Why Kids Love it

The owners have 4 children and there is everything you might need for ages 0 to 10 years old.

For babies there is a high chair, strollers and a pack ‘n’ play. For older kids, there are bikes, a basketball hoop, a tree swing, and sports equipment of all kinds. The home home is very near to 2 city parks with excellent amenities for children, both featuring a creek and walk/run/bike paths. In Fayetteville, kids will enjoy the vintage and modern planes at Arkansas Air and Military Museum and the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks with themed gardens and a butterfly house.

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The stairs to the basement playroom can be shut off via a door for safety. Guests will have access to the entire home (main level and basement), an acre of land, and parking space at the top of the driveway.

Style Notes

Mid century modern retreat. This home is full of open living spaces giving a larger family or families travelling together room to relax. The 2 levels allow for children to play freely downstairs, while parents relax on the main floor. The house was recently renovated with new bathrooms and kitchen and furnished with original and new pieces from the 1940s to 1970s – mirrors, lamps, chairs and rugs all carefully echo the era. The acre of gardens outside includes a front yard with a dining table for up to ten, where you can enjoy a family meal in the sunshine. We love the views of the birds in the front yard from the sitting room, the low-slung arm chairs, and the 1950s Heywood Wakefield furniture in the dining room.

In the heart of the Ozarks

Arkensas’ third largest city is in the heart of the Ozarks with plenty of magical natural experiences around the corner. Chase butterflies at the Botanical Gardens, walk, jog or cycle beautiful trails or spot birds in the hills. On a rainy day, the public library is great for all ages and there are indoor play parks and the art of the Crystal Bridges Museum to explore, along with a drive-in movie theater.
