Charming Bed and Breakfast!

5 on May 19, 2016

We were pleasantly surprised in so many ways to find the cottage that we stayed in. Although it looked a little rugged at first, it was anything but rugged inside! It was very homey and it felt like we were out in the middle of nature with a babbling brook right outside our door. The breakfast was excellent! It was a great find!


Wedding weekend

3.8 on May 18, 2016

We stayed in the Master Bedroom of the main house. The room was very spacious and provided a beautiful view from the private balcony. The bed was large, but a bit too firm. Additionally, the coffeemaker was sub par and produced very bland watered down coffee. Perhaps a centrally located Keurig or other higher end coffee maker would be better. We were very excited about the fact that breakfast would be delivered to our room on Sunday. The breakfast consisted of sticky buns, blueberry muffins, pineapple, and orange juice.Our only complaint was that we wished the B&B had added a meat or something savory to tone down the carb/sugar overload. Overall, the B&B is a good value located in a beautiful country setting.

We've been coming here for almost 30 years. I was my first BB and it hasn't lost any of its charm in all that time. The owners are now the second generation with the third in the wings. You have to experience it.


Celebrating 70

5 on May 05, 2016

When my wife asked me what I wanted for my 70th birthday, I immediately told her that a weekend at my favorite B&B, Hickory Bridge, with her would be perfect. As it turned out, with superior coordination with the staff, they managed to pull off a surprise party for me. Best week end at any B&B ever. This is our 29th year of coming here and I'm looking forward to the next 29.


Everything I was hoping for!

I stayed in one of the cottages at Hickory Bridge for a mini get-away weekend, and it was absolutely perfect. The area is just gorgeous, and I LOVED having a room with a fireplace right on the creek. All the staff I met were wonderfully friendly and helpful, Breakfast was great. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the selection of hot drinks in the room was varied, interesting, and delicious! I would stay here again in a heartbeat. It was hard to leave to go back home!


Relaxing and Cozy

I love the country setting at the Farm. The rooms are very nice and the jacuzzi tub was really big and comfortable. The breakfast food is very good and we really enjoy the family style dining at the Barn right next door. Their food is great and so is the service at the restaurant.


Loved it.

My wife and I stayed in the "Sewing Room" for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. There was plenty of space, the room was clean, the employees were exceptionally nice and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend, and have already recommended to friends and family, staying at the Hickory Bridge Farm b&b. While we stayed there we enjoyed a day of snow tubing and skiing at Liberty Mountain Resort, enjoyed pizza at Ventura's pizza in Fairfield, and had a great weekend overall. We did eat at the Hickory Bridge Farm restaurant our first night and the family style dinner exceeded our expectations. The baked chicken and the fritters were a major hit. Also, the ice cream pie for dessert was the real deal!


Fantastic

My boyfriend and I only stayed one night, but it was absolutely wonderful. We arrived a little late due to traffic and out work schedules, but they were very accommodating regarding the late check in. We had dinner in the dining hall. The food was phenomenal. Our stay in the cottage was amazing, my boyfriend and I did have a mishap with the coffee maker, but that was our fault. (If you bring your own coffee, bring a filter as well for it.) Overall the accommodations exceeded our expectations, and we spent some lovely quality time together, and we are now planning on a trip when it's warmer when we can bring our three year old son with us.


Always enjoyable

We have stayed at Hickory Bridge sometime in the fall for several years. We enjoyed the serene atmosphere of the cabins, the friendly service, and cleanliness of the room. I forgot a piece of jewelry and it was returned promptly. It was just what we wanted in a weekend away. Lunch on Sunday was fantastic as we left filled with crab imperial, chicken, and roast beef along with sides fresh from the farm.


An Awesome Fine

A beautiful location for such a wonderful B and B with everything needed for a nice stay. Very clean and totally comfortable with a very helpful and friendly staff. My wife and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a dinner party of 28 guest and everything was perfect. Kathy worked with me on all the arrangements and was very helpful. Cannot say enough about how good the staff was, especially Ms. Sam, she is a real gem.
