We'd like to introduce you to our family.
"It was over 55 years ago when my father, Hal Barnes, on an Arkansas vacation, discovered a beautiful Arkansas lake in the heart of the Ouachita National Forest. Before returning home with us, Dad presented a bid to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for a lease on a beautiful harbor, which was to become Mountain Harbor Resort on Lake Ouachita. It was his dream to build on the raw shoreline beneath the rolling slopes of Hickory Nut Mountain. That dream became Mountain Harbor has since grown to encompass three beautiful Arkansas lakes: Lake Ouachita, Lake Greeson and DeGray Lake.
Iron Mountain Lodge and Marina on DeGray Lake, Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa on Lake Ouachita, Self Creek Lodge and Marina on Lake Greeson and Harbor House on the River now make up our Tri-Pennant Family of Resorts. These Arkansas resorts are family owned and operated, and we have over five decades of lake resort management experience. Not only do we share the tri-pennant in each of our logos, but we also bring you our heritage of offering the finest in Arkansas resort facilities and personal service.
We invite you to visit each of our properties—and let us know what you think!"
