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.

Why Anne Butt chose Arkansas

Built by the architect Herb Fowler in 1944, the Deepwood house 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.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Deepwoods house was everything we hoped for. We had our small wedding outside at the house and stayed the weekend with our closest family. The setting was secluded and beautiful. It was the perfect place to spend quality time with our family and friends. Neil was always available and helpful whenever we needed him. Thank you, and we will be back again!

Like living in a tree house!

  • 5 of 5

This is an architectural gem! Cannot even explain all the details that went into the design of this house. It is spectacular! Cannot even imagine how this was built back in the 40's. The drive up to the house is like leaving the real world for a fantasy world far removed but yet it is minutes from the highway and the University of Arkansas. We thoroughly enjoyed our little retreat! The linens were new, rugs new, towels new. This family takes great pride in the maintenance of this masterpiece. The caretaker lives on site so your every need is met as soon as is humanly possible. We plan on many return trips. What a treat to stay in such a gem!!

Everything we expected PLUS fantastic service.

  • 5 of 5

What a great place. Onsite (but unobtrusive) caretakers go above and beyond to make everything perfect.

This property is everything the photos and description lead you to believe. Quiet, woodsy, yet still close to town and services.

Great weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

It was exciting to stay in an architectural masterpiece from the Fay Jones era. The house was a well-maintained, peaceful retreat in the woods. I joined two friends from college and spent a great deal of time on the deck overlooking the woods. When it was time to visit campus, it was an easy 10 minutes to Dickson Street. Neil was an excellent and attentive host. We'll definitely return.

A unique tranquil find .

  • 5 of 5

Great service , we had everything we needed .Neil went above and beyond looking after us .

We asked for the grill to be set up and it was done immediately with all the utensils set up for us .

We asked if there were playing cards in the house and the next thing he had gone to the shop and bought them .

Great house where you feel you are in the middle of no where but 10 minutes from Fayetville.

Great place to decompress .

Great place to visit!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Deepwood House in Fayetteville last weekend. The weather was perfect, in fact the crocus were starting to come up on the footpaths near the house. Neil was a great host and very friendly. We look forward to visiting again in the summer when everything has turned green.
