Eureka Springs cottage description
Experience Eureka Springs the same way residents did over one hundred years ago...in this lovely home in the very heart of Eureka's Historic District.
Built in 1885, this cottage is in the National Register of Historic Homes and is one of the finest examples of the many beautifully restored Historic Victorian homes of this era. It is furnished with many period antiques.
You will find that The Bodie House is a charming Victorian cottage with all the gingerbread trim, located in the heart of the Historic District. You are mere steps (next door) from the trolley stop or a short stroll to the historic downtown for fine dining, unique shops, boutiques and art galleries. Should you decide to venture out for some hiking, horseback riding, boating or fishing, all are found close by. Eureka Springs is surrounded by lakes, rivers, streams and even caves, all just minutes from the Bodie House.
This Historic Victorian cottage is beautifully furnished including a full kitchen and laundry room. Hi speed wireless internet, flat screen high definition TV, DVD, and CD/FM/AM stereo add to your enjoyment. The private deck overlooks and has a full view of the Eureka Springs Valley and the Christ of the Ozarks. A friendly front porch is perfect for people and parade watching. Or, if you like, just enjoy a quiet moment experiencing the natural beauty of Eureka Springs at the Bodie House.
A dining room offers a cozy place to enjoy your meals or a game of cards. There is plenty of room to spread out and relax at The Bodie House.
The Bodie House is a great choice for couples or families. Although there is room enough to sleep up to six people, it is the perfect choice for four. Two bedrooms with double beds and a pull-out couch can accommodate you.
A stay in the Bodie House offers privacy, comfort and rest not found at bed and breakfast rentals. You won’t have anyone staying in the room next door, and you won’t have breakfast with strangers! Yet, you will find all the style and class of a bed and breakfast.
The Bodie House will complement your vacation in every way. From the quiet surroundings to the beautiful views, you will enjoy every aspect.
Rates start at $179.00 per night (off season) to $199 during high season, for up to 4 people, based on a 2-night minimum on weekends. A 3- day minimum may apply to certain holiday and festival weekends. Each additional person is $15.00 per night (cottage sleeps 6). Advance notice and deposit are required. Please call for rental information.

Manager response: Dear Sir, we are sorry to hear you were disappointed. We rent the house over 100 nights per year and our reviews are overwhelmingly positive. The house is over 128 years old and is in a constant state of projects and repairs. We are continuously upgrading, painting and refreshing. So I cannot be sure what rundown means, but we are always improving and the house is always clean. The stairs are common to old houses all over Eureka Springs. In fact, it is nearly impossible to find historic properties without them. Our stairs are extremely safe due to the hand rails on both sides and narrowness of them. I spoke with our property manager today and he assured me you were told about the stairs prior to your stay. The bathroom has an antique bear claw tub. I'm sorry if this was not satisfactory. The shower in the utility room should have sufficed if you were not able to use the bath. I would like to offer you or your family a greatly discounted future stay due to your disappointment. Please contact the management for details. Thank You.

My family loved staying at the cottage. It is larger than the outside picture shows. Parking was great. Neighbors wonderful. And at first we had concerns on the stair case since my parents are in their late 70's. But it was no problem. Place is clean. And a short walk to town. We had fun watching people and trolleys from the front porch.

Charming House - Good location

We enjoyed our stay. The house was immaculate and amply stocked. Loved the location and local color. Great neighbors. Nice walks in both directions. Great scenery. Not a problem for us, but note there are stairs. One thing that we would have liked is better lighting on the back deck. Thank you for sharing your home.

Manager response: Thanks so much for the nice comments. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. As for the deck lighting, we just recently replaced the siding on that side of the house and built an awning over the french doors to protect from water damage. The last thing we have to do is install the light fixtures (wiring is already ready). This will be completed in early July. We hope you get to see it! Regards, Jack Bodie
