Delightful B&B

4.8 on July 08, 2014

Location was ideal for visiting Lake County attractions. Owners were friendly and helpful on giving directions and suggestions on where to eat. The mix of visitors made a lively breakfast conversation.

Great Place but Breakfast is too sweet

4.0 on July 07, 2014

You'd not ask for better host at this B&B. The scones are the best. An area I'd improve is breakfast. I can't eat sausage & thought it'd be substituted but it wasn't. Disappointing. Too much sweets also. Bad for diabetic. Make your needs known and this will help. If peppers are something you dislike list it so the owners know. Also let them know you are a diabetic and can't eat the wonderfully sweet french toast because it is bad for you. The room was wonderful but all but one room you have to climb stairs. Find out which one is on the first floor if you need this due to physical limitations. The rooms were quiet also which I didn't expect. Very lovely decorations throughout and the host is willing to share places to eat and visit. I would definitely go again as I really enjoyed the time spent there.

Very enjoyable stay

4.2 on July 04, 2014

Previous reviews were favorable so we decided to give it a try. Boy, were we impressed. The room was great and had a very private feel. Fitzgerald's have snacks and drinks in the room and ask for a donation in return - that was a nice touch. Breakfast was great - scones lived up to their reputation. Will definitely go back.

Will return to this charming place

4.2 on July 03, 2014

The inn was beautiful inside and out; so many places to take pictures for memories. Breakfast scones (cranberry & white chocolate) were pleasing to the palate ;-) Company of the Fitzgeralds was sweet; plenty of suggestions on what to do, but left us to rest and relax. Dinner location paid off with a free slice of key lime pie because we were guests of the B&B. Didn't understand the build up of dust on ledges and surfaces in the bedroom and in the bathroom, but general cleanliness was good.

Weekend Getaway

5 on July 02, 2014

We booked a weekend at Fitzgerald's just to get away. What an experience! The house, including our room (Galway) is simply amazing. Tom makes an wonderful breakfast and both Tom and Debra are great to talk to and spend time with. We will be back again!
