This is the second year we have stayed in one of the Harbor North Cabins and had our Thanksgiving dinner at the lodge. The cabins are spacious and cozy (we had two cabins and each slept 9 comfortably. Loved the deck and Jacuzzi and the meal was delicious!

Nice, basic room with great kitchen accommodations. Pretty grounds and helpful staff. We enjoyed the tennis and basketball courts that were all around the property. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and we even caught a few fish without going out with a guide.

My husband and I went to Mountain Harbor for our anniversary and had such an incredible time! We walked to breakfast each morning and enjoyed the incredible views, the wildlife, and the always welcoming staff. They even had a welcome sign and gifts for our anniversary! We high recommend and will be returning next time with the family.

The cabin was perfectly appointed. The decorator chose some beautiful antiques and little vignettes that caught the eye. Being able to cater our Thanksgiving meal was well worth it. We had no stress during our visit and lots of family time.

The first thing I want to say is WOW! This place is awesome! The area is beautiful, serene and calming. The pictures don't do it proper justice. My room is modern, spacious, clean and very comfortable. I have a nice view of the lake and a place right in back to sit outside and take it all in. This is...

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

“We have stayed at Mt.Harbor many times...for family reunions, with our young great-nephews, for a couples get away, and other Thanksgivings...but this was the first time in cottage #23. We had a wonderful 4-days in this comfortable cottage.”
