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 complement 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.
Deepwood House is so close yet a world away.

Why Neil Norberg chose Fayetteville
Designed and built for his own family by architect and professor Herb Fowler in 1960, Deepwood has a rich history and was inspired by the 'built-in-nature' designs of mid-century architects such as Fay Jones and Frank Loyd Wright.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Wonderful stay at Deepwood House
Our family stayed at Deepwood House to celebrate our daughter's graduation. Neil couldn't have been more helpful in promptly answering questions about the property ahead of time and being on-site to help with any need we had. The house, and especially the sweeping back porch, was a wonderful spot to host a graduation party with family, friend and faculty guests. The house was spotlessly clean and well-equipped. Our great thanks to Neil for facilitating a wonderful weekend celebration.
Wonderful house and setting
Our extended family was here for our daughter's graduation from the University of Arkansas. While the house did not accommodate all of our large group for sleeping (some stayed in hotels) - we had ample room at the house to gather for meals and hang out. It is a beautiful setting in the woods yet very close to town. The best of both worlds. All of our group loved the home and it's history. In addition, Neil was so hospitable and helpful! We will definitely be back.
Amazing house and location close to the city. Everything about the house was great.
But, they should really let you know that the caretaker stays in the adjacent detached house about 75' away though. If someone (us) was looking for complete solitude and privacy, that's kind of a bummer to discover when you show up.
Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to be for Thanksgiving!
Relaxing wooded house!
This was our 2nd visit to the Deepwood house. It is a wonderful treasure just outside Fayetteville. Neil makes sure everything is perfect for the visit. Plenty of firewood ready! We love this wonderful house!
LOVE at first Sight!
Our 25th Wedding Anniversary Celebration was a dream come true because of all of the grandeur and serenity at this beautiful place! Neil made us feel welcome with our first correspondence and right on through the day we departed. We loved that restaurants and sightseeing was close by yet we could escape back to the quiet at the end of the day!
This is a trip and stay we will mark down as one of our best!
Nice walking paths in the woods nearby.
