:: LOST LODGE @ THE LAKE :: Lavishly Furnished / 4 Master Suites & 2 Living Areas + Lakefront...

Bedrooms 4
Space 3,500 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Directly on the lake, 4 bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, sleeps 8-10

No expense was spared in its design and construction to make this the most modern and comfortable house in the North Country. You can relax in one of the two living rooms and prepare your meals in one of the two kitchens, either on the main level or on the lake level. There are even two sets of washer/dryers, one for each floor. The house is air conditioned for your comfort in the summer. The result? This may be most luxurious and most meticulously furnished vacation home on Lake Champlain.

This year, we have added even more amenities, including a dining area for eight on the back lawn facing the lake, an expanded kitchen area, and new Smart TV's in both living rooms and all bedrooms.

In short, your stay at 'Lost Lodge' will be a memorable experience. But don't take our word for it. Just click on 'View comments from previous guests' immediately below.


'Lost Lodge' sits right on Lake Champlain with breathtaking views of the Vermont mountains. The house itself is set 300 feet back from a quiet cul-de-sac. The property slopes down to the beach, which is remarkably like a pool: the lake bottom here consists of large flat plates of stone that make it easy to just walk right into the lake in summer. In the winter, when the lake is frozen, you can ski right out for the best cross country skiing imaginable. You can build a bonfire right on the beach and watch the stars at night.

"Lost Lodge" has a mooring just seventy-five feet from the shore, and the town boat ramp is just a half-mile north of the house. The City of Plattsburgh is 5 miles up the road and you can drive to downtown Montreal in exactly 1 hour. Whiteface Mountain and Lake Placid are also an hour away. Whether you're here spring, summer, fall or winter, you will be close to everything you might want to do; from swimming to skiing, from kayaking to snowmobiling.


The vaulted living area on the main level is an open plan, with plenty of room for entertaining. You'll marvel at the 14 foot vaulted ceiling and french doors overlooking the lake. You'll have a 60 inch Samsung LED Smart TV with DirecTV and video streaming for those nights when you just want to relax. There is a thermostatically controlled gas fireplace in the living room; no need to haul firewood in the winter. The second living area on the lake level also has its own gas fireplace, a 42 inch flat screen TV with hi-def cable service and a fully restored Kroeger quarter grand piano.


The main level kitchen is the envy of any gourmet chef: The refrigerator/freezer, convection oven, dishwasher and range-top are all stainless steel Kitchen Aid Architect Series. The 33-bottle wine cooler is GE Profile. The stackable Washer/Dryer in the hall is top-of-the-line Frigidaire. The second kitchen on the lake level is also fully equipped, with a full complement of appliances including separate Washer/Dryer, and a dining table that will seat up to six.


Each of the four bedrooms is a master suite, with its own in-suite private bathroom; no one will have to dress to get to their own bathroom. The first master bedroom has a newly-installed king-sized Tempurpedic bed and 50" Smart TV. The second master bedroom faces the lake, with a queen-sized Tempurpedic bed and 38" Smart TV. The third master bedroom also faces the lake, with a queen-sized Tempurpedic bed and 38" Smart TV. The fourth master bedroom has two twin beds and a 32" flat screen TV with built-in DVD player.

About Chris Santry

My wife Sharon comes originally from Montreal, and I'm from Long Island. We settled in the New York Metro area but have been coming up here for many years to visit Sharon's family. We now run a vacation rental business in Key West with about 100 vacation homes, and use this home in the Spring and Fall.

Chris Santry purchased this house in 2005

Why Chris Santry chose Plattsburgh

Sharon always wanted a home on Lake Champlain. When we purchased this home, we thought we would be spending summers here ourselves, but ironically, our vacation rental business in Key West has grown so much, we have been unable to spend much time up here. We decided to offer the home for vacation rental during the summer. We still make it up here in spring and fall.

Lost Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lost Lodge for a week in August and it was an amazing trip. It was our first family vacation with all three of our grandchildren, 6 adults 2 toddlers and a 6 year old. Also, 2 dogs !The house and property is beautiful and we were so comfortable. Just needed to shop for food. The description of the property on Homeaway is on point and we were not disappointed at all, in fact we are planning on going back next year. We had kayaks and SUP delivered to the house for the week, made smores by the fire pit on the beach. We also rented a pontoon boat and picnicked over at Valcour Island.

Also, Terri the property manager was very helpful when we needed !

Thank you Chris & Sharon for your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Lisa- we're so happy you enjoyed your stay. We can't spend as much time there as we would like, so it's great to hear that another family has enjoyed our home. It's the perfect place for three generations of a family (and dogs) to just be together!

Strongly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our lake house visit here! Beautiful views. Lots of room for extended family or multiple families traveling together. We could spread out and relax, inside and outside the house. The main kitchen/living area is very nice and the extra family room/kitchen/laundry downstairs was a great bonus. The house is exceedingly well appointed, with anything you may need. Chris and Terri (the local manager) were very responsive and helpful.

Great Property with Beautiful, Scenic Views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a family of 3 couples and 2 children. The home is very nicely, but also comfortably decorated with plenty of room for 8 guests. We love the convenience of having a separate, attached bathroom for each bedroom. And the views were gorgeous. We had a great stay in a secluded lake home, but with all the amenities and comfort of modern technology.

The only thing that I would caution other guests about that have never stayed in a lake house is that when water levels and water tables are high, the well may have a lot of silt in it (which cause the water to appear light brown when coming from the tap). There was filtered water available through the fridge, but I would recommend bringing your own drinking water.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay and the housekeeper, Terri, was a true delight and very helpful with all our questions and needs.

Owner's Response: Jennifer- We are very happy that you enjoyed our home, its amenities and the setting. We're so sorry about the appearance of the water. We do have a very sophisticated water filtration system installed, and this is the first time the high water table overwhelmed that system. You'll be glad to know that we have asked that Terri provide bottled water for our guests' use, just in case this happens again sometime in the future.

Beautiful home and an outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a terrific stay at Lost Lake Lodge. The picture on the website are very accurate, but when you arrive you truly understand the attention to detail that the owners have put into this property.

We were attending a wedding at the Valcour Conference Center, two minutes away from the lodge. We were also celebrating our own anniversary that weekend. I contacted a personal chef, PanLov, and they created a sumptuous meal for ten and we enjoyed our celebration 'al Fresco' overlooking the beautiful lake. The two kitchens allowed the chef's to prepare the meal without interrupting

the family.

The lodge is spacious and well maintained. I would highly recommend this place for a large family or some close friends.

Thanks Chris & Sharon for sharing your home with us.

Thanks Terri for all of your assistance

Great house for all famimlies

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Lost Lodge and it was even better than the first. Chris and Sharon have not spared any expense with top of the line appliances, easy to follow instructions and of course, easy access to the lake. There is nothing better than having your morning coffee while sitting on the back deck looking at the boats in the water. Too much sun? No worries as a push of a button brings down the automatic awning. Of course, it's a quick trip to the ferry to Burlington, 1/2 hour to the Canadian border, less than an hour to Lake Placid. Grocery stores, shopping mall and restaurants are 15 minutes away in Plattsburgh. It easily sleeps 8 people with an upstairs and downstairs kitchen. Premium movie channels, gas fireplaces and even a piano help put a good end to a relaxing day. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Nothing gives us greater pleasure that to know that our home has made a family's stay enjoyable. That is our most important goal in making Lost Lodge available for vacation rental.
