We recently stayed at the Fairlawn for our ninth four-night stay and plan to return again. Our room was beautiful and so comfortable, and breakfast was delectable, but we were absolutely dazzled by the patio and lovely plantings! Our innkeeper, Chuck, took great care of us as he always does. It is always good to see him and to see... More

We always look forward to Joannes return each year. I call her the "cheerleader" as she is the self appointed welcome ambassador - she has embraced all newcomers and provides a great orientation on what to bring, where to go in the venue and all the details about how to optimize your time at Mountain Jam. She arrived early this... More

The Fairlawn Inn is the next best thing to home if not better. Chuck is absolutely the most gracious and caring Innkeeper. I will admit as much as I love the music at Mtn. Jam, I could just stay here and hang out all weekend. The grounds are outstanding and immaculate. The rooms are clean, charming, comfortable and well equipped.... More

I think this was the third year for these new friends to come to the Fairlawn. We are fortunate to have a group of regulars that attend Mtn. Jam each year so it is like a family reunion. I always look forward to Mountain Jam weekend as it is a relaxed and convivial group. Innkeepers revel in groups like this.... More

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Fairlawn Inn 2 years in a row for the Taste of Country Festival. We love it! It’s such a beautiful bed & breakfast. The rooms are very clean and tastefully decorated! The house is an old Victorian, so it has that very quaint B&B feel to it. The Innkeeper puts out little... More

My husband and I just spent three nights here for the Taste of Country Festival at Hunter Mountain (June 12-15). The location is perfect-it's just a short walk to the mountain for the action! The room and bathroom were clean, the bed was very comfortable and the towels and bed linens were very nice. It was so quiet and peaceful... More

I stayed at the Fairlawn Inn May 14th, 2015 it was in a word "OUTSTANDING". The Innkeeper Chuck Tomajko attention to detail is literally a labor of love. The decor very warm and traditional, the amenities luxury class (peppermint soap excellent), The grounds very well kept, you know someone cares. But the breakfast farm fresh eggs and Chuck's bacon recipe... More

Fred was a pleasure to have at the inn. His long career in the Hospitality Industry makes his review that much more appreciated and relevant to us. His compliments are valued, are glad he enjoyed his stay and look forward to his return. We just wish his time here was longer in duration as the discussions about the hospitality business... More

This is a very clean inn, in a great location for skiing Hunter Mountain. Our room, the Greene room, was lovely. We had a comfortable and relaxing stay. Breakfast was delicious, with many healthy and interesting choices from side dishes to juices. Chuck is a gracious host. I'd definitely recommend the Fairlawn Inn to fellow travelers. .

We have stayed with Chuck three times and are planning a fourth stay. It feels like we are going back to see an old friend. The house is charming and beautifully decorated with antiques.

It is always a pleasure to have this family come to the inn. It is also a pleasure to see the three generations interact and share in the experience. These guests come here to see a daughter perform at an arts center and are like having family visit. Thanks for returning and keeping me part of the tradition. More

My wife & I have pondered staying at a B&B for quite a while, we chose the Fairlawn Inn for this trip. We were VERY impressed with the attention to detail throughout the facility. Rooms were impeccable with chocolates & bath sundries provided. Breakfast was FANTASTIC, & lastly Chuck was a superb host, we will be back for sure.

This inn is utterly unique, every detail is beautiful from the house, garden to the gorgeous antiques. Our rooms Rose and Opal were so splendiferous and comfortable, we did not really want to leave the house. After a day of freezing on zip lines we relished soaking away the pain in our pedestal baths.

It is always nice as an innkeeper to see families enjoying the pool table, the common areas and the amenities offered at the inn.
