Welcome to the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain! Our newly renovated (March 2017) open-concept home offers a cozy and relaxing atmosphere. All the comforts of home, along with a gas fireplace (coming in December) in the master bedroom and two complimentary sets of snow shoes await you. Located on historic Valcour Bay, we're only a stone's throw to beautiful fall/winter hiking as well as downhill/crosscountry skiing. Get ready to feed your soul, free your mind and fuel your adventure!!

The space

Our property sits on a private sandy beach along the historic shore of Valcour Bay. From the beach, you will capture breathtaking views of historic Valcour Island and its Bluff Point Lighthouse along with southerly views of the Green Mountains in Vermont. We are located within an hour's drive to numerous ski mountains such as Whiteface, Titus and Beartown Hill. If you are feeling extra adventurous, Smuggler's Notch and Stowe in Vermont are only 1-2 hours away. Fuel your adventure with cross country skiing and snow shoeing at our open parks, sledding at Fox Hill, ice skating and maybe even a winter hike on the icy lake if you are lucky! Ice fishing is also abundant if that is your passion and you happen to be here while the lake is frozen. At any time of the year, you can also enjoy various live performances, music, and/or exhibitions. Visit our downtown farmers market every Saturday and enjoy a farm to table meal in our fully equipped kitchen with an eat-in bar as well as dining for six. A patio area with an outdoor grill is also available. There are two private bedrooms, two full size baths and a pull-out sofa in the living room area. Feel the warmth and romance from a newly installed gas fireplace in the master bedroom (coming December 2017). A cozy sunroom with a breakfast table allows you to bring the outdoors in with views of a Japanese inspired garden in the back yard.


We are located 6 miles from the heart of Plattsburgh, on a private neighborhood road, and only 5 miles from Plattsburgh's International Airport. We are within walking distance to a marina, lakeside restaurant, and public boat launch. Bluff Point Golf Course and Adirondack Golf Course are each within 3 miles. SUNY Plattsburgh, historic Ausable Chasm and rafting, nature walks along our lake shores, a sledding hill, ice skating and shopping are all within 6-8 miles. Local breweries, wineries, dairy farms, apple orchards, cultural events and horseback riding are within a close radius less than 10 miles away. We are 15 miles from two Ferry Crossings that lead to Burlington, Vermont, 35 miles from Whiteface Mountain, 45 miles from Lake Placid, and 70 miles from Montreal, Canada. Though we do not accept pets, Adirondack Pet Lodge is an ideal place for your pets to play while you spend your days exploring.

Lovely spacious and clean house. Being a long weekend a little noisy on the lake and with mowers and cutters from the close by neighbors.

Response from Kelly:
Michael, You were a wonderful guest! I'm glad you enjoyed the house.!! Yes, being Memorial Day weekend and one of the first weekends without rain, everyone in our small neighborhood was eager to be outside doing their spring cleanup or playing on the lake. We welcome you back on a more still weekend!

Kelly’s place was wonderful, she left us zucchini bread on the counter. The house is warm and lovely. We spend some time on the beach and paddled a little even though it was chilly. Would definitely recommend Kelly’s place!

We loved staying at Kelly's place! Freshly baked zucchini bread awaited us along with freshly picked apples. Everything about the place said relax. It was a short walk to a sandy beach, where we enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets. Had we had another day, we definitely would have taken the kayaks out. Easy access to town.

Everything about Kelly’s place was perfect! The location is quiet and beautiful, the home itself is warm, impeccably decorated and clean, and there are little touches designed to create a “homey” vibe (but not so much that you feel like you’re in someone else’s space). Outdoor micro-environments were wonderful with a short walk down a pathway to the lake. It didn’t hurt this is October when foliage is starting to elevate the experience. All communications from Kelly were clear and welcoming. Would definitely stay again!

Thank you, Shannon. The September and October foliage makes our area one of the most beautiful!! Think of us again next time you are on our side of the lake... We'd love to have you back!!

Kelly's Plattsburgh lake house was perfect for us. It's modern, clean, comfortable, well-equipped and conveniently-located near everything we wanted to do and see during our 4-day visit to the Plattsburgh / Lake Placid areas. We had considered staying in a hotel, but as soon as we walked through the front door and saw the beautiful view out through the back toward the lake, were very glad we chose Kelly's house. It even smells great. If you're looking for an extra-nice, peaceful and reasonably-priced home to temporarily call home while staying in the Plattsburgh area, I highly recommend booking this one. You'll be glad you did, too!

Beautiful! Clean, well kept, great location. Kelly really puts a lot of effort into providing the comforts of home and it shows. Her small touches are impressive! Our family is already talking about going back again next year.

Great location with comfortable surroundings. We loved Kelly's gardens, they are so easy on the eyes. Many hiking, biking or kayaking opportunities or just sit on the beach and relax. We took in Ausable Chasm just down the road a few miles and greatly enjoyed the experience. Wonderful place. You'll enjoy it!

I am a Speech Pathologist currently working in an educational setting for special needs children. My husband is a financial advisor. Both he and I are natives to the Adirondack and Green Mountains, and cannot imagine being any other place. Together in our free time, we love to boat, bike, hike and/or ski. He is an avid golfer. I am a "Jaclyn of all trades". When we are not doing those things, we enjoy socializing with our friends, sitting by a warm fire and traveling to see our children in Boston and San Diego, where we appreciate finding the perfect airbnb!
