Beautiful home and property.

  • 5 of 5

This property was true to its description and matched the rave reviews of other quests. The main upstairs and downstairs apartment worked perfectly for our family.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and my children, their spouses, their children and I stayed 6 days at this property. We truly enjoyed our stay! The property is well maintained, filled with amenities, located in a quiet neighborhood, with great neighbors. I highly recommend this property to families looking to escape the busy city. Everything from arrival to departure went as expected. I could have stayed longer! It was like being at home. If we return to the area for another vacation I would check the availability of this property first. The layout of the house is perfect for families. Everything about this property made this trip a huge success for our family. If you're trying to decide between a hotel and a home, think no more, this is far above staying at a high quality hotel. As someone who travels frequently this stay spoiled me. Now my first thought will be to rent a home. This was a great stay, a great property, and again I highly recommend this property if you are staying anywhere close to this area.

quiet country home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean, very elegantly decorated home. Plenty of linens and towels for our family of 6; the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, etc. The home is on a very private and nicely landscaped lot. Since we were busy with our son's wedding and all that entailed, we weren't able to enjoy the deck and yard with a fire pit, but it looked very nice! We rented the entire house, which suited our needs perfectly. My husband and I had the apartment downstairs, and our 4 adult children,(as well as one of their friends on one of the nights) had plenty of room upstairs.

The owner returned messages promptly and was very pleasant in all my interactions with her. I would definitely recommend this property to rent.

Super! Would rent again!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family gathering! Three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Very nice. The downstairs unit also had its own kitchen and living area with TV, but we all gathered together upstairs for meals. There was PLENTY of seating around the large table with ample seating in the dining area. Loads of comfortable seating in the upstairs living room. Plus there's a deck with a large gas grill. A fire pit. A yard for tossing a Frisbie or a football. It was great. Private, but not isolated, and the Internet worked great.

Fair Hill House is adjacent to Fair Hill Natural Resource Management Area, 5600 acres of preserved farmlands for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Big Elk Creek, running through FHNRMA offers fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, sunfish, bluegill, brown and rainbow trout. In addition to nature appreciation, FHNRMA offers limited, by permit only, deer and raccoon hunting. Fair Hill is well known as a venue for FHI Recognized Horse Trials and Three Day Fall Festival, Fair Hill Point to Point, Fair Hill Races, Scottish Games, and the Cecil County Fair.

We are a five minute drive to downtown Newark, DE and the main campus of the University of DE. Restaurants, pubs, bars, fast food and interesting shops abound in the semi-quiet town of Newark, with UD students always offering a colorful and lively backdrop. Tax-free shopping at the Christiana Mall, Target, Costco, Barnes and Noble, and Cabela's is a 10 mile drive.

Fair Hill House is also within an easy drive of Plumpton Park Zoo, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, the Brandywine Valley, and an equidistant hour's drive from Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.
