My wife and I had two wonderful nights at the Fairview Manor. From the moment we were welcomed by Gael and Jack and the dogs until we reluctantly had to leave, we felt that we were part of the Family. The Bedroom and the Guest lounge were excellent and the breakfasts very tasty. We will certainly return to enjoy the setting, tranquillity and friendship and would recommend the Fairview to all wanting a true Bed and Breakfast experience in the Woods.

Wow, thank you so much for the brilliant review! We certainly enjoyed your stay and will welcome you both back anytime. We know that we were your "second" choice with Yosemite being closed, but I am glad our redwoods brought you to the beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains. Many thanks again, Gael, Jack, Max and Murphy.

We filled three rooms at Fairview Manor for three nights in July 2013. While we are from the Bay Area, we had family visiting from Colorado, and Fairview Manor was the perfect place to be able to visit in a low-key, homey atmosphere. The beds were extremely comfortable, the food delicious and beautifully presented, the environment was exactly what we had hoped for, and our hosts did everything they could to make us feel welcome and nurtured. Situated amongst the trees, we enjoyed the peaceful surroundings from both the deck out back and the common living area. It was a perfect relaxing spot from the busy wedding activities in the area. We would definitely stay with Gael and Jack again and are already planning our return.

I was looking for a place to stay in Boulder Creek. Ben Lomond is just a few miles down the road and this turned out VERY nice. The place is a residence has has been modified as a B&B. They layout is very nice with a large common room with fireplace, patio and other outdoor sitting areas. The rooms are small and dark, but charming. The bathroom in our room was replete with claw-foot bathtub. Everything was clean. The operators (Gael & Jack) were very friendly. The grounds were enchanting. My wife didn't really want to go anywhere. I can see this would be a fantastic place for a quiet getaway to just enjoy the grounds. They have wine & cheese available all day long. And a home cooked breakfast that was fantastic. My wife has a gluten allergy and Gael baked her some gluten free muffins the day before. Breakfast consisted of an Artichoke Fritata with chicken sausage and a fruit cup. Beautiful presentation and it has taste to match. We WILL come back to this place. It is located off of Hwy-9 so it is quiet, but is still walking distance to Ben Lomond.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Sunflower Retreat and Alcove" room because of the claw-foot tub. I did walk into the Hawaiian Princess room and it would have been my 2nd choice. I didn't view any other rooms.

We thank you for your very kind review and are very happy that you found us! We enjoyed visiting with you and your wife.
As to the darkness of the house, unfortunately being surrounded by Redwoods doesn't help, but during the summer months it is nice to have natural a/c.
The interior of the house was paneled with first growth redwood from the Ben Lomond area, which was a common thing to do in the 1920's.
Thank you again and we look forward to another time when you and your wife can motor on down. All the very best, Gael

Fairview Manor (Gael and Jack proprietors) is built in the midst of towering redwoods with a serene path out the back where one may meander after returning from the days activities. The building was built in the 1920's of local redwood. Quaint appointments. It's an easy drive To Felton to take the train through the red woods to Santa Cruz. There are many eateries near by. We had a great dinner at the OakTree in Felton. If you are at all interested in homesteading, the Mountain Feed and Farm Supply is just around the corner. Allow an hour to browse.
The room was ok. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were not. The house was quiet during the night. Breakfast was plentiful. The sausage was weird and the egg casserole was bland. There were guests there who were, in my opinion, overly demanding. Gael met this with grace and patience and compassion.

Overall a great experience.

This is the best place in the area! I have gone to an annual event near Felton for many years and I have stayed in almost every place on highway nine from Felton to Boulder Creek. I can say that Gael runs the best place around. We stayed there for the second time this year and we were saying "This place is just sooo cute! Can we just live here?"

Room Tip: Ttere are two two bedroom suites near the front door. Great for family travel.
