3 Possible Entries

1) SLEEP - Accommodation Listings - Lake Morey Resort

Lake Morey Resort (aka the Inn)

1 Clubhouse Road, Fairlee, VT 05045

From Hartford and points South: Take I-91 North to Exit 15 in Vermont. Turn left off exit ramp. Take first right (granite Lake Morey Resort sign on corner). Follow the golf course (on left) and take your first left onto Clubhouse Rd. Resort is on the right.

+1 800-423-1211 OR +1 802-333-4311

Check in - 3 pm
Check out - 11 am
(same times for entire week)

The rates vary for and during the season, a classic room in the summer ranges from $124-$170. This includes both breakfast and dinner and all recreation uses and greens fees. In the winter its $109.

This is the best (and only) place to stay in the area. Despite the monopoly, the Inn actually has a great atmosphere. Pool and hot tub are superfluous with the lake and all the activities it offers, and the accompanying golf course is where the Vermont Open takes place.

2.) DO -Fairlee Town Beach

Passing through Massachusetts
Entering Vermont

Take exit 15 toward US-5/Fairlee/Orford NH

6.Turn right at Blood Brook Rd

+1 802-333-9416

Free! This is the town beach. It's modest, boasting two long docks and sectioned off lanes in between, a small beach area, a picnic area, and swingsets. There is a clubhouse and often cookouts and general activities going on here. A simple way to occupy your family for the day.

3) DO - Aloha Foundation Camps
(aka Aloha, Aloha Hive, Lanakila, Hulbert Outdoor Center)

2968 Lake Morey Road
Fairlee is on the banks of the Connecticut River, 25 miles north of White River Junction on Interstate 91. The Aloha Foundation is easy to reach from Boston, New York or Montreal via Interstates 89, 91 and 93.

+1 802 333-3400
Fax: +1 802 333-3404

Fees: Full session: $8,375 Half session: $5,625

The Aloha camps are a fantastic place to dump your snotty kids for the summer and have them come out the other end with practical skills and a taste for humble pie. Wide range of activities, mostly outdoor oriented. For girls and boys.

These would have to be put in Wikitravel format to be acceptable. Also, I'm not sure if the last entry is acceptable because while it is a feature of the town, it is not really traveler oriented. Jury's still out.
