Frequently Asked Questions:
Q. How far are you from town?
A. 2.9 miles.
Q. Do I have to travel on gravel to get to you?
A. No, we are on a quiet, paved country road.
Q. Are the cabins private?
A. Yes, each has its own area of our 10 acres. You don't have to share grounds with anyone. Willowbrook Garden Cottage and Willowbrook Nest are on different ends of the same stone country manor house, but each has their own private gardens and decks. Woodhaven is in its own clearing in the woods. Sunnybrook has a large sunny, grassy yard, with privacy fencing and large trees and stream.
Q. Do you have TV reception?
A. No. There is DVD/VCR and a selection of movies.
Q. Do you have wireless Internet?
A. All the cabins have free wireless Internet. Woodhaven has the weakest signal, as the router is further away; but you can usually pick up email up in the loft.
Q. Are breakfasts provided?
A. No, but all units have kitchens, dishes, utensils, etc. The tradeoff is that although nobody is on site cooking for you, you don't have to have anyone in your space! All have coffee-makers and coffees and teas.
Q. What if i have to cancel?
A. Reserving dates removes them from the availabilty calendar, turning other potential guests away; but life happens, and if you have to cancel or change your date, we refund all but $35 deposit, up until 2 weeks prior to arrival. After that we do a full refund if we can rebook, less $35 rebooking fee.
Q. Are there good restaurants nearby?
A. Mena has some quite good restaurants, all within 5 or 10 minutes' drive.
Q. Are there hiking trails at your cabins?
A. No, but we are on a quiet, paved road that makes a very nice walking or running place. If you prefer something more rustic, you can turn off it onto a gravel road that goes into the National Forest, immediately past our cabins.
Q. How far are you from the Wolfpen Gap ATV and hiking trails?
A. We are about 6 miles from the West trailhead on Route 375. About 10 miles from the Highway 8 trailhead.
Q. Are the Wolfpen Gap trails open year round?
A. Yes, except for a short period during late November and early December during gun hunting season. This may be subject to changes that we are unaware of; you can check with the Wolfpen Gap area website, or go to www.fs.usda.gov/ouachita.
Q. Do the cabins have BBQ grills?
A. Yes. Bring your own charcoal and fluid. We have utensils. During established Burn Bans, no outdoor grilling is allowed; check with innkeeper if you have a question whether the Burn Ban is in effect.
Q. Do the cabins come furnished with linens?
A. Yes. Beds, baths, kitchens all have linens provided.
Q. Do all the cabins have hair dryers?
Q. Do all cabins have an iron?
Q. Do you allow pets?
A. No. But the owner's son is a vet, whose nice boarding facilities with tender loving care are just 5 minutes' drive away, if you want to take your dog on outings and kiss him/her goodnight at the boarding facility and then go to your cabin. No pets are to be on the cabin premises, insite or out, at any time.
Q. Are your cabins handicap accessible?
A. Not completely. Woodhaven, Sunnybrook, and Willowbrook Garden Cottage have three steps to enter, but then have sleeping accommodations on the main level. The Nest has a stairway to the bedroom and bathroom. The bathrooms cannot accommodate regular wheelchairs.
Q. What are the weather seasons?
A. We have four seasons, but the winters are mild. We never get frozen ground, but the temperatures typically may dip into the teens the first week or so in January, then we head back into moderate temperatures getting ready for daffodils blooming in February. Snow is rare, but sometimes surprises us with a "Winter Wonderland." September and October, April and May, are generally perfect, neither too hot or cold. June, July and August can get hot and dry, making great water sport weather, and we DO have air conditioning.
