Property description

SLEEPS 15????
The box to the right states that our house sleeps 15. This is a required box that is supposed to state maximum occupancy. We have a total of one queen bed, 2 full beds, and 4 twins. That will sleep 10 "normally". Any number of guests over 10 will have to sleep more to a bed, use the couch, bring an air mattress, etc.. We are flexible on the 15 number. We just had to pick some number for maximum occupancy.

There is a link to our website at the bottom of the "Owner Info" section. See "Owner Info" tab above.

Our home has 2 bedrooms and a loft. The master bedroom has its own bath with a shower. The great room has a tall vaulted ceiling with two exposed cypress trusses. The loft has 4 twin beds and a full size bed.
We have basic satellite TV and internet access from DISH network.
This is a new home, finished in June, 2014. It has 1800 sq ft, porches front and back.
The area around our home is quiet and really laid back. You won't hear much out of the closest neighbors, if anything. The concrete front porch is cool and shaded most of the time. There might be 4 or 5 cars drive by each day. Pretty private place. Yet only 15-20 minutes from groceries, gas, restaurants, marinas, etc.. Or about 2 minutes from being in the lake at Cove Creek Recreation Area.
We have a nice fire pit you can gather around and make s'mores or more. You won't need to bring your wood. There will be plenty nearby.
If you have younger kids who need to burn off energy, you are welcome to romp around on 12 acres that are part of our property here.
We have put together a "poor man's" frisbee golf course you are welcome to use. We have a number of frisbees and course map/scorecards.

NOTE: We DO NOT rent our home for 'bachelor' type parties.

Owner info

About the owner: Bean Point. Where did that name come from? Jesse Bean was born in 1840 and, as best as we can determine, lived most of his life within a mile of our house. He left and fought with the Confederate Army. As he was returning home, he passed a farm and saw a woman out working her farm. He found out she was a widow with several small children. They eventually got married and she moved back home with him. Jesse died in 1899. Susan's granddad bought 80 acres here in 1957. In the decade or two after 1963 and the coming of Greers Ferry Lake, they sold off some of the lots that overlook the lake. After her grandparents' death, the remaining land was divided among their four children. We inherited some of it and bought more, intending to finish the subdividing that was started years earlier. We have completed that project. We have several lots for sale and a weekend home that we use and rent out to folks who come here to enjoy the lake or just get away. We look forward to meeting you if you choose to stay at Bean Point.

Why the Owner Chose Quitman, AR, USA:
Our house is new (built in 2013-2014). It is fresh. It will be clean. We do not use property managers. It does not smell like a motel room. The nearest house is a good football field away. There is very little noise. If you are looking for a quiet laid back place to hang out, this is it. Are you an early riser? If so, you may see several deer meander across the lawn. I saw four raccoon in the middle of the day in the front yard not long ago.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
If you have any interest in building or buying a second home in the area, consider Bean Point. There are great building sites. I have been a building contractor for 30+ years in this area and would be glad to help you, build for you, or just answer a few questions.
