About Sara Comeau
Our extended family has vacationed and lived on Poor Farm Road for over 70 years. The owners purchased the home for their family to enjoy on year-round visits to Vermont (especially for Island events in the summer and ice fishing in the winter) and we have since moved to back to the area.
Sara Comeau purchased this house in 2007
Why Sara Comeau chose Alburg
It's an easy, simple house to enjoy. There are both large spaces and cozy ones that meet the needs of large and small families. The easterly view only feet from Lake Champlain is fabulous, especially at sun rise and sun set. The road is great for walking and biking. You may even want to take a plane ride with our neighbor!
What makes this house unique
The Islands are still a gem unknown to most people, so it is still intimate and very relaxed. That said, in recent years, more services have developed to cater to visitors' interests -- restaurants, galleries, water sports, events for families, craft and music festivals, and the like. South Alburgh is also very central to many of the region's offerings -- lakes, mountains, bike paths, southern Quebec, New York's Adirondacks, and north western Vermont (including Burlington).
