“Beautiful historic Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

Clean and comfortable. Lovely historic building. The Library has coffee and water, games and books - I could have just stayed in there all day. Breakfast is limited. I wish they had more cooked foods and selection of breads. Staff is very pleasant. I will definitely be back.

Very nice - romantic Inn, that reflects yesteryears! Comfortable bed. Details attended to included in supplies! They warned us a train ran through the night - but we wanted the bay view since the room had a fireplace. Could barely hear the train. Not a problem at all!
Village is decorated for Christmas and dining is close and plenty!

A lovely building that looks old but is actually fairly new. Rooms are large and the bedding is cozy. Location is close to shops, cafés and a great waterfront trail. Suggest you ask for a room facing the water which would be much nicer than the street view. There was no fridge in the room and breakfast would be improved with better pastries. Good coffee available all day in the library was a plus. Overall I would stay again.

Fairhaven is located in Bellingham, Washington. A small village atmosphere with bookstores, unique shops and dining, walking trails by the water, friendly people. Fairhaven Village Inn is in the heart if it all. Holidays in the village take you to a more gentle time in life, especially during the winter season. Bundle up, take a carriage ride, find that special gift. Enjoy!

I recently spent 2 nights at the Fairhaven Village Inn and wish I never left! The hotel is in the most perfect location, it was spotlessly clean, the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful and the suite we booked was huge!! The Inn truly provides a bespoke experience, everything from warm cookies on the reception desk to welcome you back after a day exploring the town, soft quality bed linens, knowledgeable staff, freshly cooked waffles for breakfast and coffee cups to go....every detail is looked after.

Thank you for an incredible stay, we will most definitely be back!!

I would also highly recommend Daphne's Bar which is right next door....classic, old school bar with tons of character plus Libby makes the most amazing cocktails!! Try the Old Fashioned!

Room Tip: Book a room that faces the square and if you can book the suite!

Our room was very large and well furnished. It felt very elegant and reflected the "period" of the hotel and historic district. Parking is free, the beds are very comfortable and the price is quite reasonable. They also serve a continental breakfast which is very adequate. Clsoe to shopping and restaurants as well.

This is the second time I have stayed here. The Inn staff are very helpful, the rooms are huge and well appointed, and the location is great, except for the train nearby whose nightly loud warnings would startle me awake. The breakfasts were ample and the coffee was good. The chocolate chips cookies at the front desk were a special treat after walks in the wind and rain.

Room Tip: We were on the market square side and the trains were still very audible at night.
