Brackenridge Lodge
Reviewed 9 December 2015

This quaint lodge, nestled in the Arkansas woods, has been one of my favorite stays, when visiting Eureka. The rooms are utterly adorable, cozy, cabin-style rooms, many with jacuzzis and fireplaces. This time, our room had both front porch and back, covered deck, with a great woodland view. If it hadn't been pouring rain and freezing cold the whole time, it would have been much more enjoyable.

I would give a 5-star rating for the room, except....there were a few glitches and I would be remiss not to mention them. First, you are on your own for breakfast. That didn't bother us, because we brought Thanksgiving leftovers along. (Rooms have micro and fridge.) However, they "winterize" their outdoor ice maker, so we had to "borrow" a few cubes from the front desk. (No one wants to buy a bag of ice for two people on a one-night stay.) Second, there were only 4 paper cups in this room with no spoons or stir-sticks, which made morning coffee a little tedious. Thankfully, I brought a knife for cutting an apple, so it doubled as a stirrer and eating fork. We found the old-style fireplace, let more smoke into the room than we were comfortable with, as well, so after one log, we were done. Wi-fi was basically non-existent, so we resorted to our hot-spots. We had less of these problems in previous rooms, especially those with a kitchenette.

The bed was great, room was quiet, quaint and full of atmosphere.

I still love this place, but will come a little more prepared next visit.

Room Tip: They have one very nice cabin that accepts small pets.

Brackenridge lodge was a great quaint place to stay. Clean, a beautiful view, staff / owner. Very nice and helpful very close to down town and restaurants we would live to come back and visit very soon the road traffic was not an issue after 10:00 pm

We stay here a lot while we are riding in Arkansas. Great, central location and close to all the shopping in downtown Eureka Springs. Love the rooms, the scenery and the pool. The owners are very friendly and easy to do business with.

Room Tip: Rooms 10 or 11-best scenery

This lodge is quiet, tucked on the back side of a hill with a meadow and woods behind. We saw several deer and so did our neighbors. The 2-queen-bed room we had was very clean, dated furnishings but comfy beds. A small fridge with microwave atop is next to the sink, and the toilet/tub are behind a door. The room was nonsmoking but ashtrays were outside and our neighbors used them. Wi-fi is nonexistent, but you should be looking at the woods or swimming in the pool below the trees. Lotsa outdoor grill options next to the pool. Landlady loaned me a can opener and since we were there for scuba diving certification, we were 45 minutes late checking out on our last day. I called ahead to inform landlady and she didn't charge the extra $10 for making housekeeping wait. One mile from main strip, so much less $ and still very close.

Room Tip: We were in the very back with view of woods and meadow.

we stayed in # 7 nearest the woods. it was quiet and cozy. I was a little disappointed the fact it didnt have a refridgerator though (at the time this is written) we,ve stayed in # 9 before and it did have a fridge, maybe they'll add one. . One thing is for certain theres not a "cleaner" swimming pool in town! Located a very short driving distance from downtown,

Room Tip: the jucuzzi rooms are the best deal,but leave me one will ya?

The place is very clean. The service is exceptional, we had to show up very late and the people who run the place accommodated us. The view are exceptional. I probably won't stay at another place if I decide to go back to Eureka again. Price is very reasonable as well per night for a two queen room.
