Although we did not go to the lake house, my daughter and I did go to Grand Isle state park which is on an island in the middle of beautiful Lake Champlain. We had a delightful swim in the lake and enjoyed exploring this beautiful park.The island is accessible by car.

This is one of the most beautiful venues you can imagine for a wedding. Sadly, when I was here, it was raining but still we had a great time. I spent the night at the lakehouse and the next morning I was able to experience the beauty first hand. During breakfast I took my coffee outside and sat in the... More

Once upon a time beginning with its construction in 1903 this was a grand old hotel, then a girls' summer camp, and now a lovely Vermont Inn where events such as weddings, corporate retreats, wine tastings, etc. are held. I spent many wonderful summers at this location when I was... More

A nostalgic turn of the century hotel carefully preserved for use as a wedding venue. FABULOUS food and service. Best wedding I've attended, hands down.

Historical and lovely. Went to a wedding here: everything was perfect: food top notch (I'm an ex-chef) the staff worked like crazy, but invisibly so the day just flowed. A wonderful place.

Gorgeous mountain views on the lake. GILH offers a memorable event with really relaxing atmosphere. It feels like visiting family. I think it was pricey for what we were wanting. Ultimately, my daughter chose Basin Harbor for her wedding with so many people traveling from out of state and country.
