Your host is Valerie Speer who has been operating the Arbour Guest House since spring of 2010. She is a visual artist and some of her paintings are displayed throughout the Guest House.

You are invited to take in the tranquility of the valley by relaxing in the shaded garden or sunning yourself on the deck.  The Theatre and Mercantile are just up the sidewalk and gift shops are found just across the street.  Please feel free to use the living area as it is for guest use only.

Originally, the Arbour Guest House was a simple farm house built in the 1930's located near the local village of Rockyford. In World War II it was also home to German POW's who worked on the farm. One prisoner of war was an artist and painted wall murals on the living room plaster walls. The walls have been rebuilt but it is fitting that Valerie's artwork now graces these same walls. The house was moved to Rosebud and placed on a new foundation in the late 1980's.

What Visitors Say

We will be back again and again

We have been coming to the Rosebud Theatre 5 times a year for over ten years. For the December performance we usually stay overnight [at the Arbour Guest House] as my birthday gift. We love the experience here... It is close to the theatre, quiet, well professionally appointed guest rooms and the hospitality is simple and genuinely friendly. We will be back again and again.
