Our first tour was so successful it was featured in the Taste of the South Magazine. They said: “Take a quaint Victorian Town nestled in the Ozark Mountains of northwestern Arkansas. Add an association of bed-and-breakfast owners who love to decorate their inns for the Christmas season. Mix in a good measure of curiosity from out-of-town guests and local people alike. And garnish with an array of holiday treats and recipes to share.”
