This classic cottage is set on 1.3 acres of land with a large, sunny yard, large dock and 300 ft of waterfront which faces a undisturbed state park. The cottage is designed as a family retreat and therefore simply furnished. While we have WIFI there is no TV, or video games and cell reception is not good. Its a great place to unplug, relax with the family and pick up a book or a fishing rod.
The three bedrooms sleep 6. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed; the second has a full and a twin; the third has twin beds setup for children (linens and towels are provided). The bedrooms open onto a living room with a new gas fireplace for cool fall evenings.
The kitchen has an electric stove top, oven and microwave, dishwasher, and Washer/Dryer. The kitchen breakfast table has views of the lake. On the back of the house, a beautiful, large, screened-in porch provides panoramic views of the lake and the Adirondack park and mountains on the New York side of the lake. A central single bathroom has a sink, toilet, and stall shower (no bathtub).
Outside we there is lots to do. There is Lawn furniture, 6 bikes, a Weber charcoal grill, Hammock, a swing set, large dock and mooring which are included. Access to the private dock is via a rustic path and stairs.
A large 17' canoe, rowing dinghy and Life jackets are included.

The Champlain Valley is set between the Green mountains to the East and the Champlain Lake and Adirondacks to the West. The valley is a breadbasket home to agriculture, commerce and a rich American history. The valley offers many attractions to the vacationer.
The valley was once a critical war corridor for revolutionary America as it sought independence from the British. Later the Commercial value of the “highway” of the lake and canal system dominated the lake. Only in the 20th century did the lake begin to be a vacation destination with the advent of train travel and the Adirondack vacation movement. At this time a number of “Summer Camps” (uninsulated simple cottages) began to spring up along the lake. Our cottage is modest example of one of these camps.
Today the valley maintains its rural history with a strong preservation campaign to save open space through conservation. In a effort to help visitors explore the valley we have highlighted activities on our website
