Ouachita Mountain cabin With 1 queen bed, 2 singles, Jacuzzi Bath, Open Concept Floorplan With Fireplace—near Mena, AR.
This wonderful cabin is your private retreat in the woods, yet just 2 miles on pavement to Mena, AR. It features a fully equipped kitchen, Jacuzzi bath, separate shower, fireplace, sun-porch and deck.
The cabin sits on several wooded acres, near the border of the Forest Service, and only about 150 ft. from the County Road 402, which is a picturesque way to ride to Wolfpen Gap, one of the largest trail parks in the state.
We are just 5 minutes from the charming county seat town of Mena, with its nice art district, good antique shops, and old-timey downtown with the original buildings from the time the railroads were built and the town was born. Yet we do have a 24/7 Walmart, a live theater, movie theater, and lots of festivals.
The open concept living room's focal point is a cozy fireplace (it’s gas, an easy way to take the chill off on cool evenings as well as contribute to the cozy ambiance). There is a queen-size canopy bed downstairs as well as two singles upstairs. With the leather sofa (not sofa-bed) in the living area and another sofa on the sun-porch, there is room for up to six people to stay—and 2 children under 12 stay free. We have a Pack-n-play if a baby is a guest too!
There is a flat screen TV (no cable) with DVD and vintage VCR with a large selection of movies! Of course, there is Internet access too, and a desk to do work if you need to.
The charming “Little House on the Prairie” country kitchen has a view of the living area. And, the kitchen is equipped with full-size refrigerator, cooktop, microwave, convection oven, coffeemaker, toaster, dishes, pots and pans. We also stock basic staples such as coffee, sugar, tea, salt and pepper, and also condiments like ketchup and mustard. The local water here is so good you will not want bottled water, and has been tested periodically for safety.
The quiet, paved county road 42 is good for hiking, biking, or just a leisurely stroll after supper to enjoy nature.
If you like wildlife watching, just sit outside on your deck (or simply look out any window from your sun-porch) in the morning or maybe at sunset and don't be surprised if you see squirrels and birds watching you. We will keep a supply of feed available to give them a treat. The wooden rocker on the deck is close to the hummingbird feeder, and if you catch it just right, a beam of sunlight filters down between the forest trees and strikes the feeder and illuminates the hummers.
As owners, we take pride in keeping the cabin up to your expectations. We have long-term trusted housekeepers who love cleaning the cabin just for you. We have been the owners for 20 years, and our goal is to do all we can to ensure your visit here is pleasant.
Activities; Just half hour to crystal clear Cossatot River swimming, fishing, tubing. Just minutes to Walmart and theater and shops, including art galleries and antiques. You can ride your ATV from the cabin through the Ouachita National Forest about 7 miles to the WolfPen Gap trails; or trailer ATV and take highway to the Wolfpen Gap trails.
