About Vermont

img

Vermont is the second smallest state in terms of population (it has 609,000 residents) and the sixth smallest in geographic area. Lake Champlain, the nation's sixth-largest freshwater body lies at the northwest border with New York State and Canada. The state is split east-west by the Green Mountains, which are popular for recreational activities. The eastern border with New Hampshire is defined by the Connecticut River. Vermont is the only landlocked state in New England which leads to its often being short-changed in guides to the region.

The state is extremely rural, its valleys littered with farms. Its largest city is Burlington, pop. 38,889. Among the state's major exports are cheese, maple syrup, marble, slate, and granite.

Tourism is also a very large industry in Vermont, as skiers travel from Boston, New York, Canada, and elsewhere to ski resorts up and down the Green Mountain spine during the winter. In summer, the many bed and breakfasts fill up with couples and families wanting to visit the state's small towns and wild areas. Vermont's autumn foliage is known for being the most spectacular in the country, and possibly the world. It occurs quite early -- usually mid-September to mid-October.

VERMONT ISLAND PROPERTY

Isle La Motte, Grand Isle County, Vermont


This exceptional property is located in Historic Isle La Motte, Vermont, the northern most Island in Lake Champlain. Samuel de Champlain landed on Isle La Motte in 1609 and a French fort was built in 1666, which is now the site of Saint Annes' Shrine which includes a large open air chapel. The Shrine is perported to have healing properties. Isle La Motte was named after the fort's builder, Pierre da la Motte and is the earliest white settlement in Vermont. As early as 1832 Island quarries began shipping black marble by barge. The U.S.Capital and National Gallery of Art both have the prized black marble used in them. The Revolutionary War Burying Point was located on this property prior to the headstones and remains being moved across the lake to Alburgh, Vermont when the causeway was constructed. Today Isle La Motte a has general store, 2 churches, Post Office, library, elementary school and an historical society. Other points of interest are the Goodsell Ridge Preserve, a National Historic Landmark where one of the oldest coral reefs exists and Fisk Farm and Quarry, which holds art exhibits and classical music events during the summer and fall. This private and pristine 100+-acre parcel has 1/2 Mile of private lakefront, and 1/2 Mile of Main road frontage. It is the first property you reach after crossing the causeway onto the Island and is directly across the Lake from the Alburgh Golf Links. The lakefront is a mix of marsh, with several small islands, wooded wet land comprised of mature maple trees and several points of lake access. Beavers, muskrat, mink, geese and numerous species of ducks inhabit the marsh. Although moose have crossed our property, none have spent any time there. Deer, grouse, turkeys and numerous small animals make their home on this land. This land is not only a nature lovers and conservationist sanctuary, but the numerous hay fields and open fenced pastures as well as the various out buildings and their potential make it ready for the gentleman farmer or equestrian.
