This magnificent “Mountaineer Lodge on Lake Champlain” is a custom built colonial style home that has recently undergone a major renovation project that was finished off with a beautiful and warm Adirondack Decor. 45 feet of sandy beach awaits your on Lake Champlain with beautiful vistas of the Green Mountains of Vermont. You can partake in any activity you wish here. Swimming, hiking, golfing, biking, kayaking, canoeing and horseback riding just to name a few. Be sure to visit some of the many historical sites as well.
There are sleeping accommodations for up to 16 guests in this property ideal for family vacations, holidays, honeymoons, and reunions. Or just come here to get away and enjoy the beautiful views and all of what the Adirondacks has to offer. Set up perfectly with ample indoor and outdoor space for the big families or groups of friends and never feeling over crowded.
“Mountaineer Lodge” is located just 3 miles from the Port Kent ferry to escape to downtown Burlington, Vermont for a day of shopping and an evening of fabulous culinary experiences. Also, just a short distance from the Internationally Acclaimed Village of Lake Placid, with the Renowned Olympic Center. Now let us not forget the historical site of the Ausable Chasm waterfalls just a few miles from the Mountaineer Lodge for a wonderful afternoon of site seeing with the family. Within close proximity, you can check out the Harmony Golf Course, for either lunch/dinner or to hit the greens for the afternoon. There is always something going on no matter what season you spend. Let the memories begin!
Spent a week here with a total of six adults and 4 children and had a great vacation. The water was very user friendly especially to small children. Lots of different things to do in the area and we have already booked a return trip for next year.
I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the overall condition of the property. They thought of everything from kitchen utensils to beach towels. The beach was perfect and included numerous chairs in which to relax and take in the view. I would also like to add that properties with a sandy beach and this type of view are few and far between. The proximity to Plattsburgh is a plus not to mention the proximity of numerous attractions for all ages. In the evening it was peaceful, no noisy neighbors. if you're looking for an affordable place for a family reunion or a family getaway look no further. We had a great time and will be returning next year.
We had a multi-generational family vacation in August. The house was just the right size for 9 of us: 6 adults, 1 child and 2 toddlers. We appreciated the grassy yard and the proximity of the beach. Also, the weather was perfect. We really enjoyed the outdoor picnic table, where we ate almost all of our meals. We liked the fact that we had a working grill with appropriate tools.
We spent a day in Burlington and enjoyed it. Part of our group spent a day in Plattsburgh, and we all really enjoyed our day at Ausable.
On the minus side, there are almost no closets, dressers, small tables or even wall hooks in the bedrooms. For a pretty modest amount of $$ the owners could remedy that, along with some extra dishes (not enough for 9, let alone 16), some hand and kitchen towels, better quality bath towels, some better cookware (some of the cookware was just awful -- scratched Teflon, warped pans, etc.). We think the experience would be improved with an information sheet that told us about markets and restaurants and house-related info. Were we supposed to use the washer? Were we allowed to use the various boats that were pulled up? How should we have separated the recyclables and how to dispose of them? These are all small things and not expensive, but would make life a little nicer.
We would rent this property again.
