Property # 1:  Our first, roomiest and best: imagine yourself at our premium cottage:

Willowbrook Cottage 
A storybook cottage, nestled in the hills just 3 miles from
Mena, Arkansas, surrounded by flower gardens--ideal for one or two couples.  Honeymooners love this one!

"This is every artist’s and author’s dream come true!  The natural beauty that surrounds you stirs up countless emotions and inspires wonderful creativity.  It’s the perfect place to escape to from the stress of daily life.  This cozy and quaint cottage offers a tranquil environment with all the comforts of home." -- C.N., Texas
                    


 


The magic begins at the gate!
You won't believe it when you drive up! 

 Jacuzzi bathtub and stone fireplace!

 There are 2 queen-size bedrooms, 2 full baths, both with tubs and showers.  Ideal for one couple for romantic hide-away, but room for 2 couples if you like!  

Your own hide-away

Hide away in this amazingly charming stone cottage, or sit in the loveseat swing by the bubbling brook and waterfall!   Forget the stress of your everyday world for a few days!  



The waterfall behind Willowbrook, early summer.

 

Stream and waterfall just outside your door!

Curl up in the knotty-pine living room with original stone fireplace fitted with realistic gas logs, and watch a movie or read a book, or enjoy cable tv. Set a table in the Victorian dining room, or eat casually in the wonderful garden room with a view of the stream and waterfall.

 

       

The garden outside the garden room

Fully equipped kitchen

The fully equipped but original old-fashioned kitchen (with full-size fridge/freezer, stove, dishwasher, all linens, dishes, pots and pans) adjoins a delightful garden room with view of gardens and stream with waterfall. Or you can cook outside on the charcoal BBQ grill. 

 

Your own private grounds, not shared.  Willowbrook is the main part of the large stone manor house, includes the stream and main flower gardens, and is separated from "The Nest," a unit that is in a formerly unused wing of the cottage with its own entrance and its own private garden, so both have complete privacy.

There is free wireless Internet and cable TV, if you have to keep in touch with the real world, but you won't want to tear yourself away from just relaxing at this wonderful cottage.

 


The Garden Room

"Dreams come true at Willowbrook Cottage"  

"Basing our entire trip off the Internet--we were a little nervous and not quite sure what to expect.  I cannot tell you how pleased we have all been.  If you could have only seen us when we first arrived!!!! We were like children at Christmas--our eyes all aglow, running from room to room, each of us saying, 'Look here!'  'Oh my gosh!'  We took lots of pictures and made wonderful memories.  You have a wonderful touch.  Thank you for all your extras!"    J and S B, Claremore, OK/

Four lovely seasons at Willowbrook!

In the spring, starting February, the flower gardens and grounds give you delightful privacy and enchantment.  Fall and winter bring their own joys with the fall leaves and crisp air, with pretty places to walk. 

 

 "Dreams DO come true! 

 This was the perfect get  away!  When I saw the pictures I was thinking this place looked too good to be true. It was absolutely perfect! I enjoyed the waterfall and the babbling brook. This was just perfect.  Gorgeous! I'm telling all of my friends to GO!!"  -- L.S., Austin, TX 

Willowbrook Rose Room

Like stepping into a Thomas Kinkade painting!

"This 100 year old cottage is so beautiful it's like escaping into a Thomas Kinkade painting. Very quiet, peaceful and serene. The guys liked it as well. If you're looking for somewhere to escape the everyday rat race. This is the place to come and renew your spirit and soul. We will definately be back." -- J.S., Kilgore, Tx

"Never have we stayed in a place so serene.

 "It's the place of my dreams.  The ivy-covered cottage, the birds singing, running brook, the flowers.  a little wonderland I thought I would never be able to experience....I will always remember this place," L.B., Shreveport, of willowbrook cottage

 

You won't find a better place to stay in or around Mena!  Willowbrook Cottage is a real one-of-a-kind hide-away, one that will make lasting memories.  Ideal for 2 people, but with two bedrooms, 4 can stay comfortably.  If a third couple wants to stay, they can rent their own one-bedroom cozy "Nest," a separate unit recently added in an un-used wing of the Willowbrook Cottage stone manor house:

   The Nest: English cottage charm

   Private deck in the treetops

  Delightful sunroom

Private Prayer Garden at The Nest

Sun-filled entry of the Nest

  Charming, ideal for two; makes a wonderful honeymoon getaway!

“Celebrating 30 yrs of marriage and 25 yrs of ministry, we were looking for a place to get away, to slow down, to be quiet.  It is always a risk when looking online—will it really be the way it is pictured?  This was exactly what we were looking for and more.  Beautiful and serene."....                --Dean & Marcia

You won't believe this darling "Nest" with its 2nd story balcony up in the treetops and its loft bedroom with Queen size bed and its own little jacuzzi bathtub tucked up under the eaves.

Recently renovated unused wing of the large stone manor house that includes Willowbrook Cottage, this cozy retreat has its own private garden, and is very private, separate from Willowbrook Cottage.  Heat and air.  Cable TV, Internet. No pets, no children, no smoking.

Property #3: If you prefer a cozy woods cabin, look at this cabin below:

Smaller than Willowbrook, and on its own private setting among trees, Woodhaven is our midsize 1000 square foot cabin--a great little hideaway:

Woodhaven Cabin  
A private and cozy western cedar cabin near the National Forest with optional camper spot  (no hookups)!

Kids and extra guests stay FREE !  
 

Five Star ***** review at FindBedandBreakfast.com!
"What a lovely respite from the world! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.   Early morning coffee on the deck and late afternoons watching the butterflies and the hummingbird moths flit from stem to stem were particularly enjoyable."  B & T, Lafayette, LA


"Beds were awesome....loved our stay!  It's hard to find cabins that allow children and we are grateful for this one.  Loved our Stay!"  Z. and C.

      Fireplace and comfy seating

 

Large Jacuzzi bathtub and fireplace! Hide away from the world in this private western cedar cabin--yet you are only 3 miles from Mena on a good paved road.  You will feel refreshed as you take your morning coffee out on the deck or on the screen porch, listen to the birds.  You might even get to see some wildlife from the National Forest.

"We celebrated our 4th anniversary here; we had a wonderful holiday here.  The cabin is all that we expected and MORE.  I would certainly recommend it to my friends and family.  Mena is the best cozy town i have seen."  J and S, Irving, TX

A pillow-top canopy queen bed awaits you after you soak in the two-person garden bathtub!  Romantic and memorable will be your getaway at Woodhaven Cabin.  

There is an upstairs with two single beds if more than two people are staying; in fact, if you want to bring the family, children will love the large collection of teddy bears that they can play with in the loft.  There  is a nice wide and easily-accessed stairway.

The kitchen has dishes and utensils, and includes a 4-burner glass cooktop and full-size fridge/freezer.  Outside in the clearing in the woods is a little BBQ grill and picnic table, in case you want to cook out.  You can enjoy walks into the National Forest just beyond the cabin, and then come back and snuggle by the fireplace and watch a movie or read a book from our selection.  Free Internet.

Carpeting, heat and air make the cabin enjoyable year-round.  Springtime brings bulbs and early flowers, and summer you will love watching the butterflies in the wildflower gardens front and back of the cabin.  Fall wraps colorful foliage around the cabin, and winter just makes it all the more cozy, sometimes with a dusting of snow.

No pets,  No-smoking cabin.

There is no cable TV at this cabin. (Many of our guests say they enjoyed spending more time connecting without interference of TV.  However, if TV is important for you, consider reserving Willowbrook or the Nest which have cable).

"I just wanted you to know what a wonderful time that my friends and I had at your cabin.  It was very special. I recently graduated college and this trip was something that my parents wanted to give me as part of my graduation present.  Mena is a beautiful little town. The teddy bears in the cabin were cute and the cabin was so clean. We appreciate the hospitality and hope to come back sometime in the future."               E.W., Shreveport, LA    January, 2011
