Once one of Austin's most beloved B&Bs, the Fairview is again open with new management and a brand new concept. Just a short walk through tree lined streets from the heart of SoCo in downtown Austin yet far enough away to be a quiet, peaceful place to relax. With formally landscaped gardens and retaining the stately historic architecture outside, the inside is newly updated with the finest modern amenities. 3 Standard Rooms plus 2 Suites, private baths in every room, organic mattresses, silk filled pillows & comforters, state of the art Wifi, easy come and go breakfast buffet, and our commitment to see that you, our guest, 'Get what you stay for'.
