Amazing Contemporary Castle Rental for Families and Groups in Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Beautiful original paintings, photography, and tasteful sculptures line the walls of the castle, creating a gorgeous juxtaposition.
After driving up the bumpy gravel road that brings guests to the foot of the castle, guests will enter the phenomenal structure and find A-frame ceilings that house walls with massive bright windows in different shapes and sizes, and a spacious common area, home to a living room, a dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen is typically seen as the heart of a house, and in the castle, it is no different. Overlooking the dining and living areas, guests will find a bar with stools against it for chatting with guests preparing meals, along with high quality appliances such as an oven, a stove, a microwave, a toaster, a Keurig coffeemaker with a selection of coffee pods, a dishwasher, cookware, a refrigerator, and more than enough space on the granite countertops to prepare great food. The eight-chair dining room table sits in between the kitchen and living room in an all-windowed nook that adds even more natural light to the common area.
Guests should be so inclined to cozy up next to the large stone fireplace on the big leather couch, the leather loveseat, or the soft green reading chair that encircle the fireplace, with a coffee table in between and a beautifully patterned rug at their feet. A flat-screen TV in the room promises Blu-ray films on the Blu-ray player for the whole family to watch together after a big day spent exploring Eureka Springs.
The turret takes up a corner of the room and provides an entryway from the front of the house to the sprawling common area, and also possesses a balcony on the second floor, so guests can sit high above everyone else, just observing the movement inside the rental or dangling legs off the side while reading a book.
In the downstairs master bedroom, guests will find a spacious room with a queen-size bed, warm red walls, and large wooden French doors that open out onto not only the green beautifully landscaped lawn that extends across 52-acres of private land for guests to explore, but also a fire pit with chairs around it for bonfire fun like roasting s’mores.
The master bathroom can only be accessed once inside the bedroom, adding an extra level of privacy and ease for guests, and it features a toilet, a bathtub/shower combination, and a sink. An additional half-bathroom can be found downstairs, as well, and it hosts a toilet and a sink. Every bathroom in the house comes stocked with ultra plush toilet paper for maximum guest comfort, along with provided linens and towels. There is a washer/dryer at the castle if guests need to tend to their laundry.
Upstairs, on the second level of the castle, visitors will discover another master bedroom with vaulted ceilings and a canopy frame around the king-size premium Tuft & Needle mattress. The room sports massive picture windows and high triangle shaped windows with curved sides, appropriately reminiscent of ones found in old fortresses. The master bedroom has an attached master bathroom designed for ultimate relaxation, as it hosts a Jacuzzi bathtub along with a shower, a toilet, and a sink. A queen-size bed inhabits the third bedroom, with darker walls, bright-bulbed bedside lamps atop matching nightstands, and an antique writing desk beside the large window, making the room feel every bit as cozy and peaceful as the rest of the castle.
Families visiting with their children will love the bunkroom that essentially functions as a playroom paradise of sorts. The grand space is filled with natural light during the day that bounces off the cream walls and shines on the full-size bunk beds with an additional full-size trundle bed underneath, and on the sleeper sofa found in the room to accommodate even more guests and provide a relaxing spot for guests to watch the flat-screen television in the room and/or play games or guitar together. The bunkroom houses a large workspace complete with a table and a long bench to foster an ideal environment for crafting.
In front of the television, guests will find two round chairs so that other guests who might not be sleeping in the room will still have a comfortable place to spend time with the seven other guests capable of spending the night there. The final bathroom is also situated on the second floor and houses a toilet, a bathtub/shower combination, and a sink.
Visitors are bound to spend their time exploring the three-story turret that features original artwork and sculptures along the way up to the top and spend time on each of the landings, whether it be to admire the pieces or to have a seat at the eight-person dining table on the first level. After coming down from the windy spiral that hosts an incredible view of the property, guests may venture outside to read on the gigantic wooden patio with chairs, cushions, tables, and a barbecue grill, or continue exploring the expansive property like tenants might have done hundreds of years ago.

Eureka Springs hosts a multitude of various activities. From exploring nearby Onyx Cave via a self-guided tour to admiring the gorgeous Thorncrown Chapel, made up over 6,000 feet of glass, there is something for every visitor to enjoy while staying at the castle.
Now listed on the National Historic Register, Saint Elizabeth’s Church has become a beautiful landmark in Eureka Springs and one that thousands of visitors flock to each year. Although constructed over one hundred years ago, the stone church holds the same character it did when it was first built and filled with churchgoers. Today, visitors stop in to admire the simple nature of it and to pass through the unattached Bell Tower that leads to the house of worship. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church is recognized as the only church that you have to enter through the Bell Tower and has been featured in Ripley’s Believe It! Or Not! for that fact.
Ripley was a big fan of Eureka Springs, writing and sketching about the town many times during his years spent marveling at people and places worldwide. Frog Fantasies Museum and Gift Shop caught his eye, and he created a cartoon based on the frog fantasies. Now, for a $2 entry fee, guests may wander into the museum for a look at over 7,0000 items the owners, Louise and Pat Mesas have been collecting since 1937. In the adjoining gift shop, guests will be able to purchase their own frog souvenirs. From toys to jewelry and teapots, the Frog Fantasies Museum has it all.
Pivot Rock is a natural wonder found in Eureka Springs. Just a mile outside of downtown, down a gravel road, is a 23-foot V-shaped limestone chunk that visitors can pay $3 to experience. After snapping a photo with Pivot Rock, guests may walk across the very nearby natural bridge composed entirely of limestone that stretches almost 20-feet across the land. The two sites are said to draw in most of the visitors who pass through Eureka Springs each year.
Outdoor activities are not hard to come by in Eureka Springs, with over 25 miles of deep woodsy trails or paved paths, guests are likely to spend most days exploring the beautiful area on foot or on bikes to soak up the fresh air and sunshine.
One of the most impressive sites to see can be found just outside of town. Christ of the Ozarks Statue, a monumental sculpture of Jesus, sits 65.5 feet high atop Magnetic Mountain and overlooks all of Eureka Springs. It has become one of the most visited attractions in all of the Ozarks and is a must-do for guests to add to their vacation plans.
Not for the faint of heart, America’s Most Haunted Hotel calls Eureka Springs home, and brave guests can embark on ghost tours of the 1886 Crescent Hotel and Spa to learn the legends loitering the halls of the haunted space.
