Me and my husband stayed at Fairlawn Inn for four nights in late November 2013. I must highlight a number of aspects that made our stay exceptionally positive experience: The interior of the Inn is an experience in itself, the place is full of character and magic, mirroring the unique tastes of the owner. The rooms are full of paintings statuettes, plants and antique furniture. The living spaces on the ground floor invite you to spend an evening after a busy day by the fire cosied up with a book or playing pool - with complementary bar of light and alcoholic drinks available to you. The owner of the inn is a man of multiple talents - he is a warm welcoming host that makes himself available to guests questions and requests, a well of knowledge when it comes to the attractions and restaurants in the area and an amazing cook! I would recommend Fairlawn Inn to anyone and would definitely come back to visit again.

This mansion was truly a Victorian dreamscape! Chuck was incredibly informative, friendly and full of talent! How he cares for this piece of dream property is amazing. This is a "must-see!"

Chuck met us at the front door and showed us around. He was very pleasant and accommodating. We stayed in the Glenwood; The room was a bit smaller than the pictures led us to believe, but it was very clean and inviting. The bed was a tad uncomfortable for both my wife and I, but overall, we had a very pleasant experience.

We stayed at Fairlawn Inn as part of a weekend getaway from New York. Very impressed with the detail provided in our booking - with ideas on what to do, where to go and places to eat sent through with our confirmation. It was great, and very helpful. Our host was there on arrival and took us through all the details of the house, he was very pleasant. The room (Gazebo) was exactly how it was pictured, and very tastefully decorated. Quiet and had a nice view over to the mountains. Unfortunately can't comment on the 'breakfast' side of B&B as we chose to sleep in past the allocated dining time.
