Ohana Means Family

A country retreat of great natural beauty, Ohana was built in the early 1900s primarily as lodging for families with children at the many Vermont summer camps then operating around Lake Fairlee.

Known originally as Shanty Shane, the property was described in a brochure of the day as a “vacation camp for adults and families in the hills of the high country west of the Connecticut River, with cozy little houses built for two or more, and a main hall on such a height as to afford a view unsurpassed in New England.”

The property currently comprises nineteen rustic guest cabins, six tent cabins, a handsome historic dining lodge, and a variety of outbuildings on 112 acres of woods, fields and waterfront, with grand views of the Middlebrook river valley and the mountains to the west.
