B&L Inn Experiences

Experiences at The Inn

The Beard and Lady Inn is more than a hotel. This 19th century bed and breakfast is a historic pillar in a mountain town rampaged by fire, flood, and war. We believe that immersive experiences are the best way to learn about history, nature, and ourselves. 

Ride the A&M Railroad

Once a crucial part of regional transport and economy, the 1882-built A&M railroad is a cornerstone of Arkansas history. Today, travelers can ride this winding railway through the mist of the Ozark Mountains for unforgettable views. Featured in multiple Hollywood films, this history train flies right past our beloved inn.

Natural State Wet-plates: Tintype Photography

Wet plate collodion photography is an early photography process that saw wide use from the 1850’s to the early 1900’s during the victorian era. It made photography both portable and easily marketed as the photographs are developed on site within minutes of being captured in-camera. We like to think of it as the original polaroid. Due to the image being directly exposed on tin/glass the photograph can last hundreds of years making it the ideal heirloom to pass down generation to generation. Natural State Wet-Plates sets up regularly at the Beard and Lady Inn, you can inquire on their website about booking a session!

Vintage Postcards

The Beard and Lady Inn is reviving the age-old practice of letter writing. Pick up a vintage postcard at the front desk, and pop in the old post office next door to send it to your beau. Guests are encouraged to write themselves a postcard and ship it before departing, so that they can receive a creative reminder of their stay upon arriving home.
