This stylish yet friendly place was an unexpected surprise. Lots of thoughtful details, from the furniture to the restaurant placemats. And the restaurant meals were delicious and flavorful using local farms. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back again!

The Arnold House and their staff out did themselves for my daughter's wedding. Megan and Terry helped us every step of the way to make this day the "best day ever". The food was amazing. The whole day was perfect and we stayed at the Lake House....amazing!!!! The beds were so comfy and the view spectacular. We couldn't have had... More

I was super impressed by The Arnold; everything from the spirit of the staff to the quality of the food to the composed but non-fussy decor. The grounds and barn in the back feel very authentic. I loved the entire environment -- it felt light-years away from the city. Just Perfect.

Our daughter married her best friend at the Arnold House a couple of weeks ago. The Arnold House owners & staff went above & beyond making this weekend AMZING! Alicia & Mason shared their vision with Megan and she made it happen! The super friendly staff, the beautiful barn, the Bed & Breakfast, the awesome grounds, the bonfires & s'mores,... More

Room very small, bath room for midgets, shower did not work, walls thin and you hear next room person coughing, etc..Breakfast poor obviously made the night before. No TV, no fridge. We paid for two nights stay but left after one night stay and the person in reception did not even realise we were leaving one day earlier!

What a fun weekend my friends and family had at the Arnold House celebrating my wedding! The staff could't have been more helpful, attentive, and fun. Both the food in the Tavern and at our wedding event was absolutely delicious and beautifully served. I love the rustic, mid-century modern decor, the simple, clean rooms, and the attention to detail of... More

Loved the Arnold House...very country and rustic, but elegant at the same time. Beds are super comfortable. Cookies...wow! Nice restaurant and healthy bar seen at the Tavern. Loved the food....couldn't stop eating the clams...

We booked a trip to this area last minute, and this was the only accommodation we could find. The rooms are old, small, you hear all the noise on the street below because the glass windows are thin and outdated. Would not stay here again.

We stayed here for the weekend while picking my son up from camp. This place was the former Lanza House. It looks like an old Road House right of the road set on a beautiful piece of property. Bedrooms are small and minimally decorated. Floors are covered in cork and beds are on platforms. Linens and towels are of good... More

We had a family gathering at The Arnold. I hadn't been there before. It is unassuming at first glance but then you find the staff, the home-baked cookies, the amenities and the bed (oh the bed!) to be totally and quietly high-end. The setting is peaceful, relaxing and lovely. The nearby town is delightful. It's a great respite from the... More
