Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a long weekend for our daughter’s wedding. The house was exactly as advertised. Parents and grandparents stayed upstairs, younger couple in the downstairs apartment.

We didn’t do any major cooking. The kitchen looked to be well equipped; it was more than sufficient for the couple of breakfasts and lunches we prepared. The large table was a nice gathering area.

The host priovided some nice touches, such as fresh flowers on the table and some bottled water.

I would definitely recommend this house if you need a place to stay near UDel or Fairhill.

Great stay and super comfy home

  • 5 of 5

My family came in town from Wyoming, Colorado and Las Vegas for my wedding and loved this home. 1 week in this house was very comfortable and accommodating to my family. My wedding was at the tea barn at fair hill about a mile away, so this was a perfect place for us all to get ready and leave without seeing each other before the ceremony. It was comfortable and very home like. We were able to BBQ and host a rehearsal dinner here even. Karen was very pleasant and quick to responding and helping us. The only issue we had was drying items in the dryer which Karen had mentioned upon arrival. Which was a bit frustrating being as we were short clean towels and they weren't dried fast enough with the dryer only working with a few items in them.

Other than that, no complaints !

If you're looking to share a place with the family and want separate entrances for privacy etc- this is perfect and still linked through the stairs. Separate apartment downstairs. Great room for parking several vehicles also!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear that the house worked well for you. With regard to the dryer I think what happened is that both the washer and dryer need reasonably full loads in them to function properly. Sorry for any inconvenience!

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.

Gettysburg is 100 miles to the west, Delaware beaches 100 miles southeast.

Additional hiking, biking, and horseback riding can be enjoyed at nearby White Clay Creek.
