THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE BEST LODGING VALUE IN EUREKA SPRINGS!!
AND NOW FEATURES NOT 1... NOT 2... BUT 3 TREES & TWO OF THOSE HAVE TWINKLE LIGHTS!
The Mountain Chalet offers a King bed, loveseat in front of a cozy Fireplace and Air Conditioning (in season only), Jacuzzi for 2, kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave & coffeemaker, 40" Flat Panel TV, Cable TV with DVD and high speed interent access. And to top it all off a BIG deck that has a glider for 2 & bistro table & chairs. With its cathedral ceilings and a wall of windows you are sure to experience a visiting deer or two!
Now for those of you who are wondering why we named this the Mountain Chalet let me explain...
When we (Don & Elaine) went to England we went on several unescorted walking tours. Unescorted is where you hike from Inn to Inn and your luggage is transferred for you or it is when you take day hikes out of your self-catering cottage.
We had requested that our hikes be no longer then 6 to 10 miles per day.
On this particular hike we had no idea what to expect as today our hike was ending at “The Mountain Chalet”. So we assumed the end of the hike would be pretty strenuous. Our walk began thru a valley being surrounded by hundreds of trees with dappled sunlight coming through their massive branches, the terrain was pretty level.
We pass our last marker that lets us know that we are about one mile from “The Mountain Chalet”.
We're thinking oh boy... Since we had been hiking through a valley for 5 hours, any minute we’ll be hiking up the side of the mountain to reach our destination. The trail continues to meander thru the valley and we turn a bend and there sits the “Mountain Chalet”!
What a welcoming surprise it was, we were so happy that we didn’t have to hike up to the top of a mountain to reach it.
We asked the hostess how the name "Mountain Chalet" came about. She looked at us rather funny and said, "Did you see the mountain outside" and proceeded to point to the window where you could view the mountains in the distance. Well duh...
We soon discover that it is a well know English Tea Room noted for its scones and clotted cream. So now we are really excited in anticipation of experiencing our first English tea!
After spending four months in England, it never ceased to amaze us how out in the middle of nowhere there would always be a Tea Room filled with patrons!
So we dedicate our Mountain Chalet in fond memory of our trip to England. With its warm red exterior, its cozy cottage feel with burgundy walls and now with bringing the nature in with the 3 wonderfully big trees...
I will never forget that walk through that forest and sitting in front of the fireplace sipping my English tea and experiencing my first taste of England’s amazing clotted cream and learning their defination of a "Mountain Chalet!"

We loved everything. The new decorations in the Mountain Chalet, added after we booked, made it even more
special. We look forward to booking our anniversary celebrations here as well! Mr & Mrs. Hicks
WOW!!!! I can’t describe what a super surprise we felt at your Mountain Chalet! The place was huge and the trees with lights were really cool and the Christmas Tree was the crowning touch! We visit Eureka Springs about every 18 months or so. We go for all the seasons, spring summer, fall and winter. It’s a great escape form the hustle and bustle of the metromess we have here in the Dallas Fort Worth area. We travel all the time and love staying at unique places. No chain hotels for us! We had an absolute great time – Mud Street Café was great as usual, got to join in with the Jazz funeral and made a little side trip to Branson as well while we were up there.
We won’t stay anywhere else now. We will book our trips to Eureka Springs to stay at Oak Crest Cottages!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful place and time.

"Thank you so much for an amazing anniversary weekend! Walt made the reservation at the Mountain Chalet and surprised me. This was the best anniversary ever. We celebrated our 18th and it was most romantic. Walt made me cry with overwhelming joy when we came back from eating at Local Flavors and our room was decorated with candles that were lit, rose petals, rose, Happy Anniversary banner, champagne, romantic music! We danced and enjoyed the romance. Thank you for offering that accommodation! This was the best time that we have spent together in a long time. Walt especially loved the hammock on the balcony. I look forward to coming back again! Don made us feel at home and special."

"Perfect! That's the word to describe our idyllic wedding weekend at Oak Crest Cottages. From the moment we arrived in the picturesque town of Eureka Springs, we knew we made the right choice for our getaway wedding...this Victorian village is straight out of a fairy tale.
Don and Elaine were the perfect host and hostess and the Mountain Chalet was a lovely, comfortable, and secluded honeymoon cottage. The cozy fireplace and private deck made for a wonderful stay.
We'll definitely be back...perhaps for our 1st anniversary!"

"Thanks so much for making our stay and my birthday wonderful. I really enjoyed my first visit to Eureka Springs and will be back. The Mountain Chalet is a great get-away retreat for two. I appreciate you calling and letting us know about the weather conditions, but extremely glad we went ahead and came up. Ermillio's was a awesome recommendation for dinner. The food and ambiance of the restaurant was above expectations. The Romance package was a great surprise, including the awesome birthday cake. The carriage ride you arranged for us on Saturday evening was also very enjoyable, complete with electric blankets to keep us warm.
This is one birthday I will never forget. The only way it could have been any better would have been to have the Hogs win their game.
Thanks for all that you did. We will see you again.
Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year."

"We had the most wonderful time, a weekend to always remember. We wanted a small cottage, but we settled for the Mountain Chalet! Little did we know, how wonderful and beautiful it was. We could not of been happier staying at any other place. If you've ever been here you know. The pictures on the website do not do the "Mountain Chalet" justice. You have to come see it! It's wonderful!!!
We'll be back."
Diana & JR Hembree - Moore, OK
"This is such a wonderful place. Don & Elaine...made sure that everything was perfect the whole time we were here. When Elaine says the Mountain Chalet is a special place, she is far under estimating its true appeal. The Romance Package is a must, but keep it a secret for the full effect. We will most definately return in the future, for we were truly impressed.
Thank You so much!"

"Beautiful setting. We were amazed how private we felt as busy as Eureka Springs is.
The Mountain Chalet is perfect for any getaway.
Tricia & Shane Suther - Winfield, KS
"We just wanted to send our thanks for such great accommodations! The place was beautiful. This was our first trip away from our twin babies, and it was just the perfect combination of sight-seeing and R&R. You have a wonderful business -- we wish you well with it. We hope to come back again someday!"
