‘Here a scene of indescribable sublimity burst upon us. Before us lay the waters of Lake Champlain, a sheet of unruffled glass, stretching some ninety miles to the south, widening and straitening as rocks and cliffs projected in the most fantastic shapes into the channel. On each side is a thick and uninhabited wilderness, now rising up into mountains, now falling into glens, while a noble background is presented toward the east by the Green Mountains, whose summits appear even to pierce the clouds. On the west mountains still more gigantic in loftiness, pride and dignity. I cannot by any powers of language do justice to such a scene.’
– R.G. Gleig, a member of Gen. Fraser’s staff, Burgoyne Campaign, June 1777
The beauties of Lake Champlain have been praised for centuries. We are lucky to represent three private islands on this natural, freshwater lake.
Situated just off the mainland of Lake Champlain, and connected with an engineered causeway, this impeccably-landscaped, 2.5-acre island has elevated and distinct 180-degree views of the Green Mountains. The lakeshore measures approximately 1,680 feet, and includes a beautiful stone beach with docks. The grounds are decorated with awns, old growth trees, and gardens to stroll in. The contemporary house feels like an Adirondack lodge inside with reclaimed wood, a new kitchen, a private, second-level master bedroom, and a view deck facing the lake.
This 8.4-acre private island retreat features 360 degree views, expansive lawns for children’s games, and shale beaches for sunbathing and swimming. Its Main House sleeps 10, its antique Guest Cottage sleeps 4, and its Beach House offers plenty of storage. The property is an easy 7-minute boat ride from the South Hero causeway, and 20 minutes to downtown Burlington. Cedar Island is serene and tranquil with walking trails, a tennis court, a workshop, a small getaway north cottage, sunsets, and sunrises! Boats, tractors & other machinery are negotiable. Rented dock space at the Marina is available for the summer.
This is a once in a life time opportunity to own a completely private 10 acre island on Lake Champlain just minutes from the mainland. Fish Bladder Island features gently rolling terrain, a beach, and protected coves for dockage. It is located in the town of South Hero, a short ten minute boat ride from the shore. The island’s newly constructed residence includes boat storage area on the lower level and another 2-bedroom guest house. Electric is provided by a state of the art battery back-up system and two propane powered generators. The island also has its own fresh water intake system and septic. It is fully equipped with ancillary equipment including a tractor and other service vehicles.
