“Back In Time”

Grand Isle Lake House
Ranked #37 of 78 things to do in Burlington
Attraction details
Reviewed July 25, 2014

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.

A nostalgic turn of the century hotel carefully preserved for use as a wedding venue. FABULOUS food and service. Best wedding I've attended, hands down.

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.

This is the place to rock in your rocking chair, and soak in the history of Vermont. Beautifully restored hotel.
