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.

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

Beautiful location surrounded by redwood trees. Gael is a marvelous host - very accommodating, yummy breakfast, comfortable bed and right in the middle of nature. What could be better! We can't wait to back!

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

This lovely welcoming place breaks the mould of fancy-dancy B&B. The hosts Gael and Jack are excellent and funny giving great local info, history, route finding and brilliant anecdotes!!

We filled three rooms at Fairview Manor for three nights in July 2013. While we are from the Bay Area, we had family visiting from Colorado, and Fairview Manor was the perfect place to be able to visit in a low-key, homey atmosphere. The beds were extremely comfortable, the food delicious and beautifully presented, the environment was exactly what we... More

Fairview Manor (Gael and Jack proprietors) is built in the midst of towering redwoods with a serene path out the back where one may meander after returning from the days activities. The building was built in the 1920's of local redwood. Quaint appointments. It's an easy drive To Felton to take the train through the red woods to Santa Cruz.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Please call us directly if the calendar shows full, there still may be a room for you! The House was built in 1923 as a summers home for cousins of the Wilder Family. The Carriage House (now used as a barn) was part of the old Ben Lomond Hotel that was burned down around 1915. Its owner was Fred Cody (cousin of Buffalo Bill Cody). The house was converted to a Bed and Breakfast in 1983. My mother bought the B&B in 1986 and it has been run by the Glasson family ever since. There are five bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. Four of the rooms can be used as two bedroom suites. The River Rock fireplace in the Great Room was made from the rocks found around the San Lorenzo River, which runs through the lower end of the three acre property. The back deck overlooks the river and the great mass of trees. Blackberries line the walkway and in September they are ripe for picking. The redwood grove boasts of a pond leftover from the Hotel and a waterfall has been added. Strolling through the property you will notice many areas available for conversation or merely relaxing. ... more   less
