We are very lucky to have some happy guests. Read our reviews and book ASAP so your family does not miss out on a great vacation experience.
This gated private cabin that is located on a wooded lot on the footsteps of the Ouachita National Forest (3 miles from Mountain Habor on Lake Ouachita - a boating paradise (25mins from Camp Ozark!) this new cabin is the perfect location for a family getaway, peaceful weekend or a bass fisherman's dream-come-true! Every season is an ideal time to enjoy all that this location has to offer.
Steps meander down from the cabin's back deck to the edge of the mountain where you can explore and find untouched crystals. 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. Excellent lake and outdoor opportunities abound. Many hiking and biking trails are within 5 mins of the cabin. Several trails follow the Lake shoreline. We have maps to show all the different trails.
The interior of the cabin is extremely comfortable with two master suites - each with a queen size bed and private bathroom. The upstairs,also, has loft area that could be made into a 3rd bed room - perfect for the kids! The downstairs bedroom has French doors opening onto the back porch with a wonderful view of the Mountains, while the upstairs suite has it's own private balcony. So be ready to totally Disconnect , however, don't worry we have Internet and Direct TV.

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
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!
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.
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!
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!!
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.
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!
The home was very nice, and conveniently located to everything. Lots of cool quartz rocks around the house to check out, and the family foosball tournament was a blast. Thank you Betsy!
We booked the cabin last minute, and we were not disappointed (although I would have preferred it be further off the highway). The home was beautiful and cozy, and Betsy and Larry took care of our every need...despite the weather, and a few unexpected glitches, we enjoyed ourselves tremendously and would recommend this cabin to friends and family...and did I mention the rocks we hauled home?
Great place to Locate wildlife in the Quachita National Forest and only 10 mins from Lake Quachita, home of some of the best fishing and outdoor activities in Arkansas this cabin is a perfect retreat for any family that wants to get cozy by the fireplace and still have the comforts of a spacious home. Careful you might fall in love.
