Delaware Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. Very quiet and tranquil, beautiful gardens, very pleasant owners, friendly dogs and near by horses. I was here 7 nights and used the kitchen everyday for at least breakfast or lunch. I hope to come back again. I highly recommend. My stay here in a word was for me perfect, very convenient location for Winterthur, Brandywine river museum, Longwood Gardens and Amish country.

Peaceful Cottage Off The Beaten Path...

  • 5 of 5

Throughly enjoyed this adorable stone cottage tucked back off a country road near everything we planned to visit. The home is spacious, comfortable, lovely. Four ladies traveling together, each having our own space, beautiful bathrooms and several comfortable rooms throughout the home to sit and spend time together. Looking forward to returning in the summer to enjoy the front and back patios. Thank you, Mary!.

Live like a DuPont!

  • 4 of 5

This large home is in a truly lovely setting of rolling hills, horse farms and roads lined with gorgeous stone walls.

While this is an old house, the owners are doing a very nice job with upgrades, and we would certainly choose it again.

Beautiful setting, comfortable home, lovely and interesting area!

  • 5 of 5

My three friends and I loved this home. The bucolic setting is a pleasure. We especially loved seeing the horses in their pasture just across the lane. The home is cozy, roomy and comfortable. We had easy access to nearby Longwood Gardens and the various duPont estates/museums. A special treat was our discovery of the Phillips Mushroom Museum and shop. We lived traveling the back roads and byways of the area. Altogether a lovely time!

We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, with spouses, recently stayed 4 nights at Fox Fodder Farm in north Wilmington. We were all absolutely delighted with the experience. The kitchen and bathrooms are newly renovated and up-to-date while the remaining rooms retain a museum quality charm that makes them enjoyable to just sit in when nothing else was going on. All rooms are spacious and we had no problem accommodating 11 for lunch. The location feels secluded but was convenient to all the places we wanted or needed to go. Our trip to Wilmington was enjoyable and I can truly say staying at Fox Fodder Farm had as much to do with the success of the trip as anything else.
