I wear two hats with different names: Madison Woods when I’m wearing the artist hat, Roxann Riedel in real life and real estate. I'm a rock-smashing paint-making artist & a sales agent for Montgomery Whiteley Realty. Hailing from the wild Ozarks in Kingston, Arkansas where my husband and I work toward a sustainable lifestyle.

Lodging near Kingston, Arkansas

As I find out about cabin rentals, B & B’s, and other lodging near Kingston, Arkansas, I’ll add them to the list below. If you own properties you’d like me to list, please send details to madison@wildozark.com.

Almost everywhere from the town of Kingston is 30 or more minutes. From Kingston, add another 30 minutes to get to Wild Ozark if you’re going to take it easy on the 6 miles of dirt road to reach our gate.

On this page I’ve gathered contact information about some of the lodging options nearby (relatively speaking). If you stay at one of these locations, or have other lodgings to mention, leave a comment with your review so others can benefit – and thanks in advance!

And, please leave a guestbook entry or review at the location to let the owners know that you found it here first 😀 That’s the only way I’ll know if my lodging pages are working to bring them business.

Here’s a page with a little more information about Kingston and what to expect from our quaint little town.

Kingston Lodging

Now there are a few places to stay right here in the actual town area of Kingston. There might be more I don’t know about, so if you know of some, let me know and I’ll add them to this list.

  • Hill Song Cottage – a cozy cabin on the hill overlooking the quaint ‘uptown’ of Kingston. Book through Airbnb from their FB page.
  • Tiny Kingston House – a cozier little stay for two just off of the square in Kingston, AR. The listing says ‘Huntsville’, but it’s actually in Kingston.
  • Cane Hill Cabins – A suite that sleeps 3.  In the near future they will also have a three bedroom, three bath log cabin on the same property.
  • Mountain Valley Ranch – Respite, rejuvenation, restoration are offered here. Located 6 miles on Hwy 21 north of Kingston, between Kingston and Hwy 412.

Out-back in the Ozarks

Amenities in the town itself are limited, but include a gas station/convenience store, a post office, one antique store that stays closed most of the time at the moment, a realty and feed store (Ranch One), a bank, and Lisa Davis’ street market at the old Cobb’s store. So, not much here in the way of shopping, but we’re overflowing with beautiful scenery 🙂
