                          Over 1,400 feet up in the Ozarks on 7 private wooded acres to explore. A quick trip to all that Eureka Springs has to offer--art galleries, quaint shopping, great restaurants--as well as minutes from Beaver Lake. In an hour, you can be in Branson, MO. We also highly recommend Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge for a face to face experience with rescued tigers, lions, cougars, and bears. Our pavilion is perfect for family reunions, weddings, or parties right on site. We are located right off Highway 62 for easy access.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: Scott and Meg married in 1990 and spent years living in the Detroit Metro Area before moving to Houston, TX, in 2005. They both earned graduate degrees and had busy careers (Scott as a CFO and Meg as a teacher and writer). But after decades of battling crazy traffic and commuting hours each day, they decided it was time for a change.

                          Why the Owner Chose Eureka Springs:
                          One look at this glorious property in Arkansas was all it took. Eureka Springs stole Scott & Meg's hearts, and the promise of waking up every morning to a view that stretched for miles clinched it. They packed up the family (including 4 cats and a dog) and relocated to what they now call Serenity HIlltop. Scott and Meg live just across the lawn from the guest house, so you may see Meg writing on the porch or Scott working in the yard. It is truly a little bit of heaven every day.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Downtown Eureka Springs is delightful, but staying overnight in the city can make parking tricky and is not exactly peaceful. Serenity Hilltop offers the privacy for your group to be as quiet or as loud as you please, and to be all under one roof together. The house is perfect for family reunions, a weekend getaway with the girlfriends, and especially for weddings. Meg is ordained and licensed to perform weddings and civil ceremonies, and our pavilion offers a breathtaking view for your special day. Our property also provides the opportunity to hike the trails or have Scott take you out in the 4x4. Guests love to explore the cavern on our property and take quiet walks in the woods. Everyone in town comments on what a beautiful place we have, and we couldn't agree more. We'd love to share it with you!
