“Cliff Cottage Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I have stayed in many bed & breakfasts which range from good to not so great experiences but our experience here exceeded my expectations.

Beginning with a reserved parking space in a town that can be a challenge to find parking.

A complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival in our suite to enjoy privately along with beverages (soda) of your preference which was pre-determined at time of reservation. There were sweets and baked goodies in the suite as well as chocolates on the pillow :)

The accommodations were very nice but the most refreshing detail was breakfast delivered to our suite and at 9:15 NOT 7:00 or some crazy, early time. This was a much appreciated departure from other B&Bs. Sometimes you don't feel like shooting the breeze over breakfast with the Innkeeper regardless how pleasant they may or may not be. And dining with the other guests is not always a treat either. I loved that this was the chosen method.

I also need to mention that the "elves" were extremely thorough in providing directions, reccomendated dining, things to do ahead of time just great people.

We will go back, I'm sure.

Green Features: The suite was equipped with coffee and tea BUT it was sugar & creamer bowls & fresh ground coffee which eliminates a lot of waste with packaging which is a very good thing.

Whooops....had so many guests lately I"ve gotten behind in thanking our wonderful guests for the kind things they write in their reviews! We are THRILLEd that these guests enjoyed staying with us and yes, its a long walk from other B&Bs to get downtown to the shops and restaurants(esp. if it is raining or real hot) and if their guests decide to drive downtown, parking can never be found! So we always tell our guests we are booking them a parking space and the suite is free!

We stayed at the Oscar Wilde Cottage for a relaxing Anniversary weekend. It was absolutely wonderful! The cottage is beautifully decorated with a safari theme and has a full kitchen if you choose to cook. It is located only a few steps from main street for convenience, so park your car in front of your cottage and leave it until time to go home! No need to fight the traffic or find a place to park. Eureka Springs is a wonderful place to visit no matter what sort of getaway you enjoy but be prepared to pay for the nicer places. This is not a one-room place to sleep. This is a luxury cottage with plenty of room including a living area, sitting room, breakfast nook, kitchen, bedroom, and bath. It also includes a secluded hot tub to relax at the end of the day. Although breakfast isn't served, the amazing innkeeper leaves a wonderful coffee, cream & sugar, and a bottle of wine or champagne for your enjoyment. Highly recommend the Cliff Cottage Inn!

We stayed at Cliff Cottage in the Oscar Wilde Cottage for a weekend to get away from the rat race. I don't think we could have picked a better place for relaxation and rejuvenating time. Conveniently located at the end of the Historic District, it is within walking distance of many fine restaurants and pubs (as long as you don't mind some hills, which are inevitable in Eureka Springs!!) After a nice dinner, it was back to the Cottage for a glass of wine and soak in the hot tub - very relaxing. I would strongly recommend this as a getaway from the hectic world for anyone needing some relaxation. We will definitely be returning.

Thanks to Mike and his beloved for choosing A Secret Cottage (Oscar Wilde's) for their getaway. All our guests staying there love that hot tub...surrounded by woods on three sides and with a fantastic view of the twinkling lights from the 4th side. Oscar Wilde sends his best regards and would love it if these guests decide to stay again as he said he doesn't have immediate plans to cross the "Herring Pond" again!

We stayed at the Cliff Cottage for Blue's weekend in Eureka. It was very clean, well kept, and beautiful. We couldn't have found a place with as much privacy, as close to downtown shopping and entertainment. The breakfast was delicious! You will also not ever meet a nicer couple than the Inn keepers. They are full of information and the best hospitality you could ask for! We will definitely go back and are reccommending it to everyone we know!

What a treat it was having Marty and Heather stay with us. My new hubby (apprentice elf, he calls himself) keeps saying over and over, "How on earth do you always get such nice people to stay here? I wish we lived near all of them so we could have them as our year-round friends!"
It's true, too -- each and every guest we've had has been super wonderful and I am very grateful to have a "job" where I am surrounded by kindness and joy! I wouldn't trade this life for any other!

You are a a stairway away from main street and the main trolly station. Park your car and forget it as everything will be in walking/trolly distance. Sandra and Carl are the best in innkeepers and the breakfasts are to die for. Romance and relaxation awaits you. My wife and I have made 8 trips to Eureka Springs over the last 25 years and have stayed at the Cliff Cottage the last 4 trips. Best time to travel is spring and especially early October when the fall colors are at their peak.

Room Tip: Try the Sara Bernhardt Suite

Stayed twice. First time at the Emily Dickinson Suite. It was great! The only thing that wasn't so great was, at the time of reservation i was asked about food allergies. The breakfast was a red, white and blue something american breakfast loaded with walnuts, which was the allergy i stated. I wanted a b & b so i wouldn't have to trek out for food in the am, but oh well. I did, after all stay a second time.
Second stay at the Thoreau room. This stay was a stark contrast to the first. The climate control is outside in the hall, or atleast i found that out after i had checked out. So my girlfriend and i froze the whole stay. Also, i booked the room because it had a fireplace, or so it advertised. Its basically a stage prop with a can of some type of flammable jelly that you light. So the room doesn't come with a fireplace, just a glorified candle. I was embarrased my girlfriend had to see that after raving about the fireplace that awaited us. The room is crowded, with WAY too much furniture. Its decorated similarly to a 1985 good housekeeping magazine. Reminded me of grandma's house. The tv is probably 20" that has a VHS player with VHS tapes downstairs (yep, thats right..VHS). There was a radio at bedside that had a sticky note stating not to use the alarm because it didn't work. How much does it cost for a cheap radio at wal-mart to replace the old one, especially in a room close to $200 a night? and the note was old, it had been there awhile. I wasn't asked about food allergies on the second stay but the food didnt' have walnuts this time. It was a mexican omelet i think.
I should've either stayed at the Basin Park or New Orleans where i've never had a bad stay, for the same amount of money basically.
Staying here is a gamble, do your research.

We were very surprised that it took this gentleman 7 months to write a review complaining about our inn as it didn't give us a chance to try to make anything up to him for his dissatisfaction. First, our location is the best as we are the only B&B inn in the heart of the Historic Downtown and all our guests, bar none, rave about only having to walk 17 steps to Main Street shops, restaurants, clubs and galleries with no need to drive around for hours hunting for parking. So for him to give us a very low rating on "location" is hard to understand. We also don't understand the low rating on "sleep quality" as we have all our custom mattresses hand-made by a third generation of local family mattress-makers and no other guest has ever found the mattresses uncomfortable. Regarding food allergies, we send a very comprehensive confirmation to every guest which states very clearly that if guests have food allergies, they need to alert us ahead of time. For this guest to think we would be able to remember a year back to when he previously stated he had food allergies seems unreasonable, especially when we have never used walnuts in any of our recipes! If he had read our confirmation, he would have known to alert us to his allergies. Regarding the climate control, the thermostat is right in the center of the hallway which he had to pass each time he went in and out of his suite. When we purpose-built this house as a B&B inn, we had two separate heating/air systems installed so guests upstairs could regulate temperature to their own comfort. If he didn't read the confirmation that explains about the thermostat, we are indeed, sorry. Apparently he forgot the conversation we had when he was booking this suite because we always explain, without fail, that the fireplaces are faux fireplaces that operate on cans of liquid gel -- each can burns 3 hours -- as regrettably, the City Building Inspector would not allow us to put log-burning fireplaces in the upstairs of a public-occupied lodging. Most of our guests don't have time to sit in the room watching TV but in January, we replaced TVs with flat-screen 32" models with DVD/VCR players. We have over 100 VHS movies many of which are classics that we share with our guests who enjoy them on rainy nights. We've replaced the bedside sound machine at the start of this season with a new model. We're happy to hear, 8 months later, that the guest has decided to return to one of the hotels for his future visits.

My husband and I stayed in the Emily Dickenson suite Memorial Day weekend, 2013, and were thoroughly pleased with the spacious rooms, Innkeeper, Sandra and her husband and all the relaxing comforts they provided. Breakfast was an awesome experience. Everything we did while in Eureka Springs came as a recommendation from Sandra from a luxurious spa to tram tour to trout fishing guide to various eateries. A lovely area with the most friendly people. When you leave you feel like you are leaving new friends, especially Sandra and her husband. We will definitely return to Cliff Cottage Inn.
