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!

We are located in the heart of the world-famous crystal mining area. Please bring your own tools, towels (cleaning rags) and old clothes if you plan to dig for crystals, and wash off well with the hose before you enter the house because the earth clings to everything and will stain everything red.

This place was absolutely huge!

  • 4 of 5

This property was huge, especially for the two of us and our little dog. We mainly just used the front bedroom with the large bathroom and didn't even go down the hall except when we first arrived. The living area was also gigantic and would easily fit a large group of people, AND the entire place was spotlessly clean! If you have a large group or a family reunion, this would be an excellent choice. There was a doggie door and a fenced in area for the pets but we did not use it even though it looked well secured. If you bring a boat there is plenty of room for parking it out front. There are several boat launches very near this rental. The front porch swing was wonderful, as was the stream running in front of the house. Not only would kids enjoy playing in the stream, there was a basketball goal for more recreation. I heartily recommend this rental for a group or anyone that wants a clean and comfortably place to stay.

Where do you live?

Overall a great place to stay when visiting the crystal mines around Mt. Ida

  • 5 of 5

House was clean and no sign of bugs. Bed was comfortable, just wish it was king size. Lots of towels in both bathrooms that was nice, however they smelled a little musty maybe from sitting in the washing machine too long. Couches were comfy and having a washer and dryer was a big plus. We came to Mt Ida to dig in the quartz crystal mines. This house was a great central location. Plus short drive to Hot Springs. Owner and neighbors were very nice. Thanks you and we will plan on staying here again when we return.

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Ana. I understand about that morning light in the middle bedroom. We've had many compliments on the forest view from that room so we've let the curtains cover just the bottom half of the windows. I'm glad your family enjoyed its stay other than that. Best wishes to you all.

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.
