About The Bunk house

A rustic, relaxing retreat with a modern twist
With grit, determination and vision this 2,100+ square foot former broom factory was transformed into 4 uniquely adorable nightly rental suites. This bygone factory is nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains on the outskirts of the beautiful and historic town of Mountain View, Arkansas.

A special variety of corn called "broom corn" was grown, harvested and transported to the broom factory where workers would expertly weave it into varying styles of brooms, each having its own specific use.

Four individual suites, can accommodate up to 4 guests, You can experience the history and heritage of this quaint mountain town and the greater Ozarks region.

You can experience the individuality of a different suite with each visit appreciating the diverse d├ęcor, themes, and tones, or pick your favorite and make yourself right at home with each stay.

House Rules

We know rules are boring, but to ensure all our guest have the best possible experience, please read and follow these few house rules
  • Check in is anytime after 4:00 PM and check out is no later than 10:00 AM
  • Smoking or vaping of any kind is prohibited in all of our suites. Smoking and vaping outside is permitted if it is done no closer than 30 feet from any entrance, and no cigarette butts or smoking litter is left behind.
  • Although we love our family pets, for the safety and comfort of our other and future guests, the Bunk House is not pet friendly.
  • We love gathering with friends and family, but to ensure the peaceful and unimpeded stay of our other guests, no parties are allowed.
  • To ensure the enjoyment and relaxation of your stay and our other guests, the hours between 10pm-8am are to be respected as quiet hours.
  • Since we are in a rural environment, the existing infrastructure is not that of which you may be used to. To ensure an uninterrupted stay we ask that you do not put anything down the drains but the provided toilet paper, water, or human waste. All wipes, feminine products, food scraps or other trash should be placed in the waste basket.
  • If anything is damaged, broken, or non-functional you must report that to the host immediately.
  • Items damaged, missing, or violations of our rules may also incur a $200 fee.
  • We ask that you embrace the culture of the Ozarks by removing your
  • shoes when indoors as frequently as possible. This also helps ensure the longevity of floors and furniture.
  • Since The Bunk House is in the country, bugs and wild critters are common. Keeping doors shut will greatly reduce the chance of bugs or other critters getting in and causing you, or us problems. So please keep doors shut as much as possible.
