Mena cottage description

The house is both straw bale and traditional stick built with three bedrooms and two bathes as well as an outdoor shower. There is also a small office/utility room that has a twin bed and a sun room with a twin bed. There is a pond in front of the house so you can watch the fisherman in the family. The house was designed for outdoor living, with windows that have screens and ceiling fans, though there is air conditioning in all rooms for those who suffer from the heat. The patio is a wonderful place to spend time just soaking in the beauty of nature.In the evening it is lit with amber lighting which gives off a soft light. It is an extremely snug house for winter days, with a fire in the wood burning stove and the fire place lit. There is electric heat if you are not a fire bug. There is also a play house for the kids with a T.V. and DVD player.

                  we are near the largest ATV trails in the nation. One hour from Hot Springs, where you can tour the old bath houses and take hot bathes in the natural spring water. There is also a museum about the gangsters that hung out there in the good old bad old days. Just an hour and a half away is the only diamond mine in North America and you can keep any diamonds you find. There are also crystal mines in the area. There is a crystal clear swimming whole five minutes away and it is 15 miles to some beautiful waterfalls plus miles of hiking trails. Fort Smith is about and hour and a half away. There is a museum there that has the court room of the famous hanging judge.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I am a artist and work in clay and fiber. Clay was my first love and so I make pottery and sculpt in it. Fiber came along later and I found that weaving is great in the winter when I just cant face getting my hands wet.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mena:
                  This property spoke to me the first time I saw it. Everything I looked at after seeing it just did not touch me the same way.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  It is secluded as it is in what is called a hollow. There is a great pond for fishing and lots of room for walking.
