Property description

Welcome to a restful escape from your busy life, or an active time spent seeing and doing in a classic American hill town. The choice is yours!

Located in the rolling eastern Ozark Mountains, in the heart of a 17-block national historic district just 90 minutes from Memphis, we can help occupy you with things to see and do here, or you can relax and enjoy what the Italians call “il dolce far niente,” the sweetness of doing nothing!

We are at the starting point of three of Arkansas’ four heritage trails: The Southwest Trail, The Trail of Tears, and The Civil War Trail, here in Arkansas, “The Natural State”!

You’re on your own! Our unique, opulent apartments, with no staff on site, offer value and a memorable experience perfect for quiet getaways as well as for honeymoons, anniversaries, and other special occasions.

Featuring new construction inside a beautifully rehabilitated 1902 commercial building, we offer exceptional downtown lodging in Pocahontas, Arkansas, USA, with the 21st century comforts you enjoy and enough original architectural features to give the feel of the classic building you’re calling home in Pocahontas.

Pamper yourself with a stay in either of The Lesmeister’s two furnished apartments. Each comfortable apartment includes:

A Bedroom with:
• King size bed with high-threadcount sheets
• Both firm and soft pillows
• Bathrobes and slippers
• Since some people enjoy going to the sleep while listening to soothing sounds, each bedroom includes a “white noise machine” you can use if you wish, to produce the sound of rain or a waterfall or forest sounds.

Each private bathroom has:
• Heated floor
• Oversized Turkish cotton towels and wash cloths
• Ultra-clean Sanijet spa tub with fragrant bath gels
• A shower
• Towel warmer
• Toilet with heated seat/Bidet with warmed water
• Hairdryer
• Lighted magnifying makeup mirror
• Indulge in our body lotion selections, with three different European body lotions to sample.
• A skylight to let the natural light come in.

Free Wi-Fi, telephone, multiple high-definition flat screen cable televisions, and a DVD/Blu-ray player.

For ambiance, we furnish a wood-burning stove in each living area. We’ll provide some wood. You provide the romantic spark!

Central heating and air conditioning (each apartment has its own independent system).

If you’re so inclined, you can save money when traveling by preparing some of your own meals. Each apartment includes a kitchen with full size appliances including ice maker and dishwasher, with the necessary utensils, wine glasses, silverware, plates, pots, pans. We even stock a few cookbooks in case you want to experience the joy of cooking in your free time.

Each apartment has a utility room with iron & ironing board and a washer and dryer for use by our guests.

The Laurel apartment features the famous Lesmeister Cistern, a marvel of early 20th century workmanship guests can safely view through a window in the apartment bedroom.

Keypad Keyless Entry: Come and go as you wish. Our properties feature “self check-in”. We don’t have staff on-site. You’re pretty much on your own during your stay with us (but you can call us if you need help). In place of door keys, we will send you a 4-digit code you’ll enter into a keypad on the door each time you want to unlock the door. Once inside, there’s also a manual deadbolt you can set to double-lock the door.

You’ll find a welcome booklet in your apartment that offers information on how to operate the heat and air conditioning, the televisions, etc., as well as lots of helpful information on things to see and do in the Pocahontas area. Make yourself at home and start enjoying the stay!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I have been lucky to travel all over the world, and I always wanted to bring to my hometown some of the feel for the wonderful places I have seen and stayed in during my travels.

Why the Owner Chose Pocahontas:
After a trip to Italy in 2009, I noticed the wonderful, huge limestone foundation stones of the old Lesmeister building in my town, and it reminded me of the wonderfully restored old buildings I had recently seen in Italy. This led to my purchase of the building, and the 2-year project to rehabilitate the old building to create Lesmeister Guesthouse.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The Lesmeister is unique in our area, giving the modern comforts people enjoy while maintaining much of the historic character of the old building you're calling your home in Pocahontas, including a clothes washer and drying in each apartment, for use by our guests if needed.
