Relaxation Station

As summertime rolls around, I find that my mind wanders more and more…thinking about reading outside by the pool, wearing nothing but my swimsuit, a coverup and a nice sunhat and drinking an Arnold Palmer. Ooh, and grilling out. Man, my dad can cook a mean burger or steak. I drift away from responsibilities and listen to carefree, […]

Winter Waterslide?

I have found the winter equivalent of the summer Tuesday afternoon waterslide. It’s roof sliding! Yesterday a crew of 10, Dan Mohn, Lisa, Steve, Emily, Pat, Toelly, Gordy, Shannon, Bob and Caitlin, came together to shovel snow off the roofs of the dining room and 15 cabins.  What a sight to see, 6 people moving […]


Summer Please Hurry!

This morning our thermometer read -17 degrees.  It is days like today when it is hard to remember that our summers are beautiful and hot.  How wonderful a summer day would feel today.  Heck, a 30 degree day would feel wonderful. Thinking only warm summer thoughts today (or we will freeze).   Small waves washing ashore, […]

February 2012 Newsletter

AMAZING If there have been more than a handful of below zero days this winter, then I’m a monkey’s uncle!  No cross country skiing, at all, but if that means 30 degrees over Christmas break, I’m okay with that for one winter!  I know we talked about record snowfall last year so we may as […]


Happy Holidays 2011

The Close of the 2011 Season

The Fair Hills 2011 Season has ended. The resort has been cleaned and closed down for the winter. Patty has unmade all the beds, Dave has turned the water off to all cabins and Debbie has wrapped up everything in the lobby. The office has moved into Detroit Lakes and it is quiet. Too quiet. […]
