5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom Little Rock vacation rental ideal for family reunions, wedding guests and professional retreats.
Bring your professional team, family or wedding guests together at a destination they will long remember. Listed on the national Register of Historic Places, the 1917 Cornish House has all the hallmarks of the gracious living of times past while offering the most contemporary updates to make your stay both pleasurable and comfortable (including high speed internet throughout!). Originally a family home, and currently the owners' second home, the mansion has been beautifully restored to acommodate larger groups, and is ideal for corporate retreats and family reunions. Although not a wedding venue, it provides cordial accommodations for visiting guests. A stained glass panel in the front door greets guests, and a grand hallway with period Odeon chandeliers leads to a spacious main living area with fireplace, library, sun room, dining room that comfortably seats ten, and other elegantly appointed rooms. Varnished oak floors, Honduras mahogany coffered ceilings, exotic Persian carpets and hand carved oak trim make this a truly glorious home. (If you loved the game of clue, you may think you might meet Professor Plum or Miss Scarlet around any corner!)
The five large bedrooms (each with one queen size bed) occupy the second floor, each recently redecorated. The master bedroom has a fireplace, ensuite bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower as well as a private sun porch with 50" TV and large walk-in closet. Two guest suites have private sun porches and share a bathroom with rain forest shower head and body jets. Two additional guest rooms share a bathroom with tub and shower. This floor also has an additional shared sun porch with coffee and tea service. There is also a first floor lounge with a fold-out couch if needed for children or additional guests. All bathrooms have hair dryers, shampoo, conditioner. Towels are provided for ten people. Please let us know if you have young ones using the fold-out couch so that more towels can be provided. High speed internet is available throughout.
The third floor ball room features hardwood floors and is an ideal meeting space or as a place for families and friends to hang out together, complete with wet bar. It also has a ping pong table.
The large kitchen, with 48" Viking gas stove, multiple sinks, two refrigerators with ice makers, wine cooler, and two dish washers can accommodate a professional chef or families and friends who just like to cook together. A brick veranda with portico stretches along the front of the mansion, providing excellent outdoor seating and dining space. The spacious grounds are enclosed in a decorative and secure fence, and there is ample parking in the circular drive.
Coming from near or far? Little Rock's central US location makes a great middle-of -the-country destination. The home sits in the middle of the historic Quapaw Quarter, and is a short walk from the thriving SoMa restaurant and retail district. Two blocks from the Governor's Mansion, a short drive to the Clinton Library, the state capitol, the quaint shops in the River Marketplace, and the beautiful park along the Arkansas River, the location meets the diverse recreational needs of all ages. Cool dining and nightspots abound in Little Rock. As an additional perk, the Cornish House is less than 5 miles from the airport, rarely taking longer than 10 minutes door to door.
