Property description

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.
Prairie Creek Cottage is a 2 unit property with every care given to ensure the privacy of our guests. The second unit is a one bedroom cottage that is generally rented on a weekly basis for guests who plan to stay in town a little longer. Please feel free to call if you have any questions about either unit. The reservation calendar is accurate for the STUDIO pictured in this listing so please feel free to use the “Book It Now” feature.

Enjoy the privacy of the country without leaving the convenience of town. No through traffic and plenty of room to stretch out during your stay. Enjoy walks along paved road and beautiful views of neighboring horse farms. Fish the creek or enjoy a leisurely kayak trip downstream and back. We also have another property listed as Prairie Creek Cabin if this property is not available for your stay. We also own and operate the Sassafras Inn which sleeps up to 8.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

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

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy the privacy of the country without leaving the convenience of town. No through traffic and plenty of room to stretch out during your stay. Enjoy walks along paved road and beautiful views of neighboring horse farms. Fish the creek or enjoy a leisurely kayak trip downstream and back.
