Fairlawn Inn review

4.0 on October 01, 2014

Chuck the Innkeeper is fantastic! Chuck was very responsive and he provided great recommendations! We look forward to returning soon.

Absolutely Perfect

5 on September 24, 2014

The rooms are beautiful and clean. The attention to detail is amazing. The keeper was wonderful. I can't wait to go back.

Our overnight in Hunter at the Fairlawn Inn

5 on September 10, 2014

The inn was beautiful. Chuck does a wonderful job at maintaining the yards and landscaping, and the inside was absolutely beautiful. We could only stay one night on our weekend away, and the Fairlawn Inn was the only B&B that we allow us to stay the one night. We are so glad that we stayed there. We would recommend the Inn to anyone and everyone. Chuck also made a really good breakfast. Four thumbs up.

Best B&B in Hunter Mountain

5 on August 24, 2014

This is by far the best B&B I have ever stayed in. I have been going there for years and Chuck always makes you feel welcome and I always feel like I'm at home when I'm there. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely decorated along with the rest of the house. We had a great time sitting on patio around the fire pit with the delicious snacks not to mention the awesome breakfasts the next morning! A definite place to stay if you want a retreat in the mountains.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks you for your kind words. We appreciate your feelings that you feel like you are home. The patio, the fire pit and gardens are a nice place to relax. I love to cook and also appreciate the commentary on the breakfast. We look forward to your return soon!


5 on August 24, 2014

We have been staying at the Fairlawn Inn for 12 years or so, it is always a pleasure and a treat to see what changes Chuck has made. He is a wonderful host and we look forward to seeing him each and every year we are there!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks to this reviewer, we value every guest that visits but especially those that return often. It is also a treat to see their reaction when they have been gone a few years and notice the upgrades and changes. We work on constantly updating the inn to keep it fresh and new and also work on trying to keep up with technology, so important today with all of our technology. Thanks for the comments and we look forward to seeing you soon.

An unique, eclectic, comfortable to stay.

4.4 on August 21, 2014

This home has many different rooms to relax in or play games in, a patio with comfy chairs and a fire pit to sit around and meet new people, a dining room decorated with various antiques and the bedroom was nicely decorated with a large bathroom attached. The innkeeper was accomodating and the breakfast served was magnificent. We would definitely stay there again.


3.4 on August 21, 2014

We stayed in rose room and the ceiling light is annoying since it does not turn fully off. Everything else about the inn was pleasant and enjoyable.

Innkeeper Response
We are glad this guest enjoyed their time here at the Fairlawn. The Sola-tube skylights have been recently added,they not only bring in natural light in a dark room but also function with LED lights to light the room at night with an eye to our green rating. We currently provide sleeping masks but in the next week they will be updated with dimmers to allow guests to shut the sky light and darken the room. On occasion we do projects to add to our green eco-tourism ratings and we thought this to be a good addition. We are updating them so this will not be an issue in the future. We appreciate the feedback from this guest and apologize for the inconvenience.

A wonderful place!

My boyfriend and I booked the Mt. Dew room for 2 nights on 4th of July weekend and had a wonderful time in the area. Had a late check-in the first night and Chuck was happy to coordinate it with us. Breakfasts were both wonderful; the goat cheese omelet is so so good. Everything is eco-friendly which we really appreciated. We will definitely be back!

wish we stayed longer

4.6 on August 03, 2014

Although we were only staying for 1 night, we had a great stay. The room was just as advertised, very quiet, which is what we wanted since my husband had to sleep in for the morning, since he was working the night shift. We were in the Mt Dew room, which was perfect for our needs. The breakfast in the morning what fantastic. Chuck was very pleasant and had several dinner recommendations. He was also very accommodating with letting us check out a little late, so that my husband can sleep in a little longer. Again, even though we only stayed in Hunter for 1 night, I would come back to the Fairlawn Inn and recommend it to others. There is a great little patio area that i look forward to relaxing and reading a good book in, on my next visit up.

Nice getaway.

3.4 on July 16, 2014

Nice getaway, very peaceful. Not much to do in Hunter, but restful. Don't pick a room near the front of the house if you are a light sleeper. The road noise can be loud at times. Chuck is a great host and very eager to share his knowledge of the area.
