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
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.
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!
The kids had a great time outside and inside. They loved the climbing wall and hideaway in the extra bedroom and the tree house and the fire pit were a big hit! Very family friendly and close to the hiking trails (turtle rocks and rockhouse cave). The kitchen was fully stocked and everything was in good working order. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you!
This house is right on the border of the state park-Petit Jean....easy walk to a wonderful hike with beautiful vistas!
Enjoyed time at property. Great place to relax with friends and family. Peaceful. Walking distance to Petit Jean State Park. Lots of extras in the kitchen...well equipped. Would love to visit again.
We stayed in this very intersting home over thanksgiving 2016. We had an amazing time in this centrally located, yet secluded home. A great value!
We all had a great time here with well equipped kitchen and entertainment center for kids being the key highlights of this property!! Thank you for having us here !!!
Cabin was just as advertised. Just secluded enough to feel like a retreat, but WiFi and Direct TV was nice for watching the game on Saturday. Great location just 10-15 minutes from anything on the mountain. Only thing that keeps this from a full 5 stars would be the grills outside really need some work. They were in rough shape, but still usable if you're careful. Overall, it was a nice weekend and we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a place on the mountain.
