Let me begin by saying I'm not from the area, so the concept of Fair Hills was unfamiliar to me. Let's be clear: this is NOT a "resort" in the luxury getaway sense of the word. It is a summer camp for families, complete with modest cabins (clean, but somewhere between a Motel 6 and a La Quinta Inn in... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed Tuesday-Saturday and never ran out of things to do. They kept us and our young daughter very busy and well fed! We loved the free use of the kayaks, great pool and beachfront, and kind staff. I was skeptical they were going to keep us busy enough, but they certainly did!

It must be a pretty amazing place that would call us back for 44 years straight! Fair Hills is a bit of heaven on earth. Cabins are unique and well-maintained; food in the dining hall is absolutely incredible (especially the homemade rolls). This resort has been family owned for more years than anyone can count, and the pride these people... More

Living only 45 minutes from Fair Hills it is hard to believe I have never been here before. It was a PERFECT little get away for our family. The entire site is pretty dated and needs a bit of a facelift. However, we were not there to be inside so we were fine. The bed was SUPER comfortable. We stayed... More

Came to stay for a wedding weekend. We got cabin 46&A. They were both beautifully redone compared to a few of the others we got to see. Some cabins were right on the water, like ours, and had stunning views right from the bed! Lots of amenities free of charge. The grounds were very well kept. There is no TV,... More

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

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
