Head to Saint Anne’s Shrine in Isle La Motte for a few moments of peace and quiet. No matter your faith (or lack thereof), this stunning beach shrine in Vermont is a gorgeous place to relax and reflect.
Located on the shores of Lake Champlain, Saint Anne’s Shrine is a Roman Catholic shrine that makes full use of its gorgeous surroundings. The shrine and its shape are both open-air.
The reflection area of the shrine is truly lovely. It features a large statue and several stone benches where you can pause and admire the shrine or simply take a breath and meditate.
