Heron Ledge Cottages are nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain across from historic Valcour Island. The cottage shown on this listing is known as 'Lynn's Cottage' and has two bedrooms. This cottage compound is ideal for quiet stays, romantic getaways and nature-filled family vacations. The lake is situated between the NY Adirondack and the VT Green Mountains. We are very close to Snug Harbor Marina - Lake Champlain Boatworks and the NYS Peru Boat Launch. The cottage is freshly furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen. Cable TV, DVD player, linens and wireless internet are provided. Opportunities for sight-seeing and sport activities abound. We have hosted bass tournament winners. Stay for a week or get-away weekend (3 night minimum stays with higher nightly rates for shorter stays). The owner at this cabin provides 3 kayaks, 1 paddle boat and 1 canoe for guest use during the course of their stay. There are paddles and life vests available, but if you are an experienced paddler and have your own life vest, it is always best to wear your own as it will maximize your comfort level during your paddling experience. Life vest use is required during use of all owner-provided watercraft. This is a non-smoking property. NO pets are allowed. WEEK-LONG RENTALS ARE PREFERRED IN SUMMER.

Bass Tournament Hosts: Bass fishermen like the property because their equipment is kept private and safe. Bass boats can be attached to power and worked on under spot lights after dark if needed. One winning fisherman said that he liked the quiet so that he could concentrate better on his fishing gear and strategy.
Skiing: We are a 45 minute easy drive to Whiteface Mountain. Ski mountains in Vermont and Canada are about 2 hours away.
Cross-country skiing can be done near our property, on Lake Champlain when it is frozen, or at cross-country ski centers
in Lake Placid.
Hiking and Bicycling: People love to go to the different Adirondack High Peaks and then return to lakeside after the hikes.
Others bicycle all around the NY area near us, with some taking their bikes on the ferries to Vermont Islands or mainland
and returning via a different ferry later in the day.
