Year-Round Ways to Relax

Once famously stated, “Sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax.“  This is how that happens in Eureka Springs and at the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa.

Here are four suggestions for this year’s winter season to include in your escape to Eureka Springs:

1) Warmth – While it may be chilly outside while roasting a s’more around the campfire at outdoor skating rink, or on a mountain bike ride rolling along an Ozark hillside, warmth awaits back at the hotel proper.  Crescent guests can enjoy the hot tub outside the New Moon Spa or stretch out under the stars soaking your muscles in the 90 degree-plus “hot pool” prepared evenings from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Continue your evening with a hearty meal finished with a warm brandy before heading to your room to snuggle in one of our comfortable beds with your special someone.

3) Give a Gift to Yourself –   Perfect for you and uniquely found in Eureka Springs over the winter season is what everyone needs right now: a day of eclectic shopping, a fine meal, and a glass of wine.

Eureka Springs is your ideal host, with its nearly 100 local shops and galleries, none are a chain, none are big box, and a downtown that offers up to 21 restaurants, cafés, bars and bistros.

4) Every Day Is Different – With the change in season, so changes the many things to do in the Ozarks and at this mountaintop spa resort.

For a limited time, the Crescent Hotel returns one of the most popular activities in which this Historic Hotel of America has ever ventured: an outdoor skating rink with natural ice.  “We create lifetime memories,” said Jack Moyer, hotel executive vice president and general manager, “and that is the reason why our hotel decided to add a ‘frozen pond’ in our Fountain Garden.”  The rink and curling lane will be open, weather permitting, Thursday through Monday 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. as well as some extended hours on Saturdays.

The winter season in this Ozark mountain village continues to be active with mountain biking, soft day adventure hiking and eagle watching on Beaver Lake.  Downtown walking tours are far more pleasant than during the peak of the summer heat.  Turn-of-the-century architecture strolls reveal hidden treasures previously covered by the spring, summer and fall leaf canopies.

Indoor resort activities continue at the Crescent and are expanded to include appropriately spaced game rooms for challenging one another to your favorite board games or simply collaborating on putting together a stimulating puzzle.

crescent hotel checkers The darkness and quiet of winter only add to the thrill of staying on property to enjoy the greatest tour ever offered: the Crescent Hotel Ghost Tour.  This world-renowned encounter to the other side will introduce you to the more famous “guests who checked out but never left”, give you a chance to discover a few apparitions of your own, and finally will escort you on an eerie trip down into the macabre morgue.

So, this winter season, experience Eureka Springs and the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa where every day is warm, enlightening, rewarding and different.  In other words, every day is good… a great way to wind up 2020.

FAMILY FUN CONTINUES THIS WINTER AT THE 1886 CRESCENT HOTEL & SPA

           When ol’ man winter moves into the Arkansas Ozarks, families can still find fun at their favorite winter mountaintop spa resort hotel, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa. Why? Two great reasons: return of ice skating; and great food served family-style, something called ~La Cena.

  Ice Skating – The Crescent Hotel proudly announces that on Thursday, January 7 comes the return of one of the most popular activities in which this Historic Hotel of America has ever ventured: an outdoor skating rink with natural ice.  “We create lifetime memories,” said Jack Moyer, hotel executive vice president and general manager, “and that is the reason why our hotel decided to add a ‘frozen pond’ in our Fountain Garden.”  The rink and curling lane will be open, weather permitting, Thursday through Monday 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. as well as some extended hours on Saturdays.  “We have also created a festive environment adjacent to the rink,” Moyer added, “with a nightly fire pit as well as tables and chairs where the family, when off the ice, can gather and perhaps enjoy a hot cup of cocoa and other beverages from our refreshment stand.”  Both ice skating and curling (the Olympic sport of gliding “stones” from one end to the other, much like “frozen shuffleboard”) will take place during the open hours.  Ice skates in a wide range of adult and children sizes are available for rent.

           ~La Cena – And to give the family plenty of energy to glide across the ice skating rink comes ~La Cena (CHEE-nah).  This new dining concept is in keeping with the Italian tradition of the whole family gathering around the dinner table each evening for a sumptuous dinner and is now being served in the Crescent’s Crystal Dining Room Restaurant.  The hotel’s culinary team creates old-style Italian dishes, served in generous portions “family-style” so everyone at the table can “have a taste”.  And taste they will.  Shareable family entrees include: Spaghetti and Meatballs, Veggie Meatless Spaghetti, Classic Lasagna, Veggie Lasagna, Classic Chicken Alfredo, Chicken Pesto Alfredo, Lobster Shells and Cheese, Cioppino (a seafood stew), Chicken Carbornara-ish, and Mushroom Ravioli al Fresco.  If perhaps a pizza sounds perfect, pizza made famous upstairs in the hotel’s SkyBar Gourmet Pizza is also available downstairs at ~La Cena.  Menu varieties include Smokey BBQ Chicken, Carnivore, Herbivore, Bella Supreme, and Mediterranean.   ~La Cena is affordable and will fill the entire family with food and fond memories.  ~La Cena is being served Thursday through Monday evenings from 5 o’clock to 9 o’clock.  “To-Go” packaging is also available.

Locals’ Night and other special offers – Every winter Monday at both ~La Cena and the Crescent Hotel’s ice rink is “Locals’ Night”.  At ~La Cena, all kids 12 and under on those nights eat free with one complimentary children’s meal with a paid adult entrée.  For Carroll County residents on those same Monday nights, the skating rink offers free skating.  Another winter offer is that at ~La Cena, every Thursday through Monday night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with every entrée purchased a complimentary ice skating session will be given.

History of the Crescent Hotel Cats

For Decades Cats provide a “Purr-fect” Touch to The 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa

Recorded history of 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa shows that a feline has been one of the mainstays of their gift of hospitality to those who visit this Historic Hotel of America.  That history continues.
There may have been many other cats that walked the halls of this mountaintop spa resort since its grand opening on May 1, 1886, but it wasn’t until 1973 when hotel records show an orange tabby, named Morris, walked into the lobby and stayed… for 21 years.  This cat became such a fixture of the Crescent that he was referred to as “the general manager.”
“This cat became the cat of not only the hotel, but also the community,” a local resident recounts.  “During those years, no visit to the Crescent would be complete without a Morris sighting, or better yet, a chance to pet this hospitality icon.  And since the Crescent was -and continues to be- the center for so much community activity, their cat became our cat.  We loved it when we would see him enter and exit through his specially constructed kitty door.  The portal was flanked on both interior and exterior sides by carpeted steps to allow ease of coming and going.”
To further prove the heart-felt sentiments of local citizens toward this feline, when Morris died, more than 300 people attended his farewell ceremony held at the hotel.  His wake was followed by his interment on the hotel property.
“Today, visitors can step outside to our East Lawn area and see Morris’ headstone.  His photo and remembrance poem grace our lobby,” explained Jack Moyer, general manager of the Crescent. Read More…
 
That poem reads:
“In memory of Morris, the resident cat at The Crescent Hotel~
He filled his position exceedingly well.
The General Manager title he wore,
Was printed right there on his own office door.
He acted as greeter and sometimes as guide.
Whatever his duties, he did them with pride.
He chose his own hours and set his own pace,
The guests were impressed with his manners and grace.
Upstairs and down he kept everything nice.
 They might have had ghosts, but they never had mice.”


“Our guests seem to appreciate our love of animals even after their passing.  Some will stop in simply to see Morris’ final resting place,” Moyer added.
Marty and Elise Roenigk, upon purchasing the hotel in 1997, wanted to ensure that the hotel’s pet friendly legacy was carried forth.  Therefore, early in their proprietorship, a brown Siamese-mix feral cat named Tiddles, was welcomed into the hotel and stayed for a couple of years touching the hearts of thousands of hotel guests.
Upon Tiddles’ passing, Marty Roenigk purchased a white cat that proved not as social as his predecessors.  Spook, as some called him, was adopted finding another home.  For, as Marty said, “Some cats are not designed for the lodging industry.”
Feral cats seem to work best at “Arkansas’ Symbol of Hospitality”.  Two such critters that were born, nursed and then abandoned in the warm boiler room of the hotel in 2003 became the next hotel cats.  Their names: Frisco and Shadow.  These two female kitties played their parts very well.
Frisco was a sweet cat that loved to sleep with guests in their room, which often surprised members of the housekeeping staff if the nightly tenant failed to shoo the cat out into the hallway before checking out.   It could have been the six toes on each of her front paws that caused her to appear to be a uniquely endowed “ghost chaser”.  Frisco left the hotel in 2009.
Shadow, who was quite shy, put the hotel in the good paws of Frisco in 2007 when she departed the hotel for quieter, less trafficked environs.  And almost in the same swing of the cat door as Shadow exited, entered another feral feline, Rufus.
Rufus loved to be photographed, although no copies of his image can be found.  He had a crooked tale and loved wedding receptions.  All too often, to the chagrin of wedding guests, he would be “escorted out” by hotel banquet staff.  He left the hotel on the heels of Frisco in 2009.
That same year during Halloween week, the duo of Casper and Jasper strolled into “The Grand Ol’ Lady of The Ozarks”.  Casper, that loved to lounge in the lobby looking for rays of the sun and follow leashed canines throughout the lobby, decided to leave the hotel after a couple of years in residence leaving the purring responsibilities to Jasper, a role he holds even to this day.
It has been said by many that Jasper is a bit of a scoundrel.  This big, black, long-haired cat with white paws and chest, loves to hide under baggage carts, swat at passing shoelaces, but always staying out of sight.  He, like his predecessor Rufus, is a big wedding fan.  Anonymous staffers have said he has a penchant for white tablecloths, punch bowls and wedding cakes, although no photographic proof exists for those allegations.  One proven fact is that Jasper loves to curl up in the large lobby flowerpots, an action that always garners several, “Aw, honey, look… isn’t he cute!” guest comments.
One last annotation for cat lovers is that there is a good chance Crescent visitors of today can still meet the hotel’s feline patriarch, Morris.  It has been reported quite often by hotel guests, especially when they are seated in the lobby near Morris’ pictorial homage, that they have felt “a cat” rub up against their legs.  Audio recordings by several paranormal investigators have captured his warm purr which is “purr-fect” for America’s Most Haunted Hotel.

What’s to Come…Fall Travel

Crescent Hotel Is Ready for Fall Travelers

crescent hotel fallFollowing a most successful summer thanks to careful and responsible attention to the safety of guests during these pandemic days, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa now has turned its focus to be in ready for fall travelers.  For it is the fall of the year when this Historic Hotel of America sees its greatest influx of those wanting to escape to Eureka Springs and the Arkansas Ozarks.

“We are open to 100 percent capacity in our lodging offering,” said Jack Moyer, general manager and executive vice president, “while continuing to maintain protocols that reflect social distancing in our restaurants and ghost tours.  Our New Moon Spa & Salon will also keep its high-degree of safety for its customers to ensure peace of mind and wellness for its patrons.”

Eureka Springs itself has embraced Arkansas’ governor’s suggestions adding a community wide sense of wellness comfort which includes the wearing of masks.  This coupled with this village’s vast array of outdoor activities and opportunities make a fall visit to this popular destination even more inviting.

crescent hotel Located at the midpoint of open-space attractions like Beaver and Table Rock lakes; rivers such as the White, Kings and Buffalo; and a network of both easy and more challenging hiking and mountain biking trails that crisscross the community and its environs, Eureka Springs is ready for those fall visitors looking for safe distancing and a great getaway.  The Crescent itself boasts 15 acres of gardens and pristine woodlands for guests to enjoy this fall whether on their own or in taking part in the resort hotel’s list of daily activities.

Crescent Trail Hikers“It has become very clear that our strict adherence to safety protocols will continue to be the key element in our fall strategy,” Moyer explained.  “This promise to guests is so very important to our fall customers, especially those active seniors looking for their own, safe, Xanadu.”

Moyer noted some of the steps to be taken to welcome the traditional fall travel group, a group that tends to be a bit older and more conservative, “We plan to focus our activities on open spaces and the fresh air of the Ozarks.  Most resort activities will be narrowed to reduced capacity and by reservation only, the spa will continue temperature checks on arriving patrons, and preferential room blocks will be given so multiple guest travel parties can be closer to each other.  Smaller attendance size of events, such as weddings, will be maintained, and a Eureka Springs Guidebook, listing other shops, restaurants and attractions that share strict protocols, will be given to guests.”

  • Moyer went on to say that further specific considerations at the Crescent include:
  •  Patrons limited to 16 per each nightly ghost tour; but with multiple tours
  • Modified breakfast beginning at 7 a.m.
  • Shifting ~La Cena, the restaurant’s Italian-style dinner fare, to a 4 p.m. opening
  • Outdoor seating of balcony rooms divided side-to-side with canvas privacy separators.

crescent hotel “Those guests who choose to visit in the fall enjoy cooler temperatures, spectacular fall color, and an emphasis on open-air experiences,” Moyer concluded.  “Guests will be directed to adjacent driving tours of the region as well as scenic sojourns for those who might enjoy hiking or mountain biking, casual strolls, sightseeing and memorable dinners.  In other words, fall travelers can visit us in a relaxed frame of mind, ready to fully enjoy their days with us for our team of tourism professionals are dedicated to living up to our recognition as the ‘Symbol of Arkansas Hospitality’.”

Celebrate A Full Reopening 6/15

crescent hotel family

Eureka Springs’ two landmark historic hotels, the 1886 Crescent and the 1905 Basin Park, will be reopening to full service on Monday, June 15.  This comes on the heels of several successful “weekend only” careful openings at both properties.  Both properties will continue to strictly adhere to health safe protocols as set down by Governor Hutchinson and the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) during this reopening phase.

“Our guests are ready to come back to the places that have provided such wonderful lifetime memories and fun throughout the years.  Eureka Springs and our two hotels are such places.” said Jack Moyer, general manager and executive vice-president for both properties.  “This includes all of our services at both the Crescent and the Basin Park to our guests, patrons and friends.”

Welcome Back Room Rates

Returning and opening to full capacity in Arkansas’ mountaintop spa resort, the Crescent Hotel, will be nightly lodging, SkyBar Gourmet Pizza and scenic overlook dining, New Moon Spa & Salon, a full-slate of daily resort activities, and the ever-popular Crescent Hotel Ghost Tours.  The planning for weddings at the Crescent’s numerous venues has also been opened for gatherings up to 50 total attendees.

basin park hotel

Downtown Eureka Springs’ centerpiece, the Basin Park Hotel, will also be swinging its doors fully on June 15 offering guests an even more enjoyable experiential visit than in years past.  This follows the recent redevelopment of this seven-story epicenter in the heart of the entertainment district.

“Key to our redevelopment were such projects as upgrading our nightly lodging with the addition of two-bedroom suites,” Moyer noted.  “These suites offer not only a bedroom on either side but an expanded common area and the inclusion of a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The Basin Park Hotel now has 26 suites with tubs.”

Spa1905 Spa Deck

Moyer went on to explain another project was the continued expansion of Spa1905.  Added were highly comfortable and sharply designed spa suites for guests who want to immerse themselves into the spa experience.  Guests who stay in a spa suite enjoy added service and amenities, exclusive hot tub access and are just footsteps away from the plethora of services and treatments that Spa1905 offers.  Located just outside the spa on the same floor is the magnificent new outdoor gathering space, set aside a limestone bluff.  This space includes an outdoor hot tub, fire pit and patio furnishings with only the sky overhead.

Jack Rabbett's Whisky Bar

A totally new addition to Eureka Springs’ downtown scene is Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar offering the casual atmosphere of a living room featuring plush, comfortable seating, a fireplace, pool tables, and walls of big screen televisions.  This downtown getaway is located just down the hallway from the highly popular Balcony Restaurant & Bar, also being fully reintroduced, with its alfresco seating that overlooks downtown on one side and Basin Spring Park on the other.

“We have also placed a resort host, seated in the lobby, to guide guests to everything fun and exciting to see and do in Eureka Springs plus introducing hotel guests to the well-developed list of daily programming,” said Moyer, “which includes such activities as whisky tastings in Jack Rabbett’s, theater-style showing of movies, and a morning stretch on the roof.  Not many hotels around the country allow guests to welcome the day from their rooftop.”

Basin Park Hotel Ghost Tour

The paranormal aspect of the Basin Park Hotel has not been overlooked.  In development and soon to be offered, both hotel guests and visitors to Eureka Springs will be treated to not only hearing tales that occurred inside the limestone and pink dolomite walls of this historic structure but they will also be able to partake in a unique investigation from the roof to the depths of the hidden cave.  Ticketing for this adventure is available through ReserveEureka.com.

“Safety and compliant protocols will continue as suggested by the AHD when we fully open for business as usual beginning by this mid-June date,” concluded Moyer.  “We join our local hospitality partners as Eureka Springs returns for the full enjoyment of guests and visitors on June 15.  It will be the experience you remember.”

Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge

Numerous attractions will be open by this time.  Attractions that include the Great Passion Play, Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, Thorncrown Chapel, Eureka Springs Brewery, Escape Room 13, Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway, Float Eureka, Ozark Mountain Ziplines, Turtle Back Ridge Family Fun Park, Cosmic Cavern, Onyx Cave, Quigley’s Castle, Promised Land Zoo, Eureka Springs Historical Museum, and Eureka Springs Tram Tours.  This is in addition to Eureka Springs’ host of outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, water sports on this Ozark village’s two lakes and three rivers, and/or just sitting in the city’s numerous parks just living in the moment and people watching, a favorite pastime of visitors and residents alike.

Special events will be returning to Eureka Springs as well.  A full calendar of these special day activities can be found at EurekaSpringsOnline.com.
