About Helen Charton
We bought the Cottage in 2006 and a year later it burned. I had to start over with the cottage. Petit Jean Mtn. is a wonderful place and we feel blessed to get to share it with others.
Helen Charton purchased this Farmhouse in 2006
Why Helen Charton chose Morrilton
The Charton family has been farmers all our lives. Barnyard Friends and Stables is just a added plus to our farm. We use the barn as a teaching tool, we have children summer horse camps, riding horses and enjoy the fact that animals are good for the soul. .
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Our home is in the middle of all these animals and you will be waking to a rooster crowing in the morning and the sounds of the animals throughout the day. When staying with us you are always welcome to come to the barn to be with us or feed the animals. The horses back riding is $18.00 for a 30 minute ride and $27.00 for an hour ride.

Wonderful place for kids
We had a fabulous stay at the farm. The home is large and comfortable and we felt at home. Our hosts were very welcoming and met our needs. Our children had plenty of room to explore the farm and really enjoyed the farm experience. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Very roomy farm house and oh so peaceful!
We loved waking up to the animals! Our kids really enjoyed the horses, cats, kittens, dogs, goats, peacock, rabbit, donkey, and cows!! Their favorite part was the horseback riding!! Thank you for a great stay and family adventure Mrs. Helen!
Country farm experience
Miss Helen has created a comfortable place to introduce your family to various animals and the farm experience. Very different from just visiting a petting zoo. You can sit on the porch in the evening and see the animals settling down. In the early morning the head rooster starts calling the others out of the woods. The chickens, cats, birds and dogs all start heading to the barn for breakfast. Then Miss Helen calls a couple of horses at a time down to eat and saddle up. The horses are very calm and gentle and were selected for their sweet dispositions.
This a perfect place to relax, ride and introduce your kids to animals.
My family really enjoyed the farm, my grandchildren loved it, all the animals and Mrs. Helen was great & patient with them & the animals.

Petit Jean State Park is a mile down the road and has a host of things to do. The over look views of the Arkansas River and the site of our Arkansas beauty is at great abundances. At Matter Lodge is just a great place to dine. Then there is just miles of trails to hike. Lake Bailey is full of fish to catch and you in the summer you can rent a boat to get on the lake to catch the big ones.
The best hikes are to the water fall and to rock house cave. At different times of the year we have the Car Shows and active in the park.
