Lake Champlain Views!

Right on Lake Champlain. Short walk from pedestrian zone in Burlington. Great views. Right next to the ECHO center and Waterfront Park.

the lake is really beautiful when the sun comes down. I had cuisine on the boat to watch the sun came down and it was a impressive trip.

Always love it. Took off in a small boat for NY state this July. Small marina, but accessible. Dining and drinking available. Frankly Burlington deserves a larger, more upscale water front, but it wasn't meant to be so I accept this alternative. Lake Champlain is inspiring and Burlington is special.

The Boathouse is run by an excellent staff of the Parks and REc Dept. Local and trasient boats can moor and visit the city of Burlington or hang out at Splash,a seasonal, upscale restaurant within the Boathouse.

I had my rehersal dinner at the boat house in 1992 and am now looking at this as a possible place to renew vows for our 25th! It is such a beautiful spot. Sunset are a dream. Great photo spot.

While visiting my daughter in Burlington, we went on several walks along beautiful Lake Champlain. The boathouse dock was often the start point. Several times, we got "Creamee's (we call them soft serve ice cream). Maple is the popular flavor and it was delicious.

We were here in the evening. The dance lessons going on upstairs, the boaters coming in for the evening to tie up, or people like us who just wanted to sit and watch the world go by. It was a hot evening, and a great place to find the breeze to cool off and people watch.

Undoubtedly the primo location for on-the-water in Burlington. We did not eat at Splash because they really don't have much to offer that appeals to us but we did walk though and enjoy the view. It is a wonderful location in the center of all that Burlington has to offer.
