Lilian was a great hostess! She was incredibly responsive and made my stay very pleasant.
I needed a break and the studio retreat was exactly what I needed. The location is perfect for those looking to get a break and seeking some peace and quiet.
The retreat is located in a peninsula and was pleasantly serene. The views were breathtaking and the short walk to the lake/kayaks although steep was a great form of exercise, and welcome change from the flat terrain I’m accustomed to.
The location is perfect/ideal for all kinds of nature/outdoor lovers due to the proximity of the lake, Hobbs State park, and for those looking to mix up outdoor activities with dining/arts/sightseeing etc. War Eagle Mill, War Eagle Cavern, Eureka Springs, etc.
It rained most of the time while I was there but if the opportunity arose, I’d visit again and plan on spending more than 2 nights.
Another huge positive is that Lilian is trained as a holistic therapist. Something I took advantage of and would highly recommend. Getting to enjoy nature and quiet while working through some personal challenges, felt like my own version of Sedona in Rogers, Arkansas!
Peaceful and relaxing
Overall me and my gf really enjoyed our stay. Place was cozy and clean. Lillian was an amazing host and really enjoyed talking with her.
Trail to the lake was steeper than I thought. Not even Google map shows the steepness. Make sure to take big spray or essential oils as there are alot of bugs in this part.
Photos are very representative of accommodations. Walk to lake edge/kayaks was pretty, also steep.
Lillian was very nice. The area peaceful. The room exactly as shown. Bed comfortable. State Park Visitor Center, War Eagle Mill all worth a visit nearby and free. The restaurant at the Mill very affordable. And a bit further, but VERY worth visiting is Great Passion Play, but allow a day to see all the OUTSTANDING free attractions. My 16 yo son even loves the art museum. Holy Land Tour worth the add-on fee. Onyx Cave also a nice, affordable attraction.
Negative about this accommodation is water smells like sulphur when showering, flushing toilet or using tap to wash hands. While not a health hazard, the rotten egg smell very unpleasant. She does have a filtering pitcher for drinking water. Lillian is a nice lady. The lake, kayak use fun. (Many uneven steps down to water on a homemade trail, which we enjoyed, but some may need to be aware of when booking if stairs or walking an issue) The area lovely. We had planned to cookout hit dogs on the firepit, but the small lical store was out (holiday weekend). Advise bring groceries with you from home for her two.mini fridges.
Great "off the beaten path" retreat!
This was perfect for a weekend getaway of you are looking for beautiful scenery. Lilian was a great hostess and made sure we were taken care of well. The fresh fruit every day was a special treat. Very peaceful and welcoming.
