April 17th, 2020

Blue Spring pool at Blue Spring Heritage CenterBeautifully landscaped Blue Spring Heritage Center, home to one of the area’s last uncapped springs, offers a fantastic combination of geology, history, and natural beauty.

Though Blue Spring has seen different uses and been landscaped over the years, the special area retains its beauty. The natural spring produces 38 million gallons of fresh, clear, 54-degree water every day. This water fills a deep, round pool encircled with flowers before spilling over into a trout-filled lagoon, then over a small dam and down to the White River.

Explore Onyx Cave – Arkansas’ Oldest Show Cave

February 7th, 2020

Onyx Cave in Eureka Springs ArkansasArkansas is riddled with fascinating caves you can visit and tour. Did you know that Arkansas’ oldest show cave, Onyx Cave, is barely 15 minutes away from 5 Ojo, our Eureka Springs inn? It’s true!

Onyx Cave first opened to the public in 1893, just a couple of years after its discovery. The cave is filled with fascinating shapes: stalagmites, stalactites, and weird formations of flowstone. In fact, that’s where the cave got its name.

Flowstone is a smooth, sheet-like deposit of minerals that forms in a limestone cave, over thousands of years due to flowing water. Flowstone was once commonly referred to as “cave onyx,” and at least four states are home to one or more caves with “onyx” in their names.

Come Celebrate Eureka Springs Mardi Gras 2020!

January 10th, 2020

Eureka Springs Mardi Gras 2020Fairytales, Fables, and Folklore are the theme for Eureka Springs Mardi Gras 2020! Eureka Gras sees a cornucopia of events, including parades, parties, masked balls, and other events on now through the last week of February.

If you think New Orleans has the American lock on Mardi Gras, think again. While N’awlins and places like Mobile, AL get most of the press, Mardi Gras is celebrated all over the country, to some degree or another. Perhaps nowhere with as much joy and enthusiasm as right here in Eureka Springs, AR.

We take Mardi Gras seriously, here in Eureka Springs, with our own Royal Court, and Krewe of Krazo (Krazo is Ozark backwards). Eureka Gras includes more than a month of activities, including two parades, numerous parties and formal balls, and lots of 2nd line bands.

September 2nd, 2012

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!
