Lake Champlain Valley House Rental Photos and Description

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

In 2006, we undertook a total renovation of this lakeside home to do better justice to its gorgeous lakeside setting. First we gutted the interior and stripped the house right down to the studs. Then we replaced and rebuilt everything using the newest state-of-the-art materials and systems available.

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 a complete repaint of the house.

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.

"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 50 inch Samsung LED Smart TV with DirecTV 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. All four bedrooms have flat screen TV's. The first bedroom has a newly-installed king-sized Tempurpedic bed. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and the fourth bedroom has two twin beds. Two of the bedrooms have direct lake views.

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 Lake Champlain Valley

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.

Beautifual House Right on Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

Our group spent a week at this lovely house in the middle of July. The house is extremely comfortable, and big enough so that you don't feel like you're on top of each other. The bedrooms are all a good size, and each has a nicely appointed bathroom. The entire house is beautifully decorated and the kitchens are extremely well stocked with everything you'll need to prepare meals. We brought up our two large dogs and they loved the huge back lawn leading right into the lake. The grounds are nicely maintained, and the house was exceptionally clean when we arrived. This house is also very convenient for day trips to Burlington (we went to Ben & Jerry's too) and Montreal - both are about an hour. Ausable Chasm is right down the street and was breathtaking, and less than a mile away is a Marina where we rented a boat one day (we also noticed Kayak rentals, but we didn't do that). I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to spend a week or two at the lake. We hope to go back soon. Thanks Chris & Sharon!

Ideal for everyone

  • 5 of 5

There was something for everyone at the lost lodge. We were a group of 10...2 grandparents, 6 30 something's, and 2 toddlers. We all loved every minute. The place was clean, most well equipped, and able to comfortably accommodate all of us. There were 2 washing machines and dryers...although we were all too busy to worry about laundry! We swam, canoed, paddle boated, floated and dangled our toes in the quiet, clean, cool expansive lake. We spent hours down at the water just sitting with our grandsons while they played with rocks. There are 2 decks both lovely, and able to accommodate a large group. We called the upper deck the sunrise and the sunset deck as both times of the day displayed glistening water views. There are 2 bird feeders which attract colorful birds which adds to the leisurely feel there. The house was clean, well stocked (including books and puzzles) and very large. We gathered upstairs, but there is a downstairs living area if one wanted to get away from the bustle. There was so much to do outside the lodge including golf, but we honestly were having too much fun to go venturing. Some did make it to Montreal, and Burlington and other found a park for the kids, and a well stocked second hand library. The owners and manager were so helpful. We got the impression that their first priority was us having a great they wanted to share their home.

Very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

The home was as advertised. Very comfortable and well equipped (for Thanksgiving Day dinner in our case). The owners were helpful, and made it a very easy, hassle-free rental experience. There are two very distinct living areas (downstairs has a separate living room and kitchen), so it can work for two families/groups. Decorated with whimsy (airplane is a nice touch) to the delight of our 5 and 7 year olds. Only drawback is a location that's just far enough away from Burlington, Montreal and Lake Placid which makes venturing out a commitment to a short day trip (as opposed to just "going into town"). Upside is that you can take a day trip to Burlington, Montreal or Lake Placid very easily. Overall, very good experience.

A perfect week in a perfect house.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults spent a most wonderful week in Lost Lodge. This is one home that was even more beautiful than the pictures depicted. The interior and the grounds were immaculate with a kitchen that contained every appliance and spice that you'd ever need for cooking with and for a group. The great room was perfect in its comfort and views. Loved the retractable awning and high chairs on the deck which allowed you to chill in the evening or the heat of the day while taking in magnificent Lake Champlain. This house exceeded our expectations!

Owner's Response: We are constantly looking for ways that we can improve our home for our guests. This fall, we will be installing a King-sized Tempurpedic memory foam bed in the first master bedroom and a queen-sized Tempurpedic memory foam bed in the second master bedroom.

We are return visitors to the "Lost Lodge" and loved it even more this time! As a family, we rent lots of homes, and this is by far the cleanest, most well equipped, and tastefully decorated, to date. We loved the updates too, the outdoor dining table, the high chairs on the deck, and the new bar area. We rented a boat this time, but kept it at the dock about a half mile away, so convenient! We explored the lake and Valcour, tubed, and anchored and swam, so much fun! My most favorite part of the house itself is the kitchen, as we pride ourselves on preparing meals while we're away and 3 or 3 people could be in the kitchen cooking or prepping at the same time and it's not too tight. The area itself is so beautiful, aside from the winters, could see myself retiring there! Two of our twenty-something kids went to Montreal for the day, and another of us golfed at two different nearby courses and loved them. So much to do nearby! Love the beds in the house, so comfortable, and also the fact that each bedroom has an en suite - perfect!! I don't feel lost at the Lost Lodge - I feel at home! Can't wait to go back! Oh and being able to include my dogs - icing on the cake!

Owner's Response: We designed and built our home with use by a large family in mind. So, we are very happy to hear that our home and the attractions nearby have once again brought enjoyment to our guests.

2 Families in the Summer

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Lost Lodge for a week in the summer along with my sisters family. 4 parents with 4 kids all under 5 and we found the house absolutely perfect. It has so much space and the layout of the rooms means that you can have 2 seperate areas to keep your own space but a lovely large communal living area and deck for evening meals / BBQ's. All the bedrooms are lovely with so much detail put into their restoration. Bathrooms are great with 2 showers upstairs and a bath and shower in the ones downstairs. Don't take anything with you to the house as absolutely everything is provided and the kitchen is stocked to bursting point. Teri was great in getting high chairs and plates for the little kids and was really helpful when we arrived. Grab a pontoon boat from the Marina 1/2 mile down the road and go over to spend a day relaxing on Valcour island directly opposite the house, BBQ, sandy beaches warm water and cold beers, perfect! Would highly recommend.
