We stayed here for a Leadership Retreat. We had codo accomodations. There were two bedroom condos, each bedroom had a bathroom. The condo was spacious, and top notch. Super cute were the little towel creatures created on the beds.
The service was great, we had the food that was catered at the convention area, and it was delicious! Their guaacamole was especially great!
We had rain, since it was September, but I could imagine this place would be amazing in the summer.
The pool, although we didn't swim, was the cleanest bluest pool ever.
Very great stay, can't wait to bring family here.

We've been going to Mountain Harbor Resort for years and always have an exceptional experience, regardless of the season. After traveling to many beautiful places in the world, Mountain Harbor has a special place in our hearts. The resort is surround by natural beauty of the Ouachita National Forest and is situated on the shoreline of Lake Ouachita. The lake is pristine clear water and is considered the cleanest in America. The resort is family operated, their staff is very accommodating and they always make sure that anything we would need would be taken care. The staff is not only very well train, but their professionalism is exceeded in every detail. They have accommodations for every budget. We prefer to stay in the Harbor North overlooking the lake but the condominiums are also very nice. We did not have a chance to stay in the lodge but the rooms have recently been refurbish. Cottages provide luxurious comfort, they are gracefully decorated in rustic style and the kitchens are completely furnish. The beds are very comfortable and that is very important for us. Great view of lake from the huge deck, complete with furniture, grill and a large hot tub. The deck provides great views of the sunset and sunrise. Cleaning staff alway does a good job. We enjoy the Pavilion, located on a little peninsula overlooking the lake. One time we had a concert for about hundred people there. Again, the staff was very helpful. Because of its beautiful location, the Pavilion can be used for weddings and family gatherings. There are a lot of things to do around Mountain Harbor like horseback riding, nature trails, crystal hunting and the main attraction, the lake. The Marina is centrally located with a floating store and a Subway restaurant. It's great to be able to grab a quick bite to eat and sit in the marina overlooking lake. Summers are always busy but you still can relax and have a good time. The Marina is well equipped with ski boats, party barges and anything you would need on the lake. If you need something bigger you can rent houseboat for few days and that is a lot of FUN. Not as expensive as most people think. The restaurant provides decent food, their catfish is really tasty (I am not crazy about fry food). Just remember, if you enjoy wine or beer you have to buy it on your way into Mountain Harbor, the entire county is dry. If you are concerned about safety, the MHR is very safe but like anywhere else don't leave anything in your car in plain view. I've seen security driving around and walking on the dock, day and night. Never had any problems. On few occasions, we had the opportunity to enjoy spa treatments in Turtle cove spa. It looks rustic outside but has lovely interior and top notch equipment. Always had great massages and other treatments. Staying in MHR will make you feel like your visiting long lost family, always relaxing and the best time ever! When you stay there you will daily see the owner with simple name tag, Bill. We had the pleasure of talking with him on many occasions. He made us feel like family right away. Our only regret is we don't spent enough time in Mountain Harbor. I should written this review a long time ago but I don't like crowds but I have to be fair.

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.

Mountain Harbor is off the beaten path, but if you find it, you won't be sorry. The food, lodging and staff combine for the perfect weekend getaway or vacation. Understand you are nowhere near the amenities of urban life, but if you seek a pastoral retreat with swimming, boating, fishing, hiking or time in a world-class spa, Mountain Harbor is the place for you.

What a pleasant stay at Mountain Harbor. The amenities are great and the ease of getting around the resort is excellent. There's not a bad view from any of the facilities. The food at the restaurant was very good. We stayed in a cottage which was clean, and had everything we needed to feel like home. We grilled on the back deck and enjoyed the jacuzzi. We cooked indoors and enjoyed movies on the big flat screen at night with our kids. The lake is by far the most beautiful I have ever put my boat on. No matter where you on the lake the views are amazing. Ultra clean water and deep, cool coves offer a peaceful float or rip up the calm waters tubing and wake boarding. The only suggestion i have would be to add some outdoor ceiling fans on the decks of the cottages. We will definitely be back next year.

Room Tip: Not a bad view from any of the facilities. Cottages have everything you need to feel like its home away from home.

Thank you for taking the time to write this terrific review! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay with us. The lake is so beautiful, isn't it? After your departure, we noticed that the fan on the deck was missing and we have replaced that. Now you just need to come back and sit in the breeze with us!
