Carleton-Willard's David Fitch Guest House is an historic inn located just across the street from the Village's main entrance.


The David Fitch House extends a warm welcome to residents’ friends, children, and grandchildren. It’s also a delightful home base for prospective residents who want to spend a day or two getting a feel for Village life.

The rooms (two with twin beds and three with queen beds) are named and decorated to reflect the splendor of Village gardens, surrounding travelers in floral hues and classic furnishings. Queen rooms have adjacent private baths; a private bath for each twin room is located just down the hall. Here, you and your family can spend quiet time in the living room, enjoy a game of cards in the game room, or gather around the dining room table. In the kitchen, beverages (coffee, tea, and juices) are always available, and the refrigerator and microwave are for guest use.

A stay at the Fitch House comes with jitney service throughout the Village, a standing invitation to our Brass Rail, Abbott Room and Victoria Café, and admission to all Village amenities and activities (except those requiring prior registration). WiFi access is available throughout the house.

For guests’ safety and convenience, the house includes an elevator, medical alert communicators in every chamber room and bathroom, and additional alert stations in several common areas. In keeping with Village policy, the David Fitch Guest House is a smoke-free environment.

Our family has stayed countless times at the Fitch House when we visit my mother. It always seems like a mini vacation, couldn’t be more convenient, and my mother doesn’t feel like we are all crowding in on her. I like getting up and using the kitchen to make coffee, and being able to just walk across the street for meals.
