When you’re planning a wedding, honeymoon, anniversary celebration, or a relaxing getaway in Eureka Springs, think of Victorian elegance and charm, relaxed and gracious hospitality, history, and -- most of all -- romance. Imagine all of these in the heart of Eureka Springs’ famed Historic District only a few minutes’ stroll from downtown shops, restaurants, galleries, and nightlife.
I went in June of 2013 and had a blast and I believe stayed two nights. I tripped and fell outside of an art gallery just two blocks away and skinned my knee and twisted both ankles pretty bad. The owner of the restaurant took me back to the Inn and Elise and Ray babied me. The service and the warmth of the owners and the place doesn't get much better than this. Very genuine people. Would stay there in a heartbeat again if they were open at the moment!

Thank you so much for the kind words! It's always a pleasure to do all we can to help our guests enjoy their stay. Please bear with us. We're making our way back from last September's fire and will be reopening later this year, all new and even better.
This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. Ray and Elise made it memorable. They were amazing hosts. The room was beautiful and just what my wife and I were needing. The breakfast was delicious and filling. Thank you to Ray and Elise for giving us a great weekend to get our minds off our daughter leaving for college. Would definitely return.
We stayed in Charlottes room to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We loved it, the room was spacious, big whirl pool tub, and a beautiful private porch just off the room that was so peaceful. Ray and Elise (owners) were so kind, friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wonderful with great conversation! Recommend this to anyone who wants a wonderful getaway. We will definitely be coming back.
Elise & Ray have owned this since 2001; they have preserved it well and the historical significance of the 1881 Crescent Cottage Inn. The First Governor of Arkansas had lived here in the 1880's! It was the First BnB in Eureka Springs! You have creaky old wood floors under the carpet to give it that special character; Loved their veranda overlooking the trees, with swinging porch swing! Fantastic breakfasts! Poached pear/ peach melba; interesting folks to visit with as well!
This charming home (now a B & B) was built in 1881 by a General after the Civil War that became one of the State's Governors. The couple owners will make you feel welcomed and at home. You'll never forget tasteful decor, the atmosphere, the owners charm and great breakfast, I would return just for the coffee alone!
