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…

Starry Night Cottage is available for nightly or weekly rentals and can sleep up to five. It has two upstairs bedrooms and a full kitchen.

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…

And I just couldn’t resist a little Starry Starry Night Musical accompaniment:
