Eclectic and elegant would be the words best describing Arkens B&B in Granbury Texas.  A couple of weeks ago Bob and I celebrated our 27th anniversary.  We usually like to go somewhere special to celebrate and it was very special. Granbury Texas is about an hour's drive from us and it had been a while since we visited there. The photos will show how special it was but the real heart of the B&B lies in the beholders.  They were Arlis and Ken.  Arlis and Ken are a retired couple from the Aerospace Industry in California.  We really enjoyed our periodical visits with them.  They only offer two rooms but I think this allows more time for the special attention we received from them while offering numerous amenities.  Their beds with sleep number mattresses allow comfort to your specifications.  Everything from drinks and snacks are included.  We left for dinner and upon our return they had a delicious dessert prepared.  There were over 4,000 video's available to chose from and included.  The breakfast was wonderful.  They checked with us first to see if there was anything we didn't like or are allergic to.
I wanted to note that the Lighted Box in the pool room is actually marble that weighs over 1000 lbs.  I found it amazing you can see through the marble if lighted from behind.  It was so beautiful!

Granbury is a quaint town which has grown in the past few years presenting more shops, hotels, theaters,  and restaurants.  They even have a trolley car. We plan to return to Arkens later this summer with friends.
