"If you're looking for a secluded and tranquil location just steps from Lake Champlain, yet within a short driving distance of numerous activities and places of interest, then this is your vacation spot. Deep in the woods, and right on the lake, you'll find this spacious and comfortable house with the most amazing porch and views. The house comfortably slept two adult couples - the kitchen was large and well-equipped, and the living room was inviting with a large stone fireplace (as another reviewer suggested, the pictures don't do this place justice). The house is private enough that you're unlikely to see neighbors unless you venture out in the canoe, then you can get a view of the other homes nearby.
If you are looking for off-site activities, this location will also suit your needs. The town of Willsboro has several cute restaurants and shops and there are local hikes and places to kayak within a short distance. Essex is another lovely town just 20 minutes down the road and a place to access a ferry to take you across the lake to Vermont. There it is worth exploring Burlington and Shelburne, and their maple ice cream. On the New York side and heading west, Lake Placid and Saranac are within 45 minutes or so.
The owner was a pleasure to work with and offered fantastic tips and recommendations. We hope to come back to this place again in the future!"

"Our groups was smaller than the max - 6 adults and 3 young adults - so there was plenty of room for all of us and we loved it! Kitchen was well equipped, tons of comfy spots for sitting and reading - view of the lake from the hot tub - easy access to Main Street, Whiteface, cross country ski venues, etc. All in all, a perfect vacation destination. Hot tub was immaculate as was the house - great team in place."

"My family has been going here for 6 years and it still is one of the best areas to be. The cabin is a little hard to find because it is in the woods, but it's really enjoyable (especially with the loft). A bunch of great swimming holes, shops, restaurants, and so much more. It also spots family's with every specific need (nothing is in walking distance though). This is definitely a place to be on your retreat to Lake Placid!"

"We stayed this past July and had the best three days touring Old Forge. The nine of us were more than comfortable in this centrally located home. The house was very clean and had everything we could need. We like it so much we are booking again in July 2016."
