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!

The Glass House Retreat ROCKS!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is as beautiful as the pictures, and more so. So much room, all the comforts of home, beautiful furnishings and decor, and thoughtful touches everywhere! And then you wake up and it's morning, and you can see out the gorgeous windows!! We literally couldn't stop looking out the windows, or taking every opportunity for walks on the porch, or down the walking paths! We loved looking over the porch rail at the fish in the river, and the trees were just changing color, so it was gorgeous as well as peaceful! We kept saying, "This is so pretty!" Truly a retreat! Thanks so much, Roland and Becky!

Sorry, we can't make up our minds whether it is the Otts or their property

we liked the best. Becky's cookies probably work in favor of the Otts.

We were only disappointed that we didn't see a bear. Maybe next time.

Relaxing and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Roland and Becky have a beautiful home away from home. Everything felt so cozy and you didn't really need much of anything... they thought of so much. Fished from their backyard, enjoyed a 2 mile walk every morning and enjoyed God's beauty all around. Looking forward to our next visit.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, as well as our two fur babies, visited and stayed here Labor Day weekend. We had such an amazing weekend! Roland and Becky were so sweet and welcomed us with opened arms upon arrival. The house was cleaned and fully equipped with whatever you would need for the weekend. They even had amazing homemade cookies and doggy treats, towels and treats. Such a beautiful drive and location. We definitely would love to come back!
