You will be throughly spoiled!

5 on May 20, 2015

We just spent four wonderful days at Arrowhead. It is perfection. We stayed in the huge Brittain room. The bed was SO comfortable with great pillows and a perfect bathroom. It seems every detail has been thought of and tastefully attented to, from comforts to decorations. A beautiful property, beautifully decorated. And the food: every breakfast was a wonder and we had a dinner there as well - great food, beautifully prepared and served. Gloria and Phil are perfect hosts. I can go on and on. My only caveat is that having stayed there we are now thoroughly spoiled for anywhere else.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for staying with us and for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! The Brittain room really is a gem, we are glad you found it to be both comfortable and luxurious. We do work hard to keep the property well groomed inside and out and it is so good to hear that you appreciate it! Phil was tickled at your description of the food, so glad you enjoyed it. Please come visit again anytime!


Charming, Comfortable, Pleasant and Delightful

5 on May 06, 2015

My mom and I stayed two memorable days at Arrowhead Inn, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The couple who runs it, LOVES what they do, and it shows. Phil Teber is a masterful chef, who infuses love, peace and joy into his culinary creations, which are memorable. The first morning's breakfast was one of the most delicious things I'd ever tasted. Serving gourmet food is an art, and he is a grand artist--even the presentation was beautiful and done with care and attention. Gloria kept herself busy making sure all our needs were met. The feeling guests get is that they CARE and really want to make you happy and at home. Warmth and graciousness augment the pleasure of staying in such a classy place. The place more than lives up to its website's claims of 'grand elegance' and 'private oasis'. It was even better than we expected, because they pay attention to every small detail to make the place one of comfortable and beautiful ambiance. Even the toilet paper roll has a flower crafted into it! The rooms are charming and tastefully decorated with an artist's eye...and much of the woodwork is masterfully crafted by Phil, who is as gifted a carpenter as he is a cook--and he is also a person whose authentic smile never ceases to appear! Highly recommend this place for any kind of traveler seeking a refuge of comfort, beauty, peace and good food! Nice garden, too. I noticed quite a few couples staying there...and it seems like a hugely romantic thing to do...they all looked enraptured. Thanks you to Phil and Gloria Teber for a memorable experience. We'll be back!

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful experience and great location for our proposal/engagement celebration

5 on April 13, 2015

Phil and Gloria were very friendly and accomodated many last minute requests (even making us a delicious dinner set by candle light) and took many other extra steps to make sure our special day was very special. The food was excellent at dinner and for breakfast. I have zero complaints about the experience.

Innkeeper Response

Outstanding! Phil and Gloria were so welcoming and awesome. The food was great, the bathroom and in room tub were spotless and well taken care of. I thought having the tub in the bedroom would be strange but it wasn't, It felt cozy and thought out.

Arrived late and departed after breakfast. Had a great nights sleep in a very comfortable bed. In room tub and fireplace were a nice feature. Excellent breakfast, scones with lemon curd were the best we ever had.

One night stay in a delightful and very comfortable cottage. Excellent breakfast prepared by Phil. Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. Comparable to other B&B in the upper echelon

Mother/Daughter Road Trip

5 on August 26, 2013

This was our first stop on our annual Girls Road Trip, and it definitely started us off in style. The innkeepers were so gracious and friendly. We stayed in the Carolina Cabin, and it was fantastic. We marveled at how clean the cabin (including cozy bedroom loft) was. It was such a comfortable stay. The breakfasts were delicious, and we had dinner at the Inn on one of our nights, and it was fabulous (a highlight). My daughter had dietary restrictions, and the chef worked with them so well. The grounds were beautiful. It was simply the perfect way to start our vacation. Thank you!

Innkeeper Response
What a fun way to start off a mother/daughter road trip! Thank you so much for your thoughtful review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we were able to contribute to a memorable trip. We are always happy to work with guests who have dietary restrictions or special requests, we are glad we were able to cater to your daughters needs! We hope you will be back to visit again soon.
