Colony Dining & Gatherings

At 515 Spring Street, dinner is served in The Writers' Colony great room Monday to Friday at 6 p.m., and what a dinner it is! Our Kitchen Magician Jana Jones learned to cook in the Czech Republic, under the tutelage of her grandmother, and her European-style gourmet meals are a big reason alums return to the Colony year after year. The great room is also where we hold workshops and host community events, from wine tastings to our monthly Poetluck, a potluck dinner followed by residents and area writers sharing their work with us.

KitchenAid Culinary suite

The Culinary suite was designed and renovated through a collaborative effort by KitchenAid and Renovation Style magazine. It's the perfect place for cookbook and culinary writers and bloggers to test their recipes, but it's also a comfortable, roomy suite with access to a deck and a front porch to sit and watch the world of Eureka Springs go by.

Langston Hughes suite

The Langston Hughes suite is tucked away downstairs in the main house. It has a private entrance and the writing room, with huge windows on two sides, looks out at Harmon Park across the street. It has a tub with hand-held shower and its own little kitchenette. Langston Hughes was formerly named Peach Blossom before the refurbishment/refresh sponsored by Charles Templeton. Learn more about the transformation here.

Maya Angelou suite

The Maya Angelou suite is upstairs in the main house. It has a queen-sized bed, stand-up shower and a view of the wooded hill across the street from the windows overlooking the writing table. The Spring Garden suite was beautifully transformed into the Maya Angelou suite in 2019. Learn more about its blossoming here
