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, […]


Fresh Cut Grass

It’s that time of year again…the sun feels warmer, the weather is nicer, spirits are higher and those springtime leisure activities are beginning again. Dust off your golf bags that you’ve hidden away in your basement, your mother-in-law’s basement, the garage, where-have-you and get back into the swing of a relaxing sport that gives quite the […]


Splishin’, Splashin’ & Summertime Fun

As we inch a little closer to summertime and the weather gets warmer, our minds start to drift towards thoughts of sunshine, less worries and maybe even a little Fair Hills waterslide fun. This year, we are extremely excited to celebrate 50 years of the Fair Hills Resort waterslide! Do you have a favorite memory? Share it […]


A Melting Pot

One of the many things that make Fair Hills unique is its diversity of staff. Each year, it’s fun to get to learn about the various places that they are from — learning bits of language, tasting traditional food and hearing about childhood memories, favorite music and more. Throughout my 10 years as a guest, I’ve met […]

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, […]


The Barn at Five Lakes Resort

The Barn is finally finished! Well it has been “finished” for about 3 months now and even though there will always be small projects to continually enhance the space, it’s ready. Perfect for weddings, groom’s dinners, meetings and parties, The Barn is a picturesque venue for any event.  You won’t find horses in this barn.  […]


What is a Hootenanny?

A Hootenanny is officially defined (thank you dictionary.com) as a social gathering or informal concert featuring folk singing and, sometimes, dancing. But more importantly (and more officially), a Hootenanny is the Tuesday night show at Fair Hills Resort featuring folk singing and dancing. The Hoot is probably one of the most anticipated activities each week […]


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 […]
