Year-Round Ways to Relax

crescent hotelOnce 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, especially during the 2020 holiday season.

Here are four suggestions for this year’s holiday season to include in your escape to Eureka Springs this November and December:

1) Warmth – While it may be chilly outside while roasting a s’more around the campfire at the Frisco Sporting Club, 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 5 p.m. to 8 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.

2) Find Yourself With little time these days to take a deep breath and enjoy the moment, an escape to Eureka Springs is the path to finding yourself.  Enjoy any set of services that can help bring you back to center at the New Moon Spa & Salon.

Once relaxed, your recentering meditation can continue during a morning stretch, or step outside and travel at your own pace along the easy hiking trails that start and end at the Crescent.  Getting back to nature is as easy as walking out of the hotel’s front door of this mountaintop resort.

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.  No buyer’s remorse either, since the Crescent is offering you holiday friendly rates during this time of the year: a gift to your budget.

Beginning in December, the hotel will be festooned, both inside and out, for the Christmas season.  Everything from the inside traditional decor of a Victorian home to the more modern display of contemporary glittering lights artistically displayed on handcrafted monoliths that will make you feel like you are walking through a holiday fairyland.   Yes, Eureka Springs is Holiday Town, USA.

christmas at the crescentThe holiday season in this Ozark mountain village has more things to do than just seeing light displays.  In fact, outdoor activities during the holiday season are just as active as any other time of the year.  Beaver Lake plays host to awe inspiring eagle watches.  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.

So, this holiday 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.
