Fairview is a great place to stay especially to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Very peaceful and Jennifer was very accommodating. If you like wine Fairview is located in a good location just outside a ton of wineries. We had a personal assistant to personally take us around which made sampling a lot easier... More

Really - from the moment I turned down the half-mile private drive, I fell in love with Fairview! Words cannot express the beauty. Jennifer, the owner, is a consummate professional and it is obvious she has poured her heart and soul into the property. What a perfect place to rest and recharge... and the view... !!!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Fairview Bed and Breakfast. We only stayed for two nights, but the place really felt like home. We had originally planned to spend the whole day out hiking, but the weather didn't cooperate. However, we had just as much fun building a fire and cooking in the great kitchen! We forgot... More

10 girls had the time of our lives at Fairview Estate! Beautiful weather, and the perfect location atop of a hill that over looked the blue ridge skyline made it so memorable. When you walk in, you are just floored with the spacious house, and luxurious rooms! Each room has a huge bed, with layers of blankets and pillows on... More

We skiied for two days at the nearby Wintergreen ski resort and found the cottage to be a pleasant place to spend our evening time and to cook breakfast in the morning. The estate is is a picturesque farm,... More

From the tranquility and charm of the historic home, to the beauty all around us, Fairview provided the perfect setting for our family to come together from across the U.S. for a late Christmas celebration. Our grown children and their spouses were thrilled with every detail. Even in the midst of winter, Fairview gave us the opportunity to relax and... More

We brought a large group of "twenty-somethings" from Wilmington, NC to Fairview to spend New Year with no idea how incredible the trip would actually be. The photos on the site are nice, but there is no way to do this place justice until you see it for yourself. There is nothing like waking up in a luxurious bed in... More

This was my second stay at Fairview and it was just as lovely as the first. This time we stayed in the Lavender Room - if I could recreate the space for my own home I would in a heartbeat - comfy cozy bedding and beautifully layed out just as every room is uniquely decorated. My favorite thing is morning... More
