About Tiffani Larsen

I was born and raised here in Hot Springs. I have had a love for very old homes since I was a teenager. I Fell in love with the little home the first day I saw it. The old home needed ALOT of TLC! I wanted the challenge, and I wanted to share it with others. I was sure I wanted to keep

as much originality and character as possible. The house has a quirky, fun vibe and that’s exactly what I was going for. The renovations lasted about a year. I am looking forward to sharing this funky old house with many! I hope to purchase another old cottage in Eureka Springs in the next couple years.

Tiffani Larsen purchased this house in 2015

Why Tiffani Larsen chose Hot Springs

The Bankston House sets itself apart all on its own. The house was built in 1890 as servant quarters for the mansion next door. That house was destroyed by fire in the 1940s, and they rebuilt the red brick to the right. The mansion across the street, was Al Capone’s tailors home, later it served as a kindergarten. Today, it is a bed and breakfast. The location puts you exactly where you need to be downtown, walking anywhere! Downtown Hot Springs has had over 20 new businesses open last summer and more are expected in January 2018! New breweries, restaurants, boutiques, wineries, coffee shops, bakeries, escape rooms, dinner and magic shows, so much to do! If you want to stay in, enjoy the back patio and grill! We are dog lovers and know they are family, so bring your pet with! So many things to love about this old home!

What makes this house unique

We want our guests to feel completely at home while staying here. We have provided 3 growlers to take to the local breweries, so guests don’t have to buy them. Take them, fill them, enjoy great local beer, then simply rinse them out and leave on counter! A large assortment of toiletries in case you forgot something! Tons of brochures to look through with information on all of Hot Springs and what to do. We also left some really cool family things in the house , we wanted to share. On the bedroom wall, my great great grandparents marriage license hangs, from 1895. A beautiful old grandfather clock in the living area, was my fathers. The house also has art from local artists throughout for guests to enjoy. The Bankston House is truly one of a kind, come and see for yourself!

beautiful home with charming details + easy walk to all the fun

  • 5 of 5

Tiffani was delightful to work with - she checked in via text to make sure we had everything we needed and gave advice when asked. Lock box was so easy to use, home is incredibly beautiful and so well decorated, the kitchen is adorable and high quality with modern finishes, and the location is just a short walk from everything downtown plus also the beautiful western mountain trail. The high ceilings are nice because they make the place feel bigger than it is. Tiffani is in the midst of soon renovating the bathroom - it's currently adorable and full-functioning, but heads up (pun intended) that the vintage shower head placement is a quite short if you are tall, so be prepared to take your showers squatting. We didn't care at all - even with a short shower we doubt there is a better place in Hot Springs! Also - if you like soft pillows, bring your own as hers were quite firm (in general I try and BYOP whenever travelling, since pillows are a pretty personal preference item, so again, no hard feelings for this lovely home!)

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a gem! The house is adorable and so clean and beautifully decorated. It was perfect for the long weekend as my husband and I wanted to explore historic Hot Springs. I slept the best I have all year here...comfortable bed and linens and so, so quiet. We could walk downtown and not have to mess with parking which was a plus for us. And we could drive to the lake in a few short minutes, which was also nice. Overall, such a perfect spot for our getaway. Tiffani is wonderful to work save yourself the time looking elsewhere-- this is the best spot if you are wanting to be close to the historic downtown. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The Charmer was delightful! It is very cute and well decorated. (Looks like a Pinterest dream!) Every thing you need is available. It is in an historic neighborhood of stately old homes. All the appliances are high end as well as kitchen supplies and art.

When we are in Arkansas we will definately stay here again.

Thank you Tiffani for sharing your home with us.

Communication is fast and personal. Keyless entry is easy and secure.
