We are two brothers and a sister who purchased this camp in 2012.

Diane August purchased this estate in 2012

While we no longer live in New York state, we all have roots in New York and the Adirondacks. We grew up in New York state and two generations of Augusts attended camp in the Lake Placid area. We have spent many happy summers with our families in Westport, New York swimming and boating in the lake, hiking in the Adirondack mountains, and enjoying the 'laid-back' pace of this beautiful part of New York.

This camp is an ideal location for a family reunion. Located on Lake Champlain, the camp sleeps 15 and

the cottage, which also can be rented, sleeps up to 7.

The camp is located in the Adirondack State Park, a pristine 'six-million-acre civilized wilderness' that is 'larger than Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Great Smokies and Yosemite national parks combined. The Park is a haven for outdoor recreation (http://visitadirondacks.com/). The lake is a perfect place for motorboats, sailboats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boarding; the Adirondack mountains have hundreds of miles of hiking trails. There are two local golf courses. At the many towns in the park, it is easy to find excellent local cuisine, and shop for antiques, art, and local crafts. All summer there are farmer's markets, art shows, and theater and music 'happenings'.

Westport Lake House over the 4th of July week

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 11, 2013

We used the house as a family get together across 4 generations. The first floor suite worked well for the 70+ member who has difficulty with stairs. The gym building offered basketball, badminton and billards for the three pre-teens. The dock by the lake was well used by the children, although access by only a ladder may have kept the adults from swimming as much. The house is great for a queit get-away. There are sites in the area to visit, but most are about an hour's drive from the house so having a car is important. Also there isn't much in the way of food stores in Westport so I'd recommend eiher bringing the core meal staples with you or getting groceries on the way to Westport. The house has many large common so even with a large group we never felt like we were packed in or living on top of each other. The TV room is well set up for watching movies. The best feature to the house is the porch overseeing the lake. As the adults came down in the morning we spent very enjoyable time drinking coffee and chatting on the large stone porch. Even though the week we were there was mostly rainy, we still had a great time with the roomy house and the gym for the kids. I'd recommend this rental for extended family get-togethers or groups of friends (with or without children) looking for a quiet base to spend a week of vacation.

This exceptional rental exceeded expectations!

This stunning rental is located on a beautiful piece of property in Westport, NY, with a gorgeous and expansive view of Lake Champlain. The listing represents the property well, although there were actually several more rooms than shown in the pictures (a screened porch and 2nd kitchen). We had 13 people staying at the house, and it never felt crowded - the house is huge, interior clean and decorated beautifully and comfortably. It has many living spaces for relaxing, both indoor and out, and two docks on the lake. Two refrigerators accommodated all of our food and drink. This property had more to offer than I could take advantage of in a week and still have a chance to relax (indoor/outdoor games, fishing, kayaking, basketball, pool table, swimming, dvd/vcr, wireless internet).

We had really nice meals at the Westport Hotel and Tavern in Westport, and the Turtle Island Café in Willsboro, NY. We spent much of our time in Vermont; accessing it by the Lake Champlain Bridge from Crown Point, N.Y., to Addison, VT, or the Essex Ferry from Essex, NY to Charlotte, VT. We went to the Vermont Teddy Bear factory (in Shelburne, VT) with the kids and took a pun-filled and beary fantastic tour ($4/person) that shouldn't be missed. The Dakin Farm in Ferrisburg, VT is also worth a visit if you want to try/buy some fabulous Vermont food products. We visited the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, VT. The museum teams up with the Basin Harbor Club to offer lunch at the Red Mill Restaurant, an afternoon Historic Lake Cruise on Lake Champlain aboard tour boat Escape, and admission to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum for $29/person. It is well worth it! Fort Ticonderoga, NY, and the Shelburne Museum in Shelburne, VT make for fun and informative day trips for people of all ages.

The owner is very personable and quickly responded to any questions I had. She went above and beyond the norm, and I felt very comfortable working with her. She provided a lot of amenities such as paper products, linens and towels which I am used bringing for rentals. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives, and wished we'd rented the property for two weeks instead of one! The property was a GREAT value! Be ready to feel spoiled!
