While the house itself met expectations we felt outside did not. Docks and outside furnishings were roted. We had young children and safty was a concern.

Nice but could've been a better experience

  • 2 of 5

The house has great potential. Definitely needs updating. There were 2 cracks in the Sheetrock ceilings. Appliances are outdated in the kitchen. Half of the light switches did not turn on any lights that I could find. The beds were absolutely horrible. The bunk beds in the loft were so hard that my family could not sleep on them. My husband and I were miserable on the king size bed which I guess was supposed to be a waterbed. The lawn was not kept up very well. The pool was dirty, which may have been possible from a storm that blew in the day of our arrival. While I was trying to swim and relax by the pool, there was a lady at the next house on the same property by the pool spraying the house down and was using a leaf blower, which was very loud! There was no password given to us for the wifi. There was someone's personal lubricant found in the drawer of the bedside dresser that my mother was staying in! Yuck! There were still items left in the dryer. No washing detergent was present even though I was told there was. The outside view of the lake was beautiful. But all the boats available for personal use was disgusting and the flat bottom boat was covered with mildew. I wouldn't recommend for anyone to stay here. I feel I was overcharged. But as far as the vacation and hot springs, definitely loved and enjoyed!

About Laura or Jim Bell

I am a retired mortgage banker, my wife and I have a home next door to the one I hope to rent to you. I am an avid fisherman, tennis player and golfer. I am usually next door to help with your needs.

Hot Springs Village the largest gated community in America is 20 minutes away. It has 9 of the finest golf courses in the south.

Why Laura or Jim Bell chose Mountain Pine

This is by far the most serene part of Lake Hamilton. National forest is behind us and if you were to cross the lake you would be in national forest again.

In the summer when the rest of the lake is 85+ degrees at night you can sit on the porch or dock and need a long sleeve shirt because of the fog and the 49 degree water rolling past the dock, By the way that's when the fishing gets fun because I have the only rock shoal on the lake in front of my house. The fish know that too.

What makes this house unique

Located on the most secluded part of Lake Hamilton. Summertime water temperature is 50 degrees because the home is right below Blakely Dam. You can sit on dock or porch in August in a long sleeve shirt and watch the fog roll in. Put on waders and catch trout in front of house on the only rock shoal on Lake Hamilton.

15 Miles
Hot Springs Village-US largest gated golf communit
Car: recommended

Beautiful area with Trout AND Striper fishing right in front of the guest house and up/down the river, as we call it at this part of the lake. You're also just minutes away from fabulous Walleye fishing too. You'll be AMAZED at the size of the fish and the serenity of this place! You are less than 20 minutes from Hot Springs Village the largest gated golfing community in the U.S.. You are less than an hour and a half from the only diamond mine in the U.S. The public is welcome to visit and dig and keep any diamonds that they find.
