Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Mena - The Glass House Retreat

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.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

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.

Glass House Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Glass House. It is a very peaceful, tree covered "get away" with a stream right next to and below the front porch deck (I fed about 20 fish from the deck). The cabin is very uniquely shaped and constructed (with all the pane glass). Comfortable beds. In addition to the listed amenities, the very gracious hosts provide a lot of thoughtful extra's.

The Glass House Retreat in Mena, AR.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, peaceful stay in a lovely wooded area next to a creek outside Mena, AR.

Roland and Becky were very congenial hosts, sharing their lovely house as well as leaving fresh baked cookies. Yum! We were greeted every day by Cooper, their friendly and sweet German Shepherd.

We enjoyed antiquing in the area and made a day trip to Hot Springs.

We would recommend the Glass House Retreat to anyone looking for a peaceful place to spend some leisure time.

Thanks, Roland and Becky for a great vacation!
