This is a lovely place. Very neat and clean. Stefania, the innkeeper was very accommodating. We loved the coziness of the inn. Unfortunately we were not able to sample the breakfast because we needed to leave extra early. But, given the look of the place and the care that was obviously put into everything, I imagine the meal would have been outstanding.
We spent two nights in the Fairlawn Inn and were very impressed. The owner is very helpful with information about restaurants, places to go, etc. The breakfast was wonderful - juice, coffee, pastries, fruit and after that anything you want - eggs, pancakes, etc. The Inn is beautiful and very well decorated. We stayed in the Glenwood room and loved the double jacuzzi and the fireplace. For some reason I can't click on "outstanding" and can only hit "Exceeded my expectations", but I would really rate the Inn as outstanding in all aspects.
We booked a stay at eh Washington Irving Inn as we were attending a wedding in the Catskills. Clean, nice, friendly, did I say clean, yes. We were very pleased and would absolutely stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone. We made a reservation for a particular room, and then realized that it was not what we needed. We were able to change rooms without a problem, the owner was more than happy to accommodate our request. The breakfast in the AM was more than you could ask for. Pleasant server, freshly prepared breakfast made to order and tasty. Thank you
Chuck and Jim made our stay so great that we decided to stay with them again the following week on our return trip home. they truly run a great operation. The fire pit Saturday night was awesome. Vince
Our stay was absolutely perfect. The Inn was beautiful, intriguing and wonderfully decorated. The room was excellent and the owners were terrific hosts, preparing delightful breakfasts every day. My one complaint is that the bed was so hard that I had pain in my back for a few hours after waking up each day, but I quickly forgot about it as I was having such a great time. Thanks a lot!
A great experience at the Washington Irving Inn. This was the perfect place to get out of the city and relax at a very reasonable room rate. It's no frills, but for a nice comfy place to sleep at night with very hospitable innkeepers this is the place. It was very peaceful on the property and there is plenty of outdoor seating. The pool was a nice addition and perfect to jump into after a long day of zip lining and hiking. The breakfast was delicious. And the service was impeccable. Stephanie is a superstar, very sweet, kind and willing to help in anyway she can. She made myself and my fiancée iced tea from scratch with yummy homemade shortbread cookies which she made sure to pack extra of for us to take back to the room. Need a bottle of water, Stephanie has you covered. I would highly recommend this place for a nice escape-we will be back!!
Chuck, the inn-keeper, is amazing!! We stayed in the Glenwood room at the Fairlawn Inn for the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival. It was our first time and Chuck immediately made us feel at home. He told us of the Kaaterskill Falls as well as where to go for good food and where the "not-so-good food was. The room, along with the Inn as a whole was very quaint and very clean! The food was outstanding every morning and the snacks and beverages at night were equally enjoyable! After a night of great music, we were welcomed back with a cozy fire in the yard to warm up to. The last night, we spent in front of the fireplace in the main living area of the Inn where we were accompanied by Chuck and his great hospitality! It was an incredible weekend, one we won't soon forget! The Fairlawn Inn is certainly on our list as a place we will visit again!
The Fairlawn is a nice relaxing B&B in Hunter, NY. This is an old building with a lot of charm. Flowers abound & there is a nice cozy patio with a fire pit to have a nightcap. The owner Chuck went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable & engaged us enough to know he really cares about his business. We would stay here again
I stayed at this BnB several years ago. I believe her name was Mary that took care of us. It was very quaint, comfortable and warming. The different rooms and everything about it was so antique-ish, and it was a delight. I remember the plates on the wall at breakfast, which was in such abundance, I was full just looking at it. I am now again looking to stay a few nights again soon, and may venture to Windham.
Chuck made our stay so special and really created a wonderful camaraderie among his guests. The Inn is beautiful and the grounds are really just so lovely. I would highly recommend the Fairlawn and would absolutely stay there again.
We recently traveled from Portland, OR to spend time with family on the east coast. We met in Hunter, NY and stayed at Fairlawn Inn. The Inn has great "curb appeal" with a well-maintained exterior and beautifully landscaped grounds. The interior is furnished with antiques and collectibles which create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere. The main floor of the Inn is available to guests; amenities include a sitting room, pool table, and snack area. Another great place to hang out is the patio, lushly landscaped and including a firepit and fountain. Breakfast is prepared to order from a menu of eggs, pancakes, and omelettes. The Inn is within walking distance of Hunter Mt. and other Catskill destinations are within easy drives. A variety of outdoor activities are readily available. Great birding in the area. Innkeeper Chuck was welcoming and accommodating. This would be a great place for a group/family get-together. Ann B.
Beautiful Victorian that owner has done a great job of furnishing and maintaining. The building and grounds are exceptional. Our suite included a comfortable queen bed, period furnishings, fireplace, and a very large bathroom with claw foot tub and shower. Chuck is a hands on owner, attentive to his guests and provides an awesome breakfast. This was my first visit, and I will be calling Chuck when I visit Hunter again.
My wife and I stayed at the Catskill Lodge recently and we were very pleased with the warm, inviting atmosphere there as well as the excellent service/breakfast from the Innkeepers. I would recommend staying there to anyone looking for a laid back stay in beautiful Catskill Mountains. I plan to return for at least one ski trip this coming winter.
We stayed in the Opal Room - 2 adults and one child (aged 13). The exterior and interior of this beautiful B & B are very, very well maintained. Chuck puts a lot of work into keeping the home in its original condition and it shows. When we arrived Chuck gave us a tour of the home as well as our room. There are several sitting areas to read and relax both inside and out. There is a pool table as well which we enjoyed. Our room was extremely large, spotless and provided beautiful views of Hunter Mountain right outside our window. In the morning Chuck prepares you a delicious breakfast in the dining room MADE TO ORDER!! We have stayed in other B & B's and this is not the norm for breakfast. Chuck has a breakfast menu with lots of options to please everyone - Fruit, homemade bread, eggs, pancakes, etc.
I have never stayed at a bed & breakfast prior to my stay at the Catskill Lodge so I wasn't 100% sure what to expect. After staying there all I can say is it more than exceeded any expectations that I Could have had! The house was beautifully located in a quiet part of town, very well kept, and we all had our privacy. We enjoyed the hot tub before venturing into town for a night out in Windham and returned to a great nights sleep while staying in the Catskill Suite. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and the hosts were extremely sweet!! I highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in the Catskills to stay here!!
Had a wonderful time in the Bliss Carmen room. The feeling of the place is magical. The staff is helpful and kind. Just a few miles from town and everything you could need. Would definitely stay again!
The rooms are lovely and comfortable, and the bed and pillows were very nice. Inn keeper is very nice and attentive, and the breakfast and afternoon tea (plus chocolates in the room!) were wonderful. Breakfast is big portions (I had a huge omelette each day), with lots of fresh fruit, toast, and pastries available on the side. Obviously an old house with some creaky floors and temperature issues (actually, our room was WAY too hot and dry, but we made it work), but that is also part of the charm.
Beautiful inn located within 2 minutes of hunter mountain, we stayed in the gazebo room which was very nice. Breakfast was amazing Chuck the inn keeper takes pride in his food and it shows. I would highly recommend the Fairlawn and will plan on another trip in the future.
The home is a beautifully decorated victorian, with large rooms, and privacy. The rooms are sunny, clean and the bed was firm. The breakfast was better than expected, fresh baked goods, eggs and bacon, and fresh squeezed juice, not the expected continental breakfast of stale croissants and previously opened jam jars, lol. Chuck pays aatention to details and it showed in all the aspects of our stay...Thanks you for a relaxing time.
