold on the bottom of the shower curtain. The large wall of windows would be a beautiful view in the winter, but summer trees all leafed out block the view of the lake. They need to be trimmed back. All bedrooms are connected, so the occupants of the middle bedroom have to walk through one of the other two bedrooms to reach the hallway. The refrig/freezer works fine, just make sure you shut the freezer door properly. There is a very severe dropoff in the backyard, so please be aware of that with small children. The property is located in a cove, not the main lake so the the water is not clear like the water in the main lake area.
Overall, the house was very nice, just needs a major landscape overhaul. The grounds in person were not at all like the pictures showed. We had a wonderful time, and saw deer, rabbits, chipmunks, 2 bald eagles, geese, ducks..............and lots of mosquitoes. Bring fogger and spray!
We are very sorry that this quest did not enjoy the grounds at our home. We work very hard to preserve the natural beauty of the plants and trees that surround our home. There are several Dogwood trees on the property as well as Azaleas and other shade loving trees and flowers. Cutting back too many of the overhead trees would harm the natural landscaping on this one acre lot that we have worked so hard to maintain. However, we do a light trimming of all trees and shrubs in early spring and late fall every year. We also enjoy the many birds, chipmunks and squirrels that make this their home.
The website shows pics from different seasons. The flowering trees and shrubs on the grounds are going to be more interesting and more beautiful when everything is in bloom in the spring and fall.
Living on the water does tend to cause wood to warp very quickly and we do routine checks and maintenance to ensure that everything is safe. If the guest found a problem we apologize and appreciate her letting us know.
Our home is indeed on a cove, as indicated on the map. Swimming on the big water can be a bit of a challenge with all the boat traffic so most people tend to seek out a cove for this reason.
We do work very hard to ensure that ours is a happy , peaceful home to visit. It is 5 minutes out of the city limits, located in a country setting, overlooking the lake. Mosquito's may be present anywhere there is water , especially after dark.
As explained to our guest we did have a problem with some of our previous guests allowing children and pets to play in the blinds so we did have some custom window treatments on order. We felt it wiser to leave the old blinds up until the new ones came, in for privacy purposes.
Our guests comfort and enjoyment is our number one priority.
Stay was great.
Everything worked the view was nice, dock swimming was great. Plenty of room for the family. Will happily do it again.
Renewed, relaxed and refreshed
We were travelling in a large group that included dogs and an eight month old. The lakehouse was a life/relationship preserver. The house is "V" shaped, with the bedrooms on one leg and living areas on the other. The baby slept soundly in the last bedroom while we cooked then played games in the dining room. Everyone was very happy.
Excellent little getaway
My family and I decided to visit Hot Springs in order to check out the tourist attractions we've heard so much about such as the Arlington, Spas and trails that lead up to the lookout tower. After looking around the internet for places to stay we came across Dogwood Point Lake House, which came highly recommended to us from a friend. Overall, the Lake House was beautiful and filled with creative art pieces. It made us feel like we were staying at a beach house. It had that "waterfront atmosphere" we were looking for. The location of this house is perfect because its only 5 minutes from town and yet feels so far away from it. We had privacy, which was important to us. The Lake is right outside the back door and we were able to swim. We will definitely be back. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a great Hot Springs experience.
