Comfort with Character, Coffee & Banana Bread!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I celebrated our birthdays in Eureka Springs in this wonderful cottage. Sharon's loving restoration kept the historical feel while adding modern amenities like AC, appliances and the best beds/linens you will ever experience. We loved the creative way she used the spaces, and the furnishings/decorations were personal and interesting. The attention to detail was amazing - everything we might have needed had been anticipated! With coffee, banana bread, and a warm note of welcome, we felt as if we were in the home of an old friend. Many memories were made here, with morning coffee on the porch to evenings in the living room, laughing and reminiscing after a day of exploring downtown. This is a perfect place for girl gatherings and lovers of all things historic - after reading other reviews, I am amazed, however, that no one has mentioned the fabulous rainfall shower in the second bathroom, made even better with the handmade soaps provided. Thank you, Sharon, for sharing your cottage with us - it was a pleasure to meet you, and we look forward to returning again to the Cottage on Hillside!

Very nice and quaint. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of five women for a weekend getaway. The beds were very comfortable and the sheets were very soft. The house is small, but had several areas where you could have a little privacy. Easy walk to downtown. The owner was very welcoming. Would stay here again.
