Hot Springs

Kerry Kraus

It’s always such a nice feeling when something in Arkansas is named “best of the best.” We have another selection to add to that ever-growing list. Hilltop Manor Bed & Breakfast in Hot Springs has been chosen as one of the top 10 bed and breakfasts in the U.S. by voters in the 7th annual Best of™ Awards, 2011-2012.

The Best of Award winners are based on the quality and quantity of the traveler reviews from the past year on The quality of inns’ photos, listing descriptions and overall online customer experience on are also contributing factors. Over 2,000 visitors were polled.

Faith Kraemer, owner and innkeeper for Hilltop Manor said, “It’s a true honor to be chosen for a Best of Award, and we thank our guests for the positive reviews that resulted in this award.”

Martin Slagter, vice president of HomeAway, Inc., which owns, was quoted as saying “The Best of Award winners, including Hilltop Manor, really exemplify the special experience that travelers expect from staying in a bed and breakfast. Take one look at Hilltop Manor’s reviews and you’ll see guests who share stellar accolades for its quality accommodations, breakfasts, amenities and outstanding hospitality and service.”

I have had the pleasure of staying with Faith and have experienced this award-winning service first-hand. The holidays are almost here. Why not treat someone – or yourself – to something special? Purchase a gift certificate and enjoy “the best of the best.”
