Phil has spent summers here since he was a child. His family have been the only owners. He has enjoyed and maintained the house over the years. Phil's family has been part of the local history and one can watch a video at the visitors' center in which he and a few others talk about this history. Our family uses the house part of the year and we share it with visitors at times.
This spot is where you come to release your stress and kick back and relax in the peaceful quiet of Lake Champlain. The view is spectacular and the setting serene.
We so enjoyed our stay in your home. Everything we needed was provided. The house is well maintained and equipped. The lake front and the sunrises were exceptional. We enjoyed Westport so much that we are planning to make that area our first choice when we travel from home. What a treasure this small township provides . Your home was wonderful.
