About The Fairview
Located in the heart of downtown Austin, just four blocks from the trendy SOCO (South Congress) district, The Fairview bed and breakfast is a historic landmark property affectionately known as The Gullett House. Built in 1910 by an early Texas cattleman, the home was eventually purchased by Tom Gullett, the first superintendent of the local school district. In the early 1990’s the home first transitioned into a bed and breakfast and in 2000 Jimi and Vivian Ballard purchased the property as their home. After extensive renovations, the Ballard’s reopened the estate as a bed and breakfast in 2014. Today The Fairview is a six room, family-and-pet friendly, B&B with a modern interior and thoughtfully preserved historic elements. The Fairview is located at 1304 Newning Ave, Austin, TX 78704.
