Stay in Style: Some Winning Arkansas Bed and Breakfasts!

Kerry Kraus


, one of the world’s leading authorities on bed and breakfasts, recently conducted their Guests’ Greatest Picks Awards Program and their readers have spoken. Out of 8,500 B&Bs worldwide, three of the winning properties for 2011 are in Arkansas.

The Gables Inn Bed and Breakfast (top photo) in Hot Springs was selected as the Most Romantic. The Heartstone Inn and Cottages (middle photo) in Eureka Springs won Best Overall Breakfast, and the 1884 Bridgeford House, (bottom photo) also in Eureka Springs, was picked as having Best Architecture.

I have visited all three of these establishments and they are first-rate, well-deserving of the honors bestowed upon them. If you’ve never stayed at a bed and breakfast, these are good places to start. If you’ve vacationed at these in the past, maybe it’s time for a return visit. For information on other Arkansas Bed and Breakfasts, visit
