This is a beautiful house and grounds in a wooded acreage. The owners - Edith and Bit - (and the helpers) couldn't have been sweeter.... As our first B & B experience, we were very impressed. The personal touches were outstanding.....loved it! Will definitely be back for another get away!!!!

We couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience and stay. Beautiful surroundings, pristine, great hostess and owner, Miss Edith Hebert. The outside grounds were gorgeous and so peaceful. I highly recommend this B&B. It's so much more, it's an experience to cherish! .

I've honestly lost count how many times I've stayed at A Bear's Den, but I'm positive that it is into the double digits. When I'm not staying there I'm often stopping by for a visit (and there are still snacks being handed out when I leave!) so it would be impossible for me to give an accurate "stay count". My...

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!

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...

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 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!!!
