The Lake Champlain House (LCH) is centrally located to Montreal, the Adirondacks/Lake Placid Region, and Burlington, Vermont. The Rouses Point/Vermont Bridge and close proximity to Interstate 87 make all three destinations a quick, easy car drive.

The Lake Champlain House sits on the outskirts of the scenic lakeside Village of Rouses Point, in the northeastern corner of New York. The LCH is located on the peninsula known as Point Au Fer, which is on the New York shore of Lake Champlain. It is an easy hour drive to Montreal, 45 minutes drive to the Adirondacks/Lake Placid, and 40 minute drive to Burlington, Vermont.

Lake Champlain (French: lac Champlain) is the sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States, located mainly within the borders of the United States (states of Vermont and New York) but partially situated across the US-Canada border in the Canadian province of Quebec.
