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!

I enjoyed my stay. Donna could not have been nicer, and the apartment has everything you need. I liked walking around the historic neighborhood.

Commodious and Central Access to Little Rock

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house, a completely detached building from the main residence has lots of character and charm, so you will enjoy staying in a one of a kind place in this historical neighborhood. The location was perfect, as downtown is just a mile north. I walked it to the start of the Little Rock Half Marathon, which actually came right through this neighborhood so my mom and son could watch the race easily. The house itself had plenty of room for the 3 of us. Two bedrooms upstairs with a bath (you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the other), and the option of an air mattress on the first floor. Place was well stocked including Keurigs, snacks, and water, as Donna clearly has tried to think of everything. We all fell in love with the air jet tub, perfect for sore legs. I would highly recommend this place for couples and small families looking for a convenient, centralized way to explore Little Rock.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. The portable bed downstairs is an EZ bed that folds up into a suitcase and inflates with legs so no one has to sleep on the floor.

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO stay and we didn't really know what to expect. Fortunately for us it met our best expectations. The carriage house was spacious, clean and very comfortable for both of us and our dog.

The kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils needed to prepare any food you might wish to make and plenty of coffee choices were available for the Keurig coffee maker.

We particularly enjoyed the location since it offered the necessities needed within a 7-8 block area. Good pizza (Radunos), good coffee and pastries (Community Bakery), good breakfasts and lunches (The Root), a supermarket, Walgreens, and a U.S. Post Office were available within that area.

Donna was very helpful and made us feel welcome during our stay.

We enjoyed the patio area and the feeling of security provided on the premises.

A very enjoyable way to begin our VRBO experience.

Business & Pleasure in The Heart of Little Rock!

  • 5 of 5

The Kirkwood Cottage became our "Home Away From Home" during our 3 month consulting project in Little Rock. What a perfect way to end each day, having this special space to come home to and recharge. So charming and cozy and situated in the heart of Little Rock's Historic District just blocks from downtown Little Rock and The River Market Area. Donna & W.B. have catered to every detail in assuring that everything necessary is at your fingertips and were right there to respond to any questions plus always proactive in keeping us aware of local activities and upcoming events. Even making our Holidays, extra special...as we returned one evening to find the cottage beautifully decorated for Christmas. Finding extended stay accomodations around the country, sight unseen, can be a challenge. In this case...no surprises! The Kirkwood Cottage was exactly as presented. Thank you Donna & W.B., we hope to have the opportunity to be your guests again, sometime in the future!

Your home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We came to Little Rock to meet up with friends for the weekend. We were looking for place where we could relax and catch up. The Carriage House was the perfect place to do just that. The inside and outside living spaces are warm and inviting. Amenities abound and there was not a single thing we needed that wasn't at our disposal. The Carriage House has a true historic charm yet also offers every modern convenience you could possibly need.

The location is perfect for those that want to take in the historic sites in Little Rock and lots of great restaurants nearby.

We leave with fond memories of time shared with our friends and will definitely stay here on our next trip to Little Rock.
