We loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I, with spouses, recently stayed 4 nights at Fox Fodder Farm in north Wilmington. We were all absolutely delighted with the experience. The kitchen and bathrooms are newly renovated and up-to-date while the remaining rooms retain a museum quality charm that makes them enjoyable to just sit in when nothing else was going on. All rooms are spacious and we had no problem accommodating 11 for lunch. The location feels secluded but was convenient to all the places we wanted or needed to go. Our trip to Wilmington was enjoyable and I can truly say staying at Fox Fodder Farm had as much to do with the success of the trip as anything else.

Beautiful home, beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us recently traveled to Wilmington for a girls trip and stayed in this wonderful cottage. It felt as though we belonged in England! We couldn't believe how beautiful it was and how spacious! The décor was amazing inside and out, with the screened-in porch being the most used room of all--a great place to end the day over a glass of wine and lots of laughter. There's so much to see and do in Wilmington and nearby Philadelphia. We only wish we had planned to stay longer so we could've enjoyed the cottage even more!

Everything I'd dreamed and more

  • 5 of 5

What an amazingly beautiful, peaceful home. Perfect for our annual girls' group get together. The home was stunning: spacious, multiple gathering spaces, laid back ... with every room detailed with simplicity and care. I had a lump in my throat as I left. So much good energy in this place. Owners Mary and Chris were the perfect blend of caring and available, but never intruding (which I wish they had -- they were so delightful!). For whatever reason you reserve this home, you will find it top shelf in every way. I hope to return many times. Thank you, Fox Fodder Farm, for one of the most memorable weeks of my life.

Beautiful home in a beautiful area close to several DuPont homes and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Fox Fodder Farm! The home is beautifully decorated with antiques and the property is gorgeous with lovely gardens and pastures with horses. It is very close to several DuPont homes and gardens - Winterthur, Nemours, Hagley Museum and Longwood Gardens as well as the Delaware Art Museum. The four bedrooms had beds which were firm and comfortable with three renovated bathrooms with two bedrooms having on-suite bathrooms. It was a bit warm on our visit in July but the AC worked great and bedrooms had ceiling fans as well. The owners were available for any questions we had about the area. Highly recommend!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stone Cottage for three nights and loved every minute. The house is spacious, comfortable, clean and relaxing - we spent hours on the screened porch, a favorite spot. The surroundings are beautiful and the house is equipped with everything you need. We have already reserved some time in 2018 to return!
