We spent three nights in June (for our anniversary) at Fox Hill B&B. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. It's a large newer house, built to be a B&B, so there are private entrances. We stayed in the Cornwall, an upstairs room with a lovely view of farmland.
We contacted the innkeepers ahead of time about dietary needs, and they were kind enough to oblige. Mark was our host for the first two days because Sue was out of town. I know he was working hard, but he made it seem effortless. He is a gracious host, and cooked us wonderful breakfasts.
The room was well-appointed, with fridge, TV (which we only used to check the weather), hairdryer, and many other amenities. The AC was quiet and the bed comfortabe.There were small brownies waiting for us on our arrival.
The grounds are lovely, and we particularly appreciated Mark keeping paths mowed through the hay fields - we took a couple of long walks on the premises. There's a nice creek with a small waterfall. They also have a pond, and frogs (which play a significant part in the inn decor) can be heard frequently in the evening.
Mark was available for advice about restaurants and hiking (although Sue is the real hiker, and had good information for us when she returned.) Having done the "tourist" bit in Lexington on a previous trip we were there this time to hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and hike we did. (We recommend White Rock Falls and Crabtree Falls, if you're in reasonably good shape!) Fairfield's location makes it perfect for being in close proximity to hiking, but also close to Lexington and Staunton for restaurants (if you like fresh & eclectic, try the Red Hen in Lexington) and history.
In short, it was the perfect vacation spot. We felt welcomed and pampered, and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. One of our best B&B experiences ever!
