About the Property

Lake Front Renovated Farm House (sleeps up to 20)

This beautiful property has been carefully crafted into a peaceful retreat center primarily used for retreats, family events, board meetings. It is an extraordinary place to get away and rejuvenate. If you are seeking a perfect place for your workshops, healing events, business meetings; or fun with family and friends for the summer, this is it! We are an hour away from three big cities, 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.

The main house features two large living areas, 4 bedrooms [2BR-queen, 1BR -queen with connecting bedroom of 4 single beds; 1 full futon] 3 baths, gorgeous newly remodeled kitchen, two private wrap around porches, an enclosed sun room, portico, meditation pagoda, courtyard, fountain, sacred stone structures, side lawn and gardens for enjoyment. Every room has been updated and remodeled, all are furnished with fine quality -yet comfortable pieces. This property offers exquisite rest, relaxation, and full rejuvenation; along with lakeside fun (summer and winter)!

The second building is the Carriage House, which can sleep up to 10 guests. It contains two full apartments, two kitchens, two baths, and three bedrooms (queen, two full, singles, and futon). Additional rate for carriage house lease.

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 home, and is accessed across the street and down the steps to the private deck, dock and beach.

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.
