Guests Reviews

“Wonderful place to stay!”

Reviewed April 30, 2017

The Fairlawn inn is a wonderful place to stay on Hunter mountain.The hosts Chuck and Jim are very welcoming. The atmosphere was friendly. Our room which was the Mountain Dew was clean and nicely decorated. The food was excellent with rave reviews from all the guests staying there. We were there to go to TAP, the NY craft beer and food festival at Hunter mountain and this was an easy walk from the inn. We would highly recommend staying here when visiting the area

“Cozy rooms and great food”

I spent a weekend at Fairlawn in April. The hosts, Chuck and Jim were friendly and accommodating. Breakfast menu has terrific choices. Dinner was excellent. Close to ski slopes, near national park with hiking sites. Hunter is a wonderful weekend escape from New York City.

“A Perfect B&B Getaway at Hunter Mountain”

Reviewed March 30, 2015

My wife and I spent one night at Fairlawn Inn, and were truly overwhelmed by our experience. Every aspect of the property is meticulously kept and beautifully appointed. The breakfast was was both generous and delicious, and clearly a passion of the owner. The location is also wonderful if you’re making use of Hunter Mountain as you’re less then half a mile from the entrance. We would highly recommend this B&B, and will stay at Fairlawn Inn again in the future.

“The best getaway ever!”

I’ve started writing this review a few times now, I just can’t seem to get the words right. This was the BEST get away I’ve had in… well, maybe ever! I decided to take my boyfriend away for his birthday and did a lot of research on Bed and Breakfasts around the NYC. The photos and reviews here were exceptional so I decided to take a chance. I tell you something, I was not disappointed. My expectations were beyond exceeded. We arrived late, and knew we would so Chuck, the innkeeper, had a key waiting for us, with perfect directions leading us to our room, the Rose Room. It was beautiful, and comfortable. We read through the history of the house, and watched a little TV before bed. I slept like a rock. Woke up to the gorgeous autumn mountain side and an AMAZING breakfast. The breakfast was cooked to order, with juice, fruit, and a baked good. The house is gorgeous, pool table, games, sitting room, fountain outside, firepit! It was as cozy, No! Cozier than being at home. Chuck was so helpful, and kind. Matt as well. We were welcomed like family and I really feel like I know them. I honestly can’t wait to go back. And we WILL be back.

“Great B&B experience – Close to Hunter Mtn and Major Attractions”

Chuck at the Fairlawn could not have been more attentive and thoughtful during my visit. Everything was tailored to our needs. Food and drinks delicious. Top marks on the shower pressure and I loved all the luxurious furnishings and carpets. Wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy another delicious breakfast!

“Wonderful escape & best cooking in NY.”

The 1st thing we thought after leaving was “We miss Chuck!” (the Innkeeper at Fairlawn). I cannot express in words how WONDERFUL our stay at the Fairlawn Inn was…the Inn is not only filled with charm & warm touches throughout, Chuck, makes certain you are attended for and have the best gourmet food in NY (all homemade by him :). From breakfast to lunch to the most creative dinners. All with such flavor. 5 star restaurants in the City have nothing on him 😉 We stayed in the Rose Room and loved every part of our stay. It may have been 3 degrees outside, but we were so comfortable and cozy inside, there was no need to step outside. Great corporate retreat spot for a leadership team to plan, strategize & refresh!!! – Lily

“Absolutely the BEST”

Reviewed June 24, 2012

We had a great stay at the Fairlawn, in the beautiful and comfortable Opal Room. It is large, airy and well decorated. The claw foot tub in the bathroom was a great experience. Chuck is a dedicated Innkeeper. His breakfasts are amazing, the garden’s a delight, the antiques interesting, and the overall atmosphere charming. Also, the location is near some great hiking trails and small towns with good restaurants. Hunter is an excellent location in the heart of the Catskills. Our stay far exceeded our expectations. Thank you, Chuck, for making us feel at home.

“Excellent food and service.”

Stayed for 1 night in February to ski and celebrate an anniversary. We had snow overnight and when we woke up, our car had been cleared of snow for us. Breakfast was exceptional, fresh fruit, coffee, and muffins accompanied the menu. The proprietor was friendly and chatted with us after he was done cooking.

“Gorgeous Victorian & Generous Host”

Reviewed June 21, 2014

Chuck is a generous host who provides a large, cooked-to-order breakfast with an unusual number of choices for a B&B. There are three rooms to lounge in downstairs, with a pool table in one and a stocked snack bar in another. Exceptionally beautiful grounds, lush and green, and full of flowers. The location is perfect for hiking, skiing, and restaurants. People who choose B&Bs are seeking the individual and unusual, and Fairlawn Inn is a large Victorian with original woodwork and built-ins, ornate Arts-and-Craft movement wallpaper, and an interesting and eclectic mix of antiques and artwork.

I stayed at Fairlawn Inn during my skiing trip to Hunter Mountain; I must say that I didn’t expect it to be SO good! The house itself is a beautifully restored Victorian mansion, and Chuck, the Innkeeper, did such a beautiful job with its interiors! Everything felt so welcoming, the living areas and the dining room with its beautiful ferns close to the windows. the bedroom and bathroom were really comfortable with really good linens and plenty of pillows and seating space, and a very comfortable closet, dvd player and wi-fi, shampoo, conditioner and soap dispenser. On top of it this a a ‘Green’ Inn where care is taken on the natural resources. I can’t even describe how good the breakfast was, with homemade preserves and organic ingredients, and a menu to pick from hot dishes cooked at the moment by the Inn keeper! This is a really chic place to stay!

“So enjoyed our stay!”

Reviewed January 26, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Fairlawn with our co-workers on a staff retreat. Chuck pretty much treated us like royalty with his amazing home-cooked meals and friendly conversation. Since we had the house to ourselves, it was very homey, inviting and cozy. We loved sitting by the fireplace for our meetings. Our room was enjoyable and perfect for just the two of us. Because it is an old house you can hear some creaks but we turned on some white noise using an app from the iPhone and got great sleep. Loved the views and location as well. Just can’t say enough about how amazing the food was as well! Thanks Chuck!!–Jenn & Joel Collins, Oasis Church

“Chuck is pretty cool! the Fairlawn is great!”

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed a snowboarding weekend stay at his bed and breakfast. The breakfast was delicious, the hospitality was top notch and it was very clean…a biggie for us, and most importantly we felt as if we were visiting a relative; not staying w/ a stranger. Chuck was knowledgeable about the area and to my boyfriend’s delight and art aficionado. To both of our delight he appreciates interior design and has an original aesthete. Our room was warm and the beds were a-ok; we slept fine. We highly recommend this place if you are planning a stay in the Catskills region and you appreciate attention to detail.

“Look no further”

This past June, I assisted my father in traveling to the Hunter/Tannersville area to attend a class reunion. While my father stayed in a nearby house with classmates, I had the pleasure of a room at the Fairlawn. As you can see from the pictures, the building and grounds are beautiful. During the days, the cozy and cheerily appointed room gave me the quiet I needed to get some work done (totally solid WiFi), then join my father to socialize in the evenings. Chuck, the owner/proprietor, was polite and thoughtful in making sure that I had everything I needed. My only regret was not making it to breakfast more than once (jet lag + other obligations). If I again make this trip with my father, there’s no doubt I’ll find myself back at the Fairlawn.
