Charming lakeside cottage in Westport
As you drive down the local road to the property, you see the shimmering water of Lake Champlain in front of you. This charming cottage has been in the family for some time, evident by reviewing the family history in the small library off the living area. Interesting pieces of artwork adorn the walls, a story to be told on each piece you set your eyes upon.
The greatest masterpiece is the pallet of Lake Champlain before you, delighting your senses at every point of view.
As with any lakefront home, you want to spend most of your time outside. Ample outdoor seating areas are available on the deck, the lawn and beautiful beach area.
This rental provides plenty of sleeping space, with one double bed upstairs; the remaining bedrooms have twin beds. There is a master suite on the first floor, with two twin beds.
Having family in Westport, I am very familiar with the town and area. This is a fantastic piece of the Adirondacks, with Vermont a short car ride or ferry ride away.
The home is well-worn however that lends to its charm. If you want to experience the Adirondacks from a centrally-located, generations-old cottage, this is the place for you.
Great Lake Experience
Our family group really enjoyed our time here.
Charming, roomy, airy with great lake views from all over house.. Quiet area. Fairly good access to lake-steep stairs that might be a little challenging for very young, very old or less mobile, but nice sand beach a real plus on relatively protected Westport Bay.
Issues were minor with some out of control of owner.
Upstairs bedrooms were hot, but it was an unusually hot, humid stretch for Adirondacks at night which usually cools off more.
Might consider small air conditioners in upper bedrooms for those nights it's still, hot and hard to sleep. Some beds themselves not great, uncomfortable.
House was not all that clean when we moved in, so we cleaned up a bit ourselves right off. Grill was filthy and unusable until scoured out well.
The positives way outweigh the negatives with this charming, old school, Adirondack Lake home (and it's a great area-admittedly I'm predjudiced since I grew up 10 miles away). We would definitely consider renting this again!
Beautiful weather, lovely property and village
Our family rented this property for Canadian Thanksgiving. The local real estate agent whose firm looks after the property, was very communicative and charming. The house is lovely, spacious and warm, and with a wonderful library. The leaves had begun turning colors, and the weather was wonderful. We enjoyed bonfires at the beach, hiking around town, and a visit to Fort Ticonderoga.
