About the property

Beautiful 1,416 sf upper level condo situated 'in the trees' at Mountain Harbor

Summer is here! Time to go to one of America's most beautiful lakes!

Mountain Harbor, Lake Ouachita's premier resort community, is situated in the beautiful Ouachita Mountains surrounded by natural springs, winding rivers, tall pine trees, stunning mountains all highlighted by the amazing 49,000 acre Lake Ouachita with its incredible view from most any vantage point.

For over 22 years, Lake Ouachita has been our favorite getaway. This condo was our first home away from home at Lake Ouachita. We have since purchased another home just around the corner! The condo is furnished with comfort in mind. The entire group can easily gather on the HUGE sofa! Photography from around the lake can be found throughout our condo.

Our condo is an extra large two bedroom/two bath floor plan with 1,416 square feet of living space. Situated on the upper level, access is made easier by a new ramp and front porch that was just recently rebuilt extending from the two car parking area rather than the standard steps found on most Harbor East condos. With three queen sized beds and a queen sleeper sofa, it will very comfortably sleep six to eight people. The Master Bedroom has one queen bed. The second bedroom has two queen beds. We have found that the kids actually love sleeping end to end on the giant L-shaped sofa. We have had up to four kids sleep there by removing the back cushions without unfolding the sleeper section!

As you enter our condo you are greeted by an Entry Hall that leads to a large Living and Dining area with vaulted ceiling and ceiling fan overlooking the forest and the tennis courts via the wrap-around deck. All new skylights and lots of windows give you the illusion that you are living in a tree house with great views of wildlife in the evenings and birds most all day long. A 40" Sony television with Dish Network is available for your entertainment. A lovely stone wood burning fireplace finishes the room that features some furniture custom built in my woodworking shop! The wrap around deck is accessed via two different french doors with roman shades. The deck, with plenty of seating and a Weber BBQ grill, invite you to the great outdoors, while not leaving your comfortable surroundings. Two ceiling fans will keep you cool on those warm afternoons. The dining table seats six people with seating for two more at the adjacent counter looking into the newly remodeled kitchen.

The Kitchen was remodeled in June 2016. It features a huge side by side refrigerator/freezer with water and ice in the door. A solid surface electric cook top with oven, dishwasher, and trash compactor complete the kitchen which is fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, plates, glasses and wine glasses... even a crock pot! You'll find everything you will need to serve your family and friends while you are guests with us. New floors and granite tile counter tops round out this well equipped kitchen.

The Master Suite has a very comfortable Queen bed and a wall mounted 40" Sony TV with Dish Network and DVD Player. Bedside tables with lamps finish the room. It has a separate door leading to the deck as well. The Master Bathroom has a double vanity, huge double closet and drawer sets with lots of mirrors. Skylights grace this area as well letting in lots of natural light in the dressing area. The shower/tub is glass enclosed. Plenty of soft, fluffy towels are on hand for your use. The Second Bedroom features two queen beds, chest of drawers, side table with lamp and a rocking chair. It has a 24" Samsung HD TV with Dish HD Service. The Second Bathroom is just outside the bedroom door and features a stand up glass enclosed shower and vanity. A towel chest stores all of your towels and other linens for the condo. Because we upgraded the washer and dryer to handle bigger loads (lots of towels from the day on the lake!), the full size washing machine is located in a closet in the second bathroom, with the full size dryer located in the entry hall closet.

Our condo is located just 5 minutes on foot to the Turtle Cove spa or the swimming pool and just 30 seconds to the tennis courts. If you choose to rent a boat slip from Mountain Harbor, you are just 3 minutes by car from L Dock and the paradise of Lake Ouachita!

About Bill McFadden

We live in Shreveport, Louisiana. We are both graduates of LSU. We love to travel to far off places, but we always find ourselves coming back to our favorite place on the planet, Lake Ouachita and Mountain Harbor! Bill McFadden is a licensed real estate broker in Louisiana and Arkansas affiliated with McFadden Real Estate LLC. We do not charge or pay real estate commissions in association with the rental of our condo.

Bill McFadden purchased this condo in 2006

Why Bill McFadden chose Mount Ida

Traveling to Lake Ouachita several times each year since the early 1990's, we decided to purchase our condo in 2006 so we could have a permanent residence to rest and relax. The beauty of the lake, the hiking trails and the great people of this area all combined to help us choose Mountain Harbor as our second home. We continue to enjoy Harbor at every opportunity. We know you too will find peace and comfort in this incredible nature filled area.

What makes this condo unique

We searched for many months for our condo. The day it went on the market, we raced up to Arkansas to check it out. The view, high in the trees from the Living Area and the Master Suite, sold us immediately! Plenty of birds and other wildlife on the forest floor below. Comfortable, living in a tree house. We placed it under contract that very night!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bill, Thank you for a wonderful stay in your lovely condo in Hot Springs. We were delighted with how beautiful the scenery is in those mountains. The condo was spotless and beautifully furnished. We were surprised at the special touches that you provided such as soap for dishes and to do laundry. We also enjoyed the snacks that you left for us. We enjoyed the fireplace and the fact that the wood was already on the porch. We had breakfast at the mountain lodge yesterday and it was great.

We did not experience any inconvenience by the brief time our power was out. It was nice that you checked on us.

We did notice some problem with the toilet in the master bedroom. It did not flush as well as it should. Glad you did provide a good plunger as we needed it several times. Since we were attending a wedding, we also missed having an iron and ironing board, also a full length mirror. With two women dressing for a wedding, we needed these two items. We did not have any extra bags for the trash compactor, but it all worked out. The kitchen was well supplied and it was great to have an ice maker in addition to the one in the refrigerator.

We would rate your condo a perfect "10," and already are making plans to return. So thanks again for allowing us to enjoy Thanksgiving in your home away from home.


Jean and Jim,

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. I will have someone check out the toliet in the master bedroom immediately. Thanks for letting me know. We like your suggestion of a full length mirror. We will install it on the back of the master bedroom door. Finally... I will follow up on the ironing board and iron. There is supposed to be one in the closet with the dryer. If not, I will get that corrected. Again, thank you so very much for allowing us to host your family over the Thanksgiving holiday. We will welcome the opportunity to welcome you again soon to Lake Ouachita.

Great Condo, wonderful location within Resort. Wonderful owner

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as pictured. Very clean, comfortable beds, well stocked. Enjoyed coffee on the deck every morning and watching the deer pass by. We would stay here again. I was impressed with Mountain Harbor Resort. Absolutely everyone we dealt with was friendly and accommodating. Hope we are able to return again sometime.

Smith Review 25D Pennisula Drive

  • 4 of 5

This is our second trip to this location. It was excellent like last year.

The only negative is not about the property, we had everything we needed and more.

I would have liked to have been able to check in maybe an hour earlier. The time to check in was 4:00. Traveling with Grandchildren. Would have been nice if we could have checked in by 3:00.

We loved it. It was a nice place to stay with plenty of room. Thanks Kathy Smith

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. We are sorry we could not give you early access. We had guests leave at 11 AM on your arrival day. It took our housekeeper every bit of 5 hours to properly clean , do laundry and prepare our home for you and your family. We hope we get to see you again soon!

Perfect location for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful, loved the photographs of the area hanging throughout! It was well equipped, clean, and very comfortable. They thought of everything; HBO, WiFi, fluffy pillows, and soft towels! The 2nd story view feels like you are in a treehouse! We like to head to this area each year to see the Fall colors! Bonus, we decided to zip line through the canopy to see the leaves up close! Just beautiful!

Car: recommended

Situated in beautiful Mountain Harbor Resort on Lake Ouachita, you'll find fantastic boating and water sports, world class fresh water fishing, incredible trails for hiking and mountain biking, and much much more. The tennis courts are located just behind our condo as is one of two swimming pools available for your use while staying with us. Nearby Mt Ida, AR claims to be 'The Quartz Crystal Capital of the World,' with many rock and crystal shops along Hwy. 270 and adjacent roadways.. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets grace the areas around our condo.

Great food awaits you as well. Check out the restaurant at the Shangri-La Resort, just minutes by car or boat from Mountain Harbor. This 50's era cafe has some of the best pies on the planet! You need to call in from the lake to reserve your favorite flavor (ours is the dutch apple) or chances are they will be out before you make it there most weekend days! Jenn's Gourmet Galley on Hwy 270 near the Mt. Ida Airport offers an eclectic (and delicious) menu. Their Sunday Brunch is very good. The restaurant at Mountain Harbor is delicious as well. Their cheeseburgers are amazing! Our favorite is the Chicken Strips...the serving is plenty for two adults!!

For relaxation, go for a massage or facial treatment at the award winning and nationally recognized Turtle Cove Spa. They are just five minutes (walking) from our condo. Be sure to call ahead for specials and to make reservations!

You are going to love your stay at our condo.
