We had a wonderful stay at the Fairview Inn in their Spanish Suite. We chose it as a suitable location for a mid way stop for our drive from Memphis to New Orleans. The room was fantastic, we loved the Jacuzzi in the room and then stroll around the beautiful grounds, oh and the bed was oh so comfy. Would definitely make it a stop next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: Spanish Suite was fantastic!

Absolutely beautiful, classy B&B. Southern charm, excellent full breakfast with price of room, very reasonable rates, library, pool table/game room, elevator that's original to the house, computer room (free) with printer, a 5-star restaurant (Sophia's) in the house itself, landscaped gardens, gazebos, decks, close parking. Comfortable rooms with fire places and a variety of furnishings and bathroom styles to choose from. Complimentary teas, coffees, snacks, desserts, wine glasses, ice machine, and an "honor" bar. Flat screen TVs, robes, and high-end bathroom toiletries available for use or purchase. I will be back for sure.

My wife and I stayed at the Fairview Inn at the end of April. The property was just as described as a five dot B&B. Our room was very comfortable and quiet . There was even a wedding going on upstairs, but we did not hear any of the noise from the wedding. Great property at a great value.

My husband and I stayed here one night as we traveled along the Natchez Trace parkway. Truly a lovely home from a bygone era. Excellent service, nice breakfast.

We stayed at this beautiful Georgian Bed and Breakfast for Parent Weekend at Millsaps College which was conveniently located across the street. We stayed in the "Third Floor Suite". The decor was period in a black and white toile. The lighting was adequate, although one of the bulbs in the bathroom was burned out. One of the ceiling fans had a blade that was "hanging on by a thread" and since the room was not cooled when we arrived we tried turning on the fans. My husband had to tighten the one screw that was left in the blade so that it would not scrape, or fall off as we used the fan. The room did become comfortable after running the air conditioner for a couple of hours.

The beds were comfortable but unfortunately this room overlooks the stairwell which has the lights on 24/7. Although there were louvers with one thickness of fabric over the windows that overlook the stairwell, when we turned the lights out for the evening the room remained more than a little illuminated which made it difficult to sleep.

One of the rocking chairs in the room had an arm that was about to fall off and there were extension cords strategically placed around the room that were a tripping hazard. A nice young lady took us to our room and did state that there was a kitchen with complimentary coffee, tea, snacks and cookies and when we came back from an evening out she would be happy to show us where this was.

The common areas of the house were beautiful. I would probably return, maybe stay in a different room the next time around.

Thank you for bringing to our attention the details you mentioned during your recent visit. I apologize we overlooked the loose fan blade and temperature setting. This should have been caught on our inspection of the room prior to your arrival.Thanks to your comments we have ordered drapes to complement the shutters and provide the necessary blackout required for a good nights sleep. In addition, we have scheduled our electrician to add additional receptacles and completely do away with the extension cords in the room. We appreciate your kind feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to the Fairview.
