Enjoy our guest room for a comfortable stop over with home hospitality or as a launch pad for exploring our city or region! We live a low-impact lifestyle revitalizing our old house; we enjoy providing visitors and travelers with affordable lodging.
In our historic, clean, but not freshly re-modeled home, you will have your own room with lots of windows, a good heater and/or window unit, and a full (shared)bathroom down the stairs. Though recently acquired, our 1/2 acre of urban land is being steered towards an edible food forest, complete with fruit trees and quite a bit of vegetable gardening. We move chickens around to add fertility, control weeds, and provide us and our guests with fresh eggs!
Your bed is a King-Sized Mattress and Box Spring that is firm yet comfortable.
Breakfast will be at the time of your choosing and include fresh chicken eggs(from our chickens), bacon(preservative free), and delicious home made sour kraut--vegetarians can request a fresh herb, egg scramble instead of bacon. Coffee or tea of course!
Nothing fancy here, but basic, affordable, friendly accommodations just two blocks from the infamous Central High School! We are less than 2 miles from the center of downtown, and less than 1 mile from the highway, so you will not be far away from much.
We are happy to host you for a short time and are open to longer term arrangements.
If you would like to have dinner with us the night of your arrival, we will include you in our meal plan for an extra 5-10 bucks per person, just let us know in advance if this sounds good. We eat a mostly whole food diet with lots of seasonal vegetables, grains, and sometimes meat.
Kevin is a commercial hot air balloon pilot and weather permitting, we may be able to arrange a sunrise hot air balloon ride in or around Little Rock during your stay.
We are open to sharing some refrigerator space and kitchen space with guests as the need arises.
We also have an upright piano and a couple guitars that you are welcome to play!
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy meeting people but are also happy to leave them to their own. We are happy to give recommendations for places to eat or things to do around town and often enjoy having coffee in the morning with our guests!
We love how close to downtown and the highway our neighborhood is. We love the character of the old homes, wide streets, and old trees! The empty lots and homes while a little bit sad are also full of possibility!
We are a block off of a busline that runs between ualr and downtown. Pretty easy to get to and from the airport.
Other Things to Note
Hot Air Balloon Rides are not free, but a great deal so don't hesitate to let us plan you one!
We have a friendly dog that lives outside. No animals allowed in the house!
We would like to know your arrival time as soon as you know it. Should be able to accommodate almost anytime with enough notice. We tend to prefer check-ins after dark!
Kevin and his partner, Tiffany, were very welcoming. The room was beautiful and clean with some tourist information and a clean towel and a bar of soap. It felt almost like a hotel. The house itself was a bit rustic, but they are in the process of remodeling. They also offered me food and coffee, which was very good. The only problem is the steps were a bit icy, but they are not northerners so didn't have the means to clear them, lol. The neighborhood is a little run down but seems to be on the upswing. It is very close to the first high school to be desegregated in the South, so it is in a very interesting part of Little Rock.
Kevin replied promptly to my request to book and I had a chance to talk with him briefly after I arrived following a long day of driving. The bed was comfortable, as was the room, and I was on my way in the morning after a good night of sleep.
A very warm, friendly house. A clean room and wonderful bed. I really enjoyed my stay in Little Rock and would defiantly come back.
I travel a lot. You may say I'm a professional traveler. And I'm not exaggerating to say that I wish I had a "Kevin" in every town. Staying at his place is perfect for my needs. It's an economy arrangement, no doubt, but it's clean and everything works, the environment is super friendly. That's all I require.
No Internet provided, but my phone (with Internet) has a great signal here. No TV, but personally I'm glad not to have it. Otherwise, everything I could possibly want at a great price.
I'll stay there again. If fact, I am. Tonight!
Nice, clean private room near downtown. Kevin is really nice person, always ready to help. Recommend to all visitors!
Kevin and his wife Tiffany were great hosts. They made us feel very welcome and were a wealth of information for things to do in the area. Their dog is also just lovely and very friendly. Arriving in the neighborhood near dusk can appear a little daunting with the abandoned houses in the area but once inside with the cosy gas heater on, you soon feel right at home.
Kevin and his wife are super nice. The room was comfortable and spacious. The house itself is pretty old, so they don't have central heat; instead they have a gas heater in each room which worked very well, but the trip from bedroom to bathroom was a little chilly. Breakfast in morning was delicious. The neighborhood isn't great. Overall, it was a terrific value. Two thumbs up.

I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA and have traveled all over the country flying my balloon and working in various aspects of landscaping and agriculture before (recently) embarking on this home-fix-up endeavor. I am enjoying growing a good portion of my own food, living with Tiffany, and improving my two old houses and their grounds.
I enjoy eating well and learning about what other people are up to!
I have a very nice dog who lives outside.
