Quiet hour of contemplation in nature

Beautiful view! I didn't visit anything more than the statue itself. Hung out with St. Anne on a beautiful sunny day. The beach is just below.

This is the site of the "discovery" of Lake Champlain by Samuel D Champlain. It is also a major religious site as the first mass was said here in the 1600's. The French also maintained a fort here and the stones from the ruins have been used in one of the religious areas. The Shrine has cabins that are used... More

A must visit historic/religious site on Lake Champlain. The grounds are breath taking; the church (Roman Catholic) services are wonderful due to music and liturgy; outdoor Stations of the Cross. Snack bar and gift shop are available in season. Special events take place in season, one should check the schedule of events online.

This shrine has alot of history. As it was settled by the first white people in the 1600's right on Lake Champlain. There are some nice grounds to walk around along with a cafe and gift shop. They still give mass there on certain days and hold weddings etc.

Beautiful place to visit. A must to add to your list on sight seeing. I went twice; once in winter and once in summer. Very pleasant place.

We visited before the official opening of season. It was a beautiful spring day, so tranquil. The prayer garden with the 12 stations of the cross was a time for reflection.

I wasn't impressed by St. Anne's Shrine. It's basically a statue and a pavilion near the lake. There's much more exciting things to do on the islands, you're not missing much if you decide to skip this one.

This is a perfect drive from Burlington, less than an hour. The shrine is right on the water which makes it a great destination for picnicking, sunbathing in modest attire, and camping - all of which are available at the shrine. There is also a small cafeteria with limited hours - be sure to check the website before planning on... More

I didn't know what to expect after picking up a travel brochure at our inn. As others have mentioned in their review, the Shrine has beautiful grounds and I was surprised at the historical aspect which I also really enjoyed. In addition, the stations of the cross and the crucifix meant the most to my husband and I - all... More

Stopped here while we were touring the Champlain Islands. Nice place to relax and meditate. Right on the lake. Plenty of parking as well as shrines and chapels to pray at. History was interesting and grounds are very nice for walking, sitting, and relaxing. A nice place for some peace and quiet.
