While the setting at Fairlea Farms is gorgeous, quite and idylic, the manner in which the B&B is run is odd. Much is made about breakfast and how wonderful it will be. In fact, the food was terrible. We have never eaten such a gross breakfast - inedible eggs, grits, dry/stale cake. Lots of time had clearly been spent preparing breakfast, but it was a waste. Nobody in my group enjoyed any part of it.
The B&B is very old and in dire need of a rehabilitation. The bathrooms are ancient and quite dirty.
Management of the B&B is unprofessional. The hosts are very intrusive, best described as "busy-bodies" who cannot leave you alone for one second.
In short, avoid this place. Terrible breakfast, very old rooms and bathrooms.

It's almost as if the person who wrote this negative review never stayed at Fairlea Farm B&B. We have a beautiful place, not a strange place.

This winter we added 3 new luxury bathrooms featuring large, jetted showers, double sinks and other beautiful features.
Breafkast is supurb. Guests tell us often that ours is the best breakfast they have had in a B&B.
We are complimented often on the cleanliness of our B&B. It is spotless.
People return year-after-year to stay with us. Most of our guest are a result of guest referrals and repeat customers.
We are hardly busybodies. We can size up pretty well whether people want to talk or not. For those who want to be left alone, we give them space and can often seat them at breakfast by themselves.
