An exquisite bed and breakfast experience like no other. The breakfast is memorable and the estate is every bit as luxurious as the pictures suggest. Would be a terrific place for a special event or wedding! Service was warm, attentive, and not intrusive. If you haven't heard of Fountainview Mansion.. it is your new hidden gem!
My wife and I stayed at the Fountainview Masion while in Auburn for a reunion. It is a grand and beautiful estate. We loved the furnishings and we were very comfortable in the Kensington Room. Carley English and her husband Patrick are excellent hosts. We enjoyed the breakfast each morning, the homemade cookies and the warm hospitality. It is very peaceful out on the estate but only a few minutes from Auburn's campus. We have already recommended Fountainview to several of our friends and look forward to another stay the next time we are in Auburn.
Absolutely gorgeous bed and breakfast. Carly was a wonderful hostess and the food was amazing. Everything was perfect and we will definitely stay here again. This Mansion stands out from all other bed and breakfasts. You need to check this one out.
We had a wonderful night all to ourselves and the caretaker met all our needs. Very friendly and attentive, we'd definitely recommend staying for a quick getaway. Only recommendation? Hot tub would be a nice addition! :)
Once again the Fountainview was the perfect weekend retreat for our family of nine ( three generations) attending an Auburn football game. The combination of old world charm, superb service from innkeeper Carley, making it "a home away from home" as we spread out and enjoyed the ambiance inside and out. The appearance on Saturday of the holiday decorations was an added bonus. Breakfast was a real treat as well for all ages. Would go back tomorrow if we could!
Thank you so much for the care and attention shown to our son and his new bride when they enjoyed their honeymoon in your incredible mansion! It was the treat of a lifetime for them, and couldn't not have been any better!!!!!!
Always LOVE staying at the Fountainview. It is such a lovely home with large, comfortable, beautifully designed rooms with the little touches like turn down service with hot, homemade cookies that make your stay a secluded retreat from the business of the day.
Our previous stay at Fountainview Mansion was so positive that we planned to stay here on many more occasions. Graduation weekend usually is a frenetic weekend of move out and ceremony, but the literal calm of Fountainview's location and staff made it a beautiful memory. The staff is friendly and always accommodating. When our post-graduation picnic plans hit a road bump and we had to find a plan B they were more than happy to allow us to not only use the patio and grounds, but the kitchen as well. They saved the day and made the day a beautiful memory not only for our daughter, but the 14 other family members. Gorgeous property, friendly staff and a gracious and giving attitude that has won our eternal gratitude. Can't recommend it highly enough!
We stayed only for one night. It was a gorgeous bed and breakfast. We were very tired from packing up our son's dorm room and hoping to come back, shower, and relax in bed watching tv. When I went to restroom I noticed dried blood or something in front of toilet and the checkered time. Seemed odd but thought possibly paint. To my horror as I was getting in shower inside curtain also had stains. Decided to look at toilet closer and the same blood was down front of toilet outside as well that inside of toilet had not been cleaned. Next as we pulled the sheets back there was black specks all in the bed sheets. As it was late (11pm) we chose to clean the bed off with towel and go to bed. In the am we chose not to have the breakfast because we weren't sure how sanitary the inn was after these 2 incidents. We did choose to leave a $20 tip so hopefully the cleaners would feel guilty and actually change the sheets and clean the toilet for the next guests. We won't stay there again.
We stayed at the Fountainview Mansion over Easter 2015. The rooms were large, clean with fine linens and a spacious bathroom. I also appreciated having a walk-in closet. The breakfast was delicious and we especially appreciated the flowers and decorated eggs for Eastertime. Another thoughtful touch was the gift of an Easter bunny for each of our children. We will definitely return!
Clean, organized and professional. Of course, very beautiful. The breakfast's were lovely and tasty. So nice to be spoilt! We loved our time there. We were torn between viewing the area or just staying there. It is a bit out of town, so you had to drive to eat other meals, but that also made it quiet.
One night stay on a Saturday in February-- Valentine's Day actually, though it wasn't planned as part of a celebration -- we just needed a place to stay in Auburn while we explored the trail biking at the Chewacla Park nearby.
Nestled away on a vast property, Fountainview has an old-world feel with new-world comforts. The mansion itself is worth a visit just to walk around, but to stay in one of the rooms and soak in the property is a real treat. We stayed in the Kensington room and it was beautifully decorated with a great view of the front grounds- and you could even see town in the distance. Room felt luxurious without losing its coziness. Breakfast was great- to be honest we thought we'd nibble on a few things but save room for some Cracker Barrell after we left, but it was so good we abandoned Cracker Barrell pretty quickly. While it feels like you're away from the world on the property, it's just a minute from Interstate 85 so you're a very short drive from Downtown Auburn or restaurants and entertainment in Opelika. Really a great and unique spot to stay in the A/O area. Thanks to the staff for great service and a wonderful stay!
My husband and I spent two nights at Fountainview (11/7 and 11/8/14) and were so pleased with our choice. We got to meet other people who were staying there, which was nice. The property is gorgeous. We stayed in The Balmoral Room and it was very comfortable and clean. Jason was a terrific host and the breakfast offered something for everyone - eggs, biscuits, yogurt, fruit, sausage, bacon, juice...I'm probably forgetting something because it was quite a spread! A coffee pot was in our room as well so that we could get the day started prior to going down to breakfast. Driving into Auburn for the game was very convenient from this location. Amazingly, everyone we talked to at the tailgate was oblivious to this place. Shhhhh...don't tell anyone else because we want it all to ourselves!
As usual, Jason completely delivered outstanding service and hospitality. We needed a conference room for our daughter's post-graduation get together and, despite a totally packed facility (16 Tiger Paw cheerleaders were having their training camp on-site), Jason came through for us like a champion! Our stay was wonderful and we are looking forward to enjoying this welcoming atmosphere in the near future!.
My daughter and I stayed at The Fountainview Mansion during a recent college visit to Auburn University. We were thrilled with the room, service and overall experience we enjoyed and wish we could have stayed longer. Jason was a wonderful inn keeper and made us feel quite at home. I have told many friends and some of the locals we met at Auburn about this wonderful treasure and will definitely plan to stay there on any future visits.
I have been to resorts around the world and this place simply blew everything else out of the water. Everything about the grounds and the mansion itself is breathtaking! The level of personal assistance and creature comforts offered are unmatched. Excellent value for the level of perfection this establishment offers!
When considering an overnight stay in or around Auburn, AL you would be wise to invest your money securing any one of the rooms offered at Fountainview Mansion. For nearly the same amount of money as an ordinary hotel room you'll surely be rewarded with sensory overload as you tour the magnificent spaces made available to you when choosing to stay at Fountainview. A wonderful and refreshing night's sleep awaits on a Stearns and Foster mattress and the breakfast provided by Jason the innkeeper is truly five stars. Thank you Jason for treating us like royalty while staying in the Buckingham suite at Fountainview--it was by far a great experience and is highly recommended.
We stayed on a Monday night after Christmas as a surpise Christmas present to my mom. We reserved two rooms but had the entire place to ourselves. It was great! We were able to explore the mansion as we pleased. We would definitely stay again!
This was a Christmas present from my husband and being here truly blew me away!!! What elegance and charm!! I felt like a queen while there! Hope to come again some day! The entire house was so amazing and beyond clean and comfortable!!! The morning breakfast prepared by James was such an amazing presentation and delicious taste!! Great job to everyone that makes this such a wonderful place to enjoy!
Jason was absolutely amazing. He was very thoughtful and attentive. The mansion was absolutely beautiful with great service. The decor was stunning and I enjoyed my stay emensily. I would recommend Fountainview Mansion to anyone. I couldn't have had a more pleasant stay.
