Arvgarden Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 9 Wellsboro B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 24, 2009

If you are looking for a welcoming and peaceful retreat from a world that runs too fast - take a step away at Arvgarden. Keith and Hilma welcome you to their spotless B&B with a ease that fits right into their surrounding country side.

We were passing through and stayed only one night but enjoyed it very much. The rooms were spotless, contemporary and warm with simple furnishings. The hosts were great at suggesting a super place for dinner (Timeless Destinations) in nearby Wellsboro and Hilma immediately offered to make a reservation for us.

They provided everything we needed - there is no TV (which is fine with us) but the free wifi was great.

Breakfast the next morning was hearty and well prepared - with good conversation. The weather was rainy the day of our visit and we had not come prepared for it so were disappointed that we would not be able to walk about and visit with their beautiful Corriedale sheep. Hilma came to our rescue and provided boots and gear for a quick trek out to meet the herd. Her kindness was totally unprompted by any request from us and made it clear to us that being an innkeeper is not a hobby for her but something she truly cares about.

Keith was a great source of information on the area - we will definitely be back to explore when we have more time. So, if you love simple and non-fussy with great food and a beautiful surround - do not miss Arvgarden!

Most gracious hosts, we could have chatted with them for hours! Arvgarden is in a lovely rural setting and we enjoyed the peace and quietness, and also the pleasant walks on the farm. A great breakfast, thanks Hilma!

Having decided to visit the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon for Labor Day weekend, we could not find a hotel room. I have never stayed in a B&B but after reviewing the Arvgarden's web site and reading a review in Frommers's, we thought we would give it a try. I often rely on tripsdvisor but there was no review here at the time. The B&B is located just a few miles from the PA Grand Canyon and from the town of Wellsboro (which is definitely worth a visit and has several good eating options). The Arvgarden is in the country, very quiet and restful. And the stargazing is amazing. I haven't seen the Milky Way since I was a little kid. There are 4 guest rooms that look much like the picture in their web site. We stayed 3 nights in a room with 2 twin beds which we requested, and it was absolutely spotless. The floors are light hardwood, highly polished, the bath was spacious and also spotless. Everything seems like it is brand new, but not cold or hard. The linens are fresh and comfortable, clean quilts on the beds, and the decoration fits the Swedish style - spare and very tasteful. There is no air air conditioning that I could find; there is a ceiling fan and baseboard heat. No television which was fine with us and keeps things quiet among the guests; free wireless internet was much appreciated. I found it a little strange that you could not lock the bedroom door, especially given the close proximity to the common room and to the other bedrooms, but it still felt private. Water temperature fluctuated greatly during showers. The owners are very welcoming and professional, unobtrusive but available, and run the operation alone, including the sheep farm. You have the feeling of visiting friends or family. The breakfast alone is worth the visit, although I would prefer to have something available during a window of opportunity (at least an early cup of coffee I could grab, although I probably could have made a special request) instead of only an assembled sit-down breakfast at the same time daily. But the breakfast experience was a great opportunity to discuss the previous day's activities and get advice or ask questions of the owners and other guests, and probably works for most people. I imagine the fall foliage there is just magnificent.
The PA Grand Canyon area is very nice for hikers, bikers, bird watchers, and anyone who wants to get away from the city. The Arvgarden is a great option for sleeping, eating a delicious breakfast, and doing some magnificant stargazing. A tip: use their directions and not the ones you get from Google maps. It will save you some time and trouble.
