Mena house description

The Forest Gate vacation home is a large, two-story home surrounded by forest in a park-like setting, secluded and private. This log and cedar home has a rustic elegance, beautifully furnished and comfortable, even to those with discriminating tastes. An outdoor cooking area under the pine trees has three large picnic tables beside a small pond suitable for casual gatherings.

A baby grand piano graces the main living room, perfect for sing-a-longs in the evenings. A large rock fireplace anchors the sitting room in the log cabin portion of the home and inspires curling up with a good book. Although remote, the house is easily accessible from the highway and only 14 miles from the town of Mena, where there are many opportunities for casual dining. Take the scenic Talimena drive accessed from Main St. in Mena or drive one hour east to Pencil Bluff and rent a canoe from a local outfitter.
