I absolutely adore this little gem in Little Rock! I originally was just looking for a hotel with a spa so that my husband and I could get massages. Right after Christmas, apparently everyone is redeeming gift cards and NO ONE could squeeze us in. I finally found the Empress B&B had a massage package and was like why not, i cant book a massage anywhere else... but this place is magical! walking in this late 1800s era house felt very grand but intimate at the same time. We toured the home and loved the little history of the home too. And our suite, WOW! it was so beautiful and relaxing that we never left the room. We had a picnic in the room by the fireplace and then in-suite massages. As soon as the massage therapists left, we hopped in the huge jacuzzi. Afterwards we snuggled in this massive, cozy bed and talked about our past and future together. It began to rain and the sweet sounds of rain pitter patter carried us to a wonderful nights rest. The next morning, our friendly butler Bob, woke us up to a delicious breakfast in bed. Talk about feeling like royalty! Took a shower in the steam shower, jets spraying water from every direction, it was like another massage! i wished we couldve stayed another night, i so did not want to leave! I want to go back again in the spring or summer, i bet the garden looks so pretty when the flowers are in bloom. Cute little setting for an intimate outdoor wedding. We go on vacation just about every 3-4 months as we dont have children yet, so i can tell you that this place is definitely one of my top 5 vacations spots, pretty impressive considering ive been all over the US and overseas several times. Its a place where its about love and intimacy, getting back to the basics, stepping away from the hustle and bussle of everyday life and living in the moment.
