About Scott and Linda Leidner

Loon Landing is a charming, year round lakeshore home nestled on the shores of Lake Champlain. As a family treasure for over thirty years, many of the furnishings in the house include antique heirlooms that reflect our roots and heritage. Whether enjoying your morning coffee, an afternoon of reading, nature viewing, or an evening drink, the lake shore deck can provide countless hours of relaxing pleasure and invaluable memories.

Why Scott and Linda Leidner chose Lake Champlain

Lake Champlain is a summer paradise, popular with sailors, power boaters, and fishermen alike. This Adirondack Coastal waterway offers 123 miles of navigational opportunities to the north and south, as well as western exploration into numerous island coves, and bays of Vermont. Lake Champlain is a world class Bass fishery with a variety of other fish species to entice visiting anglers.

Loon Landing is located within several miles of two state boat launches and is within close proximity to Point au Roche State Park, a popular nature-viewing spot with hundreds of acres of hiking trails. Several marinas are nearby, as well.

With breathtaking views of the Green Mountains, and the Adirondack Park a short thirty minute drive away, Loon Landing is the perfect year round vacation retreat for outdoor enthusiasts. The spring and fall seasons provide their own beautiful backdrops for a restful vacation at Loon Landing. For those who enjoy winter activities, ski areas, snowmobile trails, and hiking trails are a short drive away. Montreal, Lake Placid, and Burlington are all within approximately a one hour drive from the house.

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Waking up every morning to the spectacular lake view and sunrise was fabulous. We spent time each day on the lake and the back deck overlooking the lake. The house was furnished with everything you could need. We had family over on a rainy day and there was ample room both inside and outside with the awning protecting us from the rain. It was quiet and peaceful. We will definitely return to Loon Landing.

Last Minute trip

  • 5 of 5

Was woken up at 6:30 am on the Sunday we were supposed to leave for a family vacation to find out it had to be cancelled at the very last minute. Found Loon Landing at 10 am and after talking with Linda and Scott we were on our way by noon. Traveling with three young children (8, 5, and 22 months) is intense, but traveling six hours to a spot without any previous info magnified this. We could not have been more pleased, the house was exactly what we needed!!! It has everything that one could possibly want on a week long getaway to relax. The house and views off of the deck were outstanding, and the surrounding areas were beautiful as well. Even after six days my kids didn't want to leave and neither did my wife or myself. We definitely plan on coming back to Loon Landing in the future and sharing the experience with our family and friends.

The right vacation choice!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled into the driveway, we were blown away by the house, the view, and the level of care our hosts took to make our stay at Loon Landing terrific. The house is spacious and beautifully furnished -- from the antiques in every room to the fully-equipped kitchen. We spent most of our week on the deck, which feels as if it extends over the lake. It's just stunning. There were herons and loons on "Lake TV" almost all the time, and the super-comfortable seating, tables, and grill on the deck meant that every meal, the occasional snooze, a great book, long talks, and champagne all felt perfect. There are big trees shading part of the deck, and clear views of the Green Mountains. It's really spectacular. Cooking in the organized kitchen is easy, and even when it rains, all the rooms are spacious and there are tons of windows so the gorgeous view is always in sight. We found the surrounding area to be limited in terms of food options - though we are food snobs, for sure - but we enjoyed breakfast at Conroy's Organics, where we shopped for local cheese, meat, and a few other groceries. We rented kayaks from Tiny Boat Rentals in Plattsburgh, and they delivered two kayaks, paddles, and PFD's to us for the week at a really reasonable cost. One chilly morning we turned on the heater, and the house was cozy almost immediately. This is a warm, comfortable, well-equipped home. We felt completely relaxed and pampered.

Our hosts Linda and Scott were friendly, helpful, and accessible when we needed them, but they never hovered. Before we arrived, the rental rate felt like a lot of money for a week of vacation. We were wrong. It was more than worth it, and we absolutely plan to return. The Leidners have made Loon Landing a perfect vacation spot, and I am so glad and happy to know we can come back another year.

Holiday at Loon Landing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Loon Landing. Spending Thanksgiving there with family and friends was so memorable and a good time was had by all. Evenings were spent relaxing by the gas fireplace reading while other family members watched football. Winter is just as beautiful as the summer, the lake is just breathtaking with the surrounding snow! Thank you so much Scott and Linda for letting us share your house again! Looking forward to a third time.

An Autumn Sojourn

  • 5 of 5

Even a bad head cold that came on en route, and a nasty low pressure system moving up the East Coast creating a strong easterly flow off the lake could not dispel having the relaxing solitude and beauty that we sought when we booked our reservation. Loon Landing, itself is every bit the beautiful place others have eloquently described. Scott and Linda, with their description and colorful photographs have captured the place's character, as well. But it should be noted, too, that this northeastern corner of New York State with its proximity to the Adirondacks (we had a lovely drive up the St. Lawrence via U.S. 11 to Malone, then down NY Rte. 30 to Paul Smith's College, on to Saranac Lake then back to Loon Ldg. via NY 3), Vermont (we drove to Burlington for another day using I-87 down and VT Rte 2 back via S. Hero, N. Hero and Grand Isle). Forgot our passports otherwise would have also visited nearby Montreal for a bit of international flavor. The choice of restaurants in nearby Plattsburgh while not terribly varied, we found to be adequate and enjoyable. After a very busy summer with company and a major road project we were looking for rest, books, classical music listening, and a bit of new country. Loon Landing and environs was the perfect place for it all.

Une semaine près du lac Champlain

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été bien reçu par Linda et Scott. La maison est grande et la vue est exceptionnelle. Nous avons beaucoup aimé la possibilité de manger dehors, dans la salle à manger ou dans la véranda (surtout avec les enfants!). Le terrain nous à permis de jouer avec les enfants dehors de faire des feux et de descendre relaxer sur le bord du lac. C'est un endroit exceptionnel pour le vélo aussi, il est facile d'aller au parc Pointe Au Roche pour passer la journée à la plage et revenir sans problèmes. Une rampe de mise à l'eau (parfaite, double et gratuite) est située à moins de 1 km de la maison. Nous avons eu beaucoup de plaisir!
