Willowbrook Nest, a separate apartment in the beautiful Willowbrook Cottage stone manor house, built around 1920, has been converted into a delightful private English-style vacation rental, with its own separate space and gardens. It lies within easy driving distance (2 1/2 miles) to the charming town of Mena, Arkansas, but remains tucked away in a very private setting among the "Shady Mountains," in the heart of the Ouachitas. Mena offers great antique shopping, restaurants, art galleries, live theater (in season), beautiful scenery, and outdoor activities. Additionally, almost equidistant between Hot Springs, Fort Smith, and Texarkana, this holiday cottage makes the ideal base for exploring the many amenities each provides. Enjoy a day out at the Crater of Diamonds, Rich Mountain, Little Missouri Falls, or the Talimena Scenic Drive, which provides excellent views over the mountains of Arkansas and Oklahoma.
This charming and romantic Willowbrook "Nest" has a bedroom and bathroom upstairs, with a balcony off the bedroom--the balcony is up high, in the treetops, so we call it the Nest! Jacuzzi bathtub. You will love the sunny breakfast sunroom with its own sitting area and TV, cute English-style kitchen, and den with recliners and a fullsize futon and cable TV, free WIFI, dvd/vcr with assortment of videos. Central heat/air. There is a private "Prayer Garden" patio, plus a "secret garden" with perennials and shrubbery and private seating. On the grounds of Willowbrook Cottage, you have your own private place! Two miles from the "Mayberry" town of Mena, Arkansas, which is the center of so many activities. You will return again and again to this, your own special hide-away.
