We had the privilege of staying one night in October for a quick get away to Arcola and Arthur. Based on the wonderful reviews, we decided Arcola Flower Patch Bed & Breakfast would be perfect and with great anticipation of their famous 7 course breakfast! We were welcomed by Lynn and Bill, the owners, who are the friendliest innkeepers we...

The 7 course edible flower and herb breakfast was so good I booked a 2nd night just to experience it again. Lynne and Bill made my dreams come true explaining the flowers and herbs over fine China. We throughly enjoyed a respite from Chicago and encourage anyone who can get there to enjoy a great getaway. Arthur, Arcola, Yoder's Kitchen...

We discovered the Flower Patch in Arcola 25 years ago, while attending the Raggedy Ann Festival. Returning every year since then is like coming home to friendly, secure, comfort with old friends and new guests. Children love to look for fairies in the garden. The description given in the brochure is not exaggerated--and those breakfasts! Be prepared for great food...

Originally went here for our honeymoon. Such friendly owners, lovely home, amazing 7 course breakfast. Yes 7 course. Such a fun relaxing getaway. Near antiques, and Amish country. Cannot say enough about the attention to detail at breakfast. So fancy and fun. Delicious too! Hope to return many more times! Would be great for couples or girls getaway weekend.

This is the second time we've come here for our girls weekend. It was the first B&B we had ever stayed in and the bar was set HIGH! None others have measured up and our second stay this time was just as wonderful as the first time.

We love this place when we come to visit this area. This is our second stay. The rooms/common areas are very clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast is Fabulous!! The owners are extremely welcoming and informative about the area. They stayed and talked with us after breakfast for quite a while. Our only concern: We booked the "Lavender Room" which...

We were in Arcola for a bluegrass festival, and I found this exceptional place on line. We have had only one other B&B experience, and the "Legendary 7 course breakfast" intrigued me.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Featured in Midwest Living & Country Sampler, this Victorian B & B offers a lovely downstairs parlor, shaded porch swing, quiet gazebo for tea or coffee & gift shop. The Flower Patch swirls with creative energy. There’s so much to see. Lynn, the Artist in Residence, displays framed porcelain art and watercolors throughout the house. Every room abounds with floral arrangements, crafts, curios and family memorabilia. With floral rugs, potted plans and displays of fresh and dried flowers, it’s always spring at the bed & breakfast. Guests and non-guest alike are welcome to tour the backyard garden, where the Harshbargers grow the herbs used in their epicurean masterpieces. ... more   less

“I would choose a room in the Diamond House. These rooms seemed a little larger and were upstairs from where breakfast was served. Also, this is a B&B so no swimming pool and no fitness center.”
