About Kevin & Shelley Kraning

We are a local family with three children, two at Lifeway Christian and our oldest at John Brown University. We have always dreamed of owning a B&B. This comfortable vintage cottage allowed us to live out some of that dream with this great home in downtown Bentonville.

We put a lot of time and energy into this little cottage and we know you will fall in love with it, just like we did. It was always meant to be shared.

We have been blessed in 2012 with the opportunity to purchase the two houses next door to the Mockingbird. Soon in 2013 we will be able to introduce the Meadowlark and Hummingbird. Look for them on VRBO!

Kevin & Shelley Kraning purchased this cottage in 2012

Exceptional cottage, wonderful location, friendly and responsive owners. WONDERFUL place.

  • 5 of 5
It's clear the attention to detail that the owners have given to these cottages. I have stayed in several VRBO listed properties, and this is by far one of the top five of all time for charm, location next to the square and the trail to the museum, cleanliness, and just overall warmth.

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5
The Mockingbird Cottage is a great place to stay for a weekend in Bentonville. It is easy to see the thought that went in to decorating the cottage, down to the last detail. It was very clean as well. The location is perfect as well. Highly recommended!

A top notch property with great ambience!

  • 5 of 5
We travel a lot, and this is the best vacation rental we've ever experienced. The cottage decor was charming and spotlessly clean with high end furnishings. Towels were large and fluffy and sheets were high thread count -- things that are missing in most vacation rentals. The kitchen was gorgeous, well equipped and stocked with light breakfast items, which meant we could lounge around in the mornings and enjoy the cottage atmosphere before heading out. Everything about this place says "slow down" and embrace a quieter lifestyle. It is apparent that the owners care about creating a memorable experience for their guests. Kevin was consistently responsive and helpful from the initial contact. Shelley is a decorating and hospitality genius whose artful touch gets full credit for creating such an appealing home.
The home is located on a dead end street with little traffic, so it is very quiet. It's a three minute walk to the Bentonville square where you'll find great restaurants and shops. We spent several hours in the striking Crystal Bridges Museum and ate a tasty lunch at their restaurant. During our visit, we explored the Beaver Lake area, the Pea Ridge National Battlefield and the picturesque town of Fayetteville. (Recommeded: For a scenic drive, take the back roads to Fayetteville -- 112 and 84 -- rather than 71 Hwy. Also, take Hwy 12 east out of Rogers to the War Eagle grist mill for a beautiful drive through the mountains, continuing on to the quaint town of Eureka Springs.)
This is an excellent get away spot, and The Mockingbird Cottage makes it extra special! We will be back.

Owner's Response: It is always such a joy for us when someone loves our cottages as much as we do. We truly believe that the difference is in the details. Those details are intentional and we are so glad you noticed them.

We appreciate you taking the time to write this review. Your kind words were a blessing to us.

Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you next time.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Twelve lifelong friends arrived in Bentonville for a weekend stay at The Mockingbird and The Meadowlark Cottages. Never have we seen such attention to detail and consideration for guests' comfort! Each cottage had its own unique character and modern, top-of-line finishes only enhanced the experience. Located just 2 blocks from the Bentonville square - site of art galleries, museums, great restaurant options and frequent community events - and with Crystal Bridges, great shopping, and much more just minutes away, the location was ideal. If you're headed to NW Arkansas, don't miss this very special treat! The owners are very accommodating, and it was a pleasure to work with them. Our group will definitely return!

It was really fun to have your group stay in two of our cottages. We are so glad you decided to make this year's gathering location at Downtown Bentonville Cottages. We are thankful that we are located close to the square and restaurants, and it sounds like the cottages worked well for your group to enjoy downtown.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and for your kind words. We look forward to seeing you next time!

Dream cottage you won't want to leave!!!

Dream cottage you won't want to leave!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our fall girls getaway to Mockingbird Cottage. We felt like we'd walked into a Country Living magazine photo shoot! Wonderful vintage and contemporary furnishings, beautiful bed and bath appointments, and delightful decor and design elements throughout. We couldn't stop oohing and aahing!
The location is perfect -- residential and quiet but just around the corner from the town square and fun shops and great restaurants as well as within walking distance to Crystal Bridges Museum and Compton Gardens plus a variety of walking and biking trails.
We wish we'd had more time to enjoy the cottage and its spacious front and side porches AND investigate the numerous antique shops, etc. in the area. One thing is for sure though, we will be back!
Thanks so much to Kevin and Shelley for creating this special retreat!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. These are very kind words. It brings us joy when guests stay with us and love our places like we do. We also love when friends decide to meet at our places and make memories.

The Mockingbird is a special place and we feel the same way you do about this little cottage. You will need to come back in the Spring or Summer and enjoy the afternoons or long summer days on the wrap around porch. It is our favorite room in the cottage!

Thanks again for staying with us.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has it all. Location is close to downtown Bentonville and Crystal Bridges. It is a quiet street.
The renovation of this cottage is amazing. The décor is cute as well as calming. Beds were comfortable. Even food essentials were provided. Aunt Bee and Andy would love this place.:) We want to go back at our earliest convenience.

Thank you for the review and the support of our business. We are glad you enjoyed all that the Mockingbird has to offer. It is a special little place and we have many guests talk of wanting to just "move in and stay". It is that kind of place!

Please come see us again. We will look forward to having you.
