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 stove, 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 tons of movies to choose from. Relax and unwind 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 friendly 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 (max 2 pets) 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!

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay at “The Glass House Retreat”! The owners, Roland and Becky, helped make this anniversary trip extra special. Upon arrival, there were fresh flowers, anniversary greetings, delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies and banana bread! The house was very clean and comfortable and well stocked with just about anything you might need. We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area during the day, and coming back to the peaceful setting of the house! The wrap around deck overlooking the water was so tranquil, we had no choice but to relax! We loved our daily visits, from the property mascots, Cooper and Skyla, they are both wonderful dogs! We had a wonderful, memorable trip! Thank you!! Mike and Dawn
