It would be an amazing adventure for your 9 yo. Rooms run $150/night based on double occupancy, $20 per person per night extra. Admission into the refuge is included in the cost of your lodging with guided walking tours daily, every hour on the hour from 10am-4pm. If you didn't want to walk, we offer guided trolley tours that run every hour on the half hour, 10:30-3:30. The refuge is open from 9am-6pm and you're free to walk the property at your leisure. A light complimentary breakfast is kept in your refrigerator for the mornings you're with us. We don't have any dining facility on site so you'd need to go into Eureka Springs (7 miles from the refuge) for lunch/dinner. We currently do not have Wi-Fi on site, just so you're aware. Our Siberian and Bengal suites sleep 4 comfortably and family friendly for kids of all ages. Our Tree House sleeps up to 4 but children must be 5 yo to stay. The "safari" promotion would not work for you simply because it's for our Safari Lodges that are adult only, 18+yo, due to liability reasons with the hot tub.

Please let us know if we can help book your stay! We look forward to seeing you!

We stayed at the refuge at the end of March 2014. We stayed in the Siberian room and I HIGHLY recommend it!!!! It was absolutely incredible. To look out your window and see three gorgeous tigers frolic, sleep and pace around was priceless. 150$ was nothing compared to that memory!!! The your guide we had was phenomenal, telling us about every one of them.

Through September 31, 2014, you can book a Safari Lodge for $100 per night. This includes the cost to visit the refuge which is normally $20 per person.

To book the Safari Lodge, you must book Online and use the coupon code word "safari".

The refuge offers tours each hour. You can take a walking tour which is part of the admission cost, or a trolley tour for $5 more. Either tour has knowledgeable tour guides who will talk about the animals.

You can hear the lions caroling late night and early morning. This is a great place to visit.

It is a great place to stay and you can go on tours and the staff is more than happy to tell you about the animals . The rooms are great in the 150.00 a night price range but well worth it.

Agree with other answer. There is a large area to walk and there is a tour bus also. The room may seem pricey, but it all supports the refuge. If you decide not to stay on site, or it is not available, there are plenty of places in Eureka Springs. I would highly recommend the lodges on site.

It is DEFINATELY a great place for a 9 year old. The staff gives talks twice a day and the tour of the habitats are narrated so you gets lots of information on each animal. Kids are allowed in the 2 rooms on the compound and in the treehouse. All are great rooms and cost $150 a night per room and I think they sleep 4. Admission is free when you spend the night too. A very positive place for kids. They also have camp sites. You can hear the lions carol all night. It is amazing. Hope you enjoy your trip there.
