Explore War Eagle Cavern, Cosmic Cavern & Onyx Cave

February 12th, 2018

Come explore Arkansas caves near Eureka Springs - War Eagle Cavern, Cosmic Cavern, and Onyx CaveArkansas’ unique geology has it riddled with fascinating and historic caves and caverns. In fact, there are three caves within 30 minutes or less of our Eureka Springs B&B: War Eagle Cavern, Cosmic Cavern, and Onyx Cave!

Arkansas’ many caves and caverns were formed when ancient sea beds solidified into limestone and calcite. These deposits were then shaped over the millennia by the constant drip and flow of water. The caverns and their delicate stalactites, stalagmites, and other ormations are the result of this process. Some caves, known as “living caves,” are still wet and in the process of being formed.

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge

August 16th, 2014

Turpentine Creek Wildlife RefugeTurpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is the largest big cat sanctuary in the United States with over 130 beautiful animals on over 450 acres in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

How and why people and companies find themselves in possession of lions, tigers, cougars, cheetahs, or other big cats is another story but the fact of the matter is, more often than not, these animals prove to be more of a challenge than the owner had expected and, soon enough, they find themselves in need of a home for their erstwhile pet or mascot.
