Reeves' Story

Trina and Gary first met when thet were set up by her cousin (Ashley ) at a K.C. Chiefs football game they were intrigued by each other. Their first date was in February, where she slipped on the ice while he was trying to be smooth and open the door for her, things came full circle when she slipped at their wedding, while getting pictures taken, and he caught her! Trina said Gary proposed in their bedroom, in his underwear, after work. 

Trina and Gary were married here at Eureka Springs Treehouses and said "It was a beautiful location and a beautiful ceremony! We couldn't have asked for a better place!! Thank you so much!!"

The Atkinson's Story!

My brother & sister-n-law set us up. The first time we met Chuck was picking up a kitten from my brother. About six months later my sister-in-law asked me if I'd be interested in going out with him. So we exchanged e-mail address first, then not long after we agreed to a barbecue at my bother house. After that we decided to date which lead to our marriage.

It was the week before valentine's and we had a valentines day banquet to go to at our church. We were at Chucks house talking about marriage and watching tv then he asked me if I wanted to see the ring and I told him only if I can have it. Next thing I know He's got the ring and is down on his knees in front of my recliner asking me to marry him.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:

We have enjoyed our stay very much. The treehouse is beautiful! We really like the ceremony, it was a simple ceremony but beautiful and we loved the blessing and prayer over the rings. For us that meant a lot. Christ is very important to us. Thank you for the clean & beautiful treehouse. The wedding and pictures all meant a lot to us!

The Averyt's Story!

Jeromy had huge plans for his proposal! My company was having a Christmas party and Diamon Rio was going to be singing. My mom & him had asked that he be allowed to propose in front of everyone! It turned out that they would not allow this to happen, so he went with plan B. 

He had my ring hidden for almost 2 months waiting for the perfect opportunity. At our annual family trip, he had the ring hidden in his coat pocket. At my request, my mom snapped a picture of us in front of the Christmas tree. 

Unknown to me, Jeromy had slipped the ring out of his pocket and had it in his hand. I said, “Oh one more picture, just in case it wasn't good". Jeromy said ok but it would be better like this, he got on one knee & asked me to be his wife. My mom already had the camera, so we had our special moment captured. It was the best Christmas surprise ever!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We were absolutely blown away! Our stay was absolutely perfect & magical. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded.
The treehouse was our own private sanctuary, but yet so close to everything. Don & Elaine's attention to detail & kindness made our Elopement/Wedding Day stress free & perfect! We highly recommend the Ultimate Wedding Package.
Thank you Don & Elaine
Mr. & Mrs. Averyt

The Berning's Story!

Thank you both so much for making our trip WONDERFUL! We could not have asked for two better people to marry us. You guys were great and really made us feel like you cared so much about what you were doing. You made us feel so comfortable and happy.

You guys were just the opposite and made are special day extra special and we will remember you FOREVER. We could not say THANK YOU enough. We well definitely stay with you again when we return." 

The Bowerman's Story!

We have been together for 6 years and finally decided to tie the knot. We wanted something private and romantic and Eureka Springs Treehouses was perfect. They are secluded & perfectly romantic. 
We definitely will be back. Plus Don & Elaine made you feel just like family. They were awesome & so sweet."
Holly & Brandon Bowerman - North Little Rock, AR

The Brewer's Story!

Monty came in for a hair cut at Carrie's work and continued to do so once a week for about a month until Carrie agreed to go out to dinner with him. They have now been together for seven years.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"Thank you for making our wedding so perfect. The tree houses are breath taking." 
Monty & Carrie Brewer - Ponca City, OK

The Carpenter's Story!

Eric and I both work a lot. Both of our families signed us up for on-line dating. I was about to give up but decided I would go out with Eric if it didn't work I was closing my account. I am so glad I did because we hit it off from the start. He proposed to me on Christmas night. He tied the rings around his dogs' necks. (They are his babies.) I was sitting on the couch. The dogs came in with him, he got down on one knee and asked me.
I have waited so long for a man to love me for me. When he looks at me I truly feel that he does. Thank you again for making my day so very special!

And we just wanted to say how impressed we were with everything. You went to great lengths on details from the decor of the Castle Treehouse, the quality of the cake, very special wedding day. It was a wonderful experience. We cannot wait to plan anniversary getaways! 

The Carter's Story!

We actually met in 2002 at the restaurant where I worked and remained friends until we met up again in 2011. In October 2011, we began dating. We always liked each other but he is 7 years younger than me so I guess I always thought he was too young for me. So after a year and a half of dating we are now happily married. 

We had only been dating a very short time and decided to go away for the weekend. The first night Kevin had caught the stomach virus and was so very sick. Well the next day he was feeling much better so we went to an outlet mall to shop. As the day went on, I began feeling sick. By dinner time, I didnt even want to eat. I asked him if we could go back to the hotel and I spent most of the night in the bathroom. Not really what a girl wants a guy she is newly dating to see or hear her doing.

His first proposal occured after an argument. We had been arguing on the phone and I gave up and hung up the phone. A few minutes went by and I heard a knock at the door, it was Kevin. When I opened the door he got down on one knee, took my hand and asked if I would marry him. A few weeks later we went to Oklahoma City for my doctors appointment and he suggested we go ring shopping so we found the perfect diamond and the rest is history.

Comments about Oak Crest Cottages/Eureka Springs Treehouses/Your wedding etc...We have absolutely loved our time here! The weather was unseasonably cooler and snowing but it just made the pictures more beautiful! We stayed in the Paris Treehouse, it was beautiful and so perfect! Thank you all so much for making our wedding and honeymoon so perfect!

The Cook's Story

We are not quite sure how we meet. We had an mutual friends and somehow met. We gradually became best friends. The rest is history.

We had dicussed marriage for a few months before he popped the questions. He always asked me how I felt about the proposal. All I ever said was, "I wanted to be surprised, and I want my family to be a part of it". Alecs proposed on December 12th, our anniversary of a year, at my grandparents house. It shocked me. Needless to say, he surprised me.

Photos online usually make you think its going to be great, but its never as good as the photos. The Venice Treehouse was amazing! IT WAS WAY BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS. We were shocked by the privacy and intimacy. The treehouse was so clean & beautiful. Thank You! The wedding was so seamless. We had no worries. We did not feel rushed. Thank you for helping out with the "photo shoot"! You were more than patient. You were willing to stay as long as we wanted for pictures and thought you were bothering us by taking too many pictures of us. For anyone who might read this online, we are more than pleased with our stay and will be back to visit in the near future.

The Crumbaugh's Story!

Thank you so much! We had the best time ever...everything was absolutely perfect! We plan on going back for our anniversary. Thanks again and oh...I wanted to let you know that the pictures you took were absolutely amazing...thank you so much for making our day so special!

The Danbury's Story!

We had such a wonderful weekend. Thanks for making our special day so special. We can't wait to make yearly anniversary trips back to Eureka and back to your Treehouses. Every single part of the stay was amazing and made us feel special. I'm excited that our picture is part of your website, we have been so excited to tell all of our family and friends about our stay/wedding with you guys.

Our Story: Michael and I met through a mutual friend/family member. She just knew that we were made for one another. Our first date was a motorcycle ride on a beautiful day in May 2012. It didn't take us long to realize that we were falling heads over heels in love with one another. In September 2013 we found out that we were expecting a baby in May 2014 and decided that we wanted to be married before our little princess was set to arrive. We knew that we wanted a simple, relaxing wedding experience and found Oak Crest Treehouses online. We are so HAPPY that we chose to have our wedding there. It was the most amazing, relaxing weekend. The hospitality we received from the moment we arrived was amazing. Our wedding at the new Waterfall Chapel was simple and intimate. And all of the personal touches made it a weekend we will always remember. We plan on making many anniversary trips to Oak Crest Treehouses in the future!! Thanks for everything.

The Davis's Story!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We had an AMAZING time during our stay at the Santa Fe Treehouse. The staff are very friendly and unobtrusive. You never see them yet the room is so neat & nice. Our wedding was simple and beautiful; it was perfect. The romance surprise was wonderful with perfect touches. Thank you so much for making my wedding & honeymoon something I will always remember very fondly! We have already decided we will be back; we are going to try and make it a yearly thing for our anniversary. We wouldn't stay anywhere else but here. Thank you so much Ron & Tammy!

The Edward's Story

Kylie & Matt were childhood sweethearts who reunited....

"This was a wonderful experience for us both. It was perfect. We were looking for a quite, stress free, romantic get away. We couldn't have planned it better. The cottages were absolutely beautiful. No better place to spend our first days as a married couple. The wedding was short and sweet, it focued on us and our love. We wanted all the specialness and meaning without the stress. That is exactly what we got here in Euerka. We plan to be back to celebrate anniversaires. Thank you so much for the many memories". Kylie & Matt Edwards

The Edward's Story!

We had a mutual friend that I had known since third grade and Jason had known since high school. There had been plenty of opportunity over the years to meet, but never did. Then one night, my friend and I went out for a girls night and she ran into him! Everything else is history, but use pretty much knew from the very first time use actually spent time together that use would spend the rest of our lives as husband and wife!

Comment About Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"Thank you guys so much! This was so much more than I could have ever even dreamed! We wanted a very simple and quiet wedding for just the two of us and it was so much more than that! Jason kept saying how good I had done when I found you guys! Thank you for making our day so special! 
Our Sante Fe Treehouse was breathtaking! From the moment we walked in. I was giddy! It is everything I could have possibly dreamed! Thank you so much for making our wedding days so perfect!" Carey Edwards

The Eliason's Story!

I was a reluctant programmer just trying to keep to myself. I had just gotten out of a long relationship and was enjoying my time alone, but then this beautiful co-worker expressed an interest in me. I played very hard to get thinking she could move on but that didn't happen. After a long while I decided to go ahead and give her a chance. We have been together ever since. She stole my heart a soul without me ever knowing. We had already been together for eight years and I kept telling myself that I would never get marrried. She had been married once before and that was rough on her. Basically I couldn't sleep one night and really thought about the two of us together. I realized that I really couldn't live without her and decided that now was the right time. I woke up and then woke her up, looked in her eyes and asked her to marry me. She said yes so I got to work on finding out houw to do it.

Comments about Treehouses "You have a beautiful place. I would recommend it to anyone either for a wedding or just getting away from your busy life. This place is so peaceful"-Bryan Eliason

The Frederick's Story!

We meet each other from our sons playing soccer together a few years ago. We didn't speak again until, one day we ran into each other on a dating site. Once we realized that we knew each other, we exchanged numbers. Within a week, we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together! We basically skipped the whole dating part, but we wouldn't change a thing. When you know, you know!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We had a wonderful experience here at Eureka Springs Treehouses. We loved our treehouse that we stayed in. We had a beautiful wedding! Thank you so much for making it special for us.

The Fredericks

The Glasgow's Story

Judy and I met through a mutual friend who is also our hair person. Judy lived in the Dallas, Texas, area and was divorced after thirty something years of marriage and contemplating moving back to Ada, Oklahoma, where we now live and where she grew up and has family. We met for drinks and I felt she was the most elegant and exciting lady I had ever met. It was a whirlwind romance! After dating for six months, Judy did move to Ada and purchased a home. She still owns her boat business in Dallas and is able to supervise its operation on a regular basis via telephone from Ada-we are 120 miles north of Dallas.
After dating one year at Christmas, I proposed and her first statement was "Bob, where are we going to put your clothes?". We have many common interests from OU football games, training at the fitness center, long leisurely conversations, church and traveling. We look forward to a many happy years together. Thanks for making our initial memories very enjoyable!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"Thank you, Dawn. We really enjoyed our stay! Count on us to tell people about our positive experience. I am an insurance agent and believe me, positive word of mouth is the "best" form of advertising." 
Bob and Judy Glasgow

The Hays' Story!

Mike & Dawn both work in the oilfied industry. As american as apple pit and baseball. It was love at first site! we were both totally infatuated with each other! I'm not sure if we knew it then, but we were destine to be together.

When I was to meet Mike's parents for the first time. It was Fathers day 2008. I was so excited that I made a special point to get my hair done! Not being from the area where we lived & worked I tried a salon based soley on the gact it was "new" and looked "cool". The girl messed my hair up so bad we called my hair "the coat of many colors'! Needless to say those pictures of Fathers day were memorable, but as usual Mike was so sweet about it! He always says I'm beautiful no matter what! I love him so much for that!

We absolutley love this place! So Sweet! So Clean! So Very romantic! We couldn't have had a more special day! We will be coming back for our many anniversaries to come. Oak Crest Cottages are the only way to go! Awsome! From the beautiful, private treehouse cottage surrounded by the beauty of nature. From the wedding ceremony in the sweetest little chapel I've ever seen, and the romantic candle lit picnic supper surrounded by rose petals. Our special day was so perfect! Thank you Ben and Dawn for all of this. See you, next year on our first anniversary! Mike & Dawn Hays

The Hensley's Story!

How we met!
I met Chris through my neighbor. Chris and I really didn't talk much, but my neighbors tried to get us together for a long time. I didn't think he was interested in me and I really wasn't that interested in him. Then one day he called and asked me out, to see a concert. I said sure. We talked all night long and we even missed the concert because we talked all through the concert. 
I had realized that we really didn't give each other a chance to get to know one another and Chris thinks it just wasn't the right time for us to be together. He thinks timing is everything. As far as dating we fell in love instantly, he moved in and never left. I'm glad we still waited 6 years until we got married because we both wanted to make sure this is what we both really want, even though I wanted to marry him within the first week.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We would like to thank you both for our perfect day, it was everything we wanted and more. We absolutely loved the New York Treehouse and we were so impressed with how clean everything was. We have already recommended Oak Crest Cottages (Eureka Springs Treehouses) to everyone we know. Dawn we loved the pictures you took, but the thing I was most impressed with was that we got a copy of our vows. We will definitely be framing those.

The Herrmann's Story!

My sister and brother in law invited me over to hangout for the night and Cole happened to be one of my brother in laws friends and came to hangout in the same night. You could definately say it was sort of set up! (That we didn't know about). Well we didn't hit it off at first, but it didn't take long at all fro us to know we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.

First date cole decided he wanted to take me half way across the state for our first date! I hesitated but finally agreed, well we didn't say but maybe 2 words the whole drive! When we got there he took me ontop of a mountain and kissed me, then we left. (You could say he was nervous). We decided we were hungry, drove around for awhile. Le me remind you, we are from the country and we accidentally picked the fanciest place to eat!!! (dressed in shorts and t-shirts). Definatley a disaster, but something we laugh about now!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: Wonderful stress free experience! Exactly what we were looking for! Everything was perfect!

The Hitchcock's Story!

"Thanks so much... Everything was perfect and beautiful. The wedding went smoothly and was very enjoyable. The time that you spent putting the little special things together made the trip so worth while. Brian and I are both so happy that we decided to exchange vows at Eureka Springs Treehouses. We could not have expected anything more. Thanks so much!!!"

The Jones's Story

Thank you for everything you guys did! The camera malfunctions were quite funny honestly. Like Don, we to were happy that we were able to get to know him as well. It made it more special and also makes for a funny story! 

Also, thank you so much for the romantic night that you set up in our room. That was so nice to come back too. It made the entire experience that much more special. Everything was great, the cake was wonderful too! It was also big enough to bring home and share with our family. I wanted to fill out the story about us, I just was so tired that night. 

Adam and I met at a bar in OKC that we worked at as bartenders together. We defiantly had a connection from the first time we met. I went with Adam after work one night to his Bid Day party for his fraternity and that was it, we were together from then on. That was just a little less than 3 years ago. We are truly best friends and are madly in love. 

We want to thank you both, Don and Elaine for making our wedding so very special. We definately want to come back next year for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful!! 
Thank you! 
Stephanie and Adam Jones

The Kilpatrick's Story!

"Seeing the treehouse for the first time was the most amazing thing we could have ever imagined. We knew from that moment it would be the most memorable weekend of our lives. It is we feel the most beautiful place in Eureka to get married.
Thank you two so much. We will never forget this weekend. You made it so amazing for us."
Allen & Lisa Kilpatrick - Fayetteville, AR

Thank you for everything!

Alan and Lisa

The Lazenby's Story!

Ron proposed to me on Christmas Eve at my sister's house, with my family and his children present. Everyone knew about the proposal (except me). The ring was wrapped in multiple boxes; as I opened the first box, there were batteries in the box and I wasn't sure what it was because I was thinking it was a gift from my 6-year old nephew. As I continued to open boxes and get to the third box, I realized what was happening, and when I looked up everyone was videoing and taking pictures of me.

Our experience here was awesome. The Ultimate Wedding Package was romantic and beautiful. The Waterfall setting was memorable and a great experience. We will highly recommend Eureka Springs Treehouses to family and friends and we hope to return in the future.

The Lupfer's Story

Clayton and Hilary were married on 5/25/2019.

Hilary was working at a coffee shop and Clay came in on Valentine's Day of 2012. He left his coffee mug at the end of the evening with his name and phone number written on it. Hilary called it the next day.

After being toger for more than six years, Clay proposed to hilary on the day of her graduation with her Master's Degree. She was so surprised she said, "Are you proposing?!" When she turned around, he was on one knee.

"We cannot express how much we enjoyed our time here! Everything was absolutely perfect and we couldn't have picked a better place to get married!"

The Luttrell's Story!

Well...Before we dated, we met at a bar 4 years before. Tony paid no attention to me. I thought he was full of himself. What I didn't know is that his band was about to take stage and he was very nervous. Four years pass and we both ended up going to a mutual friends birthday party. We started talking and have been together ever since.

So...When we first met, after talking all night, it came to the point where we would exhange numbers. I was a little taken back when he refused to take my number. WHAT??? He claims that he used this approach because I was the "Most beautiful girl in the world", and he didn't want to seem to anxious or persistant. He wanted to make sure I was indeed interested...and I WAS!

The Proposal:
We went to Hot Springs for a weekend. We had been talking about going away for a weekend for about a year. So I didn't think much about it. On the last day, we were walking some of the trails and when sunset hit, we sat on a bench to take a break. Tony pulled out the box (ring) and asked me. I said YES!!! Then he asked if I wanted to see the ring?? (He had not opened the box yet.)

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"The treehouse we stayed in (Santa Fe) was beautiful. We couldn't of asked for a better Wedding/Honeymoon. The ceremony was perfect, small and special. Just the way we hoped it would be."
Barbara & Tony Luttrell - Memphis, TN

The Mahlan's Story!

We met when I worked at a Toyota dealership. Stephanie would bring her car in to get it serviced. We both thought each other were cute. And we were both scared to say anything. One day her Stepmom (who worked there) told me what Stephanie thought of me. She told me to ask Stephanie out. If it wasn't for her Stepmom we wouldn't be here right now.

How did he propose?
I took Stephanie down for a weekend stay in her hometown. One day we went riding our bikes. We stopped at a gazebo in a park. I pulled the ring out and asked her. I did have two glasses and champagne in my backpack.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: We loved every bit! We will definately be back!

The Marlow's Story!

We met at the hospital where we both worked. I am a Registered Nurse and Mike is a Respiratory Therapist.

The Proposal:
Mike had set up a massage table with candles and rose petals all around. He made an amazing dinner. For dessert he made a Chocolate Mousse. The ring was sticking out of the Chocolate Mousse, he then got down on one knee and asked "will you marry me?" It was very romantic.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouse:
The Wedding was stress free. The Treehouse was beautiful. The Romance Package, when we walked in it was breathtaking. We loved it! It made our night so special and romantic.

The Maudlin's Story!

How we met:
Chase was a manager in the Wal-Mart photo lab. I came in and was having problems scanning my pictures. He came over and helped me scan all my photos. After I got all my prints, he asked me for my number and the rest is history. 

The Proposal:
He took me into a jewelry store to just look at some things. He asked me what kind of ring I would want if we got engaged. When I showed him what I liked, he bought it on the spot, got down on one knee, and proposed. 

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We have really enjoyed staying here! The service was fantastic! The treehouses are amazing! We never wanted to leave. This was more than I expected and everything was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better place to get married. We will be back next year for our one year anniversary. Thanks for everything!

The McCollam's Story

Kyle's Proposal!
Kyle had won a trip for two at work to Miami, FL in November, 2007. We stayed at Embassy Suites right on the beach north of Miami. The first night there we went for a walk on the beach and had a glass of wine. It was there that Kyle proposed. Unbelievably romantic!

Comments about Oak Crest Cottages/Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"We looked at several lodging/wedding options in and around Eureka Springs for our wedding. During the process of elimination, we consistently kept going back to Eureka Springs Treehouses for several reasons, we were looking for something private, intimate, but yet personable. Many times when shopping online pictures are so deceiving, but let us assure you the Eureka Springs Treehouses will greatly exceed your expectations. From the entrance with the iron gate, the up lighting of the trees along the drive, landscaping and the awesome waterfall, will make this the most secluded, peaceful and relaxing stay. We stayed in the “Santa Fe Treehouse” and found it to be absolutely breathtaking. The color scheme, fireplace, two TV's, double Jacuzzi with a view to the treetops, and lighting on dimmers are just a few of the amenities that made our stay the most romantic stay ever.
When we checked in we knew right then we had definitely made the right decision in choosing Eureka Springs Treehouses as the setting for our wedding. We even stayed an extra night and moved to the “Mountain Chalet” at Oak Crest Cottages and found this just as remarkable as the Santa Fe Treehouse.
Don and Elaine love what the do and treat you like part of their family. Because of them, our wedding memories will last a lifetime! We can't get back there soon enough!!"
Kyle & Angie - Topeka, KS

The McIntosh's Story!

The Meredith's Story


The Miller's Story!

Here's the scoop from Melissa:
We met online and talked for a few weeks. One day, we decided to talk on the phone. While on the phone, we realized that we had about 3 mutual friends from our past. We, then, met for the first time. We have made God the center of our relationship and plan to continue to do so. God has truly blessed us.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
"We want to thank you for a very special wedding and honeymoon. Everything was perfect.
You all made us feel very special during our stay and we look forward to returning for our 1 year anniversary!" 

Melissa & Kerry Miller - Stratford, MO

The Miller's Story!

How we met:
Well...I just happen to be interviewing potential employees and one had asked if I was married. I was hesitant but said "no". She stated that she had met her husband on the internet. That seemed so far fetched to me BUT...I said why not? maybe I should give it a try. My tagline was " THIS IS SOOO NOT ME!" I was online for about 2 weeks when I received an email from David. We emailed back and forth for about a month before we exchanged numbers. I was leaving on a business trip and he just so happened to know the route that I would be taking. So he was my navigator. Once I returned home, he asked me out and asked if it was ok if his daughter came along because he had her everyday during the summer. I said yes and we met at a restaurant. His daughter ended up sitting beside me and I enjoyed every minute of it as I have a son the same age. We finished dinner and she wanted to go to the movies and asked me to go as well...I did and we have been together everyday since. He says that he knew from the moment I walked in that he was going to be in trouble (lol).

The Proposal:
We had talked about marriage for awhile. The final night for the decision was one night we went to dinner with another couple and stopped for a drink. He asked if I was ever going to set a date. I first said July, he responded with "can't you find something a little sooner!"So we had 2 weeks to get everything together and everything went so smooth and fell right into place perfectly.

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: This place was recommended to me by another employee. We viewed online and decided this was EXACLTLY what we had in mind for our wedding. 
It was PERFECT. I would highly recommend Oak Crest to any and everyone.

The Rexon's Story

Michael and Jennifer Rexon were married on 4/5/2019.

They met over 12 years ago through mutual friends. They talked every night on the phone. It wasn't anything serious, so they each started dating someone else. Michael married and later divorced someone else. 5 years went by and they started talking again. From that point they were together ever since.

One year they went on a cruise together and he decided to do a Hairy Man Competition. He had to flex his muscles and dress like a woman with a big hat. He won second place.

Michael proposed at their favorite restaurant, Salt Grass.

"This experience was absolutely phenominal. I wouldn't of changed a thing. Eureka Springs Tree Houses made my wedding experience memorable. I would give it 5 stars. And will definately be back for our Anniversary or whatever excuse we can use to come back. Thank you."

The Sansaucie's Story!

Rick was a childhood friend of my older sister and there were friends on facebook. I had lost my son last year and was struggling with it. He sent me words of encouragement and told me I was too beautiful to cry. We started talking regularly and we met for a date. We dated briefly and he told me he loved me and we should get married and we did!

He told me he love me on our first date and I told him he was crazy, but look at us now! We took a drive to a park near my house and we walked to a gazebo overlookng the Mississippi and he said the most beautiful thing and asked me to be his wife. I SAID YES!

Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: This has been such a wonderful experience. It could not have been any better. From the moment we check in, the wedding, the treehouse and everything that made it so romatic (the rose petals, music, candles etc) beautiful.

The Smith's Story

Tiffany and Stephanie were introduced by mutal friends about 8 years ago, engaged for the past three. Their proposal was a romantic night on 7 mile Beach in Jamaica at sunset in 2021. They were married here this Spring, "the cave was a true delight the incredible amount of artistic talent that went into the creation of such a beautiful place" - Tiffany and Stephanie 

The Snyder's Story!

Thank you so much for helping us enjoy a memorable wedding. We absolutely loved the treehouse and all the accommodations. When we entered the gate at the entrance we thought the privacy of the property was really nice. But when we entered our treehouse, it was "Wow!" The treehouse was beautiful. The decor was warm and welcoming. The lights in the tree as well as the fireplace and jacuzzi were really awesome. When we tell our friends, they say "a jacuzzi in a treehouse?" The atmosphere was very relaxing and comfortable. The town of Eureka Springs is also beautiful. We enjoyed how motorcycle-friendly everyone was and had many conversations with local folks about our adventure from Pennsylvania to Eureka Springs to get married. We have been sharing our stories of Eureka Springs with everyone and highly recommending the town as a "must visit" locale.
Mark and I were introduced by a mutual friend who realized how much we both love riding our motorcycles. Once we met and starting sharing our riding stories, we found out how much we had in common. And that's how our adventure started. We ride as often as we can, weeknights after work and weekends too. And of course, our wedding and honeymoon had to be an adventure on two wheels. We left Pennsylvania on our Harley's and traveled through West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri before arriving in Arkansas. Once we departed Eureka Springs, we visited Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia and Maryland before we returned home to Pennsylvania. Our complete adventure had us visiting 13 states in 7 days. The week was rainy with severe storms in the area, but the weather gods and travel gods watched over us and we made it home safely and relatively dry.
Once again we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for truly making our wedding memorable. Dawn and Ben were very helpful when we initially contacted you and helped us make our reservations. Elaine and Don, you made our stay special. We loved how you made our wedding ceremony comfortable and laughed along with us as we enjoyed the ceremony at the waterfall. It was amazing that during the cloudy and rainy week we had that the clouds parted and we could be married in the sunshine. Best of luck to you and maybe we should plan a trip back to Eureka Springs to visit you on our anniversary! 
Mark and Jennifer Snyder

The Tilden's Story!

Dawn and Ben , Ray and I would like to say thank you for making our day very special! Loved the photos ! We loved our room ! The best part was having enough room to have our first dance as husband and wife! 
I will say on march 29th I married my best friend! And he married his! Ray proposed to me on a horse and carriage ride in eureka springs on august 19th last year. This is why we chose to go back to a very romantic place to wed. We chose the tree houses for the peace.
Our whole experience was much more romantic the way our room was romantically done when we came back! The fact that you made room for my big dress was wonderful! Our ceremony was perfect because we are two people that have longed for the love we have for such a long time that we were beginning to wonder if we would ever find it! Well I will say yes we did and thought faith,communication and understanding we fell in love! We both have been truely blessed from God above and standing facing ray I knew I am truly blessed ! So thank you it was a beautiful time Even with the rain It was still perfect ! THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN ! Sincerely Cyndi and Ray Tilden

The Valente's Story!

We met through my ex-bestfriend and his younger brother. My bestfriend (at the time) was friends with his brother. So she introduced William to her older sister.. He is 8 years apart from me. So when we first met I was like 13/14. So years go by and around mid 2013 I saw him in Wal-Mart, I went up to him and said, "WILLIAM!!!!! haha" and I ran up to him and gave him a hug. Well a couple weeks later I contacted him on FB (FaceBook) just mutual talking. One night at work, I didn't have ​a ride home. So he came an HOUR away just to take me home. Well before he took me home we stopped at the lake and had a wonderful time just talking, then he took me home and before I got out of the car he pulled me towards him and kissed me. Couple days later went on a date and in the movie theater before the movie started he asked, "Will you be my girlfriend?" Of course you can guess what my answer was. :)

A funny date memory is when we went to a local Japanese Steak House and Hibachi Grill. I NEVER had sushi before so we ordered what they call the "Mistake Roll". With me never eating sushi, I thought the "green stuff" was guacamole. Next thing I know I'm coughing and my mouth is on fire and William looks at me and starts laughing! Now every time we eat sushi I dare not touch the "green stuff" haha.

His proposal is a movie scene proposal. On April 8th, 2014, all day long William was like, "Where did we eat on our first date?" Me: "I think it was either Diamond Head or McDonalds." Then a couple seconds later he was like, "I wanna go see a movie." "Alright, what movie?" So we looked up a movie to go see and we decided on Divergent. On our first date we went to go see After Earth. We get ready to go eat and to go watch a movie. Well while I was getting ready he went somewhere, I didn't know where at the time. After dinner at Diamond Head he went to the movie theaters, he wouldn't let me out of the car for like 10 minutes. Finally " he gets out of the car and says, "You can get out now. haha" As I'm getting out of the car I'm hearing "All of Me" by John Legend playing from his phone. He starts to hold me in the sunset. By the middle of the song he gets down on one knee and asks "AmyRose, will you be my wife?" I started crying and I said "Yes of course!"

Our Treehouse was wonderful! We stayed at the Manhattan Tree House. We also got the Romance Package, (I recommend for newly weds!). I didn't want to leave at all.

The Walker's Story!

Thank you so much for a great and memorable Wedding. The stay here and the carriage ride was absolutely beautiful.

The Wallace's Story

Kevin and Meredith met at a Texas Roadhouse after talking online for about a month. They did not admit it to each other until months later, but they both knew the moment they laid eyes on each other that they instantly fell in love.

Prior to Kevin proposing, they had discussed getting married someday. Meredith told him that if he want to marry her, he should do it in a tux and he told her that he would would "NEVER" wear a tux. "I get what I want obviously."

Kevin proposed to here on her birthday on July 4th. Although they had discussed marriage, his proposal was a complete surprise to her that day. She said yes with absolutely no hesitation. 

"Our stay and elopement was absolutely fantastic. The Avatar Cavern of Mystical Trees is amazing and is just what we were looking for. We definitely plan to return many many times in the years to come. Thank you!!"

The William's Story!

The William's Story!

How did you meet?

We were neighbors 20 years ago. Life took us seperate directions and different marriages, but we always kept in touch. When we both found ourselves alone, we came together and it grew into what we have today.

 Funny dating story?

We went to the Bahamas. I, Bobbi, had never seen the ocean before. When we walked outside and I saw it for the first time I was overcome by the beauty and began to cry. He thought something was wrong and got all concerned. When I explained he wrapped me in a big hug. :)

 How did he propose?

We flew into the Grand Canyon by helicopter for a riverside brnch. I was standing n awe surveying the beauty of where we were. I turned and he was down on one knee holding the ring!
