Arkansas Inn Earns Top Industry Designation


Arkansas has wonderful lodging options whether you’re looking to get away from it all at the lodge at Mount Magazine State Park near Paris, see contemporary art at the boutique 21C Museum Hotel in Bentonville or find romance at prestigious bed and breakfast inns such as Inn at Rose Hall in Eureka Springs.


Inn at Rose hall has recently joined the portfolio of celebrated B&Bs of Select Registry. “We’re delighted to welcome this exceptional property,” says Phil Jenkins, executive director, Select Registry. “Of the 20,000 inns in North America, only 350 have earned this prestigious designation.”

To gain admission to Select Registry, each property must pass rigorous, unannounced inspections to qualify and maintain its membership.

Inn at Rose Hall is set in the heart of the Ozark Mountains in the charming Victorian town of Eureka Springs. While each of the five guestrooms is unique, all are elegantly appointed, with Victorian décor, fireplaces, two-person jetted tubs and beds wrapped in luxurious linens with a choice of pillows. Adding to the comforts are sherry, fresh fruit, flowers, homemade cookies and gourmet breakfasts served daily in the Morning Room.

This romantic inn is an easy, 10-minute walk through a historic neighborhood to downtown Eureka Springs’ boutiques, art galleries and restaurants. Outdoor enthusiasts find much to do: explore nearby caves and natural springs. Go hiking or horseback riding on scenic mountain trails. Rivers and lake abound here too, and canoe adventures are within easy reach. Among the other nearby attractions: Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge; and the Thorncrown Chapel, recognized by the American Institute of Architects among the Top Four Designs of the 20th Century. The innkeepers are happy to offer tips on everything from historic sites, wineries, restaurants and shops to hiking and biking trails, golf courses and more.

Other Select Registry inns in Arkansas include: Arsenic and Old Lace B&B, also in Eureka Springs and Lookout Point Lakeside Inn and Hilltop Manor Bed & Breakfast, both in Hot Springs.
