“The Grotto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

We did not realize we were to be the first to use The Grotto. We thoroughly loved it. Loved sitting on the balcony sipping coffee or drinking tea. The spa tub was wonderful. That was exactly what we needed the evening we got there. We drove for 12 hours and it was so relaxing. The property is beautiful. John and Julie made our 45th anniversary very special for us. We were scheduled to stay 7 nights...but with Hurricane Isaac headed into Louisiana (our home is in Alexandria LA) we needed to be home for family that might have needed a place of escape. They were very understanding us leaving a day ahead of time. I wouldn't exchange our stay with them for anything. We had a wonderful relaxing time of enjoyment. We highly recommend this place.

We have been staying at Lookout Cottages since our Honeymoon 19 years ago. This property continues to be our favorite place in Eureka Springs. Our most recent trip, we stayed in the Lookout Cottage, which is a small two-story cottage. We have stayed in this cottage before and we enjoy it very much. The Lookout Cottage isn't real big, but is has everything you could ask for. The top floor, which you enter from the road, has a bedroom and living area. Downstairs is a two person jacuzzi, a kitchen area, and bath with a double shower. From the bottom floor, you can walk out onto a nice sized deck that is surrounded by many large trees.

What we like best about the Lookout Cottages, and particularly the Lookout Cottage itself is that this location is very quiet, but not too far off the beaten path. Many of the other cottages and B&B's that are in Eureka Springs are right next to a fairly busy road. You will not be bothered by traffic noise when staying at the Lookout Cottages. We have noticed an increase in motorcycle traffic through Eureka Springs in recent years, so it's nice to not hear all of that noise when staying here.

My wife and I love this place and can't wait to return. We highly recommend it!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Suite Alice in the Lookout Cottages at the beginning of June. We were in town for a wedding that was taking place at the Crescent Hotel nearby. We chose the Lookout Cottages because they would make it easy to access the larger events but give us greater privacy than we might have staying among a gaggle of wedding guests.

We had two nights at the Alice. Upon arriving, I was somewhat upset that there is no 'view' per se, although the forest around the Cottages grounds is very nice and pleasing. There were several different sorts of plants in bloom, one of which did an exceptional job attracting butterflies and thereby added a nice touch to the trip.

Upon arriving, there was a note with our names on it that welcomed us to the property. The suite itself consisted of a sitting room with three walls of windows, a bedroom, and an exceptionally roomy bathroom. The wallpaper is classic B&B, but that is the only thing about this place that is remotely cheesy. The bed and the couch were both comfortable. The shower had excellent water pressure and temperature. There was a nice closed-off section with the toilet, giving a measure of privacy. The jacuzzi was fantastic--it takes awhile to fill, but we can't really blame Jim & Julie, the owners, for the laws of physics, can we? The porch out back was also fantastic and got some sun and shade on it for most parts of the day.

We did get the wrong key when we first checked in. After walking the short distance to the main house, we were given two replacement keys for our trouble. There were cinammon rolls and orange juice glasses in our refrigerator. If this constitutes the whole of the breakfast, it seems a little spartan. But, if there was a breakfast at the main house (and I suspect that there was) then this represents a nice extra touch!

Overall, I was impressed with the Lookout Cottages and with Suite Alice in particular. Everything wasn't perfect, but I'm not sure that I would want it to be. Everything worked and everything was comfortable. The owners were extremely considerate and thoughtful towards their guests (those pieces of chocolate on the bed are a nice touch!) and I felt at ease while visiting. If I ever have an opportunity to visit Eureka Springs again, I would certainly go back too!

Room Tip: Suite Alice is fantastic--the jacuzzi is a particularly nice touch!

Celebrated our 20th anniversary at Suite Alice. We have been visiting the most exclusive B&B's in Eureka Springs for years, recently booked Lookout Cottages, Suite Alice, was our best lodging experience in 15 years!! We had beautiful, private accommodations, staff just left key in door and did not bother us thru duration of our stay, by far the most perfect private luxurious stay,( on dead end street, walking distance to Crescent hotel and New Moon Spa) we have found in Eureka, can't imagine booking anywhere else. We look forward to spending many more anniversaries at Suite Alice.

We had a very relaxing time at the cottage! If you want a very comfy, quaint place to stay, I highly recommend staying at Lookout Cottages! If you want comfort and the right amount of privacy, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Julie and family for making us feel right at home!!!
