About Lee Sherman
This propery was originally part of the Idlepine Lodge resort, operated 1922-1968, divided up into lot parcels in 1970's. Owner grew up spending summers here and eventually inherited property in 1988 from grandparents. We reside here in the summer and spend winters in Vero Beach, Florida.
Lee Sherman purchased this Cottage in 1988
Why Lee Sherman chose West Fairlee
It is a peaceful lake where you can kayak, canoe, paddle board and relax. It is a perfect lake for water skiing. We are nestled in a cove where you can swim laps or swim out to our float.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lake Fairlee is my favorite place in the whole world with beautiful views of the Green Mountains. The lake looks like glass in the early morning hours and while you sip your coffee you can hear the loons calling to each other. In early fall you awake to a thick fog which burns off as the morning continues.

Peaceful and Comfortable
This lovely cabin was the perfect place to spend a relaxing long weekend. It is beautifully located, the porch has a nice view of the lake, and the cabin is a good size for a family. The furniture, especially the master bed, is so comfortable. The seating on the porch was also very comfortable. We had a great time, thank you!
So glad you enjoyed your mini-vacation here in Vermont. We hope you come back, and...bring Heidi, your beautiful dog.
Relaxing and peaceful vacation.
Great accommodations - very comfortable with everything one could possibly want, made even better by having our dogs with us. Loved the deck and the lakeside areas. Lee and Norman are wonderful hosts and provided many suggestions on things to do and see. We expect to return.

Relaxing Retreat on Lake Fairlee
This home was wonderful in every sense. Beautiful views, well appointed and comfortable home and gracious hosts. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Beautiful and Charming as Advertised
My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage is very clean and well stocked. The lake view is so beautiful. Owner Lee and Norman were there to greet us upon our arrival. They are very friendly, courteous and helpful. We will definitely choose to stay at this property again.
Perfect lake getaway!
Thank you Lee and Norman for the wonderful and relaxing stay at your comfy and cozy cabin! We loved having the lake with the canoes, kayak and swim dock ready to use especially after a morning of running the Covered Bridges Half Marathon. Our dog really enjoyed swimming and chasing the chipmunks! We also enjoyed the local dining (Ariana's, Peyton Place and Whippi Dip) all just a short drive away (thank you for your recommendations). We hope to book again in the future and plan to do some hiking. The cherry tomatoes from your garden were such a nice treat! Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with us!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Idlepine and look forward to your return, you and Blini, of course ! Lee & Norman
Perfect place to spend Memorial Day Weekend
Our stay on the Lake was perfect. The location couldn't be better, and the cottage is well appointed with everything you need. We enjoyed jumping in the Lake each morning as well as sitting on the dock taking in the view. We love this part of Vermont, and enjoyed visiting all the familiar spots nearby. Thanks so much for our stay, Lee and Norman!
So glad you enjoyed our secluded spot on the Lake. You were perfect guests and we hope you return for any future vacations.
