Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 4

The carriage barn is a unique rental as it has a mixture of modern and vintage charm. There is a large living room with a game table area at the side. The dining room will seat 6-8 people. There is also a window seat there to look over the vast lawns and gardens. The galley kitchen has all modern appliances. A breakfast bar allows for quick meals or a bar set-up for evenings. The bathroom has a vintage soaking tub or a shower for those that don't want to relax. There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds. The balcony overlooks the lake and is a great place to watch the great sunsets that happen most nights. On the beach, there is a large area to play in the sand or to lay in the sun. A dock is there to sit on or to tie up a boat or kayak. There is also a deck to sit and enjoy the beauty of the lake and the passing of the many boats that use this lake.

The Carriage Barn is set in an area that is just made to vacation in. There are so many things that you can do when you have a beautiful lake. Our grounds and gardens including flowers and berries are well cared for so that you can just sit and enjoy life. The only thing that you have to leave for is to shop for groceries! The drive back will make up for your time away.

Our Carriage Barn is a year round rental so it is a nice winter getaway whether you want to go ice fishing or skiing or skating. The lake is a great place to look at in the winter and read a book or do some handwork -- just a great escape from the real world! Or, spend the holidays here -- Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Valentine's Day just to name a few. Our Carriage Barn is the perfect place to do practically anything or nothing at all.

Isle LaMotte is truly an island with a post office and a store that makes up the center of town with 2 churches and several little places to eat ice cream or a local cafe for breakfast and lunch. There is one restaurant on the island. However, there is lots to see and do if you like to be outside such as the reef or there is St. Anne's Shrine. Or you can use the Alburgh Country Club for some golfing. There is always walking, swimming and bicycling! The lake is a fun place to kayak or canoe as there are always thinks to look at or birds to watch such as the Blue Heron an Osprey or even an Eagle if you are among the lucky people to see one.

Shopping is something that you must leave the island to do unless you use the farmer's markets which have quite a variety of items. Plattsburgh, NY or Burlington, VT have big malls and lots of choices either outlet shopping or just the regular shopping.

Beautiful home in great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying in the Carriage Barn. The house was perfect-right on the lake and extremely clean. It had everything we needed for a weekend getaway at the lake. All we had to do was relax.

I wish all rentals were like this one

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully developed and maintained; spacious and well laid outa and furnished. Was like being at home, in terms of having everything we could want for kitchenware, housewares, etc. Overlooking the lake across the street, it also has a small deck right on the water where we sat and watched the sunsets. Owners live adjacent and maintain exquisite gardens throughout the spacious property. A real gem.

Fraudulent posting and uncaring owner! Beware!

  • 1 of 5

After driving for 4+ hours, we arrived to find the posting was fraudulent. The original posting (which they changed after we filed a complaint!) listed air conditioning and lake/waterfront. When we arrive (hot, mid-August) we were told the AC had been removed. Needless to say on the second story of a barn, with hot metal roofing, the apartment was sweltering (even with all fans blowing) and we were so exhausted after the second night of no sleep we had to leave.

Also, according to the listing and pictures, this apartment is lake/waterfront. It's NOT. You are looking at the back of their house (and their central AC). The waterfront is hundreds of feet away, across the street. Don't be fooled by the photos.

Even more insulting was the fact that we were told, "Too bad, you should have left." When we asked for a refund.

On another, positive note, Homeaway customer support was great. They helped us out a lot. We have filed a complaint and they are monitoring this posting. Homeaway gets 5 stars. The property owner on the other hand should be ashamed for lying to people who spend their hard earned cash to get away only to be lied to.

Owner's Response: Our Carriage Barn was insulated with spray on foam when it was built as this is the best insulation. We have since added solar shades to keep the heat of the sun out. There are ceiling fans in every room. Combined with the breezes from the lake, we had never had any complaints of "sweltering" heat in over 10 years of business.

This property is amazing. Claire and Michael could not be any nicer and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We had beautiful bike rides along the lake, boating was phenomenal and the use of their dock was so convenient (boat launch only a mile down the road) and each night we grilled out and then watched the most gorgeous sunsets from their lakeside deck. We will definitely be back.
