“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We stayed 4 nights xmas week and it exceeded our expectations. I’m writing this in detail b/c it was so much fun to stay there it’s worth my while to write about. We were greeted with a warm crackling fire, hot tea or cider and homemade cookies. The whole house was festively decorated inside and out. The house itself is originally from the late 1700’s so it’s quite the treat to look at. There were two rooms for sitting; besides the one which greeted us, another one had reading material, DVD’s and music CD’s to choose from and an assortment of games. Once upstairs there was a kitchenette area with teas, hot water, a Krugric coffee maker, cold bottled water and a frig and microwave. A computer was in the hall for general use (although my husband said it was slower than the one we brought), extra towels and cute battery lighted candles that really looked real. The room was very nice, with a new wall TV which played DVD’s or CD’s. Very clean. Complimentary toiletries. Little carafe of sherry with two delicate glasses. Breakfast was fabulous. Each morning started with fresh muffins/biscuits and really good coffee. (I bought some of the coffee/tea mugs b/c they were so cute) Then some kind of fruit but tastefully presented; everything was presented with that extra flair! Then came the main serving that always included some protein unless you didn’t want it. One day was pumpkin and banana pancakes with sausage, another day was French toast filled with cream cheese and blueberry compote on top and real maple syrup. They said they would accommodate any dietary preferences but we liked everything. We found the hosts to be professional but funny and witty. They both seem like very hard workers and very serious about providing the best service possible; we were always impressed by their attention to detail. Christmas day they left us a present in the room which was just so thoughtful. We would stay again for sure but after seeing the downstairs suite, we would spend the extra money to stay in that room…really nice looking.

Room Tip: suites look very spacious and in hindsight, worth the extra money when we book again

We arrived rather late in the afternoon to discover a plate of cookies and a cozy wood stove waiting for us.

Our room was tidy and spacious. The jet tub and gas fireplace were fabulous after our frigid hike up and slide down Mt. Mansfield!

I have to eat gluten and whey-free, and I have never had such a delicious breakfast at any of the numerous inns at which I have stayed.

This B&B is perfect!!!

My husband & I spent three very enjoyable nights at the Fitch Hill Inn.

The home itself couldn't be more charming - 200+ years old and decorated just as you would expect, and our room was toasty warm despite the arctic blast that brought temps to -9 degrees one morning around Thanksgiving.

The inn keepers are welcoming, chatty & sweet - they helped us find a restaurant in Stowe & encouraged us to grab videos from their huge library of the best old school movies (awesome).

Breakfast was copious & delicious, as were the hot cider & cookies available at the entrance around the clock.

Highly recommended !

Room Tip: Get a suite if you can - it's a few extra bucks but worth it for the extra space & microwave...

Very historic inn, and well kept. Lovely room and bath, and very comfortable. Hosts were very, very accomodating, and breakfast was just wonderful including homemade bread and egg casserole. Highly recommend this b & b.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fitch Hill Inn. The accommodations we very clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and healthy and the owners were friendly and very easy to talk to. We found the scenery nearby to be very beautiful, especially at the height of the Fall season.

This was our first visit to the Fitch Hill Inn. If we ever find ourselves returning to Vermont, we would definitely stay here again. Julie and John were both warm and friendly. Conversations with them were always interesting, engaging, and informative.

The rooms are impeccable. We were particularly impressed with the chocolates, bottled water, and sherry (!) in the rooms for no extra charge. The cookies in the living room were an equal delight. Each room has a 3-ring binder with tons of information about the area. We followed the directions for the covered bridge tour and found the directions to be precise and accurate (very helpful since we do not travel with a navigation system).

John is an excellent woodworker. Be sure to ask him about the main table and other things he's built at the inn. Julie made each bed quilt and they are lovely.

The breakfasts were outstanding. Margie fell in love with the banana pumpkin pancakes and bought the "Stitchin' in the Kitchaen" cookbook containing Julie's recipe.

This was our first time staying at the Inn and if we are ever in the Hyde Park area would not hesitate to stay there again. John and Julie were very hospitable and went out of her way to accommodate any request we made. We have styed at other B&B's, but have never had a host provide extra's like Fitch Hill does. Bottled water, Coffee, razors, toothbrushes, cookies, all available without asking. In addition Julie keeps the place sparkling clean. Definitely a very pleasant experience.
