About Jeff and Sarah Croswell

Meet the Croswell Crew and welcome to our family's Peace of Petit Jean! We are Jeff and Sarah Croswell, both native Arkansans, along with our seven wonderful children. Jeff, a graduate of University of Arkansas, is an Electrical Engineer for AT&T, our resident handy man, and serves on the board of directors of several local organizations. Sarah is an online Science Instructor for Arch Ford Co-op and is President of the Conway County Arts Council. She is also the drama director and LEGO Robotics coach at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Morrilton, where 6 of our children are enrolled. Our three oldest children serve as the cabin cleaning and grounds crew, and our middle daughter, Kendall, is the certified babysitter and sells her homemade baked goodies upon request.

Jeff and Sarah Croswell purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Jeff and Sarah Croswell chose Morrilton

The Rock House Cabin was our main residence until 2014, when we moved into town to be closer for all the children's activities. At one time this property served as home to Turtle Rock Farms--our family's Certified Naturally Grown pastured poultry and heirloom tomato farm and greenhouse. Petit Jean Mountain was always our favorite summer destination, so when we had the opportunity to purchase a cabin, we jumped on it. While remodeling, our family fell in love with the idea of living here more than just on the weekends, so we sold our house in Conway and made the move permanent. The original cabin had two bedrooms, one bath, one closet, and no flooring or central heat and air. In order to accommodate a family of our size, we added two bedrooms, two baths, several closets, central heat & air, two porches, new windows, flooring, a laundry room, siding, and remodeled the kitchen. This property has been a labor of love for us and we hope to always keep it in our family for getaways, parties, and reunions. Sharing the Rock House Cabin with others will ensure that our family's Peace of Petit Jean will be around for years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our nonprofit board held our annual board retreat at the Rock House Cabin and it was perfect! The scenic, quiet setting was just what we needed to get our creative juices flowing. The spacious great room was perfect for socializing, group discussions, and our evening jam session. The open kitchen allowed us to keep our planning sessions going while cooking our meals. Everything we needed and a lot of the extras were provided for us. The beautiful rock fireplace made the whole place warm and cozy. The only regret was the weather didn't allow us to get outside and enjoy the park amenities directly across the road. We will definitely make Rock House Cabin the home of our annual board retreat!

Awesome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice (and large) cabin with plenty of room. It was very well equipped, more so than probably any VRBO we have stayed at, which is quite a few. We had a great time exploring and finding "bear caves" with our two boys! There are many hikes and trails for beginner and experienced hikers. Our kids are almost 4 and almost 6, and could handle many of the trails. It is a beautiful place that fells like it is in the state park. I would definitely recommend this cabin!

Beautiful location, clean house, yard out of control!

  • 3 of 5

The house was very clean. We reminded the owners of a few items that needed to be restocked. The location was very pretty and handy to Jean Petit Park. We were very disappointed that the yard was a grown-up mess. It looked nothing like this pretty photo. The owners were very accommodating and returned the extra dog charge after our stay when we let them know we did not take the dogs after all.

Great quiet, fairly secluded place in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

This was a mom and daughter trip with friends to get away and enjoy the outdoors. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed from linens to kitchen utensils. We made fabulous steaks on the gas grill. It was a short walk to the cave and if you are up for getting a long hike in, you can make it up to the visitors center and boathouse area, no problem. Beautiful park and lots of outdoor fun to be had.

Cabin on Top the Mountain

  • 4 of 5

We came in town for a family wedding and used the Cabin on top of Petit Jean Mountain. The views arriving at the cabin were beautiful and we had a very nice time. The cabin was very spacious and had plenty of room. It was clean and had ample bathrooms for all the adults we had with us. We would definitely stay here again. We drove trough the night from New Orleans and the owners were gracious enough to allow us to arrive earlier than the 3 pm check in time. We can't thank them enough!!

Best Spring Break Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this cabin for spring break and we had a blast! The house was great, everything was clean, there was plenty of space (for Just Dance battles) and all of the technology worked flawlessly. Even though we're college kids, we had lots of fun on the trampoline and the rockwall loft. The location is excellent, we were within walking distance of several hiking trails and the Red Bluff overlook (which is where we went to watch the sunset, it was gorgeous!!). There's practically no light pollution up on the mountain so we spent hours just looking at the stars at night because it was so beautiful outside. Absolutely no complaints, my friends and I had tons of fun and are already planning on coming back next year! I would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a place to rest and relax or for somewhere to go hiking and exploring, you can do both here!
