My husband & I were vacationing in Mena to spend time with family there. This was our first time in a B & B, and we could not have asked for a better experience! Ms. Edith and Bit were wonderful hostesses, with fresh cookies baked for our arrival, and goodie bags packed for our day trips. We never felt the...

It is very rewarding to have someone stay at ABears Den for their first Bed & Breakfast experience! It is also our goal to make your stay memorable. Lol. The weather WAS really nice and coffee on the patio was very relaxing and peaceful. We look forward to your return visit to Mena and enjoying more of the fun activities...

We stayed for one night while on a motorcycle tour of the area - I wish we had needed to stay longer! This is undoubtedly one of the very best B&B experiences my husband and I have ever had, and we've had a lot of them. Edith welcomed us into her home like family, and truly that is how we...

Thank you for such a great review! ABears Den enjoyed your trip to Mena very much. It was fascinating to hear about your professions and travels to Europe.

Four days at A Bears' Den were relaxing, comfortable, and provided a good base to explore this part of USA. And there was a tornado alert during our stay; it passed within two miles of Mena but Edith, our hostess, took it all in her stride and we rode it through by hiding in the bathroom . To be fair,...

We do thank you for taking time to write ABearsDen a review during your travels to US! We certainly enjoyed your visit and am glad you felt comfortable even in the storm. We have always felt like we were safe but can't say we have been in a direct hit! We are talking to our contractor (our son) about having...

I stayed here for two nights and it was awesome! I was looking for a home away from home feel and this was truly the place. This trip was just what the doctor ordered! The front and back yard view is spectacular. I felt like I was part of the family. This was the best get-a-way that I've had in...

We had such a great time at Abear's Den B &B. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the front porch in the comfortable adirondack rocking chairs, drinking coffee overlooking the beautiful park like grounds-so peaceful! Massages in our room arranged by our wonderful hostess Edith were deliciously relaxing. The breakfasts were sublime. Could not recommend more highly!!!

We stayed here for two nights during Spring Break of March '13. We were closing up the last leg of our road trip and decided to do some hiking in the Ouachita National Forest.

Iron Mountain near Mena, Arkansas is a beautiful retreat. A Bear's Den B&B is icing on the cake! Ms. Edith treats you like family and the amenities are more than sufficient to allow anyone to feel at home. Hotels and most other overnight stays are good in the area, but A Bear's Den is the BEST! There is not another...

We were so pleased that you were able to attend the CMA Pastoral Conference again this year. AND that you chose to stay at ABears Den again! I enjoyed going to hear some of the conference speakers, and want to make that a plan for next year to do again. The Azaleas are beginning to bloom and the Dogwood trees...

I stayed here for a business trip to Mena. It was beautiful and I couldn't have been treated better. Made me feel like it was a vacation instead of a business trip. Felt right at home. Thanks to Edith and Judy for all their hospitality.

It is always a pleasure to have Judy on board, she is a very talented and interesting addition for ABears Den to have on staff. She likes to cook and she likes people! Mena (and ABearsDen) is fortunate to have her! We look forward to having you on your next business trip to our area. 😀

We stayed with Edith in early November as a jumping off place for making Talimena Drive to see the fall foliage. Everything about our stay was perfect!

ABears Den Was excited to see the review you posted! Hope we set the stage for your holidays to be great! We had customers during the holidays, but mostly family getting together. Of course having snow on Christmas Day was a real treat for all. It has been a long time maybe since 2000, since we had snow on Christmas!...
