Beautiful waterfront home situated on 600+ feet of private lake front, with views of both sunrise and sunset right from the lakeside deck and grassy terraced lawn. The property features an 11 acre mix of meadow, woods and water with fruit trees, foot paths & wildflowers.
Directly in front of the house is some of the best fishing on Lake Champlain -- bass, pike, and walleye.
The house boasts two decks, a large downstairs master suite, open floorplan, fully equipped kitchen and three additional bedrooms upstairs, including a sleeping loft.

Our family purchased this land 23 years ago with the intention of creating a place for friends and family to be together in beautiful natural surroundings. We look forward to sharing it with you.
The Owner purchased this house in 1989
My family (wife, mother, stepfather, sister, Charlie our dog) and I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house at the end of August 2014. We had never been to this part of the U.S. It was a beautiful drive up from New York City. Coming from the south Isle La Motte is one of the more remote Champlain Islands and you have to cross multiple causeways. While the area is remote it is certainly not wilderness. On the other hand, it is not a place where you can drive a couple of miles and easily find a place to eat or buy groceries.
The house has a great layout and it is perfect for the type of family trip we imagined. The large 1st floor living space and the open kitchen make for a perfect shared experience. The house has all the necessities and more in abundance. It doesn't have cable TV. For some of us this was a surprise.
The property is right on the lake and going out on the deck and catching the breeze and the sun shining off the lake was a favorite thing to do. The deck was also the site for a memorable barbecue.
We did some fun things while there: renting kayaks and rowboats, hiking around the Mt. Stowe area (admittedly a bit of a drive), eating out at the local restaurants (good if not great cooking).
We were a bit disappointed by the lack of local farmer's markets and fresh produce, but perhaps, we didn't know where to go.
All in all, while the area didn't WOW us; our consensus was the house and its comforts were GREAT and for that reason I've given 5 stars.
We really enjoyed out three night stay. It was very relaxing and comfortable. Easy commute to Burlington or Stowe for entertainment. The house has everything you would need, especially if you are bringing youngsters (we left ours with the grandparents for the trip). Would gladly stay here again if we are in the area.
We had a very delightful stay in the Lake House ! Very peaceful, great location, splendid landscape. The Lake House is very comfortable and spacious. We enjoyed our diners on the large deck overlooking the lake and the beautiful sunsets. Autumn, the owner, was very helpful and communicative to set us up at the house. We didn't have the pleasure to meet Autumn but hopefully will have the opportunity upon our next visit. Everything was perfect. Highly recommended ! Can't wait to go back.
Let's begin with our arrival. After our drive up from NYC, we were exhausted! Naturally we took a tour of the house, and when we got into the kitchen, we discovered to our delight, a welcome note, yummy local chocolates, and jams, and all sorts of goodies :) The house itself is spacious, clean, and well maintained. But it's all about the great outdoors here. There is a great patio/deck area for sunbathing, morning yoga, and al fresco dining. The house is just yards away from the lake, where we got to do some great fishing!! At dusk you will be awed by the most beautiful sunsets you have ever witnessed. I highly recommend this home, it is a very special place and we found it very difficult to leave. Autumn, the home owner, is an absolute delight! She was so attentive and considerate and prompt with any questions we may have had. In short, we are already planning our next stay :)
