PERFECT - in every way

  • 5 of 5

From the time we walked in until we left, Wishing Star provided a relaxing retreat. Every detail was perfect including the location on historic Spring Street. The view from the arched door leading to the back porch made us feel like we were sitting in a tree house. Don't know when but can't wait to go back!

If you like primitive then this is for you

  • 1 of 5

I was very disappointed in our stay. The first thing we noticed as we walked in was the nasty smell. It gave me a headache right off. After we unplugged the smelly things we put them outside. Then came the slanting floors. Holy smokes, I could not believe how these floors tilted and sloped. That brought on a case of nausea from the feeling of dizziness it caused along with the headache I already now had thanks to the incense or whatever it was. Needless to say, I was in bed for the duration of that day. My husband and I both had reactions to the uneven floors. I am not a fan of having to put all my toiletries back in my suitcase after using them due to no vanity space. You literally have no room to keep anything on them. The heating system doesn’t work very well. You die if you are in the living room but freeze in the so called master bedroom. The little heater you put in the other bedroom provides too much heat. Neither of us could get a comfortable temp. All in all it was a pretty miserable stay and we considered numerous times trying to find somewhere else. Instead, we tried to stay gone as much as possible. The good parts were it was clean and the beds were comfortable. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Those floors need to be taken of!

Owner's Response: Oh my goodness! We what a huge surprise to hear that we had a customer who is unhappy with our property, and didn’t let us know while you were in the home! As you can see from my reviews, we take our guest comfort very very seriously, and bend over backwards to make everyone happy. We are sorry that the aromatherapy did not agree with you. We make it very clear that Eureka Zen is a spa like experience, which includes all natural food grade aromatherapy to greet you upon your arrival. However, had we known it was bothersome to you we would have made sure that the house is cleared. We make it very clear that Eureka Zen is a spa like experience, which includes all natural food grade aromatherapy to greet you upon your arrival. However, had we known it was bothersome to you we would have made sure that the house is cleared. As for the uneven floors, this is Eureka Springs!. We might challenge you to find a level floor in any home a public building in this town… As for Wishing Star, it was completely rebuilt from the foundation up including steel beams and new concrete foundation this year. I can assure you it is completely safe. You might have also noticed that Wishing Star was completely renovated just months ago with the additional bathroom added to the bathroom in the master suite. And a full spa bathroom added as well. Of course, bathroom space is always tough in homes that were built in 1800s and didn’t have bathrooms to start with. Again, this is most distressing to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us when you did not make any attempt to contact us during your stay. You received a personal welcome letter from us that included our phone number, and we asked to call if there always ANYTHING that we could do to make your stay more pleasant. We have several other homes in the area, in fact some on that same street and would have bent over backwards to move you to a home that you loved and see that you were comfortable and fulfilled. Next time, in fairness to the people who work so hard to make sure that you have a wonderful trip, let them know if you were unsatisfied so that they can make an attempt to correct it, saving hard feelings on both sides.

Adorable home in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Wishing Star. My toddler daughter loved all the doors and the wrap around porch and swing. It was easy to walk downtown and we enjoyed every minute!

Girls Getaway Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Four high school friends stayed for a girls getaway weekend. This house was perfect! I never moved my car. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The back outside balcony was the perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee & evening glass of wine!!

A Storybook Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The rooms were well appointed and clean. Plenty of space for four people. The open concept made this airy and relaxing. Great full bathroom with soft rain showerhead. The beds were comfortable. Best of all was the location. It was a short walk to all Eureka Springs had to offer. The neighborhood was safe with lovely gardens and friendly people willing to chat and recommend nearby attractions. The owners were quick to respond. All in all this was a perfect place that I highly recommend.

Great Location on Quiet Street

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for my husband and me plus my mother. We picked because there weren't stairs to navigate and the cottage offered free wifi. Loved walk-in shower and robes for all. Great wrap-around porch where we enjoyed our morning coffee and tea with views of Christ of the Ozarks statue. Restaurants and shops walking distance (with sturdy shoes). Clean and tranquil place to stay!
