My husband and I stayed here over a long weekend in February. This was our first time at this Inn. We have been to Hunter many times and have stayed at a variety of places in the area. The price of the hotel is very reasonable considering its close proximity to Hunter Mountain which was a huge plus. The check... More

Ctomajko, Owner at Fairlawn Inn, responded to this review

Thanks for the nice review. The inn is an historic home and some of the rooms are not as well insulated between walls as others so it is possible to hear noises from other rooms. We apologize for that but would be tearing down 110 year old wainscoted walls and period wallpapers to sound insulate between rooms. We have had... More

Chuck at the Fairlawn could not have been more attentive and thoughtful during my visit. Everything was tailored to our needs. Food and drinks delicious. Top marks on the shower pressure and I loved all the luxurious furnishings and carpets. Wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy another delicious breakfast!

I stayed at the Fairlawn with a colleague while attending business nearby. It was bitterly cold yet the Inn (and our room) was warm and cozy, and everything was presented perfectly. Chuck was the perfect host, willing to share his evening with us telling stories and filling us in on the history of the Inn. It was very evident he... More

First of all I apologized for the mistake and communicated with her almost immediately. In reference to the rate, I quoted a range of rates for this guest and the room I thought was available was more expensive than the least expensive room. In my conversation with this prospective guest, I indicated that the difference in rate was minimal and... More

My girlfriend made a reservation for us for a special event. We first felt unwelcome when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the room, by pushing the button on the inside of the room (Which there's a tiny 3x3 piece of paper that tells you, but unless you read all of the little notes you wouldn't know) It was 10...

Wow… everything this guest represented happened, just in my estimation in a different way. I was woken up by the guest when they locked themselves out and was not rude just half asleep. We offer a large variety on the menu for breakfast and in an effort to get all guests served properly we do ask that the guest keep... More

1) My biggest complaint - unacceptably low temperatures in the room. You can't regulate the heating yourself, there is one common thermostat for a couple of rooms which turns the heating on and off intermittently, and is supposed to maintain the temperature at 68 F. However, this system doesn't work properly, and when the radiator is turned off the temperature... More

I understand this guest was unhappy with her stay and fully expected her review. We did everything we could do to make amends and accommodate her at every turn. The inn is 110 years old and though remodeled and updated still has challenges to keep heated when it is -20 degrees. I called my repair service and they responded in... More

I found this place via Tripadvisor and knew that I could not go wrong from the reviews that were published here.

Fantastic Inn! Chuck does a great job making sure you enjoy yourself, and willingly helps with any thing you need. Rooms are very comfortable. On days with bad weather - you can feel at home and have enough to do in the Inn. Chuk - excellent!

Me and my husband stayed at Fairlawn Inn for four nights in late November 2013. I must highlight a number of aspects that made our stay exceptionally positive experience: The interior of the Inn is an experience in itself, the place is full of character and magic, mirroring the unique tastes of the owner. The rooms are full of paintings... More

We just love going to the Catskills and when we do we stay at the Fairlawn. And this weekend was as good as any the weather was great. Chuck gave us some great suggestions on things to do and places to eat and they were spot on. We look forward to our next visit.
