“Perfection...”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My husband and I traveled to Talihina for our 8th anniversary to do the Talimena Scenic Drive. I called Hootie Creek House Bed & Breakfast and spoke with Carolyn who was delightful on the phone and really got me excited to arrive in Talihina. We arrived around 6pm and were greated by the owners, Carolyn and Essex. They were very warm and seemd happy to have us. They spent time making sure we were settled and even took a few minutes to tell us about the area and things we might enjoy seeing the next day. The room was very cozy, clean, and the king bed was very comfortable. We were able to control the temperature of our room to our comfort. The shower had great water pressure as well.

We came down for breakfast the next morning and were serve delicious apple filled pancakes, scrambled eggs, and sausage. It was a perfect start to our day. Essex took us and another couple on a little tour of the facilities which we found very entertaining and enlightening about the history of the area.

As we were preparing to leave, our car wouldn't start. Essex jumped to help and brought his truck and cables around for a jump. Turned out to be loose cables, but Essex got in there and tightened it up for us. We very much appreciated his customer service! Our drive was very nice. We ate in Mena, Arkansas for lunch at the Branding Iron Steakhouse which was delicious. When we arrived back in Talihina around dinner time, we opted for takeout from The Hateful Hussy Diner so we could go back to our room to enjoy dinner at our leisure. The food from the hateful hussy was decent. Nothing to write home about, but satisfying.

Sunday morning breakfast was a very tasty quiche and fresh watermelon. We got a little more detail about a local "must see" from Essex and headed out. We will definitely return to Hootie Creek House Bed & Breakfast in the future. We highly recommend them for a comfortable and cozy place to stay, great breakfast, and warm and friendly hosts.

The Dallas newspaper had a story about the Scenic Byway from Talihina to Mena Arkansas and we thought it would make a nice short break. We found Hootie Creek on Trip Advisor and it sounded interesting. As other have said, the place is a redone hotel, very nicely finished off and spotlessly clean. We especially liked the comfortable queen bed in our room (#4) and the electric fireplace took the chill off in the evening while provide a nice ambiance. The floors look like the original wood floors, scrapped clean and refinished. We especially like the sitting room on the bedroom floor. It also had one of the electric fireplaces and was a pleasant place to spend some time reading. Breakfast was fine and we will echo other comments about the apple filled pancakes being delicious. Fresh cookies were a nice touch in the evening. Too bad there was no coffee along with them, but it was just a few minutes walk to Pam's diner where we were able to get take out coffee. Our night here made a perfect start to our drive on the Scenic Byway.

This is a wonderful, clean, place to stay. The breakfast is fantastic. If you are ever in the area, you definitely need to stay here. The couple that own this place are great people and you will enjoy visiting with them.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. You can't go wrong by staying here.

Me and my boyfriend recently stayed at the Hootie Creek while on a road trip across america. after a long day driving Carolyn and Essex were such welcoming hosts and really made us feel comfortable. They even let me meet their pugs who were so sweet!!! They have redone the whole place and it really is amazing. Our room was really clean, comfortable and even had fresh baked cookies for our arrival!! Breakfast was the best we had on our 2 month trip. Freshly made apple pancakes, fruit, scrambled egg, bacon and sausage!!!! Talihina is a quiet but beautiful little town and the Hootie Creek is a must for people traveling through. If we ever return we will definitely be staying at the Hootie Creek again.

My husband and I have made several visits to Hootie Creek. Carolyn and Essex are wonderful hosts. The accommodations are clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The food is outstanding. Just wait until you enjoy one of Carolyn's breakfasts (and Essex is in the kitchen, too). We try to get there as often as possible and have taken several different couples with us to visit and stay for a few days. I really believe there is nothing to compare in Southeastern Oklahoma.

This was a wonderful converted hotel. The room was very comfortable and tasteful. The bathroom had a shower/tub combination with the sink in an alcove separate from the toilet and shower. There was TV with satellite conection, electric fireplace and very good water pressure. The hosts were very personable and enjoyed learning about their remodeling of the building. There are only two places in to eat in town, Pam Hateful Hussy's Diner and Mexican Restaurant.. We drove up the Talimena Drive and couldn't see the great views due to the cloud covering and rain rolling in. Breakfast was great, an apple filled pancake plus scrambled eggs and bacon and coffee and juice. Homemade cookies greeted us upstairs by the sun room, near our room.

If you're anywhere near Talihina, do yourself a favor and stay at Hootie Creek. The owners have taken a condemned hotel (not just vacant, Condemned - for 10 years) and transformed it into a beautiful, warm, welcoming B&B. Clean, comfortable, pretty rooms; welcoming deck, porch, sunroom; delicious breakfast and snacks; innkeepers who feel like old friends.... what more could you ask for? We will stay there again, at the first opportunity!
