We had such a great stay here for our 10th anniversary weekend! We were so relaxed and was so beautiful! The inn keepers went above and beyond to make our stay a great one, we even were iced in and they were able to accommodate us for dinner. We will be back and we are already planning our next visit!

Dear So Relaxing, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We also want to thank you for letting us serve you dinner. The weather was so bad and Ken and I were so worried. It also gave us a little more time to spend with you and get to know you. Now you are family. Again, congratulations on your... More

I chose Arkens B&B to celebrate my sixth anniversary. I initially wasn't going to select this place based on the pictures on their website but I am glad I did. Arkens B&B is definitely more beautiful than the pictures you see on their site. Some of the pluses that I usually never see anywhere else are pool table, board games,... More

Loved this place- we just got back from a much needed getaway-- and Mr. Ken and Ms. Arlis- have a beautiful b&b and it's like you are in Italy. The food is to die for. We absolutely loved it and we are going again in summer and fall with family and friends. We were swept away by the ambience and... More

We booked this last minute as an anniversary weekend and loved the property. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The owners are very sweet and accommodating. We had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries on arrival and enjoyed a picnic lunch on Saturday all organized by the B&B. There is a cute town square with some good restaurants but we liked...

I'm leary of B&B's ...I'm not a fan of rickety old furniture, doilies, gingham, shared bathrooms are just not for me. Which is why Arkens is exactly what I was looking for and more! Ken and Arlis thought of everything: extremely well-equipped private suites, comfortable common area, exquisite breakfast, pool table, game room and a multi-tiered backyard with pool, jacuzzi,...

If you are making a list of B&B's to visit, be sure to place Arkens Bed&breakfast in Granbury,Tx, at the top of the list. A stay at Arkens is an absolute delight. Ken and Arlis are the consummate hosts. The guest rooms are elegant, comfortable and well appointed, and the Sword room is trip back to Medieval Times. The house... More

We could not have enjoyed our stay more! Arlis & Ken were such gracious hosts. They did everything possible to help make our stay comfortable. They provided everything that we needed. They have a beautiful and extremely comfortable home. We would highly recommend the Arkens Bed & Breakfast. We look forward to the next opportunity to go to Granbury so... More

My husband and I have been to Arkens a few times and we fell in love with it instantly! Ken and Arlis have a gift of good-hearted hospitality and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. It is a beautiful home on the lake with a pool, hammock, hot tub, grill, pool table, game room and so much more.... More

We celebrated our 20th anniversary at Arkens Bed and Breakfast, and we couldn't have chosen a better place. The home is absolutely gorgeous, and the view of the pool and Granbury Lake is beautiful. Ken and Arlis are very warm and friendly people, and they are terrific hosts. They have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable and... More

One year ago this weekend, I had the most beautiful wedding at Arkens!!! Ken performed the ceremony and Arliss did everything else, including music and photography! The property was perfect and Ken and Arliss are great hosts. If I had to do it all over again, there isn't a single thing I would change about my wedding day!
