“Not so great!”
Reviewed 15 October 2010

My wife & I read the reviews on this site and the inn website and reserved two nights in the nicest suite to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. Unfortunately, the room we found on arrival was not nearly so nice as the pictures led us to believe. The furniture was old and the rooms dark. To make it worse, the innkeeper wasn't prepared for our arrival. The front door wasn't answered and walking through the back had to pass piles of laundry to find our room. When I expressed that we wouldn't be staying, the innkeeper was rude and refused to refund our $50 deposit. Needless to say, we won't be returning!

Hello, to respond to you review, I am so glad you found someplace that made you happy that day.

But, you were correct the curtains were closed, therefore dark, and the room was decorated in beautiful antiques, therefore old . . . but completely ready and clean for you with a large just made fresh flower arrangement. Unfortunately, wedding guests had a flat tire which added to the confusion as I was outside helping them and not answering the front door. I have no idea where the piles of laundry were, except the one at the basement steps, dropped to go outside.

I always allow guests to arrive when convenient for them, at your1:00 pm arrival instead of 3 to 6:00pm, it was unforunate for my previous guests to still be there worried about car problems.

I strive for guests to be happy and well informed of the area, of events and where the best restuarants are to dine, I am sorry to not experience that with and for you. Marguerite

We enjoyed our 1 - week -stay in this charming old house with the friendly and heartly innkeeper Marguerite. The breakfast was delicious - and never the same within a week.
We were offered wine and snacks in the evening or afternoon and felt perfectly at home.
The garden & lawn is extremly large, beautyful - you can sit by the water, relax, read and have glass of wine. We had - together with an other couple - the 2 rooms in the upper
floor.Indeed both rooms were more or less appartments, consisting of 2 rooms each so
there is enough space. Thank you, Marguerite, for this experience on Chesapeeke Bay!

We stayed for the weekend, we when arrived we were greeted right away, checked in and were offered some wine and cheese, we sat out by the water overlooking the bay enjoying the wine and cheese. The rooms were very comfortable, very quiet. First time in Northern Neck, awesome area and will return and stay here again

Fleeton Fields is a delightful place. The rooms are nice, we stayed in the Tidal Marsh room, and though our bathroom was across the hall, it was private. We also had a separate sitting area, so lots of room, and never felt hemmed in. The grounds are well maintained, and a delightful place to sit. The host, Maurgerite, is very knowledgable about the area, and can help with dinner reservations etc.

We ate at a great local deli -- Cockrell's, and at the Crazy Crab.

All three rooms were booked while we were there, so quite popular. Breakfasts were nice. Though at the table several did have to sit off to one side due to the legs of the table, but antiques will do that to you.

If you are a kayaker, the Cockrell Creek is a wonderful place to paddle. We spent all day on the water on a Saturday.

We will be back.

Reviewed 31 January 2009

Our stay in Dec was great. Our host, the owner, seemed very gracious and welcoming, the house and grounds were beautiful, breakfast was delicious, and most importantly for us, it was a pet friendly B&B. The reason we won't return is that almost exactly one month later we received a call from the owner asking us when we were planning to arrive for the evening. When I tried to explain we had not reserved a room, and that it was obviously a scheduling error on her part, she became belligerent and accused me of lying. Needless to say, we will not be returning to Fleeton Fields which is unfortunate because it really is a beautiful area.

This response is in 2012, I have never rsponded to a review before. I am so sorry for the confusion, b&b owners do not just write reservations arbitarily in our books, and the misunderstanding was obviously completely mine. I hope you will be forgiving and might come again in the future. Thank you, Marguerite
