Perfect Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

We have rented Lakeside for the past ten years for two weeks each time. It has been the perfect gathering place for extended family and friends. Beautiful setting, clean, spacious, the house and the property have something for everyone.The owners are available for questions, are friendly and accommodating. They keep the property fresh and upgraded whether by adding a new dock or a freshly painted room-it is fun to see the subtle, tasteful changes each year. The location is perfect! Westport affords easy access to out door fun- on the lake or in the mountains, yet a ferry ride or mountain drive can bring you to interesting cities of Burlington or Lake Placid. Local airports are convenient for people to fly in for a long weekend. Though there is so much to see and do in the area, this property is so delightful that once we arrive we tend not to leave. Vacationing at Lakeside is the highlight of our year.

Family Fun on Lake Champlain!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I were thrilled to find this large rustic lake house for our family reunion. We grew up on Lake Champlain, and our parents still live in the area, so it worked as the perfect spot! We had three generations in the house, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved fishing off the dock, and we all enjoyed games of ping pong. It was wonderful for us all to be able to sit out on the large deck overlooking the beautiful lake. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed...plenty of dishes, glassware, pots and pans, and every conceivable utensil we could possibly need. We had three young boys with us, so having a washer and dryer there was such a bonus! The large kitchen/eating area was great for our big family meals, and the spacious family room was perfect for visiting and family game nights. We are already talking about next time!!

My favorite kind of place!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find the windows open and doors unlocked, how refreshing. The house has so much character which we love and enjoy. We appreciated the fact that this retreat has been much loved and used. The house is quite large and proud of itself. It has a camp-like feeling and natural but is most comfortable and well-equipped. The huge stove and griddle was the gathering place in the mornings for our family breakfasts. Such fun.

Great location for large family groups

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent week, 16 of us. Well equipped kitchen for large groups. Very much a camp but most comfortable. Clean and well maintained, the labeling in the kitchen very helpful. Gorgeous deck overlooking the lake. Waterfront good, water shoes a must. Boat dockage on moorings so willing to swim out to boat or use canoe which is available with the property. Swing set available for kids, table tennis competitions were enjoyed.

Ferry available nearby at Essex, NY to Charlotte, Vermont and also Lake Placid. Good shopping for groceries in Elizabethtown. Very good golf course at Westport.

Upon arrival found premises to be unclean and unacceptable . Floors were dirty , screens were like lint traps with pollen and unclean, sliding screen door to kitchen missing, broken outside furniture, grounds unkempt. Place was a mess. Called owner about situation and she was too busy to come down and see. Later on she did negotiate some price adjustment but after spending a day plus cleaning the damage had been done. As grandparents arriving with our son's family with three children including a baby we were not happy.. I will not accept the owners refusal ( lived locally ) to not come over to review the situation .

Fort Ticonderoga is a 45 minute drive south and provides a rich history of the area. Lake Placid, 1980 Olympics venue, is 45 minutes away and offers an array of bars, restaurants, activities and shopping. The Adirondacks offer great hiking opportunities while the Champlain Valley is one of my favorites areas for road biking. You can reach Burlington, Vt. by taking the Essex Charlotte ferry. This college city is a great place to dine, shop and enjoy performing arts.
