Essex Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Wake up to an exquisite sunrise! This secluded 5 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath summer cottage sits right on the water’s edge of Lake Champlain looking out to the high peaks of Vermont - Mt. Mansfield (Stowe) and Camel’s Hump. Enjoy the lake view from all first floor rooms and the upstairs master.

Sip a glass of wine with your dinner on the deck while watching the sunset’s purple glow over the Vermont Mountains followed by a glorious moonrise. Or watch the sailboats and Essex Ferry cross as you enjoy the private shale beach and large platform rock, good for reading, relaxing, sunning. Watch your kids swim, learn to skip rocks, or collect ‘beach’ glass. Launch your canoe or kayak off the beach. Explore the woods and head on down to south beach.

This 1889 cottage is rustic, used by the owner’s family, so is not simply a rental house. It is prized for its views. It has a first floor master bedroom with king-sized bed facing the lake and a full bath – great for people who do not want or can’t do stairs or who want to catch sunrises from their bed.

The kitchen-dining room wall has been opened so you can cook and see the lake. The large oak table in dining-room can seat ten. Both the living-room and dining-room have doors onto a small screened-in porch with old-fashioned glider. The living-room also has a wood burning fireplace. Upstairs is the original master bedroom with its baby porthole to one of the smaller bedrooms. There is a full bath with claw foot tub. The two other bedrooms complete the second floor.

Please note the cottage is indeed rustic with no TV, Computer, or Wifi. One mile into town and also in Willsboro, Wadhams and Elizabethtown, are libraries with internet access.

Essex, N.Y is an architectural treat as the entire town is on the National Historic Registry due to the numerous pre-civil war homes. A mile walk from the cottage and you are there for your morning newspaper and cup of coffee. The Adirondack high peaks with its numerous hiking trails are about an hour away as is Lake Placid. One can spend a great day in Montreal which is 90 miles to the north. Vermont is a 20 minute ferry ride from town - fun even just for the crossing at sunset and brings you close to the renowned Shelburne Museum as well as Burlington, a lively university on-the-lake small city.

About Melissa and Steve Jones

Love sailing and being right on the lake. Can gaze at it for hours on end!

Melissa and Steve Jones purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Melissa and Steve Jones chose Essex

My father bought this cottage sight unseen in 1949 as he knew and loved the area from hiking the Adirondacks as a kid. My family has been coming here every year since '49 and we are now into the third generation plus!

What makes this cottage unique

Lake front view with exquisite sunrises and reflected sunsets.

Best of all, it is quiet and peaceful, yet near to mountain and lake activities.

Great Adirondack Camp

  • 5 of 5
Jack's Rock Cottage is a great old Adirondack place to stay with wonderful views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont. You can sit in the house, on the deck, in the yard, or walk down to the lake and enjoy the views. House has plenty of bedroom and kitchen space. It also has three bathroom areas which is unusual for a house of this age. It was clean when we arrived and is maintained. Its location near the Essex Ferry makes it easy to visit Vermont or drive to anywhere in the high peaks region of New York. Owners are easy to work with and very helpful. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area and understands this is a property built long ago but still has modern conveniences like a washer and dryer.

Peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family of 6 (all adults) stayed here for a week while in town for a family reunion. The private beach and deck are so beautiful and peaceful. The cottage had everything we needed and the master bedroom on the first floor was spacious with wonderful views. We heard loons, gulls and other birds while enjoying the breathtaking sunrises from the deck. We didn't spend a lot of time indoors as we were out hiking in the Adirondacks and exploring nearby cities like Lake Placid, Westport, and Burlington. We also took a raft down the Ausable River just 1/2 hour north. There were plenty of things to do nearby. It was a perfect spot for our vacation.

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you enjoyed the beauty of Jack’s Rock cottage's location and that you got up to see the sunrises from the deck. That time of day is often when we see and/or hear the loons!
Also glad that the cottage offered you whatever you needed and that you and your family were able to explore so many of the fun places nearby. We too love hiking in the Adirondacks as well as taking the ferry across Lake Champlain to enjoy a bit of Vermont.

Summertime Stay at Jack's Rock

Summertime Stay at Jack's Rock
  • 5 of 5
A wonderful old-fashioned cottage on the edge of Lake Champlain, Jack's Rock was our hub of our hiking, swimming and sailing activities in the area. The place has tons of charm, a fantastic deck overlooking the lake, and a cozy little beach made of flat black stones. The kids and adults both loved it.

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. (Thank you!)

Only thing to be aware of is the proximity of the the road. Although it's not a busy road, the cars that do drive by, drive rather fast -- and due to the woods and bushes, it's difficult to see them, and vice versa.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your lovely review and so glad we could be of help to you and your family.
I just wanted to clarify that our renter is referring to exiting from the driveway - it requires that you go slowly until you can see if there are any cars in either direction. Good point about the trees and bushes - we will trim them back immediately.

Great summer get away!

  • 5 of 5
We have been vacationing in this cottage for three years. It is the most relaxing place that I have been. The views are terrific at any time of day or night. Hiking, boating, swimming are all easily accessible and wonderfully satisfying. The kitchen is fully equipped but not fancy. We enjoyed preparing meals with locally grown ingredients and eating them on the deck while watching the lake. The owners

#355529 Cottage at Essex NY

  • 5 of 5
We went for a full week in August 2011. We had 2 adults, a 12 year old and 3 teenage boys. We had more than enough room. The place is big but also cozy. When you are on the back deck facing the water you cannot see or hear either neighbor to the left or to the right. It is very private and exclusive.

The cottage is a half mile from the village of Essex where you will find quaint little shops, an Ice Cream shop and an art gallery. The ferry boat to VT is right there in Essex. It is about 8 miles N to the closest grocery market.

We LOVED this cottage and would highly recommend it to anyone with a large family etc.

Top notch!!!
