About the property

Light & Airy Upper Level Condo/ 1 minute walk to Harbor East Pool

Looking for that place at the lake that feels like home without the worries? This is it!

Welcome to Lake Ouachita's finest resort community - Mountain Harbor! This well maintained resort abounds with amenities including outdoor pools, tennis and basketball courts, riding stables, full service spa, and easy access to hiking trails that will lead you through the gorgeous Ouachita National Forest.

Our condo is just the right place to spend time with family and friends while enjoying the beauty and serenity of Lake Ouachita (pronounced "Washitaw"). You will be pleasantly surprised by all the amenities in this 1000 sqft Fully furnished condo that comfortably sleeps 4 adults between the 2 bedrooms and living room sofa.

As you arrive, you will find yourself walking into a light and airy entry way that leads you through the kitchen and into the living and dining areas where you will find a natural stone wood burning fireplace and sliding doors to the large deck. Wood is provided for the fireplace.

The living room offers 3 reclining seats to relax in at the end of a day of fun on the lake where you can enjoy satellite programming on a 40" flat panel tv or gazing at a nice fire on those cooler nights when a wood burning fire just makes everything better.

The kitchen was remodeled in 2012 and is well equipped with dishes, cookware, utensils, paper goods, and small appliances. Paper goods include paper towels, napkins, plates, cups, plastic wrap, and foil. Coffee and condiments are provided for the standard coffee maker and a Keurig is available with a variety of k-cups provided.

Dining is easy with 4 seats at the table and 2 more at the kitchen bar.

The Master Suite offers a king size bed, dresser, night tables, lamps, and tv. Sliding doors also lead to the deck where you can enjoy the peaceful view of the Ouachita National Forest.

The second bedroom offers a king size bed, dresser, and night table. The hall bath can be made private to this bedroom by closing a door in the hallway. This is a great feature if only the bedrooms are used for sleeping quarters - it's like having 2 master suites! Both beds purchased new May 2016.

The condo is fully stocked with linens for the beds and bathrooms including some extra pillows, sheets, and blankets for anyone who may like to stretch out on the living room sofa. You will also find 2 child size sleeping bags, over 20 board/card games, 4 tennis rackets, basketball, 4 square ball, and pool noodles, beach towels, and extra ice chests.

On the back deck, you will find patio dining furniture for 4 and a charcoal grill plus a 2 seater glider. Turn on the ceiling fan to add to the breeze while you relax and enjoy the gorgeous "treehouse" like view. Keep your eyes open for deer thta frequently graze within view from the deck.

A short walk (less than a minute) takes you to Harbor East Pool, Tennis & Basketball Courts, and Pavilion where you can play or relax. There are several great shaded areas overlook the pool so you can be cool and comfortable while the kids play. Pools are generally not crowded.

About Janee Sweeney

My husband and I relocated from Central Arkansas to Mena in 2010 and have fallen in love with the community and the great outdoors. Along they way, we discovered GORGEOUS Lake Ouachita. After summers at the lake and long drives home, Kevin and I decided to purchase a condo at Mt Harbor Resort. We were so fortunate to find one that was move in ready, in a very desirable location, and fell in love with this open and airy unit. We have several vacation properties including an Inn in Mena and have had a wonderful experience as VRBO owners. Making this condo available as a vacation rental made good business sense to us as we will only use it a few times a year. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Janee Sweeney purchased this condo in 2015

Why Janee Sweeney chose Mount Ida

We have been looking for a retirement base in Arkansas so when that day comes, we can have a low maintenance and comfortable place to spend near family. This seemed like a great option that we can enjoy now and later. Growing up in Arkansas and spending time at various condos in Mt Harbor over the years, we have observed the commitment to quality of Mt Harbor owners, POA's, and staff. This resort has a very positive and respectable reputation among Arkansans, owners, and visitors that gives us a peace of mind in making a long term commitment to join the group of owners at Mt. Harbor.

What makes this condo unique

As soon as we walked in, we both said "We'll take it!". This unit is on the upper level with a moderate set of steps that leads to a light and airy open living, kitchen, and dining area with a vaulted ceiling, skylight, and floor to ceiling windows all the way around - STUNNING natural light! The rooms are freshly painted and all flooring has been recently updated. Appliances in the kitchen were all purchased new in 2012.

Outside, you will find a deck that is larger than many of the resort's other units and is also finished with a pebbled rock. From the deck, you will feel like you are in a treehouse. The back of the property is nothing but Ouachita National Forest as far as you can see. In winter months, the lake is visible through the trees.

Both bedrooms are large and have access to private full baths.

Cozy cabin with view of the forest

  • 5 of 5

I was here for a weekend with my family. Loved the cabin! It is very cozy and cute and we absolutely loved it! It was hard for us to leave this place. The deck has a view of the forest and is very beautiful!

The instructions to get in were very clear and we had no trouble in any way. Would love to come back here to unwind and relax!

Family had a wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife and two daughters) stayed here as an escape before the kid's school started. We had a wonderful time, everything was as expected and Janee was very prompt answering anytime we had questions. Being able to rent the owners boat was a nice touch as we spent most of our days on the lake hopping from island to island.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was perfect. Once we opened the door to the condo and walked in all we could say was "wow". the place was clean and organized, plus owner took time and money to keep everything well stocked on supplies. The area the Condo was located was very peaceful and quiet, the view from the porch was amazing. The people who work and manage the place very nice and accommodating. The Mountain Harbor Marina has some wonderful employees, plus the restaurant was all we needed for our dining needs. The Joplin General store was very nice too, great people work there, awesome sandwiches! The hiking was very nice too, such and awesome lake, so beautiful and clean!! We hope to return this Fall, would love to see the trees turn.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your condo. It met every expectation. Had coffee out on the balcony every morning watching the squirrels. Having use of the pontoon boat was a plus for us. It was so convenient to just drive a block down to the boat with all our coolers. Our family already has plans to return to our favorite lake. Thank you. HIghly recommend Red Bird!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

The moment I walked in I was impressed. The condo is very well decorated and comfortable. We cooked a lot and found the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. The beds in both rooms were excellent which is so important for an enjoying stay. We loved the quite balcony view of the woods. It was so peaceful. We fished everyday on the lake and tore up the bass and white perch. Fishing was amazing. We are looking forward to returning in the summer. Thank you Jannee for a wonderful stay.
