Experience The History of Eden Isle & Red Apple Inn  

Discover the captivating history of Red Apple Inn Lodging & Golf in Heber Springs, AR, where dreams and determination have shaped a timeless haven. Business leader Herbert L. initially envisioned the resort. Thomas and Ruby acquired the 500 acres near Heber Springs in 1961, setting the stage for a premier vacation destination and golf retreat. Despite the challenges posed by the Greers Ferry Dam and subsequent fire, the inn rose like a phoenix, offering cherished memories to guests.

In 1995, Dick and Patti Upton, respected Heber Springs residents, breathed new life into the inn. Their commitment to reviving the Thomases’ dream led to extensive renovations, rekindling the inn’s allure. Herbert Thomas’ legacy, marked by his dedication to Eden Isle’s harmonious development, lives on despite his passing in 1982. Through the Uptons’ efforts, the Red Apple Inn continues to honor his vision, weaving a narrative of persistence, resilience, and an enduring commitment to crafting an oasis of luxury.
