Awesome B&B

5 on October 25, 2016

We stayed 4 nights at Hidden Springs Bed& Breakfast and can't say enough good about it. From start to finish the experience was awesome! John goes out of his way to please. Found the customer service to be outstanding with every little detail took care of. A wonderful breakfast every morning delivered to your room or cottage. Enough out of the downtown area to be peaceful but close enough could walk into if wanted. You can't go wrong with this great B&B.

Great place to stay.

Charming 1902 home with clean, comfortable rooms and a generous breakfast served to your room each day. Hidden Springs is conveniently located, an easy walk to downtown or hop on the trolley a few blocks down the street and go anywhere in the area. The owner, John, is an excellent host and a great resource for local history, dining, activities and points of interest.

Timeless Beauty

My wife and I stayed and were so pleased to be surrounded by the beauty and nature all around us. The owner put together a top notch breakfast and provided amazing service during our stay.

Quiet but Close to the Action

5 on October 06, 2016

I've stayed at several B&Bs, and Hidden Springs was the first that I truly felt "at home." Great value, too, only a few dollars more than a local hotel chain serving stale biscuits and jam in the lobby for breakfast. Traveling alone, I stayed in the suite attached to the main house. The decor was charming, historical details everywhere, and it was hard to go home to my bed after sleeping on such luxurious linens. The neighborhood is quiet, but only a few blocks walking distance from downtown. John takes special care to make sure every guest's needs are met, and that each person who visits feels like family before they leave. VERY clean -- cleanest jacuzzi I've ever seen, and the grounds were immaculate. The cottages would be excellent for honeymooners, and weddings would be beautiful here, also. Breakfast is served when you want it, so no rushing to the table, and John will bring it to your doorstep or set you up on the back patio. I suggest the patio -- lots of wildlife to entertain you while you sip your gourmet coffee and try to finish the enormous helping of delicious breakfast. Can't wait to take my husband back to Eureka; this will be our new favorite place, I think.

A Wonderful Stay

We had a "girl's weekend" and the cottages were beautiful, clean, and we knew we were in good hands in case anything unexpected popped up. We'll definitely be returning!

Best Stay We've Had!

Cute Little Cottage

3.8 on August 08, 2016

The room was quite a bit smaller then we had expected but we had a wonderful stay none the less. John, the owner, is extremely friendly and really went out of his way to make sure we had a lovely stay. He was able to advise on some good resturants to eat at and some fun things to do. The room was very clean. It was extremely hot and humid the weekend we stayed and the room stayed nice and cool. We enjoyed the little patio and did see deer one afternoon when we sat out there. I would highly recommended staying here, however if we do come back I would prefer to stay in one of the bigger rooms.

Hidden Springs B & B is a gem

5 on June 14, 2016

Hidden Springs is charming and comfortable. It is quite but a short walk to the main streets of Eureka Springs. John is a wonderful and knowledgeable host who shared the history of the home with us and told us things to do in town. I forgot my blow dryer and he delivered one to borrow in a few short minutes. There is a kitchen area if you bring food to use and the breakfast he brought to us was delicious. We would definitely stay again.
