In 1962, our Lake Hamilton summer home became our permanent residence. Talk about culture shock for an eleven year old girl that had been raised in Texas! However, life on Lake Hamilton wasn't all that bad. My father, who was now a retired American Airlines pilot, started the 2nd marina on Lake Hamilton 'Adams Yacht Sales'. It's still there on Lakeland Dr. and reflagged as Hot Springs Marina. Pontoon Boats were now all the rage as well as Inboard/outboards. Dad had an OMC dealership and we were lucky enough to have a boat to use all summer long...every summer. Water skiing was top of our list of things to do every day. The Adams kids knew the Lake Hamilton shoreline!

 

Right around 1970, the Marina was sold and my industrious father began condominium development. His first project, Twin Points Condominiums, was right up there in the first few condominium HPRs built on Lake Hamilton. My brother and I were both off to college now and when we came home, gone was our log cabin looking home on the lake and in its place was a condominium development with a pool in front. We took note of what was going on and continued on with our career paths. In the summer of 1972, my father urged me to do something constructive and get a Real Estate License. As it turned, that was pretty good advice, since years later I'm an active Real Estate Agent and totally enjoying 'Selling condominiums and lake homes right here on Lake Hamilton'. I've had other careers, obviously, but I am liking this career and time in my life best of all! Hot Springs is now more than on the verge of a big boom, it is happening. What a great time to be a Lake specialist in Real Estate here in Hot Springs.

 

If you are wondering what else I've done through the years, here it is:

 

1975 Graduated from Louisiana Tech with a BS in Professional Aviation.

 

1976 Piloted a Beech Bonanza in the last official 'Powder Puff Derby' which was awesome!

 

1977-1979 worked as a corporate pilot for GTE in San Angelo, Texas.

 

1980-1990 married life and raising two daughters. Was active in Real Estate from 1983-1985. Looking back, that was beyond ancient. The technology factor was simply not there.

 

1993-2005 Back to work... as Lab Director and flavor chemist for Grapette International. Originally in Hot Springs they are now located in Malvern, Arkansas. That was a good experience.

 

In 2009 I activated my Real Estate license for the second time since 1983. I spent a short, interesting three years with Fowler Auctioneers out of Glenwood, Arkansas in the Real Estate Auction business. In 2012 I began to focus more on Lake Hamilton properties along with other real estate here in Hot Springs. I have been very active in sales and vacation rentals during the last seven years. And I have learned that "Life is better when you are grateful".

About Lake Ouachita

Largest Lake of Arkansas with Ideal Nature Escape

Lake Ouachita is Arkansas’s largest lake fully engulfed in the majestic Ouachita National Forest. Small towns around the lake have gas stations or country stores for simple needs.

 

Depending on your location on the lake, you can make it to the city of Hot Springs in 20 minutes to an hour. You can find the National Park Medical Center, Memorial Field Airport, Walmart, hotels, restaurants, and more to fill the city scene. Little Rock is also around two hours away.

 

44,000-Acre Lake

This vast lake of 44,000 acres contains more than 200 islands. Its 975 miles of shoreline is designated as a nature reserve.

 

The houses on the lake will have all the privacy any resident would like. It is a reasonably deep lake with an average depth of 50 feet and a maximum of 200 feet.

 

The Blakely Mountain Dam created lake Ouachita in 1953. Its name comes from the French spelling of the Indian word “Washita,” which means “good hunting grounds.”

 

Recreation on the Waters and Surrounding Forest

The number of marinas around the lake offer rentals for pontoons, fishing boats, small motorboats, kayaks, canoes, and more. Once you are in the waters, you can enjoy fishing, tubing, water skiing, and more.

 

Swim the day away at the two sandy beaches or ten designated swimming areas. The exceptional underwater visibility at the lake makes it an excellent scuba diving location and spearfishing.

 

Lake Ouachita is a great striped bass fishery and largemouth bass, bream, walleye, and crappie. Camp at the Ouachita State Park, backpack the Vista Trail, or hike one of the many day-trails among the 1.8 million acres.

 

A day in Hot Springs can consist of shopping at the Hot Springs Mall, catching a movie at the Hot Springs 8 Cinema, golfing at the Hot Springs Country Club, or trying your luck at the Oaklawn Racing Casino.

 

A Spectacle of Outdoor Enjoyment

Lake Ouachita is a beautiful place to take in the beauty of Arkansas in its entirety. The serene atmosphere will put your mind at ease, and you will find entertainment in the many recreational activities.
