About the Lake Champlain Islands

Basking in the sun on the bow of the Grand Isle ferry or driving across one of the scenic causeways or bridges that connect us to the mainland. There are a few ways you can choose from to get here, each its own unforgettable introduction to the place we love to call home. Welcome to the Lake Champlain Islands Vermont.

Nestled in between Vermont's Green Mountains and the Adirondacks of New York, the Lake Champlain Islands sit amidst the breathtaking blue of the sixth largest freshwater lake in the United States. The Islands (as we like to call them) are 30 miles long and 8 miles wide, are comprised of five quaint towns, and offer all the fun and recreation you desire, as well as the solitude you crave.

See the apple blossoms in full bloom in the spring. Enjoy boating, biking, fishing, and more come summertime. Apple picking and leaf-peeping are some of fall's favorite Lake Champlain Island activities. Or visit in the winter for ice fishing and kite boarding at its best. There are historic sites to explore, lakeside accommodations to enjoy, and friendly locals to meet in every town. And with several of Vermont's best attractions just a short drive away, you can do it all...or do nothing. The pace is entirely up to you.

The Lake Champlain Islands VT are ready to welcome you season after season, so come experience why we love our home so much. As we mentioned, there are a few ways you can choose from to get here, and although the bridges, causeways, and ferry offer ways out of town too, we're pretty sure you won't want to leave.

Welcome to the Lake Champlain Islands. It's good to be here.
