Our motorcycle group met here at the end of September, and we had a great time!. The owner, Mike, was very nice and excited to have us there. He was very concerned that we were all comfortable. When my husband and I ran late in arriving the first night. he called to make sure we were OK.
I have read other reviews of this establishment and feel that one must think of this inn as a rather large bed-and breakfast - without the "gourmet breakfast" - but definitely WITH the owner involvement. Mike and his wife catered to all the guests - even the non-motorcycling ones - with advice on local attractions and restaurants. Each night he set up a campfire in the firepit that was surrounded by high backed benches. The pool was closed for the season, so I have no comments on it. There were 3 grills available for a cook-out, and some long picnic tables for the feast.
The continental breakfast adheres to the definition - drinks and pastries, no meat. There are other excellent places in the area to get a full breakfast or an upscale late morning meal. The bed was quite comfortable, the room itself a bit dark, but no worse than other rooms in chain motels. The decor was "mountain chic" with attention to details such as ironwork headboards and tribal print bedspreads. The room had a small refrigerator that worked well. A coffee maker and hairdryer in the room for convenience. A microwave was available in the ice machine area; also snack and soda machines.
The owner wants to make sure ALL guests have an enjoyable stay, and this means he keeps an eye on activities on the property. If someone is causing another guest to be uncomfortable , he will step in and correct the problem, whether it is a noisy group or a noisy child. No smoking is allowed in the rooms, and he politely asks that butts and trash be placed in the proper receptacles, which he provides. I find NOTHING unreasonable about his behavior,
I would highly recommend Country Mountain Inn to anyone going the Eureka Springs!
