About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

Recently built Lake House available for weekly & daily rentals. You’ll love all the modern amenities and open space of new construction in this waterfront home. We have a recently built large (12 x 14) outdoor covered cooking pavilion with both a grill for your burgers/steaks and dual burner outdoor stove for boiling lobsters/corn.

Invite the whole family to enjoy boating, swimming, fishing and just relaxing. You can enjoy sunrises over the Green Mountains of Vermont, breath taking views of Lake Champlain, sunsets over the Adirondacks, and evening campfires in the large family fire pit.

The Lake Champlain House or the 'Life is Good' house is located on the peninsula known as Point Au Fer, which is on New York's shore of Lake Champlain. It is an easy drive to Montreal, the Adirondacks/Lake Placid, and Burlington, Vermont.

The beautiful Lake Champlain House was newly constructed in 2008 with 100 feet of private shoreline and a private 70 foot dock. A large 20’ x 20’ deck with picnic tables, a covered cooking pavilian (gas grill and ourdoor burners), an key west style Boat Shack/deck and large lawn area for kids to play games. Plenty of Adirondack chairs, and a large family fire pit (with fire wood) for everyone to fit around and enjoy nightly campfires.

In the water your family can enjoy a swim float, a mooring for your boat, or any of the boats provided: 3 sit on top kayaks, 2 canoes, 1 paddle boat, and a aluminum row boat with oars.

Inside is a spacious kitchen/family room area with great views of the lake and mountains and a large fireplace. 4 bedrooms (can sleep up to 14 in real beds, see below) and a loft, 3 1/2 baths. All linens provided along with kitchen and bath towels. Central Air Conditioning so your family can sleep on those extremely hot, muggy summer nights.

The Champlain House will accommodate the following sixteen (16) guests:

· Master Bedroom 1- King Bed (sleeps 2)
· Master Bedroom 2- King Bed (sleeps 2)
· Guest Bedroom- King Bed(sleeps 2), with 2 Full Bunk Beds (sleeps 4)
· Fourth Bedroom- 2- Queen Bed (sleeps 4)

The Lake Champlain House (LCH) is centrally located to Montreal, the Adirondacks/Lake Placid Region, and Burlington, Vermont. The Rouses Point/Vermont Bridge and close proximity to Interstate 87 make all three destinations a quick, easy car drive.

The Lake Champlain House sits on the outskirts of the scenic lakeside Village of Rouses Point, in the northeastern corner of New York. The LCH is located on the peninsula known as Point Au Fer, which is on the New York shore of Lake Champlain. It is an easy hour drive to Montreal, 45 minutes drive to the Adirondacks/Lake Placid, and 40 minute drive to Burlington, Vermont.

Lake Champlain (French: lac Champlain) is the sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States, located mainly within the borders of the United States (states of Vermont and New York) but partially situated across the US-Canada border in the Canadian province of Quebec.
