Lake Morey Masterpiece
This Lake Morey Masterpiece is undoubtedly the finest lakefront property in the Upper Valley, located at the southern end of Lake Morey, site of the old Rutledge Inn & Densmores Casino, with the best views of the lake and mountains.
This house is situated on a 2-acre parcel with 305 feet of level sandy beach waterfront, a boat and a swimming dock. The residence is an exquisite shingle-style that was built in 2004 with 4,873 square feet, four bedrooms and six bathrooms.
The interior finishes are exceptional with hand-painted stenciled wood floor, reclaimed hemlock from the old casino used in the flooring and custom cabinetry, 18-foot ceilings in the living room, and a floor-to-ceiling sandstone and granite fireplace. The living room is open and flows easily out the French doors and into the back yard. Aside from the spacious living room, the home is also equipped with a quiet, private study and parlor area.
Featuring four spacious, ensuite bedrooms, and a flexible loft space, this home can comfortably sleep 10 guests. The Master bedroom with his and her bathrooms is fit with a King bed, the second suite is fit with a King, the third bedroom is fit with a King and shares a hall bathroom with the fourth bedroom, which is fit with two twins that can be adjusted into a King-size bed. Additionally there are two full beds on the third floor, and a pull-out sofa bed in the media room. When the weather permits however, you might find yourself drifting off to sleep on the screened porch that overlooks the lake.
Outdoor living spaces take advantage of the view: wrap around porch, kitchen screened porch, fieldstone patio, and outdoor stone fireplace from the old Inn. The boathouse provides excellent storage with a bathroom, sink and plenty of room for boats.

Champion largemouth bass, northern pike, pickerel, smallmouth bass and walleye have held state records from Lake Morey. The shallow lake is an excellent warm-water fishery, although brown trout are sometimes caught.

The 4.5-mile groomed skating loop takes skaters from the edge of the Lake Morey Resort out into the reaches of the lake, with uninterrupted views of the White Mountains nearby. The Ice Skating Trail is the site of an annual Winter Fest in January, weather and ice conditions permitting. The trail also hosts speed skating marathons when ice conditions allow. Ice fishing, of course, is always popular. Lake Morey now ranks among the top-19 natural ice rinks in the world.
Away from the lakefront, a variety of activities such as hiking and cycling keeps the visitor's interest.

We loved the home and all its beauty, however it was offered in a very cold month. The area would be better to visit in the fall or warmer months. Some places we visited were limited because of weather, ice and snow. However, what we did visit was lovely such as Quechee, Woodstock and Hanover. We flew into Lebanon and it was an easy drive. We prepared some meals at home and groceries were near the airport. The owners were lovely via text and emails sharing information about the home and the area. Vermont is a beautiful state. ”
Lovely Lake Morey
We throughly enjoyed our stay at this fantastic property. The house is spacious and extremely comfortable with wonderful details throughout. It was as if you were at your own private resort! We enjoyed all the area has to offer (hiking, biking, canoeing, paddle boarding, tennis, and even swimming). Evenings were great with cozy fires indoors and outdoors, spectacular star gazing, and delicious dinners prepared in the gourmet kitchen. There are also a number of very good small restaurants in the area. Thank you Laura and Neil for a wonderful week!”
