This place is tops in my book. My fiancé and I were fortunate enough to spend a long weekend at Fair Hills for a wedding in late August this year, and honestly I don't think it could have been more relaxing. First of all, the resort itself is beautiful. Right on the Northern edge of Pelican lake, it offers great... More

Fabulous nature, Great Staff and Owners! I love Schupp Family! I really like the meals cooked by Cheryl and Suzy! It was great to meet you all guys! I miss you all! I enjoyed a great summer with you!

My wife and I were here for a wedding of Labor Day Weekend and we were very disappointed. We arrived later on Friday night and the first thing you notice is that there are hardly any lights around the resort, which makes it hard and dangerous to navigate, especially in the rain. When we checked in, they gave us a... More

We enjoyed a great week at Fair Hills, carefree and relaxing for all the adults with meals provided and activities for the children twice each day. We enjoyed family time on our own as well as participating in resort activities. We came to know other guests and enjoyed time with them. It is a joy to find a place where... More

Fair Hills is on wonderful Pelican Lake and its a little piece of paradise. You can do as much or as little as you like.. Golf, tennis, water sports, early morning walks or relax with a good book. No stress, no TVs and no better place to spend time with your family. I love the free golf course where you... More

My husband and I went to Lake Five for our babymoon. We thought that fully unplugging from our busy lives would be a great option for us, since we couldn't leave the country or go very far as I am in the 3rd trimester. We got the 4 day special, so we didn't break the bank. We also got Cabin... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Five Lakes Resort and for your kind mention of Fair Hills Resort and the Hootenanny! The two new moms working in the office at the resort want to tell you how jealous they are of the peace and solitude you were able to enjoy at Five Lakes, one of whom... More

I grew up going to go to a resort in Michigan called Pennellwood (in the 80’s and 90’s). It closed at some point over the last 10 years and I looked for a similar place I could start taking my kids. Fair Hills was the lucky winner. I won’t do a side-by-side in this review – if you are an... More

We were luck enough to go to Fair Hills Resort last summer (2014). Our kids are between the ages of 2-9. All of them had so much fun! Each day the kids would bounce out of bed ready for their next days activities! They had a BLAST! I can't can not say enough good things about the staff, activities, guest... More

Fair Hills Resort was a dream vacation for our kids (10, 8, 6, 3) and my husband and I. Our family visited in August 2014 and we loved it so much that we are hoping we can make it a annual summer vacation tradition. The activities for all age groups were so much fun! The staff provided the perfect blend... More

My family of 7 from grandparents to granddaughters stayed at Fair Hills in August. We were led to this place because we had stayed at another wonderful family resort in Minnesota years ago (since closed) owned by relatives of the owners of Fair Hills. We were not disappointed! Everything was perfect, including the weather. Lots to do if we wanted... More
