I call myself a well-seasoned B&B fan. The Arvgarden was a bit different from what I've been accustomed to. First and most important, the room was spotless. It's a basic no frills room with a very comfortable bed. Lots of brightness and windows to open to allow the immaculately clean air to heal your lungs. I really cannot see a need to ever have air conditioning here. The nights go down to 60s even if these days were hot. But it's there if you need it. The breakfasts were good and ample. A nice place. Hilma was sincere and gracious. Keith has been the victim of a few arrows by reviewers here. And yes, he didn't ask much if anything about us or our lives. I found that odd as well. By after a few days I chalked it up to Keith being Keith - that's just his character, his personality. It's not intentional and he loves to tell his stories - so what? He was very nice otherwise. The sheep were interesting and you cannot hear them whatsoever from your room. OK, a few things to improve on (because no B&B is perfect..). I would have enjoyed locks on the doors - not because I don't trust people, it's just a necessity. Because of the beautiful floors and the sparseness of the rooms, things can get echo-y or loud if you have loud guests, This wasn't much of an issue, but the walls do sound a bit thin. Lastly, I love a later breakfast (9:30 am) after my morning run, yet we were kindly asked to have breakfasts at 8 am. Not huge, but I would have a liked a little flexibility.
Otherwise, a clean place to stay in God's country. Step out the door and run country roads for miles. A runner's paradise.
