Best Getaway With the Girls


While its exterior still looks like a historic mill, the Inn at the Mill’s interior features modern suites.

Inn at the Mill

Springdale, Arkansas

Call up the girls, and plan a winter retreat to Inn at the Mill (3906 Johnson Mill Blvd., Springdale, Arkansas). For a true girls-only getaway, book the Historic Mill Suites. These two multi-level suites are housed in the historic mill wing, which lends a certain amount of vintage charm to these otherwise modern suites. The lower level features a cozy living area with a convertible couch, and upstairs you’ll find a queen-size bed, marble bath and Jacuzzi. Continue the pampering with a free continental breakfast before making dinner reservations at James at the Mill Restaurant. Besides boasting an award-wining wine list and cuisine that truly shows off the bounty of the Ozarks, this two-level restaurant has a view that’s hard to beat thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows that offer a glimpse of the woods outside.

Get in Touch With Your Artsy Side

No trip to this part of the state would be complete without a visit to the nearby Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art (crystalbridges.org). Spend an afternoon wandering through the exhibits, zip up your coat for a visual roller coaster ride in the colorful Sky Space art installation, and then keep warm with a round of hot coffee or hot cocoa while enjoying a brisk winter walk around the museum grounds.
