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

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Fairview Manor. It is conveniently located near where our daughter lives in Felton. From the moment we arrived, Gael was so warm and hospitable, making sure we were comfortable in our room, introducing us to the other guests, offering wine and snacks for happy hour. She offered much advice on... 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!! The room itself and the bed were spacious and comfortable. The best bits for me were the conversation, the tasty home-cooked breakfast, wood stove and the fantastic location on the edge... More

My wife and I had two wonderful nights at the Fairview Manor. From the moment we were welcomed by Gael and Jack and the dogs until we reluctantly had to leave, we felt that we were part of the Family. The Bedroom and the Guest lounge were excellent and the breakfasts very tasty. We will certainly return to enjoy the... More

Wow, thank you so much for the brilliant review! We certainly enjoyed your stay and will welcome you both back anytime. We know that we were your "second" choice with Yosemite being closed, but I am glad our redwoods brought you to the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Many thanks again, Gael, Jack, Max and Murphy.

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

We thank you for your very kind review and are very happy that you found us! We enjoyed visiting with you and your wife. As to the darkness of the house, unfortunately being surrounded by Redwoods doesn't help, but during the summer months it is nice to have natural a/c. The interior of the house was paneled with first growth... 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

This is the best place in the area! I have gone to an annual event near Felton for many years and I have stayed in almost every place on highway nine from Felton to Boulder Creek.

We stayed with Gael and Jack for 3 nights, and didn't want to go home when it was time to check out. They were so warm and friendly and incredibly accommodating...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
