Our Tom Sawyer Lakeside Cottage is one of our guests favorites! Only 2 miles to the heart of downtown (6 minutes on average). 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, jetted tub for 2, fireplace, decks, kitchen. Convenient to downtown yet private. Enjoy our unique setting, and exceptional hospitality! Lower rates for less people possible. The rate includes up to 6 people (adults, children, infants). Enjoy the privacy this cottage offers, our exceptional service and the uniqueness of our property.

The space

Conveniently located to downtown, just two miles, door to door, to Basin Park in the heart of downtown, our cottages offer a tranquil location, but just a hop to shopping or dining. We can also offer tips for busy weekends on where to find good parking downtown, or where to catch a trolley for easy access.

This wonderful cottage is not one of our pet friendly cottages, but ask us about other pet friendly options.

The Tom Sawyer is a two story cottage, right on the edge of our 6 acre pond, named Lake Lucerne in the 1920's when this resort first opened. Check out our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page to see vintage photos dating back to 1890 when the dam was built. Super cool pictures!

The downstairs has not steps coming in from the parking out front. There is a full kitchen with breakfast bar, dining area, and living room with gas fireplace. The master king bedroom as well as the main full bathroom are off of this living area. From the bedroom, there is a partitioned room with the jetted tub for two, as well as a deck door.

The living room also has a door to the two level deck and lake.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms, both queen beds, and a full bathroom. The bedroom that faces the lake has a private balcony that overlooks the water.

During certain times of the year, if you are a smaller group, or just a couple, our pricing varies based on the number of beds you need. That allows us to offer a couple needing just the master bedroom a lower rate - $184 M-Th and $206 Fri-Sun.

If you need just two bedrooms, for two to four people, the rate is $239 M-Th, and $267 Fri-Sun, including tax.

Guest access

Guests are welcome to walk the trails on our 40 acres, fish from any point on the 6 acre lake for free (catch and release), visit our farm animals anytime over the fence, or schedule a more intimate meeting by calling during your stay. Our miniature donkeys, miniature horse, llamas, alpacas, and chickens all like visitors.

Interaction with guests

Our focus is your privacy. I live on site, and am just a phone call or text away, but will not disturb your visit with a knock on the door unless there is something urgent. You are on vacation, and need to feel free to relax, read, nap or dive into a great movie, without undue interruption.

Just call for any reason. Pleased to answer questions about Eureka Springs, Arkansas, ideas for day trips, things you must see or do, about our resort. Please let me know if anything is not working right, or would make your stay better. We are not perfect, and if something was overlooked, let me know during your stay so I can improve it.

Other things to note

We do not charge any cleaning or resort fees.

Lodging tax is collected by airbnb. Weekday rates are less.

Several weekends and some weekdays are three night minimums: all festivals and holidays as well as most weekends in October. July 4th week is a three night minimum. Thanksgiving is a 4 night minimum. Email and ask questions and I'm happy to help!

I must point out again that we are super close to downtown, but in a very quiet, quaint valley.

This wonderful cottage is not one of our pet friendly cottages, but ask us about other pet friendly options.

We ask that all of our guests respect the quiet and privacy of the whole resort. Unreasonable noise, including loud music outside, will not be tolerated.

Keep your speed slow - 5mph or less. We have pets, including geese, that patrol the property, and we require they are given the right of way. No need for driving fast - you are on vacation!

No smoking in any of our cabins, and we do not want any of our cabins smelling of smoke, so do not smoke near an open door which may draw the smoke back inside.

The listing was not totally accurate because there is no wi-FI & the pictures of the lake in back was very misleading because it is completely covered with alge & digusting to look at. There are no flowers in

We absolutely LOVED our time at Faryl's cabin. We had a small issue with wifi connection and Faryl was quick in her response. Especially enjoyed meeting her fur babies. Our kids LOVED meeting the al pacas, llamas, donkeys, dogs and cat. Wonderful experience - we will definitely stay with her again if we return to eureka springs!
