About Sharon Burch

I'm a nurse from Indiana who's lived in this area for 13 years. I enjoy animals, nature and swimming in Lake Ouachita. I live on this 7-acre property in a small cottage near the vacation home. In the warm months, I'm on my sailboat most of the time. The people here are friendly and laid back. Come and have a great time!

Sharon Burch purchased this house in 2004

Great value and privacy for a personal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed the property and the location. This house is SO BIG! it has 3 bedrooms and lots of extra beds, so your whole family would have plenty of room. The location is very very convenient! you are right up the road from Wegner mine, Crystal Seen (which we recommend both places) and only a couple miles outside Mount Ida.

Its very quiet at this house, there is a stream across the street and we saw lots of deer and birds. We were very warm (March) and enjoyed the privacy.

If you really like to cook, you may want to bring some of your own cooking pans and stuff, there are some there but they are teflon coated and only a few items. A skillet, a couple of sauce pans. Probably fine for most people. Also, if you want to bath in the tub bring a stopper because we could not make what was there work...gave up on a bath! The shower was fine though. Towels are old, but hey, they work and there are plenty of them!

I've stayed at lots of VRBO around the world. This is not a luxury house. But, it is VERY comfortable and convenient, and for what we wanted to do (dig crystals) it was PERFECT. Sharon is knowledgeable and nice, and we will definitely come back for another stay!

Digging for Crystals

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice 3 day getaway to Mt Ida, Arkansas. Location was perfect for what we wanted to do. Dig for crystals, hike, and be near Lake Ouachita. The hiking was great because it was along the lake high on a hill. Great views.

Location is 30 minutes away from Hot Springs.

The three bedroom house was very comfortable. The bedrooms are separated so nice if you have friends or family.

Liked that the home was in a private quiet neighborhood. Nice creek running by property.

The water pressure is great, surprised that there was a jetted tub in the bathroom. Loved that the house had Roku so that we could watch Netflix.

Only disappointment was that we didn't get to meet Sharon the owner.

We are already thinking about when we can go back again.

Backwoods Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay while completing some of the tasks associated with the purchase of undeveloped land and decided it was too cold to live in a tent for a week. The options were a motel room or a VRBO and since we don't leave home without our 140# Great Pyr we chose the latter. My wife found this pet friendly home within five minutes of our property and we decided to give it a try. What a treasure! If you like staying in a clean, well maintained dwelling in a serene location this is the place. Beautiful surroundings with very little traffic from the distant neighbors along with the sounds of the creek and Cardinals make this a place that is hard to leave. We will stay here again if the need arises and we're lucky enough to find it vacant. Thanks Sharon for a great stay!

Loved the house, it felt like a cabin. Loved being able to walk out the front door and the creek was right there.

Magical Crystal Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Mt. Ida with my 3 daughters, 12, 9 and 7. We LOVED our stay place. It was quiet, clean and peaceful and there was enough room for all of us to have plenty of room inside and outside. We were provided with plenty of materials to find amazing things to do. We swam in a nearby crystal lake everynight and if it got hot we took a dip in the cool spring on the property we stayed on. We got to go crystal digging and had so much fun finding beautiful crystals. It was close enough to take a day trip to Hot Springs. It was such a perfect vacation and we cant wait to go back.
