You'll find him in the classroom or on the court, golfing or on the couch watching sports. Ask Ryan for advice about the local golf courses or the best places to watch games in town.

Why Michelle Malashock chose Bentonville

We fell in love with this house the moment we drove by and saw the FSBO sign. We weren't even looking to move! We saw the house that afternoon and had a signed contract within 48 hours.

We love that we can walk anywhere -- because Michelle bikes to work sometimes multiple days go by between car rides. We also love the community and our neighborhood. Every day we feel so lucky we found this place!

What makes this cottage unique

You'll love our shady lot and the privacy. Most people comment upon arriving that you wouldn't even know there was a guest house in the back. Also we are perfectly situated between downtown and the up-and-coming arts district. You can easily walk to more than a dozen restaurants, the art museum, a grocery store and the Walmart Home Office within 15 minutes. Sometime this summer/early fall, a six-screen cinema/bar will open just over two blocks from the house.

Wonderful Hosts and great location

  • 5 of 5

We went to Bentonville to see Crystal Bridges and eat at The Hive for my wife's birthday. Wonderful place to stay, even nicer than the pictures. Michelle and Ryan greeted us when we arrived, and gave us a tour. Location is wonderful, within walking distance of the square and Crystal Bridges. House was nicely decorated, kitchen was very well equipped, and everything was spotless! Two closets in the master bedroom! Yard is fenced and all ready for dogs. There is information in the rental for anything you might want to do--tour guides, maps, etc. Our hosts were super nice, especially since Michelle was due to deliver their first child in 12 days! We will definitely be back to stay and meet their newest family member!!

Top Notch Guest House

  • 5 of 5

This little guest house was perfect for our trip to bike the Bentonville area. It is close to town so we could walk to restaurants and bike to trails. The house is clean and modern and had every amenity. The hosts were very gracious. Thank you Michelle and Ryan!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We chose the green door for our little weekend getaway and we couldn’t be happier. Anything you need is within a few blocks. Our main goal was to enjoy great food and awesome mountain bike trails. We spent time both days enjoying all that slaughter pen had to offer and enjoyed food and multiple restaurants to match. Our culinary adventure started Friday night with a reservation in the wine vault at Fiamma where we enjoyed a five course Italian meal. Breakfast the next morning before heading back out to the trails was enjoyed at Table Mesa, one of our host’s favorite spots. Dinner night two was just as good as the night before at the hive enjoying meals by a James beard chef. The house was perfect. We have toyed with the thought of living in a tiny home and it was a great trial. The house felt large and was clean. Everything and detail was considered for their guests. If we could give ten stars we would. We will surly be back for the trails and food. The green door is a no brainer for our place to stay. Thank you!

I'd stay here again

  • 5 of 5

perfect location for a getaway with my bestie. Easy walk to wonderful restaurants and the fabulous Crystal Bridges museum (Chihuly in the Forest was terrific both at day and night!)

Hosts are lovely and most accommodating. Loved the Kuerig coffee! And the fluffy towels and robes were a nice surprise!
