We just returned from Eureka Springs and enjoyed our stay at the All Seasons Inn so much that it is worth sharing. Upon our arrival, we were delighted with the area and the Inn property; our stay continued to build upon our initial impressions.
The All Seasons Inn is actually comprised of three adjacent buildings, All Seasons Inn, Briarwood Lodge, and Daffodil Inn which are all located in the historical district on Spring Street (there are natural springs with a few feet of the property). We stayed in the cozy and tastefully ornate suite named Secret Gardens, at Daffodil Cottage. The variety of accommodations at All Seasons Inn all include suites that have all been completely renovated to include modern comfort and conveniences. Our large suite consisted of a parlor, kitchen that included a microwave and refrigerator, luxurious two-person Jacuzzi bathroom with plenty of hot water and good water pressure, and two bedrooms with king or queen sized beds. We noticed a sleeper sofa in the parlor but we did not need to use it.
We thoroughly enjoyed the central air and ceiling fans that have been added to this historical property. The renovation provided more than ample comfort during our stay since the outdoor weather at the time was hot and muggy. It felt heavenly at night to snuggle up under the luxurious bed linens and float comfortably away to dreamland.
In the morning we enjoyed the new day and coffee on our private porch before breakfast in the dining room. The breakfast menu consists of something for everyone no matter what your taste or dietary desires might be. The hearty breakfast sustained us through the day until dinner; Eureka Springs offers a variety of dining establishments and we enjoyed sampling some of the local restaurants in the afternoon and evening. During breakfast we chatted with other guests all of whom were extremely friendly and most of them were repeat guests on return visits to the inn. The welcoming and gracious innkeeper, Pat, is a wonderful hostess who thoroughly enjoys her guests; I can see why people enjoy going back to All Seasons Inn. While enjoying our breakfast, Pat and other guests chatted with us regarding Eureka Springs, area shopping, attractions, dining recommendations, etc; most of which are walking distance from All Seasons. A trolley stop across the street from the inn will take you to sites not within the historical district if you want to enjoy the sites along the way. It is worth noting that if you plan to dine at a particular restaurant, not all restaurants are open seven days a week; during the week, the some restaurants close for a day to give their employees some time off. But the restaurants rotate their days closed for business, so that travelers always have a fine selection for dining. An added benefit of All Seasons Inn is the free onsite parking for lodging guests; parking is at a premium in Eureka Springs since the town was obviously built long before heavy automobile traffic came to be. We noticed that other lodgings offered either no parking or inconvenient parking that required guests to climb hills to and from their vehicles, since Eureka Springs is located in the mountainous Ozarks.
For our fancy dinner out, we ate at the Crescent Hotel. We enjoyed the dinner, but were even more delighted by the friendliness of the staff and the hotel’s antiquity. Our server was working his third day of employment; he fumbled a bit but his desire to serve and do so correctly exceeded any negativity to our experience. We enjoyed interesting conversation with the man at the hotel registration desk about the hotel’s haunting history.
In the evening, even though we could enjoy snacks from All Seaons complimentary snack bar, select a movie from the DVD collection, play a board game, or relax in the gazebo, we were tired from the days’ activities and settled in for a quiet and peaceful night’s sleep.
My husband and I look forward to be return guests someday. Our 26 year old daughter is anxious to return All Seasons Inn and share the experience with her sister and sister-in-law. I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy the luxury, comfort and warm hospitality at All Seasons Inn, I totally recommend it without hesitation.
