I stayed for 2 nights in November during a 21 night road trip, which included 4 ‘heritage’ properties, so this review is relatively objective. Easily found on the outskirts of town. Plenty of parking. Lovely classic location, well set back from the road. Beautiful old house which has been sympathetically maintained, but has lost non of its rich character. The Inn Keeper, Cheryl, was a delight and so helpful. My large, old school bedroom was perfect. Clean, well equipped and comfortable. The air con was of the old fashioned ‘floor vent’ from a central unit type - seemed effective enough. Lovely high ceiling, boarded floor etc Good breakfast standard, with eggs cooked to order if required. A good base for exploring the surrounding area - I only intended to stay for the one night, but enjoyed the ambiance so much stayed for two. Highly recommended…
An absolutely beautiful house... The manager, Cheryl, is just wonderful. Pleasant, cheerful, very helpful. She was a joy to get to know. the house is wonderfully decorated and the front porch rockers look out onto one of the shadiest front lawns I've seen in years. great place for an evening cocktail and chatting with friends. Strolling the town main street in the evening is a treat with the antebellum street lights in full glow.
If you love old historical houses and furniture, the house and furniture alone are worth the trip from New Orleans to Franklin. Once there of course there is much more to explore in the vicinity. I was there on business and wanted to be close to the courthouse. It was about 1/2 mile away. The innkeeper was wonderful and thought of my every need, including providing instructions for Wi-Fi and bottled water for my journey home.
My wife and I took a little getaway to this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. It was such a relaxing and enjoyable experience. The house is gorgeous and the innkeeper was very kind and friendly. She makes you feel like you are at home with family. The Jacuzzi was wonderful the room was very clean and pleasant. I highly recommend this place. Its only about 30 minutes from Lafayette and the price is very affordable.
We recently had the opportunity to host our family prior to our wedding at the Fairfax House. Our innkeeper, Cheryl, was incredible. Our every need was met and some needs she met without us even realizing that we had a need! The rooms were beautifully appointed and comfortable. And the food! Did I mention that Cheryl is an incredible cook? Our weekend at the Fairfax House was just perfect and would highly recommend this B&B to everyone. Helpful hint #1: There are two rooms available downstairs for folks who don't wish to go up and down the stairs. Helpful hint #2: Fairfax House is pet-friendly!
