A gorgeous, historical site. Even if you're not interested in the religious or historical aspect of the place, the natural beauty is worth the stop if you're already in the area.

Stopped here on my way to the Old Schoolhouse B & B. Very well maintained. Definitely a religious stop for mediation and reflection. Beautiful views of Lake Champlain.

Samuel de Champlain visited here in 1609 while exploring the unfamiliar lake. The shrine area is a quiet place to reflect. A statue that once graced the steeple of the RC Cathedral in Burlington was recovered, restored and resides here.

The shrine is lovely, but for us the attraction was to watch the sunset on this beach. There is parking or you can ride your bike.

It's beautiful. A must stop / must visit while in the Champlain Islands. The grounds are beautiful. The history is rich. The outdoor church service is renewing. Great public beach is a bonus.
