Know the length of your motor home and anything you are towing. We have been charged 4 different rates 2 of which are not accurate. Great and beautiful way to get across the lake but motor home users need to be aware.

No ferry from Burlington to Montreal, there is a scenic ferry from Burlington to Port Kent, NY, then you would get on interstate 87 and drive north about an hour to Montreal.
