About this listing
Enjoy our 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 a 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.
Since we moved to the apartment on the other side, we no longer serve breakfast, however you may have access to the shared kitchen.
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. Right now we are specifically interested in month long or longer stays.
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!
About the Host, Kevin
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.
