An updated motel -clean and comfortable. Nicely renovated, screened in porches -mini kitchen of a microwave, frig and keurig coffee maker. Plush towels and newly painted rooms-we had a lovely quiet time reading on the lake and watching the sun go down.

Incredible place. Found the lodge on line late on a rainy night. Joanne booked us into the last room left so our expectations weren't very high. She took us to our room and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Beautifully decorated, spacious and clean. Joanne and Bruce were very pleasant and even helped us plan the next few days of...

The motto is "Where Fish Live" but the lodge doesn't stop there. Bruce and Joanne are a one stop shop and you don't have to stop for live bait or search for the perfect lure before you get there. They have a well equippped shop and bruce stays connected with some excellent guides to help make the right choices or... More

Our ice fishing experience was top notch!! We stayed for 2 nights and did a full day of ice fishing with a shanty. The fish were biting and it was nonstop action! We did not come with equipment so we got all of the supplies right there in the bait shop, they have everything you could need. The rooms were... More

My husband, father and I stayed here last year right after Christmas and had an awesome 3 days fishing out on the lake. This year we decided to take some more of the family up for a few days of fishing the weekend after Christmas. To my husband's disappointment, the ice was too thin to walk on, but that didn't...

We traveled to South Hero, VT for a half marathon and found this hotel as a place to stay that was out of the way. We discovered this hotel which sits on the shores of Lake Champlain in North Hero, about a half hour drive away. The hotel is run by a couple who are both very friendly. Once we... More

A simple, relatively small motel / lodge. Rooms facing the water are nice with knotty pine kitchens and bedrooms. Very friendly proprietors. If you looking for a quiet, country getaway with simple surroundings and furnishings this is it.

We discovered this little gem of a spot on northern Lake Champlain because we wanted a place on the water from which to launch our boat. Once there, we were charmed by the quaint accommodations and the relaxing pace of life on the lake. Bruce and Joanne, the owners, make you feel welcome. The place caters to fishermen, and there...

My two teenage children and I stumbled up the HHL while driving rt 2 on our last two days of vacation looking for the perfect place to stay. Although they did not have any vacancies for the evening, Bruce and his wife Joann were more than helpful with pointing out other places to stay. A water front cabin came available... More
