"My family (wife, mother, stepfather, sister, Charlie our dog) and I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful house at the end of August 2014. We had never been to this part of the U.S. It was a beautiful drive up from New York City. Coming from the south Isle La Motte is one of the more remote Champlain Islands and you have to cross multiple causeways. While the area is remote it is certainly not wilderness. On the other hand, it is not a place where you can drive a couple of miles and easily find a place to eat or buy groceries.
The house has a great layout and it is perfect for the type of family trip we imagined. The large 1st floor living space and the open kitchen make for a perfect shared experience. The house has all the necessities and more in abundance. It doesn't have cable TV. For some of us this was a surprise.
The property is right on the lake and going out on the deck and catching the breeze and the sun shining off the lake was a favorite thing to do. The deck was also the site for a memorable barbecue.
We did some fun things while there: renting kayaks and rowboats, hiking around the Mt. Stowe area (admittedly a bit of a drive), eating out at the local restaurants (good if not great cooking).
We were a bit disappointed by the lack of local farmer's markets and fresh produce, but perhaps, we didn't know where to go.
All in all, while the area didn't WOW us; our consensus was the house and its comforts were GREAT and for that reason I've given 5 stars."

"A beautiful well taken care of home with the most amazing views on Lake Champlain. Lots of space in this home! We had plenty of space for 18 people. If you are looking for peace and tranquility then this is the place!"

"My family stayed in this rustic and warm home for a long weekend in October and had the time of our lives. You feel isolated from the world on an incredible peninsula with spectacular southwest facing sunlight. We brought our bikes and within just a few minutes ride down quiet West Shore Road, we stumbled across a lovely winery, then an apple orchard, then antique shops... and just a 5 minute drive was wonderful horseback riding through the Fall colours on trails. We enjoyed BBQ meals on the picnic table overlooking the lake, as well as canoe rides and basketball in the yard. We can't wait to return with our other children in 2015!"

"I was there in late October with a group of women friends. We found the house to be spacious and comfortable. Decor was very pleasant. Plenty of seating areas both inside and out. Large, fenced yard for safety of children. Can walk or ride bike out the door as close to bike path. Plenty of sightseeing in the area. Only 6 minutes by car to large supermarket. "Camp" is a term used in Maine for a cottage. This wonderful house is more than a cottage....
I am not sure how late in the year, the house is rented. The house is not insulated and can get cold in spite of using the wood stove and propane heater. We happened to have a couple of very rainy, windy days. Being New Englanders, we knew how to dress for this kind of cool weather so it was not a problem for us."
