There are no words to explain just how Theresa & Bill went "above and beyond" our expectations for our time at the Fairbanks House. Theresa was so knowledgeable on all of our questions before and after our arrival. The overwhelming beauty of the house and grounds greeted us upon arrival.

My wife and I eloped to the Fairbanks House and everything was absolutely perfect. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding day. A big thank you to Bill and Thersea! We can't wait to come back on our anniversary.

Innkeepers Bill and Theresa were outstanding hosts, making various sightseeing arrangements, dinner reservations, and offering many suggestions of things to do or see during our stay based upon our interests. We had a wonderful and relaxing time,...

Being from New York City, my friend and I decided we need a "girl's weekend", someplace different, a place to relax and feel good. Well, we found the Fairbanks, and that was over 10 years ago. We try and get there every other year and we even brought the husbands one year during Shrimp Festival. There are no words to...
