About Owner Dave Hansen
My wife Anne and I have lived in Grand Isle, Vermont for Twenty five years. Now we are raising our three year old son MAX here. Anne takes the ferry to work across the lake in Plattsburgh, NY. When I am not looking after MAX, I work as a Cabinet Maker out of our home here in Grand Isle. We both love to sail and spend a lot of our free time racing sailboats.
Owner Dave Hansen purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Owner Dave Hansen chose Grand Isle
We found this property nine years ago. it is just down the street from where we first lived in Grand Isle. We had been looking for a property to invest in for years. when this one became available we jumped on it. We are so glad we did. It is a special place and I hope you will enjoy it.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are a few things that makes our cottage so wonderful. First, It sits only 30 feet from the lake so you feel like you are right there. There is a screened in porch where you can spend long evenings drinking wine and talking about your day or relaxing with a book. One of my favorite things to do is to sit on the lawn in an Adirondack Chair on a nice summer afternoon and watch the sailboats go by. The cottage is a quiet place. It sits 300 feet from a road that is not busy in the first place. If you want to venture out for the day or evening there are great choices. First, there are some great restaurants locally. Burlington is only 30 minutes away and if you have never been to Burlington you need to go. Burlington is a wonderful small city with fantastic restaurants, shops, music, and more. Montreal is a 90 minute drive north. just don't forget your passport. Grand Isle is a wonderful place to bike, paddle, fish, swim, or just hang out and relax with your favorite drink. I hope you come and enjoy our cottage.

A very cute setting on Lake Champlain with beautiful views of the Adirondacks across the lake. The fall foliage was magnificent
Comfortable and clean. It was equipped with everything we needed and the location was great. Perfect view on the lake of the mountains. Very relaxing weekend.
Sweet quiet retreat in a beautiful location
What we liked most was the screened porch to enjoy the sound and sight of the Lake with the Adirondak mountains in the background. Also central to exploring all of the islands.
The cottage is all two people need. Cosy
Great location, host and neighbors
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, the home is wonderful, beautiful sunsets!
