Tom and Carolyn MacMahon were wonderful hosts. Our cottage was like being in England, which I have been to several times. Being a true Anglophile, the atmosphere made the stay so much better. The Nest has everything you need, whether you want to cook for yourself, or just take the short drive into Mena for a meal. The bed upstairs... More

Cabin was very cozy and quaint. My kids loved the loft beds and we all immensely loved exploring the creek. Conveniently close to town. The area was country like and peaceful. Would definitely stay again!

Excellent environment of great natural beauty. Peaceful and so cozy. It has a balcony which gives you the view and sounds of the woods. Could not be better. I recommend this cottage to anybody that is looking for a gateway from it all. Perhaps a writer who is looking for inspiration to write his/her book. Also, Carolyn, the owner of... More

My husband and I have started a tradition of staying at Willowbrook every year at the end of April for our Anniversary. We stayed at The Nest and it is beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous this time of year. It is decorated like an English cottage and very romantic for a couples weekend. We just recently stayed at Woodhaven cabin... More

It was great meeting you in person, as well as your friends who looked so cozy in their sweet camper in the Maple Glen campsite across the privacy fence in the wooded area. We were across the road and were having some area-wide issues (according to the company) with internet all weekend, after the hailstorm that affected part of the... More

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet relaxing atmosphere. Sunnybrook offers plenty of room for a couple. I am a flower person, so I really enjoyed the beautiful flowers in the yard. Th stream out back is beautiful.

We are so glad you had a quiet, relaxing time at Sunnybrook, our "tiny house." We love flowers too--you will have to try the Willowbrook Nest sometime, with its two gardens! Hope you come back soon! --Carolyn More

My husband and I stayed for four days and thoroughly enjoyed our short visit. We arrived to a beautifully scented home with everything in working order. The grounds were very nice and the view from the second level patio overlooking everything was great. Only minutes away from a scenic mountain drive and gorgeous hiking trails. We are definitely considering a... More

Me and my family really enjoyed the stay at this cabin. Nice location in hills and near to the town. Cabin is well equipped. We reached late by around 11:30 PM. Carolyn made sure that the lights of the cabin are on so that we can find it easily.

We stayed in the Woodhaven Cabin. The grass and shrubs were so overgrown there wasn't much room to walk on the path to the cabin. There was so much stuff everywhere it was crowded inside and hard to move around. The toilet seat was broken so when you sat on it, it pinched your skin. If you were very tall,... More

We have a satisfaction guarantee, so this review surprises us. This reviewer says they stayed in November, 2014, a year ago--but we have no record of this person, according to their profile, as a registered guest. It does seem odd to have a review submitted a year later. Could it be that such a person whose profile shows she travels... More
