"We had an amazing experience at the 1890 Williams House. Lynda was a wonderful hostess, providing fresh-baked cookies, great ideas for afternoon activities and wonderful breakfasts. I would recommend this B&B without hesitation to anyone seeking a warm & inviting environment."

This article has some great info about Hot Springs and mentions the Williams House as being the first Bed & Breakfast in Arkansas in 1981. Before that the Williams House was owned by  Dr. Williams and Richard Wooten, the son in law of Dr. Williams. We have a great book in each of our rooms that tells the history of our house for our guests to explore.

Reflections from Guests…..

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

We have books for our guests to write reviews/comments on their stay and today the one left by a couple in our Williams Suite was especially touching and I thought worth sharing with everyone.

January 10-12, 2014……..

“Lynda……Well I thought this should be just a short note to express our appreciation for you and this house and the amazing staff but, after reading through this book, I thought, does she realize the magnitude of the impact that she has on the guests she receives?  YOU have held the hands & hearts of patrons celebrating marriage by giving them the wedding that they wanted. Dried the tears of a couple trying to manage after the death of a their child.  You provided peace for a couple studying for the Bar Exam, who knew that this was such a magical place run by the most brilliant woman of us all that adorn these pages.  Life is happy, horrible, loving, giving & taking…. You provide what is needed where ever anyone is in the ups and downs of life.  What an amazing life & huge responsibility you take on with each reservation.  I thought that I was strong!  Through this house, your example of this book….I realize I was married here & I came back to celebrate that marriage here, that’s a simple view I had when returning here. But, as I sit & listen to my husband sleep, I realize my Life started here….Thank you isn’t the most fitting word, however appreciation is all that is in my heart.  So again I thank you.  You were the one of three people that I invited to my wedding, two years later, I can understand fully the impact of that decision….Always in my heart…see you next year…..Truly  Casey & Cody……

Please find time to come stay with us here at the 1890 Williams House….It’s definitely a very special place to share with everyone!  I thoroughly  enjoy meeting guests from all over! ……..Lynda D. Burpo, Owner
