My entire family (12 of us, ranging from age 15 to age 72!) stayed at Fairview for a long weekend, and all of us had a wonderful time. It's on the "flipkey" model, so it's self-serve, and we had the entire gorgeous, historic house to ourselves. The teens stayed up on the 3rd floor, which is a truly fantastic space....

Fairview was an awesome experience for our family of four humans and seven canines ... from beginning to end! Booking our reservation was completed with ease, and the price we paid to stay for seven days was fair and reasonable! Before my husband and I agreed to finalize our reservations, I communicated with the owner, Jennifer Kilgore, on numerous occasions....

Jennifer Kilgore (owner of Fairview) is dishonest and unethical. I booked the entire Bed and Breakfast for a four day long weekend in August and she canceled my confirmed and paid for reservation for another group that booked after me but would give her more money for an additional night. Instead of honoring the reservation that came first, she went...

This customer purchased a discount offer on another marketing platform for a special event period, Lockin Festival 2016. We cancelled his reservation in less than 12 hrs following his request, so plenty of time to re-book, and 6 months prior to the actual Festival. We're certain travel plans including flights were booked well in advance, prior to his reservation request....

What a beautiful and unique setting for our first annual work Christmas celebration! The house was absolutely gorgeous and provided plenty of space for our group of 12. From the wonderful service we received from the staff from beginning to end, to the small details including beautiful peacock feathers laid on our bathroom linens, we could not be more pleased...

I booked the cottage for a graduation weekend and put $500 deposit. We e-mailed back and forth and said we would keep in touch. Called two weeks before arrival and was told my weekend was not available. I had forgotten to send final 30 days out but also never got a reminder or request from owner and she rebooked without...

We certainly regret this guest experience, and have tried several times to resolve this issue with a partial refund. This guest booked a May 2015 reservation, and signed a separate, special event lease with a 90 day cancellation clause. May is one of our most requested periods annually, with graduation festivities in the region. We are booked full every May...

I stayed here for a friends birthday weekend. It was amazing-the views are to die for. The B&B had plenty of room in it, was wonderfully furnished and very comfortable. We felt right at home. There are many things to do in the area--we loved hiking at crabtree falls. Would be perfect for a wedding, reunion, friends, or romantic weekend!

We booked the Fairview B&B with Jennifer Kilgore along with our friends in Sep 2014 with reservations for Feb 2015 using an Amazon Voucher. Ms Kilgore charged our credit card a full night stay when we booked. We spoke by phone and email asking for her to reimburse us as the Amazon Voucher was to cover the full stay. We...

We work closely with Amazon and all our travel vendors, to ensure that customers are reimbursed or provided with a credit for cancellations due to weather or other reasons. Fairview remains committed to outstanding guest experiences and outstanding customer service! We truly regret that this potential guest was not able to stay during their requested period. Winter 2014 was a...

Plenty of space for our family of 10, so we really could treat it as a home away from home. Day trip to Crabtree Falls was excellent! Comfortable rooms and plenty to explore outside. The kids loved the peacocks, cats and dogs who hung out too. The upper level rooms were especially popular with the kids! Beautiful!

My fiance and I stayed at Fairview this past November, and we had an absolutely wonderful experience. It was our first time at a B&B, and we couldn't have asked for a better trip!

I had never been to a B&B before Fairview and the experience was wonderful. The hostess (Jennifer) was lovely and clearly cared about each guest that was staying during the weekend we were there. The Fairview is pet friendly and we really enjoyed being able to have our dog with us for the trip. Overall, the scenery, people, and activities...
