A wonderful place!

5 on August 04, 2014

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.

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.

Perfect Place to Stay in the Catskills

5 on July 08, 2014

Chuck was an excellent host, Hunter is a base good location for exploring the Catskill region, and the Fairlawn Inn is exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Plus, Chuck always has great knowledge of the area and lots of ideas for activities, no matter the season. We will stay here again.

Everything was just impeccable. Couldn't be more amazed. Enjoyed our stay, but was to short. Waiting for another return:)

The Inn was cozy, the décor was quite beautiful and Chuck the Innkeeper made our stay a fabulous one! We met some very nice people and look forward to our next visit!

Charming Supported By Great Food

4.0 on April 03, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed at this B&B for three nights. The bed was comfortable, the room spacious and the breakfast delicious. The pancakes (any flavor) were wonderful. Chuck is a good host and offered suggestions of things to do each day. The room was clean and we felt comfortable. Our only suggestion to folks visiting is to make plans in advance for dinner as the selection in town is limited and not open very late. Chuck has his favorites and we got to try one which was very good. For something casual and with feel good home cooking try the Last Chance Cafe - good cheese selection too.

Chuck's Place

3.0 on March 18, 2014

Lovely rooms in quaint B&B decorated in a funky, eclectic, shabby-chic style. Demerits for tiny, uncomfortable pillows, and tacky plastic wall-mounted shampoo/soap/conditioner dispensers with Dr. Bronner's products; which are ok if you like soap that stings & tingles like a Hall's lozenge on your skin. My room had a round translucent ceiling skylight/solar-powered light fixture, whose timer was off, and turned on in the middle of the night, and could not be turned off manually. This was reported, but not corrected. It was quite amusing (the first night). The breakfast was well prepared in general, though slightly over the top with heavy use of whipped cream, powdered sugar, and candied walnuts caressing your eggs & pancakes. The use of those tiny pastic half&half creamers and plastic coffee carafes is unfortunate in a small B&B (hello Dr. Bronner). And Chuck. Outwardly friendly, but a bit put-offish with the house rules. Lastly, it is advertised as walking distance to Hunter Mt.; which it is, if you are ok with walking about a mile or so, mostly uphill, with your ski gear. We drove. Correcting the above, especially having a more "open-arms" approach, would garner four stars or more, and a return visit.

cozy B&B

friendly and beautiful decor inside and out.great location to Hunter mountain and local town

I can't wait to go back

5 on February 26, 2014

It was my first time staying at the Fairlawn and most certainly will not be my last. The house is stunning and very well maintained. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. The breakfast is to die for! I've stayed in many B&B's and had the usual eggs cereal etc. This however was gourmet dining at it's best. Chuck the innkeeper is very helpful and friendly.
