The location on Lake Champlain is amazing. The house had everything that we needed for our large family gathering. When we were at the house, we fished on the dock across the street, made s'mores at the fire pit, played volley ball and sat on the front deck to watch the beautiful sunsets! We took amazing day trips to ... Sandy Dune Beach, St Anne Shrine, Fossil Preserve, Church Street in Burlington, Montreal, Spirit of Ethan Allen cruise, Snow Farm Vineyard, Shelburne Farm and Museum, antique shops... all within an hour from the house. We will need a vacation from our vacation! The only negative was the slightly busy road between the house and lake which could be loud at times and dangerous if you have small children but please note that the yard is fenced and gated. We had an amazing time with wonderful memories.
