“ACTS Women's Relaxing Resort Get-Away Retreat”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Cottage Rooms have beautiful Lake Views, with Hot Tubs & Grills on Decks. The rooms have a quiet atmosphere, are beautifully decorated, and come with Fire Places, Laundry Rooms, WiFi, Flat Screens, and fully stocked Kitchens. The Spa treatments are wonderfully relaxing and refreshing. The Party Barge Boat ride and leisure at the Marina are breath-taking. Basketball and Tennis Courts and Walking Trail are also available for outside fitness! Meeting Space and Outside Pavilion with Bon Fires are great! The overall weekend trip was truly Excellent! See our photos on Facebook at #ActsWomenRetreat2014

Room Tip: Choose one of the Gorgeous rooms in Harbor North or 80B Peninsula Drive! They are very nice!

Ms. Jackie, you are always so gracious! That's what makes serving you such a pleasure. We look forward every year to welcoming you and the ladies back to Harbor. We love watching you transform the facilities into exotic retreats, but, by far, the very part for us is just having the opportunity to serve such warm, wonderful guests!

This was our 2nd stay at Mountain Harbor. The rooms are right on the lake. You have a great view of the marina. Everything is comfortable and clean. The food at the lodge is awesome! Everyone that works there was very friendly.

Me and my family stayed in C14 and as soon as I walked in I fell in love! We actually got married on the back deck because the view and sunset were amazing. It will definetly always be a place we visit frequently.

Mountain Harbor is truly a spectacular place. Whether you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, or planning a family reunion, wedding or lake party, Mountain Harbor is THE place to go! From economical lodge rooms, Cottages or Cabanas to spacious 1, 2 or 3 bedroom condos, Mountain Harbor is sure to please any budget. Even if you are not necessarily a "lake" person, there is plenty to do here at this fully functioning resort. Take a dip in either one of the sparkling pools, challenge someone on the tennis courts, or have a relaxing massage in the spa right there on property! They also have Horseback riding and carriage rides, nature trails to hike or bike, and plenty of beautiful scenes to take in. The food is incredible with daily scruptious soups to perfectly prepared steaks....don't forget the Blackberry cobbler to top it all off! Nevertheless, the service here is impecable and they always treat you like family! Try it out, you won't be sorry!

Room Tip: Most condos have jacuzzis.....great to relax after a fun day on the lake

We have been coming to Mt Harbor for many years. We have stayed in the 2 bedroom lakefront cabins which were clean, comfortable, and had amazing views, and have also stayed in a 2 bedroom condo that was tastefully decorated. The whole area within Mt Harbor is so nice and tranquil during the off season, it's a great time to relax and hike/walk, or fish....or visit the spa. We love the area so much that we bought a condo in the Harbor East section of the resort several years ago. The restaurant has a pretty good menu, although it would be great to see a few more non fried items. And yes, there is no liquor served, but you can bring your own (they have wine glasses and corkscrew). Boating season is awesome, and the marina has pretty much everything you need to make it a great time....even Subway. I would love to see an ice cream shack for the summer season though! Staff is friendly and welcoming.

Mountain Harbor is THE place in central Arkansas to do a wedding. Very reasonable pricing for multiple venues and generous discounts for their wonderful lodging to add to it! We got married at the East Cove Conference Center and stayed in the 80BPD condo for the weekend. The condo was not only a 3-4 minute walk from the wedding venue, but was PERFECT for housing us and our wedding party for the weekend. The downstairs suite was perfect for the girls getting ready, while the guys had everything above. As for the venue, Ashley did a fantastic job asking us what we wanted set up and it was just that when we got there that weekend. The spacious kitchen was ideal for any caterer, and Mountain Harbor does one clean-up (within reason, of course)! We got the place Friday at noon and didn't have to be out until Sunday at noon! When do you have time given to you like that at a wedding venue? I could go on and on, but I just have to say that I wouldn't have changed a thing about my wedding. It was amazing and I owe it in a major part to Ashley Dees and the other Mountain Harbor staff.
