Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, the house is a large, beautifully decorated historic home. There are three acres of expansive lawns with flower gardens and an organic vegetable patch. The 600 feet of private shoreline adjoin the Missiquoi National Wildlife Refuge and the deck and dock are great places to watch herons, near-by nesting osprey and the occasional bald eagle.
Nearly every room provides lovely views of the lake and the Green Mountain range. The kitchen has granite countertops, a four oven AGA cooker, and there is a teak table that seats 10. There is an additional pantry kitchen with an electric oven, and a second large refrigerator.
The 60 foot long screened-in porch has wicker furniture, a hammock, and a dining table.
There are two living rooms, one with a wood burning fireplace, plenty of books and board games. The second is even larger and has a gas fireplace, baby grand piano, and french doors leading to an open deck.
The south lawn is very flat and provides a perfect setting for tented events or a game of soccer.
An experienced catering staff is available if you would like meals provided.
We rented the entire place for our whole family for a week and it was amazing! There was 10 of us and we had plenty of space - all with our own bedrooms and most with our own bathrooms. We love to cook and eat big meals together and the dining area and kitchen were great for that. The kitchen has this cool AGA stove which was amazing to cook on once you got the hang of it.
There was plenty of stuff to do right on the property - canoe, bike rides, walks - plus you aren't far from Montreal, Burlington and other cool activities like Audible Chasm and the indoor water park at Jay Peak.
But if you are looking for the hustle and bustle of a crowded tourist area this isn't for you. Grocery stores and shopping aren't close but if you prepare correctly you hardly notice.
Guarantee we will be returning for another family vacation.
The property is adjacent to the 6600 acre Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge where there are hiking trails, boating routes and the largest heron rookery in the eastern US.
We are only a few miles from the Canadian border and the wine and cheese trails of Quebec.
There are three golf courses within a short driving distance and 10 more within 35 miles.
There are a number of fine restaraunts within a 30 min drive--on both sides of the border
