This is an amazing place to stay in the Ozarks! Comfortable and welcoming atmosphere with great amenities. The owners go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I always look forward to my trips to Ava so I can visit the Foxtrot Inn!

Relaxing overnight stay in Ava

3.4 on August 15, 2016

We were the only ones in the house so it was very nice, relaxing and quiet. Everything was very clean and cozy. 2 great restaurants across the street was a BBQ and a cafe. We ate very tasty BBQ the night we checked in and ate a early lunch before we left the next day. We were very disappointed in our 'breakfast'. Orange juice was ok, sweet rolls weren't good, didn't try the breakfast bar or the fruit cups. I eat no wheat and very few grains and no sugar. So the breakfast wasn't for me. Because this happens often, I had brought my own eggs and chicken sausage but wasn't allowed to use the stove top, per the house rules.

Innkeeper Response
Our commitment to our guests is to provide a clean, relaxing and affordable stay. While our breakfast basket is complementary for our guests that are on the go and do not have the time for a full gourmet sit down meal, the option is available at time of booking reservation. The gourmet breakfast is prepared around guests dietary needs/requests. However, the kitchen in equipped with a refrigerator, microwave and full size toaster oven for the guests use.

Best place in the area, especially if you don't want to stay in a chain motel. Would have liked a TV in our room and less potpourri. Breakfast was yummy as were fresh baked cookies!
