Property description

Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, the house is a large, beautifully decorated historic home. There are three acres of expansive lawns with flower gardens and an organic vegetable patch. The 600 feet of private shoreline adjoin the Missiquoi National Wildlife Refuge and the deck and dock are great places to watch herons, near-by nesting osprey and the occasional bald eagle.
Nearly every room provides lovely views of the lake and the Green Mountain range. The kitchen has granite countertops, a four oven AGA cooker, and there is a teak table that seats 10. There is an additional pantry kitchen with an electric oven, and a second large refrigerator.
The 60 foot long screened-in porch has wicker furniture, a hammock, and a dining table.
There are two living rooms, one with a wood burning fireplace, plenty of books and board games. The second is even larger and has a gas fireplace, baby grand piano, and french doors leading to an open deck.

The south lawn is very flat and provides a perfect setting for tented events or a game of soccer.
An experienced catering staff is available if you would like meals provided.
