Each Sunday afternoon in July and August,  musical performances and art exhibits are presented in the old Horse and Carriage barn with afternoon tea and delicious cakes and scones available. It's all free except for the refreshments whose proceeds support the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust.

Our two Knabe grand pianos and the acoustics of the wooden barn make for an unforgettable evening as concert goers experience gifted concert artists performing a variety of exciting and delightful works.

Nestled away in the south-west corner of Isle La Motte, Vermont, the northernmost island of Lake Champlain is a heritage site that was once the home of the prominent Fisk family, who on past occasions hosted receptions for noted politicians such as President McKinley and Vice President Theodore Roosevelt.

The once beautiful stone house, built in 1803, was ravaged by fire in 1923.  Today the stone ruins are used in the summer as a Tea Room.  The renovated  Horse and Carriage Barn with its two grand pianos, hosts concerts and art and craft shows.  These cultural heritage events are presented  by the Isle La Motte Preservation Trust (ILMPT), a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the area.
