Overview

Photos and Description of the Grand Isle vacation estate rental

4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms private island

This spectacular 207 acre private island estate offers incredible views, sunsets and sunrises, privacy and luxurious living in a green and eco sensitive manner. The main house is beautifully and comfortably furnished with hardwood floors throughout. The first floor open design features a large living room with two sets of French doors opening onto wrap-around porch/deck, wood stove and 2 story ceilings. Well-equipped kitchen (with spices and cooking basics available) overlooks the living room providing a relaxed entertaining and living atmosphere. Small dining nook off kitchen seats 5-6. Dining room has large table that seats 12 with French doors opening onto a screened in eating area seating 6-8. A den/4th bedroom, large slate-floored mudroom and bath/laundry room complete the first floor. Upstairs is a magnificent master bedroom with two small decks facing south and east, queen bed, walk-in closet and full bath. Two other bedrooms (one with deck) and a shared bath with shower are on the second floor. Comfortably sleeps 8 adults with pull out and floor mattresses for up to an additional 4 with upcharge. A spiral staircase leads to the third floor enclosed widow's walk and gorgeous sunset and 360 degree views of island and lake. This property is 'off the grid' with an extensive photovoltaic solar system that supplies power to the main house. A back-up generator helps during the cloudy days, but some accommodation for nature's proclivities is required. An island caretaker and working farmer in residence at the south end, is available to assist guests with navigating the solar system as well as providing trips ashore as needed. The system requires some user interaction. Panoramic views of water, mountains and pastoral fields are enjoyed from every room of the house. Extensive sandy beaches are just a 5 minute walk. Walking and running paths circle the island. Fly in to a 2500 foot runway with excellent approaches north and south.
