Why Sue Carter chose Plattsburgh
In their childhoods, owners Phoebe and Bruce were both fortunate to stay on lakes, small and large, in housekeeping cottages. We found this unique property and saw it as a way to preserve the 'old-fashioned', simple-pleasures vacation. Because their home is also here, they can live it and share it!
What makes this Cottage unique
Direct access to Lake Champlain with a sandy beach. Across the street from the Kayak Shack which offers lessons, hourly or daily rentals and other tours and facilities. Please tell them that you are staying at Heron Ledge Cottages for additional customer service. Guests with boats on trailers may park them in a secluded lawn area and put the boats in and out of the water at the very nearby Peru NYS Boat Launch, which has a new dock (2014) and a great parking area. OR, the guests may choose to rent a slip next door at Lake Champlain Boatworks (Snug Harbour Marina) and just walk over each day. Those with friends and family in the area are encouraged to invite them for day visits with additional parking available on the lawn next to the driveway.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Beautiful view of Lake Champlain and Valcour Island...
Lots of info about property, kitchen supplied well...vey cozy cottage, bed comfy, easy access to city...closest grocery Big M 10 min away...kayak shack paddle on Ausable River, half mile for local fav Michigans: McSweeny's or Clare and Carls. Book early as the other two cottages have had summer residence people who have been coming there for years.
Good location but the the cottage was not clean.
We enjoyed the kayaks, lake, sunrise views and peace but not happy with the cleaness of the cottage.
We are glad that you enjoyed the aspects of our property that we have expanded for guest enjoyment in the last couple of years. Our cleaning staff is very professional and we are sorry that you felt that there were parts of their work that could be improved upon. If we had been made aware of your concerns about the state of the cottage while you were here, we would have been happy to have staff re-do the cottage when you first arrived. Given we did not receive any word from you about your concerns while you were here, sadly, we could do nothing to assure your happiness.
Thank you for your stay with us and we wish you happy travels on your future adventures.
Great vacation getaway!
We absolutely loved our stay at Heron Ledge! Despite being close to the highway, 2 other cottages, a campground and a marina, it was remarkably quiet and very peaceful. We enjoyed the views of the lake and Valcour Island / Lighthouse from the deck of Lynn's Cottage, and we were most appreciative of the fully equipped kitchen, cable television, wi-fi, in-unit washer and dryer, and the really comfortable bed. The linens and dishes were top-notch, and I was able to find an appropriate pot / pan / dish for everything I prepared in the kitchen. We were close to many wonderful attractions, good restaurants and a variety of shopping opportunities---all of which we took advantage of! The owners and cleaning staff were most pleasant, and Sue, the realtor with whom we dealt when making our arrangements, was extremely helpful. It was a great experience, and we look forward to visiting again!
Very nice cottage to spend a week with the family. This was our fourth year and we plan to return next summer.
Simply the Best!
As always, Phoebe and Bruce have made our stay the absolute best. The accommodations are superb and made our vacation well worth waiting for. The attention to detail and immaculate condition of the cabin have made this our first vacation choice for our last three consecutive family vacations.
I cannot recommend this property enough. If you want seclusion and privacy as well as being close to all the best of the Adirondacks, this is the place.
