Laughlin House

Welcome to the Laughlin House – a downtown Bentonville retreat! This estate was built c. 1895 by R. J. Laughlin, is located in the heart of downtown Bentonville, Arkansas, a thriving community in beautiful Northwest Arkansas.

Laughlin House has been referred to as the grandest specimen of the Eastlake Victorian style in Arkansas. Laughlin’s daughter, Phoebe (“Ebe”) Laughlin, ran a boarding house out of these walls for many years in the early 20th century, where she also served lunch to workers and patrons of the Bentonville Square. The house was later divided into apartments and fell into disrepair over the decades. In 1998 the house was lovingly restored into its present, elegant condition, and in 2010 was purchased by Don and Jenny Wallace, who set about transforming it into a charming inn full of character and personality.

Laughlin House features richly appointed rooms with a mixture of Victorian charm, stately elegance, contemporary comfort and a sprinkling of whimsy. With original caramel-hued pine and oak woodwork, pine and oak floors, stained and etched glass, beautiful beamed ceilings and stunning craftsmanship, every room in the house will captivate guests and embrace them with luxury and the comforts of home.
