Must Go!!!!!

What can I say. Sue and Mark have a wonderful place. Beautiful view of the mountains, in a country setting. The rooms are HUGE and well set up. Breakfast is great. I have been there several times and I can tell you that they make me feel like family every time.

Scenic B & B

I stayed at the Fox Hill Bed & Breakfast for 3 nights. It was extremely clean and nicely furnished. The décor was beautiful. It is nicely located in the country, where it is quiet and it is easy to drive to town. The room had a private bathroom and a small refrigerator with drinks inside. The breakfast each morning was original and delicious. The view from the room was magnificent.

All-around great experience

My girlfriend and I spent two nights here in the fall. I'll start by saying that the hosts are absolutely wonderful. Mark and Sue are gracious, friendly, attentive, and thoughtful. They keep the rooms are as clean as any I've ever enjoyed. The grounds are gorgeous and well-maintained. The amenities were exactly as promised on their website. Breakfasts were above and beyond what we expected. You would pay a lot of money at a 5 star restaurant to eat so well. The location is perfect for a weekend getaway - close to tourist attractions, but far enough from the city to see an absolutely beautiful starscape on clear nights. If you're looking for a place to unplug for a few days and enjoy some fresh air, Fox Hill is the place.

For a comfortable and relaxing weekend, stay at Fox Hill B&B

5 on October 01, 2012

Fox Hill was our first B&B that we stayed in and we could not have been more pleased with the room, service and the delicious breakfast that was served. The owners were wonderful people and they made you feel right at home. I was very excited and happy that we could bring our two dogs with us because they do travel everywhere with us. They were very accommodating to all of us. We would highly recommend Fox Hill to anyone that is interested in having a relaxing and fun weekend.

Beautiful and Relaxing

We recently had an overnight stay in the Cornwall room at Fox Hill. Mark and Sue were so friendly and answered questions before we could even think of them. The room was very spacious and immaculate. We took a walk over the grounds and they are lovely. Even our cockapoo felt at home and appreciated being thought of with his own complimentary treat left in our room!

Why did I have to go back to reality???

5 on June 20, 2012

I wish I would have stayed two nights but I had to get back to reality....For someone whos never been to a B&B I was amazed it was like going on vacation to my moms house...warm cozy and just relaxing, I have to thank Mark and Sue for making me feel so at home from the brownie bites and personal "welcome to Foxhill" card to the amazing breakfast on Sunday morning ... best nights sleep I've had in months...I cant wait to go back and continue my adventure out there. Definetly plenty of things to do in the area make sure to check the town calendar for special events...

Weekend getaway

5 on May 25, 2012

My husband and I came here fit a few days and loved it. It was so peaceful and beautiful. Our hosts were lovely and very personable. We both agree this is one of the best B & B's we have ever stayed at. Food was fantastic and different.

Wonderful long weekend

5 on April 01, 2012

Having stayed at B&Bs from Vermont to North Carolina to Florida, we have a lot to make comparisons. Fox Hill is a terrific place to relax and enjoy a beautiful inn, wonderful hosts, amazing surroundings, and of course, a great breakfast. There is plenty to see and do close by. Lexington is a short drive and offers antiques, art galleries, fine dining, and much more. Outdoor activities will keep you busy and working up an appitite for dinner.

an amazing experience

5 on December 12, 2011

We enoyed our time here. The room was large, but incredibly cozy with tasteful decoration and a cheery fireplace. Views were amazing to include a beautiful sunset and mountains all around. We enjoyed the animals, which were very friendly, and Mark made an excellent breakfast both mornings . Highly recommended.

Best b&b yet

4.6 on May 30, 2011

We chose this b&b for our 25th anniversary because of the location and the beautiful grounds. It was more than we expected! The room is more elegant than the pictures on the web site, yet not stuffy or "fru-fur". the views from our room were stunning. We stayed on the grounds most of one day just enjoying a private grassy spot near a babbling brook reading and sunning. Mark and Sue great hosts- very helpful and available. We loved the private deck and entrance. We will definitely return!
