“A great Victorian retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

A huge beautiful house, nestled on an acre in town, surrounded by mountains. It couldn't get any better. Mark was a great host, a wonderful cook, and easy to talk to. The room was clean and cozy, and the bed was comfortable. An amazing place to stay for young and old, especially for first-time Bed and Breakfast visitors like us.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Violet's Arbor room. There was no bathroom inside the room, but a private one a...

We've been to Mountain View many times for the festivals or just to listen to some good bluegrass music. I've always wanted to stay at one of the B&B's that are around the court square or even just outside of Mountain View. We got just that chance this weekend. We reserved the room (Rose's Retreat) just a couple of days before we were to be in town. In busier times, that would have been impossible. The room was smaller than I thought it would be, but it was nice. It probably was a little to "girly" for me, but my wife liked it. This was the weekend after Valentine's. The inn was full by the time Saturday night rolled around. So that meant that breakfast the next morning was packed. Every B&B has a different way of setting this up. This inn was unique as there were 3 round tables, all having a lazy susan in the middle with all the food. When everyone got what was in front of them, the turning began. You had to get what you wanted quick! It turned out to be a lot of fun and we had great conversation with our table throughout the breakfast. We really liked the fact that the innkeeper/owner (who is selling this B&B by the way) said a quick "blessing" before we began. You would need to be a Christian to appreciate that.

All in all I hope we get to stay here again. There wasn't much going on in Mountain View on this February weekend. No musicians were in the park. It would be a great place to stay and listen to them play when the weather turns warmer.

Room Tip: I don't think you could go wrong with any room here.

We came up for a class and stayed in the Garden Suite for a Friday and Saturday night in November. I grew up in a house about twenty years younger than this house - it felt a little like going back home for me!. From the many little touches to welcome you in the garden and on the porch to the warm and comfortable decor inside, everything about this place says relax - chill out and have a good time!
Every corner is spotlessly clean. Our room was on the ground floor (The Garden Suite) it was spacious and oh so comfortable. This suite actually has two private entrances - one off the front porch and one out the back by the parking area.
One seating at 8:30 for breakfast but it worked out good for my class - I could walk across the square and be there only a few minutes after 9:00. Breakfast was hearty to say the least! Country style bacon with fresh hot biscuits and gravy, eggs, fried potatoes and fresh fruit. One day we also had pancakes and the next day we had french toast. Beautiful table setting, served family style - great chance to visit and get to know a little about your fellow travelers.
All in all - loved my stay and hope to get back soon!

Room Tip: The Garden Suite would be good for a family or close friends to share.

We have stayed at the inn many times over the years. We always enjoy the delicious breakfast, the front porch rockers, and, most of all, the great people we meet. Mountain View is a beautiful retreat from the busy world. Love old time music and beautiful scenery.

This is a cosy litte place with a nice veranda. Good location. Close to the park where they are playing folkmusic every night. The service was perfect and the room was clean and tidy. The Inn has a personal touch and feels like home in a minute.

Good beakfast every day with one seating only - a good opportunity to get to know others. There is coffie and cake whenever you want and there are music instruments that you are welcome to play.

Mountain View is a must see in Arkansas and The Inn at Mountain View is the best place to stay.

The food was great and the beds were so comfortable. Everything was so beautiful and even though there were a lot of people staying that weekend, it was really very quiet. I never heard anyone else.
