My wife and I stayed at Chez Fiona for three days and it was a wonderful break from our usual frantic existence. Fiona made a different kind of breakfast each day, one of which was a traditional full English meal which we hadn't experienced since we were in the U.K. several years ago. In back, there's a deck with comfortable... More

The hosts Fiona and Sabrina are just wonderful! The B&B is so charming with each room decorated completely different! It's a whole new experience just across the hall! Daily tea time here is amazing! It brings us back home since our Grandma is British herself. We love it here and hope you enjoy your stay as well!

Norwalk may not be the first place on your list to visit in this area, and indeed it was only meant as a stopping-off place after visiting the Philip Johnson Glass House. However, it was worth staying with Chez Fiona for the escapism and homeliness of the accommodation and the friendliness of the host. Fiona is fascinating to chat to,... More

So glad that you had a pleasurable experience staying with us! It would be wonderful to see you again for more than a night should you find yourself this side of the pond. Next time I'd recommend a trip to Kykuit - it makes for a perfect day trip, particularly in spring, summer and fall. More

My two brothers, a sister in law, and I stayed with Fiona for one night, taking three of the four rooms. All four of us were delighted with Chex Fiona, especially her warm hospitality. Breakfast was substantial and delicious, tea and snacks upon arrival, available beer/wine, excellent suggestion for a close-by Itallian restaurant, great beds. Only caveat would be the... More

Thank you for your nice review! We are so glad that you enjoyed the hospitality. It was a pleasure to meet you all. Just brings me to think about the Russian and British connection - such a small world! Osteria Romana (Italian Restaurant) is indeed a gem, and we are delighted to have it on our doorstep....All the best to... More

I cannot say enough about four nights we stayed at Chez Fiona. She is a professional yet beyond friendly host. Her knowledge of the area and willingness to help out in any way was amazing. The room was clean and beautifully decorated. We just felt at home in every way possible. Her daughter Sabrina made lovely signs that awaited us... More

Cannot say enough good things about my three days with Fiona. Facilities great, bed wonderful, breakfasts beyond excellent, coffee exactly the way I make it at home. Marvelous conversations. I felt utterly at home by the second day. Highly recommended.

On our vacation we stayed in two hotels and at Chez Fiona and by far this bed and breakfast outshined the hotels! Not only is the place beautiful and clean- it is quiet and peaceful. We kept our windows opened all night to listen to the crickets. Fiona and Brina were warm and welcoming and Fiona spent a great deal... More

Our stay at chez Fiona was wonderful. The B&B is clean and very pretty. Each room has a theme, with very nice decorations and much provided for you.

All the positive reviews are more than justified. Fiona has a beautiful house in the perfect setting for those looking for a bit of peace and tranquility. Fiona is very hospitable and whose local knowledge was very helpful. Excellent value for money and a bit of an insight into the most affluent state in the US.
