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.

Stopped at the St. Anne Shrine late in the day and caught a beautiful sunset over the Lake. On our return trip the next day the Shrine was open as was the gift shop and history room. The grounds are on either side of the West Shore Road so watch for traffic when crossing. During pilgrimage season the Shrine is... More

Located by the Samuel de Champlain statue, this religious and very serene scenic spot is a must see. Gift shop and outdoor services held. Parking and beautiful drive thru the Champlain Islands to Isle LaMotte.

I am not able to really review the shrine, but the accommodations for a day trip bicycle rider are very good. I would like to go back and enjoy the spiritual aspect of the Shrine soon.

The shrine itself is sort of matter of fact. The location with its view of the lake is nice, Nice small beach to walk. For me the sense of history is special The statue of Samuel Champlain ties the site to colonial times, the French and Indian Wars and the war of 1812.
