The owners, Ray & Karen Miller, have spent their entire lives in the Mena & Big Fork area. The cottage is located on their 200 plus acre cattle ranch in a very rural area of the beautiful Ouachita Mountains. They have been married for 45 years and have three children and eight grandchildren. They are both retired teachers and are now enjoying the quiet life on the ranch (no alarm clocks necessary). Ray loves to hunt and fish. He doesn't have to leave the ranch to do either. He taught 5th grade at Mena Public Schools and drove a school bus for 28 years. He enjoys the chance to do outside activities with the grandkids such as throwing rocks in the creek, fishing, roasting hot dogs, and riding on the ATV. Karen is a retired 2nd grade teacher. She loves spending time with her grandchildren. Karen is a great cook and enjoys teaching the grands how to bake cookies. She frequently takes them on ATV rides to check the cattle, and they all get excited when they discover a newly born calf. Ray & Karen look forward to welcoming you to their little piece of heaven.
