The Fairlawn Inn's public rooms are very beautiful and well-maintained and lend themselves to a pleasant and jovial setting with a lovely blend of antiques and modern decor. The breakfast room is charming and the breakfasts are superb.
Our disappointment was with our accommations:
The skirt on the box spring had some kind of milky residue on it which I did not want to speculate too much on how it got there.
The bathroom rugs looked like they needed to be washed; only one bath towel was provided for each individual and the pedestal sink left no room to place your personal items.
The bed comforter also looked like it needed a good cleaning and the pillows were wafer thin.
A drawer in the cupboard contained another person's underwear - another sign that the rooms were not taken care of very well.
It might also be a good idea to get rid of the dirty plastic flowers on the fireplace mantle.
Don't expect to sleep if the person in the room above you stays up late - woke up at 1:00 AM to the sounds of people moving about in the room upstairs; running water and dropping things until 2:30 AM.
The host, Chuck, could be charming but was, in many cases abrupt and rude. The breakfast waitress could also use some lessons in hospitality.
Summarized: if you hang out in the public rooms you will be very happy with this Inn. However, that's where the charm and beauty of this Inn ends.
