Queen Anne Mansion Announces Private Residence Club
Gracious, Turn-of-the-Century Living Is Recaptured At the Historic, 12,000-Square-Foot Residence
EUREKA SPRINGS, Ark. – Owners Steve and Lata Lovell – who have lovingly and meticulously restored the historic, 12,000-square-foot Queen Anne Mansion – today announced the creation of the Queen Anne Mansion Preservation Trust Inc., a Private Residence Club. This coincides with a boom in tourism and development in Northwest Arkansas following the opening of the $1 billion Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in nearby Bentonville.
Established to ensure the long-term viability of the magnificent home and its valuable contents while making it available to those who appreciate this unique lifestyle proposition, the non-profit Private Residence Club will offer positions in the two-acre gated estate. The estate includes the Mansion, with its seven private suites – each with a luxurious bathroom – spectacular entry hall with massive central staircase, and exquisitely appointed common parlor rooms. It further includes the extensive antique collection; private, landscaped grounds with stunning Italian marble fountains and extensive stonework; gazebo; and the Kelley House, the adjacent Victorian cottage where the private spa and in-house management will be located.
Appealing to those with a passion for turn-of-the-century architecture and antiques, the amenity-rich experience of owning at the 1891 Mansion recaptures the gentility, graciousness and civility that are so often missing from daily life in the 21st century. The Lovells also have made a number of needed improvements to accommodate the comforts and functionality that today’s most sophisticated travelers expect. Each of the seven suites includes a refrigerator with available provisioning, accompanied by daily maid service, turndown service and daily newspaper. Available a la carte services include chef services, spa services, airport transfers, laundry and dry cleaning, and daily change of linens. All owner services and amenities are overseen by the concierge and in-residence management team.
A hot breakfast is served daily, with cocktails served every Friday evening, along with a Sunday dinner. An experienced chef and team are on-call to prepare any kind of meal from an intimate en-suite dinner for two to a party in the dining room for up to 14 to a catered event on the grounds for up to 200. The Mansion’s spectacular Courtyard Bar is ideal for sharing before-dinner drinks and conversation, or a cold beer while watching the game. The garden level features an intimate media room, while the game room offers diversions such as backgammon and chess.
Located at the entrance to historic downtown Eureka Springs, The Queen Anne Mansion is convenient to dining, shops and nightlife, as well as the surrounding lakes, rivers and state parks. A jewel of the Ozarks region of Northwest Arkansas, Eureka Springs is home to more than 400 artists and is a magnet for performing and fine arts. Eureka Springs boasts one of “America’s Greatest Main Streets” according to Travel & Leisure, while neighboring Bentonville is the only U.S. destination mentioned in Travel & Leisure’s “12 Hottest Travel Destinations for 2012.”
