Best things about Staying at the Basin Park Hotel this Summer

Haunted Activity

Come investigate the presences that haunt the hotel.  Hunt with us and let us know of your encounters with the cowboy, the gangster, the musician, the laughing girl on the stairs, the whistler…or a new entity that you might discover!

Join Eureka Springs Paranormal Investigators to investigate the most active spaces within the hotel.  Our Paranormal Investigators teach the evolution of ghost hunting while sharing tales and evidence you won’t believe, the investigation continues as we guide you to spaces from heights of the Crows Nest to the depths of the cave accessed privately by the hidden rabbett hole.  


Easy to Explore

The Basin Park Hotel is literally in the heart of downtown Eureka Springs making it easy access to all the shops and restaurants and you’ll never need to worry about parking.  Stroll up and down the streets and get a bag full of treats at Sugar & Spite, relive your childhood favorites at Tee Rex Toys or pick out a great outfit at Nelson’s or Eureka Clothing Company.    Descend the rainbow (stairs that is!) and enjoy a coffee or baked goods at Bean Me Up Creekside

Later, grab some dinner on the Balcony for a great meal and perfect view, or drinks at Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar 

Convenient to the Trails 

Eureka Springs is home to some of the best mountain biking in Mid-America. Eureka Springs and the Oz Trails system of Northwest Arkansas offer a huge variety of trails for mountain bikers of any experience level, from beginners looking for a scenic ride through breathtaking Ozark Mountains, to seasoned bikers looking for professionally developed routes. Visit Bike Eureka for more information on our trails system.


Area Attractions

Things to do range from wandering through the Eureka Springs Historical Museum to venturing underground for a tour. Don’t miss Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, with its large population of big exotic cats living in a natural habitat. Visit the “Ozarks’ Strangest Dwelling”–Quigley’s Castle–or take a trip back in time on the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway.  Experience an evening of Mystery and Intrigue with Sean-Paul the Illusionist and Juliane Fay the Medium.  Regardless of which Eureka Springs attractions you choose, you’ll be entertained, educated and utterly charmed.


Hotel Activities

You can do as little or as much as you want during your stay.  Relax on our spa deck or soak in the hot tub (you can also use the pool at The Crescent Hotel for free!).   We offer many daily hotel activities like a  behind-the-scenes tour or do some whisky or wine tasting.   You can climb to the rooftop and do some stargazing with our Turss Tube Dobsonian Telescope provided by Explore Scientific, join us in the game room for fun & games, or come to the top floor and get some popcorn and watch a movie.
