Welcome to the Arcadia Valley.  The word “Arcadia” comes from the Greek, meaning a scene of simple pleasure and quiet.  As you travel throughout our valley, you will agree the name fits perfectly.

You are our guests and we cordially invite you to share with us the Arcadia Valley’s unsurpassed beauty and heritage.  The Fort Davidson Hotel sincerely hopes your stay with us will be a pleasant one.  Have fun and come back soon.

“The Arcadia Valley is one of the most delightful places I have ever been, with beautiful scenery all about, plenty of cool water available, making ice cease to be a luxury, and enough altitude to insure cool weather.” Ulysses S. Grant
