You are also only a 20 minute drive to great shopping deals and restaurants in Plattsburgh. 45 minutes can take you to lake placid and the high peaks region, or to the spectacular Ausable Chasm. Only 1h15 from Montreal. Only 45 minutes from the greatest vertical in the east at Whiteface.

Privacy and comfort are the two adjectives to describe our vacation. We will be back, location was amazing and the heated floors were fabulous on cold winter mornings.
The house was wonderful and the views were amazing. It was quite snowy when we came but it was exactly what we wanted and more importantly, it was exactly what my children wanted. Would love to come back for the summer to see what the area has to offer.
Beautiful stay and we had everything that we needed. The house and view were beautiful.
Our family of 4 was so very impressed with this vacation home! We enjoyed the snow, but was even happier to be greeted with a freshly plowed driveway. The home itself had everything you could need - dishes, spices, soap, extra blankets and towels...many of the guests left things behind for the next group to visit, as did we. The basement was full of whatever we would need to enjoy ourselves. We absolutely couldn't be in the winter wonderland without a fireplace, and were blessed with a stockpile of firewood, too! Furnishings were super comfortable, home had a beautiful open floorplan ( with heated floors to keep it cozy), and the bathroom upstairs was an added bonus! There was plenty of room for the kids to explore and get their wiggles out both inside and out. We felt like the only ones on the little penninsula, but were close enough to a friendly little town with walmart, coffe shops, shopping, and more.
The house and grounds were very well kept and attractive. The owner thought of everything that we would need.
We had a very enjoyable and pleasant stay!
My husband and I, along with our dog, had a wonderful time. The house is modern, full of light, has great views from almost every room, and has everything you need for the stay (including those little things which you never are sure will be there but don't necessarily want to bother the owner asking about like dishwashing fluid, cooking spices, silver foil, garbage bags, etc). The property itself is situated on a bay, with no immediate neighbors that you can see as you gaze out at the lake. The lake near the shore has a sandy bottom and is calm, clear and quite shallow, which is really nice if you just like to wade in the water. While we did see a few motorboats during the labor day weekend, none of them came near the bay, and during the week the lake was very quiet. The location is a bit away from it all--make sure you bring lots of food unless you want to either drive to Pittsfield (30 min) to a grocery store, or Dannemora (15 min) to a convenience station. If you like to keep active and not just sit by the lake, I also suggest planning out some trips ahead of time (the owner had some great maps of the Adirondacks, but no other information for nearby activities or specific hikes/trailheads). I would especially recommend a hike up to Silver Lake Mountain (only 2 miles RT, but we sure got winded and had to thread slowly among the rocks), along with more gentle hikes to Silver Lake Bog and Bluffs [both about 35 min south, you can find details online]. Point Au Roche State Park (about 45 min NE) is also quite nice, with many forested trails along with great views of Lake Champlain. While we didn't take advantage of them, there are also several ferries between NY and VT, which is a nice, inexpensive way to take in Lake Champlain. I would highly recommend this property!
