We appreciate your interesting review! There was a lot of suspense in trying to figure out where you were! There being so many low lying areas around you, and so much rain yet to come AND dusk on the way! Without seeming anxious, we certainly were glad when you said you were on Highway 71 and heading south to Mena.... More

I was one of a legal team that stayed a week with Edith. It was wonderful to come "home" to her house every day and have space to spread out and continue working. Her wonderful screened-porch was the perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee and her dog, Bit. Breakfast was great although I couldn't eat... More

Thanks for your taking the time to write an ABears Den review. We always enjoy hearing from our guests. We have a hard time believing how much the screening of the back porch area has improved our already desirable porch and patio! Our contractor, MSBI, (also our son, lol) did a wonderful job!👍👏. We are so glad you were happy... More

Elegantly decorated house with very personable hostess. Served a hardy delious breakfast on a table setting that would grace any magazine cover. Set on a large manacured lot in the heart of the city but so quite you'd think you were in the mountains. Spend some time in relaxed conversation on the spacious screened-in back porch.

I've stayed here three times, and it's always great. Great service, great location, great accommodations and she made us cookies! This type of place enhances one's view of a nice town like Mena. I could live on that screened patio.
