Eureka Spring(s) Break

Eureka Springs, Arkansas is a great spot for a weekend get-a-away or a day trip. Although, I grew up around the area, our weekend visits are never boring. We always find something new to do in the Victorian town. The most recent trip was no exception.

Saturday: We checked into the Dogwood Cottages-The Huckleberry. This was our first stay here, and we were pleasantly surprised by these small cabins. Ours was one of the furthest out and on the edge of the forest. We were visited each day by 4 deer. We sat on our back deck and enjoyed the peaceful rustic surroundings.     11018142_10206585449739623_2682385113565906344_n

Saturday Night: The Grand Tavern for our anniversary! Another first in our many visits to Eureka. We each had the Classic Caesar Salad for starters. I had the Pan Seared Scallops with Lobster butter sauce and potato risotto. The scallops were like 20 seconds over cooked, but no harm still tasted good. The potato risotto was divine. My husband had the Red Lentil Encrusted Walleye which was also delicious. We each had a drink and did not have dessert. The meal is pricey especially for just a dinner out in a small town, but it was a nice atmosphere for our anniversary date.

Sunday Morning: Mud Street which is our favorite, favorite place for breakfast or lunch. I’ve already raved about this wonderful place. We also went here Monday for breakfast. One day we had the pancakes which aren’t always available and another I had the granola dish. Great atmosphere, reasonable, and we really like all the staff.

Sunday was rainy, so we ventured to Onyx Cave for a 20 minute walk in a self-guided tour. The best part was really the drive out. It used to be something pretty big, but not now. It may be worth a further drive to Berryville for Cosmic Caverns-bigger and better kept. Sunday night blah continued with the Rowdy Beaver.  I know, sounds like girls in very risqué outfits will be there, but nowhere close. A family restaurant with Meh food. Good fried Pickles though.

Monday: Kings River Golf course is an 18 hole course in the middle of nowhere in Shell Knob Missouri. We really love this course for as rough as it is. Very woodsy and not crowded at all.

Monday Night was Local Flavor. It was the perfect evening to eat out on the deck. We love the food, but there has always been some issue with a server or hostess. I know there are good servers there because we hear them serving other tables. I had the Shrimp Scampi and my husband had the Grilled Portobello. Again, we both had drinks but no dessert. I think it was the chocolate covered pecans waiting in our room along with a bottle of Michael David’s Freakshow.

What we love about Eureka is that you come as you are. No dressing up if you don’t want to, but if you do that works.
