Guestbook comments from the owner

Left in our guest book:

"Last night's bonfire topped off a wonderful week of relaxing, adventure, laughter, great food, and beautiful views at Serenity Hilltop! This was the perfect home away from home for our ten folks from Texas and Kansas. Scott and Meg, thank you so much for treating us like family. We will definitely recommend your Eureka Springs piece of paradise to anyone looking for a place to catch their breath and enjoy friends, family, and the beautiful views!

Thank you!!"

We love the little hearts the young ladies put by their names! Thank you.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at the Serenity Hilltop Retreat. The house was a perfect layout for our family of 7. Our hosts, Meg and Scott, were awesome and very accommodating when we were ready to grill, wanted a campfire for s'mores or a restaurant recommendation. And the view? Amazing! Our family enjoyed our stay very much.

Country Life

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples ranging in age from 55 to 71. The home is barely out of Eureka Springs, probably less than 5 minutes, but we felt like we were totally in the country. We all enjoyed sitting out on either of the decks in the evening looking out over the country side. The only noise we had to contend with were all the crickets, tree frogs, and other sounds of nature. But of course we all loved that. The home was extremely clean and well kept. I would definitely recommend it to friends. The only disappointment, the grill is up next to the owners house and not very convenient.

We had a terrific stay at Serenity House

  • 5 of 5

3 couples shared this spacious get away retreat. Each couple had their own room, full bath and even porch. All furniture was clean and fresh as was everything in the whole place. The living area had plenty of seating being connected with the kitchen/bar area (also with it's own full bath and porch with a swing). The only TV is located in the lower suite, we never turned it on, there was so much to explore in the town of Eureka Springs.There is a large kitchen with every appliance we needed. (Coffee, Salt and Pepper were the only food items provided.) Beautiful scenery could be seen from each window and off every porch. Meg, the owner, was very nice and helpful. Our largest regret was only being there for 2 days.

Long week-end with friends

Mary was very helpful and informative. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed. My only comment would be that I would have a tv in the living room.

Beautiful house with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Serenity Hilltop was absolutely perfect. We had a large group (10 people) and we all had plenty of space. The owners were delightful and very accommodating to our group. We grilled one night and had a marshmallow roast the next and they set up our grill and fire pit.

Over 1,400 feet up in the Ozarks on 7 private wooded acres to explore. A quick trip to all that Eureka Springs has to offer--art galleries, quaint shopping, great restaurants--as well as minutes from Beaver Lake. In an hour, you can be in Branson, MO. We also highly recommend Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge for a face to face experience with rescued tigers, lions, cougars, and bears. We are located right off Highway 62 for easy access.
