We stayed here shortly after they opened. We stayed in the Pecan Room with the screened in porch seen from the front. It was wonderful to wake up and have a leisurely cup of coffee on the porch as well as a romantic nightcap. The building and grounds were beautiful. It is tucked away in a neighborhood so quiet but only a short cab ride to everything downtown. The owners were very nice and live on the grounds in a separate house. The breakfasts they provided each morning were very nice - consisting of hearty healthy food like homemade yogurt, fresh fruit and breads as well a main course. I would highly recommend this B&B for any occasions you might have and look forward to coming back!

Room Tip: The room with the screened in balcony porch is worth the splurge if you want to make your stay extra special.

Thank you very much Thomas!

We really enjoyed having both of you here and are so glad that your weekend at The Fairview was memorable and special. Hopefully we can see you here again, maybe in December 2015? Let us know and we'll chill a bottle of bubbly for you to pop open on the Pecan Room porch.

We celebrated a wedding here with a brunch for about 50 people. Everything was perfect! We booked the entire B&B and the bride and groom even stayed with the family. The owners were very helpful and accommodating and our families raved about the comfort, the food and the service. The bride got ready in the largest room and it was perfect for all of us to gather before the ceremony. The grounds are amazing and there is even space to play croquet which the kids loved. I highly recommend the Fairview!

Room Tip: The website shows all of the rooms.

Thank you for sharing this special event with us! The bride was beautiful, the children were cute, all the guests were thoughtful and everyone seemed like they had fun. We love hosting small, intimate weddings and are really glad we could help your family enjoy this one.

We stayed in the Fairview's Blue Bonnet room for four nights in November. The room was gorgeous - spacious and full of Texan character. Hosts Jimi and Vivian were super-friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great (hello homemade French toast casserole), and the building itself was a beautiful renovated plantation-style house. It's a safe 10 minutes walk to all the fun, shops, bars, music and tacos on South Congress. We'd 100% stay again if we returned to Austin - it's a quintessentially Austin place to stay; unlike a lot of the chains around the 'Dirty Sixth'.

Thank you! We love the French Toast casserole ourselves and we are so proud that you think we are "quintessentially Austin". What a nice compliment. Hope to see you again soon!

We had a wonderful stay at The Fairview. My husband and I brought our two boys, 8 and 5, and stayed in the very spacious Live Oak Suite. The kids each had their own twin bed in the attached library and we slept in the *very comfortable* king bed. The bathroom was huge and newly renovated, with lovely appointments. We also had an attached yoga room that we used every morning for some stretching and light calisthenics with the boys. OK, we may also have shut the kids in there to play video games. There is also a playscape in the garden behind the house, so the boys had an outdoor place to play.

The breakfast featured homemade granola and yogurt with a fresh fruit salad every day. My boys (even the grown up one) were crazy for the candied ginger scones and asked for them to be repeated. The French toast casserole was also a big hit. Viv contacted me ahead of our stay to discuss my 8-year-old's food allergies and served us a delicious menu that was peanut, tree nut and shellfish free and put my worried son at ease.

I was partial to the fabulous espresso machine and the nightly happy hour featuring local wines in front of the fireplace and great conversation with Jimi and Viv. You could not ask for more gracious hosts. They went out of their way to make sure all our needs were accommodated, gave us great advice on where to eat and Jimi even helped us carry our suitcases up the stairs!

The Fairview is right off South Congress in a great neighborhood, so it's close to all the hotspots and easily accessible. It's also only about 20 minutes from the airport. Such a great combination of classy, high end hotel and down home, charming B&B cannot be beat. We will be staying here again the next time we are in Austin.

Thank you so much, Dani! It was wonderful to have you and your whole family here. I'm glad The Live Oak Suite worked so well for the four of you and it was fun to see the playscape get such a workout. As you know, dealing with food allergies is something we take very seriously here. Thank you for trusting us to take care of your son's dietary needs.

Come back and see us when you can!

the fairview is perfect!! Their amenities are comparable to a Ritz or Four Seasons. They are all the upside of a quaint and cozy B & B and all the updates of a 5 star hotel. Breakfast is wonderful and the best tasting gluten free items ever. A must!!

Room Tip: the two rooms on the front are best but the rooms on the back are also good.
