Greg and Peter were wonderful hosts. The room was extremely clean and a good size. The views of their garden and towards the bay were spectacular. Their breakfast was an absolute masterpiece - great choices, variety each day and so well served. We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend them to anyone looking for special accommodation so close to Russell town centre.

This historic house, built in the early 1900's has been beautifully maintained with exquisite attention to detail throughout. The views are stunning and the breakfasts, prepared by one of the hosts who is a trained chef are to die for. Easy walking distance into Russell, with loads to do, see, and places to eat there. A variety of rooms and super friendly hosts, can't wait to return, summer or winter.

Historical Bnb
Historic Bnb with multi level rooms. Hosts were gracious Would return with request of a main level room which had views. The attic room was with no view, low ceilings and slanted floors. Enjoyed Russell and it’s history.

Amazing Arcadia!
Arcadia Lodge is a very special place. The hosts, Greg and Peter, have lovingly crafted a nest of tranquility overlooking the water, on the edge of Russell. From the accommodation to the meals, to the caring from G and P, it was an idyllic stay.
