About the property

National Forest 2br/2ba With Abundant Wildlife and Huge Deck Overlooking River

Rural private pet friendly setting in the picturesque Ouachita National Forest. Large picture windows covering two sides of this six sided house overlooking the Irons Fork River. This completely remodeled beautiful home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a brand new queen sleeper sofa, washer/dryer, central heat and air, wood burning fireplace along with full kitchen including range, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. Fully furnished with all utensils, pots, pans, and coffee pot along with linens and towels. Adding that special touch, including soaps, shampoos, coffee etc. make this a true home away from home. Living room has 50" plasma TV, DVD/VHS player, and several movies to choose from. Relax and de-stress on the extra large deck overlooking the water, or take a stroll among the many flower garden paths, or visit the fruit orchard only yards away. You most likely will see many wild animals including deer, bunnies, squirrels, armadillos and occasionally a bear with her cubs will stroll along the back of the field. This is a dry county, so if you want to indulge, you will need to bring it with you. Closest liquor store is 60 miles. The only internet we receive here is from our phones. Please print directions and map. GPS devices will most likely get you lost out here in the "sticks" lol. Rent for 5 nights (including weekend rates) and get 2 weeknights FREE. Also, Team National members receive additional discounts - call for details. Pet fee is $10 per pet per night with a $50 maximum fee charged.

Have never stayed in a place that was so together. Everything you need in basic needs provided. The quiet would inspire the best lines ever written in a song, sermon movie and book. Clean and ideal to recharge while unplugged. An 11 on a ten scale. Loved the bloodhound.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. We love the peace and tranquility this property provides. The bloodhound is the neighbor's, but loves to come visit. He is a sweetheart. Hope to see you again soon.

Absolutely perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We expected to enjoy our stay at The Glass House Retreat but had no idea that we were about to discover a little bit of Heaven on earth! It was even more beautiful than we expected! We can truly say from the moment we drove down the tree lined drive and glimpsed the welcoming lights of the Glass House we knew we had made the right choice for our much needed get-away. It was all so welcoming; the delicious fresh cookies, the "welcome David and Vicki" sign, soft music playing....everything was lovely and made us feel so special! The house is charming and spotlessly clean and comfortable and the view of the trees, river and wildlife beautiful beyond words. Roland and Becky are wonderful people and did everything they could to help us enjoy our stay....in fact we felt like we were staying with dear friends. We really did! We highly recommend The Glass House for honeymooners, family vacations or quiet get -aways as there's plenty to do on the property or in the area. Lots of great restaurants and antique stores just a few minutes away. We will go back to the Glass House regularly and think of it as "our special place". ........ David and Vicki Stohl

A Hidden Treasure!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful Getaway this is the place!!! I could have stayed here the whole trip with my cup of coffee on the deck by the creek and a good book! :D Roland and Becky greeted us as soon as we arrived and made us feel welcome! We really enjoyed all the extra's that Roland and Becky did for us to make it feel more at home. Very nice & clean place! A little about our stay here.... We visited the Historic Janssen Park and The Mena Depot and Antiquing then went to breakfast at the Queen's Restaurant (Also known as the "Castle in the sky " about 30 mins. away) after we went to "Little Missouri Falls" This was Beautiful!!! A must see if you are in the area. We must've stay about 2 hours relaxing here. ( from the The Glass House it was about an hour and half.) Some of the restaurants we ate at Papa's Cafe, Stache's, and Pasisano's Italian ( We enjoyed them all) After a long day we couldn't wait to get back to The Glass House Retreat to watched good movies and popcorn to relax. On our way back to Louisiana we decided to take the scenic drive and visited Lake Ouachita then to Hot Springs. We would highly Recommand this place! Thank you for sharing your Glass House Retreat with us! We will definitely go back! :D

Wonderful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, gracious hosts! We had a great retreat on this serene and peaceful slice of heaven. Becky and Roland had everything we needed, even home baked treats and fresh vegetables from the garden. Lots of extra amenities added to the welcoming touch. The property is secluded, yet convenient to town and activities. We plan to return and will definitely refer the Glass House retreat to friends and family.

Pick This One

  • 5 of 5

When looking for VRBO in Mena area you should pick this one if available! The owners made this place very inviting and comfortable. The deck that overlooks the water is about as peaceful as it gets. It is very easy access to get to and very safe environment if you have children. We enjoyed meeting the owners and having them go over things in the house. This made it so much easier and they were a joy to talk to. Other than at our arrival we neither heard or saw anyone so you privacy is respected. My husband and I will for sure return. Thank you for sharing your lovely Glass House Retreat.

Loved our stay. Enjoyed feeding fish off the deck and four wheeling to the lake.

Enjoyed walking my dogs and seeing deer and squirrels on the property.

Home is very nice inside and out.

Owners very friendly and helpful.
