Fairlee is easily reached from both NY and Boston via I-91 and has a lot to offer in every season. Only 20 min from Dartmouth College (Hanover NH) there is a wealth of outdoor and cultural activities in the area, as well as great restaurants and fabulous farm produce. Great for relaxing or exploring.

Hiking trails, swimming at the town beach, cycling, running around the lake, golfing at the Lake Morey Country Club (walking distance). The house is very private yet very accessible to activities and great local restaurants.

We really loved this rental. lots of space the kitchen had lots of everything we needed to prepare meals for family. the view was awesome. very relaxing, very private. there were local restaurants that were great. the location of the new Hannaford's was so convenient saving drive to West Lebanon. you would not even know that you are only 10 min from interstate which allowed for easy access point to where ever we wanted to go.

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5
We rented at Lockview for 3 weeks. Our grandaughter came from florida to visit and loves the lake in Fairlee. The house is amazing. We did host a 4th of July gathering and it is purfect for a large group. The kitchen is very spacious and the view from there is beautiful. We watched the fireworks from there and they were fantastic. There are deer running about and little bambies we really enjoyed seeing the wild life. There is also a path to a waterfall and little pool of water that was fun for us as well as the kids!

The house is very comfortable and you feel right at home. Hink the caretaker meet us to check us in and he is very helpful and very nice. If you have anything you need help with he is right there. I would rent this house again in a min.
Dashiell is very nice and very quick to respond to you.
The only thing I would like to see is there are about 3 trees that are starting to block the beautiful view of the lake. If they could be trimmed or cut the view would be even better!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the lovely review Mickey. It was a pleasure having you and your family. You left the place incredibly clean and really looked after the property which is so appreciated. I take your point about the trees - something I hadn't considered as I'm never at the house in the summer when they are in full bloom. I will see if I can figure out which ones obscure the view and trim them back before next summer. Thanks for your comments and please come back and see us again! Best, Dashiell

A CHOICE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our eight day stay could not have been better! The location is very private, quiet, and the home is furnished perfectly. The surrounding area is like a village with plenty of places to eat out, buy groceries and prepare your own meals, whatever your pleasure.
The nearby caretaker is easily accessible if there is a need, such as when a thunder storm temporarily knocked out the wi-fi, which he restored quickly. He also met us there on arrival as well as checked us out when leaving.
My greatest fear about my rave on this place is that it will not be available next time I plan to return, but it would be unfair to do other than express our absolute pleasure in staying at Lochview.

JULY/AUGUST 2012

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were in Vermont for our daughter's wedding and stayed at Lochview during the week. The property is exactly as described. It is clean, spacious, attractively decorated, and very relaxing! The location is remote enough to be very private, but close enough to any activity you care to pursue including the Fairlee Drive in Movie Theater. We thoroughly enjoyed the spacious and well laid out kitchen, and hosted a dinner for the wedding party the second night with room to spare. Despite the unusually high temperatures and humidity that week, we were very comfortable in the house. With its energy-efficient features and cool evening breezes, we did not even have to use the AC. Dashiell our host is extremely organized and gracious, and Hink-the-handyman is very helpful. We did not require his services during the week, but knew that he was available in minutes if needed. My wife is already looking forward to a return visit in the future.

Owner's Response: Bob and Darlene, It was a pleasure having you - and so glad you could take advantage of all the kitchen amenities to host a party for your daughters wedding. The open plan style of the house is great for entertaining - and it sounds like you made the most of everything. I'm so happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and see us soon. We offer a discount to returning guests as a 'thank you' for your patronage. Cheers, Dashiell

GORGEOUS RELAXING HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
This place is incredible. A beautiful home in the most serene, beautiful setting. The owner and caretaker could not have been more accommodating to our every need. Fairlee is charming and the area around here is the most picturesque in the state. We will be back. A perfect spot for a relaxing, romantic break.
The photos do not do justice to this place. You have to see it. Just bring your toothbrush.

Owner's Response: Hi Aimee. Thank you for the kind review, it was great to have you and your husband here to celebrate your wedding anniversary over the 4th of July. The house has a spectacular view of the annual fireworks display - I'm glad you could experience that and also appreciate how relaxing and peaceful a spot Lochview is. Please come back and see us soon in Fairlee. There's lots more to explore. Write when you know your plans - will be happy to offer a discount for your next visit. Best, Dashiell

LOCHVIEW - BETTER THAN THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
We’ve just spent 6 days at Lochview, and we can only fully endorse the previous four 5 star reviews. In fact Lochview deserves 6 stars. The venue and the house are stunning – especially in the Fall. I don’t think we’ve ever stayed in a better equipped and clean property. The house is spacious, tastefully decorated and furnished with every modern convenience you could need for your stay. The kitchen dining area is terrific with absolutely everything you’d want to host a dinner party if you felt that way inclined. Given its location it also boasts a very reliable and fast internet connection, with a landline to receive calls and make local and free-phone calls. The bedrooms and bathrooms are delightful,l and came with crisp fresh bed linen and a generous supply of towels. – and plenty of hot water! As others have said, the views are stunning, as is the property’s surrounding woodland. Waking up to the balcony view of the lake as the sun broke through the early morning mist, was a joy. The property is ideally placed for visiting all the best Vermont and New Hampshire sites. The town of Fairlee is less than 10 minutes drive away, with plenty of places to eat, gas stations, a grocery store, a bank etc. Driving in Vermont is stress free with very little traffic and good roads, so you can quickly reach all the favourite visitor spots. Dashiell the owner was incredibly quick in responding to any emails and offered a host of useful advice about things to do and see in Vermont. Likewise Hink her caretaker who lives locally, was also very helpful and friendly. When we arrived home our deposit had already been returned to our bank account – and that must be a first! Normally we wouldn’t comment on another visitor’s review as everyone has different standards and expectations. However there’s always a time to make an exception. Judging by our experience and that of the four other guest reviews we can only conclude from Carrie’s 1 star review that she was either very unlucky or possibly stayed in the wrong house. Lochview can be recommended with total confidence.

Owner's Response: Harry and Linda, Your review surpasses any owners expectations - what can I say? Thank you so very much for everything mentioned and the photos you sent. Autumn is the most special time in Vermont - you picked a great time to come (early October) when the days are warm and the nights cool, the views open up as the leaves fall and the colours on the hillside are just spectacular. I hope we see you again on your next American adventure. And tell all your British friends about your trip - we do accept pound sterling and welcome visitors from abroad. Take care, Dashiell
