Within walking distance is Indian Bay Marina for boat dockage at $2.00 a foot per day. Pay for six and stay for 7. On this beautiful body of water, rest, relax, and recreate with swimming, fishing and boating, depending on the season. On land there are lots of country road miles for biking, trails for hiking and areas for picnics as well as a 9-hole golf course for some great Fall golfing. There are at least a dozen other golf courses within an hour drive. Experience the rock climbing wall, The Crux, at Camp Poko-MacCready, less than fifteen minutes away. Or if you are looking for a less physical and less active time away, visit our well-stocked library to borrow a good book to read and just sit by the waters of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains to read and reflect. If you are a movie fan, two multi-plex theaters in Plattsburgh are only 30 minutes away. And if it is a vacation from cooking that you are looking for, enjoy our local restaurants in Willsboro, Essex, Elizabethtown, Keene, Lake Placid, Wilmington, and Peru. If music is your thing, spend your Tuesday evening at the local bowling alley's 'Open Mic' to join in or enjoy. We are located within minutes or a few hours of culture, history and fun at Ft. Ticonderoga, Whiteface Mountain, Lake Placid or Montreal. The view of the Adirondack Mountains to your west and Valcour Island to your North will offer some great scenery. Make this camp your 'come home to' retreat after a day of fishing, boating, leaf peeping, antique hunting, or a days shopping trip to Burlington, VT as a foot passenger on the Port Kent Ferry. This 3 bedroom camp has wireless internet and cable television, electric heat and air conditioning are there for your temperature comfort. There is a washer and dryer on site for your use for no additional fee. There is an indoor tub/shower and an outside shower for your Adirondack pleasure. Enjoy the Beauty of the Adirondacks in all seasons by the shores of Willsboro Bay on Lake Champlain. See our calendar.

About Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young

Born here, grew up here, live here and retired here. Can't imagine being anywhere else from Spring to Fall than on Lake Champlain. As for my brother, the co-owner, he was born here and returned here after a short time away, but always spent his summers here with his family every opportunity they had. This is where 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th generation family members have made great memories, and we hope it will be the spot for many wonderful memories made by your family.

Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young purchased this cottage in 1963

Why Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young chose Willsboro

Our parents turned this property over to my brother and I many years ago, so the property would remain in the family. When it is not rented, many family memories of birthdays, anniversaries, and family reunions are made and recalled. This waterfront property is conveniently located near the marina, the State Boat Launch, a Golf Course, Tennis Courts, pickleball court and in close proximity to so many great day trips, and if you just want to relax, it offers just the right setting. Look at our Reviews!!!!! It also fits the needs of fishermen looking for a place to stay with our 60 foot dock and mooring.

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Willsboro since the early 60's; with many of our friends and family still calling Willsboro Point their summer home. Randy & Bobbi are fantastic hosts; their camp has some of the best views on the point. Dock and mooring available for all your toys. Lake frontage is pristine!!! It's a fisherman's paradise, with monster smallmouth / largemouth hitting on crankbaits!

At days end, a cocktail or two on the porch? Or maybe dinner at IBM? Sunsets are amazing!!! And don't forget Ethel's.... 'Michigans' are a must!

Thanks for another great visit, it's the best 2 weeks of our year.

Best to all; until next year.

Super September Week!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented the camp now for 6 years (always the same early September week) and the weather was fantastic!! The place was as clean and comfortable as ever. We had friends down on different days and had plenty of room to offer them an overnight stay and on the one overcast day we joined my brother-in-law for some golf at the beautiful local 9-hole course. The view from inside with all the new windows is just stunning! The lake was perfect with the mooring for our boat and kayaks at our disposal. The week truly was one of the best we've ever had and have already booked for next year! We love it!!!

Thanks For A Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our families' first visit to Lake Champlain and it won't be our last. This camp is spotlessly clean, well maintained and contains everything needed for a great vacation. The location, above all else is simply amazing. great for swimming, boating, campfires, star gazing and just relaxing. The thing that puts it over the top however, is the personal care and concern shown by Bobbi and Randy and their family. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Family Retreat for Plattsburgh Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We anticipated renting a cottage for the week and instead got a well maintained, clean home right on the lake. The location is second to none. The views are surreal. We would take the row boat out and could see the bottom of the lake a good 20 feet down. I have never seen anything like it. The trip to Plattsburgh is less than 40 minutes. It is about an hour to Lake Placid and an hour with a Ferry Ride which is always fun to Burlington. The home itself was spotless. The bedrooms all have queen size beds, which is nice with 3 sets of couples (no couple gets the twin beds room). The living space is open with plenty of seating around the tv, with a huge table in the kitchen. We had great weather and spent most of our time outside at the picnic tables for our meals. The owners are the most gracious hosts and are so eager and willing to help in anyway they can. They are nearby for your convenience but not overbearing. They are so kind I can't say enough about them. The process for renting was so easy from beginning to end. The attention to detail they pay to their renters and how they want you to feel as if it is your own home is priceless. We went up for a College Graduation and needed a place for a week. What we left with is a place we all want to return to year in and year out.

Paradise at Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our two grandchildren, 11 and 13, on vacation, and a wonderful memory was created. The home was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Its location in a well protected cove was ideal. The owners, Barbara Payee and Doug Young, were friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. Days were spent fishing, boating, tubing, and swimming. Evenings were for barbecues and toasting smores in their firepit. We took our 17' boat to Burlington, Vermont, which was 15 minutes away. Another day, we drove our grandchildren to Quebec, Canada, which was about a half hour away. We would highly recommend this scenic retreat to everyone.

Terrific place to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family just experienced a fabulous two weeks stay at the camp. We had 6 adults, a toddler and an infant and everyone was very comfortable. The owners are extremely friendly and do whatever they can to make a stay pleasant. They are pet friendly (literally), accommodating, and provide all the “little” extras that make a visit easy and special. The kitchen was well equipped with basics (pots, pans, silverware, plates) and extras (blender, food processor, two refrigerators). The washer / dryer help with a longer stay and young children. Outside you are right on the water with good boat facilities, a row boat, a large dock, a gas grill, a “fire ring” and comfortable seating for relaxation or enjoying the scenery. The location is close to many off lake activities (golf, Lake Placid, Ausable Chasm). We definitely recommend the camp and plan to return.
