We had a wonderful week at your LaMotte Retreat Home - beautiful setting and very comfortable
We had a great week on Lake Champlain. The weather was perfect and every evening
we looked at a gorgeous sunset! Everyone enjoyed the water, and it was a good week to
Be refreshed by the lake. The kids played on the rafts, went fishing & kayaking.
Every evening we had some great meals that we all took turns preparing. We used the herbs from the garden that added a lot of great flavor to our meals. The owner of the Maya
Center was very hospitable. She wanted her guests to be as comfortable as possible.
This place is very roomy, loved all the porches! It is a great house for a large group, you
Can always find a place to relax. We would recommend this place to any family who
enjoys having lots of room& wants a cozy setting! Best part is the Lake is right in front
of the House to enjoy at your leisure!
A beautiful well taken care of home with the most amazing views on Lake Champlain. Lots of space in this home! We had plenty of space for 18 people. If you are looking for peace and tranquility then this is the place!
I would highly recommend booking your stay and enjoying a peaceful restorative getaway or vacation. We just finished a 5 day stay and WOW WOW WOW!!!!
The property is excellent, rather you wish to simple experience a single room, or rent the whole property, attention to detail and your comfort is felt throughout.
The location offers the best of the best: a small Island on Lake Champlain, Northern Vermont (Burlington is close by), Upstate New York and only miles from the jewel of Quebec, Montreal.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Maya Center and would have been happy to stay on a few more days. The property is well maintained and lovely. The owner was so very helpful in every way and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend it for a special event, a social gathering or just a getaway. We look forward to returning again soon.
This delightful retreat is located on beautiful Lake Champlain. I feel so blessed to have heard about it and get the opportunity to spend three days there. During those three days I received the best massage I've ever had, as well as Reiki, meditation, restorative yoga and aromatherapy, ate the most amazingly healthy gourmet meals, enjoyed walks on the gorgeous grounds and the beach, picked apples from the backyard orchard, while enjoying my own private room filled with antiques, and relaxed in a whirlpool bathtub. There are two houses with beautiful rooms and I was fortunate to stay in the main house with friends. Jeanette is the most wonderful cook and hostess, and she made us all feel right at home. I would highly recommend a stay here, whether you are in need of a healing retreat as I was, or just want to get away for a few days to relax. The rates are very reasonable, and I plan to return again and again.
We rented the property (the main and the carriage house) for a family reunion with family members traveling from afar. It was a perfect place for us to stay. The house was clean, comfortably furnished and had plenty of room and space for all 20 family members. We loved all of the screened porches, particularly having morning coffee on the front porch. The back porch is enclosed and was great for our large family meals together. Safe too -as the kids could run around while we were in back grilling. We also rented the carriage house which gave us two more kitchens and lots more space for everyone. We had a great time boating, canoeing, walking, biking. The short distance to Montreal made day trips easy. It is a superb place for large family get togethers!
