This large Adirondack house is located on a bluff above Lake Champlain and has wonderful views of Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains of Vermont to the east.
The house was built in 1916 as the summer home of Ethel Dupont Barksdale and was later operated as the Stable Inn.
The main house accommodates a maximum of 15 people, including children. The house has three floors. The first floor includes: a living room, a dining room, a family room, a sun room, a large kitchen/butler's pantry, a laundry room, and a bedroom/bath suite. The second floor includes two one-bedroom suites and one two-bedroom suite. Each suite has its own full bathroom. There is also a bedroom with bunk beds. The third floor includes a dorm room with three beds and a bathroom.
There is also a two-story cottage on the property that can accommodate up to 7 people, including children. It includes a kitchen, living/dining room, and bathroom on the first floor and four small bedrooms and bath on the second floor. The cottage is available for rental in conjunction with the main house during the months of June and July.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are two brothers and a sister who purchased this house in 2012.
Why the Owner Chose Westport, NY, USA:
While we no longer live in New York state, we all have roots in New York and the Adirondacks. We grew up in New York state and two generations of Augusts attended camp in the Lake Placid area. We have spent many happy summers with our families in Westport, New York swimming and boating in the lake, hiking in the Adirondack mountains, and enjoying the 'laid-back' pace of this beautiful part of New York.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
This house is an ideal location for a family reunion. Located on Lake Champlain, the house sleeps 15 and the cottage, which also can be rented, sleeps up to 7. The house is located in the Adirondack State Park, a pristine 'six-million-acre civilized wilderness' that is 'larger than Yellowstone, Glacier, Grand Canyon, Great Smokies and Yosemite national parks combined. The Park is a haven for outdoor recreation. The lake is a perfect place for motorboats, sailboats, kayaks, canoes and paddle boarding; the Adirondack mountains have hundreds of miles of hiking trails. There are two local golf courses. At the many towns in the park, it is easy to find excellent local cuisine, and shop for antiques, art, and local crafts. All summer there are farmer's markets, art shows, and theater and music 'happenings'.
