Holiday Cookie Tour

November 20th, 2012

Hosted by the Bed and Breakfast Association of Eureka Springs

We are excited to announce our participation in the 6th annual bed and breakfast holiday cookie tour! As you well may know, bed and breakfasts like ours are renowned for delicious breakfast pastries. You know what’s easier to bake than a pastry? A cookie! Come with your sweet tooth and taste all the delights these fine Eureka Springs lodgings have to offer. Jan will be making Yuletide Cherry Cookies and Caramel filled Chocolate Cookie (nicknamed Milk Dud Cookie).

The Tour takes place on Saturday, December 8th from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The first time we held the tour, we received accolades from Taste of the South Magazine. Here is their take on our recipe for good holiday fun:

Eureka Springs Holiday Getaways

Don’t those ooey-gooey cookies look delicious?

“Take a quaint Victorian Town nestled in the Ozark Mountains of northwestern Arkansas. Add an association of bed-and-breakfast owners who love to decorate their inns for the Christmas season. Mix in a good measure of curiosity from out-of-town guests and local people alike. And garnish with an array of holiday treats and recipes to share.”

Nine Eureka Springs Inns will be participating. Tickets are $20 and include entry into a raffle for a $100 Gift Certificate!

This is a self-guided tour with maps of participating B&Bs included, so you can visit the inns at your leisure. All of the bed and breakfasts are on or close to one of the Eureka Springs trolley routes. Parking is limited so we urge you to let someone else take the wheel and enjoy the sights while you ride the trolley.

Holiday Tour Package

We want to help promote the tour by offering a getaway weekend deal at our Eureka Springs B&B. Come stay with us the weekend of the cookie tour and we will provide you with everything you need to enjoy the tour and Eureka Springs for the weekend. The special includes:

  • 2 tickets to the Sweet Treats tour
  • 2 one-day trolley tickets

Room packages start at $299; Suite packages start at $339. We hope to meet you and your sweet tooth real soon!

The Eureka Springs Bluegrass Festival celebrates the American roots musical tradition of Appalachia. This music of the Ozarks is a perfect blending of British Isles music with the rhythms of Africa and Jazz. Lively and soulful, Bluegrass will make you stomp your feet and get up to dance! You won’t want to miss this Eureka Springs music festival featuring live performances by some of the premier performers of this truly American music.

Some events require tickets while others are free and open to the public.

Friday ~ August 17, 2012: The festival opens with a free public concert and watermelon social in Eureka Springs’ Basin Park. Located at 12 Spring Street, the park is only a 10-minute walk from 5 Ojo B&B. Grass Crack, a Tulsa string band, and Hill Benders will be playing from about 3 to 5 p.m. Get your watermelon and meet old friends and new.

Saturday ~ August 18, 2012: The free music in the park continues from 1 to 7 p.m. with Deadman Flats, Spring Street, Buffalo City Ramblers and Grass Crack.

That evening, the Eureka Springs 2012 Bluegrass Festival headliners, Folk Soul Revival and Dread Clampitt, will be playing at The Auditorium. Both acts are considered rising stars of “NewGrass” music. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Conveniently, the Auditorium at 36 S. Main Street is only a 12-minute walk from our Eureka Springs inn! Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at TheAud.org.

Sunday ~ August 19, 2012 ~ 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.: The Bluegrass Festival in Eureka Springs closes with its traditional Gospel Show. Gather in Basin Park to hear joyous Gospel music by Glory Mountain and The Bushwackers.

We know there are a lot of our guests who are fans of this festival and there’s still time to book a room at our Eureka Springs B&B for the weekend of the Bluegrass Festival. You might see Richard downtown tapping his feet along to that special Bluegrass rhythm. Make your stay during the 2012 Bluegrass Festival extra special by choosing our luxurious lodging in Eureka Springs. After a full day of music and dancing, it’s always great to come home to a room with private baths and amenities such as spa tubs, free Wi-Fi, complimentary refreshments and private entrances. You’ll also love powering up for your day with our gourmet three-course breakfasts. Take a short walk to each concert through the beautiful streets of historic Eureka Springs. Or there’s a Eureka Springs trolley stop right by the inn.
