About Jeff and Sarah Croswell

Meet the Croswell Crew and welcome to our family's Peace of Petit Jean! We are Jeff and Sarah Croswell, both native Arkansans, along with our seven wonderful children. Jeff, a graduate of University of Arkansas, is an Electrical Engineer for AT&T, our resident handy man, and serves on the board of directors of several local organizations. Sarah is an online Science Instructor for Arch Ford Co-op and is President of the Conway County Arts Council. She is also the drama director and LEGO Robotics coach at Sacred Heart Catholic School in Morrilton, where 6 of our children are enrolled. Our three oldest children serve as the cabin cleaning and grounds crew, and our middle daughter, Kendall, is the certified babysitter and sells her homemade baked goodies upon request.

Jeff and Sarah Croswell purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Jeff and Sarah Croswell chose Morrilton

The Rock House Cabin was our main residence until 2014, when we moved into town to be closer for all the children's activities. At one time this property served as home to Turtle Rock Farms--our family's Certified Naturally Grown pastured poultry and heirloom tomato farm and greenhouse. Petit Jean Mountain was always our favorite summer destination, so when we had the opportunity to purchase a cabin, we jumped on it. While remodeling, our family fell in love with the idea of living here more than just on the weekends, so we sold our house in Conway and made the move permanent. The original cabin had two bedrooms, one bath, one closet, and no flooring or central heat and air. In order to accommodate a family of our size, we added two bedrooms, two baths, several closets, central heat & air, two porches, new windows, flooring, a laundry room, siding, and remodeled the kitchen. This property has been a labor of love for us and we hope to always keep it in our family for getaways, parties, and reunions. Sharing the Rock House Cabin with others will ensure that our family's Peace of Petit Jean will be around for years to come.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our nonprofit board held our annual board retreat at the Rock House Cabin and it was perfect! The scenic, quiet setting was just what we needed to get our creative juices flowing. The spacious great room was perfect for socializing, group discussions, and our evening jam session. The open kitchen allowed us to keep our planning sessions going while cooking our meals. Everything we needed and a lot of the extras were provided for us. The beautiful rock fireplace made the whole place warm and cozy. The only regret was the weather didn't allow us to get outside and enjoy the park amenities directly across the road. We will definitely make Rock House Cabin the home of our annual board retreat!

Cute house

  • 3 of 5

It was a cute house. wish we would have had better communication. Didn't know one bathroom was under remodel. ( made it hard to have a large group there getting ready for a wedding). Also had to frantically email and ask for way to get into house. Never got a welcome email with codes and info. House was good. Plenty of room except for the bathroom under remodel. ( was kind of weird to find open bars of used soap in bathrooms, food left in fridge, used razor in bathroom, shampoo, conditioner and shaving cream in the showers and tuba. Made me wonder how clean the bedding was. Yard was fine. Overall I would rate it a C.

Owner's Response: Sorry about the miscommunication about the tub remodel. We have 3 bathrooms and it was only the tub that was out of commission, the remainder of the bathroom was functional. The good news, is that after many delays, it has finally been repaired! The email with check-in information is an automated email from VRBO, so that was beyond our control. As soon as they contacted us, we responded with the check-in info. We provide complimentary shampoo, bodywash, condiments, etc as a service to our renters if needed. I'm sorry you felt that was included by accident.
