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......
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.
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!
This was my first time staying in Eureka in 20 years. Hockaday Cottage provided me a very warm and comfortable place to land after exploring all the great treasures Eureka has to offer. It's nicely appointed and quite authentic. The cottage has off street parking and is in a very private setting. I was in need of nothing! Thanks for this wonderful resource!! Jay Y
My wife and I came to Eureka Springs looking for a quiet weekend in a quaint little town, and this converted carriage house/cottage fit the bill perfectly! A small/effective kitchenette and bathroom downstairs with a big bedroom upstairs, walking distance to downtown shops/restaurants/bars, as well as just down a hill from the Crescent Hotel (with rooftop bar). This was a great place to stay! I highly recommend it!
