Long weekend at Artha's

3.8 on August 24, 2013

Great place ... Bob & Marguerite are great people :-)


Very nice experience

3.4 on July 17, 2013

I feel a bit guilty using 3 stars but that is what I am suppose to use for meeting my expectations which I consider to be a very good on a different scale. I would definitely be willing to go back and stay there again. It is very peaceful and quiet even though all rooms were being occupied. Breakfast was scrambled eggs, pancakes, juice, and coffee - no meat and no organic veggies. I am used to more variety with other B&B's.


Beyond expectations

3.8 on August 31, 2012

My husband and I stayed three days and learned a great deal about sustainable technology and how to incorporate it into a lifestyle that is anything but austere. Marguerite and Bob are gracious hosts and we will stay there again in the future.


Friendly AND educational!

4.6 on October 02, 2011

Warm and welcoming, Bob and Margarite are more than gracious hosts in to their sustainable B & B. The first in the country to use solar heating, it was literally warm and cozy, even with VERY cool temps outside. Margarite's breakfasts left us wanting to return again and again: everything homemade, with vegetables, fruits, and even maple syrup fresh from the farm. If you are anywhere in the area looking for a quiet place to stay that's clean and comfortable, stay at Artha!
