Not long ago, the Methodist church bell rang out from the intersection of Howell & Spring Streets, summoning Eureka residents to church in the historic building that now houses Briarwood Lodge. When we bought the property, we dedicated ourselves to remodeling it with reverence for the sacred and historic legacy of the location, doing our best to ensure that Briarwood Lodge retains the nostalgic ties to its past.
We know we’ve fulfilled our mission when guests who stay in The Overlook, a contemporary-styled suite located in what was the bell tower of the church, marvel at the architecture or are thrilled with the birds-eye view of Spring Street that the tower affords. Others guests testify that staying in the Paris Suite, with its beautifully arched, stained-glass windows and artistic split-level architecture, is a spiritual experience.
To honor the roots of community and family the church planters began so long ago, we created a large”Gathering Room” and comfortable breakfast area just perfect for coffee and conversation. Fun and fellowship never came so naturally! Families, couples traveling together, or friends taking a weekend road trip have group options galore in Briarwood.
Finally, if you really want your trip to Eureka to be heavenly, we offer an impeccably appointed, stylish apartment with a full kitchen, three bedrooms, a living area, and numerous amenities for the discerning traveler who wants a transcendent Eureka Springs experience.
