Overview

About the property

National Forest 2br/2ba With Abundant Wildlife and Huge Deck Overlooking River

Rural private pet friendly setting in the picturesque Ouachita National Forest. Large picture windows covering two sides of this six sided house overlooking the Irons Fork River. This completely remodeled beautiful home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a brand new queen sleeper sofa, washer/dryer, central heat and air, wood burning fireplace along with full kitchen including range, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher. Fully furnished with all utensils, pots, pans, and coffee pot along with linens and towels. Adding that special touch, including soaps, shampoos, coffee etc. make this a true home away from home. Living room has 50" plasma TV, DVD/VHS player, and several movies to choose from. Relax and de-stress on the extra large deck overlooking the water, or take a stroll among the many flower garden paths, or visit the fruit orchard only yards away. You most likely will see many wild animals including deer, bunnies, squirrels, armadillos and occasionally a bear with her cubs will stroll along the back of the field. This is a dry county, so if you want to indulge, you will need to bring it with you. Closest liquor store is 60 miles. The only internet we receive here is from our phones. Please print directions and map. GPS devices will most likely get you lost out here in the "sticks" lol. Rent for 5 nights (including weekend rates) and get 2 weeknights FREE. Also, Team National members receive additional discounts - call for details. Pet fee is $10 per pet per night with a $50 maximum fee charged.

We loved how it was right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here! Roland and Becky were very welcoming and the house was stocked with whatever you need, including chocolate chip cookies waiting for us when we got there! We loved how secluded it was, how the windows really opened up the house to the outside, and how we were right on the water! We enjoyed sitting on the big deck listening to the water from the river and the rest of nature! We grilled out on the BBQ grill almost every night! We caught a 1.5lb bass, 3 bluegills, a baby channel catfish, and a baby bullhead catfish. During our stay we visited Queen Wilhelmina State Park (the view is amazing!), ate at Southern Belle restaurant in Oklahoma, went fishing at Lake Ouachita, dug for diamonds at Crater of Diamonds State Park, enjoyed some snow cones in the town of Mena, and just enjoyed hanging around the property. It was so quite and relaxing! We were sad to leave!

Altogether Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! If you like total comfort, peaceful surroundings and quick access to attractions, you really need to consider the Glass House Retreat. Just the drive to this lovely home was enough to get our attention. The countryside is a pastoral delight!

The owners greeted us upon our arrival; meeting them was a real pleasure! The house was ready for us with lots of special touches, including a plate of homemade cookies. Our little dog had a bed, towels, treats, bowls and blanket awaiting him. It was a joy to come in, kick back and enjoy conversation, quality sleep and picturesque views from every window without the hassle of doorbells or ringing telephones.

This beautiful home is spotlessly clean with comfortable furnishings. The beds are great! The living room chairs are just right for relaxing and putting up your feel. The television has a nice, big screen, and if you’re interested, there’s a closet full of dvd and vhs format movies.

This spot is truly altogether lovely. In fact, we made our next reservation for June, 2018 this trip!

Remote and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great time staying at the Glass House! It's the perfect getaway if you're wanting to get some space from the city and enjoy staying so close to nature. The river deck was a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy the scenery. We went in early November, and it's the perfect place to experience some authentic autumn colors right outside. The Otts were so welcoming and hospitable. It was a pleasure meeting them and a pleasure staying at the Glass House. Prepare for some dirt road travel and no Wifi with limited service, but other than that you'll have a wonderful stay.

peaceful and perfect...

  • 5 of 5

What a special spot this is! Had a spectacular time. My pooches didn't want to leave. The views are incredible, the scenery is amazing. Restful and relaxing - just what the 'doctor ordered'. Less than 20 minutes from the Queen Wilhelmina State Park and the 50 mile drive through the park was terrific, too. Thinking that having seen the leaves turn we may need to come back to see the gardens in the spring...

Owner's Response: Enjoyed having you and the "pooches" stay with us. The fall colors are amazing, but the spring flowers are even better. Hope to see you again soon.
