Very comfortable and close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The cabin was decorated well and was very comfortable. My wife and I felt at home instantly. The front porch is a great place to relax and enjoy some fresh air. The best part was the proximity to downtown. It is just a short scenic walk to all the shops and restaurants. We didn't want to leave and plan on returning ASAP.


Sharon was amazing. She was easy to stay in contact with to answer any questions. You can tell that her priority is for you to enjoy your stay. Such a positive experience overall.

Our Stay at Cottage on the Hillside

  • 5 of 5

Cottage on the Hillside is a charming cottage with lots of modern conveniences. I loved communicating with the owner, who provided little extras that were lovely. It was close enough to walk to downtown Eureka Springs and located in a wonderful neighborhood conducive to strolling and admiring all the beautiful old homes. We love coming to Eureka Springs and were especially delighted with our stay in Cottage on the Hillside. We however thought CRBO has excessive charges and would not go through them again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for your kind words about our Cottage! We really strive to accommodate our guests to the fullest! I am thinking you were commenting on "VRBO" when you spoke about, "CRBO charges were very high"? I understand your thoughts on this subject and hope you may be able to work that out with "VRBO"! Thank you for staying with us and you all are welcome back any time!

Perfect location and so cozy!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Location; close enough to walk downtown but far enough away to not hear the "nightlife". This cottage was very clean, cozy and lacked nothing. Sharon was great from the time I booked the cottage, to pre-arrival, arrival and even the day after I left; she made sure we had great arrival instructions and checked in just enough to make sure we had everything we needed. I'll definitely stay here next time I return to beautiful Eureka Springs; I couldn't have asked for a more pleasurable stay.
