We had seen this Inn on previous trips to the area and decided to try it for a quick get away earlier this week. Our first impression at check-in was very favorable - friendly staff, nicely maintained, clean, conveniently located with ample off-street parking. The room was large with a nice balcony which had a view out to the Sound...

Dear totandem89, Thank you for your candid review. Our location in downtown Fairhaven affords us close proximity to many unique shops, restaurants, beautiful trails, fabulous harbor views and, yes, trains! We are located about a half mile from the Amtrak station and do hear train noise as they pass. Our Parkside rooms face away from the tracks and offer some...

Small village Inns abound in the northeastern United States--many dating from colonial times when people travelled by horse and carriage--but they're rare here in the West, which is why the Village Inn is so special. It IS that kind of Inn, a cozy refuge from the overtly commercial big box chain hotels that line the interstate. Quietly located in downtown...

Adjacent to Fairhaven Village, this comfortable hotel is an ideal place to stay in Bellingham vs. the roadhouses along I-5. The building looks old but is actually new and furnished with antiques and historic touches to give it a romantic vibe. So you have the benefits of new fixtures and HVAC. Friendly and helpful staff. Adjacent to the trail for...

Okay...the only negative I can think to mention is that I hated the pillows. But I loved everything else. Our room was roomy, internet worked great, loved that we had two comfy chairs to sit in front of the gas fireplace, great location to walk to stores and restaurants. Decent breakfast (not stupendous, but better than adequate) and friendly staff....

I have stayed here twice and really like the Fairhaven. It's a small older hotel that has been nicely renovated. The rooms are large, really clean and the beds have nice linens. The railroad is right outside the hotel but the windows must be insulated because the sound has never bothered me. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good internet...

We have stayed at the Fairhaven Village Inn seven times on the past 11 years. It is the best location to walk and enjoy all that is Belingham and Fairhaven. There is a trail from the hotel to Bellingham which is peaceful, beautiful and all along the bay. Restaurants are wonderful and there is a great bookstore and fantastic coffee...

Fairhaven is one of the most charming spots in the Pacific Northwest. This hotel is clean, cosy and comfortable. There are lots of local attractions within walking distance to satisfy your thirst for books, food and wines. Several restaurants offer a 'Happy Hour' menu that represents good value and taste. No surprises, just a great little hotel that cares about...

I really love this hotel. It's perfectly located and incredibly charming -- with cookies at the front desk, a lovely breakfast, and stylish rooms. Right next to the interurban trail, views of the bay, steps to delectable coffee, restaurants, and stores. We now live in Fairhaven and I always put my family and friends up at FVI.

We were very fortunate to get a cancellation at this excellent Inn. We walked in of the street and they had just had a cancellation. We loved the place which is ideally situated for strolling around the Fairhaven district - shops and restaurants. The room we had was large and very comfortable. The breakfast provided in the morning was great....
