Responsible tourism: Luxury bed and breakfast in Hunter, New York, USA

Environment

We at the Fairlawn Inn are rated gold by Audubon International, I love NY, and Tripadvior.com. Our quest for green and eco- appropriate sustainability began when we purchased the inn and that commitment only strengthens over time. All cleaning products are made on site with organic essential oils.

The inn is the ONLY green rated property in the Catskill region with the intent of getting to platinum ratings as soon as possible. All of our electricity is purchased from green sources, hydro electric, wind or solar. We conserve energy as much as possible there are NO incandescent lights in the inn, most CFL and others are LED. We are working on getting sola tube skylights assisted with LED lighting in the Fall of this year. We purchase all of our products, especially breakfast items locally and use local contractors whenever possible. we have composted since day one and continue to expand our gardens with plants we trade or divide as they need it. All landscaping have sweeping curves to minimize weed eating and cut our grass at a higher level more often to keep it green and healthy with minimal watering.

Most if not all purchases are within a 15 mile radius and are as organic as possible. We purchase from local growers, egg producers and a majority of products used in the inn were grown (seasonally) and used within days of purchase. We also own and operate an antique mall - the first recycled products. Our eggs are purchased from a local farm that has been in existence since 1939 and they still use crop rotation, grow their own feed for their chickens and cows. Some herbs and products are grown on site but most purchased locally. We offer concierge services and match local farms, attractions, performing arts, restaurants to guests upon arrival and throughout their stay. We also offer directions to the farms and producers for guests so they can take advantage of the freshest products available and meet the people that provide the best product to the Fairlawn. The innkeeper is active as a member of the County tourism committee and also on the Board of Directors for the New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association. That organization recognized the Fairlawn as the #1 Inn in NY for 2010 and also a the "Good Earthkeeper" in 2013.
