Such a fan of this resort and spa. Encouraging a visit to all! You can be as secluded or as involved in activities as you like. Great for families, company retreats and couples. The lodge staff is incredible as is the food. Go enjoy some time at the lake.

Comfortable accomodations, friendly and helpful and polite staff. Food in the restaurant was of good quality. Beautiful view of the lake from the restaurant. Best marina and boat slips. Excellent launching ramp. Feel that if you are staying at the resort, that you should not have to pay a five dollar fee every time you launch. That should be free...

Thank you for your wonderful review! WE are so happy you were pleased! We're sorry about the launching fee, but it is a mandatory fee by the Corps of Engineers who own the launching ramp. Mountain Harbor has no control over the fees or the ramp. The fees go into funding to maintain the federal facilities around the lake.

We brought our boat and rented a boat slip which was in view of our room. Location is not far from Hot Springs and also the town of...

Words can't describe how much we enjoyed our vacation at Mountain Harbor Resort. Management worked with us on several personal issues and could not have been more supportive. Our cottage was absolutely perfect and was stocked with everything we needed. The huge deck overlooking the lake with a jacuzzi and grill was perfect after a long day of boating or...

The cabin is very nice. I highly recommend the Harbor North Cabins. I've stayed many times. They're very comfortable. I'm booked again to return for the 4Tth of July holiday. I try to stay there as often as possible..

I have been coming to Mountain Harbor for many years. I have never been disappointed. Great view of the lake from your room. Always clean and a super staff. Chris Darby is the fishing guide there and will put you on the fish every time. Beautiful hiking trains right at the resort.

I would love to do it again. We enjoyed cooking a nice meal and the fireplace. There was a hot tub that was clean and private at our cabin that I relaxed in each night. I hope to go back in the future.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa, with Lake Ouachita's premiere Arkansas cabins, has been proudly owned and operated by the Barnes family since 1955, when Hal Barnes found a beautiful harbor in the newly formed Lake Ouachita, just under the gentle sweep of Hickory Nut Mountain. 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. Weddings, group meetings and family reunions find exceptional staff and service in our lake side conference and wedding venues. You can access miles of hiking, biking, and wandering at Mountain Harbor Resort on the popular LOViT (Lake Ouachita Vista Trail). Nearby, Mount Ida, just 12 miles down the road boasts a friendly, small-town personality and is famed as the quartz crystal capitol of the world!Camp Ozark is also a short 21 miles away. Golf courses, museums, canoeing, Arkansas' only theme park, Magic Springs, the entire Tri-Lake's area, and a host of yearly events and activities are within an hour's drive. From our family to yours, we welcome you! ... more   less
