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), hardwoods 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.

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!

Cozy house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were visiting Little Rock for the first time and feel like we really lucked out in finding this place! It's located in the heart of an interesting historic district, just 3 blocks from the trendy shops and restaurants in SoMa and just a 15 minute walk to downtown (or a 3 minute drive). Location, location, location. As far as the property itself goes, it manages to feel both cozy and spacious, and the owners have thought of every detail: snacks in a basket to greet us, waters in the fridge, literature about the city and its sites, even restaurant suggestions on a cork board in the kitchen. As the property is an old carriage house built well over 100 years ago, it has its quirks--but these add to the charm and character and I wouldn't wish the owners to change a thing. We loved our time here and if we ever find ourselves in Little Rock again, we hope we'll be lucky enough to stay here!

Was the perfect place for us to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Donna's carriage house during our time in Little Rock for taekwondo World Championships. Her home was perfectly accommodating in so many ways. We had enough bedrooms for our family, separate bathrooms for our girls to use vs us (YAY!!!!), a washer and dryer, kitchen so as to cut costs of eating out, and most of all was centrally located to the tournament site. It was soooooo nice to be able to stay there vs. the typical, expensive hotel we usually stay in. Donna and her husband were very easy to communicate with. The home was absolutely beautiful, and we're already hoping to book it for next year. What a great and different experience World's was for us this year because of the convenience and comfort of being able to stay in Donna's quaint, cozy, and comfortable carriage house. We will definitely be back!!!!

Cute, convenient and well-appointed!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, my mom and I stayed here during a weekend trip to Little Rock in mid-May. Donna has thought of everything and you will find the carriage house very comfortable. Street parking is right by the entrance, so just a few steps to bring in your things. The neighborhood is very quiet and we loved wandering around and looking at all the lovely old homes in the area, including the governor's mansion. Others have noted the steep stairs to the bedrooms and there are also a few steps to the gates entrance. However, in both instances there are sturdy handrails should you need them. Donna had stocked the fridge with bottled water, and there was a nice selection of coffee available, as well as some snacky treats. She has a wide array of information about things to do and places to eat, as well. Just a few blocks away is South Main, with restaurants and coffee shops and a bakery all within easy walking distance. Neat area of Little Rock! We had a great time!

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), hand-scraped hickory 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 1,470 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 (a $25 non-refundable pet 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.
