Seekers wanted! A common theme that is shared by many of our Bed And Breakfast Guests is that they come seeking something. It could be Rest, Peace, Solitude, Beauty, Companionship, Revitalization, Relaxation, Serenity, Adventure, History, Commitment, or just about anything. We have luxurious rooms that contain everything to make your stay at the Academy as rejuvenating as possible.
The Historic Arcadia Academy is registered as a National Historic District and the Bed and Breakfast is housed in one of the oldest buildings on the sprawling 16 acre campus. Built in 1902, the historic Priest House has played host to many dignitaries that would visit the Scenic Arcadia Valley.
This amazing home has great architecture for its time that features large spacious rooms with 10 foot ceilings, rich wood moldings, many large rolled glass widows and a massive two story, 60-foot balcony that overlooks the former garden areas. The incredible ‘bones’ of the home allowed for many unique and comforting features to be built into the renovations that are truly unique to the Academy B&B. There are 5 rooms available, The Cardinal Suite, The Provincial Suite, The Garden Room, The Hearth Room & The Bishop's Room.
The two State-of-the-Art Suites will spoil you with comfort. Appointed with sturdy yet elegant king beds, the suites also boast the largest shower many of our guests have ever seen. A full 24 square feet equipped with deluxe full body showers, the suite showers are easily a guest favorite. But we didn’t stop with the bed and shower, we made sure the spa tub, his and her granite sinks, and firm comfortable love seat furnishings were big enough for two! Spoiled elegance for two is the best way to describe our suites.
To complement our 2 suites we also have 3 other spectacular rooms. Each share the magnificent windows, rich woodwork, large rooms, private bathrooms and comfortable love seating arrangements that the suites have. However, in place of the jet tubs and large spa showers, these rooms feature an incredible 6 foot cast iron, claw foot tub and custom rain shower coming out of the ceiling. If you’ve never been in a 6 foot cast iron tub, its about time you tried one. The iron holds the heat and the spacious 6 foot length is large enough hold two people or one 6’6” person who can lay out and soak completely immersed in wonderful soothing hot water! The unique ceiling shower is fun to stand under and drench yourself as you wash away the cares of everyday life.
