About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

The Forest Gate vacation home is a large, 4000 sq ft two-story house surrounded by forest in a park-like setting, on 10 secluded and private acres. 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. Enjoy ATVs and horseback riding. Rentals are locally available.

Owner info

About the owner: We are from the Dallas Fort Worth area and bought this house as a vacation home because we loved getting away to the mountains, lakes and rivers available in the "Natural State" of Arkansas. It is only a 4-1/2 to 5 hour drive and great for a three day weekend.

Why the Owner Chose Mena, AR, USA:
We bought this property for it's easy access into the National Forest for ATVing and riding our horses right off the property. Our family and friends have spent many great times and made some wonderful memories here over the years.
