Sleeping options include a queen-size bed in one room, a set of twin bunk beds in another, and a bunk bed (twin over full) with an additional twin bed in the third room. Dogs are welcome though an additional nightly pet fee will apply.

Some of the island's attractions include wine tasting at Snow Farm Vineyard & Winery (just three and a half miles away) to apple picking at Hackett's Orchard (two miles south), and fall foliage viewing September through November. There's also an abundance of woodlands in the area with great hiking trails and lakefront beaches.

About Vacasa, VT - Lake Champlain Islands Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Perfect lake getaway for our family

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our long weekend away - my four year old niece insists it is her "favorite hotel." We found the house to be perfectly appointed and didn't want for anything. The dock was an amazing place to have a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the water. The collection of vintage board games and puzzles kept the kids entertained. As a word of caution, there are a few spots that might be a bit treacherous for small kids or older people - I managed to stub my toes on literally every spot there was. Steps are varying heights and there are unexpected steps in some spots. Just be aware. My only complaint about the entire experience was that we had some prior guests show up without notice - they were weird and a bit rude and I would have appreciated some notice about their visit. I highly recommend Gone Fishing and have recommended it to friends and family already.

Perfect Lake Retreat for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

My four year old niece has decided this is her "favorite hotel." The dock was nice and relaxing. The views from the deck at sunset were unparalleled. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend away. I would highly recommend Gone Fishing (and have already). A word of caution, though, that the very young, the very old, and the spatially unaware (such as myself) should watch their steps. The house has a couple of spots where there are unexpected steps or where one step is taller than the ones around it. I managed to stub my toes on all of them. Just be cautious and enjoy your stay!

Vintage and funky, but very cozy

  • 4 of 5

We are a big family of 6 and there was definitely enough room. The house is very interesting. We liked the history and the location. It's a lake house and older, so it was a little musty. The lake water system took a little getting used to but overall we enjoyed our stay.

Very funky and cozy vintage space.

  • 4 of 5

This is an older house with a really neat history. The lake water system takes some getting used to, but it's easy to manage. If you have very small children, this could be a challenging location. It's clean and if you cook, there is basically anything you need.

Perfect Stay Especially as Wedding Guests

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there as guests to a wedding taking place at the nearby Grand Isle Lake House. Well worth our visit. The home was perfect for our family - the kids LOVED the bunk rooms - we loved the open plan. We also enjoyed seeing the few photographs on the wall of how the home was lovingly built by its owners, an engraved chair of where one of the owners' family was proposed to by another... added a certain magic to the house.
