The Location

Located on the crest of Mount Kessler, surrounded by forty acres of wooded hills and pastures, and engulfed in a tranquil forest of Maples and Oaks, The Deepwood House provides an ideal retreat for small groups, families or individuals who desire a unique, private, and relaxing place to stay while visiting Fayetteville.

Goats and sheep graze in pastures on the property, which includes a creek and pond.

The House

The award-winning architectural masterpiece, constructed in the Ozark tradition of cedar wood, stone, and glass, was designed by the late former University of Arkansas Architecture professor Herb Fowler, who aptly christened it 'Deepwood'.

The home is fully furnished and equipped, with a master bedroom and bath and two guest bedrooms sharing a second bath. All the floors are natural flagstone, which beautifully complement a massive stone fireplace dominating a cozy living room.  It has a spacious deck nestled in a mature maple forest with views down into Fayetteville. 

All kitchen supplies, grilling equipment, linens and towels, are included. Free WiFi and Direct TV are also available for guest use.

The Deepwood House is located on Finger Road, which runs south from MLK Jr. Boulevard (Highway 62 West) between WalMart and Lowe's. The drive from that intersection takes about 4 minutes, one mile on paved road and one on a gravel road. The gravel road is well maintained and accessible except in the most extreme winter weather.
