“This is an Awesome place”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

My fiance and I went here for our first away date and we loved the place. We have been back many times since. We have become regulars there and we are having our wedding there this August. Chuck the owner has been fantastic in helping us plan everything. Every time we go there we meet more nice people. And we have managed to stay in touch with some of them. This is truely a magical place. The gardens are beautiful as are the rooms. This is a charming old Inn in a very pretty part of the country. Hanging out around the fire pit at night is a great way to get to know other guests. Chucks breakfasts are always delicious and he has a way of coming up with new ideas all the time.

Room Tip: We have stayed in most of the rooms I can't say which is my favorite they are all great.

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 piece of decor to look at.

If you are looking for something luxurious, this is not the place. The rooms are not huge, but nicely decorated. Additionally, if this is important to you, the Inn is very "Green". You won't get soaps to take home and add to your collection, there is a dispenser in the shower. (much better in my opinion, I have enough of those little soaps)

In conclusion it was a charming inn in the mountains that I would love to go back to.

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 great hiking trails and small towns with good restaurants. Hunter is an excellent location in the heart of the Catskills. Our stay far exceeded are expectations. Thank you, Chuck, for making us feel at home.

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 45th high school reunion! This was so memorable in that I remember this home long before it was a B and B and even knew, quite well, the family that summered here!
Oh yes, we had omelets specially prepared by Chuck that were just out of this world.
A must stay..........

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 50th. Many returned this year and came to visit and tour the garden and house to see any changes. Thanks for the compliments and we hope you will visit many times more.

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, Chuck cooked breakfast to order from a small menu which featured daily, seasonal specials. The breakfast was soo good, especially the scones that we made sure we were at the table on time every morning. Chuck also put out snacks for the taking as well as fresh baked goods nightly when we returned from the mountain. I was also very impressed with Chuck's efforts to run a green inn. Make sure to check out Chuck's antique store across the street, we bought a hope chest, and he helped us with tools to break it down to make it fit in the car. Overall, we couldn't have asked for more from the Fairlawn Inn, and have already decided to go back for our anniversary!

We are glad there was room at the inn to share in your honeymoon. We have a great Mountain Jam weekend every year and are glad you re-booked for next year. Thanks for the patronage, the compliments and see you again in June of 2013.
