Element Hotel

I am blessed to have friends are local 'hoteliers" in NW Arkansas and I've learned a lot about the hotel industry over the years. I'm amazed at the number of hotels in the area, but given the year round activities and corporations in the area, I'm not surprised.

One of the newer hotels in the area is the Element in Bentonville, located behind Cracker Barrel on Moberly Lane. This hotel has the same owner as the new Fairfield in Fayetteville. It has a fresh, clean open feel complete with large workout facility, free loaner bikes to residents and the rooms have compete mini kitchenettes.

Despite the many hotels in the area, especially Rogers/Bentonville, there are new ones being built as this is written. We are fortunate to have so many to choose from.

Grand Village

"Grand Living, Grand Life" is the slogan of Grand Village at Clear Creek, Grand Retirement in Fayetteville. This beautiful facility recently opened and it truly lives up to the slogan. Bill Seeger is the one who came up with this idea a few years ago and got the ball rolling with his son Sam. In talking with him, his intent was for you to see the 'Grand Life' when you walked in and saw the luxurious spaces, then upon moving in, you have a 'Grand Life' enjoying the facilities but mostly the new family of the other residences.

This first half of construction features the main facility with a wide range of amenities including large theatre, formal dining, cafe', library, drug store, conference room, outdoor kitchen and pool house. The next half of the property will feature more independent living cottages & villas, but still full use of the main building's features to keep that community feel and closeness.

It was my vision to capture this luxury with the key elements being the exterior, entrance and dining room, there are many other areas that greatly enhance the experience as well.
