Historic Bed & Breakfast Questionnaire
Year erected: 1887
What is the history of the property?
The property sits on approximately two acres of woods and gardens on the historic loop. It has two houses and two carriage houses. One house (Sweet House) was built by a man and his wife and their three daughters. He had 30 acres. This is where we have two suites and two dining rooms for breakfast.

The other house (Ojo House) was built by wealthy lumberman from Wichita, Kansas. His wife was Spanish. He believed he could keep his property "unincorporated" by the city if he named his own street so he had his wife name it. She chose the name "Ojo" due to the beautiful views (the property rests on the highest peak in Eureka Springs). The street is still officially Ojo Street, but is only about 100 feet and only Ojo house sits on it.
What was the era and/or the architectural style in which the property was built?
Victorian
Is the property surrounded by other historic buildings?
Yes, it's on the historic loop. The entire town is on the historic register.

We have and continue to host guests from all over the world (England, Netherlands, Ireland, India, etc).
