Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

The kirkwood cottage carriage house is located 4 blocks off i-630 - just minutes from the va med center, uams and children's hospitals, in the heart of the business, south main (soma) and river market districts. The carriage house is a good choice for business travelers or couples who want a romantic getaway and it is perfect to accommodate your extended stay guests. Pricing will depend upon length of stay.

A private entrance through the brick courtyard (doorbell at the privacy fence gate), carpeting in living room, painted wood floors upstairs and the original brick floors in entry and kitchen. Two gas log heaters, period light fixtures, and a wood-burning stove add to the historic nature of this upscale 1,400 square foot barn. Updated features like wifi and two flat panel tv’s with direct tv, a whirlpool tub in the downstairs bathroom, another full bathroom upstairs, a full size washer and dryer, and quality mattresses in the two adjoining bedrooms ensure you the comfort you deserve.

We are a small pet friendly place (owners have a yorkie) so you never have to leave home without them and the carriage house even has a doggie door (there is a deposit per pet).

The kitchen is furnished with a side by side refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, two coffee makers (12 cup and single cup) and self-cleaning oven. Dishes, silverware and utensils are included for your convenience, as well as thick, fluffy towels and linens. The enclosed courtyard has a small pond and a gas grill, should you want to cook or entertain outdoors. Automatic lighting means you never come home to a dark house. The carriage house is located in the governor's mansion historic neighborhood and is great for walking or bike riding, with an active arts and entertainment district just 3 blocks away on south main. The river market is quite close as well, with many restaurants, bars, shopping, and the clinton presidential library. Walgreens, a grocery store and post office are just blocks away.

About Donna Skulman-Loyd

semi retired couple

Donna Skulman-Loyd purchased this cottage in 1983

Why Donna Skulman-Loyd chose Arkansas

We bought the historic Kirkwood Cottage (circa 1882) and its carriage barn initially because it was close to work. But the historic district is full of interesting people and always has something going on.

What makes this cottage unique

Large open space in the heart of the city - close to everything!

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Carriage Hosue. Bear greeted us upon arrival and showed us to the house. Everything was very nice and we loved all of the little details that gave it such character. Our group of 4 fit well and had room to invite family over for drinks on the patio or sit in the living room. Exactly what we needed! Donna was kind and peeked out for a hello during morning coffee on the patio. We will stay again and have already told several people about it.

Charming and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this charming cottage in the heart of Little Rock. It was close to everything. Beds were comfortable and everything we needed was right there. The only issue was that the bedrooms are upstairs and the stairs are kind of steep, which was difficult for my mother. I loved that there was a bathroom on both floors. All in all it was a great stay.
