About

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'.

Fantastic for families!

4.6 on November 20, 2014

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 :)

Innkeeper Response

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.

Innkeeper Response
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!

Innkeeper Response
