Blue Crystal Hideaway

23 Elk St. , Eureka Springs, 72632 USA (Show map)


Our cottage is a stand-alone, one unit B&B, located at the back end of our property behind our main house. We especially love the fact that the architecture mirrors that of our historic Victorian home built in 1900 by a well known architect named Perkins. We are only 1/2 block from the historic downtown district and 1/2 block off the historic loop. You will love our romantic doll house with cathedral ceilings, fireplace and jacuzzi tub/shower, as well as the antique furnishings and stained glass. Fully functional kitchen with stove, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, and coffee maker. Gourmet continental breakfast and a bottle of sparkling wine are included with your stay. If you prefer not to walk downtown, there are multiple trolley stops nearby. You will also enjoy the quiet secluded location and occasional sightings of deer and white squirrels from your front porch. Enjoy the serenade of the many songbirds that live in the trees that surround the house. In addition, during evening hours, you can feast on the magical display of fireflies in your front yard. Don't want to head out for dinner? No problem - you can prepare a fine gourmet meal in your own private kitchen. See our Facebook page for a great review on this property.

Had a great stay!

Clean, great scenery, quiet, perfect location. A short walk to the left to go downtown to eat or shop. One block to the right is White St with more restaurants. I liked the small cozy house. Only thing I wish it had was a couch instead of a love seat in the living room. We would stay there again.

A secluded oasis in the heart of Eureka Springs

5 on March 20, 2018

If anyone is looking for a secluded romantic stay in Eureka Springs, this is it. I’ve stayed in many cottages in this historic little town but this one is very unique because it is set in the back of the owner’s main property with a privacy fence and has a beautiful landscape leading down to it. There is a line of trees separating the cottage from the other houses nearby. It really is its own oasis because the main property is also conveniently located in the historic district of the town, close to Ermilio’s restaurant and downtown Eureka Springs! This little private cottage is the perfect little getaway for anyone looking for a romantic weekend with their other half! The owners are very accommodating and cordial and they keep the place very clean. I love the traditional historic feel of Eureka Springs with all the decor and the beautiful garden. We Will definitely stay here again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind thoughts about our little cottage. We always enjoy sharing our doll house with others who share our love of the romantic history of Eureka Springs. We look forward to having you back soon.

Fabulous Hideaway in the middle of the action

5 on November 14, 2016

The Blue Crystal Hideaway was a fabulous place to stay. Private and conveniently located in the middle of Eureka Springs. Kathy & Gary were terrific and everything was taken care of for us upon arriving. And the Hideaway itself was absolutely charming.

Amazing and Gorgeous Cottage in great location!

5 on November 14, 2016

We stayed at Blue Crystal Hideaway for our anniversary, and it was amazing! The cottage is fenced off and not on the street itself, so it is super quiet. There was only one cottage, so we had no one around us and had a lot of privacy. It's also only a few blocks from main street so one, there was no traffic near us, and two, we could just walk down to the shops and restaurants. The owners, Kathy and Gary, were super sweet and helpful. We will most definitely be checking the availability here before anywhere else in hopes to stay here again! You won't regret staying at the Blue Crystal. -Kevin

About the innkeepers

Becoming innkeepers was a delightful accident for us. Over the years we have both enjoyed many extended stays in Eureka Springs and often talked about owning a house of our own some day. After we bought a tiny little cottage as a vacation home, we decided to rent it out when we were gone and voila! Our tourist lodging business began. Several years later, we bought a larger Victorian home that came with this tiny little doll house in the back yard. So now we own 2 tourist lodgings.
