My husband and I stayed two nights at the Fitch Claremont just to get away from Life for a bit. We were warmly welcomed and shown to our room, a lovely, clean bedroom with an enormous bed - perfection. Nora's breakfasts were delightful and plentiful. Warren's love of their vineyard and the pride in his wines was obvious. The views, grounds, and atmosphere were more than we could imagine. So many different birds were there enjoying the vineyard too. We loved every minute of our stay and hope to go back in the Fall.

Wonderful, relaxing weekend. We just returned from a 2 night stay at Fitch Claremont Vineyard B&B. The Fitch Claremont consists of 4 rooms each with a private bath. Each room is uniquely decorated and has an electric fireplace for those chill nights. This was actually our third stay at Nora and Warren’s B&B and we are looking forward to a return trip. It is close to the highway yet very quiet with a nice country like setting. We stayed in the Fitch Room, which was nicely decorated, very clean and the room also had a great view of the vineyard. There was an electric fireplace that provided a nice romantic touch. The entire B&B is very warm and inviting and Nora and Warren make you feel very welcome. We had a full breakfast each morning, which also included wine; in the very bright sunroom overlooking the vineyard. We meet 3 other couples there and breakfast conversation was plentiful. One of the younger couples we meet wants to plan a return trip with his parents and is hoping we will be able to meet up with them again on their return trip in the Spring/Summer. Friday night we enjoyed a great dinner at Modesto’s, very close to the B&B. It was such a nice day out on Saturday we took our bottle of wine outside and enjoyed it while sitting on the patio looking at the foliage. After breakfast on Sunday and before we checked out Warren gave us a nice tour of the vineyard explaining the process of winemaking along with a tasting. While staying you’re a short drive to Mystic, CT. You can visit the Mystic Seaport or Aquarium and then shop in the Mystic Village. Abbey’s is also a short drive to Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods. If you stay in the fall a MUST visit is the BF Clyde’s Cider Mill - Website: www.bfclydescidermill.com. So if you’re looking for nice place to get away and escape from reality you will find it here.

lovely B&B, beautiful rooms and very clean. The house and the vineyard property was really beautiful. The breakfasts were quite delicious as well! We traveled into Mystic and it was only a 25 minute ride and very convenient.

This is a great value for your stay. We were warmly greeted by Nora upon pulling in. It was the fastest check in I have ever experienced and we felt right at home immediately. Based on their recommendation we enjoyed a wine tasting at a local vineyard. During our stay we had snacks and wine on the patio outside and strolled the vineyard. Before going out for dinner we had a lovely visit with Warren and Nora and tasted another type of wine that he makes. They were lovely hosts that make you feel right at home in their inn. Don't miss breakfast or you will regret it! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the sun room! I definitely plan on going back and when we left it was a short ride to downtown Mystic. So many things are close by, yet you can relax away from it all at a charming bed and breakfast.
