Upright piano invites music making. Stone beach allows for swimming and small boat launching .
Dock. Two launching sites for larger boats elsewhere on Island.
We had a wonderful family reunion here, with seven adults, one seven-year-old and four children under two. There was room for all in the house; the proximity to the large garden and our own beach was very special. Steps from the yard lead down to a rocky beach and dock but there was a secure gate at the top of the steps to keep small children from going to the beach alone. Someone was out fishing in the rowboat every day; our grandson caught his first fish (smallmouth Bass). We had morning coffee in the Adirondack chairs on the porch, ate dinners at the picnic table in the yard, and had bonfires in the evenings on the beach, where we watched the moon rise over Lake Champlain.
We explored the island and were fascinated by the fossils.We enjoyed a Sunday concert at Fisk Farm and a visit to St. Anne's Shrine. On a rainy day we drove into Burlington (1 hour away) and took the children to the ECHO Aquarium and Science Center. We were pleased that the house was fairly secluded and the people we did see were friendly and polite. The house is well-equipped with all that we needed, from books to cookware to life preservers for the boats. We hope to return if we can get everyone together again.
The house is exactly as described, and the price is very reasonable. Debbie, the owner, is extremely solicitous and a pleasure to deal with. The house is large and comfortable. This house faces east on Isle la Motte, so there are beautiful sunrise views. The side deck and yard are great in the afternoon to enjoy a drink and a good book while the kids play. The beach is secluded. There are food markets and ice cream shops in close proximity, as well as the state park. For the runners out there, the road on which the house sits is awesome for a morning run along the shore. We took two families (6 kids) up last year and will be returning this summer.
My husband, children, and I vacationed in this home for a week in July 2011 . The house is very private, with no other homes in sight. We have 4 children, and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home and yard are well kept, and Deb is very helpful and accomodating! We're returning for a week this summer, and are looking forward to it!
