Great stay here during visit to W&L. Quiet, very well-maintained. Cathy and Mike are great hosts who are very suited to being innkeepers. Outstanding breakfasts.

Mountainside gem

5 on November 01, 2017

We were looking for a place in Shenandoah and found Fox Hill online so weren’t certain what we would end up with. Our stay far exceeded our expectations. The views were spectacular! The suite (The Fairfield) was cozy, romantic and beyond comfortable. The innskeepers had thought of every little detail to make our stay pleasant. The 3 course breakfasts were homemade, homegrown and superb. We can’t wait to go back!!


Outstanding B&B!

Our second stay at Fox Hill was even better than the first. Lovely spacious room. Beautiful property. Fantastic three course breakfast. Cathy and Mike are delightful hosts. Looking forward to a third stay. Jim Gnecco, Cranberry Township PA


Definitely the place to stay...

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!

- Sue (Innkeeper)


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

5 on November 28, 2012

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.
