Every season is an ideal time to enjoy all that this location has to offer.

The world record striper was caught within 5 miles of the cabin and boat rental and fishing guide service are available.Fishing guide Wayne Compton @ 5016274283 is one of our favorites.

About Betsy Byers

We're all from Mt. Ida, and grew up spending family time on Lake Ouachita. We built this Cabin to be the family's private retreat closer to the lake, however some of our famly have moved away and the property isn't being used as often as we'd planned, so we'd like to share our little piece of paradise with others. We are open to suggestions to making it the best we can make it. We can't wait to hear what traditions and memories your family created!

Betsy Byers purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Betsy Byers chose Lake Ouachita

This house is secluded enough to be serene but is conveniently located close to the lake. It doesn't get much better than this log cabin!

What makes this cabin unique

I love how this Cabin has all the comforts of home, yet is placed on top of a mountain with a great view, which the huge wrap around decks really take advantage of. I could (and often have) sit outside all day and night.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our Christmas trip. It has a cozy cabin feel- with beautiful decor and plenty of room for our family of 5. We spent our time playing games and hanging out by the fire. The cabin comes stocked with everything you need!

The setting is beautuful and my kids loved exploring the property. The location is perfectly placed. We went to nearby Hot Springs for restaurants, movies, and shopping. We went further into Ouachita Mountains for hiking, scenic drives, and off-roaring. Betsy was a perfect host-- easy to communicate with and taking care of our needs.

Cozy cabin with beautiful scenery

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Thanksgiving... the cabin is at the edge of the woods and has beautiful views. We went hiking several times, horseback riding, had fires and smores in the firepit and relaxed. Betsy was quick to answer any questions we had. It was a wonderful time!

Loved this little cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We weren't sure what to expect since we'd never used VRBO before. The directions were detailed, the suggestions of what to do were great, and the accommodations were amazing! My daughters (4 and 9) were ready to move in and never leave. They loved the porch and their own private balcony upstairs. The only thing we didn't love was that the house is next to a road, so there was some road noise when the house was quiet.

We went on the hike down Shangri-La Road. It was beautiful and we went down to the lake. I'm not sure how long it is since we walked for over an hour and finally turned around, but it was beautiful. We also went down to Wegner's mine. I'm not sure if we found anything of value, but we came back with a bunch of pretty rocks.

Thanks for putting up with all my questions (like, where can I buy clothes if, say, hypothetically, I forgot to pack shirts for my 4 year old!) and providing everything we needed for a long weekend away. We will be back!

Amazing and relaxing home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home away from home vacation spot was perfect for our mini vacation. It was close enough to everything (the beautiful water, restaurants, gas station, horseback riding, etc.) but at the same time far enough away to give you that "cabin feel." The cabin is clean, spacious, and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. We also felt safe being behind a gate that requires a code to enter. The owners are great to work with and overall we were pleased with our stay. We WILL be back!!

Great cabin for a Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin over Spring Break this year and the whole family enjoyed our stay tremendously. The kids loved walking out the front door looking for crystals and roasting s'mores in the open fire pit. The cabin itself was comfortable with great views of the stars from the outside porch. Tthe foose ball table was fun and created several rounds of friendly, family competition! There were numerous activities within close distance of the cabin including biking, hiking and horse back riding.

Beautiful accommodations with attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't be more pleased with this beautiful, well-appointed cabin. Bed and linens were comfortable. Kitchen is well-stocked and the porches were so lovely. Initially the road noise was bothersome, but the roads calmed after Friday. The proximity is actually a blessing, as the highway will take you quickly to Hot Springs, Mt. Ida or deeper into the Ouachita Lake wilderness. We spent days hiking, evenings cooking and gathered around the fire pit. Highly recommend a stay here!
