Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa, with Lake Ouachita's premiere Arkansas cabinshas been proudly owned and operated by the Barnes family since 1955, when Hal Barnes found a beautiful harbor in the newly formed Lake Ouachita, just under the gentle sweep of Hickory Nut Mountain.  His vision for his “mountain harbor” lives on under the ownership and management of his son, Bill Barnes, and his son, Chris, and daughter, Stephanie, who are both integral in the operations.   Just a thirty minute drive west from Hot Springs, this premier Arkansas resort, offers Lake Ouachita’s most luxurious cabins and cozy lake view guest roomsan elite fleet of rental boats, services and fuel through Mountain Harbor’s Marina, houseboat rentals, lake view dining at the Lodge Restaurant and three sparkling swimming pools.  Weddings, group meetings and family reunions find exceptional staff and service in our lake side conference and wedding venues.

You can access miles of hiking, biking, and wandering at Mountain Harbor Resort on the popular LOViT (Lake Ouachita Vista Trail). Camp Ozark is also a short 21 miles away. Golf courses, museums, canoeing, Arkansas' only theme park, Magic Springs, the entire Tri-Lake's area, and a host of yearly events and activities are within an hour's drive. Nearby, Mount Ida, just 12 miles down the road, boasts a friendly, small-town personality and is famed as the Quartz Crystal Capital of the world!
