Reviewed September 6, 2013

Located by the Samuel de Champlain statue, this religious and very serene scenic spot is a must see. Gift shop and outdoor services held. Parking and beautiful drive thru the Champlain Islands to Isle LaMotte.

“bicycle friendly”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

I am not able to really review the shrine, but the accommodations for a day trip bicycle rider are very good. I would like to go back and enjoy the spiritual aspect of the Shrine soon.

“A piece of history”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The shrine itself is sort of matter of fact. The location with its view of the lake is nice, Nice small beach to walk. For me the sense of history is special The statue of Samuel Champlain ties the site to colonial times, the French and Indian Wars and the war of 1812.

“reflective location”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

St. Anne's Shrine sits on the beautiful Lake Champlain. It is a quiet, peaceful experience with a main chapel and smaller chapel that are covered, several other areas where one can sit and reflect as well as stations of the cross-if your are into that. Bonus is the history of Samuel de Champlain who was the French explorer that named the Lake in 1609. There is also a cafe and gift shop at the location.
