Highs & Lows

  • The seasonal breakfast—think upside-down fruit cake, fresh beignets, eggs, homemade granola, and a never-ending supply of coffee.

  • The. Bed.

  • Every corner of the property is beautiful.

  • This isn’t a true minus, but you will need a car or a wad of cash for cabs.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Restored 100-year old rustic country inn.

  • Vibe

    Relaxed, rustic, country elegance with a few modern, global trimmings.

  • Location

    Off the grid, but a short drive from loves of yummy food and beautiful walks.

  • Rooms


  • Music

    Self-serve...there is a record player and a large collection of vinyl to choose from.

  • Year Opened


  • Designed By

    Foxfire was lovingly put together to by its owners, Eliza and Tim. Tim is a former chef and also cooks up a delicious and ever-changing array of breakfast every morning for all of the guests.

  • Pool/Gym


  • Restaurant


  • Bar

    Not in the straight-forward sense, but they have a bar for specific occasions - for example, Saturday night's cheese and wine hour.

  • Minibar

    No, but they did leave a bottle of wine out to welcome our arrival.

  • Wifi

    Yes and it's free.

  • Children

    You could bring them, but you'll probably have a better time if you leave them at home.

  • Price

    Moderate and completely worth it considering that breakfast is included every day and that there was wine and cheese on the Saturday evening.

Delicious seasonal food in an old-school roadside diner.
