About Sharon McDuffey

I am a professional who works hard at my career. I totally understand what it means to "break away" from the work routine and escape for a romantic weekend or an outing with the girls. Cottage On The Hillside is just the place for that unique and special getaway weekend or relaxing time together as a family. This Cottage is set up with all the comforts of "home" and is yours for the taking.

This was the 2nd stay at the Cottage on the Hillside and we truly loved it. Everything from meeting the delighful owner Sharon and all of the wonderful accommodations from the tasty welcome lemon pound cake to watching the white squirrels while sitting on the covered porch drinking coffee and visiting. Our stay was just too short! We love the town, atmosphere and the cottage and will be back time and time again if the good Lord is willing. Thank you Sharon.

Cozy, convenient and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was the 4th time to stay in this cottage. So, needless to say, it's an all-time favorite that keeps us coming back. The location is perfect for a short, leisurely stroll into the downtown area. The owner (who is as charming as the cottage) has made some nice improvements since our last visit. The cottage has everything you need for a memorable stay. We'll be coming back again and again!

Property was well kept and inviting.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in Eureka Springs and enjoyed our stay at the Cottage on the Hill. We arrived to find treats on the table and a very clean and well kept property. The home owner has her guests best interests at heart, making things easy like, labeling light switches and directions on how to operate the televisions and dvd players, etc. This made the stay at our "Home Away" feel like home.

"When in Rome"

  • 5 of 5

All of my trips to Eureka had been spent in busy hotels and we would just drive around to look at the houses!! This time we actually decided to stay in one! Best decision! We had a party of 5 and all slept and "lived" in the house comfortably during our 3 night stay! The house provided the perfect accommodations!! Thank you for making this experience top notch!!

Great Little Hillside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had to be in Eureka Springs for a family wedding and needed a place to settle in. Sharon McDuffey's "Cottage on the Hillside" was great, it had all the amenities we needed and was conveniently located. The banana bread that greeted us was a pleasant surprise!

We would definitely contact Sharon again if we need to visit Eureka Springs in the future.
