Foxglove Bed & Breakfast

Foxglove Bed & Breakfast
229 Beech
Helena, Arkansas 72342
(870) 338-9391
(800) 863-1926

Stunning antiques, parqueted floors, stained glass, and handmade oriental rugs are complimented by private luxury baths and whirlpool tubs. And there is more -- with six original fireplaces, quartersawn oak woodwork and a highly unusual double seated staircase.

Built in 1900 by Elmer West, the existing structure remained basically unchanged until 1994 when conversion into a Bed & Breakfast began. With the addition of 10 bathrooms, changes are still quite subtle, and extreme care was taken to match interior and exterior trim. At the turn of the century Helena was a small, prosperous, river town; today many antebellum homes remain, some of which can be toured daily.
