About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our 3 bedroom air conditioned summer cottage is situated on Lake Champlain in Westport, NY, looking out across the lake to the Green Mountains in Vermont. It is a spot for unwinding and enjoying the water and the woods and the mountains

The master bedroom has a queen size bed, and view of the lake.

The second bedroom with a view of the lake, has 2 twin beds, & a half bath. (toilet and sink)

The third bedroom is best for children and has 2 twin beds a and a partial view of the lake.

The main bath has a large vanity, 2 cabinets, toilet and a tub and shower.

We provide 1 set of bed linens for each bed and a set of towels per person. Please bring Beach Towels and/or any additional linens you require.

The living room/dining room with large picture window and 2 sky lights, has a stone fireplace. A sideboard w/ board games for the winding down time. Good collection of books in the little hallway between bedrooms.

The galley type kitchen has ample cabinets, full refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, toaster oven, blender, pots & pans and dishes, glasses and a good size pantry next to the broom closet. There is a washer and dryer in an enclosed area on the porch outside the kitchen.

We have a beautiful patio overlooking the lake with table and gas grill.

The grass lawn is shaded by a picture perfect Maple Tree with a hammock between it and a large birch. Lawn chairs provided where you can lounge and enjoy the variety of water fowl and jumping fish. (Watch the daily flight of the Heron)

The four foot stone wall has large steps with railing which leads down to 100 feet of private sandy beach with gradual drop off. Swim float, row boat and canoe are available for your pleasure and for fishing

About a mile walk/drive to village for breakfast, ice cream, lunch, or dinner. The town of Westport is one of the most charming towns in the area with a park, beach and boat launch. Weekly entertainment for whole family.

Depot Theatre has live professional plays all summer. Golf in town. The Marina will rent most water equipment and has good food and weekend live music. Lots of hiking in the area and many attractions nearby.

It is a short drive to Essex ferry to Vermont, or drive south to the New Champlain Bridge at Crown Point.

About Eileen & Phil Knowles

Phil has spent summers here since he was a child. His family have been the only owners. He has enjoyed and maintained the house over the years. Phil's family has been part of the local history and one can watch a video at the visitors' center in which he and a few others talk about this history. Our family uses the house part of the year and we share it with visitors at times.

A beautiful lakeside experience

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in your home. Everything we needed was provided. The house is well maintained and equipped. The lake front and the sunrises were exceptional. We enjoyed Westport so much that we are planning to make that area our first choice when we travel from home. What a treasure this small township provides . Your home was wonderful.
