The Secret Season

December 12th, 2010 by Sam Feldman

The Christmas parade is done, the Historic Home tour was fabulous (but wrapped up until next year), the Sweet Treats Tour was a great success yesterday but there is nothing left but crumbs…and the Christmas shopping is starting to wind down. So what’s next? How about just some good old-fashioned hanging out and resting?

Curl up before the fire with a good book

Winter is the Secret Season in Eureka Springs. No crowds, no traffic (no motorcycles!), no noise, nothing but the beautiful mountains and some time alone to relax and refresh. We have lots of books, games, puzzles, magazines and movies. We have fireplaces and whirlpool baths to keep you warm. We have coffee and cocoa in the rooms, popcorn and sweet treats to snack on, and a fresh hot breakfast every morning. Come on, you know you want to do it.

The parlor is full of places to cozy up and books, magazines, puzzles, movies...

This season is a lot of our guests’ favorite. So come find us here and settle in for a rest…Sophie will be glad to cuddle up with you.

Cold and frosty outside, warm and cozy inside!

Merry Christmas!

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
P.S. Winter rates are starting now – $20 – $30 off per night!

Massage Therapy is Your Friend

July 25th, 2010 by Sam Feldman

Relaxation is Eureka Springs’ middle name – if it had one. We have some of the best spas and massage therapists in the country right here in our wonderful mountain town. One of our favorites, that’s included in quite a few of our packages here at the Bridgeford House Bed & Breakfast, is Gryphon’s Roost. This wonderful spa has been around for 14 years and is located at 137 Spring St, just a 5 minute walk from the inn. As stated on their website, “we are here to help YOU get above your everyday life”, Gryphon’s Roost Day Spa and Gallery is all about unwinding as you shop for jewelry, art, bath and body stuff or take advantage of one of their wonderful spa packages. Start out in their outdoor hot tub (where the view is incredible!), move on to a soothing hour-long massage with hot stones and finish up with a restorative facial and eye enhancing treatment to make you look and feel your best. These are only a few of the many options that Gryphon’s Roost provides.  One of the things we like best is their lovely couples room where you can relax with your honey or your best friend while your cares are massaged away.

What more can you ask for? Go by and see them – and tell them Bridgeford House sent you!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!

Massage Therapy Heaven

April 18th, 2010 by Sam Feldman

If there is one thing that Sam loves, it’s a wonderful massage. If there’s one thing that Eureka Springs has, it’s incredible massage therapists. Bridgeford House Bed & Breakfast is centrally located to just about all the great therapists in our spa town. We have quite a few packages that offer massage therapy and therapy extras along with a lot of other goodies (dinner out, carriage rides, lingerie certificates – the list goes on and on!). We are happy to direct you to any spa that may meet your needs.

Sam’s “personal” massage therapist is Alexa Pittenger, of Eureka Massage and Wellness Therapies. Along with a wonderful, soothing atmosphere, Alexa combines hot towels, music that vibrates through your heated table, shoulder and knee pads, aromatherapy, hot rocks and a variety of lotions – and no talking!!!! In addition, she also specializes in other types of work such as biofeedback, lymphatic therapy and reflexology.

We often send ladies on a girlfriends’ getaway up to the New Moon Spa at the historic Crescent Hotel, just a few minutes walk from the Bridgeford House, for a full “spa” experience complete with manicures and pedicures. The “Full Radiance” that is included in the “Chill Out Girls’ Getaway” includes a 1-hour massage, pure focus facial massage and a hand & foot treatment. Scrubs, polishes and saunas can be added on easily.

Gryhon’s Roost, another of our favorites that’s easy to get to on your way from us to downtown and has a wonderful couple’s room, provides a wonderful atmostphere and great therapy. And even though Jeff won’t allow Sam to go try every therapist in town (stingy, isn’t he?), we have heard nothing but absolutely wonderful things about each and every one of them, so come get relaxed!

Warmest regards,

Jeff and Nadara (Sam) Feldman – and Sophie, too!
