The carriage barn is a unique rental as it has a mixture of modern and vintage charm. There is a large living room with a game table area at the side. The dining room will seat 6-8 people. There is also a window seat there to look over the vast lawns and gardens. The galley kitchen has all modern appliances. A breakfast bar allows for quick meals or a bar set-up for evenings. The bathroom has a vintage soaking tub or a shower for those that don't want to relax. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom. The second bedroom is called the Bunkie Room as it is equipped with two sets of bunk beds. The balcony overlooks the lake and is a great place to watch the great sunsets that happen most nights. On the beach, there is a large area to play in the sand or to lay in the sun. A dock is there to sit on or to tie up a boat or kayak. There is also a deck to sit and enjoy the beauty of the lake and the passing of the many boats that use this lake.
The Carriage Barn is set in an area that is just made to vacation in. There are so many things that you can do when you have a beautiful lake. Our grounds and gardens including flowers and berries are well cared for so that you can just sit and enjoy life. The only thing that you have to leave for is to shop for groceries! The drive back will make up for your time away.
Our Carriage Barn is a year round rental so it is a nice winter getaway whether you want to go ice fishing or skiing or skating. The lake is a great place to look at in the winter and read a book or do some handwork -- just a great escape from the real world! Or, spend the holidays here -- Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Valentine's Day just to name a few. Our Carriage Barn is the perfect place to do practically anything or nothing at all.
Isle LaMotte is truly an island with a post office and a store that makes up the center of town with 2 churches and several little places to eat ice cream or a local cafe for breakfast and lunch. There is one restaurant on the island. However, there is lots to see and do if you like to be outside such as the reef or there is St. Anne's Shrine. Or you can use the Alburgh Country Club for some golfing. There is always walking, swimming and bicycling! The lake is a fun place to kayak or canoe as there are always thinks to look at or birds to watch such as the Blue Heron an Osprey or even an Eagle if you are among the lucky people to see one.
Shopping is something that you must leave the island to do unless you use the farmer's markets which have quite a variety of items. Plattsburgh, NY or Burlington, VT have big malls and lots of choices either outlet shopping or just the regular shopping.
