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.

Some friends had their reception here. It was amazing. The place is gorgeous, great views, great service. Such an idyllic site for a party like that. Highly recommended if that is what you're looking for!

This is one of the most beautiful venues you can imagine for a wedding. Sadly, when I was here, it was raining but still we had a great time. I spent the night at the lakehouse and the next morning I was able to experience the beauty first hand. During breakfast I took my coffee outside and sat in the Adirondack chairs and let both the sun and coffee warm me as I looked over Lake Champlain and further off, the beautiful green mountains whose foliage was peaking.

This wonderful, nostalgic property has lived at least three lives. Once upon a time beginning with its construction in 1903 this was a grand old hotel, then a girls' summer camp, and now a lovely Vermont Inn where events such as weddings, corporate retreats, wine tastings, etc. are held. I spent many wonderful summers at this location when I was growing up, and each time I revisit it, it is a step back in time. I slept in this very same building for nine years as a child and teenager at summer camp. More recently I have been back for reunions. It is an utterly lovely spot on Lake Champlain in Grand Isle, about an hour's drive from Burlington. The Inn looks now much as it always has --- except the rooms have been wonderfully redone, each with a charmingly different decor. Do visit. It is a lovely spot where you can take a step back in time. And yes, it has one of the most amazing wrap-around porches in northern Vermont.

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.

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 about the heat in these rooms. People think of Vermont as being cold, but the summers anywhere near Lake Champlain are incredibly hot. Watch the forecast before booking a room here, and if you can, bring a couple of fans or sneak in your own window ac unit!! :-)

The perfect venue for a Wedding ! Russ took care of our families, and it couldn't have been more perfect!
Rooms have fans or heaters as needed, and even with the shared bathrooms, no one had to wait.
No Blowdryers are provided, so bring one if you need it. There are a few gas station/sandwich shops close by. A regular size fridge to share is on the second floor.
Great place for photos! The sunsets are amazing !
Keep an eye out for poison ivy down by the beachy area.
Mosquito repellant and Wifi is provided. It is a Historical Building, so doors will be loud and echo...
Butterfly's abundant as well!

I had my wedding here and could not have asked for a better location or people! Sue was amazing to work with while planning the months in advance. The food was absolutely amazing! They did everything there to make it the most special and easy day ever. It was an absolutely beautiful location and venue! My family stayed in the second floor and had a blast.
