"This is a warm, friendly house with a great open floor plan. The upstairs bedroom has awesome bunk beds for the kids and the downstairs bed rooms are clean and comfortable. A highlight is the large central fireplace that we used every night. The house is removed from the main road (route 9) by a long, narrow driveway, giving it a real secluded feel. A small grassy backyard leads to the beach which has nice, deep sand, great for kids (and adults). Lots of beach/water toys, all the buckets, shovels, and assorted sand gear. The water is clear and shallow, mostly sandy/muddy and good for swimming. Other than getting a bit shallow it's a great spot to pull up boats and park at the dock or on the beach. Huge screened in porch and the outdoor shower is awesome. I took most of my showers out there. The kitchen is mostly new and decently appointed, though there is very little in the way of glassware (only 2 actual glasses in whole house - the rest is various kinds of plastic), but everything you need for general family food and drink. The owners are cool people, accessible and responsive, and overall I would highly recommend this place. We would like to come back again."

Wonderful vacation cottage on Willsboro Bay/Lake Champlain
"This was one of the most pleasant vacation cottages I have ever rented. The size is perfect for 2 to 6 people and it is extremely clean and comfortable in every way. The kitchen has everything you need for preparing great meals, the living room is very homey and there is a great view of the lake from almost every room of the cottage. I appreciated having cable TV, internet and good cell phone reception. The bathroom is modern with a wonderful shower and the beds are extremely comfortable. The house is located right on the shore of Willsboro Bay and has an amazing view north into Lake Champlain and a view west so you can see the Metroliner snake through the mountains on its way to Montreal. The dock is great for boating but it's also wonderful for pulling out at chair and reading a good book or just watching the light change over the water. Swimming is excellent here because the bottom is sandy and the water very clear. Also, it's protected because speed boats do not come into the area except to dock. The town of Willsboro is fairly quiet, but very pretty and has a variety of very accessible activities - a lovely 9 hole golf course, well-maintained public tennis courts and nearby hiking. There are two market/gas stations close by with all the necessities and excellent meat counters, so you don't have to go far for groceries. The two close-by marinas have restaurants, so dining out is convenient. Bicycling is perfect along Corlear Drive because it's fairly flat with very little car traffic. The owner was very personable, responsive and very pleasant to work with. What more can I say? I can't wait for next summer!"

"Jack's Rock Cottage is a great old Adirondack place to stay with wonderful views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont. You can sit in the house, on the deck, in the yard, or walk down to the lake and enjoy the views. House has plenty of bedroom and kitchen space. It also has three bathroom areas which is unusual for a house of this age. It was clean when we arrived and is maintained. Its location near the Essex Ferry makes it easy to visit Vermont or drive to anywhere in the high peaks region of New York. Owners are easy to work with and very helpful. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area and understands this is a property built long ago but still has modern conveniences like a washer and dryer."

"My multi-generational family used this well-appointed cottage to explore northern Vermont and the Lake Champlain Valley and the High Peaks of the Adirondacks. The location is stellar. Incredible lake views fill nearly every window. The cottage itself is beautifully designed and decorated. In addition we loved the kitchen and grill. We shared several delicious family meals on the deck. The deck was also a fun vantage point to watch members of our group kayak for the first time. The owners have created a welcoming lake cottage and helped to assure a delightful week on the lake for my family."
