Nestled in the green Vermont hills above the Connecticut River, Lake Morey Resort provides the perfect girlfriend getaway any time of the year.
In case you aren’t familiar with Lake Morey, its claim to fame is the longest ice skating trail in the United States.
Lake Morey Resort has asked 8 Women Dream to make you aware of their “Girls Take the Greens” vacation package.
The Lake Morey Resort is located on a beautiful 600-acre lake and it’s the perfect way to see some of the most beautiful country in the Eastern United States.
Farlee, where Lake Morey is located was one of the New Hampshire grants, Fairlee was chartered by Governor Benning Wentworth on September 9, 1761 and awarded to Josiah Channey, Joseph Hubbard and 62 others. It was first settled in 1766. On February 25, 1797, the western half was set off as West Fairlee.
The population was 575 by 1859, when it had several sawmills, a gristmill, and an establishment for lead pipe and pumps. The Fairlee Railroad Depot was built in 1848 by the Connecticut & Passumpsic Rivers Railroad. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998, it is the oldest surviving railroad structure along the Connecticut River.(Source: Wikipedia)
Lake Morey Resort, itself, is more than 100 years old with third generation family ownership. In addition to reknowned Vermont hospitality, this year-round resort features 130 guest rooms, a dining room with panoramic lake views, an 18-hole championship golf course (home to the Vermont Open for over 50 years), a 120-seat indoor movie theater and a wide range of seasonal outdoor activities.
Lake Morey Resort wants to invite women who love the outdoors to gather their girlfriends, moms, daughters and/or sisters and “take the greens” for a non-traditional girl’s trip filled with adventurous activities.
You can practice your swing on the golf course, take in the views of the surrounding Green Mountains while fishing, enjoy stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking on the lake, and hike through lush greenery on nearby hiking trails.
It’s a great way for busy women to disconnect from our everyday lives and recharge through nature.
