"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."

Fantastic location for our son's College Graduation event and family gathering!
"Our extended family and friends gathered here for our son's college graduation from UVM this past May. Though it was a bit of a drive, it was exactly what we wanted - We brought along my mother (in her 80's) and we found that this accommodation suited our situation perfectly! She was able to comfortably get around on the first floor inside the house and was able to enjoy the deck and rock the afternoons away watching the ducks, geese and loons fly by.
The owner Angela was excellent to work with and made the arrangements quite seamless. The house was exactly what we had expected and we were very pleased with our visit.
We would love to have the opportunity to visit again and highly recommend this accommodation."

"This place is spectacular in the summer and fall. The screened in porch became my go-to spot to relax, enjoy the peaceful view and drink my coffee in the morning. The girls weekend where we enjoyed glasses of wine while sitting by a crackling fire also turned into a lively discussion about how our husbands could enjoy a private boat launch for fishing and guy-time. We are looking forward to a winter trip in the future so we can snowshoe and cross-country ski while enjoying the fireplace in the evenings. Close enough to all the scenic sites in Vermont while being rural enough to really get away and relax."
