Historical Traveler Reviews Arsenic And Old Lace Bed & Breakfast Inn Eureka Springs
Best B&B in Eureka!
My husband and I recently visited the Arsenic and Old Lace B&B for the first time. It was our first trip to Eureka and I must say we were blessed with finding what we feel is the "BEST" B&B in Eureka. The owners, Doug & Beverly, were very warm and hospitable and saw to your every need. The B&B is just the right size with 5 rooms, each having their own special charm. It is a beautiful victorian style home with a wrap-around porch where you can sit and enjoy your evening or morning coffee. It is located on the hillside within walking distance from the trolley and minutes from the main town where many of the shops and restaurants are located. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this "special find".

What a location for a get-away!
My wife, Peggy, had never been to a bed and breakfast inn before and was really looking forward to our visit to this place. I had spent a night in one once during a bus tour with a church group a few years ago.
We were both pleasantly surprised at the accomodations at this particular location. Though the facility looked very old, we learned it was only built in 1991. Whoever the designer was, definitely knew what folks look for in a bed and breakfast! We spent two wonderful nights in the Tree Top Suite during the latter part of October and although most of the trees had already dropped their leaves, the ones remaining were spectacular! Leaves covering the ground covered flaws in the landscape like snow during the winter season covers many flaws. It had rained for several days prior to our visit and rained during our first evening but since we did not leave our room during that period, it just added to the romantic flavor of the surroundings. Our hosts made us feel very special and fed us two of the most unusual and succulent breakfasts anyone could ask for. I believe we have found a "home away from home" at Arsenic and Old Lace and will definitely return.
Beautiful view and peaceful surroundings.
Excellent host and beautiful view from our balcony. The statue of Christ with out-stretched arms was just across the valley. The room was very nice and very well maintained. My wife and I are 65 years old and we felt that our stay was very romantic. You can be sure we will be there again next year. I am sure all of the rooms are excellent but we now have unforgettable memories of our stay and will be requesting the same room.
Greg and I were married @ Judge Roy Beans on 9/16/04 @ 3:30 pm soooo much fun. We stayed @ Arsenic & Old Lace B&B in Eureka Springs on our wedding day and honeymoon. Our hosts Doug and Beverly were so friendly, they made us feel at home. The breakfast was excellent, we had snacks all day and night (just like home). We woke up well rested, hearing nature around us as we sat on our balcony. We will be back next year to relax and have fun again.
Very relaxing and enjoyable stay
My husband and I have stayed at Arsenic & Old Lace B&B in Eureka Springs and had a fabulous visit. The Inn is beautiful and in the perfect spot in Eureka Springs. Close enough to walk to downtown, yet you feel like you are away from the world. Sitting on the lovely front porch and having a glass of wine was wonderful - we felt totally stress free !! The new innkeepers were great and we felt very welcome. We have stayed at many B&B's in Eureka Springs and other parts of the country and we feel this B&B is one of the best !!
A Wonderful, Relaxing Experience
My wife and I recentlyvisited this establishment as a Valentine's/Anniversary retreat and found the experience to be ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!!! The owners went above & beyond the call to make us feel at home and were very helpful in giving us information about local attractions & directions. The atmosphere and surroundings were impeccable and allowed 6 months of job & parenting stress to melt away in a matter of hours. The home is absolutely beautiful and a more romantic setting could not be found. Finally, the breakfast was as good or better than any that I have had at resort restaurants throughout the south. Simply stated, we could not have asked for more or been more pleased with any portion of our stay. Words cannot express our delight or our thanks to the owners for a fantastic B&B experience.
A short visit
I recently stayed here for a night and had a good time. The B& B is very clean, nicely decorated, nice location, sweet Inn Keepers and great food. I also have to say that I kinda felt like a kid back at Mom and Dads where they want you to have fun, but with a few rules. It's true a tour is done and it's done nicely but it still comes across as rules. I didn't feel uncomfortable just not at as ease as one should when staying at a B & B. We would often drop our voices , we didn't want to be to loud. We didn't visit alot with Inn Keepers and that is a shame. I love to meet new people. If you want a nice , clean place and can live with a few rules this would work for you. I've stayed at other B& B's and have never been made to feel like there were rules to live by. My suggestion to Inn Keepers "I understand it's your home and you want it to remain nice but approach the do's and don'ts in a different way and all your clients would just love the place.
Wonderful if you loved being instructed as a child
Arsenic and old Lace is a Beautiful Victorian Home. With the most anal retentive owners one could wish to encounter. The trip started with a lovely but instructional tour of the hotel, where we were promptly instructed to read ...ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS!! We were most offended and very uncomfortable when entering the main house. We watched one of the sweatest couples we had ever met offended and run off. They were very irate to say the least. The innkeepers then tried to involve us by EXPLAINING WHAT HAD JUST HAPPENED. When I informed them I did not want to be involved and that I was here to get married and relax ( which was less than 2 hours away ) they continued on anyway. We were treated like children everytime we entered the house. We didn't feel comfortable enough to even go to breakfast, which is supposed to be part of the whole experience. Beautiful home, owners need to realize that they are operating a business designed for the confort and enjoyment of their guests. At no time did we feel welcome in the home and our needs and comforts were certainly not a consideration. Homeowners were very concerned that I may drip some creamer on their tile countertops.
"here, hold on a minute there let me wipe the bottle, you are about to drip that". Wow that might have permanitly ruined that beautiful white ceramic countertop!! When returning to my room with the coffee mugs, frightened that the steam from my coffee could possibly peel their wallpaper, he was following me saying "watch it!! You are jiggling it!!
These are just a few things that where finaly starting to wear on us.
The whole experience every step of the way was like that. I know it sounds petty but everytime you stepped in was a series of questions followed by instructions. I am a manager for a large Communications company and my new wife is a surgical nurse for a heart surgery team.
Eureka Springs is a beautiful little town with good dining and shopping opportunities. We would recommend the Best Western over this bed and breakfast. We were served a wonderful breakfast there by friendly and courteous employees. The rooms were very clean and comfortable!!
