Why Sheila and John Gordon chose Arkansas

We recently had the opportunity to purchase the Edge House from Lynn and Kathy Edgerton and we wanted to continue to share the remarkable experiences of Petit Jean Mountain from the beautiful Edge House. With the open design of the home, the view of the Arkansas River and Valley washes in surrounding your time spent inside. You can take in this unforgettable view and all its changes from day into night and season to season, from the climate controlled comfort of the sun room, while enjoying a cup of hot coffee! Then venture outside for the many viewing and hiking opportunites that await you there.

Being an Arkansas resident we love to spend time hiking the trails and exploring Petit Jean Mountain State Park, dining at Mather Lodge and I love to photograph the stunning views all around the park.

The hike to Cedar Falls is one of my favorites. At the end of the trail you can sit close enough to be cooled by the mist of the falls before starting your hike out or you can make your way under the falls and get a far different perspective. Seasonal changes offers a varied viewing opportunity on the Cedar Falls trail, colors change, plant and flowers are different, water levels change. Every season has its own beauty.

Loving the outdoors like we do, it is easy to get away from everything and enjoy the beauty that abounds in and around the Edge House.

The house is beautiful and comfortable on the inside. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, cooking essentials and all necessary serving items, so that you may enjoy meals in if you decide. There is a charcoal grill for cooking out and enjoying nature. A fire pit is also available to enjoy on cool nights sitting by fireside. Wifi is available, Direct TV, reading material, and some games if you like cards or board games.

We will work hard to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and help you to enjoy the legandary beauty surrounding the Edge House, high atop Petit Jean Mountain.

What makes this house unique

The original builders thought of everything in the design of this home - like being able to see the view through the entire house, from the entrance to the sunroom. With windows on all sides of the sunroom, you can truly relax and renew 365 days a year in this gorgeous space. It is meant to be comfortable and private whether for your family, a girls getaway, a sweetheart weekend or honeymoon, this is the home for you. The million dollar view can be seen from most any room in the house - even while you enjoy your Jacuzzi bath for two. The wood stove also makes it nice and warm inside while you watch the snow falling. We love being able to climb out on our large boulders in the back and have some quiet moments in nature.

Amazing property with beautiful river valley views

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 stayed at the Edge House over Labor Day weekend 2017. The property was everything it was billed to be, and we definitely plan to return.

The house is a well-maintained 3 BR/2BA with amazing views of the river valley below Petit Jean mountain. Inside the house was clean and had everything we needed (towels, linens, kitchen supplies, etc.) for a weekend stay. The layout of the house works well with the kitchen, main living area, and sunroom all centrally located. The dense woods on both sides of the property provides privacy from neighbors, and there are several really good spots to sit and take in the views.

The house is away from the main "traffic" (if you can even call it that) on top of the mountain, but is still within a few minutes drive to Petit Jean State Park and the main hiking trails. There also is a superb farmer's market less than a mile down the road that has locally made cheeses, meats, vegetables, etc.

All in all, Edge House is the perfect weekend mountain retreat. The new owners are terrific, as well. We literally booked the day they closed on the purchase of the property, and they went out of their way to make sure the property was ready and that we had everything we needed. Looking forward to our next stay at Petit Jean.

Owner's Response: Thank you William B! We were happy to be able to get the Edge House ready for your family on Labor Day. We would love to host your family anytime you come to the mountain to rest, relax and enjoy the trails. I could hardly tell anyone had been in the house, it looked great! Thank you all for that!

We truly enjoyed our vacation stay at this house. It's located in the middle of the woods. The owner of the house Lynn was very nice and helpful. The house had everything we needed to cook, watch TV or many DVD options and kids game options. We would like to come back here again for our next AR vacation.
