When buyers think of owning a year-round or seasonal waterfront residence, Vermont is not often the first place they look. But those who do soon discover a natural wonder and hidden gem in the heart of Vermont: Lake Champlain. The nation’s sixth largest fresh water lake, Lake Champlain stretches 120 miles from the Canadian border along the western shore of Vermont. With 54 beaches there are plenty of spots to swim, canoe, sail, jetski or just enjoy the views of the Adirondacks. This wonderful waterway is as varied and diverse as the homes that you will find scattered along its shores, which run the spectrum from seasonal, un-insulated cabins, or "camps" as they are called by the locals, to large year-round luxury homes complete with all the amenities you could imagine.
The quality of the lake shore and water also varies. Some waterfront lots have steep banks that drop to the Lake, requiring a staircase down to the beach. And “the beach” is often slabs of ledge or a pebble beach rather than fine sand. This wildly diverse lake offers everything from shallow, slow flowing marshland teaming with waterfowl to extremely well protected deep water mooring spots. All of these things are possible; you just have to know where to look. Let Chris’s 20 years’ experience selling waterfront properties from Grand Isle to Addison County and his familiarity with the Lake as a skilled sailor be your guide in finding the perfect Lakefront property for you!

In fact, the license to operate as a bed and breakfast is still current! With 140 feet of lake frontage across the road, a new dock system or mooring could easily be installed for the enjoyment of family or guests, and Hero's Welcome and the North Hero House are just a short walk away.
