Butler Island is a 600 acre island in the middle of Lake Champlain. It hosts about 70 cottages scattered around its 6 mile perimeter all filled with neighbors who are child & adult friendly. Be ready to really relax or play as hard as you want. You can be a hermit or a social butterfly. The water quality around Butler Island is some of the best in Lake Champlain. If water adventures, great fishing, fun water sports and laidback living are in your dreams then you owe it to yourself to at least check out all that Butler Island Living has to offer.
Enjoy the amenities with a 32' x 16' insulated & fully furnished main cabin. It also offers a 12' x 16' insulated bunk house. The back of the bunkhouse has a tool shed furnished with most any tool needed for island living. The property also has a two season 12' x 17' screened room. All three buildings will comfortably sleep 8 people. There is a 32' x 10' front deck over looking the lake and mountains. A 20' x 8' side deck connects the front deck, the main cabin and the screened room.
Butler Island is only accessed by boats in 3 seasons and by snowmobile, snow shoeing, skating and hiking once the lake freezes over.
The main cabin's lights, stove-oven, refrigerator and heater are powered by propane gas. A propane wall heater & wood stove in the main cottage plus a wood stove in the bunkhouse are used for cool nights and winter adventures. There is a large water storage tank over the outside shower providing lake water for washing & cleaning. This water supply is usually activated from May to October. In keeping with green island living there is a 100 watt solar system.
Besides the cottages the property includes a 48' aluminum dock, a 3,600 lb. aluminum boat hoist and a mooring. Many gas and hand tools plus water toys are also included. A detailed list of the entire inventory is available for your inspection.
You'll start each morning with a picturesque sunrise over the lake with Jay Peak, Mt. Mansfield and Camels Hump in the background. The full moon rise over the lake will make you stop and look for a long time. My wife of 47 years and I fell in love with that moon rise.
Butler Island is located in Lake Champlain between North Hero and the Town of St. Albans, Vermont. Feel free to call for more information about Butler Island Living. For serious buyers an island tour can be arranged for you, your family and maybe a friend.
