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!

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.

Class and Elegance

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed with this one bedroom diamond. Enter the lovely french doors and step into a spacious living area that is comfortable and well decorated. The galley style kitchen offers all you need, with it's stainless appliances matching the classic checker board black and white tile and plenty of dishes, pots, glasses, etc. The bed, which sometimes can be difficult to sleep on when out of town, offers top linens and plush pillows for a great nights sleep. With just a short stroll down the hill to the main drag of downtown, you are close but out of the busyness. This place has all you need at a great price and Tiffani was great and easy to work with. Thanks,

Great home in great location

  • 5 of 5

This old home has been beautifully restored and is in a great location for sightseeing. It is in walking distance to the baths, hiking, and breweries. You don’t need to drive anywhere! It was very clean and well stocked with a comfortable bed. As an added bonus, there are growlers available for use at the local breweries. Finally, the communication with the homeowner was very easy and prompt. Don’t let the security deposit scare you, the owner had refunded it back to me within an hour of my checking out!
