“Attractive and Relaxing”
Reviewed 29 July 2006

A hiking buddy and I stayed here for one night as part of an inn-to-inn travel package. Fox Creek Inn is a very pretty old place -- sort of out of the way, but still convenient to many of the area's attractions. The common indoor areas are quite attractive. Our room, one of the cheaper ones, was okay but not exceptional; I wouldn't say it had really been "decorated." The innkeeper, Alex, is extremely friendly and helpful and gives the impression that he'll do just about anything to make your stay a memorable one. The inn's two golden retrievers are happy to play with you if you want, and happily leave you alone if you don't. Dinner was delicious, as was breakfast. Couples are seated with other couples -- nice for sociable types, possibly not if you don't want company. I suppose you could ask for a private table if you really wanted one. My only nitpick is the pre-dinner wine. We had just come from a B&B that served free wine before dinner, and the wine here was offered without any indication that it would cost extra .... but it did. Maybe there was an explanation that we missed. But anyway, that's just a small gripe. As to amenities at this inn, there aren't a ton. Other inns we visited had swimming or tennis or shuffleboard or hiking trails or fishing on site; this didn't. But if you want a quiet, peaceful place where you can relax, you'll love Fox Creek.

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Fox Creek Inn. It was very relaxing. Alex and his wife Ann were helpful and the most gracious inn keepers you would want to meet. They went out of their way to make each guest's stay the best it could be. The food was excellent. We had the MAP plan which was a great deal. All the guest were friendly-being from various parts of the country and world. Even though it rained our weekend was most enjoyable and carefree.

Reviewed 26 September 2004

We stayed at this charming inn during September. It is about 20 minutes from Rutland and 45 minutes from Woodstock, VT and is in a rather remote area. We had room 4 which was a corner room with a king bed. It had a huge bathroom with a one person jacuzzi and two sinks. Alex, the inn keeper, was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was nice but not elegant. It has two chairs and a gas log fireplace.

The inn offers dinner with a choice of 3 entrees. We decided to eat in Rutland instead, but I think we would have been happy with the dinner at the inn. As there were 4 of us, we were concerned that we would overwhelm the small dining room which had only 4 tables, and might ruin the evening for the other couples who were staying there.

I would highly recommend the inn for those who want a rather remote location. It is rather close to the Killington ski area so it might be desirable for those who like to ski. But Rutland had really nothing of interest to us, yet we were too far from Woodstock or other areas more of interest to tourists.
