The inn has 11 cozy private rooms upstairs which are furnished in antique décor. The rooms include one suite with its own private bathroom and a large second suite with a kitchenette. All rooms have shared access to 8 toilets (6 upstairs and 2 down) and 6 showers. Downstairs is a dining hall, kitchen, mercantile store, convention hall with stage, outdoor patio, stream with two bridges, and outdoor patios. The dining hall is where guests and the public will have shared access to eat. The mercantile styled apothecary shop is where you’ll find Beard and Lady goods, our own line of apothecary-inspired personal care and grooming products, as well as handmade products made by local artisans. The convention hall can be rented for events and live music. The inn is famous among locals, travelers, and Hollywood directors for its supernatural past, endurance through disaster, and history of American railroad grit.

Nestled in the Ozark Mountains in the center of Chester, Arkansas: a small town of approximately 150 people set along the A&M railroad, our inn is the antidote for the status quo. The Beard and Lady Inn is surrounded by the Ozark National Forest where nature enthusiasts can summit the highest peaks in the Ozark Mountains. With over 1.2 million acres to explore, hikers, bikers, canoers, hunters, UTV riders, and campers have access to endless excursions. Chester began as a timber town on Frisco, the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway. What followed was an unpredictable story of growth, fire, floods, and redemption.

Our inn offers space for contemplation, curiosity, and memory making. There are no screens, but you can stay and read a book, ride a train, walk the creek across the street, play a game, have a mountain bike or side by side adventure and send a postcard in our small post-office. We are within walking distance to Clear creek, the Chester Country Cafe, and 6 miles from the Buckhorn OHV Trail system for amazing side by side riding. We are minutes from Lake Fort Smith (hiking, biking, canoeing, fishing), 30 min to Fayetteville and Fort Smith, and 7 minutes into Mountainburg. Try quail, chukar, and pheasant hunting at Quail Mountain Hunting Preserve on the adjacent mountain.

Is it haunted?

"Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered. And lo, no one was there." This quote was carved into a mantle of another historic Inn. I first read it the night that my husband proposed to me. I have learned and lived by this. When fear creeps up and knocks I muster all my courage, sometimes I really am still really scared however I have found that when I simply open the door by faith darkness and fear are dispelled. This has taught me so many lessons but one big one is that we are haunted by many things all kinds of things. We are terrified of what someone may say about us on the internet, the opinions of our neighbors, taking in the stranger, we worry about our children or evening having children, and then we worry about growing old and our children growing older- the list goes on. These fears are not a physical monster on the other side of the wall or walking down the hall, but they are ideas that we let hide in our minds that we allow to keep us keep us scared. Here at the Beard and Lady we have decorated our rooms inspired by fears we have faced or are overcoming. We ask each guest to join us bravely. One of the ways I have faced my own fear is simply by saying it out loud, writing it down or even confessing to a friend. While you stay, we ask that depending on your room you would dive into the full experience with us. Each room will have a writing prompt and stamps. Please be prepared for our ask of sending a letter or post card. Sounds scary right? Are you ready to be totally freaked out?....... Leave your phone at the door and face your inner fears.
