Lesmeister Guesthouse is designed for guests who are mostly self-sufficient. We do not have staff on-site most of the time. There is no check-in desk. We are not a hotel. We are not a bed and breakfast. Each apartment has a full kitchen. Each suite has a microwave oven, mini-refrigerator, coffee maker, and ice maker.
When you stay with us, you are mostly on your own. We will have your accommodations ready for you by check-in time. We will provide you with a personal 4-digit code you'll use at the door to gain admission to your suite. Come and go as you wish, day or night.
Make yourself at home! We'll give you a starter supply of things like coffee, soap, and toilet paper. If you run out of something, do what you'd do at home: go to a store and restock. Contact us if you really need us and we'll make every effort to help you out as soon as we can get there!
The Pocahontas National Commercial Historic District
Pocahontas is a real town, not just a suburb of some larger place. Our 18 block commercial historic district is the largest such district in Arkansas. Still mostly a “diamond in the rough”, buildings in this area retain most of their historic features, though some were covered by “modern” facades in the 1950’s and 60’s.
Our historic district is slowly but steadily being reborn as the wonderful place it was over 100 years ago, and Lesmeister Guesthouse is leading the way! The restoration of the building, removing modern additions and facades and restoring the historic appearance, has gone a long way in motivating local property owners to care for structures that have too-long been taken for granted here.
