About Bill and Nancy Messbarger/ Owners & Hosts

Welcome to Arhaven Bed and Breakfast~ home to Bill and Nancy Messbarger, Hosts and Owners. Our home "Arhaven" started out as our dream home which we designed and had custom built 2006 on land that has belong to my husband's family since 1884. From the moment we picked the spot in the field and designed the floor plan for our future home, it took on this unique and incredible role for us. It became "our haven" from a busy world which is how the name "Arhaven" came to be. As we created landscaped gardens and decorated our home with wonderful and unique finds from our many travels, we noticed friends and visitors continually expressing to us how amazing and beautiful our place had become and that our home would make a wonderful bed and breakfast. Was it the continual encouragement that finally convinced us to really make our home into a bed and breakfast? Possibly~ I know it certainly played a part, but in our hearts and dreams Bill and I have wanted to do this for years. So ...we decided to move forward. We created a luxury suite in the main house and custom designed & built a new cottage for the B & B at the edge of the woods. We've spent the last year creating Arhaven B & B. Staying diligent to our vision of what we want our B& B to be to our guests! Our goal was to open June 1, 2015! So as planned on June 1, 2015, we held our ribbon cutting and began our journey as B & B owners of Arhaven Bed and Breakfast! We can honestly express to you that although we have only been open for less than two months our guests have been amazing, thoughtful and so appreciative of our Arhaven. We have made wonderful new friends and we are loving the journey!

Relaxing & fun weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Arhaven Friday & Saturday night and it was everything we hoped for and more! It was so nice to come into a beautiful suite after a long day hiking. The bathtub was incredible!! So relaxing to sit in the warm bath with the windows open. The bed was perfect, so soft and smelt amazing. We loved that everything smelt like lavender and stress relief, we feel so refreshed! Nancy made a wonderful breakfast both mornings, our bellies were full and we enjoyed every last bite! We sat out by the fire with amazing weather and a gorgeous full moon, we never wanted to leave! We would love to come back and stay again in the future! Couldn't have asked for a better weekend :)

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

An amazing overnight "glamping" stay at Arhaven's own "Feathered Nest". Attention to detail was second to none. Warm and friendly, Bill and Nancy serve up relaxation at its finest. Great hiking options in nearby Clear Creek Metro Park and Hocking Hills.

Very nice B&B for weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked Arhaven at the last minute for a weekend get-away for our anniversary. Bill and Nancy have a beautiful, quiet, peaceful place. We stayed in the Haven Nest in the main house. The suite was big, comfortable, and private. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Arhaven is phenomenal

  • 5 of 5

The pictures online don't do this place justice. It is beautiful. The grounds, the food, the house, the bedroom, the hosts, the ambience, the peace and quiet, and the overall experience was just exceptional. Loved our time there and highly recommend it to everyone.

Honeymoon retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this B & B on VRBO. The treatment we received and accommodations were top notch. From the moment our heads hit the pillows (spritzed with lavender to induce a deep sleep) to the delicious breakfast and warm hospitality from Bill and Nancy, we knew we found the perfect honeymoon retreat. Nancy's attention to every detail left us wanting for nothing. The French Country decor was amazing. You would think it was right out of a classic decor magazine. We kept trying to figure out how we could replicate the charm and warmth at our own home in Michigan.

If are looking for a place to unplug and just enjoy the gifts of life then you will want to book your stay here in the near future. If you should decide to venture off for a day adventure you will love the large soaking tub when you return. Nancy has the oils and salts to make it extra relaxing.

And, to top it off, Bill and Nancy have the greatest dog named Bella who will also charm you with her friendliness. The only item it lacked was a hammock built for two which they plan to add next year. Thank you Bill and Nancy for the beautiful honeymoon. Best regards, Karl and Yo B.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed with the hospitality of Nancy and Bill and their beautiful home. Extremely relaxing and couldn't have asked for better hosts. The room was spacious and the bathroom was amazing. In the morning, breakfast was served on the back porch and was delicious! We definitely will be retuning here!
