My wife and I recently headed north from Connecticut for an overnight stay in Vermont. I stumbled upon the website for the Silver Maple Lodge and the prices seemed reasonable (especially the off-season “Last Minute Special” rate). Especially important for us is that a few of the cottages have fireplaces and all are pet-friendly.
The place is located by the highway, but the windows keep out the traffic noise. But when opened, it’s noisy. This could be a potential pitfall if visiting during the summer. But overall the cottages were delightful — quaint but also very modern. The wood even comes prestacked in the fireplace with newspaper and kindling, and they leave a bundle on the porch as replacement. The cottages are not separate, rather they are 2 adjoined units. Even so, noise from neighbors isn’t an issue as the walls are quite thick.
Scott, the owner, is a wonderful host. Very helpful. And Fairlee is convenient to Lake Morey, fine hiking trails, Dartmouth University and the beautiful Quichee Gorge area. Also, Montpelier is about a 45-minute drive away. The only major snag we ran into is almost everything in town (which isn’t a lot) closes early. Our dinner plans became whatever we could scrounge at the nearby gas station, as Leda’s, the restaurant next door, closed at 8. Other than that, we had a wonderful time.
