Barn Tour Guide: Where To Stay

Earlier this week, we shared some of our must-visit places in Dardanelle and the surrounding towns. We also wanted to share some of our picks for places to stay! Our area offers a big variety of options for guests on any budget, including hotels, cabins, Airbnbs, and campsitesall within a 30 minute drive of The Barn. 

Barn Brides, be sure to share this link with your out-of-town guests or include it on your wedding website! 


Holiday Inn Express . My personal favorite local hotel!

Holiday Inn Express. My personal favorite local hotel!

There are no hotels located in Dardanelle, but there are several great options located about 30 minutes from The Barn in Russellville. Our picks: Holiday Inn Express, La Quinta, Hampton Inn, Comfort Inn & Suites, Fairfield Inn, Days Inn

Lake Point Conference Center isn't a typical hotel, but it's located right on the lake and it's an excellent option with a friendly, hospitable staff. It's great for large groups wanting to stay together, and we refer many of our couples, their families and bridal parties to Lake Point when they ask us for a recommendation. There are two lodges, each with several guest rooms, a kitchenette, and a large gathering area. Plus, gorgeous lake views! 

Cabin Rentals & Camping

With three beautiful state parks nearby, there are plenty of cabin rentals and campsites available for guests who want to turn their trip into a mountain or lake getaway. Several of the cabins are larger, which would be ideal for bridal parties or families. 

Mount Nebo has many cabin rentals and camping options. The park owned cabins are always a hit, and the views they offer are unforgettable... There are rustic cabins, A-frames and an adorable, newly renovated tiny house (that's my pick!). There are also a few privately owned cabins that are excellent options, too. My personal favorite: Taylor's Cabin. There are several RV and tent campsites near the park's swimming pool, restrooms (with showers!), and pavilion, as well as hike-in options. 

Petit Jean is home to Mather Lodge, tons of cabins, and both RV and tent campsites. If you want a more unique experience, they even have yurt rentals! 

Lake Dardanelle State Park has several RV and tent campsites, as well. 


Russellville has a few great Airbnb rentals, for guests who want all the comforts of home. My faves: A charming tiny house. A cozy guesthouse on the edge of a cliff with a gorgeous view. A beautifully decorated home with lots of room to play and a pool. A historical home that offers plenty of room for families or larger groups.

There are SO many great places to stay in our area, and we hope you and your guests find the perfect place to relax while you're in town!
