Meet Your Hosts at Mount Victoria Bed & Breakfast Inn Eureka Springs, Arkansas
Chris and Lisa shared the same circle of friends while growing up in Little Rock, Arkansas and went their separate ways to attend college ~ Lisa left for Knoxville, Tennessee and Chris moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas. A few years passed and in July, 2006, their paths crossed again; their friendship evolved into something more and a romance began!
After college, Chris owned his storage business in Little Rock while Lisa had built an award-winning corporate sales career. Once they re-connected and began dating they soon realized that they wanted to combine their talents and dreams ~ Lisa's friends always encouraged her to open a decorating or catering business, while Chris had always been comfortable in property management.
On December 15, 2006 they arrived at beautiful, historic Mount Victoria in Eureka Springs. Lisa's outgoing personality and Chris' great business sense and down to earth personality are a winning combination guests are sure to enjoy.
Chris' love of cooking has created phenomenal gourmet breakfasts which have resulted in Mount Victoria being featured in the December, 2008 issue of "Southern Living" magazine as the writers choice for not only Where To Stay but also Where To Eat in Eureka Springs!
The Award-Winning Mount Victoria is the only bed and breakfast in Eureka Springs to receive this double honor. He also enjoys kayaking, Gardening, watching the Arkansas Razorbacks and, of course, spending time with Lisa.
Lisa loves to decorate, cook, watch movies (some of her favorites are "Wonder Boys" & "Barefoot In The Park"), collect the "treasures" she finds at antique shops and try to complete the set of "Nancy Drew" books she had as a child.
Lisa is a proud Auntie to two-year old Nina and has two brothers, Sean and Ryan, who reside in Ohio. Sean is a partner in "Keep Right Landscaping" and Ryan is pursuing his nursing degree. Lisa's Dad and Stepmother reside in North Carolina amongst the beautiful Smoky Mountains where Lisa, Chris and Molly visit each Winter! Chris' family resides in Little Rock and he has a sister, Lauren, who is currently pursuing her love of collecting treasures and transforming them into Art.
Chris & Lisa love Eureka Springs and being "locals." Lisa is full of the best dining and shopping suggestions and Chris will give you the directions to get to the local "best kept secrets!"
