Three story historic private 100-year-old rustic lake cottage at the North end of Lake Morey. Private artesian well and septic system. Beginning with the top floor: 4 bedrooms, sleeps 10 adults, and share 2 full bathrooms. Two lakeside bedrooms share a large porch. One lake side bedroom has a king-sized bed with a ceiling fan, the other bedroom has two twin beds and a twin day bed with trundle. The lakeside bedrooms have the only air conditioning units in the home. The two bedrooms across the hall from the lakeside rooms each have queen sized beds. There are several portable electrical fans to move around as needed, including a large commercial floor fan.
The main living floor has a ½ bath, large living and dining space with a dining table that seats 8 and a smaller table for two. There is a large sectional sofa with a Smart TV, satellite TV and WIFI. From the living and dining area you walk through the library, which contains a love seat that folds out into a twin sized bed, to the kitchen. The kitchen is in the back of the building with a full-size refrigerator (NO ice maker.) gas stove and oven, dishwasher, coffee pot, toaster and microwave. Pots, pans, assorted dishes, platters, glasses – including wine and champagne, coffee cups, silverware and utensils make preparing meals, entertaining and lobster dinners easy. One additional refrigerator on the lakeside porch, WITH an ice maker, behind the bar, make storing all that party food and beverages easy. There is a room off the kitchen that contains the washer and dryer and a place for trash and recycling.
The porch! One of the best on the lake! Refrigerator, bar and large vintage Coke cooler just add ice. The best place on the lake for July 4th fireworks!
If you are not familiar with Lake Morey or Fairlee, Vermont you can go to the Town’s website for Town information and events. July 4th is a great time to visit to enjoy the parade (or be in the parade!) and view the fireworks from the porch in the evening. Bring your boat and and keep it at our private dock. Great skiing and fishing. In Town is Wings Market for groceries and Chapman’s Store for fun eclectic gifts and wine. In the next town north, Bradford, is a large Hannaford Grocery with a full liquor store.
Trash and recycling service is available and will be discussed at the time of your booking and will differ depending on the length of your stay. . 7 night minimum. Monthly available. Weekly cleaning available for longer stays at your expense.
The un-fun adult stuff: This is not a “child proofed” home and you must be able to use stairs – we have lots of stairs and THE LAKE. You are welcome to bring your young family but be mindful of your location. Pack a bag and come and enjoy our lake house and make memories you will never forget! (Currently the basement is not available for rental and remains our personal space and storage.)
