Fox Hill is my husband’s and my absolute favorite B & B. We live about an hour from Fairfield and try to make it out to Fox Hill at least once a year. Last year we went twice! And, since we were married two years ago, Fox Hill has become our “Anniversary Weekend” destination of choice. We are constantly recommending it to friends and have even brought family to the inn. There are so many factors that contribute to Fox Hill’s excellence. One of these is, of course, Sue and Mark, the innkeepers. They have been so wonderful to us over the years. Sue has conspired with my husband on several occasions to make our Anniversary extra special. Both she and Mark always make excellent dining suggestions. And Mark is truly a grounds-keeper extraordinaire. He does a lovely job with their property, mowing paths through the meadow for everyone’s walking pleasure. Also, we have two dogs who love to stay at Fox Hill. While in the area, we enjoy doing activities that include them. Sue always makes great suggestions about places to hike that are dog friendly (think off-leash merry-making). The dogs are, in fact, another reason why we love Fox Hill so much. This B & B is very dog friendly. While dogs are not permitted in the common areas of the home or in the gardens immediately surrounding it, they are welcomed in the expansive meadows that make up much of the property. More off-leash fun is to be had there. Our dogs LOVE Fox Hill! Another reason why we love Fox Hill is, naturally, the wonderful breakfast. We love Sue’s blueberry muffins. I didn’t even like blueberry muffins until I had Sue’s. The food is fantastic! We’re vegetarians and Sue and Mark have always happily accommodated our dietary wishes. For most of our trips to Fox Hill we stayed in the same room (a sentimental thing I suppose). That room was wonderful—spacious, elegant yet comfortable, and still quite cozy, with a nice fireplace. On our last trip, however, we chose to stay in one of the inn’s cottage suites. Here one cannot be able to partake of the delicious breakfast, but it was worth it for us because we had our own kitchenette and more space for our canine companions. This particular suite, the Heron’s Nest, is located near the horse barn (we love horses, so no problem there) and is not attached to the main house. It has a great covered deck, upon which our hounds loved lounging. It’s location afforded us a little more privacy and ensured that our pups didn’t bother any of the other guests. If you’re not a dog person, don’t worry. Sue and Mark’s doggie policies are pet-friendly but not excessive. They go out of their way to ensure that both canine lovers and non-lovers thoroughly enjoy their stays. The rooms are impeccably clean, so you'll never notice any sign of "dog" (no yucky dog smell or fur in sight, I promise) and, generally speaking the dogs are quite. You might not even notice they're there. Obviously, I could go on and on about this inn. The location is great. It’s in the country, so it’s beautiful and serene. Still, it’s only about 11 miles from historic downtown Lexington, which has a charm all it’s own. There’s even a dog-friendly drive in theatre that operates on the weekends. Fox Hill is a must-stay. Go there. I promise you’ll fall in love.
