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!!
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.

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!
