One of the most enjoyable stays we have had in years.

5 on October 29, 2017

Extremely pleasant surroundings. Very professional and looked after any needs we had. Very kind and courteous..

Perfect in Auburn

4.6 on October 12, 2017

We had a great stay at the Fountainview Mansion for an Auburn Football game. The staff was awesome. They were very accommodating to our needs. Unfortunately we were not able to make breakfast either morning due to prior commitments but it looked and smelled wonderful. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Phenomenal B&B in so many ways!

5 on October 10, 2017

We had an incredible visit to the Fountainview Mansion for one of Auburn's home games. The rooms were decorated beautifully and the staff was attentive and down to earth. We had plenty of space and Carley English treated us like family. Breakfast was jut delicious and the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable. Everything was over the top! I would definitely recommend Fountainview to all traveling in and around Auburn.

We enjoyed our stay

Nice change to a hotel. Carley is very pleasant and will accommodate you in every way. Breakfast is wonderful. Bed was not comfortable. If you are allergic to cats, you won't want to stay here as there are 2 cats that roam every room in the mansion.

Awesome stay!

My wife and I spent a great weekend in the Auburn area! The Mansion, the room and the staff all make you feel incredibly warm and welcome!

All around FABULOUS!

5 on July 09, 2017

We stayed at Fountainview while visiting Auburn. Beautiful B&B, Carley & Patrick were fabulous hosts. The B&B was clean and inviting, the breakfast Carley made was outstanding (as well as the cookies) and the grounds were pristine. The entire stay was outstanding+.

Amazing Stay

5 on May 22, 2017

The Mansion is the best place you could stay in Auburn. The rooms are beautiful and the entire place is great. They are so accommodating to your needs. You will not be disappointed if you stay here. The bathrooms are perfect.

Hidden Gem in Auburn

5 on May 11, 2017

Not everyone knows about this place and maybe that is what makes is so special. Second stay at the Mansion and I would never stay anywhere else. The rooms are big and the bathrooms are great. The caretakers are wonderful and so helpful. I love this place.

A wonderful weekend!

5 on April 13, 2017

This was the first time I have ever stayed in a B & B and I have to say, Fountainview Mansion has definitely set the bar high! The grounds are beautiful and the mansion is amazing, especially at sunset. Carley and the staff serve breakfast every morning and again, wonderful. The thing I loved most about my stay is that Carley has created an atmosphere that really makes you feel at home and welcomed. I will definitely be returning soon.

Magnificent hidden treasure

5 on April 13, 2017

The Fountainview Mansion was by far the best B&B that I've ever been to. The grounds were beautiful and the five unique bedrooms were outstanding. More importantly, the staff made our stay memorable. I will always stay at the Fountainview when I'm in Auburn. Just a gem. Frank D

Road Trip Night Stop

5 on March 19, 2017

This was an expected, beautiful stop for us!! The rooms were incredible and the brunch the following morning was truly spectacular. What a wonderful time!

Wedding Night

5 on March 14, 2017

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding night as a gift from his parents! We had a wonderful experience from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! We had chocolate covered strawberries waiting on us in the room when we arrived! Very nice large room with a large bathroom! In the morning the breakfast wast absolutely delicious! The staff were very friendly and accommodating! Thank you for the perfect start to our marriage!

Beautiful home

5 on March 14, 2017

This home really is a mansion! The grounds and home and gorgeous. The caretakers are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious! Wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely recommend this B & B.

Elegant, Charming, and Peaceful

4.8 on February 02, 2017

An exquisite bed and breakfast experience like no other. The breakfast is memorable and the estate is every bit as luxurious as the pictures suggest. Would be a terrific place for a special event or wedding! Service was warm, attentive, and not intrusive. If you haven't heard of Fountainview Mansion.. it is your new hidden gem!

Will come again!

3.8 on November 21, 2016

My travelers were thrilled with their stay. The only comment was it didn't have an elevator and they had trouble getting their bags to their second-floor room. They are older and not as fit as they used to be.

A wonderful weekend at Fountainview

4.0 on May 02, 2016

My wife and I stayed at the Fountainview Masion while in Auburn for a reunion. It is a grand and beautiful estate. We loved the furnishings and we were very comfortable in the Kensington Room. Carley English and her husband Patrick are excellent hosts. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, the homemade cookies and the warm hospitality. It is very peaceful out on the estate but only a few minutes from Auburn's campus. We have already recommended Fountainview to several of our friends and look forward to another stay the next time we are in Auburn.

Best Bed and Breakfast!

5 on April 21, 2016

Absolutely gorgeous bed and breakfast. Carly was a wonderful hostess and the food was amazing. Everything was perfect and we will definitely stay here again. This Mansion stands out from all other bed and breakfasts. You need to check this one out.

Mansion to ourselves!

5 on January 29, 2016

We had a wonderful night all to ourselves and the caretaker met all our needs. Very friendly and attentive, we'd definitely recommend staying for a quick getaway. Only recommendation? Hot tub would be a nice addition! :)

Because It Is Auburn

4.6 on November 30, 2015

Once again the Fountainview was the perfect weekend retreat for our family of nine ( three generations) attending an Auburn football game. The combination of old world charm, superb service from innkeeper Carley, making it "a home away from home" as we spread out and enjoyed the ambiance inside and out. The appearance on Saturday of the holiday decorations was an added bonus. Breakfast was a real treat as well for all ages. Would go back tomorrow if we could!

Fountainview Mansion is Fantastic!!!

5 on August 28, 2015

Thank you so much for the care and attention shown to our son and his new bride when they enjoyed their honeymoon in your incredible mansion! It was the treat of a lifetime for them, and couldn't not have been any better!!!!!!

Secluded retreat

4.4 on August 18, 2015

Always LOVE staying at the Fountainview. It is such a lovely home with large, comfortable, beautifully designed rooms with the little touches like turn down service with hot, homemade cookies that make your stay a secluded retreat from the business of the day.

Graduation weekend to remember

4.8 on May 20, 2015

Our previous stay at Fountainview Mansion was so positive that we planned to stay here on many more occasions. Graduation weekend usually is a frenetic weekend of move out and ceremony, but the literal calm of Fountainview's location and staff made it a beautiful memory. The staff is friendly and always accommodating. When our post-graduation picnic plans hit a road bump and we had to find a plan B they were more than happy to allow us to not only use the patio and grounds, but the kitchen as well. They saved the day and made the day a beautiful memory not only for our daughter, but the 14 other family members. Gorgeous property, friendly staff and a gracious and giving attitude that has won our eternal gratitude. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Clean bathrooms and sheets are important

2.8 on May 09, 2015

We stayed only for one night. It was a gorgeous bed and breakfast. We were very tired from packing up our son's dorm room and hoping to come back, shower, and relax in bed watching tv. When I went to restroom I noticed dried blood or something in front of toilet and the checkered time. Seemed odd but thought possibly paint. To my horror as I was getting in shower inside curtain also had stains. Decided to look at toilet closer and the same blood was down front of toilet outside as well that inside of toilet had not been cleaned. Next as we pulled the sheets back there was black specks all in the bed sheets. As it was late (11pm) we chose to clean the bed off with towel and go to bed. In the am we chose not to have the breakfast because we weren't sure how sanitary the inn was after these 2 incidents. We did choose to leave a $20 tip so hopefully the cleaners would feel guilty and actually change the sheets and clean the toilet for the next guests. We won't stay there again.

Easter Family Getaway

5 on April 13, 2015

We stayed at the Fountainview Mansion over Easter 2015. The rooms were large, clean with fine linens and a spacious bathroom. I also appreciated having a walk-in closet. The breakfast was delicious and we especially appreciated the flowers and decorated eggs for Eastertime. Another thoughtful touch was the gift of an Easter bunny for each of our children. We will definitely return!

Windsor Room

4.6 on March 02, 2015

Clean, organized and professional. Of course, very beautiful. The breakfast's were lovely and tasty. So nice to be spoilt! We loved our time there. We were torn between viewing the area or just staying there. It is a bit out of town, so you had to drive to eat other meals, but that also made it quiet.

Serendipitous find!

5 on February 24, 2015

One night stay on a Saturday in February-- Valentine's Day actually, though it wasn't planned as part of a celebration -- we just needed a place to stay in Auburn while we explored the trail biking at the Chewacla Park nearby.

Beautiful home.

3.6 on February 05, 2015

Beautiful home. Breakfast way too basic, and repeated each morning.

Romantic getaway

4.4 on January 15, 2015

Nestled away on a vast property, Fountainview has an old-world feel with new-world comforts. The mansion itself is worth a visit just to walk around, but to stay in one of the rooms and soak in the property is a real treat. We stayed in the Kensington room and it was beautifully decorated with a great view of the front grounds- and you could even see town in the distance. Room felt luxurious without losing its coziness. Breakfast was great- to be honest we thought we'd nibble on a few things but save room for some Cracker Barrell after we left, but it was so good we abandoned Cracker Barrell pretty quickly. While it feels like you're away from the world on the property, it's just a minute from Interstate 85 so you're a very short drive from Downtown Auburn or restaurants and entertainment in Opelika. Really a great and unique spot to stay in the A/O area. Thanks to the staff for great service and a wonderful stay!

Post Christmas stay

Room clean and comfortable. Very quiet. Breakfast excellent and Jason was very nice. We did not go to Moore's Mill Country Club, but plan to do that in the future.

Hidden gem in Auburn

4.8 on November 13, 2014

My husband and I spent two nights at Fountainview (11/7 and 11/8/14) and were so pleased with our choice. We got to meet other people who were staying there, which was nice. The property is gorgeous. We stayed in The Balmoral Room and it was very comfortable and clean. Jason was a terrific host and the breakfast offered something for everyone - eggs, biscuits, yogurt, fruit, sausage, bacon, juice...I'm probably forgetting something because it was quite a spread! A coffee pot was in our room as well so that we could get the day started prior to going down to breakfast. Driving into Auburn for the game was very convenient from this location. Amazingly, everyone we talked to at the tailgate was oblivious to this place. Shhhhh...don't tell anyone else because we want it all to ourselves!

Amazing getaway

5 on September 05, 2014

Amazing place!! The mansion, grounds, rooms and staff were incredible. If you are looking for a quiet place to get away to than this is your place. Def with be returning!!!

50th anniversary

4.4 on August 30, 2014

Our entire family and guests had a wonderful time. A great venue for any special occasion.

Ariel's Graduation and Realted Events!

4.8 on August 07, 2014

As usual, Jason completely delivered outstanding service and hospitality. We needed a conference room for our daughter's post-graduation get together and, despite a totally packed facility (16 Tiger Paw cheerleaders were having their training camp on-site), Jason came through for us like a champion! Our stay was wonderful and we are looking forward to enjoying this welcoming atmosphere in the near future!.

Very much enjoyed our stay. The service was very good.

The room was great, ground beautiful and the breakfast was wonderful

our stay at Fountainview

5 on March 20, 2014

My daughter and I stayed at The Fountainview Mansion during a recent college visit to Auburn University. We were thrilled with the room, service and overall experience we enjoyed and wish we could have stayed longer. Jason was a wonderful inn keeper and made us feel quite at home. I have told many friends and some of the locals we met at Auburn about this wonderful treasure and will definitely plan to stay there on any future visits.

Way beyond expectations!

5 on February 17, 2014

I have been to resorts around the world and this place simply blew everything else out of the water. Everything about the grounds and the mansion itself is breathtaking! The level of personal assistance and creature comforts offered are unmatched. Excellent value for the level of perfection this establishment offers!

A Wise Decision

5 on February 17, 2014

When considering an overnight stay in or around Auburn, AL you would be wise to invest your money securing any one of the rooms offered at Fountainview Mansion. For nearly the same amount of money as an ordinary hotel room you'll surely be rewarded with sensory overload as you tour the magnificent spaces made available to you when choosing to stay at Fountainview. A wonderful and refreshing night's sleep awaits on a Stearns and Foster mattress and the breakfast provided by Jason the innkeeper is truly five stars. Thank you Jason for treating us like royalty while staying in the Buckingham suite at Fountainview--it was by far a great experience and is highly recommended.

Customer Service

was excellent.

Great visit just after Christmas

4.8 on January 15, 2014

We stayed on a Monday night after Christmas as a surpise Christmas present to my mom. We reserved two rooms but had the entire place to ourselves. It was great! We were able to explore the mansion as we pleased. We would definitely stay again!

Bed & Breakfast of a lifetime

5 on January 06, 2014

This was a Christmas present from my husband and being here truly blew me away!!! What elegance and charm!! I felt like a queen while there! Hope to come again some day! The entire house was so amazing and beyond clean and comfortable!!! The morning breakfast prepared by James was such an amazing presentation and delicious taste!! Great job to everyone that makes this such a wonderful place to enjoy!

Fountainview Mansion

Jason was absolutely amazing. He was very thoughtful and attentive. The mansion was absolutely beautiful with great service. The decor was stunning and I enjoyed my stay emensily. I would recommend Fountainview Mansion to anyone. I couldn't have had a more pleasant stay.

Jason was absolutely fabulous! Attended to our every need or want! The mansion is amazing!

Great Visit

4.0 on December 04, 2013

The Fountainview Mansion is an incredible estate with plenty of space in both the rooms and the common areas. The breakfast was a delicious feast and the service was great. The Mansion does lack a sense of history, but compensated by having modern amenities. Our host was more than generous with his hospitality; however, the Mansion is not operated by the owners and had a mixed feel of a bed and breakfast and a lavish mansion style hotel. Overall I would recommend the Mansion and would stay again myself.

Fabulous place

5 on November 22, 2013

My husband surprised me with a stay for my birthday. From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed our surroundings. Southern hospitality at its very best!

Beautiful mansion with outstanding surrounding, but the service needs to be improved

3.0 on October 19, 2013

We, a couple from Switzerland, stayed the last 5 days /nights at the Fountainview Mansion. The house and the garden with the swimming pool, the huge surrounding area with a lot of old trees and the quietness are very impressive and noble. Although the Mansion was only built 12 years ago, you have the feeling to go back in a time of 1600-1700. The rooms are big and nicely furnished, appropriate to the epoque the house wants to reflect. As we stepped in the first night we were blown off by the beauty of this Mansion. We expected a service as outstanding as the house itself. Unfortunately we were going to be disappointed. The inkeeper Jason was in a permanent hurry, we have hardly seen him. He did not seem to be interested in us as guests. The breakfast was quickly prepared, kind of convenience food, without any passion and far too little. After 5 minutes Jason disappeared and was never seen again for the whole day. Not what you expect from a B&B of that kind. After having complained we got a wonderful and greatly prepared breakfast for our last morning. The General Manager of Moore's Mill, Greg, and Jason prepared it themselves. It was absolutely excellent. We got also - for the first time - the table nicely decorated and a personal chat with the inkeeper resp. with Greg. It was a great pity that we had not recieved that attention previous to our complaint and to our last day. In any case it has to be pointed out that the professional way our complaint was dealt with by Greg was remarkable and perfect. We also got a discount on our room prize as sign of apology and a personal excuse letter from Jason. Great sign, thank you.

Outstanding in every way

5 on October 19, 2013

Luxury, beauty and hospitality all rolled into one

Fabulous B&B, Beautiful pool and gounds!

5 on July 08, 2013

My family and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Fountainview Mansion while traveling through the Auburn Area into North Georgia. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. We were traveling with our three children and stayed in the Buckingham suite, which was perfect for a family! Jason was a wonderful host and was happy to show us the house and spectacular grounds. We will be returning in the future for a longer stay.

Over the top service to match the grandness of the mansion, continued...

5 on July 05, 2013

The mansion obviously was beautiful for the event, but also I had guests coming up to me telling me that they had never been to a wedding that ran so smoothly. Besides the event itself, the staff went above and beyond to make my family's stay a positive one. Jason himself cooked my bridesmaids and I a breakfast like none other with bacon and homemade blueberry waffles. The day after the wedding we had fruit and yogurt parfait and scrambled eggs with both turkey and regular bacon in addition to cinnamon buns. It was set up beautifully in the dining room. The rooms were clean and comfortable and I would definitely return to the mansion for another event or just a weekend getaway. The new ownership exceeded my expectations for the event that I had envisioned. I would recommend the Fountainview to anyone looking to plan an event or even stay for a football game. It's elegant, grand, affordable, and most importantly the staff was excellent!

Innkeeper Response
Kyle, it was our pleasure to help plan and execute your wedding day, as well as accommodate your closest friends and family with lodging options during their time in Auburn. You have a beautiful family and we hope that you bring Brandon and the boys back to visit us soon. Congratulations!

Over the top service to match the grandness of the mansion

5 on July 05, 2013

I had my wedding at the Fountainview Mansion just a couple days ago. I had gone to a wedding at the mansion last summer, but upon booking mine had learned that there was a change in ownership. Like any other person, I became apprehensive at my wedding would not be as organized as my friends due to the change in ownership. Upon meeting Jason Grimes, the event coordinator and grounds keeper, my apprehensions were diminished. He was extremely organized and passionate, making it extremely easy to trust him and rest easy leading up to the wedding. He went above and beyond to add accents to the wedding that greatly corresponded to my theme. The Moores Mill staff was accommodating and friendly, treating all my guests equally and efficiently

A Memorable Wedding Anniversary

5 on June 05, 2013

My wife and I celebrated our 62nd wedding anniversary at Fountainview Mansion, and it was indeed a memorable experience. The elegance of the mansion is matched by the warm hospitality of Jason and his staff. From the beginning of my contact with Jason, I was impressed by his strong desire to make our stay at Foiuntainview one that we would always remember. His attention to details was commendable, and his effort to personalize the visit was shown in special things he did for my wife and me. We have traveled extensively, and we have stayed in many Bed and Breakfast locations. I would have to say that the peaceful setting, elegance of the mansion,, and the hospitality extended make me rate Fountainview among the best. While it is located conveniently to Auburn, the short drive to the mansion causes one to think he has suddenly moved to another land - one that is filled with beauty and peace.

Innkeeper Response
Kenneth, Your review means so much to us! Thank you for recognizing our service level and attention to detail. We hope to see the both of you again very soon.

Absolutely Amazing Venue

5 on May 20, 2013

Our daughter, Kalli was married to Aaron at Fountainview on May 9, 2013. Jason and the staff at Fountainview exceeded our expectations. Jason went above and beyond his call of duty. We feel we now have a life-long friend! Fountainview is absolutely breathtaking. It was like a fairy-tale wedding to all of us involved. We all felt like King and Queens during this Special Occasion. I promise you will not be disappointed in the least if you choose to have your wedding or special event at Fountainview!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kinds. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
