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. Chuck makes sure that you are comfortable and all your needs are met. We were a group with three generations and all of us loved the... More

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.

I've started writing this review a few times now, I just can't seem to get the words right. This was the BEST get away I've had in... well, maybe ever!

WOW.... we live for reviews like this. It is rewarding to have a property that matches guests needs and it is always a great thing to exceed guests expectations when they visit. We try hard to maintain the historic property and also include modern conveniences like Flat screen TV's with DVD players. We have been green since acquiring the property... More

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. The pool table was fun and... More

It is always nice as an innkeeper to see families enjoying the pool table, the common areas and the amenities offered at the inn. They were a pleasure to have at the inn and conversations with them were a great addition to my day. One of the best parts of inn keeping is meeting international visitors and asking questions about... More

We stayed for two days to attend the NYS Garlic festival and also do some hiking in the area. Like other reviews stated, the Inn is within minutes of Hunter Mountain, and 15 mins from North South Lake a great place for hiking. Chuck was pleasant and clearly committed to the little details that made that a nice place to... More

This old Victorian building is quite beautiful, with lovely gardens where one can sit and relax. The innkeeper is very personable and helpful with ideas of things to do and see, but, most of all, he's a great cook. Full breakfasts are wonderful to look forward to.
