Fall For Eureka Springs… It’s Color-full!

Every fall in the Arkansas Ozarks, two things happen.  First, the leaves of the hardwoods covering the majestic hills and adjoining hollows morph from emerald green to the fiery hues of orange, violet, gold and red.  Second, seasoned travelers who enjoy seeing this colorful transition up close and personal go in search of a cottage that places them right in the middle of this seasonal segue.  The mountain village of Eureka Springs is well known for accommodating visitors looking for satisfaction on both points with the bonus of unbeatable weather and plentiful events and attractions.

“Arkansas’ fall foliage is recognized nationally as a top ten destination for its color and magnificence with The Ozarks as its crowned jewel,” said Jack Moyer, general manager of the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa, a Historic Hotel of America, “and as a further enhancement we have added to our overnight hospitality offering by adding adjacent cottages to our existing, five-story, nineteenth century structure.”

Moyer added, “At the Crescent, we recognized the demand for upscale lodging, allowing couples to travel together, with access to hotel services but guaranteeing the peace and quiet that a natural setting in the woods provides.  And since The Crescent Hotel is blessed with 15 mountaintop acres, known as Crescent Park, we were able to carve out just enough woodland to strategically place our four two-bedroom cottages amid the trees thereby protecting their remote nature.  Treetop cottages surrounded by an urban forest.  The reaction of our guests to these E. Fay Jones-style structures has been consistently positive and complimentary.”

Crescent Cottages are neighbors to their sister property, Lookout Cottage Estate, in-town upscale cottages that are secluded and each with its own unique and historic ambiance.  Both are located within simple walking distance to the historic, main structure of the Crescent offering guests the reciprocal opportunity to enjoy all in-hotel amenities like the restaurants, New Moon Spa & Salon, daily resort activities and the famous Crescent Hotel Ghost Tour.  However, the cottages are tucked away far enough for guests to enjoy the peace and quiet of a hidden mountain hideaway.

For those guests who enjoy a woodland adventure right outside their front door, both Crescent Cottages and Lookout Cottage Estate are located adjacent to the newly opened Harmon Park Loop, a 1.4-mile loop trail for hiking and mountain biking.  The Harmon Park Loop connects to the city playground, its dog park, and links to the city’s master trail system including Lake Leatherwood City Park.

Sleeping With A Ghost…

…is guaranteed during the month of October at America’s Most Haunted Hotel as every room -even Michael’s Room 218 (said to be the most active room in the hotel)- will have a “ghost” on the bed welcoming guests as they enter.

 “America’s Most Haunted Hotel”, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, is giving overnight guests during the month of October a guarantee that they can sleep with a ghost.   The ghost of the guarantee may not be of the paranormal kind but a “ghost” nonetheless.

“When guests check in to the 1886 Crescent Hotel, the question most often asked when handed their key is ‘Is there a ghost in this room?’  Well, during the month of October, Crescent front desk clerks can cheerfully answer ‘Yes!’,” said Jack Moyer, hotel vice president and general manager.

The 1886 Crescent Hotel, a proud member of Historic Hotels of America, has been featured on nearly 10 nationally syndicated paranormal television shows in as many years and is regularly listed at or near the top of all haunted hotel lists found online.  “USA Today has featured our hotel in full-page articles twice and NBC’s Today Show has mentioned our property on numerous Halloween versions of their morning broadcast,” Moyer added.  “However, the best national exposure of our ‘guests who check out but never leave’ was when Syfy’s highly popular Ghost Hunters program captured a full body apparition here on their thermal imaging camera while conducting an on-site investigation.  They called it ‘the holy grail of ghost hunting’.”

Throughout the years, many guests have reported seeing, hearing or feeling an apparition in their room during their overnight stay at the 1886 Crescent.  Some have even described those sensations in or around the bed while sleeping.

“It was the frequency of these random encounters that encouraged us to offer every overnight guest during this October such an experience,” explained Moyer, “even though in a somewhat whimsical manner.  We will be decorating each sleeping room with a cute, cuddly, three-foot by two-foot by one-foot white plush ghost to hang on to during the sleeping hours.  A paranormal security binkie has never taken a more delightful form.”

Moyer concluded, “As an added bonus, if any guest wants to take home one of these snuggly ghosts, they will be available in our hotel gift shop.”

8 Thrilling Motorcycle Rides

“Bikes, Blues & Bar-B-Q” 2016

Just in time for the more than 400,000 riders coming to the 2016 version of Northwest Arkansas’ highly-popular “Bikes, Blues & BBQ” motorcycle rally, September 21-24 comes three new “loop” rides that bikers will love to lean into!  Starting and ending in Eureka Springs, which is only 45 minutes east of Fayetteville, are the three new loops: Peel Ferry, Arkansas Dragon’s Tail, and War Eagle Mill.   These have been added to the much-ridden “Big 5” of Eureka Springs: Goldwing/Highway 21; Beaver Town Bridge; Jasper; Highway 103; and the number one motorcycle ride in America, The Pig Trail.  Each offers outstanding curves, switchbacks, hairpins, scenery and panoramas.  And each of these loops is a day’s ride or less.

The Peel Ferry loop takes riders north into Missouri; east through highways carved out of limestone peel ferry rideand into world-famous Branson; then further east and south into Arkansas.  There, along the banks of Bull Shoals Lake, bikes will board Peel Ferry that runs during daylight hours the year-round and is the only existing ferry that plies any Arkansas river or lake.  Serpentine highways wind past Bull Shoals southward to U.S. Highways 412 and 62 leading riders back to Eureka Springs.  This ride is approximately a 200 mile / 5 hour sojourn.

The Arkansas Dragon’s Tail loop takes riders south and east of Eureka Springs through the hills-n-hollers shared with such topographic notables as the Buffalo River National Park, America’s only river ever designated as a national park, and the “Arkansas Grand Canyon”.  At the bottom of the dragons-tailloop is the little historical community of Lurton that sits along the old wagon trail that was known as the Chisum (sic) Turnpike.  On either side coming down or going back up toward Eureka Springs, riders will be “passin’ thru” Western Grove; Mt. Judea (pronounced “Judy”); Ponca and its herds of grazing elk; and Howe Hollow valley.  Total round trip is 177 miles or approximately four hours of travel time.

The third “new” loop is called The War Eagle Mill and war-eagle-milltimes out at one hour and 16 minutes with 54 miles being logged to and fro Eureka Springs.  “What makes this short loop so awesome,” said one rider, “is that it leaves plenty of time to eat, shop or just relax in the rustic charm of the mill itself.”  War Eagle Mill is one of America’s last operating undershot, burrstone gristmills that sits over War Eagle Creek.  Here riders can watch product being made, taste some that has been baked up in the mill’s Bean Palace restaurant, take plenty of product home or have it shipped.  The loop also takes riders in, around and through Hobbs State Park and Conservation Area, 12 thousand acres of pristine Arkansas woodlands.

The Goldwing/Highway 21 loop encourages riders to leave Eureka Springs early to see the sunrise goldwingover amazing vistas like the Bluebird Hill Overlook.  As this loop continues along its 269-mile and six-hour route, it takes riders through the Buffalo River National Park and a chance to watch grazing elk near Boxley and Lost Valley.  An eagle could be spotted overhead as riders near Kingston and the “Arkansas Grand Canyon”.

Curvy roads and historic bridges carry riders over the White River and Beaver Lake on the Beaver Town Bridge loop beaver-townwith great views of the water.  Riders have perhaps a once in a lifetime experience as they encounter one of the true treasures of the Southern road.  The historic Beaver Bridge, best known as the “Little Golden Gate of Arkansas”, was built in 1949, is 554 feet long but only 11 feet wide thereby only allowing one way at a time traffic.  This is quite a large return for a ride that is only 26 miles and 44 minutes.

The Jasper loop is another route that takes riders through the Buffalo River National Park and jasper-rideacross the 1930’s iron truss Pruitt Bridge.  Two stops during the 150-mile/four-hour ride could be the Elk Education Center in Ponca and the Ozark Café on the town square in Jasper.

Riders are in store for a potpourri of wildlife opportunities on the Highway 103 loop.  Big cats, up close and personal, at Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, and a trout hatchery and fishing stream at Roaring River State Park, just over the line in Missouri.  All of this with the added dividend of Ozark scenery is part of the 142 miles and 4 hours invested.

But the cherry on top of the Eureka Springs’ loops’ sundae is the internationally famous Pig Trailpig-trailThis ride is as challenging as it is scenic.  Switchback after switchback between hairpin turns makes this ride a “must do” event when riding in Northwest Arkansas.  The Designated Scenic Highway portion of Arkansas Highway 23 is truly breathtaking.  Stops in Withrow State Park and alongside the Mulberry River allow riders to catch their breath and relax in beautiful, natural surroundings.  Many riders say that this loop is the best seven hours and 280 miles of their riding lives.

For more information about all eight of these loops designed for motorcyclists, one should go to EurekaSpringsMotorcycleRides.com.

Eureka Springs Tells People To “Get OUT (side)!”

Within a twenty mile radius of Downtown, the greater Eureka Springs’ area offers convenient accessibility to a wealth of outdoor activities such as Beaver Lake, Table Rock Lake, Kings River, White River, Thorncrown Chapel, Blue Springs Heritage Center, Black Bass Lake, Lake Leatherwood, the Hogscald and Big Clifty areas, plus Holiday Island. For even more activities within this area, there are numerous providers: Ozark Mountain Ziplines, scenic horseback riding stables, Starkey Park Marina, Beaver Dam Site Park, the 12,000-acre Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area, Madison County Game Refuge, War Eagle Mill, War Eagle Cavern, Onyx Cave, Cosmic Caverns, Roaring River State Park and Trout Hatchery, the Mark Twain National Forest with miles of ATV trails, Buffalo National River, Dogwood Canyon, Beaver Town, and the Pea Ridge National Military Park.  All are examples of the excellent outdoor adventures waiting to be experienced, and all of these places are just a short drive away when anyone chooses “America’s Victorian Village” as their extraordinary escape vacation hub.

Outdoor Adventure Week & Lake Leatherwood Day

Although many of these outdoor wonders are accessible and enjoyable the year-round, many are at their peak during the months of spring, especially late April and early May. This is when The Ozarks’ hillsides are all abloom and fully green with temperatures comfortably mild.  Here is a little bit more about some of these attractive spring attractions:

  • Eureka Springs is known for its rugged landscape making it a mountain biking haven. The truth is, experienced mountain bikers and those who are just getting into it will find that Eureka Springs has something to offer for all levels and interests. Adventure Mountain Outfitters is the local cycling authority and offers rentals, repairs and comprehensive information on the sport. The reason is clear why Eureka Springs is the home of major events like the Fat Tire Festival.
  • Whether you have 30 minutes or all day, hiking in and around Eureka Springs is spectacular. Easily accessible trails are located near most Eureka Springs lodging. For some light hiking, try following some of the city historic trails marked by historic plaques; discover the dozens of historic natural springs flowing full from springtime rain; or explore Eureka Springs prettiest street, Spring Street “boulevard”. For day hiking, consider hiking along Lake Leatherwood trails or visit Blue Spring Heritage Center.
  • Record crowds will again fly high over The Ozarks as they experience the exhilarating thrill of a zip line canopy tour right in the heart of the beautiful, pristine Ozark Mountains of Eureka Springs. Screams of delight and thunder of excited laughter from patrons of Ozark Mountain Ziplines will pierce the woodland silence as they soar through the air from up to 300 feet high with cable lengths up to 2,000 feet long over vast gorgeous, beautiful Ozark hardwood trees and limestone cliffs.
  • Black Bass Lake is a natural area located on 200 hidden acres and only a quarter of a mile from the heart of downtown Eureka Springs.  Black Bass Lake presently has two-and-a-half miles of hiking trails although construction has begun to connect the trails between Black Bass Lake and Lake Leatherwood.  In addition to hiking, Black Bass Lake offers a historic and picturesque dam, beautiful scenery, and great fishing on the lake itself.  This is a perfect spot to spend a warm afternoon taking in the wonders of nature.
  • A little south of Eureka Springs, there is the Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, a safe haven for big cats such as tigers, lions, leopards, and cougars.  Additionally, they have bears and other animals that visitors can watch for an extraordinary wildlife adventure.  Turpentine Creek also hosts Eureka’s Annual Kite Festival.
  • Not far from Turpentine Creek, sits Quigley Castle, a unique dwelling built for a woman -by that woman- who wanted to bring nature indoors.  The one-of-a-kind structure was hand-constructed with rocks and stones she collected from all over the world.
  • Just off Arkansas Highway 12, War Eagle Mill is a scenic place and home to not only the Bean Palace Restaurant but also one of America’s most successful craft shows.  The mill sits alongside War Eagle Creek, which drives their burrstone wheel, and home for fishing and for feeding the ducks.
  • Nearby War Eagle Cavern offers a bat’s eye view of stunning underground scenery, nature paths, gem and fossil panning, and lodging.
  • Beaver Lake, west of Eureka, has 500 miles of shoreline alone.  It boasts some of the best fishing in the area, with many fishing tournaments held annually.  Visitors can kayak, catch a trophy bass, striper, or walleye, and then relax in one of the many parks offering camping, picnicking, and swimming.  This crystal-clear lake is the fifth most visited lake in the country that is operated the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
  • Starkey Park offers camping, a marina and boat launch, fishing, water sports, eagle watch, pavilion and is home to The Belle of the Ozarks, a “ship” offering wonderful sightseeing excursions including those that “set sail” to do some seasonal eagle watching.
  • The Dam Site Park is one of the most popular parks in the area and is located near Beaver Dam. From this are guests may enjoy sailing, power house tours, fishing, scuba diving, and driving tours.
  • At C&J Sports, located near Beaver Dam, guests can make their way through an excellent archery course, or play a game of paintball.  Scuba diving is offered and quite popular in the clear waters of Beaver Lake.
  • The White River, also west of Eureka Springs, is known for some of the best trout fishing anywhere.  There are stores in the area that are well equipped to outfit anyone wishing to have an adventure on the White River, whether it is fishing, canoeing, kayaking, camping, or anything else a visitor can dream up.
  • A little farther out U.S. Highway 62 West, Blue Spring Heritage Center is on the National Register of Historic Places, and has been drawing visitors since 1948.  Thirty-eight million gallons of clear water pour out daily into the trout filled sparkling blue lagoon below.  Blue Spring with its unique bluff shelter was part of the Trail of Tears upon which Cherokee and other Native American tribes traveled to their new, designated home in Oklahoma.
  • Near Blue Spring, Inspiration Point rises high above the White River valley, and has a spectacular view that beckons guests to pull off the road and take in the tranquil scenery.
  • E. Fay Jones globally award-winning Thorncrown Chapel, also known as the “glass chapel”, is home to thousands of weddings each year and can be seen peeking out through the treetops west of Eureka.  Its distinctive architecture proudly displays 425 windows and 6,000 square feet of glass with interior acoustics that must be heard to be believed.
  •  Traveling east of Eureka Springs, the choices in outdoor activities are abundant.  The Kings River is waiting to show guests some beautiful scenery.  This river is about 90 miles long, and has many attractive features, such as colorful bluffs, unique flora and fauna, and is a fine place to watch for wildlife.  Many eagles have been spotted along the banks of the Kings.  The small-mouth bass fishing is excellent, as are the float trips in a canoe or kayak.
  • Caving offers abundant venues in the greater Eureka area.  For example, Onyx Cave, which was discovered in 1891, is one of the oldest show caves in Arkansas.  They offer tours that include beautiful underground formations.  Cosmic Caverns, close to Berryville, has many one-of-a-kind natural wonders.  It has been named one of the top 10 show caves in the U.S. with its two underground bottomless lakes (lakes in which divers have never found the bottom), one of which features cave trout.  Rare, blind cave salamanders sometimes show themselves during tours at nearby Cosmic Caverns.
  • Still on the east side of town, visitors can experience one of the best ways to enjoy the scenery of The Ozarks via horseback.  Red Bud Riding Stables, a family-owned business, has been showing folks around the “hills-n-hollers” on horseback for more than 20 years.  The hospitable guides at Red Bud are knowledgeable about plant and animal life, and the trails cover a variety of terrain on the privately owned wildlife preserve.
  • Also for enthusiastic equestrians, the Dinner Bell Ranch & Resort is a place where the horseback rides are suitable for all ages and skill levels.  The trails offer spectacular panoramic views, as well as possible wildlife sightings.  Riders can choose from many different types and lengths of rides, anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours.   Guests can have a real outdoor experience with breakfast, lunch, or dinner rides where a tasty meal is cooked up over a campfire.
  • Back to the west, the town of Beaver is one of those charming little spots where visitors love to explore.  The history there is rich with old trails and the much-photographed Beaver Town Bridge.  This “Little Golden Gate” bridge is a 554-foot single-lane expansion over the White River.  The Beaver Recreation Park is located here, with camping, floating, RV Park, boat launch and a quaint little store.  Rock Climbing is a popular sport in this area.

Jack Moyer, general manager of the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa with its surrounding 15 acres of forested hillsides and manicured gardens and the 1905 Basin Park Hotel that sits in the midst of a web of urban trails, stated, “We are adamant supporters of Eureka Springs’ great outdoors. In fact, we tell our guests and visitors to ‘Just get out!’. We of course mean it as our invitation for them to ‘Get outdoors!’ while they are visiting us, encouraging them to enjoy all of the wonderful outdoor sights and activities our glorious region offers, especially in late April and early May.”
