Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Mark and Sue Erwin for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
A peaceful, relaxing break from the stresses of daily life
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?
Quiet, fresh air and awesome mountain views. Our rooms are very large, immaculately clean and all but one have direct outside entrances -so we offer a lot of privacy for our guests. I love our grounds -- every day I walk our dog, Ellie, around the gardens and meandering paths while soaking up the views. Our favorite walk is along our spring-fed stream with a private deck right by the small waterfall.
If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?
The nearest towns are Lexington (13 miles south) and Staunton (20 miles north): both beautiful and historic with lots of attractions, great restaurants and shops.
What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?
The wonderful service and experience we provide for our guests. We strive to be helpful and available without being intrusive.
What’s the best kept secret about the area?
Hidden waterfalls and fantastic dining (no one expects such great food in small towns).
If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?
Explore the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway - by car, bicycle, motorcycle or by hiking one of the hundreds of trails. Tour the streets of Lexington by foot or via horse-drawn carriage. Get your history fix at Robert E. Lee Chapel & Museum and The Stonewall Jackson House. In Staunton, take in a play at the Blackfriar's Theater. Tour and taste wine at several local vineyards, and take a walk under Natural Bridge. The Virginia Safari Park is always lots of fun.
Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?
Walking paths and trails, and the horses (Cody & Doc) and donkey (Bug) at the barn always welcome visitors.
What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?
Bistro on Main, Cafe Michel, The Southern Inn and Osceola Mill
Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference? How many rooms does your inn have?
We have six: 3 B&B Suites and 3 Cottage Suites.
Do you accept pets?
Yes, dogs are welcomed with advance notice and we provide lots of suggestions for pet-friendly activities. A guest and doggie favorite is a weekend double-feature at Hull's Drive-In Theatre (ask for the extra-large popcorn so you can share). Right here at Fox Hill we have 38 acres with walking trails through the fields, and a large mowed play area for games of frisbee and fetch ball. Please check our website for specific requests regarding visiting canines.
