I teach at a private home in Gravette, Arkansas, which is in the extreme northwest corner of the state. Gravette has a population of 1800 persons, one decent restaurant (which varies in cuisine), and no accommodations. Consequently, those who come from out of town normally stay at the spacious home of Karen and Charlie. Karen fixes breakfast and lunch; we hold class downstairs overlooking a large and beautiful private lake; and we all go out for dinner in Gravette or in a neighboring town after class. We give Karen a donation for her hospitality.
Depending on the season, you may enjoy a walk around the private lake, sweating in the sauna, or splashing in the outdoor pool, so be sure to bring your bathing suit. Nearby rivers beckon for canoeing or tubing, and hiking is everywhere throughout the Ozarks.
Just because you travel does not mean that you are required to stay at the house. If you feel the need for more privacy you can certainly stay at a hotel in Siloam Springs or Bentonville and commute.
If you fly in, you’ll fly into XNA. Occasionally, someone can pick you up for a shuttle fee, unless you come in at some inconvenient hour. If you drive, you can call me for directions.
