Immerse yourself in the peaceful sanctuary of this pristine, lakefront home on the southernmost island of Lake Champlain. With a private dock, an outdoor firepit, and a west-facing deck, you'll have front-row seats to every sunset that paints the sky!
Escape from the bustle of daily life for true relaxation on this sparsely-populated island with forests, streams, and over 200 miles of coastline to explore. The nearby town of South Hero is quaint, but you'll find the essentials. This quiet residential neighborhood is perfect for families (please note that quiet hours will be strictly enforced).
The outside of the home is simple, but step inside and you'll be breathless! A warm, rustic interior splashes light around from outside, making you feel welcome instantly. Please note that heat in this home is supplied by a convection stove in the basement and a wood stove on the main level.
The main room features a living area, dining table, and kitchen separated by a half-wall to give it a very spacious feel. Gather around the dining table to play board games, or grab a seat on one of the couches in front of the fire to enjoy a DVD from the collection or browse on WiFi.
In the kitchen you'll find all the amenities you need to cook a family meal, and a dishwasher makes clean up painless. Enjoy the meal at the large dining table inside, or head outside to dine on the deck while listening to the gentle lapping of water. On sunny days, soak up some sun on one of the reclining loungers or swim out to the floating island to practice your dives.
With four bedrooms and two full baths, there is room for up to 10 guests (six adults maximum, please) to enjoy this peaceful retreat. Two bedrooms with lakeviews will each accommodate a small family: the airy master bedroom has a queen bed and two twin beds (one is a trundle), and the second room has a wide twin bed with a canopy, as well as a twin-size trundle.
The two remaining rooms are great for guests to share: one with two full-size futons, and the other with a double bed and a private atmosphere. There is a full bath on each floor for convenience. Pillows, blankets, and all linens are provided.
This island may be quiet, but there is plenty to see. Take a trip to nearby White's Beach to play some volleyball and take a dip in the swim area, or soak up the expansive southern view of Lake Champlain. From here, drive a little farther to Bird House Forest and see the bright birdhouses poised in the trees of the lively swamp. Also nearby is the Snow Farm Winery and Vineyard, famous for their Pinot Noir, Riesling, and ice wine.
For another adventure, head to Castles Island to look at the spectacular miniature castles built to scale by Harry Barber in the early 20th century. Hiking and biking is popular all over the island, but Grand Isle State Park offers particularly exceptional trails. Head across the water to Isle La Motte for a view of St. Anne's Shrine and collections of ancient fossils.
This home is an ideal getaway for a large group, be it one family, a few smaller families, or a tight group of friends looking to relax in peace and splendor. Don't hesitate - book it today!
*Please note that there are no guarantees that the dock will be available to use, as the water level changes seasonally.
