Fodor's Review

Original art, Viennese antiques, and dramatic furnishings shine in this lavish, 1885 Italianate mansion. Set in parklike gardens in the tree-lined Rockland district, the Fairholme has spacious, high-ceiling rooms. The suites are massive—generally about 900 square feet—and most have a king bed, a fine view, and a fireplace. The Olympic Grand Suite has lush white sofas, bay windows, and private ocean-view decks. In the lower-floor Fairholme room, the bathroom is big

enough for a chaise longue and palm tree next to the double-soaker tub. Small groups like the kitchen and private deck in the two-bedroom Rose Garden suite. Elaborate breakfasts—the hostess is a best-selling cookbook author—are served by the fireplace in the art-filled dining room, or at tables for two on the porch.
