A House with Charm and Comfort
Our farm style house was built in the late 1800's and was once a dahlia farm. In 1986 Gladys Stuart opened the Stuart Manor Bed & Breakfast, fulfilling her retirement dreams.
Margo Stuart has now taken over the bed and breakfast and renamed it after her favorite Icelandic horse Aríel. The house has recently been redecorated with eclectic and sometimes whimsical treasures of Margo's travels to Europe and Africa.
You will also enjoy the numerous quilts that are decorating the walls and set around the house, inviting you to snuggle with.
There are four guest rooms, all with private baths that are tastefully decorated for your tranquil stay. Every room in the house has central air conditioning and Wi-Fi. You are encouraged to claim your favorite spot in the house with your computer and sip a glass of local wine or fruited ice tea and enjoy a snack that has been baked in Margo's kitchen.
The Sun Porch
The Sun Porch seats 16 people and makes a cozy spot to enjoy your breakfast. Everywhere you look in this room you will see interesting and unusual mementos of Margo's travels
The Formal Dining Room
This is the area where you may entertain guests for breakfast.
Be sure to explore the house to find the many little things that makes this house a true extension of Margo's personality.
This is definitely the "Heart of the House." Margo loves to cook and this is where she puts her talents to work. The kitchen features an original quilt wall hanging, rope lights, a pot rack, which is actually an antique rose trellis, along with tempting aromas and tasty treats. This is generally the gathering place of Ariel's Bed & Breakfast. Even Jones and Martin, the resident felines, like to savor the warm atmosphere and an occasional dropped crumb that is found here.
The Common Area
This area is for sitting and relaxing, chatting with fellow guests, curling up, under a quilt with a good book or watching television. You will find it to be a very comfortable spot.
You will be sure to enjoy your stay!
