About the property

Beautiful Views With Direct Private Sandy Beach At Your Doorstep

Enjoy rare westerly views from the calm Lake Champlain bay near Willsboro Point in upstate New York. This hidden gem features over 200 feet of your own private sandy beachfront in your backyard. Have fun swimming, boating, fishing and time with family and friends at this private location. The lake house has an expansive screened porch overlooking the lawn and lake right off the open living room and kitchen area. Enjoy meals out on the screened porch as well as games in the large sitting area. The house has a nice and refreshingly bright and airy feel.

The grounds not only feature your own private sandy beach, but a large lawn to play games like bocce, volleyball, or even a corn hole tournament to make things interesting. The dock allows better access to the lake for fishing. Right around the corner is the local boat launch where you can launch your boat. Your own private mooring is available for use.

If you have a boat, a great place to go for a picnic is Schuyler Island, Willsboro Bay Marina's Upper Deck, or Indian Bay Marina restaurant and bar is just a short 5 minute boat ride. Other places to visit in the hamlet of Willsboro are Ethel's Dew Drop Inn, which you'll pass on your way to the cottage. Also, the Turtle Island cafe serves some wonderful fare that is locally farm grown and raised. Check Trip Advisor for more food options.

By the way, the quaint and historic village of Essex, NY with access to the ferry to Vermont is just a few short miles way. Lake Placid is a leisurely one hour drive through the picturesque Adirondack mountains. Burlington, VT is an hour and 20 minutes including a scenic ferry ride to Vermont. Essex, NY is 19 minutes away where you can enjoy a stroll through local shops and see historic buildings.

Four (4) Kayaks and one (1) rowboat available for use (with signed waiver).

About Owner / Property Manager

I'm a native of the Adirondacks, who has fond memories of growing up in the area.

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Willsboro

The lake house caught my eye with it's rare Lake Champlain sandy beach access, privacy, and perfect location to the Adirondacks, Vermont, and I87.

What makes this house unique

It has the calmness of a small lake with the access to over 570 miles of shoreline available with a large lake. Boat to Vermont, Canada, or several islands.

Everything about this cabin was exactly what our family was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This private, end of the road cabin was the epitome of a relaxing experience on the lake. The kayaks were used daily, the rowboat helped to land a large mouth bass by my young nephew, and the views were simply serene. We couldn’t be more grateful for the memories and laughs we all shared, and will certainly consider going back again! We loved every moment of the last 7 days! Thank you, thank you for this wonderful family vacation!

Private, beautiful and comforting place to spend time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed several days of relaxation at this beautiful, vintage cabin. The private beach, dock and fire pit were our favorite! Plus, we fell in love with the gorgeous back porch (fully screened in)! We ate every meal out there and played many board games. Our young girls enjoyed learning to kayak and had fun jumping and swimming around the dock. The water is quite shallow for a long ways. So, it was perfect for our 5 and 7 year old girls. We would absolutely recommend to any other young family looking for a cozy get away!

Wonderful cottage with all the right necessities. Owner was very responsive and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

Kayaks were a huge hit by old and young. Ausable Chasm was only 15 minutes away and was amazing. Lake Placid was a 45 min ride with beautiful scenery and a lot to do.

Wonderfully relaxing getaway on Willsboro Point

  • 5 of 5

We loved our summertime stay at this cottage. The kayak and rowboat were a daily activity for our entire family. Evenings on the porch with a fresh breeze and quiet evenings of restful sleep. Very conveniently located to the quaint downtown of Willsboro, hiking trails in the Adirondacks, and the ferry to Vermont. The property has everything that we could need: comfortable beds, clean house, fully stocked kitchen, and the lakefront. Thank you for opening your property to others! Only very minor suggestions is to provide a lighter or matches for the grill (ignitor not functioning) and fire pit.

Beautiful Location, Cottage was better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Great Vacation at a great location! This was our first vacation on Lake Champlain but it will not be our last. Cottage was great especially the enclosed porch with a great view of the bay and mountains. Cottage was well equipped, we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. I do have one suggestion, a beach wagon would be a great help in transport belongings from the parking lot to the cottage.
