“Cosy, convenient, a real Chucking Cracker”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2007

My girlfriend and I used this as a base for three days skiing, sandwiched between 10 days in NYC. It was a great little get-away, just what we needed after the busyness of NY at Christmas.

Chuck, the owner, was extremely friendly and accommodating - giving us a guided tour on arrival and pointing out all the best places to visit in the town and neighboring towns. We stayed in the Rose room, which was comfortable, reasonably large with rose themed decor everywhere.

Like the other reviews have mentioned, the breakfasts in the fairlawn are amazing. We went for the pancakes and arm maple syrup all three mornings, which were more than enough - add on the fruit, muffin, juice, complimentary cookies, drinks and snacks and you won't go hungry.

Overall I was really happy with my stay at the Fairlawn. Anyone after a quaint place, with a great host can't go far wrong here.

Four of us travelled from the UK to Hunter to go skiing for a few days before heading to New York for New Years Eve. Chuck the owner was fantastic, he had loads of useful information to help us with our stay and even organised our lift passes, booked restaurants and made us feel really welcome (he even gave us a list of places to check out for our stay in New York afterwards). The rooms were really unique, we had a fire in our room and the beds were fantastic - really comfortable with lots of cushions! The breakfasts were very tasty - you had a great choice of the omelettes, eggs etc but i would definitely suggest going for the croissant french toast with cream cheese and fruit compote if its on the menu when you stay !. There were also public rooms with tv (there is also tv in the room), a well stocked games room and a well stocked soft drinks bar complete with snacks and of course the cookie jar - always handy after a trip on the slopes. The local bars and restaurants provided a good range of options and they were all really friendly. To top it all the barber in the town serves Jack Daniels with your hair cut - now thats a tradition my husband would like to bring home ! Overall our stay in Hunter was really enjoyable and i would definitely recommend this inn for anyone looking for friendly and high quality accomodation in the area.

My husband and I just got back from a weekend at the Fairview Inn and it was wonderful. The house is huge and beautifully decorated. We arrived to a courteous girl checking us in and showing us around the house. We stayed in the Rose room and it was a nice size with a Queen bed with a shower bathroom. They have other rooms with clawfoot tubs that I really wanted instead, but we booked too late. The room was quaint, spotless, and there was even bottled water waiting for us. They also had a ton of magazines and local brochures in the room to peruse. We met the owner Chuck and he was very friendly and helped us pick out a place to have dinner. Breakfast the next day was delicious!! I had the goat cheese and herb omelette and my husband had the pancakes, both were out of this world! The inn is located in the center of Hunter and almost right across the street from the ski slope entrance. Windham is about 8 miles away and Tannersville is about 4. After puttering around town for the day, we returned to inn to warm up with the tea/coffee/hot chocolate that was always available in the dining room. There was also a full stocked fridge in other room with sodas, seltzers, and water. A basket full of snacks was always on the bar, and there was even a full cookie jar! The next morning's breakfast consisted of a French toast soufflé and a potato onion gratin. Of course if you didn't want this you could have regular eggs, an omlette, pancakes, etc... To top things off, as we were getting ready to check out my husband went out to warm up the car and came back in to tell me it had snowed over night and Chuck had cleaned off our car. How nice is that?? We had a wonderful relaxing weekend at the Fairlawn Inn and would stay there again the next time we are in Hunter.
