Fairhaven Village Inn
1200 10th Street
Every day 7:00 AM - 10:00 PM
Given Fairhaven’s brick buildings circa the late 1800s, it’s hard to imagine a brand new hotel fitting into this historic neighborhood. But the Fairhaven Village Inn, which opened in 1999, does so very well and even seems to complement its surroundings. The charm of Inn comes from its combination of old-fashioned style with ritzy modern amenities. You get the big contoured bathtub, scented lotion and grapefruit soaps, all the cable channels you could want, gas fireplace and plush bathrobes in the closet. But you also get Victorian era furnishings, antiques, and big cushy chairs.
That the Village Inn is located in Fairhaven is reason enough to spend a night or two at the new hotel. Fairhaven has a weekly Farmers Market right across the street from the hotel. Nearby are shops and restaurants, access to the waterfront, bay views, and in summers, outdoor movies, also across the street. A few blocks west is the Amtrak train station, making a stay at the Village Inn an easy car-less weekend getaway from Seattle.
The Fairhaven Village Inn has made an effort to accommodate different kinds of guests, including the little ones that some hotels shun. Children under 12 stay free. The Inn also allows guests with small pets, for an additional $20 per day. Rooms are large and could easily be used for the business traveler, with a nice writing desk and computer outlet. The "Fairhaven Room," which holds 25, can be reserved for conferences. A continental breakfast that includes local Tony’s Coffee and fresh fruit is also included in the room price. If you have time, consider taking the worthwhile Fairhaven Historical Walking Tour. Brochures are available in the lobby.
From Fairhaven, follow Harris Avenue west toward the water and turn right onto 10th Street. The hotel is just ahead on your left. Free parking is available in back.
