We spent our honeymoon in January 1969 at the Brookdale Lodge, so on our 46th anniversary we decided to go back to Ben Lomond to celebrate. Only thing wrong was that Brookdale was closed. So we decided on a quiet B and B,. It was very peaceful, quiet and provide a good breakfast. The room was a little dark, but... More

We are sorry that you were unable to stay at the Brookdale (closed a few years ago and the new owner is trying to remodel) but happy you found us. Our B&B is close to 100 years old and was paneled with first growth Redwood milled here in Ben Lomond, so the rooms do appear to be dark in the... More

Had a great stay @ Fairview Manor B&B. Gael and Jack could not have been more gracious hosts. Comfy bed, wonderful food and plenty of it. All male guests were Veterans and chit chat very spirited!!! So looking forward to returning for another stay!!!! Thanks again.

My wife and I stayed here while visiting for a family wedding. We were greeted at the door by friendly staff that immediately made us feel like family as soon as we walked in. The beds are very comfortable, the grounds are spectacular, and the food, well, we have paid a lot more money for lower quality food. The peach... More

We were travelling from San Fransisco to Los Angeles on Highway 1 and decided to have a detour as we did not want to stay in Santa Cruz. Fairview Manor was a lovely quaint ( in the nicest possible way) alternative. We had a great welcome and the B and B was in a lovely place. Beds very comfortable and... More

We spent a night there with our kids. The place is beautiful and the owners a VERY nice. (Their dogs are also very friendly! Max is a sweetheart.) Try taking a walk down the creek through the Redwood trees. It is very quiet and secluded - which in a town as small as Ben Lomond - means it is tucked... More

I loved my two night retreat at Fairview Manor B&B. My "Sunflower Retreat" room was cheerful with a sitting area and a very comfortable bed. I was welcomed by Gael and Jack and felt safe and secure in their lovely B&B. Fairview Manor is located about a block and a half from downtown Ben Lomond, but it is very quiet... More

We stayed at Fairview Manor B&B based on the review in TripAdvisor, and the fact it was clearly the best place to stay on Highway 9 between Big Basin and Henry Cowell State Parks. Having grown up in San Mateo and San Francisco Counties, the Santa Cruz Mountains are what I think of as my Great Back Yard, and one... More

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and cherish Fairview Manor the way we do! We adore the way we are accessible yet a wee bit hidden, keeps the B&B nice and quiet. We try and serve breakfast items that can't be found anywhere but Fairview Manor, and appreciate you acknowledging this. Wishing "happy trails" on your vacation. More

The very interesting thing about Santa Cruz county is that within minutes you can be in an entirely different city that has an entirely different feel to it. I live in Santa Cruz county and recently had a little mini get-away for a weekend and I went from the ocean area of Capitola to the redwoods of Ben Lomond in... More
