Interaction with Guests
I delight in welcoming guests on their arrival with a cup of coffee or tea and warm home made cookies whilst we sit in the patio room. I am also available for sitting and chatting during a delicious breakfast after guests have been served!
In winter, guests can clearly see Westford Common, plus a traditional church with a steeple, from the front rooms of the Tavern. In summer, the gardens are a pure delight, full of colour, in the English tradition.
Although the Tavern is located in Westford Centre (by the excellent Library, the police and fire stations, plus the Rodenbush Community Centre) there is (unfortunately!) no local transportation to get guests to the business area a mile down the hill, and there are no sidewalks to enable guests to walk there.
There are walking trails close at hand, at least one of which can be accessed by a sidewalk. You can walk to a local pizza restaurant which is on Main Street. Bottom line is that you'll be happiest if you have a car to use whilst you're staying at the Tavern!
The Fitchburg-South Acton Line of the MBTA Commuter Rail Service can get you to Boston. These trains stop in Littleton which is only a ten minute drive away from the Tavern.
Other Things to Note
This is a lovely part of New England! There is much to do and, at the same time, the Tavern gives you a unique place to hang out, harkening back to a gentler era.
Fletcher Tavern is a 'shoe-less house' so please bring your comfortable slippers and/or socks. We request 'no smoking'. Thank you.

The householder lead us to a room which decorates with many things with Chinese element. We felt like home here
Elizabeth was a great host, she welcomed us warmly even though we arrived pretty late at night and her rooms are all just lovely and somewhat magical. Her breakfast is one of the best I have ever had and even though we had to get up too early for her to freshly prepare breakfast, she put fruits and cake out for us to eat when we get up. She also made us cookies once with a lovely note during the day which really cheered us up! If you're in the area, this is definitely the best places to go to, except if you have a person with disabilities in your party - it is not accessible for handicapped.
Elizabeth was an amazing host- well felt welcomed and comfortable as soon as we stepped foot into the tavern, and were greated with tea and cookies in a warm, cozy environment. She knew the area extremely well and was nice enough to recommend local attractions and places to eat, all information that also appeared on pamphlets that were conveniently located in our rooms. The tavern was both clean and beautiful- a worthwhile destination in and of itself. The entire place was magical, and each room had it's own charm. I mentioned to my friends how wonderful it would be for a family to spend Christmas at the Fletcher Tavern. One room has a beautiful view of the downtown area complete with a giant decorated tree. Elizabeth was also kind enough to let me take photos in the tavern- it was so beautiful, how could one not? The entire place is a photograher's dream (or anyone who is interested in historical buildings, for that matter).
All of our needs were met above and beyond. Our breakfast in the morning was delicious, and once again we shared more great conversation with Elizabeth, who was gracious and thoughtful throughout our stay.
I can't say enough about how great our stay was- Thank you!
Ah, Karen! What generous feedback you've given to this wonderful place! Thank you so much. I agree that the Tavern is a very special place indeed to visit at any time, and, yes, in particular at Christmas! I'm delighted that you noticed that! Meanwhile, I can envision that all hosts would give you a warm welcome as you were the quintessential perfect guest!
I had a very nice time. A gracious host, a beautifully cared for home that is quiet and comfortable. The flower garden in the back might keep you from leaving too soon. A cookie at mid-day was a favorite. Comfortable feather bed and walking into the main old town square had a farmers market. Pleasant and relaxing experience. Clean and quiet.
We had a good stay in this historic tavern. We prefer the vibrant , colorful yard where we enjoyed the beautiful English breakfast cooked by hospitable chef.
Thank you, Elizabeth. Welcome to visit China again!
Our stay at the Tavern was delightful. We were thrilled that Elizabeth could be so accommodating at the last minute to provide 2 rooms and a sitting room for the two couples visiting the area. Elizabeth was terrific in acknowledging my overbooking and recognized she should and did refund the cost of the room I didn't need. The rooms were charming. The spread of snacks in the sitting room were more than expected (fruit, cheese, crackers, tea, coffee, juices, trail mix, and nuts) and for that we were grateful. Sitting in the garden room and walking through the gardens were quite peaceful. It was enjoyable to chat with our host Elizabeth. We would recommend a stay and visit again.
Thank you, Judy, for your heart-warming feedback! The four of you were much appreciated guests. The full English Breakfast that you took note of, is one of the hallmarks of the Tavern. When guests stay for more than one or two nights, I am delighted to offer an alternative breakfast menu (partially described on the Tavern website). All are equally scrumptious, freshly made meals (i.e., not frozen)! It would take more hands than I have available, to be able to offer more than one menu per meal. I suppose the Tavern follows the European tradition of Prix Fixe which can include one menu selection for a fixed price? I prefer this to the 'help yourself' cold breakfasts that some B&Bs offer.
I look forward to sharing the hospitality of Fletcher Tavern with you when you pass this way again!
Excellent location for me in a beautiful old tavern with wonderful rooms. The wedding suite with the four poster bed and champagne bubble bath was very cool.
My son and I stayed in the Suite, wonderfully appointed, as is the whole house. When we arrived on Valentines day Elizabeth had set out an afternoon tea set and chilled a bottle of Proseco. a great touch. This was also laid out each day we returned from skiing (minus the bubbly) and included teas, coffees, cheese and fruit.
The breakfast was a full English breakfast bacon sausage,egg beans and all the trimmings including fried bread.
You need to know the entrance is on the Boston Road not the listed address as it is on a sharp corner. I missed the garage netrance more than once.
Thank you so much, Bunji, for selecting Fletcher Tavern for your abode over three days. I appreciated your high energy and your keen interest in life! As follow-up this is a lovely Review! Meanwhile, I plan to incorporate ideas that you suggested. I am currently washing the sweatpants left behind and will mail them to you by the end of the week.

About the Host, Elizabeth Fletcher
How to describe me, your primary host? Enthusiastic and wanting to 'know'....so MANY things! Born in Texas, initially I was a classical musician (pianist), then teacher in Special Needs, then Clinical Psychologist, with each step leading in some way to the next. I have long yearned to know more and, looking back, I can easily see how that yearning has taken me into so many not necessarily planned experiences! I recognised some time ago that Carl Jung offered a 'lens' for me to better understand the world we live in. And then I traveled considerably (including living and working in Tuva at the Centre for Traditional Folk Medicine for five months over a winter), plus I lived and worked in the UK and then Ireland for a total of 16 years - with a year's Sabbatical tucked in there, too, giving me opportunity to get to know more of the world. I stayed in many a B&B over the years, including in Patmos (where God dictated Revelations to John), in the Lake District, in Edinburgh... I love cooking so preparing a scrumptious breakfast for guests to start them on their way for the day, is a delight. Gardening is another love of mine - along with classical and also folk music. Actually both first and last (but not least!), I enjoy good conversation! I returned to America on 27th January 2013, starting a new volume in my life that has started with opening Fletcher Tavern (the home of some of my ancestors) as a B&B.
