Beautiful home with so much to offer

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible! From the beautiful lake views to the everything you could possible need in a home. Our family of 9 & 2 pups enjoyed everything the house offered. The 6 bedroom areas and four baths made it easy for everyone to have somewhere to relax In peace. The kitchen has everything you need, the deck table was perfect for family meals and the fire pit made evenings fun for the family to gather around. Anne is delightful and if you are looking for a place to stay then this it!

The lakehouse was great! Everything was very clean and plenty of room for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! There was a big yard with a fire pit. We played volleyball, kayaked, canoed, fished and swam in the lake. Ausable Chasm was only 35 minutes away and was a great place to visit. We also went into Vermont for a shopping trip with our girls.

The lakehouse is big and charming and plenty of room for everyone. I loved the big commercial stove with the griddle top, it was great for making breakfast for our large group. Thanks Annie!!

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

It's not easy to find a lakeside rental with five or more bedrooms, so we were very glad to find this house in Westport, NY. The kitchen is well supplied. There's a generous side yard with a swing set and a fire pit. We made good use of the canoe. The house is well-maintained; the owner and staff are very helpful. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Vermonters with fishing licenses don't have to buy another one to fish on the New York side of Lake Champlain. We took side trips to Ausable Chasm and Fort Ticonderoga. Altogether a wonderful experience.

Perfect Family Tradition

  • 5 of 5

We have rented Lakeside for the past ten years for two weeks each time. It has been the perfect gathering place for extended family and friends. Beautiful setting, clean, spacious, the house and the property have something for everyone.The owners are available for questions, are friendly and accommodating. They keep the property fresh and upgraded whether by adding a new dock or a freshly painted room-it is fun to see the subtle, tasteful changes each year. The location is perfect! Westport affords easy access to out door fun- on the lake or in the mountains, yet a ferry ride or mountain drive can bring you to interesting cities of Burlington or Lake Placid. Local airports are convenient for people to fly in for a long weekend. Though there is so much to see and do in the area, this property is so delightful that once we arrive we tend not to leave. Vacationing at Lakeside is the highlight of our year.

Family Fun on Lake Champlain!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I were thrilled to find this large rustic lake house for our family reunion. We grew up on Lake Champlain, and our parents still live in the area, so it worked as the perfect spot! We had three generations in the house, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kids loved fishing off the dock, and we all enjoyed games of ping pong. It was wonderful for us all to be able to sit out on the large deck overlooking the beautiful lake. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed...plenty of dishes, glassware, pots and pans, and every conceivable utensil we could possibly need. We had three young boys with us, so having a washer and dryer there was such a bonus! The large kitchen/eating area was great for our big family meals, and the spacious family room was perfect for visiting and family game nights. We are already talking about next time!!

My favorite kind of place!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find the windows open and doors unlocked, how refreshing. The house has so much character which we love and enjoy. We appreciated the fact that this retreat has been much loved and used. The house is quite large and proud of itself. It has a camp-like feeling and natural but is most comfortable and well-equipped. The huge stove and griddle was the gathering place in the mornings for our family breakfasts. Such fun.

Fort Ticonderoga is a 45 minute drive south and provides a rich history of the area. Lake Placid, 1980 Olympics venue, is 45 minutes away and offers an array of bars, restaurants, activities and shopping. The Adirondacks offer great hiking opportunities while the Champlain Valley is one of my favorites areas for road biking. You can reach Burlington, Vt. by taking the Essex Charlotte ferry. This college city is a great place to dine, shop and enjoy performing arts.
