Thanks to Sara, Israel, Gefen and the whole family for a wonderful 4-day stay at your Guest House. This is our third visit and we will be back! The accommodations are clean and comfortable with fast wifi, the service is excellent, and the cooking is beyond amazing. The surroundings are peaceful and a reasonable drive to various sites.

This was a totally new experience. A little oasis full of peace and friendliness. We felt welcome and spoiled by the Shavit family who owns the guesthouse. Breakfast and dinner...

The Shavit family have put a tremendous amount of effort, care and affection into this country guest house. This is evident from the friendly attitude of those Shavits we encountered during the three days we spent there. Even the placements of the hooks in the bedroom and elsewhere, so important for travelers, caught my eye! The personal attention of the...

We stayed one night in the guest house. The room was clean. We spent some time in the swimming pool, very relaxed. Geffen was friendly and helpful. We got great tips on places that we can visit nearby from him.

I have traveled quite a bit, but the Shavit family has the best Guest House I have ever stayed in! The combination of the warm welcome and care of Sara Shavit and her son Geffen, made us feel right at home. The fabulous creations of chef Israel Shavit were absolutely superb! (Including his hand made chocolates!) We spent two nights...

Israel prepares superb breakfests. His sun, which runs the place, is very freindly and supportive. The rooms are clean. The beds are good. Everything is working. The pool is fun. Not cheap but fair prices. I will recomend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Caution: there are similar guest house names in our location. Our guest house name is "Arbel Guest House Shavit Family." A unique farm guest house which is an attraction that no tourist can afford to miss: the atmosphere, the rooms and above all - the gourmet restaurant. This is one of the best places to enjoy a peaceful rest, gaining your energies for the next day of touring and enjoying the most wonderful dinner you have ever experienced. People say that the shavit guest house is a small model of the Garden of Eden: the trees, the flowers, the greenery, the swimming pool, the view, the air and the atmosphere. Others can never forget the gastronomic experience. The outstanding meat dishes served for dinner, the food preparation by "Chef ISRAEL" in front of the diners, the exquisite breakfast, and finally the secret chocolate cellar. Chef ISRAEL makes his own chocolate in the unique wine cellar aside from the wine variety, the olive oil products and the local honey. Our guest house is close to many historical sites in the area: - Jewish, Christian, Moslem and Druze. Arbel is within easy reach of all major centers in central and northern Israel (Golan Heights-Baines, Acre, Nazareth, Tabor, Capernaum, Tabha, Haifa, Safed, Caesarea, Bait- She' an) only one hour from us. We have apartments each with private bathroom and fitted kitchenette. Tea and coffee are freely available.* Self-catering * Breakfast and dinner are also available on request. ... more   less
