Chuck is a total creep and very, very, rude!. Our bathroom smelled like urine leading me to believe that the throw rugs are not washed after each guest. The room itself "smelled" like an old closet. No cups in the bathroom and only 2 towels. Shampoo in a large decorative bottle with no top! Trying to be "green" ! No...

First, I apologize to this guest for any level of dissatisfaction they experienced here during their stay. I will respond to every part of the review as it is important for any guest that comes here that we exceed their expectation. We failed miserably in this case apparently. We offer quality accommodations and would have addressed any of these issues...

If you are like my husband and I and you are sick of staying at large impersonal hotels, this the place for you. Chuck (the proprietor) greets you when you arrive, cooks you breakfast in the morning and hangs out in the evening around the fire pit. The rooms were adorable and every corner of the house had another interesting...

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 gardens a delight, the antiques interesting, and the overall atmosphere charming. Also, the location is near some...

Wife and I had a marvelous experience. Chuck (the innkeeper) goes to great pains to make sure your experience is what you expect and more. He takes great pride, as he should, in the grounds he immaculately maintains, and the comfort and style of the rooms in this 1904 restored home. I grew up in Hunter and returned for a...

We are glad your return to your home in Hunter was a good one. You must miss the gorgeous scenery and laid back lifestyle you had when you lived here. You and your wife were a great addition to my weekend. I am an honorary member of the class of 1957, having hosted them in 2007 when they celebrated their...

My husband and I lucked out getting a room at the Fairlawn Inn for Mountain Jam. Before we even got to Hunter, NY, Chuck, the Inn Keeper had already provided us with abundance of information about restaurants and attractions in the area. The inn is decorated immaculately and we found our room to be very comfortable and attractive! Each morning,...

I recently returned from my 6th annual Mountain Jam weekend at the Fairlawn Inn and each year never fails to exceed my expectations.

I just spent 3 nights with friends at the Fairlawn Inn. The grounds are beautifully cared for with a myriad of hanging planters, gardens, and landscaping. The outdoor patio, with an open fire pit on those chilly evenings, is set amongst the gardens and provides a peaceful outdoor respite. The breakfasts are created by the owner, Chuck, who is a...
