The Lake House on Lake Hamilton

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 adults and 2 kids, 3 night minimum required

We have been listing with VacationRentals for over ten years and have a proven track record. The Lake House has the most beautiful view of Lake Hamilton and is located right on the water with over 100 feet of lake frontage. You will not find a more peaceful and secluded location and yet you are minutes away from downtown Hot Springs, horse racing, and all that a resort town has to offer. We have a strict limit of no more than 4 adults and 2 kids (but kids must be 12 years or younger).

Due to hefty rate increases from HomeAway we will need to raise our rates effective June 7th. Anything booked after June 7th will be 10% higher than current listed rates. We apologize for any hardship this may cause, but the advertising and listing rates have more than doubled. Thanks for your understanding.

The lake house is 1,200 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, large living room and dining area. The living room and dining room have French doors that open onto a 550 foot wood deck which over looks the lake. Both bedrooms have king size beds. A futon is located in the living area that will sleep two. The house is approximately ten years old and is well maintained with central air, a fully equipped laundry room, and kitchen. A 2 car detached garage is located at the front of the property. On the waterfront we have a large covered boat dock with a 300 foot deck area where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a drink as you look out over the water.

This property allows the best of both worlds. Get out of town to be in the country, yet have all the comforts of home as well as all that a city has to offer less than thirty minutes away by boat or car. Something for the entire family: Dad’s off to the horse races, the kids go for a dip in the lake, mom relaxes on the deck with a cold glass of lemonade while grandma fishes and grandpa strolls under the Arkansas Pines. Everyone needs to get away and there is no better place than our little piece of paradise.

About Jeff Hicks

I'm an author and songwriter as well as a real estate professional. Just published my first children's book which can be found on Amazon: 'Charlie and Chocolate's Purrfect Prayer'.I'm also a songwriter for the band Seven Years located in Los Angeles California Although I currently reside in California, my heart will always remain in Arkansas and that's why I purchased this 'dream' home on the lake with my family, whom all still reside in the Hot Springs area. We are happy to share this peaceful place on the planet with people who appreciate nature and beauty.

Jeff Hicks purchased this house in 2006

Why Jeff Hicks chose Royal

When I started looking for a lake house, I had no idea what to expect. I looked at a lot of 'so called' lake properties that were either not on the lake at all or were perhaps more on a creek. Once I walked into this house and saw the view, I knew it was the place for me. I fell in love with it immediately. Unfortunately, the owners were not listing it for sale for another whole year. Luckily, when multiple offers came in on the first listing day, they gave me priority. I could travel almost anywhere in the world with my flexible schedule, but I find myself always coming back to the Lake House. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Lake House on Lake Hamilton

Boerne, TX

My family of five had a fabulous 4 days at The Lake House on Lake Hamilton.

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen was fully stocked and the bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. The backyard was wonderful. We spent most of our time on the covered area on the lake. We played cards and dominoes and played in the water with tubes and a kayak we brought from home. The neighbors were very friendly and gave good recommendations for restaurants and sights in Hot Springs. Overall, it was the perfect place for good, relaxing quality time with our boys. In the evenings we enjoyed the large selection of movies. We would highly recommend this home to anyone traveling to Hot Springs.

Peaceful lake house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over spring break so there wasn’t too much activity on the lake but it was really nice and peaceful. The house had everything you could need and was clean and comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is getting some new grates for the grill because they were pretty much rusted through. Other than that, we had zero problems and it was a great vacation

A piece of heaven on earth!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing! It was very clean, has everything under the sun you could possibly need! There were hundreds of movies for the kids snd adults to watch, beds were very comfortable, tons of kitchen stuff, and it just felt like home. The deck was beautiful and relaxing to hang out on, the dock was perfect for viewing the lake and fishing from, the lake itself was amazingly beautiful, we kayaked and fished a lot. We ended up spending most of our time at the house and on the lake! The neighbors were extremely friendly too! I would love to come back again sometime! It truly felt like a piece of heaven on earth! Highly recommend staying here!

This is the best rental we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the house was too short. We extended it one day, but then had to get home. We loved the house, very comfortable with everything you'd need, and the beds were great. We spent a lot of time on the 2 decks - it was hard to tear ourselves away from the birds, the view and the beautiful weather to go sightseeing. We did get downtown Hot Springs to see Bathhouse row, and also went to the top of the mountain. Both are worth seeing. But, then we'd race back to the house to enjoy all it has to offer. We ate at the Brick House Grill downtown one night, but we enjoyed coming back to the house to eat instead. Shirley was very accommodating when she met us at the house when we first got there. She also called once to see if everything was okay. And when we asked if we could stay one more day, she said we could stay as long as we wanted (wish that was true, but we had to go home). We stayed for 5 nights and will stay longer next time. The only thing I had to buy (for myself) was a box of Kleenex. The neighbors waved to us every time they saw us. If you are looking for comfort and tranquility, this is the house for you. (Just hope that you save us a week next spring!). Thanks to the Hicks for renting out their wonderful home.
