I could not have asked for a better place to stay in this area. Michael and Jessica were incredible hosts and made my the stay very easy and comfortable. The cabins are gorgeous and the view can't be beat! I highly recommend staying here for your visit! It's the place I will be staying anytime I'm in the area.
From the moment we booked, Michael and Jessica were so helpful. I had quite a few questions before heading there and they responded within minutes. The cottage was even better than expected. Very beautiful and clean. Beds were very comfy. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends. It was nice to get out of the city. They also have a fire pit which was perfect for the very cold night we were there. Overall just a great experience.
Came to ride Wolf Pen Gap, found this GEM!
Came to ride the local Wolf Pen Gap trail system. I did not expect to find THIS kind of quality and attention to every detail in a lodging or hotel experience in Mena. This is a true gem ! If you come to Mena, or are looking for a girls getaway, retreat, etc, don't' miss Stonehill Cottages
This is our 2nd visit to Stonehill Cottages as they are lovely! The setting against Dallas Mountain is beautiful and the grounds are very pretty! One of the things that brings me back is the quality of the beds and bedding... They are sure to give you a great nights sleep after exploring the beauty of the area all day! The cottages are nice, very comfortable, and have everything you need from kitchen utensils to great toiletries! Highly recommended!! You'll love it!
My wife and I wanted to treat our busy daughter to a restful few days away from her children and demanding activities. We chose an area in SW Arkansas that was seven hours driving time from home. The Farmhouse Cottage was one of four on a privately owned estate of over 100 acres. The grounds were beautifully kept and there was a good view of an adjoining mountain. The cottages were easy for me to find and were about eight miles from the town of Mena. Mena had all we needed as far as food, restaurants and other things. To us, the cottage itself was special. It was PERFECTLY clean. It was very well designed for our needs. It was decorated and furnished more like a nice private home than a rental. The beds and bedding were special. We took an enjoyable day trip to explore and view the attractions of the area, but we were satisfied just to enjoy the cottage and it surroundings. The owner stopped by a while after we arrived and visited a bit. He was very friendly, taking time to answer our numerous questions and giving us much helpful and interesting information. It was nice getting to visit with him and learn some about his family and their property. This place was great for what we wanted and needed.
Thank you SO much for the kind and thorough review. That took some time to write and we dearly appreciate it :)
I highly recommend the Stonehill Cottages! We stayed in the Farmhouse; it was beautiful, relaxing, accommodating, the beds were super comfortable, and it has a gorgeous view. We are ready to start planning our next visit! Thank you Michael and Jessica for sharing your beautiful place with us!!
Thanks Mindy! Glad you guys had fun :)
We absolutely loved these cottages. They are darling and so comfortable Michael was quick to respond to any inquiries. Lovely decor, immaculately clean, quiet, peaceful area, great beds and spa like linens and towels. We loved the outside patio for coffee and meals, and the front porch rockers. Full size washer, dryer, cottage is stocked with everything you would need. Delightful owners. Five star accommodations! Thank you. Beautiful, we will be back!
Thank you Kathy! Hope you return soon! Michael & Jessica
We just returned from a weekend at the cottages . Firstly , the cottage itself was so beautiful , the bed linens and decor are all a very high standard . The kitchen is fully appointed for doing some decent cooking and EVERYTHING was clean to gleaming. Then the views , absolutely perfect in each direction , everything is so green and vibrant , we would love to return in the Autumn to see all the colours change . It's quiet and peaceful sitting out on the veranda listening to the crickets and a woodpecker . We used the grill to cook some steaks , I think that's a great touch . We called Michael the first night to check something and he answered us no problem . I would absolutely recommend a trip here . We didn't do any walking or ATV as the heat was too much for our Scottish blood but we will be sure to check out some of the activities nearby next time round .
A few friends and I from college wanted to have a weekend vacation. We drove up from the DFW area and stayed in the Farmhouse cabin at stonehill cottages. The cabin itself was great and the area nearby was lovely. We had a problem with the fireplace and Michael came by immediately to address it. We can't wait to go back!
My daughters and I very much enjoyed this cabin! They are very well-designed and very well decorated. They were comfortable, inviting and well-equipped! The King beds are awesome!! I would consider myself a bit of a "hotel snob" (unfortunately). This cabin not only would I absolutely go back to, but I would recommend to anyone!
Very clean and super cute decorated cottage! We loved our stay. Most Important beds were very comforatble. We had one of the best meals I've ever had at local resturant in Mena called Stache's. The rest of the time we cooked our meals in a complety utensill stocked kitchen, everything we needed to cook was there, which was very nice. Nothing bad to say about these cottages.
Thank you :)
We stayed for 3 days in the Farmhouse and it exceeded our expectations. It was exceptionally clean and everything in the cottage is first class. You are literally in the hills surrounded by trees on a park like property. The owners have taken great care to make sure everything is perfect thoughout the entire time you are there. The owners are readily available and quick to respond by text or call if you need ideas for places to eat out, things to do, or places you must see while there. You are only 5-6 miles from downtown Mena and the parkway. Far enough out to feel away, but close enough if you need to go into town for anything. Mena does not feel like a commercialized town. It still has that small town feel. The furnishings are wonderful from the gas fireplace to the amazing beds, wrap around porch with rocker, and the washer and dryer are top of the line full size Samsung if you need to do laundry while there. I can't say enough about how clean it was. You will think you are the first people to ever stay there. We will stay there again and look forward to going back!
What a please it was to meet you guys CK! We look forward to seeing you again! Thank you for all the very kind comments. M & J
Better than a hotel BY FAR!
Coming to Mena to visit family and was planning to get a hotel. Stumbled across this luxury cabin rental and quickly made a reservation. This is a far better alternative lodging to a hotel room or Inn of any sort. The cottages are very well appointed accommodations.
We enjoyed a wonderful week at the Farmhouse celebrating the marriage of our grandson and new granddaughter in love. Everything about this cottage was perfect! Beautiful furnishings, luxurious linens and towels, completely equipped kitchen... everything we needed was there. The only negative thing I could say was we didn't have enough time to enjoy it! The view from the rocking chair on the porch is serene, peaceful, quiet and we just needed more time to experience that! We will definitely look forward to a return trip in the future!
We had a family wedding in Mena and part of the family stayed at the Farmhouse Cottage. It was truly delightful. Michael and Jessica are amazing to work with! There are already plans in the works to come back. It will be a wonderful destination for a quiet get away. The scenery is beautiful and each cottage is appointed luxuriously. Bedding and towels are better than home! The wrap around porch is the perfect place for a cup of coffee. Thank you for making our wedding weekend even more beautiful!
Thanks JM! :)
My husband and I traveled from East Texas to Mena to celebrate our 20th anniversary...we love this area so much! The Stonehill Cottages were a new discovery and we will definitely make future visits for the peace, tranquility and luxury of these beautiful cottages. I wish we could build a larger version of the Farmhouse Cottage for our very own! The owners are very personable and did not forget a single detail in preparing for our stay. We will spread the good word!
:) we love our cottages and are so thankful our guest do too! Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review :) Michael & Jessica
My wife has been wanting to make the Talimena Drive for a couple of years now. We had a great time sight seeing even though a lot of the drive was foggy. We spent the night at The Farmhouse just south of Mena. It was very clean and well provisioned. It sets in a scenic location between some wooded hills. The porch and the deck are a great location to eat meals or just sit and enjoy the peaceful outdoors while sipping coffee. We will visit again soon.
The cottage was super nice. It was extremely clean. A little futher from town than i expected. But a nice paved road into Mena.We enjoyed it because it was quiet and in the woods.
Hey there, thanks for the kind words. I hope you guys took the shortest route to town. Our location is 2.8 miles from the Mena city limits if you travel the primary route to town. Bordering the National Forest and all that it offers but still being close to town is one of our strongest selling points. Thanks for visiting. (nice bike ;) )
We booked the Farmhouse several months ago and had been eagerly awaiting the time to travel to Mena. That kind of anticipation can set you up for disappointment but that was not the case this time. We felt at home right away when we entered our cottage and enjoyed every minute there. We prepared our meals quite easily as everything we needed was on hand. We slept like babies in the luxurious King sized beds and especially enjoyed the fireplace. I'm sure we will return and highly recommend staying at Stonehill Cottages.
Beth, you are too kind. Thank you for coming to visit. It was very nice to meet you :)
Stonehill Cottages exceeded our expectations. We loved the outside of the quaint cottage when we pulled up. However, nothing prepared us for what we saw when we opened the door. The cottage looks like it belongs in a magazine or on HGTV! Pottery Barn linens, comfortable furnishings and a claw foot tub led to a relaxing fall break. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare all our meals. We enjoyed eating on the deck and admiring the beautiful mountains covered in fall foliage. We will certainly be returning!
Spent a long weekend at The Farmhouse... And it is lovely! Pretty views, beautiful grounds, very cute and comfortable cottage! Beds were nice... I'm very particular about bedding... And was very pleased. Enjoyed coffee on the porch... Saw several deer as well! Great location ... Close enough to town and to ATV trails. We will be back and would highly recommend this lovely place!
We throughly enjoyed our stay. The beds were great. Firm yet soft, just right. The house was tastefully decorated. We used the washer and dryer daily. Also nice to not have to hand wash dishes. We saw a bear running up the road in front of the cabin! Awesome! My only want was for more water pressure in the shower. But that's only if I'm trying to find something to complain about. Would stay again for sure. Beautiful property! Paved road all the way to the door. AC worked great. Very handy on a hot night after a full day. Loved this place.
Thanks for your kind words Trent :) So glad you got a look at our resident bear :) We recently discovered that one of our lawn watering staff people was accidentally leaving a water hose wide open and running. Whoops :) Thinking that was your water pressure issue in the shower. Keep an eye out on our website, we are continuing to develop and will soon be constructing an even more luxurious cottages that will hopefully entice you and yours for a return visit. Thanks again for the kind review :) Michael & Jessica
Our family was looking for one last getaway before school starts to just "slow down" and celebrate our twins 9th birthday. We found it here! It was a beautiful cottage, clean, comfortable and quiet. The kids enjoyed riding their bikes, looking for bugs and critters and playing frisbee. We enjoyed the Little Missouri Falls and took the kids on ATV's. We felt "at home" at the Stonehill Cottages. It was very easy working with the proprietors, very accommodating and informative.
After reading the reviews, I had high expectations from all of the positive things being said about the cottages. I travel several weeks out of the year for employment, and I can easily say this has been the best experience and place to stay in the entire Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas region.
My family and I spent a weekend here for my son's 8th birthday! The cottage is fabulous. Very well appointed! Beds are high quality and extremely comfortable. The kids had a blast! Close proximity to ATV trails! We will definitely be returning in the Fall. Property owners are incredibly helpful and accommodating! Overall, a wonderful experience and weekend full of memories!
:) Thanks so much April :)
Stayed two nights at the farmhouse and wished we had been able to stay longer. Beautiful location and home furnished with all the comforts you could want. Very clean and modern . Would visit often if I lived closer. Thanks for sharing your lovely home.
The Farmhouse was a perfect stopping point for our trip.. the house was incredibly laid out- very nicely done and super clean - it worked great for each of us to have our own room - but it would work equally as well for a family or group.. loved sitting out on the back deck looking on the mountain over our morning brew.. not too far from town to go in for dinner, but easily would work for eating in.. would be a great place to stay when the seasons change!
We have rented several cabins in the Mena area over the last few years but not like this !! Paved roads (We rode motorcycles) Well equipped and clean comfortable cottage that wont disappoint , Thanks Michael and Jessica , we will be back !
Hope to see you guys back soon :) Michael & Jessica
We stayed a week in a very clean and comfortable cottage that had all the comforts of home that we could ever get in a VRBO rental! The owners are very helpful and answered all of our questions about the area during our stay. Little Missouri Falls is a must to see and golf in Glenwood was a treat. A wonderful relaxing experience.
Thank you Ray and Dewona! Hope to see you guys again :)
what a rare gem....luxury n the country...a beautifully built n decorated farmhouse...awesome owners...very accommodating ....nice ride to wolf pen gap...a treasure we will visit many times...we VRBO often & this was one of the most posh we've rented including the ski-in ski-out Colorado properties !!!
Candace, Thank you SO much for the kind words. Very much enjoyed meeting you and yours. Michael & Jessica :)
The cottage was beautiful and everything was new. We had a great stay for a week! We have stayed at a lot of vrbo rentals in a lot of states. The beds were great! Only suggestion is to have some rugs inside the doors to set your shoes or wipe your feet after riding! Very peaceful!
Thank you guys :)
This cottage goes above and beyond!! Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, A huge washer/dryer, wonderfully comfortable beds, and great views! We loved our stay, despite the unfortunate weather we had. Our only suggestion is to maybe make a spot to easily park trailers and ATV's.
Thank you guys! New parking lot for large trailers coming soon :)
In looking for the perfect get away from a busy life for Valentine's Day weekend, we looked at several of our favorite destinations. One is Hot Springs, but none of the places looked 'right' and we extended the area and the Stonehill Cottages came up and we knew we had found the perfect place!! The pictures were beautiful and inviting, but they did not do justice to the beauty of the cottages, nor the surroundings. It is a stunning setting. We have stayed in many VRBO of properties in many states and tend to judge them on how well maintained they are, attention to detail, linens and towels, and how equipped the kitchen is--my husband loves to cook on vacations! Five stars on all!!! Michael and Jessica are the perfect hosts, making you feel welcome and at ease. They have done such an amazing job taking on this project with building these new cabins and renting them. Their beautiful home is close enough you know they are there if you need them, but far and secluded from the cabins. The weather was perfect (in mid February!!) We enjoyed eating a few meals on the deck and sitting in the rockers with our coffee or a glass of wine. One night we were even serenaded by spring peepers, so loud we recorded them. Spring peepers in February!!!! Perfect weekend!!!! We can't wait to return to explore more of the adventure roads to the tops of the mountains and enjoy more evenings on the porch in the rockers. We could not have been more pleased. If there had been 10 star rating, we would have given them a 10!
Thank you so much Barbara :). We look forward to your next visit ! Michael &Jessica Jessica :)
My family and I were looking for a place to stay during the holidays while we scouted the Ouchitas for a place of our own. We stumbled onto the Stonehill Cottages after not finding any recommended hotels in the area. We stayed in the Farmhouse Cottage and while the pictures online are beautiful, they do not do the this cottage justice. Very well appointed with all the modern amenities...but maintains that perfect cottage feel. Beds were very comfortable. The owners were incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to help us better understand the Ouachita region and to make our stay enjoyable. The location of the cottages feels secluded, yet it's less than 5 miles from town. Far exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend these guys.
The house and surroundings were absolutely beautiful! Just as shown in the pictures. Michael was very accomadating and even went out of his way to welcome and assist us. I have been going to Mena for the past nine years and this is the best place I have ever stayed in. We were able to access Wolf Pen Gap with just a short drive and were just three or four miles out of town. Could not ask for better. I highly recommend Stonehill Cottages for a quiet comfortable place to vacation.
Thanks Fralan :) It was a pleasure meeting you and yours. Thanks for coming to stay with us :)
This Property is brand new! My husband and I spent a lot of time searching for a place to getway that we would both enjoy. The farmhouse fit it perfectly! The owners are wonderful to work with and do everything possible to make your stay the best. They have done a wonderful job at decorating these cottages! They are beautiful, relaxing and have up to date technology. The Beds are wonderful! The kitchen is stocked perfectly. The property is very quiet and the views are georgous! It is a short drive from Wolf Pen Gap which is beautiful. We highly recommend Stonehill Cottages. We will be coming back on our next getaway. Thank you Michael and Jessica for making our stay better than we could have expected! You won't be disappointed in renting this property!
Thanks for your comments Brooke! Hope to see you guys again :)
This is a cute new little bungalow. The scenery is just amazing in the heart of the Ouachita mountains. Michael and Jessica were very attentive hosts that went above and beyond the call of duty. My wife loved the accommodations and especially the kitchen area above the stove :) The decorations are country chic. My wife fell in love with all the little details. We will return again and will recommend this place to all our friends. Hook Em!!
Stew, Thanks again! We enjoyed hosting you guys. Hopefully next time is sooner than later ;)
My husband and I stayed at Stonehill Cottages for a three-day getaway in October 2014. What an amazing place this is!! When we first pulled up to the cottage we were blown away by the beautiful mountain views. Once inside, we found the cottage to be brand new and immaculate. It is obvious that the owners paid attention to the small details...down to the well stocked kitchen and the high quality linens and towels. We spoke to the owner briefly before arriving, and found him to be very responsive and courteous. While we were there, we loved sitting on the large deck enjoying the mountain views. Everything about our stay exceeded our expectations. We absolutely loved it, and will definitely be back!!
Loved meeting you guy! Safe travels, hope to see you again!
Thank you Michael and Jessica for an awesome stay. My family of four couldn't be happier with our stay in the farmhouse cottage. Even though the kitchen was fully stocked, we decided to try some local restaurants because they were only a short drive away. The cottage has fabulous mountain views and allows you to really relax, while still providing all the comforts if home -including wifi. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! Next time we come we will hopefully be staying a full week! Thanks again!
We were looking for a getaway with a view that was within 3 hour drive. The Farmhouse Cottage was exactly what we were looking for! I would call the interior style~farmhouse chic and we absolutely loved it. The bedding was dreamy with super comfy beds. There were 2 porches which we loved sitting out on taking in the serene hillside views. The owners had everything we needed in the cottage including WiFi. If we return, we will be booking at Stonehill Cottages.
Thank you Stephanie:) We enjoyed having you and Cynthia. We hope to see you again :)
