About the property

Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Once a quaint little farmhouse, built in 1952, this lovely bungalow was a country home with wood clapboard siding on a property of over 100 acres. It now sits placidly on 5 pastoral acres, secluded and serene. It is within city limits but it feels like the country. The home has an updated Mediterranean look, with stucco, stone, a cupola and arches. Peacefully poised amid tall oak trees, the little house is colorful, comfortable, clean, and cozy!

Convenient to many events and locations in northwest Arkansas: BBB (Bikes, Blues & BBQ), Razorback games, University of Arkansas graduation, golf tournaments, Joe Martin Stage Race, Northwest Arkansas Naturals games, Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, War Eagle Mill Craft Fair, Crystal Bridges, Walton Arts Center concerts and shows, Eureka Springs, Devil's Den State Park, Hobbs State Park, Prairie Grove Battlefield, Lake Fayetteville, Lake Wedington, Beaver Lake, White River, Bob Kidd Lake, Mount Sequoyah, Blessings at Clear Creek Golf Course, Brush Creek Golf Course, Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, Tontitown Historical Museum, Orphan Train Riders Museum, Puppy Creek Golf, Springdale Country Club, Fayetteville Country Club, Arts Center of The Ozarks, Vene's Native American Art Gallery, Arkansas and Missouri Railroad, Jones Center for Families, Shadow Valley Country Club, Arkansas Air Museum, University of Arkansas Discovery Zone, Stonebridge Meadows Golf Course, Paradise Valley Athletic Club, Clinton House Museum, University Museum, Headquarters House, Ozark Adventure Waterpark, Springdale Aquatic Center, Ridge House Museum, Ozark Military Museum, Razorback Park Golf Course, University of Arkansas Fine Arts Center Gallery, Haug House Brewing Company, Tontitown Winery, Old Main, Dickson Street, Fayetteville Farmers Market, Fayetteville Square, Walmart Museum, Rogers Historical Museum, Prairie Creek Country Club, Lost Springs Golf Club, Pinnacle Country Club, Daisy Airgun Museum, War Eagle Cavern, Lake Atalanta, Peel Mansion Museum, Wild Wilderness Drive Thru Safari, and many others!

The interior of the home has been completely modernized with new, green and energy efficient materials and appliances.

There are three bedrooms in the home. Two have queen size beds, the third has twin beds. There is also a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room, so the home can accommodate up to 8 guests total. There are two full bathrooms and a washer and dryer for your convenience. The great room is divided into a living area, dining area and small corner office space. The kitchen is fully equipped with cookware, dinnerware, utensils, and a small selection of commonly used condiments for your convenience.

The living room has a 42' LCD TV with Dish Network and DVR for your pleasure! Watch the game, record your favorite TV shows, or enjoy one of the many DVD's in the video library. We've provided a Wii system and a couple of games for your kids, or use the Wii Fit to make up for missing your workout! There is a small stereo and some CD's for your use, as well as a small collection of books, if you just want to chill and enjoy the quietude.

Overall size of the home is 1200 square feet (heated/cooled area). The rooms, while small, are comfortable. The term most guests have used to describe it is 'cozy'.

Are you an art lover? We hope you will appreciate the original art that adorns the walls in this little home.

If you have allergies, you'll be pleased to know that the home has all wood and tile floors, with few area rugs. Pets are not allowed and there is no smoking allowed in the house or on the property.

The front of the house has a small porch with rocking chairs, so that you can sit outside and appreciate the views. Bordering the backyard is a wooded area, which lends a touch of privacy. There is a stone patio in the backyard, with a canopy/gazebo and patio furniture. A charcoal barbecue grill, with charcoal and lighter fluid, is provided.

Whether you're visiting for a weekend or a month, you'll find this home 'just right'. Sit on the front porch in the evening and you might see one of the red tail hawks that live on the property. Or, maybe the pair of owls that visit frequently. Coyotes, raccoons, and an occasional armadillo or roadrunner can also be seen as the sun dips down on the horizon.

The owner's home is next door, in case you should need anything to make your stay more enjoyable. Please note that our vacation rental is not suited for parties or large gatherings, due to the proximity to our own home. If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay, this is it.

In addition to the one-car garage with garage door opener (which has a handy entry keypad), there is a parking area in front of the house, just beyond the trees. If you're concerned about privacy, there is rarely traffic on the dead end road (which is a private drive). In addition, we have a driveway sensor and security cameras, so the owner is aware when vehicles arrive and depart.

All items in the bungalow are inventoried. When you make your reservation, you will be sent a contract, house rules, and a partial list of items/amenities provided for your use (so that you don't have to bring the kitchen sink with you!).

About Leslie Ray

Art loves the outdoors and Leslie is an artist and art lover. They have three children, two adult and one teen. They both enjoy traveling and staying in vacation rentals.

Leslie Ray purchased this bungalow in 2000

Why Leslie Ray chose Springdale

Barnett Bungalow is located next door to the owners' home, but turning the little farmhouse on the property into a vacation rental was not their original intent. In fact, they originally updated the home in order to accommodate family guests. But, friends love the location, and suggested that the home would make an excellent short term rental. It is private, yet easily accessible, while very convenient to attractions and activities.

What makes this bungalow unique

The beauty of this location is that it is very near I-49, within city limits, and yet secluded. The property is nestled between an exclusive neighborhood of 2-acre properties and about 50 acres occupied by two large mansions.

One only has to travel 10-30 minutes to access innumerable attractions and activities in Northwest Arkansas. So, if you were hoping for a quiet little getaway, but you don't want to miss out on the fun, here you have the best of BOTH worlds!

You can see some amazing sunsets while taking a walk down the drive in the evening. Or, sit on the front porch and watch the sunrise. (July 4th celebrations are spectacular here! The home is on a hill, so you can see the country club fireworks!)

The pasture to the south of the bungalow is often visited by deer, and there are hawks and a pair of owls that live on the property. Occasionally, you may hear and see the coyotes that sometimes travel through, or the occasional raccoon or road runner!

If you come in the late summer, the crape myrtle trees will be blooming, and in the early fall, the apple tree may be in fruit.

The neighbors to the north have horses, which makes for an idyllic view. We have three small breed dogs next door, they may run out to greet you as you come up the drive.

Your initial inquiry will always be answered by us personally. Even our 'automated' messages, are individually customized, so that you will know you are communicating with a person.

We are not, and do not use, a management company. We are ordinary people who take great pride in providing you with a very personal experience in our home.

If you need any assistance with arranging reservations, please feel free to call.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the bungalow. It is simply beautiful and the home is appointed with all the amenities. We look forward to more visits to Arkansas and hope to return to the bungalow. It felt like home away from home.

Owner's Response: Garry and Robin, I'm sorry that you were disappointed with the rates, but you originally inquired for fewer guests, and later added more guests, for which there is a charge, as outlined in our rates on the website. I understand your dismay at having to pay additional fees for adding more guests, but this does not justify a poor review, since you agreed to the rate on the site and booked willingly. I was gracious as your host despite your having vocalized your buyers remorse to me in person, and attended to your request for assistance within an hour of contacting me.

Beautiful, cozy, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

Driving up I was shocked at how peaceful the property was despite being close to everything in NWA. Inside the home had ample space for our small family and had all the amenities we needed. Leslie was very helpful as well! We had a very comfortable trip and would definitely stay again!

This is a pristine and beautiful property.

I loved visiting the Barnett Bungalow. The house is very nice. Attention has been paid to details. The selection of furnishings is artful and functional. Secluded and also very close to all the activities. We walked from the property for some light exercise. It is amazing!
