My husband and I rented the "Reel em' Inn" cabin for the first weekend of January for our 5th wedding anniversary and brought our pomeranian, Caesar, along. We have a great time relaxing and the other two cabins on either side of us were vacant, so we really felt like we had privacy. January is a slow time in Eureka Springs, so we had no issues with dealing with traffic and were able to explore the town without hassle. Some of the restaurants and shops were closed, but we still felt like we had plenty to do.
The cabin had all of the amenities we were expecting and more. The kitchen includes a full-size working stove and oven, microwave, full-size refrigerator, coffee maker, coffee grinder (coffee beans provided), toaster, plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, etc. We didn't do any baking, but it's nice to know it's available. Although the cabin had a "rustic" feel to it, it had many modern upgrades, such as a gas fireplace with a therostat, TV with cable, Ipod dock radio, and wi-fi internet and DVD player. The bed was very comfortable and cozy. The the entire cabin was CLEAN! No housekeeping complaints here, and I'm very picky.
The Inn Keeper helped us arrange a couples massage in our cabin when we arrived. My husband had never had a massage so it was a nice, relaxing way to kick off our anniversary weekend.
We wrapped up our weekend with a Ghost Tour at the Crescent Hotel, which was lots of fun. The first weekend in January is the annual paranormal weekend at the Crescent Hotel, so the Ghost tours were allowed to access rooms that would normally be booked and off limits. Lucky us!
We're from Jonesboro, AR and although the drive is five hours, it didn't seem like it, because the drive is so scenic and beautiful. I think we'll be back next year, it was everything we needed to just relax and get away. We were sad to leave! I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!
