The Cottrell Cottage

Built around 1910, you’ll go back in time when you step foot in this newly restored Dogtrot Cottage. Sitting on top of a mountain in Shirley, this is one of the few dogtrots still standing in Arkansas. The house was originally designed with open-ended passage that runs through the center of a house, flanked by two enclosed living spaces. The living room has been restored to how it would have looked in the early 1900’s. Each room in the house is themed for a different decade. The home sits on 1 acre of land with plenty of room for parking cars, ATVs, boats, etc. Two screened in porches and a large covered front porch makes it ideal for outdoor enjoyment. For an additional $35 fee, you can have private access to our riverfront land on the Middle Fork of the Little Red River about a 3.5 mile drive from the house.

Mammaw's Mountaintop Retreat

Mammaw’s Mountaintop is inspired by my grandmother. It’s super cozy, private, quiet, & the perfect get away. Located on 1.38 acres, this 3 bed/2 bath home is across the street from Petit Jean State Park and Lake Bailey. It’s also walking distance to the Outpost, Coffeehouse, & very close to Visitors Center, campgrounds, & Museum of Automobiles. Gnomes are hidden throughout the grounds & makes for a fun search for the whole family and deer frequent the property in the evenings.
