“Great breakfast and great host”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2012

Traveling with my best friend and her Mom for a celebratory birthday weekend, Ellen, the owner couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. Ellen and her husband Wesley are two of the kindest people I have ever met and Ellen does everything she can to make you happy when you stay at the inn. This includes meeting everyone's dietary needs as I'm a vegan, sharing recipes bringing down home made cookies, and sharing helpful information about the town. She's a fantastic cook and the vegan breakfasts both days were so good I asked for the recipes.

At the Inn, we had the green room and the red room and the accomodations were beautifully appointed with everything we needed in them from a hairdryer, mini-refrigerator, to shampoo and body wash in the bathroom. The location is very convenient and the kitchen is stocked with bottled water, tea and coffee. You do have to walk up two doors to the Manor Inn for breakfast and for us that was no problem. If we go back, I think I would get a room at the Manor Inn next time, but they were already booked for our weekend.

Room Tip: The green room has an incredible shower.

I've stayed in quite a few B&B's, and this is by far my favorite. Ellen, the owner, and her husband Wesley are two of the kindest people you can meet, and Ellen does everything she can to make you happy when you stay at the inn. This includes bringing over DELICIOUS home made cookies (we got peanut butter chocolate the first day and truly inspired lavender short bread the second), making sure everyone's dietary needs (I'm a vegetarian, and there were also vegans staying at the inn) were met, sharing recipes, and just generally being friendly and warm and lovely. She's a fantastic cook. The inn itself is lovely. My friend and I stayed in the attic suite, which is beautifully decorated and comfortable. I definitely plan on coming back to Berkeley Springs, and I will definitely stay here again. I honestly can't say enough good things about this place.

Room Tip: The attic suite is adorable, but all the rooms seem quite nice.

This is the nicest inn that I have stayed at...and I've stayed at a lot. The owner of The Manor Inn,
Ellen is also managing this inn, Inn on Fairfax. She is an absolute delight. Friendly and easy going. It is like meeting a new best friend. The rooms and inn are perfectly decorated. The inn is only a two block to the heart of Berkeley Springs and yet it is very quiet. So nice to be able to walk to dinner and a movie. Well stay again. Helen M.

Room Tip: The Red Room is two rooms, one room has a queen bed and the porch has a twin bed.

Traveling with 4 women (2 teenagers and their moms), we booked 2 rooms here. This property is being run by the very friendly owner of the Manor Inn just a few doors up the street, who provided us with the most luscious breakfasts, catered to the individual tastes of various members of our party, and shared recipes and a wealth of information about the town, "taking the waters", nearby restaurants, and places to hike.
Our rooms were very pleasant and tastefully decorated, but there was a lack of attention to detail. In our room, the Red Room, there was no latch on the bathroom door and no curtain on the glass door that was the other entry to the bathroom. (we rigged one.). The bathroom was very nicely appointed, though, including two lovely plush robes, and our claw foot tub had fantastic water pressure and was quite luxurious. The Green Room, where the girls stayed, had a lovely rainfall shower, in our room, it was impossible to open any of the windows on the sleeping porch, kind of defeating the purpose. Nor were either of our rooms cleaned during our 2-night stay.
The location was very convenient, there was a very nice kitchen with bottled water, tea, coffee, and home-baked treats available, a living and dining room with the usual type antiques, but truthfully I would recommend staying here only if you can't get a room at the Manor Inn, which was what happened to us.

We recently stayed at the Inn on Fairfax. We were hoping to stay at the Manor Inn which had excellent reviews, however the Manor Inn was full for the night we requested. Ellen, at the Manor Inn suggested we try the Inn on Fairfax. We were concerned because of the less than stellar reviews, Ellen assured us that she would meet us at the Inn, help us with any needs we might have, and we would be having breakfast at the Manor Inn! We had a wonderful stay at the Inn on Fairfax and an exceptional breakfast at the Manor Inn. With Ellen's help, the previous problems have been resolved!

We thought this would be the perfect place to stay for the Apple Butter Festival. Were we disappointed.

The Inn at Fairfax is conveniently located in Berkeley Springs, WV, within a block of downtown, It is an old house on Fairfax Street, just a block up the hill from the Morgan County Courthouse that has been renovated into a "bed and breakfast", However, this facility is not operated like a "bed and breakfast".For breakfast, suite, which is ad to walk over to the Country Inn (the hotel also owned by Nancy) about 4-5 blocks away, which is OK....if you don't want breakfast at the bed and "breakfast" facility. We were told that if we wanted breakfast at the Inn, it would only be served at 9:30 AM, but was a limited breakfast. So, we had to go to the Country Inn for their buffet.


We stayed in the suite, which is a joke. The ceilings are just over 6 feet high. I am 6'1" and felt like I was on one of the "Little People" shows, constantly having to bend over. The suite, only has a double bed, in which is impossible for 2 people to sleep. The floors were gritty, and the bathroom didn't have a stand on which to place toiletries. It had only a claw-tooth bathtub.......no shower.

This facility had no wi-fi internet. The TV was outdated, the remote was broken. The A/C thermostat was broken, and difficult to operate. I could go on. For the amount of money charged for this suite, we thought we would be treated like royalty. Were we mistaken!! NOT IMPRESSED!! Will never stay there again!!
