About the Property
Lake Morey summer rental, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, lawn garden, and private dock
House located on lakeside of road. You do not have to cross street to get to lake.
The front has a lawn perfect for a lawn party or simply playing games with the children. Meanwhile if it’s lakefront access you want, simply go down the winding path of stepping stones in the back and enjoy lake living from the private dock.
The house contains 2 bedrooms, living room, full kitchen, dining area, sun room, and two decks off of main house. Each of the bedrooms has its own bathroom, each with its own tub & shower. Keeping with the ambiance and serenity of the lake there is no TV … which guests have said is a blessing … as it leaves more time for reading, talking with your kids, playing games, or simply enjoying the outdoors.
The mahogany wood deck off the sun-room provides an ideal spot for enjoying the lake view, reading, sun-bathing, barbequing, having hors d’oeuvres & cocktails, or outdoor dining as the sun sets.
The private deck/patio off the master bedroom offers views of the lake and mountains.
The property has parking for three cars, with overflow parking available at a public boat launch area (about 5 min walk up the lake).
To help protect the new floors, we ask shoes be left in the front entry area.
Bedding and towels are provided. There is a full-sized refrigerator in the kitchen. There is a gas grill on the deck for your use, please replace the gas if you empty the container.
There is an indoor fireplace that you probably won’t need in the summer.
No smoking and no pets. We recycle everything. If you simply put all clean paper, plastic, glass and cans in one bag and other non-recyclable garbage in another we will take them to the dump.
We require a 5 night minimum stay.
There is wireless internet service with 12 GB of data included with each rental. According to Verizon 1 hour of streaming video per day uses between 3-4 GB for the week. Standard Verizon rates of $15/GB apply on usage over 12 GB.

Lake Morey is 5 miles around on a paved quiet road; perfect for a morning walk, bike ride or jog. There are 2 bikes with helmets provided. The golf course, site of the Vermont State Open, is less than ½ mile from the house. The Lake Morey Resort has been well known as a vacation destination since the early 1900's when actor Melvin Douglas lived on the lake and President Eisenhower vacationed here. Meanwhile Dartmouth College is only 15 miles away down interstate 91.
In addition to swimming off our private dock there is the town beach and nearby Lake Fairlee to explore, not to mention great trails and waterfalls (within walking distance from house) to discover. For the more adventuresome there is hot air ballooning in nearby Post Mills.
Our family has been coming to Lake Morey for over 70 years and family members are still very active in the local community … make sure you stop in at Gryphon’s Antiques and Chapmans when you visit Fairlee. Fishing licenses can be obtained at Chapman’s and are required even off the dock and the lake is patrolled. For grocery shopping there is Wings in Fairlee, Hannaford's in Bradford and the Dartmouth Coop in Hanover.
Restaurants- There are many within 10-15 mile radius. In Fairlee there is the Whippi Dip (great ice cream, sandwiches, etc.), Lake Morey Inn (sit down dining with view of the lake), Fairlee Diner (traditional breakfast). For fine dining try any of the following: Peyton Place or Arianna’s in Orford, Stella’s in Lyme, or Carpenter & Main in Norwich.
There are 2 kayaks provided for guest’s use. The Fairlee Marina on Route 5 rents boats, if you’d like to do so separately. With rates for the week you can keep boat at our dock. Swimming from the dock is fine. The water is thigh deep at shore and over your head at the end of the dock. The house comes with two life vests; Vermont law requires life vests be worn in all boats, canoes and kayaks.
