Very clean rooms, well kept house and beautiful grounds. A most relaxing experience. Edith was a friendly and gracious hostess. Can't wait to go back! The enclosed back porch was a great place to stretch out in the hammock and read (or nap). Loved listening to the sounds of nature.

The owner, Edith, answered and told us she had one room and invited us to stop by & look. I am so glad we did! This B&B was minutes from everything downtown Mena had to offer and was...

Not knowing anything about Mena, we checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor for hotel and B&B recommendations. We read about " A Bears Den" and all the high reviews....

This location was peaceful, the homemade food, beautifully set table, hot tub, and attention to detail sets this place apart. I highly recommend this spectacular place. I...

We have never stayed at a B&B before and were tentative about using a B&B. With most accommodations booked along the Talimena Drive, we took a chance on ABears Den B&B. Best experience ever!

We are so glad you chose to stay at ABears Den and were able to enjoy the BB room and the grounds. The grounds are really peaceful and very pretty anytime of the year.
