Words do little to describe the beauty of this lakefront Grand Isle mansion. Enjoy a grand interior, a private pool, a hot tub, a billiards table, and a postcard-perfect setting. This is the ideal spot for a large traveling family, or group retreat looking to stay in style.
Nestled on the banks of Grand Isle, right in the middle of Lake Champlain, you'll be six miles from North Hero. Set in the picturesque peace of Vermont's towering trees, you'll have everything you need for a fun-filled, relaxing stay.
As you step into this mansion built from Vermont Pink Marble, your attention will be drawn to the expansive layout, wood-beamed ceilings, and antique-style furnishings. You'll find plenty of places to lounge and chat in multiple sitting rooms of various configurations. Enjoy cable or a DVD movie on one of multiple TVs, tickle the ivories on one of the pianos, and get warm by the wood-burning fireplace in the TV room (please note that this is the only functional fireplace - all the other fireplaces are decorative).
Head down to the basement rec room for a game of pool on the billiards table while you listen to some music streaming over the WiFi, or do some work in the office. Take a swim in the private pool and float the day away as the trees sway in the breeze. After doing a few laps hit the rejuvenating hot tub in the enclosed sun room to ease your muscles and feel the stress from the daily grind melt away.
Take a fresh-squeezed glass of lemonade onto the patio and fire up the gas grill to whip up a dish from the fresh local produce from the farmers market. Pop open a bottle of crisp white wine and enjoy the secluded privacy as you dine al fresco, or mix up a sangria in the "secret" dry bar.
This home comes with not one, but two fully equipped kitchens! The main-floor kitchen (with a decorative antique stovetop) offers plenty of counter space, plus two functional stove top/oven combos so you can create a feast with ease. Upstairs on the third floor is another kitchen with all the major appliances. Enjoy your meal at the elegant table in the formal dining room, out in the breakfast nook at the farm-style table, or make it casual at the eat-in kitchen table on the main floor.
When it's finally time to turn in, this home will easily let up to 12 guests in seven bedrooms. Four bedrooms are upstairs: the master bedroom with a king-size bed and a private sitting area, a bedroom with a queen, and two bedrooms with two twin beds apiece. There are three bedrooms on the main floor with a queen, two twins, and a double bed. With four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, everyone will be able to spread out and enjoy some privacy.
You won't have to leave the property to experience the full effects of relaxation that come with this home. Stroll to the lake shore and enjoy your morning cup of coffee as the waves gently lap against the rocks. Paddle out with a kayak to explore the shoreline, or get out into the middle of the lake to fish for the big ones waiting below.
If you're looking for an opulent retreat that boasts amenities that will please every person in your party, treat yourself to a luxurious lakefront Vermont escape with everything you need for one-in-a-lifetime vacation.
