My wife and I stayed in the Little House for a week in early September 2014. The house itself is quaint and immaculate. It has everything you'll need.
We used it as a base to venture out and take in all the beauty of Vermont. We even drove to Montreal for an overnight stay.
We take our bikes on vacations (they have bikes at the house for you to use). Bikes are a great way to see and experience Vermont. Montreal is a great city to bike. Its only a little over an hours drive from Isle la Motte. The city has what seems like endless dediated, paved bike paths. We biked Isle la Motte and the other islands. We biked the Missisquoi Rails to Trails.
Isle la Motte and this house proved to be a great choice for a "get away from it all vacation". You can enjoy the simplicity, unpretentious natural beauty and quietness it offers. You can be active and explore. You can be rejuvinated as we were.
Alex was so accommodating and a joy to meet.
What a combination for a great vacation for this North Carolina couple!
