Lake Champlain has so much to offer, not to mention the beauty surrounding the area. Our family loves all the outdoor opportunities this area offers: great skiing in the winter; hiking, biking, boating, and swimming in the summer; antiquing and 'leaf peeping' in the fall; and gearing up for summer in the spring!
With over 100 miles of waterfront, Lake Champlain varies in water quality, views, and accessibility. Unique to our area is the proximity to the Basin Harbor Resort with its restaurants, championship golf, and even onsite museum. Make new friends at The Red Mill restaurant (live entertainment most weekends in the summer) or go for a long solitary jog or bike ride along the rarely traveled country roads. In the winter/spring, you can plan a day trip to some of the best skiing mountains in Vermont! Mad River Glen (Ski it if you can!) and the Middlebury Snowbowl are within an hour drive, and Jay Peak is within 2 hours.
Whether you want total relaxation or a high energy vacation you'll find this the perfect place to be!
Enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and the year round beauty right from your front door. The unique location offers so much within walking distance. A championship golf course, museum, restaurants, walking/biking/jogging trails all with a view!
