Interaction with Guests
Guests are warmly welcomed by the host who introduces them to Fletcher Tavern with a cup of tea or coffee if they would like. Guests can come and go as they want since they have their own key. There's an embarrassment of riches in terms of places to visit and things to see in the area so guests are usually quickly out the door, taking the opportunity to investigate the abundance of American history and many activities on offer in the Westford area.
Easily accessed via 495, Rts 3 and Rt 2, Fletcher Tavern B&B is set in a traditional, picturesque New England village. An excellent library is just on the other side of the Common, a few steps away. Walking trails are a short walk around the corner ; skiing and a lake are a seven minute drive away. Restaurants and shopping are just down the hill.
A train into Boston is available from Littleton. There is ample parking at the Tavern. Either a limo or a driver will pick guests up at the airport.
Other Things to Note
Guests have access to a sitting room with HD TV, Blu-Ray and Bose Speakers.
The current owner is the fourth great grand-daughter of Timothy Fletcher, who ran the house as a Tavern in the mid-1700s.
Fletcher Tavern is a non-smoking, shoe-less home. Guests who appreciate the beauty of fine things in life are most welcome.
The room, host and the breakfast were all fabulous! It is the best place I've stayed at- from a seasoned traveler.
All aspects were excellent. Great attention to detail; lovely place; warm hospitality; excellent breakfast - quintessential B and B experience
I stayed in Elizabeth's room-with-a-view for two nights as I was in town for my nephew's wedding. The room was just as wonderful as described. A perfect mix of colonial feel with modern amenities. The house is a fantastic testament to its heritage, and the gardens are a beautiful place pull up on a bench and read on a warm afternoon. Breakfasts were not only delicious (and full), but an opportunity for good conversation.
Elizabeth made my first time BnB a very enjoyable and pleasant experience. While staying in the historic house is itself a great memory, the delicious breakfast, the beautiful garden, Tom Paul trail and Elizabeth's care and attention to details made it a wonderful experience.
Thank you very much Elizabeth.
It was very nice to discover a real American home of the 1700. Elizabeth is a very pleasant guest, and it's always a pleasure to have breakfast with hem. Even the town of Westford is beautiful and nearby you can have a picnic on the beach of a quiet lake. Recommended.
Thank you for your positive feedback, Roberto! Indeed, it was lovely to have you here, open as you were to exploring aspects of Colonial times (including your having a picnic on Forge Pond, a 'one square mile' in Westford that was considered sacred by the Indians who lived here long ago) as well as your being interested in new developments.
Elisabeth is such a wonderful host with style, patience and the best breakfast! The house is very beautiful, bathroom is big as a room. Neighborhood is very quiet and nice.
Lovely guests! Loved your high energy and enthusiasm in regard to Fletcher Tavern! I look forward to your return, when you have more time to 'hang out' and take a real holiday. Hopefully by then the Tavern will have a birch bark canoe for you to use at Forge Pond!
What a wonderful layover on our way to Maine!! Elizabeth couldn't have been more accommodating! We arrived very late, but she still had tea and snacks waiting for us. She also made some good recommendations close by for a late bite and drink. The room was lovely and the ensuite bathroom with heated toilet seat was a pleasant surprise. The house is beautiful and full of interesting antiques. Breakfast was a full-on REAL English breakfast!! We followed the wonderful aroma of bacon and yummies downstairs to a beautiful breakfast table! Fresh fruit and cream, eggs, home fries, beans, bacon, maple sausage, mushrooms, oh my! Absolutely scrumptious, there wasn't a scrap left on my plate! Although it was already getting cold out, her garden was still bursting with colorful dahlias and other garden beauties. Elizabeth is a lovely host and wonderful to chat with! What a great find!

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.
