A nostalgic turn of the century hotel carefully preserved for use as a wedding venue. FABULOUS food and service. Best wedding I've attended, hands down.

Historical and lovely. Went to a wedding here: everything was perfect: food top notch (I'm an ex-chef) the staff worked like crazy, but invisibly so the day just flowed. A wonderful place.

Gorgeous mountain views on the lake. GILH offers a memorable event with really relaxing atmosphere. It feels like visiting family. I think it was pricey for what we were wanting. Ultimately, my daughter chose Basin Harbor for her wedding with so many people traveling from out of state and country.

The biggest challenge was the lack of air conditioning, on some 90 degree days. We had a hard time sleeping, even with every window open and fans going. Very convenient to have our... More

Gosh I wish this place had air conditioning. I would go back in a heartbeat. But, with no AC and with Vermont summers usually in the high 80's to mid 90's, this was a very uncomfortable night. Room was spotless, the shared baths were always available, and the managers were very nice. I just think people need to be warned... More

This is a nice place, but you won't find it in Burlington. It is in Grand Isle!

Every American needs to visit this place sometime. Incredible charm. The Grand Isle Lake House is an historic location where our daughter was married.
