Winery Tours in Eureka Springs

Eureka Springs has two wineries, both very close to Cliff Cottage Inn and an easy drive from the inn’s very central location. Visiting them and tasting some of the wine there is a great thing to do in Eureka Springs when you come into town to visit. Here is a little information about the wineries to get you started.
Keels Creek Winery, 3185 E Van Buren: The vines are located in the hills above Keels Creek, south on Rock House Road about 3 miles from the city limits of Eureka Springs. Eight acres of land planted in 2004 and 2005 now contains eight varieties of grapes.

Great Fishing is Here Now

Striped Bass, White Bass, and hybrids are all on the move in our area, decamping the river as water temperatures rise and bass spawning draws to a close. The White River has been in the 70-degree range recently and the Kings River is running at swimming temp – 78 degrees last week. In Beaver Lake, good top water bites are being achieved with big redfins and Sara Spooks. Searching along the flat areas near shore is a good place to cast, and sunrise and sunset are yielding excellent results. Also look for gravelly area, stumps and natural nesting areas where big ones seem to be biting now.

Be sure and book one of our historic cottages or luxury Jacuzzi suites and we can help you arrange a memorable fishing trip with guide services.

Trout Fishing in America

One of our favorite groups, Trout Fishing in America, performed this weekend at Eureka Springs’ venerable city auditorium, The Aud. This wonderful facility is just a half a block away from Cliff Cottage Inn, on Main Street, and features comfortable vintage seating and superb acoustics. The duo of Tout Fishing in America gave a very lively performance, featuring not only superb instrumental work on guitar, banjo, electric bass (and something I had not seen before – an electric concert double bass in the shape of a traditional double bass neck with a support stick out the bottom) but also new vocals from their upcoming CD. During intermission, both musicians mixed with the audience and shared performance stories. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to catch this class act and to be able to share it with some of our guests at Cliff Cottage Inn.

New Cliff Cottage Inn Video

A few weeks ago, Mike Shubic, videographer and travel writer, visited Cliff Cottage Inn. He proved to be amazingly creative and we had lots of fun with him as he toured Eureka Springs and our inn. Mike produced a fast-paced video narrative of Cliff Cottage Inn as well as illustrating some of the charming aspects of our quaint Victorian village. To see the results of Mike’s efforts, check out the link below:
