Our Story

The Village Inn was built in 1874, making it one of the oldest homes in Fair Haven. Built in the Italianate Style, the home features a lovely side porch; and was built with a front porch that no longer exists. An addition was made to the back of the house in the late 1800s.

One owner, a railroad engineer would bring back unusual rocks from his journeys. These rocks make up the stone wall at the south of the property. 

We enjoy a view of Little Sodus Bay and are bordered on the southwest by Sterling Creek. 

Your innkeepers, Mike and Tina Hanford, have owned the home for 23 years, raising their four sons here.  They look forward to welcoming you to the Village Inn and sharing, as one of their sons said when he was little,  "Fair Haven: the world's best kept secret!"
