We were blown away by the Mount Magazine Lodge. We stayed in a deluxe queen room with a balcony on the second floor. The Lodge overlooks the Petit Jean River Valley and Blue Mountain Lake. The view from our balcony (and the lodge in general) was amazing. You have to pay extra for a balcony, but I cannot imagine not having it. The actual room is very nice and a steal for $142/night for the weekday, fall rate. The lodge itself rivals any national park lodge we have seen. The main entrance has a nice sitting area with a great view, very tall ceilings, and a beautiful stone fire place. We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at the lodge restaurant. The food was very good, the nice lodge look continued into the dining room, and once again the view is to die for. We are not pool people but we enjoyed their indoor pool and water slide as well as the hot tub. We are already talking about coming back to the Mount Magazine Lodge. What an amazing place!

I was shocked when I entered my 3rd floor room--king bed, jacuzzi tub, vaulted ceilings so high I felt like I was in church, and a balcony! There were chairs outside so I could enjoy my coffee while watching the sunrise. The hotel provided wi-fi points on each floor, so the signal was great. The lodge catered the food for our conference, and it was very good. The gift shop had some beautiful jewelry, which let me do some gift shopping, too. Even with all the hairpin turns up the mountain to get there, I can't wait to go back (hopefully for pleasure instead of business next time!)

Very rustic, yet in no way primitive. Modern, up-to-date lodge with fantastic views of the Petit Jean Valley of western Arkansas. Rather isolated, but plenty to do. Food in the restaurant was excellent, especially the breakfast menu.

Great value. We loved the view from our balcony, the friendly staff, the indoor pool and hot tub. Just so pretty.

Go for the lovely view of the valley and the gorgeous surroundings of Mt. Magazine Park. The staff is extremely cordial. For the area, the food is good. It is a fantastic place for a weekend get away in the mountains or a family gathering. The rooms are not fancy, but they are very clean and perfectly nice. Try to get a room with a balcony. It is divine to look out over the valley at night when things cool off and all you can hear are the sounds of the forest. Breakfasts are especially good in the restaurant!

Stayed in one of the cabins - beautifully appointed (even to wine glassses) - not a thing missing that you might need - tip-top clean including the spa on the deck - can't beat that view at night. Higher priced for the area but worth it for a special get-away. Be sure to bring your camera. So quiet that you heard nothing but the birds. Indoor pool and exercise room a definite plus.

Room Tip: If you're going for a cabin choose from #5 up

We checked into a private cabin on our first night. Even though we were very late inquiring, we asked the front desk whether our cabin or a cabin would be available the next day. We were told a few weddings were coming into town and that we would not be able to stay but that we could check into the lodge, have our check out time changed and that the transition wouldn't be a problem. The private cabin was great. The furnishings are cheesy and no in room movie service was available but the views were incredible and there were no other guests in the cabin next door so it felt very private.

The next morning I called the front desk to confirm that we would not have to check out as early and we were told we would have to leave at 11:00. We understood the cabin would have to be cleaned so we tried to be accomidating and not complain about what the previous help had told us. Later that morning, upon visiting the front desk we were then told a cabin would be available if we wanted to pay the additional $150 for the night. We had already discussed staying in the lodge and trying out the restaurant so we did not choose to despite the front desk clerk being incredibly insistent even though the weekend rate for the summer is incredibly high ($270 for one night). We then moved to a room in the lodge and the disapointment began. The room was a nice size but the provided toiletries were of the same caliber as in the cabin, scarce and cheap. The restaurant was extremely overpriced ($70 for a dinner for two, which was their buffet and four beers) and the service was terrible. During our breakfast we overheard a waitress tell another patron how it was supposed to be her day off and how angry she was for having to come in. Our dinner server was a bit better but couldnt have been out of high school.

If we were to visit Mt Magazine again we would stay in the cabin, and bring our own food and toiletries. But beware the paperwork in the cabin explains that it must be thoroughly cleaned before you check out or there will be additional charges. I found it to be slightly ridiculous that we were threatened with additional charges should we not make the bed to their standard for the housekeeper, who apparently does not clean up much after your stay at all.
Also note that there is not WIFI in the lodge rooms which made cell phone reception impossible for us.
