About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Historic Hockaday Cottage nestled behind the main house on Spring Street is right in the heart of the city cradled in a beautiful private garden and yet only steps to the action of the downtown area. The cottage is 2 story with a sitting area and bedroom upstairs which houses a four poster bed with down bedding. The full kitchen and bath are downstairs. Bath has a soaking tub and shower which sits under an antique stained glass window.

The cottage was originally a carriage house for horses and carriage storage for the original owner Homer McLaughlin and his family in the 1880's. Later he turned the top floor into a small local grocery where the gentlemen would sit beside the wood stove and play cards. When we restored the cottage we found old newspapers and playing cards in the walls as well as tobacco stains on the floors around the original wood burning stove. I can just imagine the stories that were made up in that room......

Why Joe Joy chose Arkansas

We always loved Eureka Springs and visited for years before deciding to move. Spring Street is the main street thru the historic district of town. While being only blocks from the downtown area, it is also very quite and private.

Nice, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

I was must have glossed over the description of bed upstairs and bath downstairs and narrow steep steps. Survived only because we have steep stairs in our home. Upstairs and down were outfitted and decorated well. A bottle of OJ and two muffins in the frig. Graciously gave assistance to connect to Wi-Fi. Parking was available behind the garage apartment. Property up for sale. A place for the young and fit individuals.

Sweet Little Romantic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay at this sweet little cottage. The pictures online don't even do this place justice! When we originally booked the cottage on-line, we thought it looked cute, but were completely surprised when we arrived by how lovely it was. If you are thinking about booking this one, you won't be disappointed! It's just a 10 minute walk downtown. There is a nice little outdoor area for reading and relaxing outdoors; very clean and quiet and so much nicer than staying in a hotel. Thank you for the memories!

"The Perfect Honeymoon"

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hockaday Cottage. Its was very cozy and comfortable there, and we enjoyed every minute. This was the perfect place to go for a Honeymoon. Everything from restaurants to grocery store's were right in the area where the Cottage is so we did not have to travel far at all. Everything was perfect!
