Nestled in a quiet neighborhood located 2.5 miles from Lake Dardanelle State Park, our lovely home was designed and built in the style of A. Hays Town. Relax on the patio, take a dip in the pool, or soak up the sunshine in the comforts of the air conditioning in the sun room. French colonial style architecture with the use of recycled building materials from the mid 1800's makes for a unique stay.
The guest area is closed off from the rest of the home for privacy. The house has multiple staircases to enter the guest entrance and the sleeping areas are on the second floor of the west wing.

There is no access to the family kitchen unless requested in advance and approved, however the outdoor kitchen is available for use for grilling. Use of the laundry room is available for longer stay guests. The pool, patio, yard, and and play area are shared areas. The zen garden is a private and sacred place for our family but will I be happy to show you the gardens and herbs growing there during your stay in my free time.
Interação com os hóspedes
We are a family of 4 with young children and a small dog named Obi Wan Kenobi who is very friendly but loves to escape! The kids have the same traits :) Our interactions will most likely be in the shared outdoor spaces but do not hesitate to ask for anything. We will be happy to help you with the local area attractions and reservations if you need help.
I am a certified yoga instructor, if you ask in advance, I will be happy to practice with you during the daytime hours. We have a large canoe and two kayaks available but you will be responsible for transport to the Lake or River you will be floating on. My husband is an avid fisherman and can tell you about the local fishing spots and might take you out on the boat if you request in advance. He is also a pilot if you want an aerial view of the city. We also have some private hiking land at the foot of Ozark National Forest if you like hiking and outdoors; this area is stunning but is a rough hike in.
- We do not wear shoes in the house simply in an effort to protect some of the re-claimed materials used by architects. We will provide new flip flops or we recommended socks with grippers on the bottom. If you must wear shoes, we ask that you be mindful of the home and help us maintain its history.
- We have tiny humans that have school and the such. We ask that you exercise quiet hours between the hours of 10:00p
m and 6:00am for the common areas and the balcony patio.
- Make yourself at home, just leave it the way you found it :)
- We are a peaceful and tolerant family and all are welcome. We respectfully ask that you treat everyone kindly and not feed the dog table scraps no matter how much he begs.
