“Best place we've ever stayeda”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

We have never stayed at a b&b before and we weren't sure what to expect, but this place was phenomenal! The innkeepers were so sweet and we could tell how much they love the house. Breakfast was amazing and the house was beautiful. Nyou won't be disappointed!

We have stayed at several B & Bs, but never one like this one. We were greeted in the driveway before we could take our helmets off. David, Rebecca and their staff go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a memorable one. We loved the history of the house, all of the antique furnishings, the food was a wonderful experience and we left having made new friends.

Wonderful place to rest and unwind. Perfect lover's retreat. Beautiful home they so graciously share. Love the history, food and the Inn Keepers. David and Rebecca are top notch! We would recommend Tinkerbell's Wildwood B & B for any occasion.

i came to know to about this place from TripAdvisor. it was indeed a top class B&B. It was a rare experience to stay in such a big and high architectural house. David and Rebecca was very kind and showed complete house, told stories about house..was very interesting. wood work is very nice. It was very great feeling, our room blue parlor had swing on balcony..it was great to sit there and look towards road. Breakfast was great.

Room Tip: we stayed in Blue parlor, it had swing... i also saw king David, it was bigger than blue parlor and...

The staff at Wildwood truly raises the bar on outstanding service. The charm, history and elegance of this place totaly surpasses the predictability of chain hotels for around about the same price. David, Rebecca and the rest of the staff took care of our every need. Outstanding service. The breakfast alone is worth going for. Amazing 3 - 4 course meals creatively prepared and served in teriffic atmosphere. Fellowship with guest from around the country. Everyone feels at home from the warmth and hospitality provided by the staff. Last minute anniversary trip for us and hope to return soon. Would recommend it to anyone.

This historic home is just simply magnificent but what made it truly extraordinary was the hospitality of David and Rebecca. From the moment you walk in, they treat you as if you are family, showing you around and inviting you to make yourself at home with a snack or coffee (which, are included). The rooms are so beautiful and comfortable and breakfast is, in a word, amazing. Three courses so you won’t want a heavy lunch. They have even taken time to put together recommendations on where to eat dinner and are happy to recommend activities in the area or even arrange them for you. Definitely take the time to do the after-breakfast tour where Rebecca will take you on a trip back in time into the history of the home and the family that built it as well as the town of Hot Springs. We will most definitely stay here every time we visit Hot Springs in the future!

Room Tip: The Blue Parlor room has a balcony with a porch swing. Great for reading in the morning with a nice...

I decided to take my wife to Hot Springs for a nice relaxation weekend. So, of course I go to TripAdvisor to find the top B&B's in the area. Wildwood popped up and I was amazed that 100% of the reviews were either Excellent or Very Good. I booked a couple of nights and was both excited about the weekend and a little skeptical that the B&B could actually be that good. My wife and I have stayed at a lot of B&B's and some on the East Coast were some of the very best in the nation. So, how does Wildwood compare?

The best feature about Wildwood is David and Rebecca, the innkeepers. They have a warmth that is seldom seen in B&B's. David is a jovial fellow that can keep you entertained for hours with his stories and instantly makes you feel at home. Rebecca has that same warmth and can keep you spellbound with over a hundred years of history of the home and a tour that is beyond compare. The next best feature about Wildwood is the house. The woodwork is simply amazing and requires more than just a casual glance to truly appreciate the intricate details and thought that have gone into its design. The final feature that truly sets Wildwood apart is the quality of the food. The food is really good and Cindy works so hard to make sure that everyone is served quickly and is pleased with the meal. Don't miss out on breakfast!!! The conversation around the breakfast table is one of the key things that truly makes a B&B what it is.

The room that we stayed in was actually one of the suites across the street from the main house that is called the Moroccan Room. In my opinion, this is the nicest accommodation on the entire property. The reasons are that it is approximately twice the size of the rooms in the main house, has a lot more privacy, has a large Jacuzzi tub and a walk in shower, is an excellent place to sleep and relax since the window is blacked out in the bedroom, and is stocked with all kinds of goodies when you get hungry.

There are a lot of things to do in Hot Springs and I'll provide a couple of recommendations. First, if you have done the spa thing and want to try something different, then you might try a traditional bathhouse for a different experience. We spent the better part of a day at the BuckStaff Bathhouse and enjoyed it immensely. I would recommend the basic bathing package and a pedicure for guys. For the girls, you might try the same thing and add a manicure and facial. Do not get the massage!!! It is one of the worst you will ever experience. There is a great massage place in town called Thai-Me and that is the place to go. Second, for dinner you will want to check with David and Rebecca for some excellent recommendations. We tried Fishermans Wharf and found it to be mediocre seafood (don't get the stuffed shrimp since it is stuffed with some sort of crab cake filling instead of just crab that the menu lists) and tried Brau Hause and after all these years we still liked the german meatloaf, mushrooms, and german beer! We ate at Brau Hause about 9 years ago and my wife still remembered that german meatloaf! You might also want to try Fat Bottom Girl's Cupcakes. They are located just down the street from the B&B and have some pretty tasty cupcakes.

This was only a 2 night stay at Wildwood, however, that two days did more for my wife and I in terms of relaxation than any other stay that I can remember in recent years. Stay at Wildwood ... you will definitely not regret it!
