The veranda & deck are accessed through French doors in the dining room and sunroom and stretch the entire length of the back of the house. Enjoy the view of the gardens and back yard from a comfy chaise while you read a book or sit at one of the tables and enjoy a glass of Finger Lakes wine while watching the many birds and listening to the fountains. On warm evenings you’ll often find us on the veranda in front of the fire pit where you are welcome to join us. The veranda & deck are your first stop to relaxing in our beautiful, lush, back yard.
The formal living room has been furnished with an array of antiques and modern decor. Lush silk draperies, needlepoint rugs, original artwork, and designer fabrics have been combined with whimsical and fun MacKenzie-Childs furnishings to create an elegant, yet comfortable, setting. The perfect place to sit and chat while enjoying a steaming mug of cocoa & Sally’s chocolate chip cookies in front of the cozy fireplace or a glass of raspberry iced tea & cookies while playing checkers, chess, or backgammon at the game table. Facing the back yard, windows and French doors bank one wall of the room allowing warm afternoon light to softly bathe the room. Relaxing, cozy, peaceful.
Our sunroom is flooded with light from the many windows and the French doors that open onto the veranda and overlook the gardens. Hand painted with a whimsical garden theme, the huge mirror on the opposite wall is a wonderful, light-reflecting accent in the room. A jigsaw puzzle is always being worked on at the garden table in front of the windows where a bench and chair invite you to sit a while and add a piece or two. It’s a great spot to enjoy a first cup of coffee in the morning. You will also find an antique cabinet in the corner, which holds gift items that you might like to take home with you including our handmade olive oil soap, mugs with our logo, our wonderful spa sheets & robes, and much more. Bright, charming, fun.
Formal Dining Room
The dining room at 10 Fitch is a place of beauty & tranquility with brilliantly lined walls dressed in period Thibaut wallpaper. Wonderful, warm light floods this room through windows and French doors overlooking the outside oasis of our back yard & gardens, where the waterfall splashes into the Koi pond and the happy sound of song birds perching in the trees blends with the whisper of the breeze in a natural outdoor symphony. Weather permitting, and with advance notice, you may choose to dine outside on the veranda or deck. In winter, when snow drapes the gardens in a glittering blanket of white, the crackling fire in the fireplace keeps everyone warm & cozy. Soft, instrumental music is always playing, and because we love beautiful things here at 10 Fitch you can expect breakfast to be a feast for your eyes as well as your taste buds starting with the table! Our antique mahogany dining table is set each morning to delight and surprise with a mix of modern, antique, & MacKenzie-Childs table ware. Every morning during your stay at 10 Fitch it will be different. Cheerful, elegant, beautiful.
Tucked away in a corner of the house, our library is one of the coziest rooms at 10 Fitch. Rich wood paneled bookcase walls filled with antique books and other treasures beckon you to come in and settle into the oversized leather armchair next to the fireplace or stretch out on the comfy sofa. Parlor games are hidden away in a cabinet here for you to enjoy. There is also a television discreetly tucked away on a shelf, just in case you might like to catch the news or check the score of the game while on the main floor of the inn. Warm, comfortable, inviting.
