About the property

Katie Pearl Bungalow: Weekender specials: Sleep In! Checkout on Sunday is 5pm

Originally built by Albert Simpson in 1928, this oak framed typical Arkansas bungalow has been fully remodeled and upgraded while preserving parts of its quirky originality. It has an Arkansas stone fireplace in the dining room, now converted to gas with remote on and off. The kitchen and three other rooms can be cozy or opened to create an open floor plan which is light, relaxing and conducive to entertaining.

There are two bedrooms, both with queen beds. The Yellow Bedroom has a built in office desk.The bedding features hypoallergenic down comforters designed to replace the top sheet and blanket.

Enjoy the heated tile floors in both Bathrooms. One bathroom has the option of being shared between the two bedrooms, thus creating a bedroom & office suite for the business traveler.

There is also a four season glass addition, with a heated tile floor, facing out onto the southern fields where you might see deer or coyotes while you enjoy your morning coffee.

Enjoy the Western facing front porch swing. Nostalgia for a by-gone era!

Close to town, yet still in nature, on the plateaus of the Ozark Mountains, the backyard is 1.5 acres overlooking 30 acres and the Ozark Mountain skyline in winter. It is private and very quiet.

This home also makes an ideal longer term stay for guest professors visiting the University of Arkansas, Healthcare professionals working with Willow Creek , Mercy. or Children's Hospitals, and Walmart and Tyson visiting representatives. We have priced it accordingly to encourage our colleagues and their families to utilize our hospitality for these longer stays.

About The Owner

Wayne and Kimberley Kuenzel have been residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas for 19 years. Wayne is a professor of Avian Neuroscience at the University of Arkansas, Kimberley is an Avian Taxidermist/ volunteer tutor at the University. They have three grown children.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why The Owner chose Springdale

These 1.5 acres originally belonged to the adjoining 17 acres of the Kuenzel property and became available to be once more included in the whole tract, in 2012. On the land, was a neglected bungalow of little or no value. Its fate hung in the balance for three months as we debated whether to restore it or raze it. A neighbor informed us of its unique heritage to the Stony Point area. ...We decided to preserve its historicity.

What makes this bungalow unique

Watch the sun rise through the sliding doors of the master bedroom or watch sunset from the West-facing front porch swing. Amazing glass addition on the south side with a heated floor. Listen to the whinny of horses and watch them graze in the neighboring pastures. Quiet, quiet, quiet surroundings.

A clean and cozy retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed a lengthy stay at Katy Pearl. The owner, Kim and her family, made us feel so welcomed and comfortable. Kim was always available if we needed anything, yet respected our privacy. The house was so clean and and stocked with the all essentials. The kitchen was well equipped, which made it easy to prepare all our meals. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful yard and deck! The sun room was perfect for morning coffee and dinners. It was so nice to come home to a peaceful atmosphere after a long day, yet the house is located only about 15 minutes from all the action in Fayetteville.

We were fortunate enough to also rent another house that Kim owns. It's called Happy Hallow. It was just as beautiful, clean and comfortable as Katy Pearl. I highly recommend both homes.

Loved, loved, loved!

We came to Fayetteville to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. This cute house fit exactly what we needed in a place to host a gathering of family and friends that came to celebrate with us. It was a super relaxing and comfortable place to stay. (Beds and bathrooms were top notch). Can’t say enough about our hosts and the accommodations! It’s a win!

We really can't say enough about our stay at the Katie Pearl house. Kimberly and Jessica were super accommodating, gracious hosts. We LOVED this house- comfortable, warm and inviting, great appliances and kitchen-and the bathrooms are beautiful. The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds are really comfortable. Oh, and for bird watchers - bluebirds! The Sunroom was our favorite. It was hard to leave and go home!! We look forward to our next visit.

Very quaint home with lovely touches like the heated floors in the bathrooms and conservatory!

  • 5 of 5

We found Pearl bungalow to be a lovely and peaceful home. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Close to Springdale and Fayetteville as well as area attractions and shops. It was nice to watch the wild life as we had our breakfast and to walk around the fields. We would recommend this home for other families or a couples get away!
