“Cannot do better”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Beautiful inn, fabulous restaurant, gracious folks! And for no reason we could discern, had our accomodations upgraded to one of their luxury suites. You would be hard pressed to find a better place to dine or rest your weary head in Jackson. Kudos to Peter and Tamar Sharp on their fine establishment. (This property is is on the National Register of Historic Places and has received many awards and been recognized by numerous publications as an outstanding inn.)

Room Tip: Their website is well-designed and the room descriptions and pictures are particularly helpful.

I swear i said the words "this is so cute" maybe 100 times! STUNNING house, amazing bedrooms that make you want to re decorate your entire house, great amenities and the restaurant inside is beautiful. The staff were great and so accommodating of our baby. Before I arrived I felt it was a little pricey but when you see the house you will understand!! So worth it, a must for anyone traveling n the area and perfect for romantic getaway!

We had stayed in a great old hotel in Jackson but alas it was closed.
We found Fairview by accident and were we pleased.
We have a dog and what a room they had for us.
Dog kennel, water dish, dog bed and even great reading for our baby!
The room was plush and cheery
The bathroom was spectacular.
The only issue was check in.
When you enter the main entrance you have no idea where to go.
We were directed to an office and than to a closet to print out our reservation. Not very classy nor befitting the charm and attention to detail that exists elsewhere in this establishment
We will be back

We recently stayed at the Fairview Inn. Our experience was beyond our expectations to say the least. We arrived at night and the place was beautiful all lit up. Easy check in and have a kitchen open to have a piece of homemade cake and coffee. Other beverages , fruit, fresh baked cookies were available round the clock ...no charge. We stayed in the Greek suite with the sun room and it was great for an early riser to sit in and read or catch up on work and let your spouse sleep in. Breakfast was amazing to say the least.. The New Orleans Cajun Crawfish Eggs Benedict was out of the world: Service was impeccable and the staff so friendly. Would definitely stay again. Very convenient to most all in Jackson. Drove to Vicksburg to see battle ground and had an excellent BBQ at Chimneyville BBQ. You must try the pecan pie! Great trip even if it was for business!

Room Tip: Stayed in Greek Suite....very plush and great sunroom.

A comfortable room, friendly people and good food and drink in a very hospitable city near the Natchez Trace. Jackson is filled with very helpful folks. A good biking area. The Trace is a fun ride, easy biking and filled with history.

We got to Jackson a little early and were charmed by Fairview Inn. They got our room ready and showed us around the property. I enjoyed the guest lounge and the pool table on the second floor. Our room was on the second floor and we needed to use the old elevator for our bags. Everything was geared to making us feel at home. We ate in the restaurant that evening and it eas quite good as well. I highly recommend both the Inn and its restaurant.

Room Tip: We stayed in the main building where the rooms are comfortable but reflect the older character of th...

The Fairview Inn is absolutely wonderful! Ellery is guest relations is so helpful, pleasant, and welcoming. The rooms are spacious, well-kept, and beautifully decorated. The bathrooms are huge and fit for a spa. The staff is so amazing. They make you feel like family. The food is delicious! But fit in time for a workout because it is also decadent. I'm only hesitant to write this review because I want to keep this place all to myself! There's nothing negative I can say about this hidden, cozy pocket of southern elegance.

Room Tip: I like the Asian Suite but they are all gorgeous!
