This was a very nice historic home that was well kept. The people working there were very nice and sociable. The room was lovely, well decorated and comfortable. The proximity to Longwood Gardens was ideal, as well as being close to the Dupont Museum, Wyeth Museum and being close to Wilmington. The property is large for a typical B&B and quite relaxing. The breakfast was very good and we would definitely stay there again.
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely inn although I suspect we suffered from the ravages of hurricane Irene. The room had a bit of a mildew odor and the grounds were too soggy to walk around much. The furnishings were well chosen and the staff was friendly although not extremely knowledgable. The location is ideal for a visit to the many brandywine valley attractions and fine dining in Wilmington. The breakfast was adequate although not overly exciting.
The Fairville Inn is a charming spot. Owners Rick and Laura go out of their way to make guests comfortable, and their breakfasts are outstanding. The inn itself has numerous options for rooms, including beautiful spaces with outdoor decks and fireplaces. The grounds are lovely whether you are walking about or simply looking out from a cozy spot inside. Highly recommended!
The Fairview Inn is a great place to stay. I loved the decor, and cleanliness of our room. The house is very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious, every morning you could choose from a selection of baked goods, cereal, fruit or a three choice selection of hot entrees or both. The afternoon tea served delicious homemade goods for your enjoyment. The staff were helpful and friendly. As far as location you are close to restaurants and sites. We were there when hurricane Irene arrived and Rick & Laura were very accommodating to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
Despite the ravages of Hurricane Irene, our experience at the Fairville Inn was quite good. Rooms were large and very comfortable, location was incredibly convenient to the various destinations in the Brandywine Valley, and the innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. I'm not one to appreciate extravagant hot breakfasts, so you'll need to read others' comments about that, but the cereal, baked goods, and fresh fruit were more than sufficient for me. Very important - the Inn employs many college students to help with its administration, and all of them were very friendly and proficient.
