Welcome to Ararat Acres People Accommodations


Rooms Available

Ararat Acres has two guest rooms available. Each room has its own private bathroom, a private entrance, and an in-room refrigerator.

1. The “Purina Room” is decorated in honor of our favorite feed company! It is a mixture of reds and whites, antiques, and Purina memorabilia. We don’t think there’s another room like this in America! The bed in the Purina room is a uniquely handmade iron, queen sized bed.

2. The “Barn” is actually a full apartment which includes a bedroom, full kitchen, living room, and bathroom. It is comfortably furnished in antiques and animals. The bathtub/shower is one of a kind, built with white stone. You won’t want to get out of the shower! The bed is a handmade 4 poster full sized bed. There is also a queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room.

A Full breakfast is ready for your pleasure each morning. If you need to be back on the road earlier, we will be happy to provide a simple continental breakfast to take on the go. Given advance notice, we will be pleased to accommodate special dietary needs of our guests.
