These were my accommodations as I returned to the haunts of my youth nearly fifty years ago. The proprietor was outstanding, welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. She's a real Renaissance woman, part innkeeper, cook, shopkeeper, artist, equestrian, and dog lover.

The rooms were clean comfortable and you feel right at home. We met the most loving friendly and well behaved Huskies. The owner was friendly hospitable and informative. The Homemade breakfast was delicious Highly recommend a must place to stay when in the area.

Although Suzanne's focus is more on her equine painting than creating a tea room atmosphere today, the quality of her tea offerings and her scones cannot be beat. It is still a destination worth driving two hours to experience. The design and many varied items in her lovey gift shop is a delight to see as well.

This was my second annual stay at Rose Arbour, and it felt like coming home. Suzanne has provided so many small amenities--tea and coffee fixings, immaculate, fluffy terry cloth robes--along with her warm welcome. The wrap-around porch and upstairs sitting room are so inviting that it's hard not to stay an extra day. Yes, the bath is shared, but it... More

Two years ago this tea room was so nice. It is no longer a tea room, as advertised! This year....We were seated by the faded jean clad hostess in a corner of what seemed to be a oversized hallway to the bathroom, this should have been my first clue. Our other choice of seating was the chilly porch. My view... More

We stopped here to sample the desserts we had heard about and were glad we did. The front porch was a great place to hang out, drink some freshly prepared tea and sample the outstanding chocolate date cake that had been made that morning. The host/owner,Suzanne, was pleasant and friendly and we liked her shop too where we bought some... More

Lovely old house with a caring and attentive innkeeper. Breakfast was awesome. Rooms are clean and attractive but not quite as pretty as some bed and breakfasts I have seen. Has a neat little shop downstairs and a tea room where you can enjoy high tea! Warn the owner the day before if you are looking to do high tea... More

We were the only guests at Rose Arbour on the day after Christmas. Our three-room suite was a delight, with antique decor, books, a cozy stove and a view of the town. The tea room and gift shop downstairs serve a variety of treats, but the most unique is the work of the artist/inn-keeper, Suzanne Nielson. Her paintings of horses... More
