quiet country home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very clean, very elegantly decorated home. Plenty of linens and towels for our family of 6; the kitchen was very well stocked with utensils, etc. The home is on a very private and nicely landscaped lot. Since we were busy with our son's wedding and all that entailed, we weren't able to enjoy the deck and yard with a fire pit, but it looked very nice! We rented the entire house, which suited our needs perfectly. My husband and I had the apartment downstairs, and our 4 adult children,(as well as one of their friends on one of the nights) had plenty of room upstairs.

The owner returned messages promptly and was very pleasant in all my interactions with her. I would definitely recommend this property to rent.

Super! Would rent again!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for our family gathering! Three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Very nice. The downstairs unit also had its own kitchen and living area with TV, but we all gathered together upstairs for meals. There was PLENTY of seating around the large table with ample seating in the dining area. Loads of comfortable seating in the upstairs living room. Plus there's a deck with a large gas grill. A fire pit. A yard for tossing a Frisbie or a football. It was great. Private, but not isolated, and the Internet worked great.

Great for events at Fair Hill

  • 5 of 5

We (3 pairs of adults/children) stayed here for a horse event at Fair Hill. It was a beautiful house, well laid out, close to Fair Hill and we couldn't have been happier. Beds were comfortable, backyard and fire pit were great for relaxing in the evening. Looking forward to visiting again next year!

Perfect spot to host our family for the college graduation weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here. My daughter was graduating from the University of Delaware over Memorial weekend. We had quite a few family members traveling in and this house was the perfect place to host everybody. Cozy and warm, plenty of really comfortable beds and bathrooms and privacy for those who needed it. A big table for meals and board games. A nice deck and a beautiful yard. It is a quick and easy drive to campus and so nice to be in peaceful countryside rather than one of the hotels on the crowded highways! The owner is delightful and so very helpful! Thank you for adding to the joyful weekend!

Big Elk Creek, running through FHNRMA offers fishing opportunities for smallmouth bass, sunfish, bluegill, brown and rainbow trout. In addition to nature appreciation, FHNRMA offers limited, by permit only, deer and raccoon hunting.

We are a five minute drive to downtown Newark, DE and the main campus of the University of DE. Restaurants, pubs, bars, fast food and interesting shops abound in the semi-quiet town of Newark, with UD students always offering a colorful and lively backdrop. Tax-free shopping at the Christiana Mall, Target, Costco, Barnes and Noble, and Cabela's is a 10 mile drive.

Fair Hill House is also within an easy drive of Plumpton Park Zoo, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA, the Brandywine Valley, and an equidistant hour's drive from Lancaster, Philadelphia, and Baltimore.

Gettysburg is 100 miles to the west, Delaware beaches 100 miles southeast.

Additional hiking, biking, and horseback riding can be enjoyed at nearby White Clay Creek.
