Getting Here and Getting Around

While there is very limited public transportation in this part of the state, we provide staff shopping trips, outings, and rides throughout the summer. We can also pick up and drop off staff at the Burlington Airport, bus station, or train station (about 35 minutes away). 

Personal vehicles are welcome and we have staff parking next to all the accommodations. Bikes, which we provide, can be used to get around the resort. 

For Fun

We're located about 3 miles south of the Quebec border on one of the largest lakes in the US. As a result, water activities like canoeing, kayaking, fishing, waterskiing/wakeboarding/wakesurfing, paddleboarding, and swimming are popular. You can also enjoy the surrounding dense forest, unspoiled lakeshore, and diverse wildlife.

About 30 minutes inland are the Green Mountains, which are popular destinations for hikers, mountain bikers, climbers, and all types of nature enthusiasts. The college town of Burlington, with its fantastic restaurants, bars, and shops is located just 35 minutes to the south. 

The diverse Canadian city of Montreal lies 45 minutes to the north. Many sporting events, concerts, and festivals take place there throughout the summer months.
