I got downright giddy when I found Starry Night Cottage in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Owner Kaye Driscoll Gallahar gave me permission to show you around this adorable 1880’s home which is now used as a vacation rental…

Kaye and her husband searched for over two years before finding this little gem just a short stroll away from the historic downtown area of Eureka Springs.

The cottage exterior just bursts with curb appeal, but have a look at how the Gallahar’s have decorated the inside…

Every corner is filled with something delightful to look at…

Upstairs, there are two sloped-ceiling bedrooms tucked under the eaves….

One bedroom even has a door that opens onto a private balcony:

At first I thought the wall with the ivy was a man-made stone wall, but it turns out it is actually a natural cliff face – the city of Eureka Springs is located in a steep mountainous area of Arkansas and is literally built into these unique grey cliffs.

No matter the season, Starry Night Cottage is a twinkling sight…
