Amazing experience start to finish: the property, suites, common areas, the breakfast and Ken and Arlis -- Inn Keepers extraordinaire!! If there were 10 stars available on this review they would have gotten them in every category....

A stay at Arkens Bed and Breakfast is an absolute delight. Ken and Arlis are the consummate hosts. They are personable, witty, and very entertaining. The guest rooms are elegant, comfortable and well appointed, and the Sword Room is a trip back to Medieval times. The house abounds with amenities such as a game room, swimming pool, hot tub and movie library. The breakfasts they prepared were veritable feasts for the palate. It is a must visit B&B. Don't forget to include a trip to Fossil Rim Wildlife center. Enjoy

Wow! This is a B&B experience on steroids! A smooth combination of warm, Southern hospitality combined with the charm and elegance of a Greek Mediterranean villa. Ken and Arlis go to the NTH degree to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. In fact, they make you feel so welcome that you swear you must be family! The facility is absolutely gorgeous. From the king size beds to the salt water pool, you are immersed in luxury throughout your entire stay. And did I mention the incredible food? Although the breakfast borders on excessive, it has the presentation and taste of a professional chef. The late afternoon desserts are delicious and rich enough to satisfy the most discriminating palate. It was a wonderful experience that I would strongly recommend to everyone! Larry & Linda Rogers, Plano, TX P.S. If you are dog lovers like us and the other guests are as well, you might even be able to convince Ken and Arlis to share their two wonderful “pug” girls with you!
