We have been fans of this winery and Inn for some years now and we made a return visit
since the remodel and change of ownership. Honestly, we did not know what to expect, but
we went with an open mind hoping to find the same charm. I will say that the room rates are
higher so that they can pay for the nice remodel, but we were pleasantly surprised with this experience. We stayed in a room that we had been in before but now it was much nicer. The bathroom was lovely and the decorations and furniture were done in good taste with attention to detail. Bathrobes and slippers were provided. The window seat is a lovely treat to sit and enjoy the vineyard views. The bed was quite comfortable and it was a wonderful night sleep. The rooms are very clean and pleasant with ceiling fans, small fireplace unit and good heating and air. All upstairs rooms have great individual patio decks with nice outdoor furniture to sit and relax soaking up the vineyard view or gazing at the night stars. The second floor common area provides a nice TV with sitting area, but we were not bothered by any noise at all. Our visit was just one month after the departure of the previous owners so the new owner/managers need to work a few kinks out. We did have to wait quite a long time for a sandwich we ordered for lunch out on the deck. It was an average sandwich and nothing to really brag about. On the other hand our breakfast experience was very good. The morning meal is served at a beautiful table overlooking the vineyard in the large living room/reception area. Coffee is available at the bar starting at 7am. The living room also provides a small refrigerator with bottled water, tea and soda that guests are welcome to have at any time, along with afternoon goodies (candy and brownies). It is nice to have refrigeration space for doggy bags after dinner or other items you need to keep cold. The staff will fix an assortment of nice breakfast selections including egg dishes with almost any ingredient you prefer, along with French toast, chicken sausage, fresh fruit, juices and coffee. Our breakfast was served promptly and was nice and hot. There is a hot tub on the view deck and pool for guest use, although we did not use either one on this trip. We found the owners to be friendly and kind to us and they admitted that they have much to learn. The view from this place was still as wonderful and this is a great place to soak in the beauty of this area while enjoying local wines from this region. They have a darling, friendly dog who walked through the vineyard with us as if he were the local guide. The paved front parking area provides close spots for Inn guests and the property has a security gate that is closed in the evening hours providing access only for guests of B & B. I think this is still a special place and we will likely return again. Please note that Fairplay is a very small and quiet community with not many spots for goods for services. There is a Pub close by and a pizza place, but not much else.
