Great experience! Friendly and accommodating bed and breakfast! The room was beautiful. Definitely recommend the Pecan Rm with screened in porch. The breakfast spread was delicious! Highly recommend if you are in the Austin area to stay here for an alternative to hotel travel.More

Thanks Jessica! We're glad you found our accommodations accommodating. The Pecan Room with it's private porch overlooking the Live Oak trees is pretty special but some of our other rooms are great alternatives too. Come back to visit us again soon! Jimi & Vivian Ballard...More

The Fairview provides a lovely quiet neighborhood base for exploring Austin,TX. It's close to restaurants and downtown, and provides a comfortable and historic stay with rooms like the Bluebonnet! Helpful and friendly hosts made me feel right at home in the the living areas, garden,...More

Thank you MaryAnn for a lovely review! Our historic neighborhood is special and we're glad it was a good location for you to explore downtown Austin. The Bluebonnet Room is our smallest but some say it is the cutest. Come back to visit again. We'd...More

We normally opt for full service hotel but we selected Fairview for the location ... easy four block walk to SoCo (South Congress - a four/five block area with great food and shops that have an up beat casual vibe). A few minutes more and...More

We spent three nights at the Fairview. The room we stayed in, the Sunday, was spotless, cool, and gorgeous. The grounds were peaceful and lovely. We felt like we were in a Caribbean oasis, yet just a short walk from SoCo. Breakfasts were delicious, and...More

Exactly as the pictures indicate. Spotless, very spacious (our suite had 2 rooms in addition to the very large bedroom and a 2 room bathroom), very quiet and elegant. Located in a residential leafy area 5mn walk from the busy S. Congress area, with restaurants,...More

Thank you Sabine, for that wonderful and not so small review! You stayed in the Live Oak Suite which as you said is quite grand. It's a special treat for couples but also is good for families since it can sleep up to 4 with...More
