Many of us may only visit Fairlee to go to camp, others have ventured into town with family and friends. No matter how much you have explored, Fairlee is special to us all.

Are you missing Fairlee this summer? Longing for long hot days by the water, hiking the mountains and trails, walking around the lake, or watching the sunset. Thinking of enjoying an ice cream at Gladstone Creamery or the Whippi Dip, indulging in a huge breakfast at the Fairlee Diner, popping into Wing’s or the Lunchbox for a sandwich, picking out a one-of-a-kind gift at Chapman’s, enjoying dinner at Samurai Soulfood, or any of the other wonderful things Fairlee has to offer?

Fairlee misses you too! This summer will be a challenge for the town, as it is for many places. Fairlee is missing the arrival and energy of summer visitors. It will be a quite 4th of July weekend this year as we adapt to the needs of social distancing. Our businesses and restaurants are without their usual influx of customers and the Whippi Dip has sadly announced it will not reopen.

Show some love for our little town under the cliff and help local businesses and our community by letting them know that many folks are counting down the days until they can make their way back to the 05045.

Send Fairlee a love note – let the community know what you love about the town, share a favorite memory or place to visit, send a picture of a great time here. We would like to collect enough messages to print, laminate, and post them around town. Let’s flood our second home with positivity and hope!

  1. I have spent some part of the last fifty two summers at Lake Fairlee, beginning with seven blissful summers at Lochearn Camp, where I learned all the important life lessons.
    Wherever I am, I can go to Lake Fairlee in my head and in my heart, and just the thought of her grounds me with a magnetism like the North Star.
    I these turbulent times, defined by anxiety and fear, there is a palpable hope that lies on the shores of Lake Fairlee.
    As the sun shines, and the wind whispers through the pines, it is as if she were saying, “I will wait for you…”
