Eureka Springs, Arkansas is an idyllic get-away from the hassle bustle of the city. Enjoy the breathtaking views of the Ozark mountains, revel in the myriad of shops and artist galleries as well as a huge selection of spas that will relax you from head to toe. Or just meander the streets ooo-ing and ahh-ing over the Victorian gingerbread houses that line the narrow streets of the historic loop district.
I was excited to visit the acclaimed hunted Crescent Hotel built in 1886. This was “the” place to go and be healed by the mineral-rich waters of the natural hot springs in the area. Apparently, some visitors liked it so much they never left. The Crescent Hotel is perched on the top of a hill overlooking the lush greenery of the mountains and valleys that surround it.
When I entered the hotel’s grand entrance I was drawn at once to the art deco pipe organ with its stained glass and hand carves ladies. While it is no longer in use I could just hear the sound of it playing in days of old.
The grand entrance also has one of the most intriguing fireplaces I have ever seen.
But the grand entrance didn’t hold my attention for long as I was literally pulled, camera in hand, to the staircase leading up to the rooms.
The activity in this hotel seriously vibrates through you as you walk the halls.
On the second floor, I stopped dead in my tracks at room 216. As you can see this room is active with spirits. They are even coming out of the walls.
The staircase is so active I can’t even count all the orbs. Can you?
I purposely didn’t read anything about the ghosts at the Crescent as I wanted a clean experience. But I understand they have a ghost tour you can take if you don’t just want to roam the halls with your camera. They are even down by the pool. Eureka Springs was well worth the trip and the Crescent was a lovely step back in time. I understand why the resident ghosts don’t want to leave.
