We stayed 3 nights at this lovely BB. Extremely clean, decorated in sparse Swedish fashion, comfortable beds, charming sitting area. The breakfast was a definite highlight- healthy and with herbs/vegetables/and fruits from their own garden. Hilma is a great cook and prepared dishes for several challenging dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy and meat free), yet the food was so good you... More

Keith and Hilma are fantastic hosts. From a personal postcard sent to us before we arrived, through hugs and handshakes upon leaving, we felt like part of the family. It didn't hurt that Neil and Keith are both retired school teachers and Hilma and I are librarians. Unlike Joan S., I didn't have a problem with unlocked doors--even the house's... More

My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights a year ago and agree with others that the hosts are hospitable, the place is clean, the food delicious and the location beautiful. Unfortunately, the walls are paper thin and the beds are placed on the same adjoining walls. The first night we could hear the people's actual conversation in the... More

My husband and I and our friends stayed here for two nights and couldn't have been more pleased. Keith and Hilma were so friendly and gracious and shared their love of Sweden and Swedish foods. Breakfasts were outstanding. Omelets, blueberry muffins, juice, fruit, coffee and Swedish pancakes and sausage and fruit and juice and coffee and a fantastic cardamom coffee... More

A lovely home out in the country near Wellsboro, PA, surrounded by sheep and fields. The four guest rooms are in a separate wing--they're clean and simply but beautifully furnished. Keith and Hilma are wonderful hosts--their dinner recommendation in downtown Wellsboro was terrific. I took a walk around their property in the AM before breakfast, and sat on a bench... More

I booked our overnight here based on reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We were two couples on our way to Niagara Falls and needed an halfway point. As everyone else has said, the rooms are exceptionally clean; the view is charmingly bucolic. Keith and Hilma are friendly, helpful and informative. Our breakfast was a scrumptious Swedish Omelet...

Arvgarden exceeded our hopes for a lovely two nights stay shared with a flock of New Zealand Corriedale sheep and unwinding to sunsets at days end. Situated on 118 acres of a rolling farmland fields and woods it is the perfect retreat after a busy day of touristing. Because it is 12 years old and designed in Swedish style specifically... More

I booked a room at Arvgarden for just one night, but I wish it could have been longer. My best friend and I stayed at this lovely B&B right outside of the town of Wellsboro. We were in the area for the Laurel Festival and some hiking at the PA Grand Canyon (Leonard Harrison State Park). The home itself is... More

I loved my time at Arvgarden. So much stillness and tranquility. I recommend walking along the grassy trails in the fields behind the house. They must have 100 acres or so, if not more. The road is a quiet country lane, so there is no sound of cars whatsoever. We were there for just one night and found it to... More

This was our third visit here. Every time it is very clean and neat. The rooms are very roomy and very neat and clean. Bathrooms too! Keith and Hilma are always friendly and welcoming. It's like visiting old friends. The breakfasts are always great! Our three year old loved visiting and talking to the sheep. We'll be back again and... More
