Elkins House Rental Photos and Description

1500 sqft. 2 bedrom, 2 bath home Hot tub & pool on 2.25 acres

Thank you for visiting my 'home away' offering. My little farmhouse is near Elkins but only 20 minutes from razorback Stadium and downtown Fayetteville. You can have the best of two worlds, enjoy the fresh air and country atmosphere but you can enjoy city life as well. I can't put all the things you want to know here but I will try to outline a number of things I feel you do want to know when planning your travels. For example, Ride this train excursion thru the Ozark and Boston Mountains on the Arkansas/Missouri Railroad.\ or drive over to the flying Q farm (about 10 minutes) and go for a great trail ride. Call Susan or 479-283-6788. Add War Eagle Fair and Mill and Caverns to your list of things to do. If your coming to U of A events it is about 20 minutes away. A must see is Chrystal Bridges Museum of American Art (about 45 minutes away). It is a visit you will not forget.

We have BABY SITTING service available (by appointment only)The phone number and information is contained in your visitors packet that you will find upon arrival.

This farmhouse has kept much of its early 1800's charm but has been updated to suit the needs of today's travelers. It has two bedrooms the Master bedroom has a queen size bed and its own bath. The laundry room is accessed from the bath. The second bedroom has an antique full size iron bed (been in the family for four generations). The second bath has a footed tub to soak your cares away. Once you're done soaking mabe you would like to watch TV or a movie. The living room has a TV with a built in DVD player we have left a few movies for your enjoyment or watch satellite provided by dish network. We also have Free Wi-Fi for you.

You will find upstairs located above the Master bedroom a lounge with TV. satellite, a game table, radio and mini-refrigerator. This also serves as a bedroom with two daybeds.

Lots of room in the back to enjoy nature. This home sits on 2.25 acres. Great for outdoor activities .. A very nice church is next to us on the East side and two very nice homes on the west side.

About Patricia

I am a military brat that was born in Okinawa. I grew up in Fayetteville and went to school here as well. I lived in Houston and worked in construction and real estate but I just had to come 'home' to the beautiful Ozarks and Fayetteville. I have two beautiful kids and live near by..

Patricia purchased this house in 2011

Why Patricia chose Arkansas

This house Is very old and it was about to be sold to a developer that wanted to destroy the old log home. I simply could not let that happen so I purchase it and renovated it to a point. I have provided a book at the property for visitors to peruse if they wish. It has a long history to tell.

What makes this house unique

Save history AND the property. It is wonderful to sit on the back deck and smell the fresh air, and watch the birds and have a yard large enough to enjoy. It is close to all activities in the area but not to close. Those of you that like to travel with you dog or cat bring them on. The big backyard is a perfect spot for them to get a little 'playtime' in, We have bags in the house to put your 'pooper Scooper' stuff in. The evenings are quiet and the air is fresh and you just have to sit back on the deck or by the fire pit and take a deep are now officially in heaven...OK, maybe a little over stated but good land, I feel that way.

Beautiful Country Setting Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Patricia had everything ready for our arrival including cold bottles of water in the refrigerator. The property has mature trees and the pool and hot tub offered a great opportunity to relax in the country atmosphere after a busy day.

We were down with another couple for Bikes, Blues, and BBQ. We were only a mile from everything we needed and a short ride into Fayetteville for the festivities. We were also at a great starting point for many marvelous rides through the Arkansas countryside.

Perfect stay in a perfect spot!

The character and charm of this old home is fantastic. Loved reading about the history while rocking on the front porch! The house had everything we needed and would highly recommend this for a weekend getaway. Thank you Patricia for sharing your home.

Don't really want to share about this magical place. We want to keep it a secret lol. This is an amazing place and we had the best time. I just can't say enough about just have to experience it yourself to know what I am talking about! We will be going back some day and we will be telling others about our time there. Wonderful, relaxing, magical, happy, awesome place!!!!

Great Location and Amazing Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 2 nights for our anniversary this year, and it was way better than spending the money on a hotel in town. The hot tub and pool were perfect, all the little extras that the owner left for snacks and drinks were the icing on the cake. We only had one small problem with the A/C when we got there and we contacted the owner and they immediately had someone come out and fix it which was really impressive late on a Friday evening. We will definitely be staying here again if we come up to the area for a trip. Only remotely less than perfect comment would be it would be nice if there was a bit more privacy around the pool and hot tub area given the proximity of neighbors, and even that was not that big of a concern.
