Four amazing new venues have recently joined the Fields of Gold Farm Trail and we couldn’t be happier to have them!
Meet Fox Hill Bed & Breakfast Suites, a magical place to get away! This a 38-acre countryside Bed & Breakfast retreat located midway between the Shenandoah Valley cities of Staunton and Lexington offers either B&B Suites or Kitchen Suites. They invite you to unwind and envelope yourself in the beauty and peace their lovely on farm lodging establishment has to offer. Enjoy beautiful mountain views while you delight in a 3 course breakfast. Their grounds provide endless opportunities to commune with nature: stroll in the shade along their spring-fed stream, watch a Blue Heron fish for dinner in our two-tier garden pond and wander in their lovely gardens. When you are ready for more activity, you can romp in our meadows and walking trails with your favorite companions: Fox Hill Bed & Breakfast Suites has been recognized as a favorite pet friendly “doggie destination” in the Shenandoah Valley by Hampton Roads Magazine. We also have received a 5 bones rating at Bring Fido!
A new addition at Fox Hill is a picnic area under a stand of Eastern Red Cedar trees. They invite guests to use the gas grill and picnic tables to cook out while staying at the B&B. For more info or to book your stay: www.foxhillbb.com.
