Haunted Stay with the Ghost in the Attic

Guests frequently extend their stay at the Fairview Inn, but none have loved it here quite as much as "Richard" the Civil War confederate who has taken up residence in the Fairview Inn's Third Floor Suite, which was actually part of the attic in the original house. Richard is quite the mischief maker and has been known to tease housekeeping by moving mops & buckets around and making sure his presence is known. 

 “We don’t like cleaning the Third Floor Suite,” says housekeeper Lillie Washington. “Immediately walking up the stairs, the hair on your arm stands up and you get an eerie feeling."

Although he is quite the little trouble maker, Richard is harmless and keeps his haunting quite simple. The Fairview Inn was built in 1908 so it can only be assumed that Richard has been here for over 100 years and must have taken up residence shortly after the home was built. 

Whatever his reason for deciding to stay with us might be, we don't mind. He keeps things interesting as far as we're concerned, however he has been known to keep the occasional downstairs guests awake at night. 

"Sometimes the guests staying in the room below the attic will call me and complain about the guests above them stomping around and ask if we'll get them to keep it down...I don't like to tell them that there isn't anyone staying in the room above them" says Guest Services Manager Ellery Stricklin.

Spa Day. Two of a woman's favorite words to hear, right? 

Better yet, how about a weekend get away with a little spa action? With the holiday season right around the corner, your mind and body could use a break to mentally prepare for the craziness of the upcoming season, trust us. 

1. It's a weekend at the Fairview Inn...need I say more? Let someone else clean the room and make the bed while you sit back and enjoy the Fall weather and have a cocktail in The Library Lounge.  

2. The Fairview Inn has a full service nomiSpa on site to help soothe all your cares away.

5. The Fairview Inn is a pet-friendly facility, so if the boarding fees are making you worries, just pack fido a leash and bring 'em with you!
