CHARMING YEAR-ROUND 2 BR COTTAGE ON LAKE CHAMPLAIN - BLUEBERRY COTTAGE

Plattsburgh Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2BR /five persons MAX/ 1 full bath

Heron Ledge Cottages are nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain across from historic Valcour Island. This cottage compound is ideal for quiet stays, romantic getaways and nature-filled family vacations. The lake is situated between the NY Adirondack and the VT Green Mountains. We are very close to Snug Harbor Marina - Lake Champlain Boatworks and the NYS Peru Boat Launch. The cottage is freshly furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen. Cable TV, DVD player, linens and wireless internet are provided. Opportunities for sight-seeing and sport activities abound. We have hosted bass tournament winners. Stay for a week or get-away weekend (3 night minimum stays with higher nightly rates for shorter stays). This is a non-smoking property. NO pets are allowed. WEEK-LONG RENTALS ARE PREFERRED IN SUMMER.

Nearby activities: 3 golf courses; Ausable Chasm; Ferry to Vermont; Shelburne Museum; Ben and Jerry's; Vermont Teddy Bear Factory; Montreal, Canada; Skiing and Rock/Ice Climbing, Adirondack High Peaks; Hiking, Bicycling, Kayaking, Autumn leaf-peeping and fun at the site of two Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY.

Bass Tournament Hosts: Bass fishermen like the property because their equipment is kept private and safe. Bass boats can be attached to power and worked on under spot lights after dark if needed. One winning fisherman said that he liked the quiet so that he could concentrate better on his fishing gear and strategy.

Skiing: We are a 45 minute easy drive to Whiteface Mountain. Ski mountains in Vermont and Canada are about 2 hours away.

Cross-country skiing can be done near our property, on Lake Champlain when it is frozen, or at cross-country ski centers

in Lake Placid.

Hiking and Bicycling: People love to go to the different Adirondack High Peaks and then return to lakeside after the hikes.

Others bicycle all around the NY area near us, with some taking their bikes on the ferries to Vermont Islands or mainland

and returning via a different ferry later in the day.

In our childhoods, owners Phoebe and Bruce were both fortunate to stay on lakes, small and large, in housekeeping cottages. We found this unique property and saw it as a way to preserve the 'old-fashioned', simple-pleasures vacation. Because our home is also here, we can live it and share it!

Direct access to Lake Champlain with a sandy beach. Across the street from the Kayak Shack which offers lessons, hourly or daily rentals and other tours and facilities. Please tell them that you are staying at Heron Ledge Cottages for additional customer service. Guests with boats on trailers may park them in a secluded lawn area and put the boats in and out of the water at the very nearby Peru NYS Boat Launch, which has a new dock (2014) and a great parking area. OR, the guests may choose to rent a slip next door at Lake Champlain Boatworks (Snug Harbour Marina) and just walk over each day. Those with friends and family in the area are encouraged to invite them for day visits with additional parking available on the lawn next to the driveway.

Nice Lake Champlain Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We had the nicest vacation to Lake Champlain and Heron Ledge Cottage. The property was clean and well-kept. The owners were right on hand to give directions, to answer questions and to meet our needs. The location is peaceful and the view of the sailboats on the lake can't be beat. The yard was perfect for our 1-year-old son who was just learning to walk! Be sure to note that there are three cabins and the owner's home on the property, so renting all 3 would be great for a family reunion or group vacation.

Fantastic property, cottage and host!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage made our trip so enjoyable. Our daughter was almost 3 at the time and we did have a lot of rain - which means not being trapped in a single room hotel room was priceless. The host was warm and welcoming. The scenery beautiful and the cottage was perfect for our needs. Thank you and looking forward to next year's stay!

Clean and adorable cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I chose this cottage as I am from Upstate NY and love Lake Champlain. I had friends visiting from Florida and we all loved this waterfront cottage! The owner, Phoebe, was very gracious and her son even made a bonfire on the beach for us one evening. This was centrally located for all of the places we wanted to visit- Ausable Chasm, Lake Placid/Whiteface and Montreal. We enjoyed a few beautiful sunrises on the beach with our coffee. I would definitely stay here again. Clean and well-stocked.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Heron Lodge. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was clean, charming and thoughtfully prepared. The kitchen was very well stocked with every necessity needed to prepare meals. The location was peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed the gorgeous sunrises over Lake Champlain and the view of the mountains in Vermont. The owners were very friendly, yet respectful of our privacy. We only wish we could have stayed longer! We look forward to staying at Heron Lodge again and would highly recommend it.
