“Christmas at Sky Ridge”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

We spent Christmas at Sky Ridge and had a wonderful getaway. The cabin (#6) was tastefully decorated and cozy. The property is beautiful, with lots of acres to explore and enjoy. And the sky was AMAZING! Brilliant stars! Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating, and we enjoyed several movies from their large collection. The jacuzzi tub was very nice, and we soaked away several hours and a lot of tension. Overall, the experience was even better than we hoped for and we hope to return in the spring when the grounds will probably be even more beautiful.

People often say I'm to critical, expect too much, (like having food served HOT at a restaurant), always complaining. I've nothing but praise for the Retreat at Sky Ridge!! Not only is it remote, quiet, beautiful and tranquil, the cabin we stayed in (#2) was perfect. Not only was the setting and accommodations perfect, (it is really nice being in a shower where you can fully stretch your arms and hit nothing but air!! This shower is so big it will easily accomodate four!!) Eric was the ultimate host. On our trip down via motorcycle, we had a flat. He first helped us by locating some service places, the followed up by even driving into town to come get us after our second flat of the day!! And took us back the next day. Way above and beyond what I'd ever expect in service!! But we received it here!! We will be back.

If you do arrive by cycle, you will have about a mile of gravel road to reach the resort.

We were having our wedding in Eureka Springs but it was going to be a rather large wedding and since Eureka Springs mostly caters to small weddings we knew it would be a difficult task to find a reception site large enough to accomadate us. That's when I started looking online and found the Retreat at Skyridge. It was very large, spacious and absolutely beautiful inside as well as the scenery outside! It was perfect! It had nature everywhere and cabins that family could stay in that was conveniant. The reception hall had everything we needed: a dance floor, kitchen with plenty of fridges to store our food, bathrooms. back patio where geust who smoked could go,patio with lounge chairs and a cooker that can feed over 100 people, tables, chairs and linens were provided, rolling bar and not to mention that you didn't have to have a certain bartender or caterer. That was the best part considering most places make you use their bar or caterer which can end up costing a lot. We were able to bring in our own food and alcohol. The staff was so friendly and went above and beyond to help us with anything we needed and don't forget Yonkie. Their horse that lives there is so sweet and beautiful. We enjoyed feeding her apples. Also pets are allowed at not additional cost which is also amazing since everywhere else I called charged for it plus your pet gets a little special treatment. The whole atmosphere was so calming and relaxing we never wanted to leave. We plan to come back for our anniversary and stay the whole weekend. I would definetely recommend The Retreat at Skyridge to anyone who is having a large wedding but doesn't want to be restricted by all the rules that other places have such as using a specific caterer or someone who has a liquor license and I would say that if you love nature, warm hospitality, being able to have your pet with you for FREE where they treat your pet like a guest then this is the place for you!!! We will most certainly be going back just to drop some apples by for Yonkie.

Needed to get away from the city but wanted to be close to Eureka Springs. Found a private mountain-top cabin overlooking Beaver Lake. Saw eagles fly in the morning and deer crossed our paths all day long. King bed, jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, full kitchen, TV/VCR/DVD, stereo, fireplace. Covered front porch w/ porch swing and chairs. It is a perfect getaway and Cindy is the perfect host.

Room Tip: Ask Cindy!

We had stayed here on our honeymoon 15 years ago...a sweet older couple owned it and was a very special place. We had decided to come back here to celebrate our anniversary. Upon arrival it was wonderful! So many memories! The cabin was as we remembered it...a little on the worn side though, bathroom was a little on the moldy side. The majority of our stay was pleasant. A night of beating drums and whoots and hollers from somewhere below was a bit on the wierd side. Before leaving, we had found out that we were overcharged quite a bit...thinking that we had it straightened out we left for home. After several contacts with the owner and her confirming that she had taken care of it, we never recieved our money back. Very disappointing! Probably wouldn't recommend it until there are new owners.

New owners have renovated this cabin and it has an all new bathroom. New bathrooms in 2 other cabins also. One new pond and Sky Ridge Pavilion added since this review was written. The billing issue was resolved.

Ive noticed that most people have a good experience but that must be with the upper end cabins, our cabin had no shower, hand held only, and the area around the tub was wood, and appeared to have a fungus growing in the cracks, and joints around tub.the stove wasnt cleaned, and the microwave was from some other time, no numbers to program it. the tr,ash was left from previous guests in outside can no way to lock top for animals and of course in the morning trash and maxi pads everywhere, we stayed 2 of 3 days the bed and tub are almost on the last legs, i feel that the mgmt dosent want to spend the money to bring it up to par.we did get discount 99$ per night instead of 150.i really would have been mad.have stayed in worse in eureka springs but not many,again spend the money for an impression and have people return,we will not and we travel and stay there at least 2-3 times a year and 3-4 days at a time. sorry for lousy review but there isnt any excuse for this,if your not making it sell it let someone else take over.
