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. There are many eateries near by. We had a great dinner at the OakTree in Felton. If you are at all interested in homesteading, the Mountain Feed and Farm Supply is just around the corner. Allow an hour to browse.
The room was ok. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were not. The house was quiet during the night. Breakfast was plentiful. The sausage was weird and the egg casserole was bland. There were guests there who were, in my opinion, overly demanding. Gael met this with grace and patience and compassion.
Overall a great experience.
- 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
