We recently had a reservation to stay at the Plain & Fancy Bed & Breakfast. We were almost there when we had to turn back home because of a family emergency. When I called to let the proprietor know we would not be staying with them, I was treated with compassion and respect. She told me that if she could rent the room (it was the beautiful Amish Room), she would issue me a refund. She also expressed her sympathy for our situation. We did receive a refund. I can only express my appreciation for this lady's grace and outstanding customer service. We hope to be in the area in the future, and we would not hesitate to book reservations again.

The accommodations were great. We loved the peace and quiet. It was just what we needed. However, the innkeeper was not very friendly and outgoing. If she was having a bad day, I will give her the benefit of the doubt. However, she was not engaging and was somewhat unfriendly. At one point, I even asked her if something was wrong. She did not engage me in conversation at all and during breakfast, stood in the corner and almost sulked. I hate to write a bad review but this is the only thing preventing me from recommending this to friends. The housecleaner was friendlier than she was. Again, if it was a difficult time for her, fine. But if this is her personality all the time, I believe she is in the wrong business.
I am so sorry that you felt I was not friendly. I want everyone who visits my home to feel welcome and comfortable. I always try to give each guest the attention that they need or want without trying to dominate the conversation. Obviously I failed with you, and I apologize.

We were looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend an hour or so from St Louis & found it at the 'Plain & Fancy'. Brenda & Tom are a friendly, inviting couple that served 2 wonderful gourmet breakfasts & interesting stories about their historical property. One of our priorities was a pool & they have a nice one. It was small, but very relaxing. We also enjoyed Thee Abbey, and Baylee's BBQ Restaurants. Both were great, especially the homemade ice cream at Thee Abbey. We'll go back again!

The staff was attentive to your needs yet also allowed you have your privacy. Nestled in the country yet not super far from civilization. Had a great breakfast in bed. I suggest any one to stay here at plain and fancy.

We picked this bed and breakfast by the reviews and must say it met our greatest expectations. We brought our two granddaughters who had never stayed at a bed and breakfast. They didn't know what to expect. However, they were delighted and couldn't wait to eat the delicious and huge cookies left in our room daily. They loved the freedom to use the pool and hot tube and to just be able to come and go on the premises. The breakfast was superb and most delicious! When we finished breakfast the first day, Tom & Brenda said,"See you tomorrow." My granddaughter, who would rather sleep in than eat breakfast said, "We won't miss it." That was a compliment. When we packed up to leave, I asked the girls what they thought. They said, we really liked it. It was MUCH better than a hotel room. "We felt taken care of!" :). We will keep you on our list when we return to Arcadia. Thanks for a wonderful stay

The room was lovely, very modern and comfortable. The towels all smelled like mildew though. The pool was very nice and well taken care of. The outdoor hot tub was not clean and you see scum built up around the edges, plus the water smelled liked mildew. The surrounding area was beautiful and was enjoyable to explore. The horseback ride was also enjoyable and Tim was a great guide.

We had a great stay at the Plain & Fancy. The rooms were gorgeous and very comfortable. The innkeepers were lovely hosts. I particularly appreciate how accommodating they were with my allergy to gluten. Breakfast was delicious and perfect!

We went sightseeing throughout the beautiful Arcadia Valley on the first and third days of our stay, while relaxing and enjoying the amenities at the B&B on the day in between. We read and relaxed in or around the pool, hot tub and whirlpool bath. It was wonderrful.

They provided all the extras. We stayed at other B & B's on our visit...same or more expensive, but not as good of quality.
