Angel at Rose Hall Featured in AAA Home and Away Magazine
Eureka Inn Style Angel at Rose Hall Bed and Breakfast Architect Susan Misavage and lawyer hubby Bob Jasinski grew tired of the crazy south-Florida scene, so they took off for Eureka Springs to start a new life as innkeepers. They searched a long time for the perfect property until they fell in love with Angel at Rose Hall Bed & Breakfast.Misavage is a warm-hearted, touchy-feely kind of gal who delights in nurturing the spirit and feeding the tummy. She loves to stuff her guests with delicious goodies like heart-shaped strawberry shortcake, carrot cake and lemon-poppy-seed coffee cake. Guests shouldn’t be surprised if key lime pie shows up for breakfast. “Only someone from Florida would serve key lime pie for breakfast,” she joked.An architect by training, Misavage has a good eye for design. Each of the five large themed suites is filled with elegant antiques and is named after an angel such as Michael, Gabriele and Raphael. “They are ridiculously big, each one is a luxury space,” said Misavage.She spared no expense making each suite a lavish showplace, filled with sumptuous silk and satin, brocade duvets, cascading canopied beds, antique walnut armoires, stained glass and carved fireplaces. Antique Eastlake furniture and old-time ceiling fans accent the luxurious decor.To see the town, visitors should hop on the trolley for a narrated tour: It’s the best way to get an overview of the town’s highlights. Eureka Springs is very pedestrian-friendly. Explorers can park their cars and stroll along the meandering main street in the historic downtown district, admire the ornate Victorian architecture, and check out the art galleries and boutiques.There’s no question about it, Eureka Springs is the bed-and-breakfast, wedding and honeymoon capital of the region. With more than 200 bed-and-breakfasts, there’s bound to be one to suite any style.Planning Your TripFor information on these and other bed-and-breakfasts in Eureka Springs, call (479) 253-7333 or go to www.eurekasprings.org.
