4.8 stars...amazing summer family retreat.
This property was so great for our family vacation...three grandparents, three children and their partners, three grandchildren, and rooms and baths to spare!
A sampling of our week...
We went fishing and caught a huge pike and plenty of perch right in front of the house.
We went sailing out of Ladd's Marina down the road in Grand Isle.
We had picnics at Alburgh Dunes State Park and St. Anne's Shrine.
We went biking all over the islands.
We took a quick trip into Montreal for lunch and shopping.
We launched a ski boat just down the road and tied it up at the private dock right in front of the house.
We had huge family dinners on the patio every night while we watched the sunset over the lake.
We had a bonfire in the back yard (also played Bocci and horseshoes and volleyball back there).
The only thing that kept this rating from being 5 stars was the tap water and the road...
There is not a well on the property so we had to use bottled water for drinking, brushing teeth, and raw food prep. Not a big deal, really...with 12 people in the house we still only went through 1 gallon per person.
The other concern we had was the road that we had to cross to get to the dock/lake. During the day, not busy at all, but nights and weekends was a different story. Again, not a big deal, just had to make certain the kids were playing in the back yard and were always accompanied down to the lake.
All in all an amazing bargain...a place like this could easily fetch $4000/week further south on the lake...$6000 on Sunapee, Sebago, or Winnepesauke...and even more on the cape!
