Overview

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.

We loved how it was right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here! Roland and Becky were very welcoming and the house was stocked with whatever you need, including chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we got there! We loved how secluded it was, how the windows really opened up the house to the outside, and how we were right on the water! We enjoyed sitting on the big deck listening to the water from the river and the rest of nature! We grilled out on the BBQ grill almost every night! We caught a 1.5lb bass, 3 bluegills, a baby channel catfish, and a baby bullhead catfish. During our stay we visited Queen Wilhelmina State Park (the view is amazing!), ate at Southern Belle restaurant in Oklahoma, went fishing at Lake Ouachita, dug for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park, enjoyed some snow cones in the town of Mena, and just enjoyed hanging around the property. It was so quite and relaxing! We were sad to leave!

Very peaceful. Perfect place to get away.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed our stay at the Glass House Retreat. The home was perfectly snuggled away in the country, right next to a flowing creek. I also really enjoyed walking around the little paths that surrounded the house and seeing the beautiful landscaping. Everything flowed so seamlessly with nature. The home is very clean and well kept. My kids really enjoyed catching so many bass and catfish from the dock. We forgot to bring fishing worms, so we used raw bacon for bait. I think they like bacon more then worms. I hope to return one day.

Beautiful property, well taken care of..

  • 5 of 5

Arriving to the gate and coming up the driveway was a treat in itself. What a gorgeous place. We loved Having water right there outside our door. Fish were easy to catch! Many amenities in the house and with the owners living right on the property you feel very safe. Fresh flowers cut from the garden were a treat and garden were lovely! We had a great time!

Exceeded Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful. Inviting. Peaceful. Quiet. Restful. Serene. It is everything we need in a vacation get-away. And location, location, location is everything! It is at the end of a dead-end road so there aren't constant traffic noises filtering into the serenity. Yet, it is close enough to town and state parks and even the state-line that you don't exhaust yourself driving to get to the great hiking, fishing, and other activities available in the surrounding areas. And no matter where you go, the drive there and back is beautiful! Ahhhhh.

The Retreat itself is well stocked. Becky and Roland literally thought of everything! It is without a doubt, the most beautiful and most comfortable place we have booked. It literally is the first place we have chosen that was everything the promo said, AND MORE! The photos don't do justice. Can not wait to go back! Thank you for everything!

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was exactly as described on the Homeaway Site. Our goal was to get away from it all and find a place where we could enjoy some peace and quiet, this was the place. If we wanted to get out and about, Mena and the mountains were only a short drive away. Roland and Becky were the perfect hosts who introduced themselves and then stepped away. When Roland and Becky say everything but food is provided they weren't kidding! Their dogs came to visit everyday and were perfectly well mannered.

Owner's Response: Dan, We are happy you were able to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet out here in the National Forest. Cooper (our dog) loved the smell of you cooking on the grill. Thanks again and hope to see you again soon.

outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

we have rented vacation rentals all over tennessee and arkansas and i can truthfully say this was the most well taken care of and relaxing place we have stayed in.Roland and Becky were extremely nice and greet you upon arrival to show you some of the ins and outs of the place.[also fresh baked cookies on the bar].[lemon/blueberry,yumyum.]the openness of the living room/dining room is great for everyone and lots of room to gather together in the evenings.they have thought of just about everything thing you could possibly need there,Beckys personal touch is evident in this home.the home is very secluded yet you are only about a 15 minute drive from Mena.it's a wonderful view of the river with all the windows all around the living and dining area.you can tell this is not one of those rentals where the owner is somewhere else and pays someone to clean it between renters,they really want their guest to be to be taken care of.you won't be dissapointed if you stay here.thanks for the Anniversary decorations Becky!!!Also thank You for mailing back those parts to our sons wheelchair that we forgot and left up there.
