Overview

Eureka Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Historic Hockaday Cottage nestled behind the main house on Spring Street is right in the heart of the city cradled in a beautiful private garden and yet only steps to the action of the downtown area. The cottage is 2 story with a sitting area and bedroom upstairs which houses a four poster bed with down bedding. The full kitchen and bath are downstairs. Bath has a soaking tub and shower which sits under an antique stained glass window.

The cottage was originally a carriage house for horses and carriage storage for the original owner Homer McLaughlin and his family in the 1880's. Later he turned the top floor into a small local grocery where the gentlemen would sit beside the wood stove and play cards. When we restored the cottage we found old newspapers and playing cards in the walls as well as tobacco stains on the floors around the original wood burning stove. I can just imagine the stories that were made up in that room......

Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Hockaday Cottage for 3 days. It was a very relaxing stay. We were able to walk almost everyday to nearby restaurants, etc. The best part about the cottage was definitely the bed, it was so comfortable. Upon arrival, we found orange juice and two muffins. The following morning we found the muffins to be quite amazing. The only downside which was quite minimal for us was the TV. Several of the channels were fuzzy and the remote did not work. We had a wonderful stay there and will definitely stay again if we vacation in Eureka Springs again. Thanks!

A review with info

  • 4 of 5

We have traveled to E S for many years and have stayed many places. This is the first time we have booked something thru VRBO. I read many of the reviews before picking a place. Below is a review I would have liked to read.

First this cottage is 2 stories, the stairs inside and out side are steep. Not for folks not able to climb, but then none of E S is for those kind of folks. The floor that the entry door opens up to is the bedroom/sitting area. The kitchen and bath are down stairs. (that means one has to go down stairs in the middle of night for a bathroom run. Steep stairs.) The stairs outside leading to the cottage are stone stairs, but there is a hand rail use it! Once inside it was a bit cold and took awhile for us to get it warmed up. One of the windows could not close all the way, so we stuffed a towel in it.

Speaking of that, the window in the bathroom makes it less than private while showering. And there was hole in the glass. We covered the window as best we could.

The closet for hanging clothes is located in the bathroom down stairs.

The kitchen was great, if we had wanted to we could have cooked a large meal with all that was provided. But we did not. We did use the coffee maker and used the fridge to house the food we brought with us.

The place is about 3/4 of a mile from the main downtown area. We walked it a couple of times, and also drove in. This was our first time to come in December and found it to be a very slow time of year. But we enjoyed it.

The bedroom area is just that, mostly bed with 2 chairs. The TV is there but not too many channels. A nice sofa would have been nice.

This review may sound negative, but it meant to give facts to enable one to make a decision on renting this property. It was fairly clean, it has its own parking place, which may be hard for some folks to navigate. The price was right. All in all not a bad place. The owners seemed nice through our emails, even letting us add another date. This place is worth checking out. If you need just a place to lay your head, have a bit to eat this is it.

A wonderful surprise in a really great little town

  • 5 of 5

We stopped in Eureka Springs over the Thanksgiving Holiday on our drive from the East Coast to California and chose to spend three nights at this really charming little cottage. What a great decision. Our communications with the owners were excellent and we arrived expecting to have a nice relaxing stay on our 3500 mile journey. The cottage is charming and was everything one could want. The location is perfect in terms of being a nice 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive from downtown Eureka Springs. The cottage is small and cozy but perfect for two. It is a separate cottage and thus is a quiet retreat. Highly recommended for the weary traveler. We will definitely stay there on our return East in the spring.

The PERFECT place to stay for our 25th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage was the perfect place to stay for our 25th anniversary trip. We loved everything about the cottage. It had everything we needed, and it was in the best location. We parked the car and walked everywhere we needed to go. The bed was so comfortable, I didn't want to get up in the mornings.

Private Location Close to Town

  • 4 of 5

We arrived on Friday night and found the keys under the welcome mat just as promised.

Cottage had everything we needed and was the perfect size for 2 people.

We enjoyed the privacy and the short 10 minute walk to town. We are a younger couple and had no trouble with the stairs in the cottage or the steps up and down outside to our vehicle and walk to downtown. It may be difficult for older travelers or anyone with disabilities.

Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great history and character of the Carriage House Cottage. We liked the layout of the kitchen and bathroom, especially the extra storage areas and cubby holes. The bed was very comfortable and the owners were very accommodating. For restaurants in the area, we would recommend Local Flavors, which is a little pricey, but the food was excellent! Also, for home coking at a reasonable price, we would recommend the city café.
