About Beth Tolmie

Property is our home that we want to share and make available for others to enjoy as we travel to be with family and friends. We are native and long-term Vermonters who enjoy all that Vermont and the Lake Champlain Islands regions have to offer.

Why Beth Tolmie chose Lake Champlain

Our home is uniquely situated on the shores of Lake Champlain to afford direct views of Mt. Mansfield. Meticulously maintained flower and shrub beds make for a beautifully landscaped oasis in which to relax and unwind. A small apple orchard welcomes you down the driveway with ample parking for several guests. Enjoy lake views from the screen porch. Bring your boat to moor and get out on the lake. Paddle to nearby Cedar or Savage Island. Throw a fishing line from the dock. Sit peacefully on the lakeside contemplation bench with your favorite cocktail.

What makes this house unique

Air conditioned, quiet and privately located direct access to Lake Champlain. Views of the lake and Green Mountains are unsurpassed! Come revel in the beauty of the Lake Champlain Islands. Take a jog bike ride or simply relax on the shores of the lake.

our combined family of 7 had a great time at this home. the location is super, right on lake champlain. easy driving to burlington and montreal. the home is very comfortable and well suited for families with multiple large bedrooms and bathrooms. the screened porch was a favorite place for morning coffee. the deck and hot tub were bonuses. kayaks were very much appreciated and we all enjoyed using them; the backyard shed also had additional outdoor/water equipment that we used. the kids enjoyed fishing off the dock and caught a lot of panfish. they also liked swimming right off the shore. the grownups liked sitting by the water in the evenings. very peaceful but also with plenty to do in the area or right on the property. home is very well kept, hosts are very responsive.
