Plattsburgh house description

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.


THE SETTING...

'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.

Our home 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 TWO LIVING ROOMS...

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 TWO KITCHENS...

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.

THE FOUR MASTER BEDROOMS...

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. Three of the bedrooms have queen beds and the fourth bedroom has two twin beds. Two of the bedrooms have direct lake views.

                          Year Purchased: 2005

                          About: 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 55 homes, and use this home in the Spring and Fall.

                          Why Plattsburgh:
                          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.
