our family stayed at the Lodge and rented a boat with driver to take us out on Beautiful Lake Ouchita in Mountain Harbor. totally worth the drive to Mt Ida, Arkansas. the pristine water, untouched lake surrounded by national Forrest. we will certainly go back. the restaurant was good. Next time I hope to have a cabin with kitchen and or grill so I don't have to eat there every day. but it was great. I also recommend the subway for a quick and easy breakfast sandwich. First time fishing for our boy and he loved it. hoping to go back for another Fall or spring weekend getaway! thank you mountain harbor.

His vision for his "mountain harbor" lives on under the ownership and management of his son, Bill Barnes, and his son, Chris, and daughter, Stephanie, who are both integral in the operations. Just a thirty minute drive west from Hot Springs, this premier Arkansas resort, offers Lake Ouachita's most luxurious cabins and cozy lake view guest rooms, an elite fleet of rental boats, services and fuel through Mountain Harbor's Marina, houseboat rentals, lake view dining at the Lodge Restaurant and three sparkling swimming pools.
