Nature lovers paradise, wooded setting. Deer, wild turkey and rabbits. Hike right outside the back door to a network of trails to Bald Top Mountain (part of the Lake Morey Trail and Rivendale Trails systems). Star gazing on a clear night is breathtaking because no street lights or light pollution.

For boating enthusiasts, the 1/4m driveway allows for adequate parking and boats can easily be brought in and out via the circular driveway. The Lake Morey boat launch is 1/2m away and is open to the public, with parking free of charge. Use of the Fairlee Town beach is included in the rental by means of a 'Beach Pass', and is just a 10 min walk or short drive away at no extra charge. Walk to golf and tennis, too. Each bedroom has it's own private deck, and there are 2 other decks for general use.
