This place is awesome!! I will stay here again when I go back to eureka. The innkeeper was very nice and sweet. The breakfast was delicious everyday. The privacy was fantastic!! I recommend Heart of the Hills Inn to anyone who wants a relaxing time.

Not enough room to walk around the bed

3.6 on February 24, 2016

Everything about the stay was excellent except the size of the bedroom. I couldn't even walk around the bed.

Innkeeper Response
The pictures of the room on line are accurate and show that this room is the smallest of the three suites. The headboard is against the wall so one cannot walk around the bed. The room description is accurate as well so a guest can chose between the various suites based on need. Sorry that this guest was not happy with their room. This room is the Gabriel Suite and has the largest private deck of all the suites overlooking the gardens.

Nice Overnight Stay

The Summit Suite was spacious, comfortable and inviting. David was friendly and genuine. The breakfast was superb and our food restrictions were met with delicious gourmet substitutions. The inn has easy access and parking, which is very rare in Eureka Springs. The inn is just as described on the website and the perfect place to relax. The only tip I have is to take extra k cups for the Keurig if you are a heavy coffee drinker. Our only regret is not staying longer!

The Best ever bed and breakfast

4.0 on December 09, 2015

We stayed in a bed and breakfast last year did not enjoy having someone stand over you while you ate their breakfast. After reading reviews of this bed and breakfast decided to give it a chance. Best choice ever, we loved it. You have all your privacy and the most wonderful breakfast delivered to your room. We cannot wait to come back here again. Also very close to downtown, once we arrived we were in walking distance to everything. We did not get back in our car until checkout. Highly recommend this place to all adults for a very relaxing retreat. We will be back.

My husband and I had such a wonderful time here on our honeymoon. We stayed in the carriage house and it was just perfect.

Breakfast was almost too beautiful to eat

The rooms were spacious and comfortable. We received recommendations on where to eat and also where to visit on our road trip. Breakfast was provided in the room and beautiful to look at and tasted good too. We would stay here again.

We rented all three rooms of this beautiful inn. We were very pleased with the attention to detail in all rooms and loved the breakfast in the morning.

Little get away

This is our second time staying here. It is an amazing space to get away, but be close enough to the town to enjoy. Very comfortable and relaxing! The breakfast was delicious with beautiful presentation.

We had an excellent time at Heart of the Hills. It was a relaxing accommodating venue, that was peaceful when needed and in great proximity to the shops and restaurants. David was a great host and the food was quite delicious.
