My husband and I followed our hearts and purchased the original cabin in 1986 as a young couple with two small boys. Our family grew with the addition of two more boys, and together we enjoyed campfires, our pontoon boat, and wiffle ball games on the large lawn. Many changes have occurred in recent years; the cabin was replaced with a spacious home in 2007, our boys have gone off to college and moved away, and my husband and I sold our family home in Vermont and moved to New Hampshire. Finding that we are not able to return to the lake often we decided to share our beautiful and relaxing getaway with others.

Mary and Don Russell purchased this house in 1986

Although neither of us had ever been to the Island of Isle La Motte, we immediately fell in love with Blanchard Bay. Over the years our family has created lasting memories; taking advantage of uninterrupted time together without the pressures of everyday life. To this day I immediately relax as I pull in the driveway just knowing the hammock is waiting for me.

Located on a private dead-end road as well as a protected bay, our home has easy access to the lake via a boat ramp. With 225 feet of lakeshore and over an acre of land, there's plenty of room for lawn games and the kids to run around. Oh, and we LOVE the screen house and fire pit added in 2012!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect setting for a relaxing vacation! The house itself was in perfect condition with everything needed to make meals and relax. The outside furniture, gazebo, fire pit and lake access were perfect for our entire family to enjoy time together. I hope to come back next summer for another perfect getaway!

Beautiful Home for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week long vacation with our children and their children,the youngest of whom was just 16 mos. The house was immaculately clean and the main living area is open and spacious. There was plenty of room in two of the bedrooms to put down air mattresses for the kids to sleep on and the beds were comfy - also all made up when we got there, which I so appreciated. The kitchen had everything we needed to fix meals for the week and we also used the fairly large grill. There were small and thoughtful touches throughout the house and we never needed to buy anything other than the food for meals.
We brought bikes, a boat, and a kayak, went fishing, tubing, and water skiing. There are flower beds, a humming bird feeder just outside the slider, and raspberry bushes that the kids checked every day for ripe berries. I wish I could have stayed longer. It's a lovely spot on Lake Champlain and would highly recommend it

Home on Isle La Motte

  • 5 of 5
Lovely home, lovely setting. We were right on the water yet off the main roads so very quiet and it felt private yet not too secluded. We thoroughly enjoyed the fire pit and biked all over the island, islands and north off island to Canada. Only 1 hour from Montreal and that was a fun day trip.

We wish we had brought our kayaks, the weather was so warm!

Owners helpful with instructions and ideas in advance.

Highly recommend this well-furnished, charming and comfortable home for anyone looking for a lakeside vacation.

Beautiful

My wife and two young children and I spent a lovely week in this home. This house is very well designed with lovely views of the lake, large lawn, screened in gazebo with great hammock, a fire pit for night time story reading and S'mores, and large lawn for throwing a softball. We rented a motorboat from a local marina and kept it at the house for a few days which was perfect. Recommend it highly.

Something for everyone...

  • 5 of 5
We took advantage of many activities available on the island: kayaking, biking, swimming, fishing, golf, sampling the local cuisine, sightseeing, games of Bocce in the shady, spacious front yard. But there were also ample opportunities to kick back and relax: gorgeous sunrises and sunsets over the lake; meals on the patio; a good book in one of the hammocks; S'Mores at the fire pit after dark.

The owners provided indoor and outdoor games, books, and many other amenities which added to our enjoyment, as well as a very helpful binder containing information about the house and the area. Located on a private, dead end road, the house is very peaceful and private. We would highly recommend this lovely, well-equipped and welcoming home to anyone who needs a relaxing week! We will definitely consider a return visit!
