Our biker group drove up to the house and Edith was on the front porch to great our arrival. She immediately made us feel welcome with a tour of the house and fresh home made cookies. The accommodations were very comfortable (like being at home) and the house had plenty of room to sit and talk as a group or... More

Edith is a wonderful hostess! She opened her lovely home for our group of 6 riders. Each bedroom is very nicely furnished and warm. Enjoyed spending time in the family room telling stories and having some good laughs with our crew and Edith. Breakfast was absolutely delish...!

I know where I'll be staying every time I roll through Mena! A group of 6 of us made last minute changes to our weekend plans. Due to the weather we switched from riding in the Texas hill country to riding in Arkansas. I am so happy how it turned out. I called Edith on Thursday and asked is Saturday... More

My wife and I conducted a 3-day plein air painting workshop at the B&B. The hospitality provided by Edith and her crew allowed us to concentrate on our painting of the scenery on her property consisting of huge hardwood trees, beautiful lawn with lots of plants, and a small creek with walking trails and bridges. Breakfast every morning was very... More

It was a delightful experience for ABears Den to host your workshop! Every artist expressed how much they enjoyed themselves and felt encouraged by your teachings and by your examples. HOWEVER, I don't know if anyone enjoyed the workshop more than Bit and I. The group was very congenial and really clicked with great conversations about their painting experiences and... More
