We attended a wedding that was held at the Fair Hills Resort. This was our first time at this location. What a great little place! Food was wonderful. Staff was very attentive!. It started to downpour as we left the reception to attend the dance. The resort had umbrellas for the quests to use and golf carts standing by to... More

We have stayed at this resort five times now and every time we leave the kids can't wait to get back!! The food was amazing, the staff was super friendly, and even though we stayed there for a week we ran out of time to do all the activities offered! I have three kids and there are things to do...

Our family has been coming to Fair Hills for almost 40 years. I came as a child and have loved introducing it to my wife and our children. If you need luxury accommodations and 5 star cuisine, this isn't your place - and we don't want you. Cabins are clean and food is good (and plenty of it) but this... More

Our group was here for an annual dinner get together. We had our dinner on their HUGE Dinner boat. They take you out for a cruise on the lake. The food was EXCELLENT and hot. Grilled right on the boat. We would definitely return for a dinner cruise. If you are looking for a rustic resort and enjoy a week... More

We spent a week at Fair Hills with our two children 13 and 11. It is very much a family camp with numerous activities. The cabins are very basic but comfortable: we spent very little time in ours. Although we had a great location right on the lake with a nice deck. It was great to hear the waves each... More

Fair Hills Resort exceeded all of our expectations. We were looking for a true getaway that would allow us to enjoy our family and get a real break from our hectic busy lives. From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and were treated like old friends. We have kids that range from 2-17 and each of them had plenty... More

Here, you are right ON the Lake - just as you are at the Restaurant, too. You cannot beat this location, seriously. Impressive facility all around. Great staff and customer service, we thought. Big, super clean room and a nice pool setup, too. One of the great Lake locations in MN and Fair Hills has the best setup in DL... More

Friendly staff welcomed us for our boys' golf weekend getaway. We did get upgraded to the Ranch House (you can hear waves crashing in on the lake shore from your room) since it was a slow part of the year (mid-May) which was a great fit. The Play & Stay Package was fairly priced, included breakfast (chock-full of gooey caramel... More

We just returned from another great family vacation at Fair Hills! I grew up coming here with my family of 7, and now it's become our vacation of choice for family reunions with my siblings and their families! The cabins are very basic, but who spends time in there except to sleep? Our kids enjoy the freedom to roam and... More
