Mount Ida Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condos 2 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Bath, (Sleeps 1-9)

Not one 'Owner Submitted' Review. Each one is from a valued guest who took the time to share their Lake Ouachita Vacation Realty experience with you.

This Condo has a unique layout. Very Nice, especially the master suite. Not another one like it.

This spacious condominium has ample room, fireplace, lake and wooded views, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals including flour, cornmeal, sugar and canola oil. The dining area has seating for four to eight people comfortably. The living room has a very comfortable sectional sofa, comfortable chair in front of the cozy fireplace and large flat screen TV with DVD player. We will even leave age & gender appropriate movies upon request for your viewing pleasure. The screened in porch with twinkle lights has seating for your entire family. Along with a soothing water fountain. There are even canvases for the winter so you can sit on the warm and toasty porch sipping coffee in comfort while watching eagles fish in the cove. There is not a condo next door so you have complete privacy. We have gas grills for your convenience (propane provided). It has a laundry room, with full size washer and dryer and even comes equipped with laundry detergent and fabric softener. Some units have stack washer and dryers.

This fully equipped home even has foam rafts for the pool, ice chest on wheels, pool games and water noodles. It has a spacious and elegant master suite with a very comfy king size bed along with a TV and DVD player. TV can be viewed from the large Jacuzzi tub. Our guest room has two comfortable queen size beds with both TV and DVD player. There are even black out panels which teens love.The room stays dark, cool and comfortable all summer long. Not all condos are like our Treehouse unit but close.

These are the only condominiums located on this beautiful lake which is over 50,000 acres. This unit is within walking distance of the lake where you can park your boat and walk to your condo. You may also walk to the pool, Turtle Cove Spa, Workout Trail and hiking trails. We have it all. The horse stables are the cleanest I have ever seen. These horses are very loved and cared for. There is a weight limit so call first.

About Sami Grace

My earliest memories are of fishing, swimming and water skiing on Lake Ouachita. Spanning 66,324 acres of land and water, it is not only the largest lake in Arkansas but is a location of choice for water fun, wildlife and beautiful trails within the Ouachita National Forest. When I first came to Mt. Harbor in '58, I was the youngest of 4 children. Without TV, video games, cell phones or any of the electronics kids have available to them today; our time was spent enjoying the outdoors with family and friends.

Those carefree days are behind us now but the memories reoccur often. I hope each of our guests enjoy the Mt. Harbor experience. I hope you're making some of the same memories I have and that you and your loved ones will come to love Lake Ouachita as I do. Warm memories of family and freinds are the best kind and I trust your time with us will invoke those in you. Our family and staff are here to serve you and your loved ones. We invite you to share our home on Lake Ouachita and, as always, we welcome you.

Sami Grace purchased this condo in 1998

Why Sami Grace chose Lake Ouachita

After shopping for a VRBO place to stay in DC to bury my mom in Arlington with my father this year it became apparent that VRBO has been taken over by large companies. It was so frustrating trying to find a one owner condo where I was actually renting from the owner. Or, even talking to someone in Washington, DC and not another county. I own this unit and manage several others. Call day or night, email or text me. You will get me and only me on the other end of your correspondence. Thanks and I look forward to helping you plan your perfect Lake Ouachita Vacation.

What makes this condo unique

Harbor East Condos have hiking trails, pools, spas, horseback riding, bird watching, fishing, skiing & tubing. It's magical. I will even give you a tour by lake so you will see where the locals hang out. Our condos are stocked better than any on the rental line. And, since i live here I can help with any needs that arise during your stay.

Enjoyed our stay and Mountain Harbor is our favorite place to stay on Lake Ouachita.

We appreciate booking with Sami. Really nice and helpful. The condo we stayed in - Mango Serenity - is very comfortable and nicely decorated. The balcony in the back is nice and relaxing. There are 3 couches with seating for 8, a propane grill, 3 beds and 2 of the couches are sofa beds which was great for our kids and grandkids. It was a rainy weekend but we enjoyed 1 nice swim at the pool next to Turtle Cove Spa which was within walking distance. We saw many deer on our walk which the grandkids enjoyed. The lake is walking distance and marina right down the road. We already loved Mountain Harbor and have been there before and can't wait to get back. Book with Sami and you won't have any problems.

Owner's Response: I love showing guests around our water so they will feel comfortable in our lake on their own. I wish more people knew how great our area was in the Off Season when everything is lower....Rates, Temps and Population. And, we ride our ATV's all winter long in the National Forest. It's great when the area is quiet and you can hike, swim, ride on the trails and the water stays warm til October. Try us in the Off Season when the leaves are chaging. You won't regret it. Thanks, Sami

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Mango Serenity with our two daughters aged 10 and 8. Everything was perfect. There was a generous welcome basket with treats for the girls. It was the perfect location for us to have a relaxing vacation but still be close enough to Hot Springs that it was no problem to go spend a day at Magic Springs and go back another night for dinner and the magic show. The unit was within reasonable walking distance to the pool which was perfect for us. Sami personally took us on a tour of the lake the day before we rented our own boat. She was delightful and extremely informative. Had we not done the tour with her, we may have been a little clueless on our own the next day. Since we did, our day on the lake was the best of our vacation. Lake Ouachita is beautiful and we had a great time swimming and taking in the scenery. We would highly recommend a Lake Ouachita vacation to any family looking something both relaxing and fun.

Owner's Response: I have fun on the lake tours when i have time. This lake is 50,000 acres with 1000 miles of shoreline. With no homes built on it to use as markers it's nice when i can give guests a few navigation tips. Especially Avant Landing where Bass Pro Shop shoots their calendars. We hope you will come back in the fall when everything drops.....Rates, Population and Temps. Y'all come back and enjoy the resort in the Off Season from Labor Day thru Memorial Day. Bring your ATV's and ride in the national forest with us.

Cozy Comfy Condo

  • 5 of 5

The Treehouse condo is exactly as pictured and is a very nice accommodation. My kids said "wow Mom this is nice" when we walked in. :) Very nice community and close to the marina. Very peaceful and the lake is pristine and absolutely beautiful. If you like being on the lake - it has plenty of room for all your boating activities. We saw a bald eagle in a cove and it was majestic for sure. If you are looking to get away this is the place you - you will recharge here. The people are down to earth and a pleasure to be with. The Mountain Harbor Lodge food is good and large portions. Horseback riding is a fun activity with kids, the horses are beautiful and well mannered.

Owner's Response: John, we are so glad you had a good time and hope you will return. We have Jan and Feb dedicated to eagle watching. I have watched an eagle eat his dinner at the big tree by the back deck. It was amazing. I have also watched one fish in the cove from the back deck in the winter. We hope you will join us again. Our Off Season rates are unbeatable. Thanks, Sami

We WILL be back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at one of Sami's condos (Blue Bird) during spring break. From the moment we walked in and found a personalized welcome basket to our last morning in the condo, we just kept finding reasons we loved staying there! Sami is by far the most gracious VRBO property owner we have ever worked with, and we use VRBO as many as 4-5 times per year at various locations in the USA. Sami checked in with us as we drove in late one night, personally came by the condo and met us one morning during our stay, and introduced us to her puppy! The condo itself was spacious, neat and clean, and had plenty of cookware and a cute grill on the deck. We cooked all our meals in at the cabin as we came and went all week long. We had never heard of Mountain Harbor Resort but are so glad we stumbled upon it! Literally, you can play all over the mountain. We took our bikes, rode horses, played hours of tennis, fished, hiked, and played in the edge of the lake. Due to temperatures and wind, we didn't get to rent kayaks. That was available, too, and we'll do it next time. We went into Hot Springs for some shopping and sight seeing on two different days, and just fell in love with this area. We will be coming back very, very soon and next time we'll be towing our ski boat! The people at the resort's marina shop were fabulous, other people staying in rentals nearby were kind, and it's such a pet and kid friendly getaway! We have two teenagers, and they LOVED the condo and Mountain Harbor. My husband and I have even talked about coming back this fall without the kids for a little weekend away. Book a rental with Sami as quickly as you can, you won't be sorry!

Wonderful accommodations, great service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at "Mango Serenity" (not condo pictured) for 3 nights during Spring Break and had a fantastic time! There were 2 adults, 2 kids, and 1 dog. We had plenty of space to spread out and relax. It felt like we were in a treehouse with all the woods in the back. Convenient to the amenities of Mountain Harbor Resort as well as the boat docks. Sami was wonderful to work with and very accommodating with any special requests we had during the stay. Great location, clean and tasteful. Always love Mountain Harbor and Lake Ouachita. So glad to find Sami and LOVR!!

Owner's Response: Mango Serenity is one of our favorite condos. This upstairs unit is spacious, 3 overstuffed, comfy sofas, 3 beds and 2 sleeper sofas. The view of the national forest off the deck is a serenity plus. We are happy you enjoy our service and our clean condos. We are grateful you allowed us to host you and your loved ones. Our off season rates and having the resort to yourself are fantastic. Call anytime. We are always here, 501-912-1236. Thank you again, Sami at Lake Ouachita Vacation Realty.
