Fitch Hill Inn
Ranked #1 of 2 Hyde Park B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2010

We found the Inn by accident but were so glad we did! It's about an hour drive from Burlington (near Stowe) but what a beautiful drive! That's what Vermont is all about - the forests, rivers, farms, small towns... The Inn itself is a historic preservation at its best - beautifully and authentically decorated (wall paper, hardwood floors, quilts, etc.) - it was a very special place to stay. The hosts are wonderful - the breakfast was unique and very good, there is always hot tea or hot cider with cookies (we are coming back in the winter to try that after a day of skiing!). Thank you John and Julie for such a wonderful stay!

If you are looking for a place that is close enough to everything that it is convenient, yet far enough from the hubbub to be relaxing, then Fitch Hill Inn is the place to stay. I really liked it for its "real Vermont" feel. I wasn't surrounded by tourists, yet a short drive got me to hiking, restaurants, attractions and other vacation activities. Very comfy place. Great beds. Clean, clean rooms, and wonderful hosts who were helpful in every way. Fitch Hill Inn is a definite winner.

Like other reviewers, we had a very positive stay. We've stayed in B&Bs both here in the states as well as Europe, and I can honestly say that Julie and John run one of the nicest B&B's I've experienced. We had a warm and friendly welcome, comfortable room in a tastefully decorated home, and a scrumptious breakfast - all at an affordable price.

We went skiing in Stowe, but didn't want to stay at one of the large ski resorts. The Fitch Hill Inn was an amazing find just 20 minutes outside of Stowe. It has all the charm of an 18th century home, with all the modern amenities you could ask for. Julie and John were wonderfully hospitable hosts. After a long day of skiing, there were always freshly baked cookies and hot apple cider waiting for us. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! The restaurants they recommended in the area far exceeded anything we had tried in Stowe proper. We really had a wonderful time - I hope we get to go back soon!

The Fitch Hill Inn is a very nice place to stay. We have stayed at the Inn a couple of times and have been overall satisfied both times. It's really the extra special attention to detail that sets them apart from the rest. From the warm cookies & cider upon arrival to the room equiped with all the little extras, they truely go above and beyond to please their guest. The only draw back for us would be that we perfer less conversation at breakfast. Please don't get me wrong, the owners are very polite & friendly, just a little to chatty for us.

We found this gem of an inn quite by accident but what a find. The hosts, Julie and John, are warm and knowledgeable and provide the most exquisite breakfasts you will have anywhere. Everything is freshly made every day, always different and totally delicious. The rooms are beautifully decorated and the jacuzzi we had was great, as was the popcorn! Next time we are in Vermont, this will be the place we stay, no question!

What a thoroughly delightful place to stay! I made a last-minute reservation for a single night over the weekend and I only wish I could have stayed longer. The rooms are quiet, comfortable and immaculately clean and the hosts, Julie and John, are obviously committed to making every guest's stay special. They leave a much appreciated pot of coffee on a table near the rooms for those of us who simply can't face breakfast before that first cup. The (included) breakfast is much better than anything you'll find at a local eatery. Ours started with fresh muffins and a baked pear with yogurt and raspberry sauce. Then came the french toast stuffed with maple flavored cream cheese, covered with a wonderful blueberry sauce and fresh, crisp bacon. Absolutely delicious!

The weather during my short stay was rainy, but I would have loved to spend time walking through the beautiful garden area and, perhaps, finding a nice, quiet place to sit and read. I'll definitely return to this place...and bring a book.
