One batch of lighthouses are located along the banks and shoreline of Lake Champlain. Burlington Breakwater Lights is the lighthouse located in Burlington, Vermont. The other lighthouses servicing the lake include Isle La Motte Lighthouse, Juniper Island Lighthouse, and Windmill Point Lighthouse. One additional lighthouse services Lake Champlain and is called Colchester Reef Lighthouse, although the lighthouse has been physically relocated and now resides at the Shelburne Museum as a visitors and tourist attraction and is thus no longer in active use.

In the northern section of Vermont, in Newport, lies Lake Memphremagog which is home to three lighthouses. Maxfield Point Lighthouse, Whipple Point Lighthouse and Newport Wharf Lighthouse all reside in the immediate vicinity surrounding the lake. The lighthouses are all operational and visitors can tour the structures by planning in advance for tour; as constraints do exist based on the fact the lighthouses are still in use.

Travelers and sightseers seeking a tour of Vermont should include a lighthouse tour as part of their itinerary. These structures are magnificent to witness up close and personal; and the history associated with each one can almost be felt in the area and air surrounding each one. Lighthouses remind others of how life once was on the water, and in the days before technology they made boating safer. Knowing the glowing beacon of a lighthouse was the only way sailors knew they had arrived back home adds an element of drama and history to each and every lighthouse.
