About Steve or Betsy Johnson
My husband's father purchased this land in 1959, and we are so glad he did! We were living in NE Arkansas and a position opened for us in Mtn. Home. Steve was born and raised here, so it was great to be able to come back home. We were ready for country living and our 2 boys were just entering jr. high, so it was the best time to move back. We decided to build on the 40 acres close to Mtn. Home, but in the country. I feel I could write a book on homesteading! We lived in an RV while the house was being built, and pumped water out of the spring for a short time! We all worked together with the builder, and I know our boys have many skills today because of that experience.

Why Steve or Betsy Johnson chose Mountain Home
I grew up in NE Ohio, and had barely ever heard of the state of Arkansas! My parents moved to Arkansas in 1972, when real estate was booming and many people were moving here. I decided to join them when I graduated from college and had not yet gotten a job teaching. I was here teaching choral music in the high school when I met Steve, and six months later we were married! I so fell in love with this area; my first memory of arriving in Mountain Home was crossing the lake on the highway department-operated ferry system. The smell in the air was a campfire cedar aroma that I love to this day! As I think back, it was probably from all the campsites around the lakes. Steve and I will celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary in April, and I can't imagine living anywhere else! Our 2 boys were born and raised in Mtn. Home. I tried staying home for a year when the boys were 2 and 3 years old, and I never went back to teaching. I was blessed to be able to be home with them and to be the at-home mom for all their neighborhood friends. I gave piano lessons in our home for many years. I have taught many Bible studies in this home, and it has been a place of rest and refuge for people throughout the years.
What makes this Lodge unique
Our location is so special; we are about 6 minutes from the Mtn. Home square, but we are very much in the country. We have known this land and home are unique for as long as we've lived here, and we realize that God has set this place aside for His plans and purposes to be fulfilled. Prayer has been the cornerstone of this property and we are excited to be the caretakers of the land to bless many others who come here. We know life is stressful for so many, and to be able to provide a place of relaxation and refreshing is an awesome blessing for us! The home itself is so peaceful and beautiful; one of my favorite things is all the glass windows. My favorite things are almost too numerous to mention. I love the fact, that from the road it just looks like any other house, but the instant you walk through the front door...wow! And when you continue through into the kitchen and living room, the beauty almost leaves me breathless! Even after all these years, it still has the same effect on me. It is the most fun party house, and for large gatherings of people to eat and enjoy the company of good friends is priceless.

Perfect home for our family get-away!!
Having a place large enough for our children and grandchildren to all stay together was wonderful. The large kitchen was supplied with all we needed and more. We were a group of six adults and seven children (ages 1 – 7) and there was plenty of room for all. Loved the large dining area, rec room, screen porch, fire pit …so many excellent features I can’t name them all. The owner’s attention to all the little details amazed us. Thanks so much for allowing us to use your lovely home. It's everything you could want for a large vacation place. I sure hope we can come back & visit again!!
Alice, we so appreciate your positive remarks about your stay at our Lodge! We are especially thrilled that you truly felt right at home. We loved meeting all of you and, by the way, your grandchildren are delightful! We would love to have you back!
Wonderful and amazing lodge between the lakes
We had a Christmas family reunion for 10 people. Everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom, which you don’t see that often in other places. Everyone room in the lodge, was decorated for Christmas. They had a 9 ft tree in the family room and it felt like home to all of us. Hugh dinning room with seating for 10. Large decks, several outside swings, fire pit and a fantastic game room. We had so much fun playing pool, ping pong, games, nature walks, fishing in their pond and watching the 3 TVs. I can’t say enough about this property. So much detail taken in decorating every room and equipping the kitchen with everything needing to prepare large family meals. This lodge was amazing and we hope to go back again for another family reunion next yr. Steve, the owner responded quickly to answer all my questions. Thank you for making our Family Christmas fantastic for all of us. Nancy

The cabin had a warm feel and plenty of space for our large family. We loved the hiking trails, ping pong, pool, fuzbol, etc. We built lots of great memories here!
