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

Absolutely Lovely Cottage in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Mockingbird. Clean, bright, happy and comfortable. The owners put such wonderful personal touches into the cottage to make you feel at home, and the location is close enoght to the Bentonville square to walk to enjoy the lovely restaurants, first Walmart 5 and Dime and Farmers' Market.

Great as always!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mockingbird in the middle of October. This was our second stay with DBC. We stayed at Meadowlark last spring which is right next door. We've stayed at many different rentals on VRBO over the years and no one does a better job than Downtown Bentonville Cottages. Their properties are clean, beautifully decorated, and they go the extra mile with nice touches like stocked items in the fridge and a nice coffee selection. I also appreciate the fact they don't charge a cleaning fee which to me is just a way that some property owners hit you with an extra expense.

Mockingbird is a beautiful property. Even though the house is a bit smaller than Meadowlark the porch is much bigger. We spent the evenings out on the porch in the swing. Downtown is a few short blocks away so between that and Crystal Bridges we had no problem filling our days.

If you stay here I highly recommend a trip over to Crepes Paulette, my favorite place to eat in Bentonville. You won't be disappointed there or at any of the Downtown Bentonville Cottages.

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.

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!
