About Sharon & Craig

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

Why Sharon & Craig 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.

We had a girl's weekend and had a wonderful time. The captain's lake house is great. It's so comfortable and the view is so pretty. We enjoyed the large deck so much. Thanks Sharon and Craig for such a wonderful place!!
