Our beautifully restored 1880s home in the Starr district (2 miles to Earlham) features fine woodwork and architectural detail. Three lovely guest bedrooms upstairs sleep two each with shared bath. Enjoy breakfast made with fruit from our garden.
Surprisingly cozy, “Arden Hearth” is a grand old Victorian with seven decorative fireplaces, a sweeping entrance hall, front and back parlors, and a stunning oval dining room. Upstairs, the front two adjacent bedrooms are ideal for a family, with a double bed in one and two twin beds in the other; a third back bedroom offers more privacy with a full bed and a couch. Guests share one large bath with shower and tub upstairs; there is also a downstairs bath without shower. Although there is no A/C, older homes were built to maintain comfortable temps year-round; in summer, we provide electric fans and in winter, down comforters. The house is not handicap-accessible; you must be able to climb stairs.
Guests may relax and visit in the parlors or enjoy walking the meditation labyrinth in the back garden. They may also reserve the downstairs for small gatherings such as birthday parties, bridal showers, or reunions for an additional fee, depending on the size of the group and duration of the event.

We work out of our home and thus are around quite a bit. We are happy to share the history of the house with guests and offer info on places to go and things to do in the area. While we enjoy getting to know folks who visit, we are also fine with giving you space if you prefer. Just let us know what you’re comfortable with, and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Since this is an older, historic home, we ask that guests tread gently and be careful of the woodwork and art throughout the house. Strictly no smoking. Although there is no set curfew, please limit noise after 11pm. We have one friendly mature cat who likes to be the center of attention, so we cannot allow other pets at this time.
