Very polite owner, beautiful house. Breakfast was good! Did not sleep very well-the mattress was very springy and dug into my back, woke up with bruises. It was pretty pricey too, ended up paying over a $1000 for four nights.

My partner and I choose to host our wedding at The Fitch House and the it couldn’t have gone any better. The owners are amazing and helpful at every step. I cannot recommend this wonderful bed and breakfast enough. The rooms are gorgeous and very comfortable. The hosts were very accommodating and conscientious about safety with Covid 19. The breakfast was amazing, with ingredients pulled from their garden, and we definitely plan on staying their again.

I chose The Fitch House as a weekend getaway for my wife's birthday. It was absolutely a great stay and I highly recommend both the place and the owners, Mia and Glen. It was a fantastic stay. The house is beautifully appointed in period decor, with quiet reading areas, tables to play games or do puzzles, and a beautiful sunroom built as a yoga studio. There is a bistro setup in the corner of the lawn in a shady spot, and the breakfast is served on the patio with beautiful views of the grounds. We saw two baby squirrels that kept checking on us in a nearby tree. Mia and Glen are both very friendly and Mia was extremely helpful with dining recommendations. There are trails that leave right from the back of the property, and lots of local places to explore. Diana's Pool was a really cool spot to take a dip, and the flea market at the drive in on Sunday was fun too. The breakfasts were amazing and really crafted with love. French press coffee, greek yogurt, late season berries and peaches from their own property with a drizzle of local honey. Then, foraged chicken of the woods mushroom, a roasted red pepper and herb quiche, smoked salmon, and cheddar scallion biscuits. (That was all one breakfast) Definitely recommend this hidden gem!

The Fitch House is a beautiful BnB. Mia takes great care of her guests. Her attention to detail makes for an amazing experience. The home is like stepping back in time and extremely well maintained. I would highly recommend staying here. I travel a lot for work and I always book this BnB when I am in the area. Breakfast is mouth watering and she accommodates for allergies. Lots of outdoor activities nearby as well.

We were so happy we found Fitch House online and were able to book a two-night stay. The historic home is beautiful inside and out and Mia is a responsive, thoughtful and detailed host. She asked if we had any food allergies or preferences and I sent a list of things we did and didn't eat. I thought she would just pick a couple of things to work with but she prepared a breakfast for us that was beyond amazing and hit everything on the list I'd sent. The rooms were very comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. We truly look forward to coming back for another stay (hopefully longer next time) and highly recommend The Fitch House to anyone visiting the area.

We had our wedding at the Fitch House. My husband and I, and both sets of our parents stayed at the Fitch House from Friday until Sunday. Our wedding guests loved the inn and have continued to tell us how much they loved the place. Mia is an excellent host--she put in a great deal of effort to help us coordinate our event. Her homemade, locally sourced breakfasts were a highlight of the stay for our families, as was the lovely Fitch House itself. Getting to spend time in such a beautifully kept historic residence was such a joy. I highly recommend the Fitch House as a B&B as well as an event space.

Feeling grounded & restored after a weekend of yoga, healthy, locally-sourced food, cooking classes and wonderful company. A beautiful inn with comfortable accommodations and charming decor and a host & hostess that exude warmth! Will find my way back to this historic, magical gem of a place!
