About the property

Relax & renew in this peaceful forested home just 6 minutes from Lake Ouachita

All the comforts of home but with that cabin feeling!

If you're looking for a relaxing place to stay, choose this quiet forested residential neighborhood on a short road with only 6 homes, and each home sits on at least 7 acres.

Here you'll enjoy a stream that flows all year around, deer in your yard, butterflies, small lizards, wildflowers, birds singing all day and a million stars and lightning bugs at night.

Boat rental is available at Mountain Harbor Marina, which is about 15 minutes away. And if you bring your own boat, you can launch it at the Twin Creeks Recreational park, which is about 6 minutes from the house. There's room to keep your boat trailer on site at our vacation home.

Our favorite swimming place is the Twin Creeks Recreational park, too. And the stream that runs around our property is a great place for safe, clean wading.

This home features:

2 Queen beds, 2 Double beds, & a futon mattress for floor sleeping

2 full bathrooms

Large living room with 2 couches

DSL WIFI and ethernet

About Sharon Burch

I'm a nurse from Indiana who's lived in this area for 13 years. I no longer live on this property, but I have friends who caretake it and I'm available to you by phone and text from 9 am to 9 pm.

There is another renter who lives in a small cottage close to the vacation home. She is often gone, so you probably won't see her.

The people who live in this neighborhood are friendly and laid back. Come and have a great time!

Sharon Burch purchased this house in 2004

Beautiful scenery

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was wonderful. The only downfall would be the middle room with two beds not having blinds on the window to stop all the light from shining in. Besides that it was amazing. I would rent this cabin over again if needed too. It was clean and plenty room for my family of 8 to sleep comfortably. The kids loved having easy access to a cold Creek as well.

Quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Just outside the sleepy town of Mt. Ida this was a good location to access Ouichta Lake and lots of lovely parks. We did spend a day in Hot Springs as well, just a 45 min. drive away.

Comfortable, peaceful, simple house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over a recent long weekend. There were seven people in our group. The house was clean, comfortable, and had plenty of room. And the property (and stream) are beautiful. The kids (two teenagers and three 20-somethings) had a GREAT time.

(A larger fry pan, sauce pan, and mixing bowl would be helpful for cooking large dinners... but that was SUCH a minor thing!)

We would definitely stay on the beautiful property again!! Thank you for opening your house to us!!

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!
