Snugglin’ by the Fireplace

FallBlog-GalleryFireplace-9135411We’ve lit the fireplaces and brought out the hot chocolate at The Inn at Rose Hall and The Peabody House.  Lake Lucerne Resort is primed with freshly stacked firewood for our cottages with wood burning fireplaces.  It’s in the 70’s in the daytime, which is the perfect temperature to wander the hills and drops to the 40’s in the evenings.
As you walk in The Inn at Rose Hall you can smell the Pumpkin Bread baking or you just might be arriving when the Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Carmel Sauce is coming out of the oven.  Once you have tasted it you will absolutely have to take the recipe home with you.  Fall has it’s own special colors and smells.
It’s a great time to take a break as it won’t be long before the Holidays will be here.  Be sure to make your reservations soon.  We still have a few rooms and cottages available.

Eureka Springs Dresses Up for Fall

One of those perfect fall days.

Eureka Springs is putting on a splendid show this fall.  The trees are ablaze in reds, yellows, and greens.  When you consider the drought conditions we experienced this summer, it’s amazing to see how pretty our hills look.

Yesterday we took the three dogs for a walk around the cottages at our Lake Lucerne Resort to check out the leaves and feed our geese.  The dogs ran ahead of us on the trails and pounced on each other in the piles of leaves like small children.

Christmas Celebrations in our Victorian Village-Eureka Springs

It’s our favorite weekend of the year and it all begins this Friday, December 2nd. You don’t want to miss a minute of this weekend. Be sure to arrive in Eureka Springs early enough to check in to your room before the festivities begin.  As a guest of our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast you will leave The Inn at Rose Hall with a portable cup of steaming hot chocolate to sip on your way to the festivities.

Stroll down Spring Street, which is magical with Christmas lights and decorations at all of the Springs and the Victorian Homes.  Even the stores are participating with Living Christmas Windows from 3PM until parade time at 6PM.

The evening parade is unlike any you have ever seen. It’s an electric parade—maybe not like Disneyland—but it has a lot of personality—Eureka style.  There will be dozens of floats created by our merchants, schools and groups of individuals that get together to express their joy of the season. Several marching bands from surrounding towns have joined the celebration over the years.   The parade really demonstrates what a warm-hearted community we live in.

Saturday, December 3, 2011 is the Christmas Tour of Homes from 3PM-8PM.  Each year a number of the Victorian Homes open their doors for the Christmas Tour of Homes.  The trolleys shuttle people from the designated parking area to the beginning of the tour.  There you can stroll from one home to another where guides dressed in Victorian finery tell you about the history of each home.  And of course, along the way there is always a place to stop and enjoy some Christmas cookies.

Tickets are available at the Eureka Springs Chamber of Commerce (516 Village Circle, 479-253-8737), the Eureka Springs Historical Museum (95 South Main Street, 479-253-9417), or conveniently online!  Advance sale tickets are $15; day of tour, $20.

Art Festival in Eureka Springs

The month of May is all about art in Eureka Springs in all its many forms.

The May Arts Festival kicked off with the ArtRageous Parade the first weekend of the month.  This artful and sometimes outrageous parade rolled through downtown Eureka Springs featuring colorful floats, walkers, bands looking ArtRageous as only Eureka can.  Winner of the best costume award went to Mark Hughes of Regalia as “Butterfly Boy.”  Glad we didn’t have to vote…as you can see there were some incredible costumes.

Tomorrow evening, Friday, May 20th is the White Street Studio Walk.

White Street, on the upper historic loop has a number of artists that welcome you into their homes and studios to view their newest creations.  There will be more than forty guest artists who will be set up in homes, studios, on porches and on the street.  It’s a giant block party honoring Eureka Springs Artisans from 4PM until 10PM.

Saturday evenings in May the major Art Galleries are open from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM. Stroll from gallery to gallery, enjoy refreshments and talk with their featured artist.

All month from 10:00AM to 5:00 PM The Queen Anne Mansion is featuring a fabulous show featuring local artists.  You can tour the renovated Queen Anne Mansion and then go downstairs to the gallery space in the garden level of the building.  You will feel like you have stepped into a world-class art exhibit.  There are works from 50 painters, photographers, wood workers and sculptors on display.  You will be amazed to see the quality and breadth of art from the local artists here in Eureka Springs.  We can guarantee you will be impressed with the quality of artistic talent in this tiny quirky town in the heart of the Ozarks.

Parade Fever in Eureka Springs

There is no group of people on the planet that love a good parade more than the residents of Eureka Springs, Arkansas.  We probably have more parades each year in our little village than any other city in the country.  Last month was our Mardi Gras Parade (pictured here) that was a tremendous success. It was a bitter, cold day but the streets were lined with fun-loving locals and visitors just having a good time.

 

The next parade is the ArtRageous Parade May 1st at 2PM in downtown Eureka Springs.  It’s the Kick-Off for the May Festival of the Arts. The parade theme—Go Hawg Wild!  The theme alone guarantees a good time for both visitor and local alike.  People will be dressed up as flowers to honor the month of May, or as artists, or maybe even a work of art.  You won’t see another parade like this…guaranteed.  If you love art and want to have fun put us on your “Must Do List” for May.

 

 

Chocolate in Eureka Springs

What’s not to like if it is chocolate?  Valentines’ Day is coming up and it gives us all an excuse to indulge in all forms of chocolate.  Here at The Inn at Rose Hall our guests will be greeted with a steaming cup of the most decadent hot chocolate and then we’ll just keep chocolate treats coming.

If your in Eureka Springs this weekend and you’re a chocolate aficionado, you want to remember the 7th Annual Chocolate Lovers’ Festival being held at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks in the Convention Center on Saturday, February 12th from 9AM to 3PM.   Here you will be able to indulge in chocolate cakes, cookies, ice cream, multiple dipping fountains, beverages and more.  It’s the ultimate chocolate experience.

Admission will be $10 for adults and $6 for children age six and under.

The Holidays in Eureka Springs

Eureka Springs for the holidays.  All year long we tell our guests at The Inn at Rose Hall about this weekend. It’s filled with Eureka magic and holiday cheer.  All of us look forward to the first weekend in December.

 The festivities start Friday, December 3 from 3:00-5:30PM when area residents dressed in period costumes become “living mannequins” and step into the local merchants windows.  It’s like looking at a living post card in every window.

 At dusk the lights begin to turn on and you get a true sense of real holiday spirit. It appears people are ready to celebrate the season as there are a lot of lights all over town this year.  We always decorate our Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast with Christmas garlands and lights winding down the staircase.  It’s very pretty.

 At 6PM the annual Christmas Parade begins to make it’s way down Spring Street. Our guests leave The Inn for the parade bundled up with a hot chocolate to help keep them warm.  For a small town Eureka Springs certainly knows how to throw a parade.  Their are floats all lit up, lots of locals in Victorian costume, bands and thousands of lights making their way down the hill.

The next day, Saturday, December 5 the Candlelight Tour of Homes opens from 3:00-8:00PM.  It’s an opportunity to tour some of Eureka Springs’ finest old homes dressed for the holiday season.  Admission for advance tickets is $15, day of tour $20.  The money collected from the tour goes to our Preservation Society that is refurbishing the fountain at Basin Park.

Join us.  We would love to see you and share the holiday cheer.
