The accommodations are second to none. Was the most comfortable room I had ever stayed in. Edith and company were so personable with a genuine interest in getting to know each guest and cater to their needs. Each breakfast was wonderful and the freshly baked cookies were the best. What else could anyone hope for? Our next visit to Mena...

ABears Den enjoyed helping to celebrate your 25th anniversary! We loved that you enjoyed sitting on the rockers and swing on the screened back porch, with your hubby enjoying fresh cookies. It was good that you shared your allergies before hand, and we had time to make things work well for your diet! It is always good to hear that...
