Fairlee cabin description

This private log cabin on 11 wooded acres overlooks Lake Morey and has a fabulous eastern view of Franconia Notch and Mt. Moosilauke. From the swinging hammock chair on the deck and while enjoying your favorite beverage, you can enjoy great sunrises and moonrises while receiving, as one guest put it, “Fairlee therapy.” The first thing that most visitors say when arriving at the cabin is “wow!” Keep your eyes open as we often spot hawks, eagles, owls and an occasional hot air balloon.
Included are two kayaks and a canoe and a beach pass for the Fairlee town beach. The Lake Morey public boat launch is 5 minutes away. The cabin is 10 minutes away from a public boat launch on the Connecticut River, one of many from which you can plan a canoe or kayak trip on the river. There is a network of hiking and mountain biking trails maintained by the Lake Morey Association right off the porch. Also 5 minutes away are great road bike routes. One of our favorites crosses the Connecticut into New Hampshire. There is a bike route for everyone – from short and easy to a century ride. Lake Morey Country Club is just down the hill with a great 18 hole public golf course. There are also other excellent public courses in St Johnsbury and Hanover, both within a half hour. Hanover, New Hampshire (home of Dartmouth College) with concerts, fine restaurants and theaters is 20 minutes away. On the lower lawn, there is a picnic table and a fire pit. This recently built and carefully maintained log cabin is a perfect spot for rest and relaxation or as a base for multiple activities to satisfy the ardent athlete or the quiet nature lover. For the sportsman/woman, there is fishing in Lake Morey, the CT River or Lake Fairlee. In the fall there is direct access to the Fairlee town forest and other hunting areas.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: We are outdoor enthusiasts and would love for out guests to gain as much enjoyment from this spot as we do. Mike is a former senior administrator in higher education with a background in outdoor recreation and natural resource management. He also loves music, plays guitar and piano and sings. Big fan of Bruce Springsteen. Favorite activities include cycling, golf and hiking and just being outdoors. Nancy works as a professor at Union Institute and University after a long career as an elementary school teacher and is a life long educator. We have a dog, Otis, who is a 2 year old black Lab and a joy to walk with. Otis recently completed his first 4000' foot peak as we scaled Camel's Hump in March.

              Why the Owner Chose Fairlee:
              Initially, it was to find a vacation home within 2 hours or so of home in western Massachusetts. Although Mike had lived in VT before, he had never really known this area of Vermont until taking up an offer from a friend to spend a few days at a family cabin. He fell in love with the area because it reminded him of the Connecticut River Valley of his youth, complete with a drive in theatre. After looking at other properties, this one had the location and the VIEW. Easy access to I 91 (1.3 miles) made it easy to travel from Massachusetts. Shortly after building the cabin, while sitting on the deck one Sunday reading the paper, Mike saw an ad for a job at a college in Randolph, applied and got the job. Now living in Randolph, it is less than an hour to get to Fairlee from home.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              Let's start with sitting on the deck and enjoying the view. Sometimes, it's a hard place to leave. For the active outdoor person, there are a variety of things to do. For the less active, there is easy access to many Vermont attractions. We have intentionally not added cable or internet because it is meant as a retreat from the hustle of everyday life. If you must be in contact, there is good cell phone coverage and the Fairlee library offers a wi fi hot spot. Not being on the lake offers more privacy while still being close by.. The character of the cabin is still rustic with all of the basic creature comforts needed after an active day, assuming that you can leave the deck.
