About Ashley Vacca

Scott and Ashley own and operate The Carriage House Inn, catering to travelers of all sorts. Before moving to Mena in 2005, they both traveled extensively for both work and pleasure, seeking out the unexpected to fully experience the city or town they were visiting.

The Inn currently has 3 guest cottages (perfect for families, couples or long-term guests) and 3 queen rooms (all private with outside entrances).

Ashley Vacca purchased this cottage in 2005

History Fun

  • 5 of 5

I loved the accommodations. The host was very helpful and pleasant. I was flabbergasted about how beautiful the grounds were and we were close to everything in town. I would strongly suggest the carriage house to anyone who plans to travel to Mena or the surrounding sites to see.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to the spacious "Cottage" with sweets on the entry table! Ashley was very welcoming and professional throughout our stay. We only stayed a short while, but wished it were longer! It was a beautiful cottage, and a fabulous accommodation for us! There's no place better in Mena! Thank you, Ashley!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the cottage was a fantastic experience. We stayed over Thanksgiving and we just wanted a place to relax and unwind. This was the perfect fit. Mena is a small town - but it was a nice change from the hustle and bustle of busy Dallas. Beautiful scenery. We would definitely go back. Ashley was a great hostess - even though she wasn't home. Perfect all the way around.
