We stayed 2 nights at Marin Manor and the private room was beautiful and comfortable. Pamela was a gracious host. The room (s) were very clean and she brought in a lovely breakfast each morning. There is private parking and walking distance to Fairfax.
Very comfortable and hospitable place. Thank you, Pamela.
Pamela was incredibly helpful, very attentive and I absolutely loved the space! Everything flowed beautifully during my stay and I would highly recommend this as a wonderful place to visit!
Pamela's solarium suite is just as beautiful in person as it is in the photographs.
She is a welcoming hostess to make you feel comfortable and relaxed.
I would recommend it to anyone who is considering staying in Fairfax.
We could not have asked for a better room, house, neighborhood, or town. We parked the car in the driveway and left it (except for a quick jaunt to the coast for a sunset walk on the beach). We walked to downtown Fairfax where there was always something going on... an adventure film festival and Irish music festival on the weekend we were in town. We really went to Fairfax for the biking and were not let down. Great trails accessible from the doorstep. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Location, location, location. It allowed us to relax and worry about what we wanted to do rather than how we were going to get there.
In regards to 'the window'. It is not a window but a small, fixed, solid piece of glass aligning with the above ceiling which is 11 ft. high, such as a skylight. It affords a nice light that comes in from above. The bathroom is beautiful but has no windows so when we restored the house we thought this would be a good feature. Never had a complaint until now. The "other side of the glass" is a small pantry connected to my kitchen. :)
This place is a real gem!! We felt very lucky to stay here. It was absolutely ideal. Beautiful, comfortable, classy, perfect location. Pamela is a very hospitable and responsible host who bends over backward to make her guest's stays amazing. Really could not be happier.
