Charming Inn, Fantastic Breakfast, Enchanting Experience

5 on November 18, 2014

The Cliff Cottage Inn is a must for those staying in Eureka Springs. The Sarah Bernhardt Suite with its Victorian charm whisked us away to a time when elegance and details are prized. All the comforts of home and a luxury Bed and Breakfast were provided. We were tempted to stay in the king-sized bed late into the morning, at least until 9:15 when our gourmet breakfast was delivered to our door. So much more than the typical breakfast you get at many B&Bs; each meal was a feast for the eyes as well as for the body, and truly fortified us for the day. We looked forward each morning to see what scrumptious delights were prepared for us. Due to a lingering cold front, we were not able to dine on the porch outside our room, but we were comfortable dining in the sitting room of our suite. The suite has a scenic view of the town and is steps away from the unique restaurants and shops in Eureka Springs. The Innkeepers, Sandra and Carl, were a very warm and inviting couple. They make time to visit with their guests, but are happy to give you privacy if that is what you’d like. The enchanting experience we had at Cliff Cottage Inn was our favorite part of our stay in Eureka Springs. We plan to return again soon.

Innkeeper Response
We are so grateful that this lovely couple chose our inn for their Razorbacks-LSU game visit up here from "down there". (Condolences that the Rbacks finally won a game!) It was such fun to chat off and on as they took advantage of all the fun things to do in our quirky little village! And I can't say enough what a delight it was when our elf picked up the breakfast tray after they were finished to find they had enjoyed everything on the tray! Yay, Louisianan foodies!


Exceptional!

My husband and I stayed at Cliff Cottages Inn for our anniversary. It was a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and outdoor shower! The treats, beer, and champagne awaiting us was a nice touch. The gourmet breakfast was wonderful. It is within walking distance to downtown which is nice so you do not have to pay for parking. I will be visiting again soon hopefully!

Innkeeper Response
It's such a treat to welcome couples celebrating a special occasion like an anniversary! You two lovebirds left such happy vibes behind when you checked out that all the inn elves were filled with happiness all week long after you left!


IDEAL location in Eureka Springs!

5 on September 25, 2014

My husband and I chose Cliff Cottage Inn for a weekend getaway because I wanted a cozy B&B.. in a great location to walk to downtown restaurants and shops.. and we couldn't have asked for better. First and foremost, the location can't be beat. We arrived late on a Friday night and so the detailed directions, envelope by the door and welcoming "midnight snacks" left by the Elves was perfect. We walked to a downtown bar & grill, an easy few steps down to Main St. We stayed in the Thoreau suite, in The Place Next Door. Very cute & cozy. I was happy to find half and half in the fridge for my coffee, as well as a nice selection of teas and cocoa. The bathroom was well stocked with everything needed, water pressure was wonderful, and there was a cute deck just off the living room area that was perfect for morning coffee. The place is just oozing with charm! The Elves were especially nice and helpful with suggestions for places to go-do-see around Eureka Springs. We absolutely LOVED our Cliff Cottage and can't wait to return!


Perfection

5 on August 25, 2014

From the first moment, we felt very comfortable at the Cliff Cottage Inn. Our hosts were gracious and awaiting our arrival. The room was very clean and comfortable, complete with champagne, midnight snacks, and an anniversary card! Everything was exactly as described on their website. Well, okay. The breakfasts were under described because they were absolutely amazing! We have stayed in several B&Bs across the country and Sandra's and Carl's breakfasts are truly exquisite; as pleasing to the eye as they are to palate. The location of the inn could not be better. It is only steps away from Main and Spring streets but those few steps equate to a quiet stay. Sandra and Carl are happy to provide information about what is going on and where to eat in town but they are never intrusive. Overall, a perfect place to stay to escape, relax and enjoy culinary delights every morning.

Innkeeper Response
These guests were the perfect guests! They get 10 gold stars as they told us they truly enjoyed the breakfasts. It's always so joyful when hubby elf Carl picks up the breakfast tray and finds everything devoured! We put so much time and love into our breakfasts that we are absolutely ecstatic when the guests enjoy them. Makes it all worthwhile!


My romantic weekend

We stayed at the Oscar Wilde cottage and had a wonderful time. It was close to historic downtown and walking distance to a convenience store for personal items. We had fine dining and the best pancakes I have ever eaten.


Fabulous Accomadations

Fabulous place to stay” 5 of 5 stars Pending review From the moment I made reservations on line and received our confirmation Sandra made sure our stay would be memorable. Immediately she sent information on how to find the Inn with detailed directions. These were most helpful considering the way the streets run. Then she also included in an email details of places of interest that we might enjoy as well as a list of eateries and a short little review on each one as well as a price range. We found this information so helpful when planning our stay. Upon arrival we immediately felt so welcome and Sandra and Carl were so helpful with information of the area attractions. The great thing about the Inn is the short walk to the trolley station. The trolley is a great way to get around the city and is very reasonable. The accommodations were above and beyond what we imagined. There were many special little touches from the plate of homemade cookies waiting for us to enjoy throughout our stay, a bowl of candies, and all of the special drinks from coffee, varied teas, hot chocolate, sodas, and of course your choice of wine, etc. The best part had to be the breakfast. It was nothing like we had ever experienced at a bed and breakfast. We so looked forward to having the elf show up each morning to see what he had brought. The food was not only wonderful but the attention to detail and the presentation was beyond the ordinary. Sandra and Carl were the best hosts. They did not bother us at all but were always available if we needed anything. They both have a genuine gift for hospitality. If we go again we will definitely stay with Sandra and Carl and we highly recommend that you do the same.

All the elves at Cliff Cottage Inn are delighted our guests had such a great time during their stay with us and that they enjoyed all the goodies! We enjoyed their visit as well!


Great People! Great Location!

4.6 on May 08, 2014

Celebrated our first anniversary at the Cliff Cottage Inn and it was quite the treat. The location is fantastic within walking distance of all the restaurants, shops and galleries on Main Street. The location and parking at the cottage made it so simple not to have to find parking around town, but rather just walk and enjoy the scenery. Even better are the hosts, Sandra and Carl. Sandra is a master cook that will wow you with her culinary skills and her warmth when she greets you upon arrival. Carl the "elf" delivers your breakfast right to your door! They also took the time to give us the secrets of town - the best places to eat and see - which made our weekend full of pleasure and fun. Highly recommend the Cliff Cottage Inn!

Innkeeper Response
We are SOOOO glad our guests celebrated their very first wedding anniversary at Cliff Cottage Inn and delighted they were able to enjoy the many treats Eureka Springs has to offer. Our inn specializes in special occasion celebrations and anniversaries lead the list! Happy we are able to provide the perfect location, too!


A wonderful experience

My wife and I visited Cliff Cottage Inn for our anniversary, and we loved it. Breakfast is delivered to your suite, and they are amazing! The cottage itself is cozy and romantic, with a great location overlooking Main Street. Sandra and Carl at Cliff Cottage Inn made us feel so welcome and really made sure our anniversary was special. We had a great time and will definitely be going back.

Innkeeper Response
What a treat to read our delightful guest's review and to learn that he and his wife had a happy anniversary at our inn. Anniversaries are so very special in these tenuous times and it always brings us so much joy to see couples enjoying quality time together...their happiness kinda rubs off on us! :)


Love this place! Stay here!

The Cliff Cottage Inn allowed us to have the best experience in the heart of Eureka Springs. My other half and I enjoyed every second of it. We ate at some amazing restaurants and had some magical moments! The suite we stayed in seemed to seal our relationship. It brought out the best in us. Thanks to this last weekend and the sweet touches at the Cliff Cottage Inn our birthday celebration was spectacular! The location was perfect and the warmth of Sandra and Carl made this stay absolutely brilliant. From the chilled wine to sweet little balcony...it was just wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing your light with us!! Meghan & Justin

Innkeeper Response
So glad our guests enjoyed their stay! The inn's elves try to make birthday celebrations the very best!

What a weekend: Started off bad because I drove into a brick wall but after checking in to the Emily Dickinson suite everything couldn't have been better. The bed was awesome(buying one soon)Jacuzzi, breakfast and sitting room were again awesome. Thanks Sandra and Carl for making a special weekend even more special and wonderful.P.S.thanks for the map of all the restaurants.

Innkeeper Response
It was a real pleasure having Jamie "and company" stay with us and so sorry that brick wall got in the way but delighted things went up hill from there! Thanks for the kind words!
