We had such a wonderful time staying at the Fairview! It was my husband, myself, and our 18-month old son. He is very rambunctious, so we were overjoyed to see that they have a nice playground and lots of yard to run around in. The owners are very nice and accommodating. I accidentally booked our room for the wrong week, but I didn't realize it until almost 9:30 at night. I called an left a message for them to call me back. I definitely didn't expect him to call me back immediately and have it fixed before I even talked to him! Breakfast was delicious and the location is so close to SoCo. Overall a wonderful experience! Will definitely be back :)
Thank you! We love having little ones stay with us and I'm glad we were able to fix your booking date problem so easily for you.

The Fairview is a less than 10 minute walk to the vibrant SoCo (South Congress) area of Austin known for its shopping, restaurants and nightlife. Also close by is the kid friendly Big and Little Stacy Park. A 15 minute walk gets you to hike and bike trails of lady Bird lake. By car (Zip, Uber, or your own) you are maybe 6 minutes to downtown, the bats, 6th St and Warehouse/2nd St. district for sophisticated shopping or more music and restaurants. At The Fairview though, you will relax in lovely landscaping and a quiet grand old house decorated with a modern flair that somehow blends nicely with the polished woods. The amenities of an automatic espresso machine for lattes or decafs and mineral water as well as the breakfast available until 11(?) help to make the time away from Austin's great urban vibe super pleasant. The owners are knowledgeable about the area and friendly. They were great people and dog hosts.
We think of ourselves as an urban oasis in downtown Austin and we're so glad you think so too. Thank you for saying so and thank you for staying with us. It was fun to welcome your dog, Puddles, as the first member of our Lucky Dog Club. Lucky says "Woof"!

Excellent stay…the inn is beautiful and well located, the rooms are meticulously appointed, and the innkeepers are extremely welcoming. We would definitely stay here again!

Before the days of air conditioning, every bedroom had a sleeping porch connected to it. The Pecan Room still has one and it is a great place to relax in style. Inside the room is a King bed, private full bath with a giant clawfoot tub. The private screened porch is on the front of the house providing a great view of all the comings and goings at The Fairview, but it also has curtains for privacy if you want to try sleeping outside. The Pecan room can be optionally connected to the Bluebonnet Room to make up a nice suite for families.
A great room with our only Queen bed, the Bluebonnet Room is right sized for singles or couples. With a four poster bed, full bath with shower, striking blue walls, and lots of sunlight it is a very pleasant place to relax.
