"2017 BEST VRBO PROPERTY"
A VRBO member for only 5 years, this well appointed suite has 136 reviews, more than any other property over the same time period. Before you even go inside you realize this place is special. The custom deck offers an exquisite hot tub, in which you can star gaze through the sky portal in the deck above. Two tables for four present different perspectives of the forest below, and another on the upper deck gives you a heavenly view of the lake and the mountains beyond. All sorts of song birds are busy coming and going from the hanging bird feeder that seems to be floating in space. And everywhere you look is another potted or hanging plant. You will be impressed before you ever go inside.
Jack will walk you through the suite to explain the amenities and features, starting with a king bedroom with a comfy leather love seat, flat screen TV, and even a "white noise" fan for those who require it. The coffee corner is separate from either bedroom, and serves as a place to sit and talk while enjoying the art work. The adjoining hall displays four original drawings of St. Louis classics, and includes a 1906 photo of the original Farris wheel at the worlds fair.
The bathroom is efficient and exceptionally clean, with soft bath towels. But you don't have to use your bath towel for the hot tub, a nice big beach towel is provided. Of course extra toilet paper, bar soap, hair drier and even an iron come with the bath.
The kitchenette is just that, providing conveniences such as a choice of paper bowls and plates or glass bowls and plates. Plastic knives and forks or stainless, your choice. Great coffee cups, the kind that hold enough coffee so you can sit outside on the deck and wake up slowly. The microwave sits atop the small refrigerator that has three ice trays, and next to it is a tidy bar sink. Then there is a toaster, some complementary coffee (not packets), and the coffee maker (filters included). Eureka Springs which is only 15 minutes away, has some 50 restaurants and Jack will provide you with his list of some of the best, including their addresses and phone numbers making it easy to assure seating. The suites kitchenette is designed to warm up the goodies you bring back, not for full blown cooking in the suite, so leave your hot plate or portable surface grill at home please. However there is a charcoal grill on the deck where you can grille a steak or maybe some burgers.
The queen bedroom has a glass table with two chairs, an arm chair and of course the flat screen TV and "white noise" fan. Everything about this suite is class, from the antique brass lamp to the marble night table. I got the feeling of elegance when I went through for the first time and I think you will too. Special little things like literature on Eureka Springs and Beaver Lake, the most comfortable bed I've slept in, and the quiet, private, relaxing setting make this property #1.
The hot tub is an option; You can choose not to use it, or you can pay a deposit of $50 that you get back if you follow the hot tub rules and return it in the same condition as when you arrived.
This property is popular for honeymoons, anniversaries, families, and for a girls weekend get-a-way. If relaxing, quiet comfort is what you are looking for, this is the place.
Reservations should be made well in advance to guarantee the dates you desire.
FOR A SPECIAL TREAT. Jack does a private tour that lasts about an hour and a half, during which you will hear and see things that you otherwise would never see or hear. It's really special because you get to go down inside one of the original healing springs, go to the top of the Crescent (the most haunted hotel in America), and go across the only wooden suspension bridge in the State of Arkansas. The $50 fee covers everyone in the suite.
Jacks place offers guests the opportunity to experience a lifestyle Jack does everyday, that is a far cry from a motel or hotel. Anxious to help, Jack will join in and visit with you if you wish, but is very aware of your privacy needs. It's another world at Jacks place, and I wouldn't miss it for the world if I were you.
