Our stay at the Fairholm Historic Inn was near perfect. They could not have done a better job of restoring this inn...the rooms were grand and just beautiful. The hot breakfasts prepared for guests each morning were very good and the staff was very friendly and helpful with questions abut the area. Unfortunately, the one thing that would keep us from returning would be the mattress in our room, the Lucietia Starr Suite. It was probably the hardest mattress we've ever slept on and wasn't very easy on our backs. I didn't see the point in complaining as I assumed all the rooms would have had the same mattress, and as we were only staying 3 nights we just decided to tough it out. Other than that, it was probably the nicest place we've ever stayed, and the air conditioner in our room was a godsend as it was extremely hot and humid during our stay! I'm not sure if the inn takes guests' suggestions but we would like to offer just two...it's such a nice gesture to set out fresh baked goods for guests later in the day, but this time of year it's impossible to keep fruit flies at bay...a clear glass or plastic dome should really be put over the baked goodies to eliminate the problem as we noticed a fruit fly on the cookies in the front foyer one day. I mentioned it to the owner who happened by but nothing changed in their display. Also, mentioning the very hot and humid weather during our stay, leaving tea and coffee out for guests throughout the day is a lovely idea, but the coffee cream really can't sit out all day without refrigeration....my husband added some to his coffee one evening and it had curdled. It was also curdled the next morning at breakfast. Apologies for sounding like nitpickers but we both work in the food service industry and it's hard not to notice things like this that are easy fixes. The Fairholm is such a beautiful spot that it would be a shame for anyone not to have a perfect experience there. Just as an afterthought to future guests who are interested, we were happy to see that free Wifi was offered but were disappointed to find that the signal strength in our room was only strong by the suite's entrance, and was too weak elsewhere in the room to use our tablet.
