Hi,
I think that 'Arsenic and old lace' is a best place to stay in Eureka Springs.

The Tree House Cottages are great. They are usually booked up several months in advnace, but they are treehouses built in the woods but are still convenient to everything. Check out the webstie at treehousecottages.com

Travel Tips for Eureka Springs

Quigley Mansion

by shdw100

This house is quite unique. One day in 1943, Mrs. Quigley decided that after her husband left for work, that she and her children would tear down their existing home. Mr. and Mrs. Quigley had been having "discussions" about building a newer home, but Mr. Quigley wanted to wait until after the war was over so he could purchase the 43 picture glass windows for the home. Mrs. Quigley could wait no longer, so she tore it down and moved everyone to the chicken shed for the time being. Then began the construction on this rather unique home. The entire outside is made from small stones that Mrs. Quigley had collected from her childhood. The first 2 feet inside the home, and all around the outside wall of the home, are plants and trees. She wanted to bring the "outside into the home" and she did just that. There are also numerous rock gardens and sculptures that she made. The cost is $5.50 for adults, children 14 and under free.

High Sytle Eating at Cresent

by BruceDunning about Cresent Dining Room and lounge

We did not eat here, but will provide a viewpoint of the lunch menu items. They had around 12 main featured items for the day and all were $10-11. The basic menu has soup $4, burger $10, beef sandwich $8, and it goes on. The wraps and sandwiches on special all sounded very good. Some patrons told us the food was good, and had some to take home.
Fine dining dinners are ranging from $15-40 generally plus salads for $6-8, and soup $6-8. Will let you know sometime

Christ of the Ozarks

by deecat

Please Click Picture to see Statue more clearly and be sure to look at second photo of statue up close

We first saw Christ of the Ozarks when we took the tram tour and were standing on the balcony of The Crescent Hotel and Spa. That makes one want to see it up close.

Our guide told us that it is one of the most visited attractions in the Ozarks. It's located on the grounds of The Great Passion Play complex, and it overlooks the village of Eureka Springs.

It really is massive [it stands 7-stories high!]. It was completed and dedicated in 1966. It was sculpted by the late Emmet Sullivan who was one of the artisans who sculpted Mount Rushmore.

We were told that there are no poured segments; every inch of the sculpture was built by hand. The foundation is welded into the rock of the mountain and required 340 tons of concrete interlaced with steel.

During construction, they had to completely surround it with scaffolding, and the workers built an elevator up the side of the framework so they could reach the higher segments.

The statue is made of 24 layers of white mortar on a steel frame; it weighs over two million pounds!

The statue's hands [from wrist to fingertip] measures approximately 7 feet, and the arm spread spans 65 feet

You'll be glad to hear that the Christ of the Ozarks is open to the public 24 hours each day of the year, and it is FREE.

Note that autos are limited to a parking area several yards from the grounds so you have to use a gently sloping paved walkway to get close to it.

As you can see from the 2nd photo, it is difficult to capture the entire statue up close unless you have a very complicated and expensive camera.

A Great Place To Get Away & Unwind

by RoscoeGregg

"What tourism was like in 1900"

This little town is like the land that time forgot. The developable land is limited by the topography and was fully developed before big chain hotels. It has always been a tourist economy so it works as a good getaway. It is not a town trying to remake itself but a town that is just what it is. “A place to relax”.

The streets follow the contours of the canyon and are wonderfully unstraight. This makes it feel bigger than it is. It is great for people watching. The local folks blend with the tourists for a great variety.

There are trails through the woods that lead to the top of the surrounding bluffs. The streets are like an Escher drawing. It is great fun to take the stair cases between the levels of the town. It is mall so getting lost is not an issue so do not miss the corners and side streets.

Try to get out early as the town is waking up. The street is uncrowded and cool. The people that live here are very friendly and interesting and this is a great time to see them out getting the day started.

"Lots of Local Art & Quality Craft"

There has been a thriving art community here for decades. Much of the local artists work is available in the many shops. You will find anything from a small handmade bowl to large art pieces.

I will be honest I am not much for shopping but I find many interesting things to look at. I always leave here with some great new ideas.

There is also a thriving music community in Eureka. On most weeks there are lots of places to catch an act or two. Some is excellent.

There are some artists studios located just down valley from town. So do not stop at the apparent end of town at the bottom.

"Great Food And Accommodation"

If you like old hotels and good food this is also a great place for you. The town is just jammed with very nice bed and breakfasts. If that path is your cup of tea.

The restaurants are varied and some are very good. You can have a great dining experience here morning noon and night. So plan to get away for a few days with your sweetie and really unwind in Eureka Springs.

A good tip is to remember that this has always been a tourist town. This is why the shops and restaurants tend to be closed on mid-week days instead of the weekends. So plan accordingly.
