My wife and I loved Evening Shade for our Honeymoon. They made us feel very welcome. The Breakfast and Dessert were perfect. the area was beautiful and peaceful. We were totally pleased with our stay and we will be back for another stay.

This was our first stay at Evening Shade Inn and will not be our last. The room was immaculent and breakfast delivered hot and fresh every morning. Really loved the the little extra touches such as bath salts, Q-tips, robes, cottonballs, and chocolates. Definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Rooms in the four plex and the cottages are set out in the woods. The suites in Linen and Lace are...

My husband and I are baffled why this is the top rated B&B in Eureka Springs according to Trip Advisor?!? There really wasn't much that was bad, but there wasn't anything that great either. As for the things we enjoyed about the stay at the Evening Shade was the location. While it wasn't within walking distance to the downtown area, it was very conveniently located a short driving distance to most attractions. There was a trolley stop just outside the Inn as well. We also liked the size of the Maylie Suite where we stayed, which was very large. However, the other guests at the Inn smoked just outside our room and every time we opened the door all the smoke smell would fill the room. The king side bed was comfortable. The room, while always clean, had a very 80's outdated decor including peeling wallpaper. Breakfast was served in-room on cheap Correlle dishes with a toothpick in the center and wrapped in Saran Wrap... we felt like we were eating food from a hospital cafeteria... which is also what most of it tasted like, bland. I'm used to eating several small meals a day and was adequately full from breakfast, but my husband was still very hungry after breakfast each of the two mornings we were there. The "3 Course Meal" they advertise of was: Day one- a small dish of a hashbrown casserole, a petite muffin, and a small dish of (tasty) fruit cobbler. Day two consisted of a small quiche, a tiny bowl of fresh fruit, and a piece of (tasty) eclair type cake. Each person had about 1 1/4 juice sized glasses of OJ. The staff was friendly, but not overly hospitable like other B&Bs we've stayed at in other parts of the country. It took the Inn Keeper several minutes to find our reservation, which probably didn't instill the greatest confidence at the onset. I really do think their set up would be good for perhaps someone that doesn't like many of the traditional B&B amenities- luxury linens and furnishings and being served "foodie" type meals in a community dining room... that's just our thing and this one didn't deliver.

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. Yes, guest expectations can be very high today and we work very hard to meet them. Every B&B is different and we do our best to accurately show and describe our accommodations. Our hot breakfast is served directly to your room at your chosen time because it offers our guests more privacy and convenience than most B&B's. We try to be helpful and available when needed, without hovering over our guests so not to interrupt their private time. I'm sorry our B&B wasn't exactly what you were looking for and I hope you will stay with one of our B&B friends on your next visit to Eureka Springs.

We had a wonderful time at Evening Shade Inn. The food was great and the atmosphere was cozy and relaxing. Donna was extremely helpful with pointing out things to see and do in town. Would highly recommend to anyone who may be visiting Eureka Springs.

We stayed in the honeymoon cottage and both the cabin and service was incredible. You will not find a more comfortable stay. The owners go to great lengths to ensure that you receive the best service possible. Thanks Evening Shade Inn!

My husband and I were looking forward to a weekend get away for my birthday and one last romantic get away before he deployed. The owners were very nice and the food was great!! The room on the other hand wasn't quite what we expected. The room was very clean and tidy, but it wasn't what we had in mind. I think the description led us astray.. there was no kitchen, only a mini fridge and microwave, the jacuzzi was nice, but this room was more like a glorified motel room. The decor was cheesy and old fashioned where we are a more modern couple..... the greatest thing about this place was in fact the breakfasts and desserts!

Room Tip: know exactly what you are getting! ASK QUESTIONS!!

We are so glad you got to spend some quality time together before your husband's deployment. I'm sorry you were expecting a kitchen in your room. We provide an extensive list of amenities such as king beds, two person jacuzzis, refrigerators, microwaves, flat screen tv's, DVD players with movies, etc, but we don't have kitchens in any of our accommodations. We provide a full description and multiple pictures of each and every suite and cottage on our website. We are glad you found the room to be clean and tidy and that you enjoyed the breakfast and desserts that we delivered to your room. We hope you will stay with us again.

We went down for a weekend away and had never been to Eureka Springs before. Everything was way above our expectations. There was not a detail that was overlooked. The special touches in the room made all the difference. Everything was super clean and Donna and Clark were so friendly. She explained everything to us and made the whole stay go smooth and without a hitch. We will definately go back and stay again.
