Lake Champlain has long been considered one of Vermont's greatest treasures. Reminiscent of another era, the Grand Isle Lake House is a jewel in her crown, offering an unparalleled lakeshore setting for weddings, corporate events, and social functions in an historic venue.

The building and grounds are ideal for a spectacular Vermont wedding or special occasion. The grounds easily accommodate large tents for 250 people, while the East and South porches are most frequently used for dinner seating of groups of 150 or less. The former Island Villa dining room with it's beautiful vaulted ceiling and original woodwork is now used for cake, coffee and dancing. This gracious building is also the perfect spot for family reunions, rehearsal dinners and birthday celebrations

The quiet solitude of the Lake House can provide the focus your business or organization needs, while the spectacular views and grounds can inspire and reenergize. The property, reminiscent of another era, offers a break from the hectic pace so many of us live with every day. Exploring the land and Lake Champlain shoreline gives participants the experience of a true retreat.


This property and building, which now comprise the Grand Isle Lake House, were donated as a generous gift to the Preservation Trust of Vermont in 1997. After assessing the viability of converting the existing facility, the decision to create a meeting and event facility was made. In an effort to best serve the mission of the Trust, the building was restored to its original splendor, with the help of many benefactors, and is currently used for both private and non-profit functions. In doing so, the Preservation Trust has preserved one of Vermont and Lake Champlain's waterfront treasures, while generating income to support other Vermont communities and organizations in their preservation efforts. In choosing the Grand Isle Lake House for your special event you will also be making a contribution to the historic preservation of this and many other Vermont treasures.
