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, 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.
The award-winning architectural
masterpiece, constructed in the Ozark tradition of cedar
wood, stone, and glass, was designed by 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
Deepwood House can accommodate
up to six people, but day-use accommodations for more can
be arranged. Forest and meadow paths
are available for those who like to walk, bike, or run.
