Overview

Fayetteville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Located on the crest of Mount Kessler, surrounded by forty acres of wooded hills and pastures, and engulfed in a tranquil forest of Maples and Oaks, Deepwood House provides an ideal retreat for small groups, families or individuals who desire a unique, private, and relaxing place to stay while visiting Fayetteville.

The award-winning architectural masterpiece, constructed in the Ozark tradition of cedar wood, stone, and glass, was designed by the late former University of Arkansas Architecture professor Herb Fowler, who aptly christened it 'Deepwood'.

The home is fully furnished and equipped, with a master bedroom and bath and two guest bedrooms sharing a second bath. All the floors are natural flagstone, which beautifully compliment a massive stone fireplace dominating a cozy living room. It has a spacious deck nestled in a mature maple forest with views down into Fayetteville and a huge stone patio for barbecuing and entertaining.

Deepwood House can accommodate up to six people, but day-use accommodations for more can be arranged. It is a great venue for weddings. Forest and meadow paths are available for those who like to walk, bike, or run.

The meadow in front of the barn is the venue for the annual Finger Mountain Breakdown, a home-grown October music festival featuring local bluegrass, old-time, roots and singer-songwriter music.

Deepwood House is so close yet a world away.

Beautiful AND convenient

  • 5 of 5

my wife, two small children and parents stayed at Deepwoods House for five days and we could not have been happier.

Although the house is on a mountain and very wooded it is truly 10 minutes from Dickson Street. there was plenty of space for all of us and the kids loved playing on the trails around the property. the house was not only very cool in design but had every amenity.

the caretaker was there to provide anything we needed (he even upgraded the cable package so we could watch the NCAA tournament) without at all being evasive.

if you are looking for a unique experience for your family while still being close to campus i don't think you will find anything as clean and neat as Deepwooods. we can't wait to go back!

family getaway

  • 5 of 5

the property is unique & interesting & the setting ideal. we had everything we could want & everything was so comfortable - beds, towels, etc.

but the BEST thing was how helpful & thoughtful Neil has been this entire time!!!!! i have never encountered someone who went the extra mile more than he has! all 5 of us would like to thank him for all his help!

we had seen 2 reviews that indicated some problems, so i asked you & Thomas about them. you both assured me that you were working hard to counter any past issues. We couldn't be more pleased & anticipate returning as soon as we can!

I would highly recommend your lovely place for friends, families, anyone wanting to get away from it all but still be close enough for all that fayetteville has to offer.

Perfect Venue for our Perfect Fall Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We decided to hold our wedding here. Lots of maple trees and the feeling of complete seclusion while remaining very close to Fayetteville. The caretaker was helpful in getting everything set up, and patient with our several visits to measure and map out where everything would be. The house is spectacular and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. The best view is off the back deck, that's what sold us. Overall, I highly recommend Deep Wood House.

Extremely Disappointed in Condition of House--Poorly Maintained & Filthy

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at 4:00 p.m. to find the house had not been cleaned and the caretaker said, "He had not had time to get over there that day." In addition to the house needing numerous repairs, it was completely filthy.

There were dirty dishes in dishwasher.

Trash cans not emptied.

Linens not changed. There were sheets in dryer and we changed them ourselves.

Bath mats damp and dirty.

Bathrooms filthy.

Deck not blown off & table on deck was dirty. We could not have eaten outside anyway due to caretaker's cats being on tables.

Rug in living room had not been vacuumed.

Placemats on table dirty.

Floors dirty.

Cushions on built-in couches were dirty, worn out & very uncomfortable-need to be replaced.

Sheets & towels all in need of some bleach & fabric softener--actually new ones are really needed.

Ice maker in refrigerator did not work.

Windows were not clean & several double pane windows had broken seals & were cloudy & need to be replaced.

Some kind of animal in attic scratching & moving around.

Cobwebs in living room.

An electrical problem with several outlets: None of the electronics, including the TV worked

& lamp on bed in Master BR did not work.

There are many repairs needed as well as a thorough, professional cleaning.

The entire house is extremely dark and the lighting is poor. Certainly nothing like the photos on the website which show everything light & bright.

It is unfortunate no one taking care of the house properly since it is such a lovely location and could be a really special place.

We had to pay a cleaning fee but had to clean the house ourselves & change the linens. We feel like at the very least we should have the cleaning fee refunded.

It was a very disappointing visit and for all these reasons we would never recommend Deepwood House to anyone.

Owner's Response: Deepwood House is under new management by a family member. We have replaced all the bed linens, pillows and towels. The living room cushions are new and the house is clean and beautiful. I just showed it to couple who said that the website didn't do it justice. That is the comment we are working for every time!

A True Get Away

  • 4 of 5

A GREAT experience and would return!!! The pictures are up-to-date of property/furnishings. Off the beaten path but not so far that running to the store is not a chore. Really enjoyed the variety of books from years past (books literally from the 1960's). Very unique and well equipped (kitchen). Plenty of board games to enjoy. My only issue was the quality of bedding/mattresses (full size and firm). Had to go buy a cheap foam pad (which we left behind). Ticks are a big issue; walked on local paths and ended up with 4 ticks. Not a big deal just need to make sure that everyone goes into the woods or kids that play in the yard provided get checked immediately following for ticks. Truly a piece of local history and one of my great memories.

Owner's Response: In response to your comment about the bedding, we have purchased double pads for both beds to provide better comfort. We are sorry that you had to go out of your way to get foam pads, but hopefully this won't be an issue in the future. We appreciate the feedback!

Living in a treehouse

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Deepwoods House. It was in town but you have the feeling of being out in the country - just what we like. The deck felt like you are in a treehouse. The house is really unusual and all the windows helped us to further appreciate the Ozark woods. The caretakers were friendly and responsive and I would definitely recommend this rental. I already have actually.
