WOW! Such a peaceful place! I loved the big welcome me and my girlfriends received when we arrived! Not just from Miss Charlotte, but the pets as well! I felt like I was home! Charlotte provided so much history of the place it was amazing! There was plenty to do around the home with the trails and river nearby. We stayed in the Lindbergh room which is beautiful! The home is amazing; so comfortable. I will definitely visit Charlotte again!!! Thank you Charlotte!

I stayed at the Fox River B&B last weekend with a couple friends. It was so relaxing and comfortable. Charlotte is a wonderful hostess! The setting is in the beautiful countryside and the rooms are beautifully decorated. Breakfast was great and I loved the relaxing music and great tea selection. Definately going back whenever I can!

We recently chose the Fox River Bed & Breakfast for a ‘Girls Weekend’, and are so glad that we did! It was comfortable, cozy and the perfect setting for relaxation. The grounds were amazing and there was a lot of interesting places to visit within walking distance of the house. The breakfast was incredibly delicious! The hostess, Charlotte, is amazing and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome. We stayed in the Lindberg room which was beautifully furnished. All together very affordable. I would recommend this B&B to friends and look forward to a future visit!
