DESCRIPTION OF TOP O' THE MOUNTAIN
This gorgeous, peaceful and convenient two-bedroom home was designed for solar access and views over the mountains by my artist mother in law and built by my husband.
Several of the highest peaks in the State of Arkansas--Poteau Mountain, Mount Magazine, and White Oak Mountain--are visible on a clear day from this celestial, healing retreat. Night-sky viewing and bird-watching are great!
Furnishings are mainly old family antiques in this spacious, ultra-private, 2-story rustic passive solar home with glorious views of the Boston Mountains/Ozarks. The house is characterized inside as arts and crafts rustic. Tile floors are downstairs are colorful tile and the upper living are in pine tongue and groove with signs of family wear. The Jacuzzi tub is located in the Greenhouse which is filled with tropical plants and the occasional skink or treefrog. All but the greenhouse is heated, airconditioned, filtered, and dehumidified. We do keep some family books, games, etc which are fine for visitors to use. The house reflects the artist designers appreciation of earth colors and arts and crafts orientation.

Top o’ the Mountain is the domain of whitetail deer, hawks, owls, other diverse bird life and small mammals. No farm stock is present to disturb the peaceful tranquility of this artist- and landscape architect-designed retreat, snuggled at the end of a 1,000-foot forested, well-graveled private lane. The home is ideally located equidistant from two popular state parks, Devil’s Den State Park and Lake Fort Smith State Park, each of which have resident park rangers, visitors’ centers, hiking, swimming, and interpretive programs.
Visitors should be aware that the fields and forests of NW Arkansas, like most of forested America, are tick and insect habitat and can be uncomfortable for people with allergies during certain seasons. Preventive precautions should be taken with clothing and insect repellents. Please understand we cannot be held responsible for a person's allergies or insect bites anywhere on the property. Snakes persist throughout the Ozarks but no poisonous snakes have ever been sited at the house since it was built.
Located just outside the historic resort village of Winslow, Arkansas, Top o’ the Mountain is just uphill one mile from the Winslow U.S. Post Office, a seasonal Saturday morning farmers’ market, tourist train stop, city museum, the village park, and a nearby gas station/grocery. The owner's grandfather purchased and named Top o' the Mountain in the mid-1920s, putting the TOM label on early farm products from eggs and canned produce to nursery stock. Headwaters of the West Fork of the White River originate at the unique downtown Winslow railroad tunnel, still in use and dating from the late 1800's. It is the only RR tunnel in the state of Arkansas and is within 1/2 mile of Top o' the Mountain. The house and lawn are totally secluded in the woods so be prepared for forest isolation, wildlife, and privacy.
Top o' the Mountain Ozarks Dream (entire house) is located on a private, historic family farm on 85 acres tucked into the awesome beauty of the Boston Mtns range of the Ozarks Uplift of the Interior Highlands of America. 2200' above sea, great wildlife and cool, dark night skies. Year-round 5 to 10 degrees cooler than Fayetteville, Arkansas, 24 miles away.
The remnant village of Winslow harks back to the passenger railroad days when three hotels hosted guests escaping the midsummer heat of the river valleys. A small museum is located in the historic stone building with Winslow City Hall across from where the seasonal tourist train stops between Van Buren and Fayetteville.
