Our studio suite opened in May 2014. The cottage is located a few minutes from downtown Mena, where you can enjoy the privacy and beautiful views shared by Mena residents in this Ouachita Golf Course community. This 1 bedroom/1 bath studio is equipped with all the comforts of home including a covered patio and a great 16x20 deck outfitted with patio furniture and a bbq grill. This shared deck includes outdoor lights and plenty of space to kick your feet up and relax at the end of a long day.
Wood laminate flooring runs throughout the living areas where you will find a queen sleeper sofa, a large TV with satellite programming, comfortable recliner, and a selection of books to enjoy during your stay. Kitchen appliances include a stove, full size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker w/supplies for the duration of your stay. In the cabinets you will find dishes and flatware for 8, and cooking utensils. Iron and ironing board are also provided.
A King bed with luxury linens and a flat panel TV that rotates so it is viewable from both the living room and bedroom make the bedroom the perfect place to end the day. A king size bed and queen size sleeper sofa both purchased in May 2014 provide comfortable sleeping for 4.
A fenced pet play area allows your four legged friends to stretch their legs and enjoy the great outdoors. Take them for a walk to the creek where they can splash their paws or watch you fish or kayak.

My husband and I relocated to Mena in 2010 and have fallen in love with the community and the great outdoors. We built this property as a guest house for visiting friends and family on the outskirts of 20 acres in a great neighborhood. We took up residence on the far side of the property so that we and our guests could enjoy this great location but still maintain that feeling of privacy. We lived in the cottage for 2 years while deciding on where to make our permanent home. After buying our neighbors house on the adjoining property and settling in to our new home, we finished out the second half of the building into this great studio for VRBO guests to enjoy. We hope you enjoy your stay!

Received this handwritten note from guest who was traveling through and needed to stay that same night:
"Thank you so much for accommodating us at the last minute. you have a wonderful place here and we wish we could have stayed longer. We plan on sharing your place with friends. We really enjoyed our stay." Cindy from Texas
The studio was modern and very nice. We had a great time. The kayaks they provided were an experience we did not expect but ended up being one of our favorite parts of the trip.
This cottage was as described but could have been a perfect stay with added instructions to operate the AC. The door was also very hard to close securely. The property is only minutes from Mena and perfect for a couple but probably a little tight for four. I would stay here again.
My husband and I are coming back to the Mena area and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The studio has everything we need and then some. They have thought of everything. These are such nice people you could never go wrong renting anything from them. We stayed at their Inn in town for a few days too. Their son made us feel so comfortable in our lovely bedroom. My husband is disabled and unsure of staying in a inn, but their son made us feel like it was our own home. He will make a superb innkeeper. You have to have the personality for the hospitality industry and they all have it. We would definitely recommend any of their properties in the Mena area. They have made us remember why we came HOME!!!
We came to Mena to meet up with our daughter and grandson. We were bringing our dog and hers as she will be keeping them for a few weeks. The owner was very accommodating and we booked after seeing exactly the location. The location sounded too good to be true-bit it was just as advertised. Mena is a cute town that was fun exploring.
I have rented this cottage on 2 occasions. Once for my class reunion pre-party, and everyone absolutely loved it and loved the deck! The perfect "party island"! The cottage itself is very nicely equipped, super clean, very comfortable and stylish. The owners are great! I would recommend this property to any of my friends and family.
The cottage was exactly as advertised with all pictures being completely current. I stayed for 2 months during a work assignment. It's located only 5 minutes from the center of town, but feels absolutely secluded with the lush foliage and a small stream just steps from the door. I can't say enough nice things about the owners, they were absolutely wonderful. I was a very long way from home and family, and the owners made me feel like I was part of theirs. If you're going to be in area for an extended stay like me or just for a night or 2, you're not going to find a better place to stay than this little cottage in the woods.
Enjoy golf, fishing, ATV riding, hiking, mountain biking, scenic drives, kayaking, canoeing all within a 15 minute drive. Dine at local restaurants where live music plays weekly.
Stroll around Jannsen Park while the kids play, hike any number of trails through Queen Wilhelmina State Park and the Ouachita National Forrest. Kayak or canoe the Ouachita River or the Cossatot - watch out for the 'washing machine' class IV rapids on the Cossatot!
Visit our local downtown shops and art museum where you will find many unique items and some really friendly people! Spend an afternoon or evening at the historic Little Ouachita Theater where local talent performs great works weekly.
