Midwest Living® September/October 2011:
At Heartstone Inn Bed and Breakfast, sisters Pat Henderson and Jane Vanderstraaten ply innkeeper Cheri Rojek for the ingredients in her garlicky hominy grits. They meet here three times a year, and when asked about their plans for the day, the sisters don’t hesitate: shopping.
“Spring is gorgeous. Summer you tolerate. But fall is our favorite time,” Pat says. Petunias still bloom on the porch, but the leaves have begun to turn. Fall is familiar. As kids, their father brought them here for apple and sorghum harvests. They’ve come to Eureka Springs at every stage of their lives. Maybe, more than shopping, what brings them and so many back is the sense that in this funny little town in the mountains, you can stop the clock for a few days and just be.

At day’s end, rest your head at a quaint bed-and-breakfast like The Heartstone Inn or The Inn at Rose Hall—both just a short walk from downtown. From your temporary dwelling to the city’s flourishing surrounds, the people of Eureka Springs are sure to offer their famous warm welcome, proving that the town’s healing power extends well beyond its storied springs. . The Heartstone Inn, a 1903 late-Victorian home, features a welcoming wraparound porch, a gazebo and back deck overlooking a woodsy haven, and a tree-lined walkway that guides guests to the town’s historic district, less than a mile away.
