“Pretty venue”
Reviewed 18 November 2008

Bette and Lynne Wood are delightful and hospitable owners of this nineteenth century B&B on the east side of Lake Champlain, a 7-8 mile (?) or so winding road from the main state highway 17 that leads to the lake. (We wondered whether we were on the right road as there is no sign of the lake until we arrived.) We stayed two days in the "private suite," which might be better described as one wing of the Cape Cod that they also occupy. The suite is furnished tastefully with country-"antique" furnishings and provides a spacious, private relaxing open space living cum dining area plan with bright views through the windows of the lake and dock, less than a stone's throw from the door, and the well-kept lawns on three sides. The bedroom and toilet, as expected, are clean and comfortable and are located upstairs but is accessible through a relatively narrow and steep staircase, making it somewhat of a chore to haul up one's luggage (similarly the path from the parking area to the entrance door may be a little difficult for those who need to bring heavy lugggage into the suite, as the path is laid with flagstone.) Bette provided fresh-baked muffins (blueberries being our favorite) along with a selection of cereals and coffee types for a filling continental breakfast. The location is ideal for those who want to get away from it all for a limited time since it is a B&B after all and one does not have a kitchen and restaurants are located quite a distance away.
The town of Milton is a distance (8-10 miles?) and has a couple of fast foods and a pizza business. (We noted a small supermarket in Milton , where presumably one could get take-out food if one wanted to dine at the suite.) We drove to Burlington or to St Albans to dine. St Albans rolls up the streets rather early and forget a Sunday meal there. The location is not proximate to entry into the Lake islands but the drive is well worth it for the scenery and history. However, again, we were dismayed that the region is not very tourist-friendly, with very few restaurants en route on a lengthy day trip of the islands. We have concluded that this part of Red Sox Nation (or those with second homes, possibly misguided pinstripe fans?) in this area are simply happy with their personal situation and are quite happy with their home cooking!

This B & B was perfect for peace and tranquility. Just one guest suite, with lounge/diner, private garden and beach on the shores of Lake Champlain. Boat mooring available if required. Very reasonable rates. The sunset over the lake was beautiful. It made a great stop on our honeymoon.
