Queen Anne Mansion in Eureka Springs Becomes a Private Residence Club

When you buy a vacation home, you want it to be an escape, right? Maintenance and upkeep can be a wet blanket on second home ownership, though. So why not aim for something with excellent management that’s more like staying at a five-star hotel than a vacation home?

Well, those who buy into the Queen Anne Mansion in Eureka Springs, Ark., will get the red carpet treatment. The Queen Anne Mansion has all of the great things vacation homes have to offer without all of the stress.

We’ve talked about this unique historic property before. It’s an amazing house that was lovingly restored in a unique and beautiful area. And now you can have a vacation home nestled in the Ozarks without the worry.

What do you get with a Private Residence Club fractional property? There are seven suites inside the Queen Anne Mansion, and all of them offer all of the graciousness you’d expect from a property built in 1891 with the modern amenities available in high-end hotels — spa services, concierge, maid services, and turndown.

The Queen Anne Mansion has a corner on the fractional market in Eureka Springs, too.

“It is my experience that the first fractional in a market generally does very well because of the benefits to buyers and the lack of competition,” said David Disick with The Fractional Consultant. “We anticipate the Mansion sales to have strong momentum.”

But how will the Mansion’s club work? Here are the details:

In the Mansion’s model, the first 12 Patron Owners of The Queen Anne Mansion Preservation Trust will benefit from privileged launch pricing of $150,000 per interest. A threshold to closing of 24 deposits has been established, at which point each of the owners will begin to have access to the property.

Ownership will afford each purchaser the right to reserve a minimum of 28 nights of annual usage in seven-night blocks. Owners may reserve a single suite, multiple suites or the entire estate, with each suite counting as one night of usage. Additional nights beyond the 28 reserved nights may be enjoyed on a space-available basis to owners and their accompanied guests via the Club reservation system.

With the name “Private Residence Club” attached to the Queen Anne Mansion’s moniker, do you think this great fractional property will become more attractive to buyers?
