Lake Champlain vistas can enhance your waterfront dining experience
If you don’t think of Vermont as a place for waterfront pleasures, you might be forgetting magnificent Lake Champlain, a natural resource and highway of history. Near this lake – or at the many smaller lakes and rivers that refresh the state – you can enjoy fine and casual dining
along with sunset or sunrise over the water. Menus offer fresh, local ingredients
and seasonal cuisine with contemporary American and Continental dishes from land and sea. The waterfront settings make it all more delicious and memorable. Stay nearby at a glorious lakeside resort
