This tower room mini-suite boasts an antique Austrian king size bed in walnut with matching marble topped end tables and washstand. Hues of gray-blue and brown lend this room an air of dignified serenity as the bed nestles behind portieres and tassels and overlooks the front fishpond and fountain.

Victorian parlor settee and chair ring the fireplace for that quiet romantic getaway for two. The bathroom includes a Victorian sink and Pullman bath with shower. The room is named for the youngest brigadier general of the Confederate Army, who was a native Arkansan.

The Petit Jean Room

$149.00 / $159.00 night

Named for Legend of Petit Jean, the young French girl who couldn’t bear to see her love sail away to the new world. She sailed unbeknownst to him, as the cabin boy, and was undiscovered until sickness claimed her life on the banks of the Arkansas River.  Filled with relics of military and sea regimen, the Petit Jean room reflects the strength required to leave family for a world unknown and the softness of the love that inspired the courage.

Done in dark walnut, the ornately carved high backed Empire queen bed is in striking contrast to the romantic blues and whites of the sitting area and the room-side marble sink and Pullman bath with shower.

  • $149 – $159 per night, double occupancy

The Washburn-Welch Room

$169.00 / $189.00 night

Escape to the solitude of this spacious octagonal room finished in shades of aubergine and green, complimented by a French walnut king sized bed (can be converted to twin sized beds) and lace draping the windows. Recall the treasures of a past era in the travel worn hump-back trunk or curl up in a cozy Victorian settee.

Named for Presbyterian ministers who evangelized Arkansas in the 1820′s and preached the first sermon west of the Mississippi.
