A Hot Springs AR Bed & Breakfast Retreat
where you can do absolutely nothing!
CoVid19: A Cautious Time
Our Mountain Thyme Family is always welcome.
New Guests may book available rooms.
That is to say:
- We are generally targeting a maximum of 50% occupancy.
- If we have your name in our reservation system as having stayed with us in these last 22 years, you are welcome to call or send an email to make your reservation.
- If you are new to Mountain Thyme, we will be accepting reservations a maximum of 7 days in advance of the stay. If you would like to sign up earlier, give us a call and
we will put you on a waiting list and then call you back at the 7 day point to confirm the booking, (or offer our appologies if the maximum rooms have been booked by our regulars by then).
- In support of these policies, the online reservation system will remain out of service for the time being, although you may still check room/date availability there.
2 Night Minimums
We are keeping each room vacant for 24 hours before and after each guest stay. This will give us plenty of time to clean the room and "let it air out". We are therefore instituting a 2 night minimum stay for all rooms and days until further notice.
A Few Policy Changes.
Masks and Safe Distancing
Arkansas now requires masks in all public spaces where a 6 foot personal space cannot be maintained. This generally applies to all indoor spaces. Due to our limited occupancy at any one time, masks will usually not be required here. However, this assumes that everyone respects the 6 foot personal space of other guests. Taking turns accessing amenities in the Guest Pantry is a good example.
We will not seat more than one room at each table for breakfasts. (If you come with close friends or family, and request to be seated together, we will oblige.) If we need more than 4 tables for breakfast, we will extend the breakfast time an extra half hour so that we will serve from 8:00 until 9:30. In this way, we can accomodate up to 4 tables at an "early seating", clean, and then serve additional guests at a second seating. The porch tables will also be available as desired.
We will NOT be "straightening rooms" during your stay. Normally we try to fluff pillows and fold down the bed, empty waste baskets and replace towels as needed. If you need fresh towels or your waste basket emptied, please just let us know.
There will be additional periodic disinfectant cleaning of commonly touched surfaces in the common areas.
We look forward to seeing our Mountain Thyme Family again!
When people ask us what there is to do here
, we tell them,
Nothing you need to worry about. There is no schedule to keep.
Just relax a while. We will take care of the rest. It's our specialty!
"Words can't describe the enjoyment & beauty of your Mountain Thyme. This is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in.
And that's been quiet a few."
A very special gift for a very special someone
