I recently stayed one night at this guesthouse and it was far to short a stay. You can tell within five minutes of arriving that this is a special place. I loved everything about it! There are so many little touches that make it feel like home. The supper and breakfast we had were my favorite in all of our... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked this for our group of 20 people but I was delighted with our accommodations! From the minute we hiked in we were well taken care of by Gefen. We enjoyed the refreshing pool, relaxed in the orchards and gardens and leisurely ate fresh fruit from the trees before eating a dinner... More

I was with a group from the USA, who was hiking the Jesus Trail and stopped here for the night. We were exhausted and it felt like we had reached the "promised land" when we arrived. The setting is gorgeous and very relaxing. The food was amazing - the best meals we had our entire trip! Definitely take a trip... More

The owners of this establishment are very friendly and eager to please. Our apartment is clean and has a very welcoming feeling. We were served a delicious supper, I was only sad that our stay here has to be so short. I definitely recommend this place to anybody.

I chose Arbel Guest House as I wanted to spend some time in peaceful surrounds, in an area of obvious Biblical connection, where I could spend time relaxing and reflecting upon Gods great goodness to me. I couldn't have chosen a better location. As for the guest house and "Israel's" amazing cooking, the web site had wetted my appetite already,... More

Thanks to Sara, Israel, Gefen and the whole family for a wonderful 4-day stay at your Guest House. This is our third visit and we will be back! The accommodations are clean and comfortable with fast wifi, the service is excellent, and the cooking is beyond amazing. The surroundings are peaceful and a reasonable drive to various sites.

Before we went to Tiberias we already visited Jerusalem, Ber-Scheeba and Akko. We were. satisfied with all the accomodations we had, but then we came to the Arbel-Guesthouse near Tiberias. This was a totally new experience. A little oasis full of peace and friendliness. We felt welcome and spoiled by the Shavit family who owns the guesthouse. Breakfast and dinner... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Caution: there are similar guest house names in our location. Our guest house name is "Arbel Guest House Shavit Family." A unique farm guest house which is an attraction that no tourist can afford to miss: the atmosphere, the rooms and above all - the gourmet restaurant. This is one of the best places to enjoy a peaceful rest, gaining your energies for the next day of touring and enjoying the most wonderful dinner you have ever experienced. People say that the shavit guest house is a small model of the Garden of Eden: the trees, the flowers, the greenery, the swimming pool, the view, the air and the atmosphere. Others can never forget the gastronomic experience. The outstanding meat dishes served for dinner, the food preparation by "Chef ISRAEL" in front of the diners, the exquisite breakfast, and finally the secret chocolate cellar. Chef ISRAEL makes his own chocolate in the unique wine cellar aside from the wine variety, the olive oil products and the local honey. Our guest house is close to many historical sites in the area: - Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Druze. Arbel is within easy reach of all major centers in central and northern Israel (Golan Heights-Baines, Acre, Nazareth, Tabor, Capernaum, Tabha, Haifa, Safed, Caesarea, Bait- She' an) only one hour from us. We have apartments each with private bathroom and fitted kitchenette. Tea and coffee are freely available.* Self-catering * Breakfast and dinner are also available on request. ... more   less
