If waking up to the sound of birds instead of highway traffic is what you are looking for, then the Fitch Hill Inn is the bed and breakfast for you.
Our circa 1797 Vermont Federal farmhouse sits on a three-and-a-half acre hilltop over a quarter-mile from Highways 15 and 100, so peace and quiet prevail. Enjoy the magnificent views of the Green Mountains from the wicker chairs on the front porch or the swing on the front lawn.
Relax on one of the decks with views of the beautiful gardens and woods or take a walk through those woods.
For those who want to do something other than just relax and unwind, there are dozens of choices within a half-hour's drive. Lamoille County offers some of the best downhill and cross country skiing in the east at places like Stowe Mountain and Smuggler's Notch. It also has some of the best fishing, canoeing and kayaking on the Lamoille River, Lake Elmore and the Green River Reservoir. Hiking and snowshoeing opportunities abound and there are 3 golf courses within 20 miles for the golf enthusiast.
If you're a fan of covered bridges, Lamoille County has the largest collection still standing in Vermont. If food or drink is your passion, Cabot Creamery, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream, Cold Hollow Cider Mill and Boyden Valley Winery all offer tours and/or tastings. Like antiques? There are a dozen or more shops and malls in the area with a wide selection of merchandise and prices. For those of you whose interests lean toward the arts, both Hyde Park and Stowe (which is only a 15-minute drive away) have summer theater productions. Stowe also has numerous concerts featuring all types of music throughout the summer and art galleries give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the visual arts year-round.
When you are done exploring the area for the day, return to the Fitch Hill Inn for some refreshments while you plan where to dine that evening. Use the menus collected from many local restaurants to help you make this decision, made difficult by the numerous outstanding choices in and around Stowe!
If the sound of the birds doesn't waken you, perhaps the smell of Green Mountain Coffee brewing or homemade muffins baking will!
A full hot breakfast consisting of fresh fruit, homemade muffins or sweet breads, a main course such Stuffed French Toast or John's Savory Egg Casserole, fruit juice and coffee, tea, or hot cocoa is served in our dining room or on the deck (weather permitting, of course).
Let us know if you have any special breakfast requests or dietary needs. We will be happy to accommodate them. Our goal is for no guest to leave the breakfast table hungry!
No matter what time of year or what your interests, Lamoille County, Vermont, offers a great getaway. And hosts Julie and John Rohleder will make your stay at the Fitch Hill Inn one of the highlights of your trip to this beautiful corner of the world.
Breakfast is part of our name, so we want it to be as memorable as the rest of your stay, and since breakfasts are as different from B&B to B&B as the decor, we thought we would tell you about ours.
First, we serve at a time convenient to you, the guest, at any time between 7 AM & 10 AM. That way you can get up and start your day or sleep in and relax. Need to be up early to travel? We can set you up with coffee or tea and some muffins to get you started. Just let us know the morning before!
We want you to enjoy your breakfast, so we'll ask you about what you like and if there is anything you can't eat. Whether it is an allergy, diabetes, or gluten-intolerance, we have options available. We are also happy to do vegetarian or vegan breakfasts, and we can accommodate our kosher guests, too.
Breakfast starts off with fresh from scratch muffins, coffee, tea, and juice. Next, a fruit course such as Cinnamon Cooked Apples or Baked Pears with Raspberry Sauce and Vanilla Yogurt gives you a healthy start. Then a main course such as Stuffed French Toast with Blueberry Sauce or John's Savory Egg Casserole.
