Grand Isle Lake House is a premiere lakefront property, set on a 55 acre promontory stretching southward into Lake Champlain with breathtaking views of the Green Mountains. The three story, 15,000 square foot main building was constructed ca. 1903 as the Island Villa Hotel. From 1957 to 1993, the property was owned and operated by the Sisters of Mercy as a retreat facility and girl’s summer camp. Jeff worked with the Sisters of Mercy, the Preservation Trust of Vermont (PTV) and a generous local family to structure a transaction that provided for the rehabilitation of the property and its long term stewardship. Now owned by an affiliate of PTV, the property is professionally managed as a seasonal event and lodging venue, and hosts a range of non-profit, corporate and private functions.
