  • Absolutely Wonderful!!


    This property was so much fun! It is surrounded by historical buildings and has a great private back yard. We had a fire in the braiser pit, grilled every night, and had coffee on the front porch every morning. The house is fascinating!! Brian and Christina have made a truly magical space. There is so much to explore in this part of the state. Calico Rock is a charming town and we will be visiting again as soon as possible.

  • Great Pick


    Great place to go for hiking, fishing, shopping, central to many historic/scenic sites. The nearby(short short walk) town has a great museum and several quant shops and the people are all friendly and helpful. The town even has a "speak easy" that you must visit and have a laugh with the great staff. Our host Brian and Christa have a wonderful place in the middle of Peppersauce Ghost Town and are great and informative host. Upon our arrival we were greeted with fruits and snacks, this was greatly appreciated because of our late arrival and long drive. It is full of antique furniture, pictures and various items that make it a unique and a cozy place to stay. It also has a nice area in back for gathering and a fire pit. We didn't feel the presence of any ghost, they were probably resting up for Halloween which was 2 days after we left, but you never know when they might show their presence. I will recommend this place to stay to all my family and friends that want a nice, quiet and roomy place to stay and have adventures.
