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......

Secluded and romantic

  • 4 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here for 2 nights while exploring Eureka Springs. The cottage was lovely and had a super comfortable feel. It was quite a bit further from town, which I had not expected, but is still within walking distance if the weather is not in the triple digits. (Which it was during our stay- so we had to drive to town and pay to park..) The seclusion was wonderful in the evenings and morning though, as you have ample privacy. The 2 negatives to our stay were the stain-glass window in the shower (I felt very uncomfortable as it was very see through to any foot traffic) and there was a lot of floor dust/ lingering spiders. The cottage has been booked daily for over a month so I expected it to be a little better kept, but all in all we had a great experience and would suggest it for young couples who are easily able to climb very steep/narrow stairs.

Comfortable, Clean, and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great vacation in Eureka Springs and it was fun to return each evening to this cool cottage. Everything was done up real nice and the property was beautiful as described. Just seconds away from downtown and centrally located to the many attractions. Decorations and accommodations A+, we would definitely recommend.

Excellent cottage with some attention to detail needed

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hockaday Cottage in Eureka Springs for my wife's birthday! It is super cozy, and very private. The location of the cottage IS somewhat difficult to find, and GPS will not take you there... so make sure you pay close attention to the directions the owner sends you. The street you double back on is called King St...

We enjoyed some local restaurants as well as getting to go explore a couple of caves in the area as well as just walking around down town. This is part of the fun in going to Eureka Springs.

Being as old as it is, the property is very well maintained, however there are some small details that would really set this cottage apart!

The bathroom has a really beautiful stained glass window in the shower, but it is almost completely see through... Maybe a curtain could be put up or the glass frosted?

They provided coffee (seemingly old), and a coffee maker but the jar of powdered creamer was a solid mass of creamer substance like maybe some moisture had gotten in.

The DVD player was not plugged in and the cord was not long enough to reach the outlet so we had to take it down and rig it to sit on a pulled out drawer.

That being said, we really loved the Hockaday Cottage and would absolutely recommend it to others! The aforementioned "bothers" are really just things that could make a truly extraordinary experience!
