Lake Ouachita 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.

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.

It was like a home away from home in many regards.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the "Chocolate Kiss" condo (not the one pictured in these photos) was quite enjoyable. The condo was beautifully decorated and had all the necessary amenities to make our stay comfortable. It's a two bedroom (each with a beautiful and comfortable king sized bed), two bathroom condo with a washer & dryer in the second bath (with some detergent and fabric softener too), a pull out couch in the living room, a partially stocked kitchen, a wonderful porch with working gas grill (plus outdoor table and chairs). The condo had everything we needed!

There was no wifi, but we had our own mobile hotspot, so no big deal. As a party of six, we used the pull out couch. Like many, it wasn't comfortable. The only problem we encountered was the day of our arrival. The condo was immaculately clean, but it had an odor - like sulpher water. Everyone was unhappy, thinking we'd smell once we showered and washed clothes (a necessity after we'd been on the road several days already). But I'm glad to report the condo's water is fine! Maybe we were the first visitors of the season; we ran water through every faucet, ran the washing machine, washed dishes, and within an hour, the smell was completely gone. That made our stay much more pleasant!

During our stay, we went on a trail ride (3 minutes away), fishing at the marina (five minutes away), hiked, and dined at a diner in town (maybe 15 minutes away). We even found an ice cream store a few miles down the road. Certainly had lots to do in the area.

Our rental agent ROCKED! She was easy to work with to book the condo, happily arranged a late check out (because it's off season). There was a tornado in the area the weekend prior to our visit, and power was out all over Mount Ida, but I was not worried because Sami emailed me right away once she verified the condo was not damaged. She let me know there was no power, and she gave me the opportunity to rebook another time if the power would not be on. After I told her we'd rather keep our reservation if there was any chance of the power getting fixed, she monitored the power situation and contacted me as soon as it was on (it was turned on the day before we arrived). We entered and found a personal welcome message for our family, a goody basket with snacks in the kitchen, and a tiny bottle of champagne for the adults. Once we checked out and headed home, she promptly refunded our deposit. She was a pleasure to work with, and we'd book with her again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Antoinette, I can't explain how glad I was the power was back on by the time of your arrival. We usually don't have to suffer longer than a day when that happens. Having the hot water heater flushed is a must in some of our condos. I had this one serviced after your visit. We apologize for your inconvenience. We have a hiking trail that can easily be accessed using mountain bikes. We also have 4 ATV trails and some great horseback riding trails. I'm glad you all enjoyed your stay. Please call again and allow us to host you and your loved ones in the future. Sincerly, Sami

Quiet and Peaceful in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

Our "hidden in the woods" 2-bedroom condo was well decorated, clean and very comfortable. Traveling with teenagers, we loved the master suite with it's king-size bed, bathroom and spacious double vanity, closet space and sinks. I want to know what kind of mattress it was. I need one!! The second bedroom has 2 full-size beds. Each room is furnished with a tv and remote. There's a second bathroom with shower that has a washer and dryer in the closet. Awesome! Our favorite was the wrap around porch that has a BBQ grill, table and chairs along with a bench swing overlooking the tennis courts and the woods where you can sit and watch squirrel, deer and chipmunks. We had a stack of firewood available to us which we did not take advantage of but it was a welcome surprise. Speaking of surprises, they had a basket of snacks waiting for us on the counter along with a small bottle of wine, 2 chilled glasses and a cupcake in the fridge. This particular unit was on the first floor with steps down into it. If you're needing a handicap accessible condo, this company can accommodate you. I'm not sure if we had wireless internet available. We tried to access it but wouldn't work and there was no instructions on how to make it work. I'm sure they would have assisted us if we had had the time to mess with it. The lodge on the property has a restaurant if you're not interested in driving all the way to Hot Springs for a meal. Our stay was short but very peaceful and comfortable. The drive up to it is very scenic as well. I would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: We are grateful you enjoyed our extras. With another management company and no owner that lives on property we love making your stay special. Thank you for the sign suggestion. There are now instructions on how to connect to the WiFi. Our Off Season is my favorite time of year. You can still rent a boat, there are 70 degree days in the Winter & Spring, the hiking trails are cool and our ATV riding in the national forest is great. You can ride your ATV all over the resort as we locals do. Bring your toys and enjoy our little piece of paradise.

Wooded Retreat Condo

  • 5 of 5

Before we even booked our trip, Sami was very helpful by taking the time to determine which condo would be best suited for our situation (therapy dog, kids, internet access) and she took the time to walk me through the map (over the phone) of the area to recommend places to walk our dog. We arrived to a very clean & comfortable condo as well as treats for us and our dog. The area is beautiful and the views from our balcony and living window were great! We saw deer everyday. When I couldn't login to wireless internet (weekend work), Sami called the owner of the condo and he assisted promptly. We had a short wonderful stay and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sami, her properties and the Mountain Harbor area of Lake Ouachita.

Owner's Response: Sonya, I'm glad you made memories in our Wooded Retreat condo. We enjoy explaining our area to new comers. I hate to try to get info from a jaded travel agent and they are testy. We know once you visit you will be back. And, you came at one of the most perfect months of the entire year. Oct is my favorite. If you 4 wheel it is great to ride to the top of the mountain and see the entire lake from HIckory Nut Mountain Vista. Or, walk the trail. Either is beautiful. Thanks again and please come back anytime. Sami
