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.

The Lake Morey boat launch is 1/2m away and is open to the public, with parking free of charge.

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.
Lochview was the ideal vacation destination for us: 2 couples who are long-time friends in need of an escape from our busy routines. Lockview looks and feels old fashioned, but it is a modern home. Upon entering the house, one realizes immediately you are in Dashiell's home, not just any vacation rental. Lochview was well maintained and contained all the amenities we needed. As with any home there were a few very minor issues, however, there was not a single concern that was not addressed immediately by Hink, the caretaker who lives just down the mountain or by Dashiell via email. We give Lochview a 5 out of 5 rating with one single caveat: it is Vermont, not Disney World. For the right couple(s), it is the perfect setting in which to cook, eat, listen to music and nature, read, relax on a porch or in front of a fire, and from which to hike, enjoy the views of the lake down below, or explore the beauty of the surrounding Vermont and New Hampshire countryside.
We rented Lochview after other accommodations fell through and we're glad we did. The house was well maintained, well-equipped, clean and quiet.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the wooded seclusion of Lochview and the surrounding area of VT and NH. The home is well kept and located out in the woods a short distance from Lake Morey, which you can see from the house. Everything is as indicated in the listing. A great place to relax and get away from things and/or to use to go around the beautiful countryside and see the sights, state parks, waterfalls, lakes, etc. There is a wonderful small stream and small waterfall in the woods behind the house and you can hear the trickle of the water from the house. A fabulous home in a fabulous location.
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.
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!
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.
An original Drive in movie theatre on the Fairlee / Bradford borders. Not to be missed!!
