We stayed a week with Steve and Karol Carr, in a wonderful bedroom, cozy and charming. Breakfast was extraordinary -- fresh ingredients, local growers supported, and absolutely delicious. I recommend anyone choose to stay here for one night or more!

Great place to stay, comfortable, nice private bath, very well maintained, very sociable owners who are knowledgeable about the area, walking distance to uptown restaurants, historic jail where Joseph Smith was killed, and to great Hancock County Historical Society with a wealth of information. B&B is very clean, furnished with lots of antiques, and nice big outside porch for sitting.

We enjoyed a delightful three day adventure @ the Fitz Randolph historic Inn while in town for my husband's Carthage High School 50th class reunion. The awesome ambiance and period furnishings of the Fitz provided a step back to a bygone era. The Turret Room was lovely and spacious plus afforded a gorgeous view. We especially enjoyed our morning coffee... More

Carol is such a wonderful host and the place is perfectly maintained; clean and comfortable and nicely decorated. If you're staying anywhere near Carthage, this is THE place to stay. Breakfast is delicious and wi-fi is also included in the price.

Every six months several of us are in Carthage for business and we always stay at the Fitz Randolph House. Steve and Carol are great hosts and always make each of us feel welcome and comfortable. This is a non-smoking facility which is appreciated. Each large room has a different and interesting theme along with it's own bathroom. Breakfast is... More

From the first moment to the last, you will be enchanted by this lovely inn and the equally lovely owner(s). We state it this way because Steve was out of town, but we are sure that his friendliness matches Karol's. We visited the Fitz-Randdolph this past weekend and were happy to find such a beautiful inn so close to our... More

Innkeeper Karol admits to being a perfectionist. She is correct. Fitz Randolph House is absolutely beautiful both on the outside and inside. The old 1870s mansion is meticulously restored and exceedingly clean. Wonderful bed with comfortable (expensive) bedding. The breakfast was wonderful; the host attentive. This inn is located just one block away from the historic Carthage jail where Mormon... More

You never know what you are going to get, until you actually see something with your own eyes. This Inn was beyond anything we could have expected. The breakfast was so good, that I don't think I'll ever think of breakfast the same way again. Steve did an amazing job making sure we did not "want" for anything while we... More

This beautiful Victorian Home has been recently restored to its original style with modern amenities. The owner's, Steve and Karol, are the nicest most hospitable people you will ever meet. The breakfast was delicious and homemade. Our room was spacious, clean and relaxing. I slept wonderfully. The beds are comfortable with fully pillows. I will always stay at The "Fitz"... More

We've stayed with Karol and Steve twice and it is just a joy to stay in such a wonderful, lovingly restored home with people who become your friends immediately. If you're traveling through the area, a stop at this wonderfully restored home is advised! The food is wonderful, hospitality cannot be beat and you will sleep beautifully on their wonderfully...
