Love Affair Gone Awry

Most of our guests at The Peabody House and The Inn at Rose Hall know we own Lake Lucerne Cottages and the lake by the same name.  The lake is a small 6-acre lake two miles south of downtown Eureka Springs.

Over the past five years our guests have watched the waterfowl change from time to time on the lake depending upon the season.  Several years ago we became the owners of a flock of domestic geese that are noisy, territorial and possessive.  In spite of all of that they are very entertaining and we all love to watch their antics.

This spring we had three Canadian Geese arrive and check out the lake as a possible home.  The Domestic crew was not happy about their arrival and proceeded to force two of them to move on.  One did not leave.  She fell in love with one of the Domestic boys.  They have been a couple for the entire summer.  He has defended her time and time again.

Now we are waiting to see what happens in the fall.  Is she going to break his heart?  Will she stay or will she go?

Inn at Rose Hall

Original artworkThere is a new room at The Inn at Rose Hall.  “The Gallery” which honors the artists of Eureka Springs. Warm colors act as the backdrop for the original artwork of some of Eureka Springs’ top artists.  The guest room is an artist gallery that features a partially completed oil from Barbara Kennedy of two young boys laughing with glee on a working easel. Over the fireplace is a watercolor of 19th Century Eureka Springs by Larry Mansker.  There’s a soothing river scene in acrylic by Jody Stephenson and a series of oil paintings from John Willer.

Our guests can lay back in their bed or in the Jacuzzi and take in the original talent on display in their very own room.  Each time a guest returns to
”The Gallery” there will be new paintings to view.

Eureka Springs Artists Studio Tour

If you have spent anytime in Eureka Springs, you already know we have some outstanding artists in our community.  The 5th Annual Studio Tour will be held the weekend of September 24-26th this year.  It sounds like it is so far away, but it’s important to make reservations early as we are very busy that time of the year.

You have three wonderful days to visit the studios of 17 Eureka Springs Artists.  Some of them will be doing demonstrations and others are available just to chat about what and how they pursue their craft.  It’s great fun.  We’ll give you a map and away you go.  Some studios are in the heart of the Historic District and the search for others will be down a winding dirt trail unlike anything you’ve ever seen.   The tour is part education with a little adventure thrown in.  You can pack a picnic and find a cozy spot to have lunch in the middle of your journey.
