As we head upstairs inside the house at Moss Mountain, notice the pictures on almost every wall.
Lovely staircase that almost makes me want one, except that I’d have put these poor old knees through torture every day.
At the top of the stairs is a collection of Native American pictures.
Off the main hallway is a guest powder room.
A guest bedroom has two twin beds: one on either side of a medal trunk used as a table.
In the hallway landing is a mini study with book shelves and eclectic items. If there had been more time, I could have stood in this area and read book titles and studied pictures for hours.
An interesting greeter.
Not sure what this light fixture was originally or what object it is supposed to look like.
Allen likes his books. As do I.
The master bedroom is spacious.
A desk in the corner with more pictures.
Still in the master bedroom.
And an en suite bath.
At the back of the house is a screen porch with beds for guests.
And, of course, a wonderful view.
At one end of the room is a metal tub. Not sure if it is actually functional or decorative. There are towels hanging on a small ladder to the left.
This casual living area is on the third floor.
Where there is a large bedroom with four beds for Allen’s nieces and nephews.
Cute. It seems he enjoys whimsy.
I like the beaded boards on the walls and ceilings everywhere on the third floor.
Another view of the Arkansas River.
As we head down the stairs, more pictures and busts of American founding fathers or composers?
That concludes the tour of the house.
