Dena and I woke up the next morning to see the beautiful lake, and I realized just how gorgeous and serene this setting really was. After enjoying the view and some coffee, it was time to tour Mountain Harbor and have lunch at Turtle Cove Spa. Pati (who I named the Martha Stewart of Arkansas) toured us around the 900-acre resort, which includes its award-winning marina, full-service spa, restaurant, cabins, condos and group meeting space.
After the tour and a delicious lunch at Turtle Cove Spa (www.TurtleCoveSpa.com), it was treatment time. Many thanks to spa owner Deb and spa manager Kristi for such a warm welcome. I cannot thank Jennifer enough for the wonderful facial. I enjoyed learning about all of the products she was using, and her helpful “wrinkle eraser” tips are much appreciated! Tranquility is the key here at Turtle Cove, and you will find more than 100 turtles nestled throughout the spa. They even have their own turtle candles and turtle tea, so clever!
As I left the spa, I was completely relaxed. In fact, we were so relaxed back at the cabin that we opted for dinner in. Yes, the Mountain Harbor folks delivered dinner to our cabin, and Pati poured her delicious Pomegranate Cocktails and even made brie with my initials on it. I love her! After dinner, Dena and I jumped into the hot tub and watched the lake sparkle as the moon hit the water just right. With wine in hand, we chatted and laughed for several hours.
