Guestbook comments from the owner

Kenneth and Walene Beeler, our hosts, are the most wonderful people you can imagine. They have put so many personal touches in this darling "ranch house". The view from the east window is one of the best I have ever seen. The ranch house is conveniently located so that a day trip to many locations is easy and you can return to the comfort and beauty of your home away from home. Even though this delightful home is listed in Paris, it is actually at the base of Mt. Magazine between Magazine and Paris. We love this place and our hosts.

Spectacular place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I am from the Paris, AR area- we decided this trip up to Paris we would rent a home for Thanksgiving week instead of staying with relatives. This rental is very clean, neat, tidy and well decorated-plenty of space inside and outside. It has a beautiful outdoor area and view of the Ouchita mountain range. It is convenient to Paris for groceries, shopping, etc. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking needs, there are several board games, movies, and outdoor toys for kids. The furniture is clean and comfortable. The cinnamon rolls that Walene left for us were delicious too! Can't go wrong renting out this vacation home- hope everyone enjoys the area as much as we do- Driggs and the surrounding area is a great quiet vacation destination!

Great place to stay, with cinnamon rolls waiting for us. Little things like coffee, fans if we needed them, and great decor. Highly recommended!

Sadly I got sick & couldn’t go to the wedding that weekend but my husband, his sister and her husband all reported how clean & quiet the house was. Thanks to Walene for all she did to welcome them!

Our new go-to escape!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING stay at this secluded, beautiful property! It IS on a dirt/rock road about 2 miles long & we were on motorcycles but even THAT was adventurous fun & we made it with no issues. EVERYTHING we needed was provided for us...all we had to bring was the food! The home is large, clean & comfortable. There is a HUGE grill out back (take your own charcoal or use the firewood provided) & a fire pit...there was even kindling laid out ready for us to light it up! Walene even had homemade CINNAMON ROLLS waiting for us as a welcome surprise & they were DELISH! We couldn't have been any more comfortable. This will DEFINITELY be a go-to for us when we want to escape the hustle & bustle of everyday life! I HIGHLY recommend if you like getting away, country life & PEACE & QUIET!
