About the Property
Charming, Energy Star 5+ Rated Retreat; Leisure Or Sabbatical Stay.
Close to town, yet at the quiet end of the street, Happy Hollow house is only 7 minutes drive to the campus of the University of Arkansas, and the downtown Fayetteville Square where you will find the Farmer's Market twice a week from April to November. Enjoy the Historic District, Mt. Nord, for the Fall colors and Spring landscaping. We're also 32 miles from the Crystal Bridges museum of American Art.
There are three bedrooms: main bedroom has a queen bed, one has a full bed, and the other has two twin beds. Bedding is in the European style...once you try it, you will never go back! We learned this style in Germany. The bedding features hypoallergenic down comforters designed to replace the top sheet and blanket. Ah, pure pleasure!
The backyard is private with lots of bird activity, especially in Spring and Fall, for you birders. You may see our pair of Pileated Woodpeckers. You may also see a passing deer or fox now and then...and yes, there is an eight point buck glimpsed once in awhile during Fall.
This home also makes an ideal longer term stay for guest professors and scholars visiting the University of Arkansas from out of town or out of country. We have priced it accordingly to encourage our colleagues and their families to utilize our hospitality for their sabbatical stays.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Wayne and Kimberley Kuenzel have been residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas for 15 years. Wayne is a professor of Avian Neuroscience at the University of Arkansas, Kimberley is an Avian Taxidermist/ volunteer tutor at the University. They have three grown children.
Why the Owner Chose Fayetteville, AR, USA:
Happy Hollow House was purchased for the purpose of a mother/daughter project to try to create an energy efficient remodel as a Fayetteville entry into the 2012 Energy Value Housing Awards. Known as GreenPinkies, LLC, two women and a house, the team of Kimberley and Lauren Kuenzel (now Pereira) went on to place second, nationally in the moderate climate remodel category. True to it's projected energy consumption, Happy Hollow House consumes about $800/year in utilities. So successful was this remodel that a second home, a bungalow, was acquired in 2012 and slated for the same energy efficient makeover. This home will join the GreenPinkies vacation/sabbatical rentals in Spring of 2014.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Happy Hollow was a diamond in the rough when purchased and, although only a house, has responded in a delightful way to the renovations. Under the care of Kimberley and Lauren, it received a second chance to be loved and lived in. It has once again nurtured a visiting family, and continues to be a charming, welcoming home to our guests.
