About the Property

Gorgeous Lake Front Retreat Property, Private Apartments

This beautiful property has been carefully crafted into a peaceful retreat center primarily used for health, wellness and healing retreats, educational events, and meetings. During the summer and fall season, we offer use of two apartments located in the carriage house building. The property is an extraordinary place to get away, relax, and rejuvenate. If you are seeking a quiet place to bike ride, kayak, canoe, or spend time on the lake this is an ideal location. The property is a budding permaculture ecosystem, with gardens, fruit and nut trees, and farm animals all contributing to an organic, self-sustaining system. We are an hour away from three cities (Montreal, Burlington VT, Plattsburgh NY), yet far enough out for relaxation. Our island region is known for biking, great small restaurants, local arts, and organic farmer's markets. Fall is exquisite in brilliant colors of red, orange, yellow hues. Come leaf peeping! Winter fun includes cross country and down hill skiing, snow shoeing, and even ice fishing!

Maya is located on 3.0 acres of farm land with exclusive lake shore frontage, this retreat property has everything you need for a pampered, relaxing vacation, event, or holiday. If you are interested in massage, healing therapies, or catered organic meals please inquire up to 4 weeks prior to your stay.

The carriage house apartment citrine suite features two bedrooms (1 BR: queen size bed), ( 1 BR:single bed), and a living area with full size futon. Simple and fully operational kitchen, and 1 bathroom with sunken bath tub/ shower. The emerald suite features one bedroom (queen size) , simple kitchen, living area and one bathroom (shower only). Each apartment has access to a private small outdoor deck, and use of common space on the grounds including enclosed sun porch, outdoor grill, fireplace, and oven.

Enjoy your breakfast on the private outdoor patio with bistro tables while listening to the fountain and watching the lake, or lounge on the beach, dock, or deck overlooking the lake. An outdoor Italian pizza oven, outdoor fireplace and grill is available for making authentic wood fired pizza! Perfect for entertaining. Lake is located in front of the property, and is accessed across the street and down the steps to the private deck, dock and beach.

You are encouraged to pick from the veggie gardens and enjoy. However, please do not allow children to interact with the animals without adult supervision.

Isle La Motte is one of nature's most scenic getaways! The island is surrounded by beautiful vistas including the Adirondack mountains. The island is known for having the oldest known reef on the continent- now visible in the local preserve. The island boasts summer art and music festivals, fine dining, and lake shore activities. Close to Montreal, Quebec Canada, or Burlington Vt.

There are two large buildings on the property: the main house and the carriage house. The main house building located in front of the carriage house may be in use for a weekend retreat, owner also on premises.

Your privacy is respected & maintained and owner can be available if needed. Guests are encouraged to interact with the animals. Tour of alpacas, goats, and chickens available upon request.
