About Larry and Mary

We have lived in North Hero for over 30 years. Mary is a school teacher for the last 25 years and currently teaches in South Burlington VT. I'm an airline pilot flying the B-787 as a Captain in the international route structure of the Pacfic and Atlantic.

I'm also an avid Sea Plane pilot and own one.

When we vacation we usually rent homes that we find through Homeaway. This has allowed us to be on both sides of renting a vacation home for a week. We have tried to add and design what we would want into our vacation homes. Please check out our other property which is listed in the notes. #135449

We also enjoy meeting those we rent to and have made many new friends and look forward to making many more.

Larry and Mary purchased this house in 2015

Why Larry and Mary chose North Hero

This property is built to give an Adirondack/Post & Beam experience with multiple high decks.

All decks/porch have a waterfront view.

If your a bird watcher, there are Bald Eagles, Osprey, Red Tail Hawks, Loons & Blue Herons and many smaller birds that can be seen.

Kids enjoy catching frogs and following turtles.

What makes this house unique

Custom made beds with cedar post & large pine help accent the adrondack feeling. Addtionally a large custom made dinning table and a tiki bar. Live edge large pine boards are also used in the pantry, closets and kitchen.

Having a boat launch on site makes this property stand out for the boater.

Boat launch & protected part of the lake adds to the attractiveness of the property. Wildlife in many different forms completes this waterfront setting.

Large, comfy home in the beautiful Champlain islands

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 friends stayed here for a long weekend. The house is beautiful and obviously a well-cared-for rental. The pictures are all accurate, but don't really do the place justice. The main level (up one level from the ground floor entryway) is very spacious and light. Everything was in perfect working order, and the furniture was all comfortable. We liked the setup of beds that allowed each adult in our 6-person group to have her own bed. But, if you have a larger group, the house could certainly accommodate 10 easily, or a few more if some are little kids. Larry responded to my few questions quickly and helpfully, so the rental process was very smooth. Since we were flying into town, we added the linen package and that worked out fine. We didn't have a chance to use the dock or fire pit, but we definitely enjoyed the beautiful lake views. Our group usually goes to a new city every year, but we'd certainly come back here if circumstances bring us back to the Burlington area.

Stunning and serene

  • 5 of 5

The home is gorgeous! Also spacious, clean, and more than comfortable for 6-8 people. We spent a lot of time on the deck watching the lake, and on the dock relaxing. There's an expansive lawn area to play frisbee or fly a kite. Also a great spot for boating and Paddleboarding. Most of all, it's quiet - I think we heard only one siren all week. Larry and Mary are great! They were readily available with any questions, and stopped by to say a quick hello. Perfect place for a quiet getaway with family.

Ludlow, Ma. USA


  • 5 of 5

Well it was another great vacation. We have been staying at Larry and Mary's rentals since they began with the first house and now we are in the new one. They are both great places to stay but the new one is fantastic. From the beautiful woodworking throughout the house to the boat launch and dock. The pictures of course, do not do it justice. You have to appreciate the craftsmanship wherever you look. The deck is huge and my sons dog loved it. And...the gate made it easy to keep him in check. The fully applianced kitchen, the most comfortable beds, the wood and tile floors, and that master bedroom, bath and walk in closet....WOW! There is room for everyone and comfort galore. The dock is large enough for pretty much any size boat as long as the water co operates. And the fishing right from the dock or the shore is probably the best in the area. Larry and Mary are the best and make the stay at their rental feel like you are "home" You can tell that attention was paid to detail in every part of the house and that's what make this so special. We will be back again next year and have already started counting down the days. Thank you both for allowing us to enjoy your home. Dave, Lynn and Ryan and can't forget "Cooper" and Theresa and Bobby say "hi" And of course Ann and Donn ......Ludlow, Ma.

Just like the pictures beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The place and the lake were breathtaking! Everything was clean and the place was just as they represented. The owners welcomed us the second day we were there and they were very accommodating with any questions we had. We really have no complaints at all, we would go back without a second thought. Thank you Larry and Mary for sharing your beautiful home with my family!

Owner's Response: Eric, Happy to hear you had another great stay with us. The dock did work nice this year with the extra section and normal water level. Check out the new fish picture one of our renters gave us last week! Larry & Mary
