You love antiques, but you do not want the rooms to feel ‘old’. You want a warm room in winter, a cool room in summer, a good breakfast, space for your luggage, an iron and ironing board, a hairdryer, a small fridge, good quality coffee in your room, a firm mattress, percale linen, good quality pillows - that is essential. At Fairview Historic Homestead you’ll find all of that and more...

We embraced the restoration of this historic George landmark – bearing in mind that the challenge in restoring and maintaining an heritage property remains staying true to the authenticity of the structure. We are so thankful that the grounds remained large enough to give the house a garden it deserves too.

Go to the Bedrooms page for detail and photos. Go to Check Availability to see rates or get a quote.
