The 5 Ojo Inn is a collection of buildings, with very nice and clean rooms. The breakfasts are very good. The owners make everyone feel very welcome. We have stayed in the honeymoon suite on two occasions and this is our first time in the anniversary suite.

The owners are very helpful in offering things to do and tell you what others have done and have enjoyed.

Restaurant

Quote:
Devittos is one of the most popular restaurants in the town. The food is prepared very well and very fast. The service is very quick. My wife had the eggplant Parmesan, and she said it was the best she has had.

The place is small, but the food is great.

Ermilio's opens for dinner at 5pm and there is always a line forming before that. The food is good, but what makes this place special is that everyone working there is highly attentive to your needs. That means not just your waitstaff but everyone.

Attraction

Quote:
The War Eagle Mill has a long history in the area and has been rebuilt many times. The first 2 floors have the still operating grindstone and shopping. You can purchase freshly ground items there. The third floor has a nice snack area where you can get a very good lunch for a good price.

The area around the mill offers a good chance for photography.

Quote:
Every time we get to Eureka Springs we like to take the ghost tour that is available in the hotel. You get a history of the area, hotel, and people of the area.

This trip was after we had watched the Ghost Hunters, TAPS, investigation of the show. It is available to everyone, but it involves walking standing and lasts about an hour and a half to two hours.

Attraction

Quote:
This was our first trip to the cavern. It is located just off the shore of Beaver Lake. The tour is guided by one of the staff who is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and the cavern.

Also for kids both young and old you can pan for your own treasure.

This time we chose Health Works at 75 Mountain Street, (479) 253-7977.
