Seven stories tall, all ground level.

You want quirky? We've got quirky and unique here in circa 1880 Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Ours is a town of hills and hollows. In fact Eureka Springs has often been called the stair step town. Nearly everything is built into the hillsides of either East or West mountains. There are miles of limestone walls holding it together, and lots of stairways as well. Among other benefits it makes for some great walking tours and photographers love it.

                                      

The large builing pictured here is the Basin Park Hotel. At seven stories tall it is very unusual because each floor accesses the mountain behind it allowing each floor to be 'ground' level. Ripley's Believe it or Not featured it years ago.

Come see us in one of America's most fun and unusual small towns. A warm welcome awaits you.

Thanks Roger. Charming indeed. Funky, unusual, and 'where the misfits fit', which explains me being here 30 years.

I was there around Christmas time while I visited family in Rogers.  Spent the day in Eureka Springs.  cool town with a lot to offer.  Neat shops and streets, I definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Charles... a great read. Thanks for the discripiton of Eureka Springs. I didn't know that. From a map, all things look flat. When I get down there some time, you'll have to show me the hotel. Seven ground floors, how cool is that.

Interesting.  Since I almost pass out climbing stairs, this would be good for me.  But, of course, you have to climb the mountain.

Jane, Here's the plan. We'll get you in and put you in the elevator. We'll get off on the third floor and demonstrate the concept...no stairs. But yes there are mountains!
