We loved our stay here! It is close enough to Burlington to offer convenient shopping and dining, but far enough away that you feel peaceful and relaxed. The place was very clean and the appliances all new and in great shape. We were delighted to have air conditioning in the master bedroom as well. We had good fishing on the property and a short drive to Sandbar State Park and the "Gut" drawbridge for more fishing options. A&B Grocery, just up the road in Grand Isle, provides for all your food needs, and there's even Bill's Bait Shop behind the grocery for your tackle and licenses. We didn't make it to the Blue Paddle as recommended, but we did make it to Pan's South Hero Pizza, which is AWESOME. We highly recommend grabbing a pie from them and enjoying it on the deck. Seb's Snack Bar near the house is OK, but for creemee connoisseurs like us, Al's French Frys in Burlington was worth the drive. The dog also loved his time here, splashing in the lake (a surprise since he normally hates water) and chasing his ball on the expansive lawns. Keep in mind the house does not include a water craft, but we found you can rent boats at Ladd's Landing up the road in Grand Isle if you want to do more fishing or exploring.
