Great place to stay in a beautifully restored room which had all the amenities anyone could ever need. Candy is a great cook and made us a wonderful breakfast. Special treats were provided for guests and we felt very welcome there.

Cindy and Pete are so friendly and welcoming. Cindy spent time just hanging out and chatting before breakfast that we all started to feel like family. It was a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and we were indeed well fed. This is a spectacular home, situated on what appears to be an acre property, with charming decor that reflects... More

It was late when we were let free and Peter had been waiting for us. He picked us up at the warf and led us to our rooms making sure that we were all... More

The room was clean and the bathroom was quite nice as well. There is a mini-frig available for guests to use. It is located in... More

We had a great stay at the Arbor View Inn. Our hosts gave us great recommendations for area beaches, activities, and restaurants. Our room was comfortable for our family of 4 and the kids enjoyed playing in the extensive yard. Breakfast was delicious and we loved how they incorporate area produce.

My wife and I were invited to a wedding that was going to take place at the Arbor View Inn. As it turned out, we were the first to book the room and ultimately eased the decision making for the bride and groom. Other far away places such as Iceland and other Canadian Cities were in the mix, but fortunately,... More

I’d like to preface the following by saying that my wife and I have never written a negative review about any of our stays at a bed and breakfast. When things don’t go as planned we try and make the best of it and move on. However, when numerous things add up, as they did during our 2 night stay... More

Arborview, Owner at Arbor View Inn, responded to this review

We initially intended for this review to stand on it's own merit, appealing to the logic that one bad review amongst many excellent reviews would be regarded as an aberration. We then considered that a lack of response may inadvertnatly indicate that we do not contest the statement of this individual. Lastly, we weighed the benefit of responding to alleged... More
