Everything was fantastic. Chuck was extremely friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent. Will definitely visit again.
Fantastic, friendly and welcoming.... all good things to get on a review. I love to cook and glad your breakfast was excellent. Since you almost never stay at bed and breakfasts maybe this will encourage more stays here and at other inns when you trave. Thanks for the great review and it is great to hear you will return. Please bring friends.

We had a very comfotable stay at the Fairlawn Inn whilst skiing for a couple of days. Chuck was the ultimate good host - he couldn't have made us feel more welcome or have done more for us during our stay. The breakfast was fantastic and lived up to all the rave reviews. Highly recommend this quirky and comfortable Inn. Many thanks Chuck.
Thank you for your compliments and good review. We are glad to live up to the reviews that have come previously and happy that you concur. Please come back soon!

Stayed for 1 night in February to ski and celebrate an anniversary. We had snow overnight and when we woke up, our car had been cleared of snow for us. Breakfast was exceptional, fresh fruit, coffee, and muffins accompanied the menu. The proprietor was friendly and chatted with us after he was done cooking.
we are glad you enjoyed your experience with us. We try to insure guests enjoy their time with us up to the point of clearing snow from cars in the parking lot. Please come see us again soon!

This was our 2nd visit to Fairlawn Inn for my wife and I. We stayed at Fairlawn Inn 4 years ago and returned this year. Thanks to Chuck this B&B remained as great, cozy and welcoming as 4 years ago. Very romantic and cozy place. Our room was very clean. We had a room with a gas fireplace, which was awesome. His Dining area and leaving Room area are super nice. There is a pool table, variety of different very interesting magazines and books, always available tea/coffee and other drinks. Chuck does his best to make your stay very warm. One of the best part of our staying was his delicious breakfast. Thank you, Aleksey and Irina
We love returning guests and hope to see them often. We have one couple that has been coming for 13 years and they have become great friends. We try our best to continue to update the inn and like providing the breakfasts that guests enjoy. It is nice to hear our efforts are appreciated. Thanks for a great review Irina and Aleksey come back soon!

In my subjective opinion, rooms are quite expensive and outdated. There are holes in the floor in the room, dust in lamps and other parts of furniture. Overall it's ok, but I wouldn't stay there again.
We apologize if this guest found their room dusty. We make every effort to maintain the inn to a high standard. Each guest room was completely repainted and restaged with new linens the last few months so I am quite surprised they found it dated. We feel our rates are in line with other inns and lodging facilities in the area. We clean each room after each guest leaves and check it again before each check in so again I am surprised it was dusty. Again we are sorry this guest did not enjoy their stay. The most previous review indicated we were a great value and rated a 10 on a scale of 5. We hope each guest has this experience and wish this guest had had a similar experience. We will take this review to heart and insure that we double check each room more thoroughly.

I chanced upon Fairlawn Inn on Tripadvisor and after reading all the reviews, I decided to book this place! Because there were the 6 of us, I was so afraid that there weren't any rooms left for our stay and so I emailed and called Chuck a couple of times (maybe more than just a couple) and he was so nice in accommodating us! He's the best!! He cooks, he cleans, he does EVERYTHING here! We enjoyed the homemade breakfast he prepares for us and his hospitality. There are cookies, fruits, drinks and coffee for us after we were done skiing and it was just perfect! My room had a fireplace and it was just lovely. I hope to visit again soon! The location was just less than 5 minutes drive from Hunter mountain and there's even a movie theatre around the corner! PERFECT PERFECT! Thank you, Chuck for your warm hospitality. We really appreciate it! Hope you're doing well, and hope to see you again soon! :D
Thanks so much for the glowing review. We appreciate you coming to our beautiful area and for your over the top commentary. We do our best to make it a comfortable environment and your commentary makes it worthwhile. We hope you will return often.

The Fairlawn Inn is a spectacular venue. I took my wife there to celebrate our anniversary. It was like stepping into the Victorian era with all the decor and furnishings. The innkeeper, Chuck, was vastly knowledgeable about all the artwork and furnishings. Our room was well appointed with a mix of period and modern pieces. We never needed to ask for anything. Billiards, games, books and magazines abounded in the game room and bar area. The breakfasts were to die for; hearty servings with gourmet flavor. Highly recommended as the best Hunter has to offer.

The hospitality at Fairlawn during my stay was outstanding. The innkeeper, Chuck was very communicative prior to arrival, accommodating for check in, helpful in acclimation to Hunter. The room was perfectly fine, with antique B&B charm, nice warm gas fireplace and nice to have a tv for late night. I stayed in "innkeepers favorite". The highlight of our stay was breakfast, pumpkin spice pancakes and bacon was killer good.
We appreciate the feedback and are glad you enjoyed your breakfast and stay in general. Another guest commented she only ate bacon on vacation and our vacation bacon was the best. Come see us again soon.
