This holiday season is a good time to take a short vacation to the Ozarks and Spring River Lodge in Hardy, AR is waiting to make your stay a wonderful memory-making vacation.  Bundle up your loved ones and strike out on a mini-vacation before school starts back and we all get back to life of work and all the things we have to do.  Your stay in the Ozarks amid so many shopping and other vacation things to do in this area will fill your family’s heart with wonderful holiday memories!

If you are looking for a place that is laid back and relaxing, this is it! Not much has changed in Historic Hardy from the days when the Model-T parked in front of the café!  Hardy was officially founded in 1883, when the completion of the railroad running through North Arkansas brought the opportunity for growth of the area.  The lifestyle of Hardy has been about the same for the last fifty  years.  That’s when the craft and antique shops began to open in the historic buildings on Main Street.  No one is in a hurry here.  Take a deep breath of the Ozark air and relax!

Before you spot their 2014 Award of Excellent hanging on the wall, you almost just know it by the absolutely spotless, sparkling clean lobby/office and adjoining breakfast area. Wow!  Having traveled a lot, I was most impressed with everything I saw as we visited with Sunni Cooper, long time General Manager.  Sunni represents, quite well, Spring River Lodge’s owner.  You just know she is going to take good care of you.
