"The house is charming, the views are wonderful, the lake is delightful. Being a group of eight, we comfortably slept in the four bedrooms. Also there are several sofas in several common rooms (dining, living, playroom, etc.) The owner was available on-line helping with the speedy answers for our questions. Also the manual in the house and the sticky notes on the walls guided us in proper directions (lights, fans, stairs, etc.). There are a lot of stairs and thresholds in the house, we were careful to observe all.
The kitchen is well equipped, the grill is adequate, and we enjoyed the fire pit at the private beach. The town beach is not worth to waste your time, we enjoyed kayaking and swimming from our private beach. Two kayaks were provided by the owner, and our teenagers and their parents took turns kayaking.
Our family liked dining at Iris, the Chinese restaurants in Plattsburgh are not good, but the Himalayan restaurant was interesting.
Be sure to take a trip to Canada. Our drive to Montreal took 1 hr +, including the border control. (Need your passports, as driving licenses are not sufficient.) We loved Montreal; Burlington, VT is closer but much smaller and less interesting. In addition to the sightseeing (we took 3 hrs bus tour), Montreal shopping is advantageous. Lake Placid is another attraction in the area, being a site of two Winter Olympics
Overall, it was a nice vacation and a family reunion for the three generations of the family."
