About Karen and Creston Billings
We purchased these homes in 2015 as our future retirement home. Currently we operate an 8 room bed and breakfast that is less than a mile from the home.. We are going on our 13th season operating the bed and breakfast and have now expanded to offering the lakeside houses as a vacation option for travelers coming to explore what our beautiful area has to offer.
Why Karen and Creston Billings chose Plattsburgh
This property sold us the minute we walked in. The views of the lake are breathtaking from every part of the living area. It's a home we look forward to retiring in.
What makes this Cottage unique
It's a unique property for a few reasons. One that it is less than a mile from our bed and breakfast and the other that it's one property with two homes on it with a small boat launch in between. The homes are located close to Mooney Bay Marina if you had a boat it's ideal. The homes have wonderful cedar hedge rows to provide the privacy from each other and also offer expansive views of Lake Champlain and the Vermont mountains. The last reason is that Point Au Roche State Park is next door and has over 800 acres of hiking trails.

Beautiful setting - wonderful cottage!
Amazing view - it is literally right on the lake! Lovely, beautifully appointed cottage, well equipped. A very special place - we enjoyed our stay very much. Karen was wonderful to work with - very prompt to reply & very helpful.
This cottage was perfect. It was well stocked and had an amazing view. Loved hanging out on the porch or back lawn with my dog enjoying the lake. Stock up- you won’t want to leave! Communication with the owners was great and easy. Would stay again.
This is a perfect little cottage for enjoying the lake and surrounding area. Our weather was perfect, fishing good, hiking and biking opportunities galore! Can't wait to return!
Karen thanks for providing your guest a great place to stay!

Comfortable, cozy cabin
Quaint quiet cottage with beautiful sunrises and moon beams shining on the lake at night. Close to walking trails that run along the lake shore. Sat on deck in morning with coffee and soaked in the fantastic view. Hope to return next year.
The cottage was well-equipped. Everything that I thought that I should bring I didn’t need to because it was already there. The sun rises in the morning are gorgeous. Our favorite part was sitting on the deck in the morning having a coffee and watching the boats. We also very much enjoyed throwing the tennis ball off the deck and watching the dogs play while we enjoyed a glass of wine. We were able to bring our pups with us and they felt comfortable in the yard and in the home because it has a hedge barrier between properties providing privacy. We travelled to Montreal a few days since you are only an hour away. We brought our boat and docked it in Mooney Bay Marina next door. Highly recommend - we will definitely be returning next year!!
