Our group of 12 was celebrating a 50 yr nursing school reunion. Mary (owner) was great at handling our questions and making our stay pleasant both before and during our visit. The property is simply beautiful - set back in the woods. away from the sights and sounds of all but nature - even though it is only minutes from town, if you need anything at all! I cannot speak for anyone who might reserve only one room or two. But for a large group it was perfect to spread out, relax and not bother anyone, as with a normal hotel or B+B! This IS a house in the woods that is not lived in on a daily basis. Therefore, be aware that there MAY be the occasional critter or spider! (All normal!) And there is the minor annoyance of dampness and some mildew smell, especially in the lower level. Overall the house was very clean and well-kept. It's not new or "fancy", but was quaint and decorated, in every nook and cranny,with items in line with the owner's taste. We enjoyed checking everything out! It was perfect for our group and several of our party said they wished we could come back again. Thanks, Mary!
I was so looking forward to a "girlfriends getaway"special in October at the Lodge at Fair Oaks. It had been a stressful, exhausting year for me and I needed to get away for a couple days. Then a family emergency came up and I was forced to cancel my reservation short of the 2-week limit.However, the owner, Mary Fotheringham,was gracious enough to refund half of the total amount I had paid.This meant a lot to my husband and I and spoke volumes for the attitude of the owners.It showed us they had a heart and cared for the welfare of their customers.Also, it fostered good will and left us with a desire to schedule with them again one day. perhaps we can! the Lodge looks like a beautiful place in which to relax and leave one's worries behind.
