Quite a calming, quaint and congenial place to concede to.

  • 5 of 5

Darrah’s Cottage doesn’t deserve any derogative discussion at all— definitely not. Quite the contrary, Darrah was cordial in communications with this couple. This experience was exceptionally exquisite. The hospitality helped us hide away in home style habitat. Rest and relaxation revived our wearied remains. Thank you Darrah for thinking of those traveling through with such thorough thoughtfulness! We loved it— literally!

A lovely place

  • 4 of 5

We had every thing we could have asked for the very afternoon we arrived because it was so well stocked and neat and clean. The grounds around the place were actually like being in a park and our dogs really enjoyed that. The owners were very gracious, but unobtrusive. I would stay there again if we ever return to that area.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Hubby an I are in Wisconsin and my dad lives in Arkansas. This little cabin was the perfect place for us to stay while we visited. In the past we stayed in hotels in Fort Smith. This was so much better.

Of course we were there for the first cold weekend But it was cozy in the cabin with the wood stove. We got in late for our first night and they had even turned on the heater to take the chill out.

Fresh eggs from their chickens in the fridge plus lots of spices and pantry items to use.

Bed was comfy lots of extra pillows and blankets if you need them

I highly recommend this cabin to anyone that is visiting the greenwood area

We will definitely come back when we visit again.

Beautiful well kept property nuzzled in the woods. Cute fishing pond and walking trails on property. Welcoming and accommodating the family was really sweet. I would totally recommend this place.

Cute and cozy space

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here! The new owners are sweet and hospitable. All the basics we needed were in the pantry/fridge. Such a beautiful landscape to wake up to. We spent a couple days in Fort Smith and had a great time resting back at "home." We would love to stay here again!
