We just returned from a 4-day weekend in northwest Arkansas, which was also our first Airbnb experience.  Our home away from home was a modern cabin on Beaver Lake located near Rogers, Arkansas.

So first let me say this….even Chip & Joanna Gaines would have been impressed with our mountain cabin.  With its rustic modern charm, it was the perfect setting for soaking up some peace and quiet and a beautiful view.  Our favorite cabin feature was the roll up garage door that opened on to a wrap-around porch. Such a fun way to enjoy indoor and outdoor living to the max.  

So what would Holley suggest you wear on a weekend mountain vacation?  Absolutely anything you want to! Though I do have a few stylish suggestions.  First let’s talk about loungewear. A pair of Donna Karan’s lounge/pajama pants from Dilliard’s are ultra-soft.  I wore mine with a soft gray cardigan from Target. Another option is a plush cardi from Soft Surroundings….the perfect dose of coziness.

Here’s a sample of how we spent time at our cozy cabin:  sleep…hike…drink coffee…eat…read…drink wine (in no particular order)!  Sweat pants are perfect for this scenario….layered with a hoodie or cardigan over a long sleeved t-shirt.  How relaxing does that sound? A QVC Pinterest look I’m smitten with features grey sweats layered with a cozy cardigan.  For house slippers, Birkenstocks shearling lined slippers are perfect for an indoor/outdoor retreat.


For a morning hike, I suggest leggings, sneakers, and an army green cargo jacket.  My hiking go-to is a Longchamp backpack I purchased several years ago at the Little Bird consignment in Aspen, Colorado.  Another way to find gently used ones is on Ebay and Poshmark…a staple that never goes out of style! And I’m loving Roolee’s selection of backpacks…be sure to take a look at our Pinterest selection!    

To complete a mountain retreat look, a plaid shirt goes with everything….from jeans and boots to leggings and sweats.  Our Pinterest board features a great selection of plaid shirts, vests, and cardigans from Walmart. BTW…I think everyone needs to add something plaid to their fall wardrobe.  Don’t you agree? 

Be sure to take a look at the Pinterest photos of our Airbnb mountain cabin.  Because I’m pretty sure you will want to book with them right away!!! And stay tuned for the rest of our mountain weekend adventure in Bentonville, Rogers, and Eureka Springs….coming soon to a blog near you! @homewithatwist.com
