We have a large deck on our property which sits right on the water which can be used for small events including family parties and weddings!! Our dock is built to accommodate up to 4-20' ski boats or smaller fishing boats. A row boat is available for use with your rental. The owners have a 20' ski boat and would be happy to take anyone for a scenic ride or for some water skiing or tubing. Summer fun is truly just outside your door!

About Tom DePoy
This family owned property is in its 3rd generation of ownership. Mother, son, and daughter have lived at and been a part of this property for over 60 years! A great deal of work has been done to the lands and to the cottages in the last few years to get them to where our guests will love them as much as we do!! We consider ourselves very lucky to call Watch Point home! We believe that you will feel at home from the moment you arrive to the time you say, 'goodbye, see ya next year!!'
Tom DePoy purchased this cottage in 1951
Why Tom DePoy chose Shoreham
Watch Point is as easy to get to as it is secluded. A mere 3 miles to the village of Shoreham, VT where you can find a bank, country store with deli and gas, restaurant, post office, and Catholic and Protestant churches. Back at Watch Point, you have the seclusion of being at the end of a private road and the luxury to use Lake Champlain in any way you see fit. Take a ride in a boat and fish, tube, ski, or just enjoy the 100 miles of lake that is accessible from Watch Point. There are 3 cottages to choose from and each has its own special charm!
What makes this cottage unique
Watch Point is one of the oldest historical properties in the State of Vermont. Lake Champlain was critical during the Revolutionary War. Fort Ticonderoga was a major fortress in the region and whoever held the fort essentially controlled the southern end of the lake. Watch Point was critical to the defense of the fort as it served as a lookout and warning station for any enemy ships which might be approaching from the north. The warning sent from Watch Point would give the Fort time to prepare for an ensuing attack. We have a light house on our point and the main house (Inn) is over 200 years old! We are rich in history and tradition here at Watch Point. You will be happy when you make it part of your tradition!
Guestbook comments from the owner
I was born and raised in Vermont and ended up in Austin, Texas as a firefighter. I wanted to show my 12 year old daughter my roots and decided to rent a cottage at Watch Point. The 4th of July week was so much fun for me and my daughter and the 4th of July party was the best I have ever been to! The Watch Point owners really care about making the experience fun and relaxing for everyone who visits!! The property and the lake are so large that if you want to be alone, you can be. However, if you want to have fun with others and meet new friends, there is plenty of fun to be had with some really great people!
Visit if you can! You will always want to go back! I will be there for 4th of July week again next summer!!
