Summer on Lake Champlain

Happy 4th of July! We hope everyone had a wonderful day and beat the heat by enjoying some time on the lake. The Islands have been busy the last two days with boating, campers, and beach goers. On Tuesday, July 3rd, Knight Point State Park hosted the Fireworks Extravaganza with live music, food and swimming. There was a huge turn out and it was the best fireworks show yet! Boaters anchored near the drawbridge and got an amazing view of the fireworks. On Wednesday, July 4th, South Hero and Alburgh held their annual parades. It was beautiful day for a parade. It is wonderful to see the community come together and put on such great events.

If you live around Lake Champlain, you live for summer. We endure the cold Vermont winters waiting for the warmer months. After Memorial Day the Islands become a hub of activity with people returning to their summer homes, enjoying the lake either by boat or on the beach, snack bars and restaurants opening back up and summer music happening all over. Lake Champlain does not disappoint. There are many events happening all summer long such as the Champlain Islands Farmers Market, the Summer Concert Series at Snow Farm Vineyard, the Annual Duct Tape Regatta and more! At the end of a fun-filled summer day you are reminded of what makes this place so special to many. It is truly a unique corner of Vermont and we are grateful to call this place home!

Island Insights: CBIR Year in Review

Island Insights Guides Champlain Islands' landscape lake champlain sandbar

Happy New Year to our readers! As we begin a new year we are reflecting on 2020 and even though it was a difficult year with many changes we reached many milestones and are grateful to have had another successful year. 

After 26 years we moved into a new office, we rebranded, we launched a social mission to give back to our community, and we welcomed three new people to the CBIR team. The real estate market has kept us on our toes with shutdowns, stay at home orders, and embracing technology to offer virtual services. Despite these changes we have adapted and have continued to provide real estate services safely. 

We could not have reached these accomplishments without the support of our team, clients and community. We are grateful for all of your support. We look forward to the new year!
