About Larry and Mary
We have lived in North Hero for over 30 years. Mary is a school teacher for the last 25 years and currently teaches in South Burlington VT. I'm an airline pilot flying the B-787 as a Captain in the international route structure doing Pacfic and Atlantic flights. I'm also an avid Sea Plane pilot and own one. We do trips to out of the way waterfront overnights, restaurants and day trips. When we vacation we usually rent homes that we find through Homeaway. This has allowed us to be on both sides of renting a vacation home for a week. We have tried to add and design what we would want into our vacation homes. Please check out our other property which is listed in the notes. #4079165 We also enjoy meeting those we rent to and have made many new friends and look forward to making many more.
Larry and Mary purchased this House in 2006
Why Larry and Mary chose North Hero
The property has a unique peaceful setting with nature. This setting provides many opportunities to view many types of wildlife depending on the season and allows spectacular fishing from shore. If your a bird watcher, there are Bald Eagles, Osprey, Red Tail Hawks, Loons & Blue Herons and many smaller birds that can be seen. Kids can catch frogs and follow turtles!
What makes this House unique
The property has a boat launch on the property and is nicely protected from the wind for docking boats. Bass fishermen can be seen in their boats visiting some of the best bass fishing spots just off our shoreline. It is also at the end of a private road! A Fire Pit that overlooks the lake that you will not forget the experience. Please check our Fire Pit pictures.

We love Lake Champlain and our stay with Larry & Mary was fantastic! A great location for fishing, boating, long walks, biking or just sitting by the fire in the evening. The home is a beautiful and comfortable place for a getaway.. away from traffic with lots of privacy. The Duponts are very hospitable and accommodating. We will be back!
Great Lake Champlain Experiece
We enjoyed our stay at Larry and Mary’s house so much in 2012 that we returned last year. We take a fishing trip every year, but never before stayed at the same place twice.
The house is clean and roomy. The washer and dryer allow us to cut way down on the clothes we would normally pack. The country ramp in front of the house is perfect for launching the boat. The new dock Larry put in is much improved. I was able to keep boat in the water the entire trip and never worried about it getting banged up.
We particularly liked the location on the Alburg Passage. It’s a short run to all the hot spots like the Inland Sea, Gull Island and Horseshoe Shoal. It’s protected so we can still fish even when the rest of the lake is blowing up.
On land, all the amenities are nearby. The North Hero House is an excellent restaurant. A&B Beverage carries everything you need including fishing tackle. I understand there are hiking trails and golf nearby, but the fishing is so good, we were seldom off the water.
I highly recommend Larry and Mary’s house if you really want to enjoy Lake Champlain!
Best vacation rental out there!
My husband, our 3 children (ages: 3, 16 months, and 5 months), our dog, and I stayed here for a week at the end of August. We had the best stay! The weather was beautiful all week, with the exception of 1 very windy day. The house is beautiful and extremely clean (I'm very picky about cleanliness). The kitchen is stocked with everything that you could ever need to make a great meal! The view of the lake from the deck is great! Our boys really liked to watch the boats, jet skis, and sea planes taking off during the day. We enjoyed having fires and making Smores with our boys at night. There was plenty of wood on the premises. Our 3 year old really liked to skip rocks and watch all of the frogs down on the shore line, so much so that he's still talking about it a month later! Larry is very accomodating and easy to work with! The only complaint we had was that we had to come home!!! We had a terrific stay and can't wait to come back again!
Happy to hear you had a great stay with us!
Please consider joining us again!
Wonderful house for our two families.
This house was great for my husband and me with our son, daughter-in-law and their 2 little ones. The arrangement of the downstairs and upstairs bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms worked well, allowing my son's family a lot of space and privacy downstairs. The house is modern and lovely, with beautiful large windows and a big deck overlooking the lake. The kitchen is well equipped, although the space is small for storing groceries, but we figured it out. The dock area is spacious for boats. We loved the fire pit! The beach area is slate and the water is not deep. Our one concern was that this part of the lake is dense with invasive weeds (not the fault of the owners of this property - it's a problem in this northern reach of Champlain). For good fishing you may want a boat to take you to deeper water. We drove to a sandy beach recommended by the owners. It's clean, very family-friendly, shallow and gradual - great swimming for kids and adults (no weeds). We enjoyed that beach very much. Thank you Larry and Mary for a fun and comfortable stay in your lovely house!
Thank you for your review. Happy to hear that your family had a great stay with us.
Late in the season depending on the summer we do get some weeds. This year you happened to be at the peak time. Spring through the 1st of August is usually not a concern.
Fishing from shore during this time is usually great for kids and adults. This portion of Lake Champlain is some of the best bass fishing around.
Please consider joining us again. Enjoyed meeting and chatting with everyone!
Great Spot for our family to vacation together. Great location for boating and fishing.
We just returned from our family vacation on the shores of Lake Champlain. We had a wonderful week at Larry and Mary's lakefront rental homes. The homes were beautifully situated with private docks and each home had a row boat for use. The rooms in the home were clean and updated and the appliances worked well. Each house had a fire pit on the lake and wood was provided. Our ages ranged from 2 years to 75 years. We all enjoyed our stay. My grandson told me he loved the place. My other grandson brought a kyack and a paddle board and everyone enjoyed the challenge and time in the water. The fisherman in the group caught fish and we have pictures to prove this. We have been to Vermont many times however this rental is our favorite location. So glad we found these homes.
Thanks for the review. Happy to hear everyone had a great time. The area is usually well liked by the kids!!!
We are located at the very end of a private road. The house is on a 2.5 acre lot with over 600 ft of lake shore. Relax as you have an afternoon barbecue on the deck and watch the sun set as boats pass by. Enjoy a late evening moment by the lake shore as you roast marshmallows over the fire pit. Bring your bicycle and enjoy a trip around the Islands starting from your own backyard. In the Islands you will be able to enjoy activities including golfing, antiquing, bicycle touring, boating (rentals available) and fishing (many charters available). Area attractions include Saint Anne’s Shrine, Grand Isle Fish Hatchery, ECHO Center (aquarium), and the Teddy Bear Factory. In addition there are several state parks and public sandy beaches. Downtown Montreal is one hour and fifteen minutes from your doorstep. Stowe, VT is approximately an hour and a half drive.
