Beaver Lake is a must-see for anyone traveling in the Eureka Springs area. With almost 500 miles of shoreline & rising limestone bluffs, Beaver Lake provides a wide variety of activities, including lake excursions, a marina & fishing.

Upcoming Events at Beaver Lake

The Lake is not only for fishing! See some of these other upcoming events for fall activities by the lake.

Eagle Watching

The Eagle Watch special event will take place October 19-21, although you can observe wintering bald eagles over the lake through January or February. Expert guides help visitors spot eagles and happily share their knowledge of the bald eagle’s lifestyle and habitat. The tour takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and are daily (closed Thursday) at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $22 for adults; $8.50 for children under 12.

Arkansas Fall Foliage on the Belle of the Ozarks

The same boat taking guests out for the Eagle watching also holds cruises throughout the week. This is a wonderful time to observe Arkansas fall foliage. Take a cruise on the Belle of the Ozarks, a large, open-platform style boat. The Belle of the Ozarks has navigated the lake for 18 years and the staff will keep you entertained talking about the local history. Just in case, take a sweater for the cool fall weather and sit on the open air deck enjoying the scenery and fall colors. There is a small snack bar on board with chips and soft drinks, etc. If you enjoy a quiet, slow ride on a lake and the weather is good, you should consider this on your next trip to Eureka Springs!

Plan Your Ozarks Fall Foliage Vacation at our Eureka Springs B&B

Fall Colors in the Ozarks Arkansas

Cooler weather and autumn colors in Eureka Springs make October a lovely time to get away to our Ozarks bed and breakfast inn.

It’s early September and you can feel the very beginnings of fall coming to the Ozarks. It’s hard to believe since it’s been so hot lately. But the shift to autumn is inevitable…it’s coming and it’s going to be beautiful. Autumn in Eureka Springs brings welcome cooler weather and stunning fall display.

Usually the last couple weeks of October are the height of Eureka Springs’ fall color, but it might be a little earlier this year because of this summer’s unusually hot weather. For updates on Arkansas’ autumn color season, visit the Arkansas State website or you can contact us to see how things are looking here in Eureka Springs.

It’s worth a drive here once fall starts in earnest. The drive on Arkansas Highway 21 to Eureka Springs will pass through hills of glorious gold, green, yellow, orange and red. Every year, people come here to see it. It just takes your breathe away…such moments are just the thing a person needs for a fresh start to a new season!

The woods at our Eureka Springs inn will also be adorned with fall color. Inside and out, our Ozarks accommodations will be ready to help you enjoy the beauty of autumn. All our luxuriously appointed rooms have private baths with spa tubs for two as well as gas or electric fireplaces. Most have private entrances and private decks or porches so you can go out to enjoy the view and the refreshing air of fall. Little touches such as in-room treats and plush bath robes make you feel pampered. And the gourmet three-course breakfast is a perfect way to start each morning.

The town of Eureka Springs is particularly beautiful this time of year. Shop, dine and enjoy its fine cultural experiences, all with a backdrop of glorious autumn color. You’ll love taking a fall vacation in the Ozarks. Come to our lovely Eureka Springs bed and breakfast and see for yourself!

Eureka Springs Halloween Event

October 5th, 2010

We really enjoy Halloween here in Eureka Springs, AR because every year we get from 400 to 500 kids at our bed and breakfast, most of whom are dressed up in costumes. A good share of the parents also join in with their kids by dressing up.

Another fun event is the Mad Hatter’s Ball, a lavish costumed affair and fundraiser for the Eureka Springs School of the Arts (ESSA). The event includes live and silent auctions, music and dancing, a hat contest, and live music by Red Ambition. This ball is in true “Eureka style” – party-goers will dazzle each other with creative hats, while many go further, sporting full costume. Awards will be given for “Best Hat”, & for the “People’s Choice”.

Some of the hats you see at the ball are so unique it makes you shake your head and say, “Wow, who would have thought you could make a hat out of that?”

Hours are 6:30 to 11 p.m. Tickets are $50, including an Italian pasta buffet, and available by calling ESSA at 479-253-5384. ESSA is a non-profit school providing adults and youth classes in arts and crafts throughout the year for emerging and professional artists. Award-winning, noted artists and craftspeople teach classes at the school’s campus.

So, I end with what the King of Hearts says in Alice in Wonderland, “Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end, then stop.” Eureka Springs is the end.

Fall Colors around Eureka Springs, AR

September 26th, 2010

It was in the low 50s when I got up this morning and felt so good. Walking to work (ok, it’s only 30 feet to the kitchen but I call in walking so I can declare it as exercise), anyway, I looked up and knew that the trees were thinking, hummmmm, is it time to start displaying some bold fall colors? We sure hope so. Arkansas Highway 21 on the way to Eureka SpringsThe image to the left is on Arkansas Highway 21 on the way to Eureka Springs. It’s typical of fall views throughout the Ozarks and around the town.

We won’t be able to predict when the peak is until the leaves do begin changing color. But, change they will, and driving up to Eureka Springs on the Ozark mountain roads provides some spectacular views. Checkout this web page on the Arkansas State website. They will update it weekly with information on the latest on fall colors around the state.

Can’t wait to sit out on one of the porches at the bed and breakfast with a hot cup of coffee, gazing up at the trees at the art that nature creates around here. Come share it with us!!
