Plattsburgh cottage description

Heron Ledge Cottages are nestled on the shore of Lake Champlain across from historic Valcour Island. The cottage shown on this listing is known as 'Pine Cottage'. It is closest to the water and has the 'best porch' on the property. This cottage compound is ideal for quiet stays, romantic getaways and nature-filled family vacations. The lake is situated between the NY Adirondack and the VT Green Mountains. We are very close to Snug Harbor Marina - Lake Champlain Boatworks and the NYS Peru Boat Launch. The cottage is freshly furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen. Cable TV, DVD player, linens and wireless internet are provided. Opportunities for sight-seeing and sport activities abound. We have hosted bass tournament winners. Stay for a week or get-away weekend (3 night minimum stays with higher nightly rates for shorter stays). This is a non-smoking property. NO pets are allowed. WEEK-LONG RENTALS ARE PREFERRED IN SUMMER.


Nearby activities: 3 golf courses; Ausable Chasm; Ferry to Vermont; Shelburne Museum; Ben and Jerry's; Vermont Teddy Bear Factory; Montreal, Canada; Skiing and Rock/Ice Climbing, Adirondack High Peaks; Hiking, Bicycling, Kayaking, Autumn leaf-peeping and fun at the site of two Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, NY.


Bass Tournament Hosts: Bass fishermen like the property because their equipment is kept private and safe. Bass boats can be attached to power and worked on under spot lights after dark if needed. One winning fisherman said that he liked the quiet so that he could concentrate better on his fishing gear and strategy.

Skiing: We are a 45 minute easy drive to Whiteface Mountain. Ski mountains in Vermont and Canada are about 2 hours away.
Cross-country skiing can be done near our property, on Lake Champlain when it is frozen, or at cross-country ski centers
in Lake Placid.

Hiking and Bicycling: People love to go to the different Adirondack High Peaks and then return to lakeside after the hikes.
Others bicycle all around the NY area near us, with some taking their bikes on the ferries to Vermont Islands or mainland
and returning via a different ferry later in the day.

              Manager info

              Why Plattsburgh:
              In their childhoods, owners Phoebe and Bruce were both fortunate to stay on lakes, small and large, in housekeeping cottages. We found this unique property and saw it as a way to preserve the 'old-fashioned', simple-pleasures vacation. Because their home is also here, they can live it and share it!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Direct access to Lake Champlain with a sandy beach. Across the street from the Kayak Shack which offers lessons, hourly or daily rentals and other tours and facilities. Please tell them that you are staying at Heron Ledge Cottages for additional customer service. Guests with boats on trailers may park them in a secluded lawn area and put the boats in and out of the water at the very nearby Peru NYS Boat Launch, which has a new dock (2014) and a great parking area. OR, the guests may choose to rent a slip next door at Lake Champlain Boatworks (Snug Harbour Marina) and just walk over each day. Those with friends and family in the area are encouraged to invite them for day visits with additional parking available on the lawn next to the driveway.
