"Randy bought an RV from me, from the first moment we seen each other we had felt there was something. A month later Randy came back and asked me to go for a ride with him on his motorcycle. I hadn't been on one in over 27 years, but the rest is history. We've been together everyday since. Randy says it's the most expensive RV he has ever bought, he will be paying a lifetime for it!

We knew each other in junior high and high school and had several classes together. We met up again 10 years later over myspace, metting up for our 10 year school reunion. We have been together ever since (3.5 years and married today)! Matt proposed after spending a lovely weekend at a cabin at Mt. Magazine. I was on the balcony looking and taking pictures of the beautiful sunset. When he came behind me and put the ring in front of me with a sweet little something to say before he said "will you marry me"? Of course, it was YES!!
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: Magical, Breathtaking!!!
Matt & Lacie - Conway, AR
Thank you very much for the wonderful wedding experience. You guys were great and we loved the tree house! Sorry it took so long to give you an update, but we've been extremely busy. Can't wait to come and visit and stay at the tree houses again!
We appreciate everything you did for us!
Travis and Jennifer Boren
We owe you a huge THANK YOU for the most wonderful, stress free and beautiful ceremony and stay. We were so impressed withour room, and how you made every detail of our stay perfect.
We loved the pictures of the ceremony and were overwhelmed by everyone's kindness. You truly put the "special" in our special day. We made sure to let ALL of our friends and family know what a wonderful place Eureka Springs Treehouses is, and how much we loved it.
Again, the wedding pictures turned out so much better than we could have imagined.
We will definitely be back soon! Thank you, thank you for making our wedding weekend amazing!
I was a teacher at a local community college where Tracy was a student. We met and became friends instantly. After she finished her schooling we decided to begin to date.
Our first date was funny! Tracy had not dated in over 8 years. So, she invited her son-in-law to go with us to Target to do some Christmas shopping. As the night progressed she felt more comfortable and spent the rest of the night with me. We had our first kiss in the car, in the parking lot of Toys 'R' Us. This was later followed by followed by sitting for a while in the car, pondering whether I should meet her teenage daughters.
The Proposal: As I was preparing to deploy with the National Guard and be gone for a year. After only dating for 6 months, we were browsing in a Christian Book Store and saw a pair of promise rings with the scripture "True Love Waits". We bought a ring for each other and decided to promise to wait for each other and get married after my deployment. It wasn't a formal proposal, but it was formal in our hearts.
Comments about Oak Crest Cottages/Eureka Springs Treehouses: Oak Crest Cottages really makes this experience beautiful and memorable. The staff is great! They ensure that every detail is taken care of. The Treehouses are amazing! This made our wedding even more memorable and solidified our decision that this was the right choice. And that we will return again, and again, and again!
Cindy and I have known each other for about 35 years. I was married to Cindy's sister for 23 years. Cindy helped me take care of her and our 13 year old son. After she passed away about 23 months ago from cancer, Cindy stayed a big part of our lives. She helped me with my son and other affairs I had to deal with. After we fell in love, I knew I needed and wanted Cindy in my life full time and forever. I asked my son and he said he would be all for it. I took her on a weekend trip in October for her birthday. On the morning of her 50th birthday I gave her the present I had bought her. Then I got down on one knee and pulled the ring out of my pocket and proposed. Thank the world she said yes and I didn't ruin her birthday.
We loved the stay in #9 treehouse. The wedding was perfect for us, short and sweet. Just what we were looking for. The romance package was wonderful. We plan on coming back and staying when the weather is warmer and the town is a buzz.
Thanks so much, Bryant and Cindy Coit
Josh and Stacie knew each other in high school. They lost connection afterwards, but ran into each other many years later at a Chick Fil A and started talking.
Josh took Stacie to St. Louis for a weekend and took her to IKEA. Stacie's eyes were super big the entire time and Josh kept laughing at her.
Josh proposed at Silver Dollar City at Christmas time under all of the beautiful lights.
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses/ Their Wedding: "We can't thank you guys enough for everything you did for us. You made the whole experience wonderful and easy. We upgraded and did the romance package and it was worth every dime. Coming in to see the candles and rose petals was absolutely beautiful. I truly couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you. P.S. The cake was wonderful/Fantastic!"
Marc and Lisa met on Match.com!
Marc proposed when they were hiking. They stopped up to rest on a rock and he stood up, got down on one knee and proposed.
"This was a wonderful experience. Thank you for helping make this special time so wonderful!"
Johnny & I met over the internet. We actually had our first date a year ago today, Feburary 14, 2009. Johnny says that she was and still is the most beautiful woman!
All their dates are full of comedic commentary by Johnny, or in Angie's words "lame" comedic commentary. Now the way Angie tells it, she is the funny one, Johnny is such a competitor.
We had just gotten home from the gym. We were having a conversation about life, love, etc. Johnny got down on one knee and proposed. Johnny says...She fell for it!!! And I am so happy she did.
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:

We went to high school together. Dusty moved away for six years and when he came back we met up at a mutual friends birthday party. On our first actual "date" we drove out to Kamay where we both grew up. Population of about 400 people. It was 2 am after being out at a bar. We tried to turn around on a dirt road on the backside of an irrigation ditch. We were in Dusty's Dodge Charger and we got high centered, and copletely stuck. We had to call his best friend from high school Eric to come pull us out! We were so embarassed!
How Dusty Proposed:
We were laying on the couch and Dusty said "Are you gonna marry me?" and I said "Ummh yeah" and that was about it!
Comments about Euerka Springs Treehouses:
Everything was perfect! The treehouses was gorgeous. Everyone was courteous and very helpful. Lori @ Shear Fashion Salon was great! We loved all of downtown and the food. The best part of all was the romantic carriage ride through historic downtown and learning the history from one of the last original natives. Thank you so much. We will definetly come back soon!
Dustin & Jessica Dean - Wichita Falls, TX
How we met...We started talking through myspace but knew each from school.
Funny dating story...When we first started dating we always made our two best friends play pool in Braden's game room in the dark so we could kiss! We were so mean!
How did he propose....He proposed with rose petals leading up to my ring! I wasn't expecting it at all! And when I found his ring, I set up bouncy balls leading up to his ring! Braden is obsessed with bouncy balls, so I went and bought a whole bunch and mimicked his proposal! He wasn't expecting that!
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses...We've really enjoyed our stay here and we were impressed with the treehouse, it's the perfect size for a couple and very nice! The map and the list of favorite places to eat were extremely helpful. We ate somewhere off the list everyday. The wedding was perfect. It was stress free and the chapel was cute! We were excited that we had someone to take pictures of our big day. Coming back to our decorated room made the experience very special. We loved our wedding cake (it's probably the best cake we've had!) And we both really appreciate you guys making our wedding special! We plan to come back for our 1 year anniversary and maybe stay in a cave or castle. PS We enjoyed our baskets! Nice touch!
See you soon, Braden and Olivia Denney! :)

David and Shawna met through a mutal friens at work. Both tried to avoid the awkward"blind date" first meeting but neither could get out of it and they have been together every day since...truly love at first sight!
David and Shawna have laughter to help them through anything... after nearly cutting off his pinky finger David and Shawna were having a nice dinner when David said something that tickled Shawna and in her giggling fit she hit David's newly stitched together finger! They still giggle about the incident to day!!
David took Shawna to Tulsa, Ok for an event and while at the Center of theUniverse in Tulsa he dropped down on one knee and proposed. David said Shawna was truly his "center" and it seemed to be the perfect place, and it must have been...she said yes!!!
David and Shawna were married in Eureka Springs in February, 2022. David said beautiful just doesn't do this place justice!!
Adam and Jamie met online. They had both recently created accounts and despite the two and a half hour distance between them at the time, they found one another within the first hour. They met in person about a week later and have been together ever since.
Their first actual "date" occurred roughly a week after they started talking. Adam was in Dallas at a convention for work and Jamie had said she would meet him at his house when he flew home. So he left a key to his house to allow her in, thinking to himself that she was either the amazing person I had been talking to, or that her house would be empty when he arrived.
Jamie proposed first, giving Adam a ring earlier in their relationship. He had said yes, not realizing how serious she was about it. Even though he knew she was the only person he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. About six months later, just before Christmas, he presented her with a ring in return. She said yes, making him the happiest person on the face of the Earth.
"We have very much enjoyed our stay, the ceremony, and the entire experience at Hogsveil/The Treehouses. Incredible rooms, atomosphere, and service. We will recommend it highly to anyone looking for an experience such as ours or even to just get away. We will be back!"
How Did You Meet?
Kevin and I met many years ago at my parents church. I was just 19 years old! We were young and stupid and did not marry at that time. Thankfully, we were given a 2nd chance and found each other 15+ years later!
We have been together since and decided to make it official...this time for "us" and that is why we chose an Eureka Springs Get Away!
How did he propose?
Kevin proposed on Christmas Eve. He surprised me by taking me to one of our favorite restaurants. Of course I said YES!
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses:
We had a wonderful experience and would recommend to anyone. Perfect getaway for us. Very nice and romantic. We will come back for sure! Hopefully, we can return for our 1 year Anniversary.
Mark and Angie met online. They had both decided they were okay with being alone, then they started talking and they knew they were meant to be.
All of their dates end up being funny, because they are "so silly."
Mark planned to propose at Devil's Den. The two of them hiked all day and they went to his chosen spot of Yellow Rock Overlook. He couldn't do it, "because there were 4 million sorority girls up there posing!" Mark ended up proposing the next day at their house while they were cleaning.
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses/Their Wedding:

How did you meet? We met on match.com
Funny Dating Story? This would have to be our first date. I was nervous about meeting him since I had previous dates from match.com that hadn't gone so well. so, when he finally asked me if I had plans I said actually yes, I do but would you like to come with me? I brought him on a group date with 10 of my friends from church. The funny part is that my parents and my sisters ended up going to the same restaurant , so on our first date he not only met my closest friends, but met my family as well!
How did he purpose?
When I got home there was a sign that said " follow the roses" There was a trail of roses leading to the bedroom. He had lit candles all over our room, He had his guitar and sang I want to grow old with you from The Wedding Singer. I was balling. When he finished he got down on one knee and asked if I would be his wife!

Toby walked in the door of a local club, Jukebox, he smile and Melissa told her friend he was cute & she was going to make him hers! She watched as he walked closer to the dance floor. Once he was there she grabbed his hand and they danced all night together. She fell in love with that smile that night, even before she knew his name! They were watching a movie at home and Toby paused it, got down in front of Melissa on one knee and said ""I want you to know that I love you and I want to marry you. Will you marry me?" Of course Melissa said "YES!" Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: "We stayed in the treehouses. We picked the Venice theme and we absolutely loved it. The whole entire weekend was great!

Michael and Jameelah met on a blind date four years ago in Springfeild, MO.
Their second date went so well that they decided to meet for ice cream later that same evening for date #3!!
Michael met Jameelah for lunch and he asked in the middle of their taco lunch!! She was so surprised she couldn't finish her tacos!!
Thank you for making our wedding everything we had dreamed of! Even with the winter storm everything was perfect and beautiful!!
Thanks, Elaine and Don, for a very special, moving ceremony. It was absolutely perfect for us! One knows something is divinely blessed when we booked our wedding for the middle of February. Yet, in the dead of winter, after two or three previous blizzard/high snowfall years, this year, the skies were clear and a deep blue color. There was no snow anywhere and we had one of the mildest winters on record. On that Sunday morning, the sun shone brightly and all was in perfect alignment with the world!
A year ago, to the very day of our wedding, we both attended a spiritual retreat in Tampa, FL. Dee left Tulsa in at least a foot of snow and I drove from Ft. Lauderdale, FL in sunshine. Our reasons for being at the retreat had nothing to do with relationship or romance, but things again divinely conspired to bring us together.
As I waited for the conference room doors to open to admit the 500+ people, Dee came and stood up right next to me. I felt her presence before I saw her, and knew I had to turn around and speak. The rest is, as they say, history.
Eureka Springs and the Treehouses are wonderful! For sure, we'll be back!

Frank and Tina met online on a dating site. They have been together six and a half years.
Frank gave Tina the wrong directions to his house the first time she was going to see him. He told her to turn left on a road, when she should have turned right. "It's a good thing she's smart or she'd still be driving around looking for his house, six and a half years later. Ha Ha."
They went gogether to look at rings. As soon as they saw her engagement ring, they both said "that's the one," right after Tina tried it on. It had to be sized. Frank picked it up and asked her to be his wife when he gave it to her.
"We have loved our stay here and don't want to leave! The treehouses are beautiful and very cozy. The minister and phtographer did an amazing job and made our day feel very special. Our rooms were very clean and everyone has been very helpful and kind. We will be back in the future and recommend it to family and friends."
We met at a local restaurant in Little Rock. Patrick was a server and Amberli was a hostess. Patrick immediatly liked Amberli even though she didnt seem interested. In time with lots of flirting we eventually exchanged numbers. our first date was Cinco dDe Mayo and the rest is history.
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses: Everything was perfect the room, the wedding, the view, everything was amazing . Somehow you are right in the middle of the city but you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. Perfect place to runaway and get married!
How did you meet: we met online
Funny story: After dating over a year, Jimmy and I parted ways only to realize it was a mistake. Seven months later we were reunited by chance when I unknowingly included him in an email requesting donations for Race for The Cure.

We have already started recommending you to friends and family and will be happy to provide a wonderful recommendation on Trip Advisor!

How we met...We actually met 10 years ago working together at a church camp. Neither one of use really remember each other from that summer. Ten years later I'm leading youth at my church and Justin is a youth minister across the state and we end up on the same mission team in Nicaragua with Little Ones Ministries. We hit if off on the trip...as friends...he didn't seem interested in anything else and I was way past the chasing boys stage. In the end he got over the 4 hour distance between us, we went out on a date once and pretty much fell for each other. Fast - Hard - Forever!
Funny dating story...We really only went on 1 official date on Oct 18th 2014. Talked on the phone for a couple of weeks and decided to get married by the first of November. Guess you could say it was a really good date. :)
How he proposed...We really didn't have an official proposal..we both just knew we weren't dating just to date. It was about marriage and honoring God with our relationship. After all, He did a lot to bring us together!
Comments about Oak Crest Cottages/Eureka Springs Treehouses/The Wedding,etc...The wedding was beautiful despite the rain. :) It was just about us and our parents and not a lot of ridiculousness that goes with weddings these days (trust me I've been a bridesmaid 7 times). The honeymoon package and treehouse were beautiful and intimate and we'd recommend this place to anyone! Thank you so much for our wonderful wedding and honeymoon! :) Ashley Turney
How we met? We met at work a few years ago.
Funny dating story? The first time we actually met we were working at Academy. Reggie was the new guy. We both turned a corner and smacked into each other and both awkwardly ran away in the directions we both came from. We started talking a few days after that . About a month later I asked Reggie out to our first date! Here we are years later living our happily ever after!
How did he propose? Reggie proposed to me in the shark tank at Jenks Aquarium! Followed by a behind the scenes in to the shark tank!
Comments about Oak Crest Cottages/Eureka Springs Treehouses...We loved our stay here and can't wait to come back every anniversary to see the other rooms!!
How Shane and Philip met:
Philip was a friend of Shane's boss. "We hit it off by our love of fitness," she says. "Our 1st date was a mud run."
One of their funny dating stories:
When his plumbing backed up, Shane helped him unclog toilets that had flooded the basement. It was a very personal moment, but she believes it helped open up their relationship to discuss anything.
Comments about Eureka Springs Treehouses/their wedding:
"Experience as a whole was AMAZING! Everything was perfect and very stress free! Will be back to stay in other castles and caves."
Richard and Mary Windsor were married on 1/2/2020. They met back in 2013. Mary needed a phone line to her house. Ricky knocked on her door and it was an instant rush of feelings. "Somehow like we have known each other for years. But he did his job and left. We did not see each other until 2017. I worked as a preschool teacher with his daughter. Though years had passed we did not remember one another. But still had that spontaneous connection. Not till our third date had passed did we discover that we had already fallen for each other a few years prior. We fell in loveat first sight twice!"
"Ricky and I love to fish. It was early in our relationship, where you still are shy. We were fishing at a state park trying to show the other who is the best fisherman. That's when I lost my footing and fell straight into the deep water hole. He had to pull me out trying not to laugh. I wanted to continue fishing. He teased me about being soaking wet. Then a storm rolled in and rain down poured. We both left drenched."
"Ricky proposed on my birthday in the same location where it all began."
"Thank you so much for this wonderful stay. This was truly a magical experience. Very gorgeous! The thought and hard work that was put to reality is like something out of a fairty tale. We will be back."
We met on-line, but knew as soon as we talked that there was a connection. When we met in person, we knew for sure that we wanted to see what God had in store for us. We have had a lot of laughs while dating each other, and we don't plan to ever stop 'dating'. When he proposed, he took me to his hometown/homeplace, and to one of his favorite spots, and asked me to marry him.
We absolutely loved our Hobbit Cave! Very inviting and cozy. Our Wedding Ceremony was very special, and we loved all of the little details. We hope to come back again for a special trip.
