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 join the scheduled kid activities (even a teen night for the older kids!) or to spend time with family swimming, boating, golfing or practice for the talent show! As others have mentioned, there is lots of built in entertainment, if you like that (night-time shows, golf, tennis, volleyball, campfires, cocktail parties) or you can simply sit and read a book. The dining hall serves amazing meals with multiple choices for all (vegetarian always a choice) and the staff is very accommodating to special requests. We appreciated the serving sizes being appropriate, not too huge and you can always request a half portion since they feed you so well! (or multiple desserts!) The staff is outgoing, talented (!) musically and always ready with a smile!
Suggestions of things to bring: if you enjoy wine/beer, you can rent a refridgerator or simply bring a cooler (ice is sold at $0.05 per LARGE scoop: so dirt cheap!) and remember the wine opener; flashlight for walking at night, although the pathways are very well lit; maybe snacks for your cabin, although the food service is great and they do sell ice cream/popcorn/snacks at the pavillion. There is no need to leave Fair Hills once you pass through the golden archway!
