6 Bedroom farm home, 14 acres. Ideal wedding location

Bedrooms 6
Space 4,000 sq ft
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Our Craftsman home, the adjacent dairy barn, and dairy plant building were placed on the National Registry of Historic Structures in 2013. Our 14 acre property was a part of the original Humphreys' Dairy Farm that opened in the early 1900's. The dairy farm was owned and operated by four generations of the Humphreys' family until it closed in 2007. We feel very fortunate that we were able to acquire such a historically significant property from the original family!

The home was originally built and occupied by Mr. Humphreys, the founder, and other family members.

As you enter the home from the expansive front porch, you enter a large foyer. On either side of the foyer are parlors with fireplaces. An attached bathroom has been added to one of the parlors so it can also be used as the sixth bedroom. This room has a day bed with trundle, along with a sofa and other seating.

Behind the foyer is the large dining room with the original furniture, on loan from the Humphreys' family. The dining room has a wall of windows that look out to the cheerful sun porch.

Adjacent to the dining room is the kitchen. The original kitchen has been totally updated and expanded. During the renovation, a brick fireplace was discovered in an interior wall. It is now a focal point in the kitchen. The kitchen table was made by the Humphreys from trees cut on the dairy property.

Also downstairs is the original master bedroom. This bedroom has a king size bed. The adjacent bathroom has been updated, including a jetted tub.

During the course of time, the upstairs was converted to four apartments for workers to live in. Each apartment had its own kitchen. All four apartments shared 1 bathroom! We have removed the kitchens and replaced them with updated bathrooms, so each bedroom now has a bathroom. One bedroom has a king bed. The other three have queen beds.

Why Luther Lewis chose Hot Springs National Park

Our daughter got married at Garvin Woodland Gardens in 2007. She wanted a reception location on the lake that could go well past midnight. Such a location did not exist, so we thought we would create the perfect location on the lake. We reached the conclusion that it could not happen, so we started looking for property near Garvin Woodland Gardens that could accommodate late night wedding receptions. When we found the Humphreys Dairy Farm, we knew this was it. The old dairy farm is a 10 minute drive from The Gardens. The Craftsman style farmhouse was perfect for renovating into 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. It is also large enough for small events for up to 50 guests. The old dairy barn, while in a serious state of disrepair, will make a great reception venue when restoration is completed. The dairy plant, which is best known for its chocolate milk, has the original brick floors and cooler where the milk and other dairy products were produced.

Great group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal property for a large group. Six couples stayed in this wonderful, comfortable, historic property over Derby weekend at Oaklawn. The home is beautifully furnished with antique, farm and cow memorabilia that reflect the home's age and history as dairy. A real bonus is the size - six bedrooms, each with their own full bath - plus the large farm kitchen, dining room and living areas. We had plenty of space and never felt crowded. Quite a bit of time was spent in the kitchen where we had all the appliances, dishes, and gadgets we needed - it's fully furnished. In addition, the owner was very responsive when we encountered a couple of minor problems.

If you've ever tried to find accommodations for a large group, you know it's not easy. This is our third try to find the ideal place and we're already planning our next visit to this beautiful property. We hope next time the weather is better to allow us to use the front porch and explore the grounds.

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 10 adults and 2 children stay for two nights. It completely met the needs of our party with the number of bedrooms and bathrooms available. The kitchen was nice and two dining areas were usable for our group. The grounds and really pretty as well. Would definitely stay again.

Great for 5 Couples

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 5 couples that stayed here for a weekend to go to the horse races. We will definitely go back! Everyone had their own bathroom which allows for some privacy. The beds were comfortable. The owners were great and very responsive and the only thing that came up was a password issue on the internet. This house reminded me of going to my grandparents house. I even enjoyed the slamming wood screen door. Highly recommend. The only negative I could see is that the 6th bedroom is basically the living room with a trundle bed. It can still be closed off like a bedroom and still has an attached bathroom but it is not a bedroom in the traditional sense. I think the owner tries to be clear about that in his description but just be aware if you happen to have six couples going that all the bedrooms are not created equal.

Very special place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great, superior accommodations in a lovingly restored old home. Huge bedrooms each with bath, it was able to house our entire group, EXTREMELY comfortably. To gather in the well-equipped kitchen for hours over meals was so great to be able to connect with our family. We were there celebrating a family reunion not too far away, and this worked out so well for all of us! Alicia & BJ (caretakers) were so nice, helpful and informative and not at all intrusive.

This place has a tremendous history. We spent hours walking around the grounds, ponds, and old facilities - we truly felt we were part of the past, and the future of this great great place! We even met Mrs. Humphreys who lives nearby, she shared wonderful stories!

Each bedroom and bath are clean and private, everything works perfectly. We sat on the big porch for hours, played Frisbee on the lawn, and truly enjoyed this historic property. Ice cold air-conditioning kept us comfortable, and our meals we easily prepared in the spacious kitchen. I can imagine a perfect party, wedding scene here, with plenty of room for both bridal parties - even a back staircase to keep everyone separate!

I cannot say enough good things about this place, we will definitely be back and we look forward to the additional improvements Luther & team make to the entire property.

Thank you so much for making this available!!!

Amazing Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were married in this house last weekend and it could not have been better. We had 40 guests with a catered lunch and there was plenty of room for everybody. Between the dining room, kitchen, foyer, two parlors and the front porch there was room to spread out to eat and visit. The ceremony was held on the steps of the large front porch with the quests seated or standing on the lawn.

Our combined family spent both nights nights in the house with us, and again there was plenty of room and privacy. Every bedroom has it's own bathroom. The house was quiet at night and we all slept well. The house is easy to access just a few miles off the bypass.

The owner was very nice and helpful during the planning process and during our stay and was prompt to answer all emails and phone calls. This would be a great house for an extended family and small celebrations.

Our 100 year old historic home, dairy barn, and dairy plant were built by the Humphreys family during the early days of their dairy farm operation. The original dairy farm encompassed over 400 acres. Our home sits on 14 of the original acres. Our setting is ideal for weddings, family reunions, or that special event you may be planning. The home, dairy barn, and dairy plant were placed on the National Registry of Historic Structures in 2013. The home is very convenient to Garvin Woodland Gardens, Oak Lawn Racetrack and Casino, Lake Catherine and Lake Hamilton, Outdoor Adventure Ziplines, Historic Downtown Hot Springs, and Magic Springs Amusement Park . All of these activities are 10-15 minutes from the home.
