We were greeted at the gate by an older lady that did not appear interested in us or being there, paid the $7 each to walk thru the "castle" , our experience took us a total of 15 minutes which just really highlighted one persons OCD is anothers art.

Was just about what you thought it might be, an old house that is covered with stones from the owners past with live plants growing inside the actual house. Believe it was almost 25 dollars for 2 of us to go thru the house. Save the money

Quirky is the best way to describe this place. It's an old farm house covered with rocks. The large windows allow for some interesting plant inside and the grounds are cool. It's not the highlight of a trip to Eureka Springs, but we enjoyed it.

Can you go inside?? That is something we were not sure of. It isn't specified, and every time we went to ask, the lady at the gate was welcoming another guest. The entire grounds are kept beautifully manicured. The story at the start with is interesting!

This is not a castle but is actually an old farmhouse at the end of a rough dirt road. It is possibly one of the strangest attractions we've ever been to. It is nothing more than the manifestation of one eccentric woman's obsessions with collecting rocks and creating strange objects which filled her house and garden. If you like quirky... More

We weren't sure about stopping, but so glad we did. The granddaughter told us the great story of how her grandmother built the house and decorated with rocks and shells she had collected since the age of 9. Definitely worth the $7/person. After she gives you a brief history, you take your time to go through the gardens and home... More

Wow, I'm so glad we stopped. Someone had left a review that it was to costly--are you kidding. What a reasonable price. The granddaughter is the hostess so she can answer all questions & is a nice, friendly lady. What a neat house, history & unique place So peaceful. You can just feel the love the original owner, Elise put... More

This castle is made from small stones hand picked by the lady that built it. She also has plants grown from flower beds inside the house that actually go to the second floor. A unique place to visit. There is a fee.

My husband and I visited Quigley's stone house and intriguing rock and flower garden this week. We enjoyed out visit and there were about 7 to 10 other couples there during our visit. The house is unique and preserved in time. The tour hostess is friendly and shares her unique family story, sharing her family pride about the home her... More
