Why Dr brown chose Lake Champlain Valley

I have been waitng to buy this for years - it has the nicest view on the lake and is the last house on the 2 mile sand beach. We love to kite surf, body surf, swim and this is the best spot.

What makes this house unique

Wake up and run/ walk on a 2 mile beach at your footsteps. If you like to kite surf/ wind surf / boat / and enjoy the lake this is your spot. The store is just a hundred yards away in case you run out of anything.

Great location, lovely views, nice house

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Great view of the lake, good location near the state park beach, and a convenience store nearby, good sized living/kitchen areas with large windows looking out on the lake, and well-stocked house.

Only 2 cons: The lake level was high during our visit so there was no beach in front of the house. However we introduced ourselves to neighbors to the right with beachfront and they graciously allowed our kids to use their beachfront. The other was the lack of window coverings in the bedrooms makes it hard to sleep in past sunrise.

Early 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

After communicating with Tom we knew this was the place for our family. The house I grew up in was located a mile away. It was many years since I had been "home". I wanted to find a place that my family and I could enjoy Lake Champlain, Plattsburgh, our anniversary and our roots. This house was just perfect for all 9 of us. The kids had big plans that incl. Ausable Chasm, Whiteface Mt., Lake Placid, ferry to Vermont, Montreal, Kent Delord House, antiquing, winery, Alice Miner home, trout and bass fishing and canoeing. A bonus was the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Plattsburgh. The fireworks were visible from the deck!! We were all comfortable. The house was well stocked. All we needed was groceries. We all like cooking and the kitchen and grill were great. After a busy week with the kids and granddaughter my wife and I recouperated and enjoyed a quiet week with a great view. Just what I wanted for all of us. Thanks Tom. Nice working with you.

Excellent Lake Champlain waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This home is a recently renovated 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home overlooking the beach of Cumberland Bay in Plattsburgh New York. The beach is about 15 steps down. Our granddaughter loved the beach and the playground at the nearby State Park beach. Morning views were outstanding with coffee, the lake's mood new each day. Nice market 200 yards from house, and lots to do in Plattsburgh area, Adirondack area or by ferry to Vermont. Owner provides sheets and towels. Internet & TV. We'll be back.

The perfect lake vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

This place delivers all it promises - it is a classic (60's) house on a beautiful lake front location with an amazing view and has got all you need for a memorable family vacation. This will be one of those rentals which will be booked months in advance. We were lucky to be the 2nd guests in this house so it was still available. When you rent on VRBO you never know how responsive will the owner be to problems arising during your stay. I can say that Tom is an amazing host that took care of every small issue that came up - especially since we were amongst the first to stay in the house so small kinks were still being sorted out. The location is perfect - less than 15 min to the ferry to Vermont, 45 min to Whiteface mountain, and an hour to Montreal. Its a quiet beautiful lake and Point Au Roche is highly recommended. We were 2 families with 5 young kids and would definitely recommend this to families with small children, older travelers or couples. Tom, thank you very much for a memorable and beautiful summer vacation - I hope we can come back one day! Oh, and we got our deposit back via the automated system the day we left - another evidence to the honesty and hospitality of the owner.
