Arthur Frommer’s Budget Travel has named Eureka Springs number 4 in the 10 Coolest Small Towns in America 2011. We’re delighted. We’ve long known that Eureka Springs is special, and it’s reaffirming to learn that travel specialists think so, too.
Travelers unfamiliar with Arkansas are often surprised by the bucolic beauty of the state. We have rolling hills, waterfalls, and large, meandering rivers. Outdoor recreation is popular because nature beckons. Eureka Springs is surrounded by both large and small lakes, many of which are tucked away in the Ozarks. To look out over the land is to see lush, green trees – except in the fall, of course, when the forests are bursting with color.
Eureka Springs itself feels like a European town. It’s built into a hill, and winding streets like the one leading to our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast invite exploration. The wealth of historic architecture heightens the sensation that the town is from a different time and place. In many respects, it doesn’t feel like America in the 21st century here.
Some folks call Eureka Springs the honeymoon capital of the Ozarks. It is certainly known for being romantic, and it is. We host many weddings, elopements, and honeymoons at our Bed and Breakfast Eureka Springs. Couples stay with us to celebrate their anniversaries and birthdays, or just to get away from their harried hectic lives. It’s easy to feel the spark of romance in a place as charming and quaint as Eureka Springs.
There’s a good chance you’ll fall in love while you stay at our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast. Many of our guests fall in love with Eureka Springs.
