        The SpaceThis old 3200 sq/ft farmhouse is a great space for entertaining guests. It features a large kitchen, as well as an Amish built farm table, which can extend to seat 14 people. Open the french doors and you can find more seating either on the deck or at the firepit. The house is setup like similar to a duplex. On the East side, there is a large master bedroom which gets sun and moon rises over the lake and mountains. Also on this side is a wet bar/kitchen, 3/4 bath with his and hers vanities. Travel up the other set of stairs and you enter the other part of the duplex with 3 bedrooms, and a full bath. There are further sleeping options down stairs in the office with a pull out couch (memory foam matress). Because the house is setup like a duplex, we have chosen to rent out the house in a couple ways. For groups of 1-8 you would have access to the main portion of the housing, including 3 upstairs bedrooms and the pull out couch in the office. For groups larger than 8, just let us know and we would be happy to go camping ;) Guest AccessGenerally everywhere with a couple exceptions if we are also in the house. Interaction with GuestsI have spent 5 years in the Champlain Islands and would love to plug guests into the many different pieces of island life and entertainment. The NeighborhoodGrand isle is a town located in the Champlain Islands. At it's heart you will find yourself surrounded by farmland, with artisans and farm stands around every bend. Our house backs right up to a dairy farm, which you look across to see the lake and mountain views. In the foreground you will sometimes see the Holstein cows, who can prove to be entertaining and sometimes smelly neighbors. From barn dances, to concerts, or an afternoon swim at the beach (a 10 min walk), there are always things to do in the Champlain Islands. The farm stand scavenger hunt is one of our favorites. Get your friends together, find a great recipe and spend the day biking around the islands collecting local goods for an evening feast on the deck. Getting AroundLocated in the heart of Grand Isle, most necessities are within walking distance. Need to pick up some wine? The vineyard is a great bike ride, about 15 miles down the shoreline. Need something more? Burlington is about 30 minutes away, and Montreal,about 1hr 15min. Other Things to NoteDespite the house being large with 5 beds, we are open to smaller groups as well, and can rent out just the apartment ( driftwood bed section). Also, we do have a cat, Miss Wigglesworth, who is an indoor/outdoor cat, and spends most of her time outside with the exception of the colder winter nights. If you make arrangements to rent the entire house, the cat will be your housekeeper and we ask that you pour her food and water every other day. She is allowed everywhere except the bedrooms.

ARTICLE FROM THE BOSTON GLOBE One downshifts upon arrival at the two-town island community of South Hero and Grand Isle on Lake Champlain. There are speed zones to observe, certainly, but also many bicyclists to respect, for this is a cycling Eden. But mostly you slow down psychologically, almost automatically. That’s because the island has all the soothing attributes of any seashore community but with one major difference: Instead of ocean expanse, one gazes across water at summits, the Green Mountains over which the sun rises, the Adirondacks over which it sets. There are winding country roads to explore; and farmers’ markets, orchards, produce kiosks (honor system), ice cream stands, art galleries, and even a winery that beckon you to stop. Grand Isle is full of speed bumps, all welcome. DINE For fine dining in a sporty atmosphere, try the Blue Paddle Bistro (316 US Route 2, South Hero, 802-372-4814, entrees $15 to $28, open for dinners Tuesday-Sunday, brunches Sundays on holiday weekends. For terrific hand-cut fries and other fried foods stop at Kim’s Snack Bar (corner of Routes 314 and 2, Grand Isle, no phone or website). Two spots for formal dining require a short drive across a drawbridge to another island, North Hero, to Shore Acres Inn & Restaurant (237 Shore Acres Drive, 802-372-8722, entrees $18.95-$37.95) and The North Hero House Inn & Restaurant (3643 Route 2, 802-372-4732, entrees $22-$27), both offering lakeside views. DURING THE DAY Bikers can enjoy the views along Grand Isle. While vacationing at the lakeshore it’s hard not to think occasionally of fish or other critters of the deep. For a sense of what’s below Champlain’s surface, stop by the visitor center at the Ed Weed Fish Culture Station, a state hatchery (14 Bell Hill Road, Grand Isle, 802-372-3171, open 8-4 daily, including holidays, for self-guided tours). Visitors can view Champlain’s most common fish species, feed fingerlings in their tanks, and stroll along the banks of a pond, occasionally catching a glimpse of osprey and other lakeshore birds. If art’s your thing, check out Grand Isle Art Works (259 Route 2, Grand Isle, 802-378-4591, open Monday-Saturday 10-4, but until 8 on Thursday, Sunday 9-3; café hours Tuesday-Saturday 10-3, dinners Thursday evenings), a gallery in a 1797 farmhouse featuring the works of some 75 Vermont painters and crafts people. For a dessert or to spoil your appetite, stop at Vermont Nut Free Chocolates (10 Island Circle, Grand Isle, 802-372-4654) for specialty chocolates made without nuts or peanuts, a special blessing for anyone with nut allergies. And for some history? Consider one of the oldest log cabins in North America, the Hyde Log Cabin, a state historic site (Route 2, Grand Isle, just north of the intersection with Hyde Road, open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 11-5). The small cabin, with furnishings, was built around 1783 by a Revolutionary War veteran, Jedediah Hyde, whose descendants lived in the structure over the course of 150 years. And, finally, all followers of the apple-a-day adage, should consider Hackett’s Orchard (86 South St., South Hero, 802-372-4848, www.hacketsorchard@myfair point.net) or Allenholm Farm (111 South St., South Hero, 802-372-5566, offering a “petting paddock” of farm animals for kids) Both orchards also sell varieties of berries, fruits and vegetables, plus ice cream, cider, maple syrup and other Vermont food specialties. Hackett’s Orchard in South Hero offers fresh produce. DURING THE NIGHT Face it, after a day at the beach or hours of bicycling, you may not be in the mood for a raucous nightlife — which is good because all options on the island are low key. One might visit to Snow Farm Vineyard (190 West Shore Road, South Hero, 802-372-9463) on an evening of tastings or musical performances. For frothy Vermont brews, and a chance to watch the Red Sox on the flat-screen, try McKee’s Island Pub & Pizza (513 Route 2, South Hero, 802-372-5454) McKee’s, offering subs, pasta, and salads, is also a good place to take the family for dinner. And if it’s really the simplest of pleasures you’re pursuing, you can stand in line at Seb’s Snack Bar (295 Route 2, South Hero, 802-372-6611), an island institution, for a close-up view of Americana and a “creemee,” ice cream cone, shake, or float.
