Eureka Springs’ Secret Season — January! The streets are quieter & town is low-key. De-stress, unwind, re-group, re-energize. The holidays are fun but often leave us needing a bit of down time.
We suggest massage and Spa appointments as well as relaxing by the fireplace in your Pond Mountain jacuzzi cabin or suite. January weather is often mild & it’s a great time for eagle-watching & checking out wildlife from your veranda, deck or front porch. Arkansas is a winter home for Canada geese & mallard ducks. Hike around the 130-acre estate, fish our twin ponds. We are family & pet-friendly, too!
Nestled in the scenic Arkansas Ozarks, Pond Mountain Lodge is an easy 5 minutes from downtown Eureka Springs; in addition to massage, Spa, fine dining & fabulous shopping, there are plenty of exciting January events:
We celebrate MardiGras Eureka-style, with a King’s Day Kick Off Jan 6th; meet the 2018 Royal Court at the Rowdy Beaver on Hwy 62 West.
