About the owner: 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!
Why the Owner Chose Mena: Spacious, relaxing place to unwind with all the comforts of home surrounded by the peace and beauty of mother nature's gifts
