I can't begin to say enough wonderful things about our stay at the Fox Hill B&B. The property is amazing. The Cornwall suite where we stayed was wonderful - beautifully decorated, spacious and such a comfortable bed. We had our own little deck outside our door where we could just sit and admire the view. The property was a peaceful and relaxing oasis. Cathy and Mike ware lovely people who really make you feel at home. The breakfasts are delicious but just a warning - they serve a 3-course breakfast so don't fill up on the first two courses, they are just the appetizers. Our dog, Murphy, was in heaven. The grounds are well kept and sprawling. He enjoyed wandering around and meeting the horse,the donkey, the dogs and the cat. Whether you have dogs or not, we would highly recommend the Fox Hill B&B.


The Best B&B

Charming, Quiet, Relaxing get away. They have trails on the property to take your 4 legged little girl or boy on a nice walk. We love it and we will continue to visit year after year.

Relax Here!

Found this little gem close to some Civil War historical areas. It is without a doubt the best B&B we have been to. Mark and Sue are warm and inviting and they cook a MEAN breakfast. It's quaint and cozy away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to make day trips to Lexington or Natural Bridge, or other attractions.. Can't wait to go back.


Love this place!

Spent a few days here and just loved it. My room was huge and had everything I needed, and Sue and Mark were very helpful. I love the outdoors, and Sue told me about some great hikes (one to a small waterfall) and also recommended a canoe trip. Very relaxing visit.

Innkeeper Response
I'm so glad you liked the hikes and the canoe trip. Twin River Outfitters is the group who does canoe trips, along with kayaks and tubing, and every guest I've sent there has had a great time. We're always glad to tell you about the best things to do in the area!

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

5 on June 30, 2013

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...
