After hiking 16 km on the Jesus Trail my wife and I arrived hot, thirsty, and tired. The reception was very hospitable, the accommodations were good, and the food was excellent. Would definitely stay again.

Spent overnight with dinner and bed and breakfast. After a dawn hike came back for a dip in the pool. One of best breakfasts - with homemade jams, fruit shakes and much more. Dinner delicious and unpretentious. Hosts friendly and helpful. Lovely calm atmosphere. Rooms we stayed in in basement not luxurious, but clean and perfect for our needs.

Spent a very nice 2 nights here. It also has a restaurant attached but we didn't eat there. Lovely pool, rooms comfortable although the kitchen could have been a bit better equipped. Having said that, we didn't really use it much and had we have needed anything I'm sure the very obliging Shavit's would have supplied it.

Arbel is a very sweet guest house with a really lovely staff! Breakfast is divine-soooooo much food that is fresh and delicious. The pool is clean and warm. The grounds are tidy and the rooms are nice. Only complaint is that the beds weren't terrific & could use an upgrade. Otherwise, a wonderful stay with our kids-we would definitely go... More

We stayed at Arbel for 3 nights in the Two bedroom Apartment. Not the height of luxury but extremely comfortable beds, ample facilities and fantastic views and incredible cooking. Our hosts were very welcoming and made us feel very much at home. Delicious breakfasts, and exceptional dinner if you wish. Make sure you ask Israel to show you his Chocolate... More

We loved staying at the Arbel Guest House Shavit Family! It was a beautiful property with peaceful surroundings. The Shavit family were amazing hosts and the breakfast was outstanding! Our apartment (#2) was spacious for our family of four and we were sad when our short stay was over. Don't forget to walk through the orchard near the parking lot.... More

We stayed at the Arbel guest house while visiting the galilee. The rooms were large and inviting. The area is very peaceful and relaxing. The Shavit family were very friendly and anxious to make sure that their guests were comfortable and enjoying their visit. The breakfast was amazing and very tasty. We ate dinner there one night and the food... More

My adult daughter and I spent two days at the Arbel Guest House two weeks ago. We rented the two bedroom apartment, which was quite comfortable. The guest house is quite an oasis--swimming pool, arbors filled with flowers, and hosts that attend to your needs. The breakfasts were wonderful, among the best in our three week trip. The location is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Caution: there are similar guest house names in our location. Our guest house name is "Arbel Guest House Shavit Family." A unique farm guest house which is an attraction that no tourist can afford to miss: the atmosphere, the rooms and above all - the gourmet restaurant. This is one of the best places to enjoy a peaceful rest, gaining your energies for the next day of touring and enjoying the most wonderful dinner you have ever experienced. People say that the shavit guest house is a small model of the Garden of Eden: the trees, the flowers, the greenery, the swimming pool, the view, the air and the atmosphere. Others can never forget the gastronomic experience. The outstanding meat dishes served for dinner, the food preparation by "Chef ISRAEL" in front of the diners, the exquisite breakfast, and finally the secret chocolate cellar. Chef ISRAEL makes his own chocolate in the unique wine cellar aside from the wine variety, the olive oil products and the local honey. Our guest house is close to many historical sites in the area: - Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Druze. Arbel is within easy reach of all major centers in central and northern Israel (Golan Heights-Baines, Acre, Nazareth, Tabor, Capernaum, Tabha, Haifa, Safed, Caesarea, Bait- She' an) only one hour from us. We have apartments each with private bathroom and fitted kitchenette. Tea and coffee are freely available.* Self-catering * Breakfast and dinner are also available on request. ... more   less
