Our Academy offers comfortable themed rooms with all the amenities you need for a relaxing stay.

Welcome to the Historic Arcadia Academy, where history comes alive. Our two Bed and Breakfast houses, the Laundry House and Priest House, are two of the oldest buildings on our 20-acre campus. Built in 1846 and 1906 respectively, these houses have hosted many visitors of the Academy in our Arcadia Valley. Come and experience the nostalgia of the past with us.

The Priest House exhibits impressive architecture from its era, showcasing expansive rooms with ceilings towering towards 10 feet, intricate wood moldings, numerous large arched windows, and an extensive two-story, 60-foot balcony that offers views of the campus grotto and pond. The remarkable structure of the house provided the foundation for incorporating distinctive and inviting elements into the renovations, which are exclusive to the Academy Bed and Breakfast. The accommodations comprise of five distinctly themed rooms: The Cardinal Suite, The Provincial Suite, The Garden Room, The Hearth Room, and The Bishop's Room.

The Laundry House once served as the original building of the campus and later, the laundry facility for the school. Originally constructed in 1846, this three-story building boasts a charming outdoor patio at the rear, once dedicated to a greenhouse. Now, it hosts four modernly restored rooms, including a honeymoon suite with a heart-shaped tub and attached living room, two queen bedrooms with private bathrooms and a giant shared common room, and finally a penthouse suite upstairs with two bedrooms, perfect for a family.


We have an on-site Restaurant, Bakery, Creamery, Gift Shop and Antique Store.  We offer complimentary tours to our guests following breakfast, so you may fully enjoy the expansive campus.
