“Going Back in Time”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Eureka Springs is one of our regular get away spots. We have stayed at many places there and have found one, Arsenic and Old Lace, that we will continue to return to in the years that follow. The accomodations are from a slower quieter time and very prestine with the decorations and presentation. The Inn keepers are wonderful people that are joy to be around and they did everything they could to make our stay a perfect one.

We visit Eureka Springs relatively frequently. We always enjoy our visit there. Our host, Doug and Bev were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We felt welcomed and relaxed. We stayed in the Chantilly room, which had a balcony overlooking the back yard area. We enjoyed watching the variety of birds, squirrels, chipmunks and deer every morning and evening. Our bed was so comfortable we slept very well, which is usually difficult for us in a foreign bed. Arsenic and Old Lace is just far enough off the main stretch, it was quiet and peaceful, but close enough that we walked wherever we wanted to go.

Room Tip: If you're looking for comfort, relaxation and peacefulness, this is the place to stay.

Green Features: Doug and Bev, the owners, were very helpful in any way we needed.

We travel with three other couples once or twice each year and we try to stay at a B&B when we can. From the moment you pull up and check in to this delightful Bed and Breakfast, Doug and Beverly make sure every detail of your stay meets the highest standards. We had 4 couples staying at the Inn and so we were able to see 4 of the 5 suites. Each was unique and all were wonderful. The bed was very comfortable, the linens of the highest quality. The jetted tubs, the draperies, the remote control a/c, everything was of the highest quality.
One evening we stayed at the inn rather than go out for dinner and took advantage of the table and chairs in the back next to the fountain to share wine and snacks. We were visited by deer, chipmunks, squirrels and birds and the evening made its way into night. After a couple of mosquito bites we moved our group to the large wrap around porch with ceiling fans and spent the rest of the evening enjoying the view and the comfortable chairs.
Breakfast was wonderful both mornings, and Beverly shared her southern hospitality with us as we enjoyed our meal.
The one negative the whole weekend was waiting for the trolley which is supposed to be by within 20 minutes of calling, but didn't show up for almost 40 minutes. Other than that glitch, which was not the B&B's fault, the weekend was a wonderful getaway with friends at one of the very best B&Bs we have stayed in. I highly recommend this 'Select Registry' Bed and Breakfast!

Green Features: Doug and Beverly are obviously concerned about the environment, sharing with us their recycling practices and making available a large recycling container in the driveway for our use.

My husband and I stayed at the Arsenic and Old Lace B & B for our 42nd anniversary. We stayed in the Monet room which was very inviting and cozy. The bed was 'soooo' comfortable and the sheets on the bed made it feel like you were sleeping on a cloud. The bath had a large, two headed, shower and a jetted tub. The Monet room also had a nice deck which we put to good use in the evenings listening to the sounds of the evening. Our room as well as the whole establishment was immaculate. The breakfasts that Beverly and Doug served were absolutely delicious. We enjoyed watching the birds and the unusual 'gray and white' squirrels while having our breakfast. Doug and Beverly, the Inn Keepers, were friendly -- made you feel like you were at home. The information that Doug gave us concerning restaurants around town was quite useful. Another very positive attribute, as far as my husband and I were concerned, was that the establishment provides plastic bags in which our recyclables could be placed and these would be picked up the next day and properly disposed of. We definitely want to return to the Arsenic and Old Lace B & B, all the guest rooms are beautiful and we want to stay in all of them.

Green Features: I was pleasantly surprised when I saw that they small plastic sacks that we could put our recyclable items in. The recyclables were taken out the next morning when our room was freshened up. I have respect for establishments that provide this type of service.

We spent five wonderful and relaxing days and nights at the Arsenic and Old Lace Bed and Breakfast Inn. Our room was the Monet, which had a sweet little balcony, a fireplace, a shower for two, a BIG jetted tub (also for two) and all the comforts of home. It was very inviting and very clean!
Every morning we were served a delicious and unique breakfast, and every evening we were treated to a different baked snack. Doug and Beverly are the most wonderful people, and so easy to talk with. They welcomed us like old friends. Doug is also very knowledgeable in everything "Eureka Springs" from restaurants to history, to the locations of all the must see springs and attractions.

We had the most relaxing time! The room was quiet and felt secluded. We couldn't hear any of the other guests when in their rooms, the daily running of a home, nor the coming and going of people. It was like we had the whole house to ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed the garden and porches while watching the wildlife that came to the feeders.

We would definitely recommended this lovely and relaxing B&B getaway to friends and family.
Thanks Doug and Beverly!

Our 3-day vacation was perfect--down to the last detail. Doug and Beverly were so friendly, and the food was great. Having morning coffee on the beautiful veranda was wonderful. Their suggestions for local restaurants, shopping, the carriage ride, and sites of interest were perfect for us. We look forward to our next trip back.

We got married at AOL on May 11, 2013 and had the "Ultimate Wedding" package and that is exactly what it was! We stayed in the tree top suite and it was amazing. The accommodations were perfect. The breakfast was just awesome. The garden was beautiful. Our cake was so good! Doug and Beverly are super nice people and the inn is just perfect. Everything was taken care of down to my flowers and his boutonniere. The preacher was taken care of and everything was just great. I can't say enough great things about this place.
