Our hosts were gracious and the B&B had an authentic downhome Irish feel. The rooms were immaculate, themed with a blend of old and new. Our only regret was that the full breakfasts are server on the weekend and we were there mid-week. I bought the additional romance package and my companion was thrilled with the Champagne, flower, chocolates, robes and basket.

We had a 2 night stay (Aug 4 & 5, 2014- the Mayo room) and it was amazing. The accommodations were outstanding and Tom and Deb were terrific hosts. We plan to return in Sept and also in Dec. This BnB is at the top of our list!

Like a Reunion

Going to Fitzgerald's Bed & Breakfast is like going to a reunion where all your favorite people have congregated. The owners make you feel that welcome! The rooms are incredible, decorating remarkable, and the value fantastic. The morning breakfast is worth getting out of bed for! In summary, we can't wait to go back! The Catlin's

A grand piece o' heaven!

When we found that this gorgeous b&b had an opening for our night out, we snatched it up. We were so glad we did! The atmosphere of the home is wonderful and everywhere you look you find something interesting. The backyard is lovely, with its fountain, lovely landscaping, and adorable pet ducks. And the breakfast? Oh my goodness, it was the most delicious breakfast I have EVER eaten! You won't be sorry you chose Fitzgerald's Bed & Breakfast for your getaway.

Fitzgerald B&B great place to go!

Fitzgerald B&B was beautiful! Nice BIG Rooms & Complimentary food & drinks in room as well. Didn't sleep well bed was a bit hard but then again who really sleeps well away from home? They do have an amazing back yard area to enjoy and the breakfast scones are amazing my only complaint about that is... We wished there were more! Highly recommended!

Lovely place.

Tom was very pleasant to visit with and helpful. The home has lots of character, beautiful yard and entertaining pets. Our room was clean and comfortable. The floors were creaky and we did hear the guests above us moving around. It didn't disturb us, but something to consider if you are a light sleeper. Were disappointed to only have a continental breakfast. It was a nice breakfast but not what we expected from a B&B at this price point.

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.
