We spent 3 nights here for a relaxing getaway. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was hearty and the coffee was excellent. The Concorde Room was very spacious and well appointed and we enjoyed this room better than our 3rd night in the Riesling. The Riesling wasn't as inviting and the new house is very warm. Overall a...

I stayed at the inn the end October. It is a beautiful place, very clean and close to the village. We occupied 2 rooms in the back building down stairs the Shiraz and Pinot. Both rooms were very clean... the girls working there explained that the rooms and were very helpful. My children enjoyed the fact that they could go... More

We stayed here for one night - Saturday Nov 14 - and I could forgive one or even two "not so good items" but ELEVEN is not acceptable and completely wiped out the first impressions of a good-sized room with a lovely wood floor and pretty rugs. 1. - the bed sagged into the middle and 2. had cheap nylon/polyester...

Our stay was very nice. The Room was clean ,comfortable and roomy. A gas fireplace was controlled by a switch near the bed.It took the chill out of the room and added a soft light all around.There was a whirlpool tub in the bath....very relaxing. Breakfast was served to order,with fresh fruit,cereal,hot coffee, juice ect. Enjoyed our stay.

There isnt any road noises. I would recommend this place to anyone!!!!! The town is a great place to go and play but... More

I selected leisure above, but our trip was a combination of both leisure and business. We stayed in the Bella Rose, the largest suite located on the back house of the inn. When we walked in we were blown away by home big the place was and how well done the kitchen and living room were. There was a day... More

My wife and I stayed in the Concord Suite (on the first floor of the main front house) for one evening, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place in the town. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated, featured an additional living / sitting space, and the bathroom was clean and up to date while retaining its... More

My wife and I spent three days in "Skinnyatlas." What a find, and Arbor House capped it off. Very comfortable room and terrific breakfast. One caveat. Central AC in the house is a converted forced air heating unit, so cool air is pumped from the floor (wrong direction). The bedrooms on the second floor could use a bit of a... More

Very clean and comfy rooms, the owner and his sister are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and the inn is within walking distance to the quaint village. We hadn't done a B&B before but I would stay here again!

We stayed at the Arbor House for 2 nights to visit family in the area. The location is perfect to walk to all the amenities of the downtown area. We didn't need our car to get anywhere. The B&B is clean, quiet and reasonably priced. Our breakfast was simple and ample with lots of juice and coffee, which we really... More
