This was the best Bed and Breakfast experience we’ve had in a long time. Dave and Ellen are exceptional hosts who really know how to make their guests feel at home. If you want to be left alone, they are very respectful of your wishes but they are absolutely delightful people to converse with. And the cookies and breakfast were spectacular. The surrounding area was so incredible- I ran 9 miles in the am and it was one of the most beautiful runs I’ve ever done. Hardly any traffic and right in the backyard of Hamilton’s campus. We brought my daughter for a campus tour and interview here and the Nantucket room was perfect for the 3 of us and had a separate twin bed for my daughter to sleep in. If my daughter is lucky enough to get into Hamilton, we will definitely stay here all the time. Heck, even if she doesn’t go to Hamilton, I still want to return. So happy we stayed here - it was the highlight of our east coast college tour.

My husband and I stayed at The Arbor Inn for a relaxing getaway. The Inn is a beautifully decorated, very welcoming B&B. The innkeeper, Dave and Ellen Varecka, were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good with fresh fruit and coffee available all day with delicious homemade cookies. The rooms are very comfortable and cozy with bathrooms in each room. There is a patio in the back yard for relaxing with a glass of wine or a coffee in the morning and a porch in the front with wicker furniture to sit and relax. We were very refreshed when we left and will definitely return.

My family and I recently stayed 2 nights and had a lovely experience. The Inn Keepers, Ellen and Dave, went out of their way to welcome us and make us feel at home. They offered a delicious hot, home made breakfast plus home made breads, muffins. Each area of the home had it's own coffee maker and home made cookies available 24/7. They offered directions, tips on area restaurants, extra bottled water for the way home.

My family and I stayed at the Arbor Inn and Williams Street Lodging for my son's wedding, it was absolutely wonderful! Ellen and Dave were the perfect hosts, the inn was beautiful, the breakfasts were delicious, the outdoor patio was a great space to relax, fabulous views, we felt right at home. It was the perfect place to get ready for the big event, photograph the guys, and enjoy time together as a family as we celebrated the new couple. Thank you Ellen and Dave, we felt right at home. We can't thank you enough!
