We were suppose to stay in downtown Murphys, but a nice lady we met at Murphys suggested this B&B instead. She guaranteed me and my husband that this was a better choice. We've never been to Arnold so we were not sure what to expect. What a beauty!! We were greeted by a very gracious and friendly lady who happens to be the owner. Her name is Wendi. As soon as we checked-in and brought our bags to the room we did a bit of walking to the nearby shops. We came back not too long after to relax and unwind to a delightful plate of cheeses and wine. Wendi made dinner reservation for us at the nearby golf lodge which is supposedly open to the public on fridays and saturdays for dinner. It was a nice treat to be able to dine in this private golf resort. We came home after a fun day of exploring Angels Camp, Murphys and Arnold and slept extremely well in our very comfortable bed. We told Wendi that we will have our breakfast at 8:30. We overslept! That's how comfortable we were. Another surprise awaits us at the dining table for breakfast. Bruce is the Chef and Wendi's wonderful husband. The food he prepared looked like something out of a food magazine. It was so well presented. I did not want to touch it. Again, they didn't fail us. It was yummy and delicious. This was a memorable experience and I've already mentioned this to family and friends. We will DEFINITELY be back!! Bruce & Wendi, thank you for your hospitality and welcoming us to your beautiful home. Everything was excellent!
