About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 12 (8 adults)

This delightful lakefront home on the southernmost island of Lake Champlain has a private dock and stunning lake views for up to 12 (eight adults maximum, please) guests to feel right at home!

Sitting in a remote location on a sparsely-populated island, you'll find peace and serenity among forests and over 200 miles of coastline. Still, all the essentials can be found a short distance away in the small town of South Hero.

The home itself is cozy with a bright and rustic design. In the main room, you'll find comfy furniture, a wood-burning fireplace, board games, and a flatscreen TV with a DVD player (cable and WiFi included). A sunny dining table will fit six for a meal by the window, and a piano nearby is ready to be played by the musician in your group. Heat in this home is supplied by a convection stove in the basement and a wood stove on the main level.

An open, fully equipped kitchen provides plenty of counter space and all you need to make your favorite dishes, plus a dishwasher for easy clean-up.

Outside, you'll enjoy a pleasant deck overlooking the lake with patio furniture and a firepit at the corner. Lounge chairs are prime for watching a sunset with your feet in the luscious lawn, and there's plenty of space for lawn games if you plan ahead. A flight of metal stairs leads down to the private dock for swimming and fishing.

With four bedrooms and two full baths, this home will accommodate up to 12 guests (eight adults maximum, please). Two rooms with lake views will each sleep a small family - one with a wide twin-size canopy bed and a twin-size trundle, and the other with a queen bed and two twins (one is a trundle). The third room features two full-size futons, and the fourth has a double bed. There's a full bath on each floor, and all linens are provided.

A private washer/dryer allows for freshening laundry and packing light.

This is the perfect getaway for a large family or a couple smaller ones traveling together - enjoy the tranquility of this private home with your lake access, or head to nearby White's Beach for a friendly game of beach volleyball. You might pay a visit to Snow Farm Winery to taste their delicious wines or travel to Castles Island for a unique sight of miniature castles.

Your next Lake Champlain vacation will be the best one yet - book today!

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!

Great Multiple Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We went on a family vacation with our daughter and three other families. This house was great! The bedrooms upstairs were all big enough for parents and kids to share, the first floor bedroom was a little tight for that but we managed. The kitchen was big enough to handle meals for our large group and there were two big tables. The living area is a lot bigger than it looks and was fine for all the grown ups and kids. The deck was GREAT! And the stairs down to the dock were not nearly as steep as they look in the pics - definitely OK for kids to navigate. We had a BLAST and the sunsets were AMAZING!!!!

Great outside not inside

  • 1 of 5

Outside of this place is great, nice porch/steps out back door, the deck is nice and the dock/deck as well, this area is a little dangerous for small children, keep an eye on them. My kids and grand kids had a great time outside using these areas & the side lawn. Inside of the house is run down, the pictures are a little deceiving, 2nd floor and basement access are a small spiral stair case not fun, the basement where the washer is, a wreck and not clean, the kitchen is useable but items in the cabinets an unorganized mess, the fridge kept freezing food, no AC, 1st floor bed-hot, bathrooms need reno, nice TV system.?

Lights Out!

  • 3 of 5

Property was beautiful (inside and out) and well maintained.

The listing bills itself as a secluded getaway on a remote corner of the island, however, it fails to mention that it is closely sandwiched by two residential properties and that the neighbors strictly enforce a no noise after 9pm/lights out by 10pm policy - either by calling the police or complaining to the property manager.

If the property owners/managers only want to rent to people on family vacations with children - they should say so. I'm sure both the angry neighbors and the people who like to sit on the back patio enjoying the fire and a few beers after 9pm would greatly appreciate the upfront honesty about what they're signing up for.

Excellent for family trip

  • 4 of 5

We loved the property and location. Only complaint is the mattresses on futons in 4th bedroom were uncomfortable for adults. Otherwise, this place was heaven and we'd love to go back.
