Property description

"Beau Overlook Cottage” is perched high upon the Boquet river banks in the Champlain coastal community of WILLSBORO, N.Y. - located just about opposite of Burlington, VT on LAKE CHAMPLAIN.

**** PLEASE ASK ABOUT 10 NITE MID-SUMMER SPECIAL FOR $1500. TOTAL**** -- the best deal anywhere (July 4th to July 14th) -- you will have time to really sink into the area, sightsee & relax too :-) Call today for this great offer!

From there you can take a short trip to the west to LAKE PLACID N.Y./ OLYMPIC VENUE, or to the east (fun trip on the ferry) to BURLINGTON, VT; or grab your passport and travel 1.5 hrs. north to MONTREAL CANADA.


*** IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GREAT LOGISTICS OF WILLSBORO ~ one visit & you will know why this is coming to be the ~ "destination spot" ~ for the sophisticated & discerning LOCAL, NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL traveler in the North Country

But this town is not just about its logistics ~ this area is a haven for some of the most talented & hardworking young organic farmers to be found anywhere. Just down the road is the well known “ESSEX FARM” where Mark & Kristen Kimball host several farm to table suppers through-out the summer months. (Kristin wrote the best selling book about their organic farm experience, called “THE DIRTY LIFE”). This same farm has been a launching pad for other young organic super stars in the making ~ several of them are right in the village of Willsboro. Their wares can be seen each week at the local farm markets. HARVEST HILL FARM & REBER ROCK farms are some of my favorites.

This coming summer 2016, all guests that stay at “BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE” for a full week will be given a set of ORGANIC FOOD TRADE COUPONS as a gift from us ~ they can be redeemed for fresh organic produce at any of three different locations in the area. We want you to experience some of the best that the area has to offer in terms of home grown goodness & then take the experience home with you.

We are all about supporting the endeavors of these young farmers & think they can make a real difference in the world we live in. COME BE PART OUR HEALTH FOR HUMANITY, while vacationing in the Dacks :)

With this short essay, you may start to get an idea why I always say that 'there is so much to do - or nothing at all at BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE'!

Car: Necessary

THE THING THAT YOU SHOULD DO: at least once while you are here, (if you are of average fitness or better) is HIKE TO THE TOP OF RATTLESNAKE MOUNTAIN! The trail access for this 'local natural wonder' is just a tad more than 3 miles up Rte. 22 N -- opposite the sign for Long Pond Cabins. Gather your gear & a good set of hiking shoes and set out for an adventure to remember. This past fall, my husband & I ventured out with our pack and made it to the top in 45 minutes. What a site to behold from the top -- the Willsboro Bay & the Point in the foreground with Lake Champlain (dotted with the Four Brother Islands), set-off by the Vermont Green Mt. to the eastern horizon AND from the other side, a great view of Long Pond, snaking towards the High Peaks for a beautiful, late afternoon westerly view!!! You should take a half a day, pack a meal -- PLEASE DON'T forget your camera. Once you get to the top, you will be greeted by an area where quite a few natural artists have done their various stone stacking interpretations. Some are quite creative & intricate -- you may want to make your own contribution to this obviously INSPIRATIONAL VIEW!

Aside from the fact that Willsboro has such an abundance of fresh water access -- you can hardly beat the thrill of the view from the top of RATTLESNAKE MOUNTAIN!

Let me know what you think of it after you make your ascension -- I am still trying to plot my 'full moon night time view' in the future :-)

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: As you can see from my photo, we are definitely animal lovers - or should I say - they definitely love us! I love poking fun at myself & the world around me; as I know that we only go around once. So 'CARPE DIEM' - animals live in the moment, and those are some of the best lessons that I learn from them every day.

Why the Owner Chose Willsboro, NY, USA:
Our son & his family live just on the other side of the pond (Lake Champlain). They have a farm in Vermont, near Mt. Mansfield. Five years ago, they had a set of twins and that was it for me.....I was not going to be kept down in the Flatlands any longer! We have traveled this area upside down & inside out for more than 30 years; and now it was our turn to enjoy the North Country whenever it suited us. Being closer to the grandchildren was paramount to my happiness. The Willsboro area puts me in unique position to be able to commute back & forth from the mid-Atlantic region in a reasonable amount of time, yet I still feel tucked away in this friendly little village. It gives me the best of both worlds. Close enough to get away from the fast lane easily enough; yet a world away (which is the way that I like it)!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Willsboro is small; but offers so much natural beauty, that I can hardly put a proper description of it into words. This town has great LOGISTICS to so many other areas (Burlington, Lake Placid, Plattsburgh, Charlotte etc.) -- which makes it easy to get to most places that I would want to go, easily. The village itself provides a wide diversity of beautiful scenery & outdoor activities to enjoy. Having been a 'city girl', this village offers me a 'laid back' pace with no traffic lights :-) -- while still being close enough that it only take a minute to get to the post office; or go pick up a gallon of milk at the local grocer. PLEASE READ: OTHER ATTRACTIONS & ACTIVITIES blurb (just above the OWNERS INFO. SECTION) . In fact, I still have trouble fitting everything in that I want to see & do before the sun sets, each day that I am lucky enough to be there --- but then when night does fall, and the stars & moonlight start dancing on the river below -- watch out -- because that is one great view! On any given day, all I need do is grab my hiking stick and set out for a riverside hike along the lovely Boquet, which winds out to the mouth of Lake Champlain, two miles downstream; or jump in my car and take a 'Sunday afternoon drive' around this picturesque water community. I always come back to the cottage feeling refreshed & satisfied, that I have taken in some of MOTHER NATURE'S FINEST! Having traveled extensively and been a commercial photographer for more than 30 years, this area just does "it" for me! Give it a chance and it may well suit your taste buds for natural beauty also!
