There’s lots to do, like hike, golf, camp and take boat cruises, but the beauty is, how easy it is to not do anything. « less

A spring-fed, deepwater lake surrounded by cedar trees. It's pristine and feels ancient. You wake up in the morning and take in a deep breathe of fresh air. Once you start going regularly, you crave it. I've been to lakes all over Europe and the US. This by far is the nicest, and I keep going back. South Hero, VT.

I can't believe there are no reviews for this company. We rented a houseboat from these guys and had an amazing experience. We are complete novices and after our orientation with Chip felt completely at ease. The beauty of the lake, the fun of learning to read charts and navigate, it was an amazing adventure and very unique get away.... More

Beautiful serene lake. Take a sightseeing cruise or rent a boat to enjoy it more, or just sit on the many docks to take in the gorgeous views. Many locations are available to kick back.

Visited in the winter with my family. It was my first time driving on a frozen lake. You can't even really tell you're on a lake because it's covered in snow. But once you shovel the snow you can see the ice. A couple guys were ice fishing and they were nice enough to teach us how to make a... More

We spent a weekend with friends on their boat on Lake Champlain. It was paradise. So many coves to explore and anchor in, clear warm water for swimming, beautiful scenery and stunning sunsets. I have never in my life seen so many sailors and boats out enjoying the water. People who live on the lake, or have a boat on... More

Since the early days of exploration by Samuel deChamplain, reports of the alleged lake monster have persisted, some reported by native indians. There have been numerous sightings, nearly all by reportedly sober people! Several group sightings were experienced on the lake's ferries. True...the lake does have sturgeon which can grow to considerable size, but they cannot account for the reported... More

Living on the shores of Lake Michigan, which has always been the most beautiful great lake to me, I was amazed and awed by the beauty of Lake Champlain. We were there the 3rd week and September and while the color was just starting to show it was still a beautiful sight. We took the Lake cruise on the Northern... More

Lake Champlain is majestic. From so many different angles the sun rise the in between and the sun sets are gorgeous. The board walk is expansive and has swings to sit on and just relax and watch the scenery. If you prefer you can set on the grass and have a picnic which is equally as great as sitting on... More
