Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

Exclusive, very private, lakefront home situated ten feet from the water's edge. The house sits at the end of a half mile driveway on 275 feet of private lake frontage with six acres of privacy behind you. Built in 1905 as Kippewa Lodge, the house has been totally updated and remodeled yet remains true to the old Adirondack feel.

A towering stone fireplace dominates the two-story cathedral living room. Huge updated eat in kitchen, adjoins an equally large dining room with seating for 6. Enjoy the view from the large Adirondack covered porch with a spectacular view of the rolling mountains of Vermont and the Four Brothers by day and the lights of Burlington by night. Mattresses, bedding, dishes, all new. This is truly a one of a kind property.

Conveniently located one mile from the New York State boat launch ramp. Situated just south of Legonier point so the boats pass by a mile offshore, Unbelievably tranquil setting. You will understand why they chose this location in 1905 when they could have built anywhere. Additional Photos on request.

Perfectly located tranquil getaway

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a secluded and tranquil location just steps from Lake Champlain, yet within a short driving distance of numerous activities and places of interest, then this is your vacation spot. Deep in the woods, and right on the lake, you'll find this spacious and comfortable house with the most amazing porch and views. The house comfortably slept two adult couples - the kitchen was large and well-equipped, and the living room was inviting with a large stone fireplace (as another reviewer suggested, the pictures don't do this place justice). The house is private enough that you're unlikely to see neighbors unless you venture out in the canoe, then you can get a view of the other homes nearby.

If you are looking for off-site activities, this location will also suit your needs. The town of Willsboro has several cute restaurants and shops and there are local hikes and places to kayak within a short distance. Essex is another lovely town just 20 minutes down the road and a place to access a ferry to take you across the lake to Vermont. There it is worth exploring Burlington and Shelburne, and their maple ice cream. On the New York side and heading west, Lake Placid and Saranac are within 45 minutes or so.

The owner was a pleasure to work with and offered fantastic tips and recommendations. We hope to come back to this place again in the future!

beautiful, quiet retreat

This place is great! We stayed three nights - and could have stayed a month. A perfect place for a very quiet, relaxing vacation. I recommend it.

Ideal location, great home.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed our 3rd stay at this home and will definitely be back again. The drive through the woods up to the lake house frames your arrival with the quintessential Northwoods vista -- tall pines line the winding driveway which opens up to expansive views of Lake Champlain and the rustic lake home. The location allows for easy day trips to Burlington via the Lake Champlain ferry, hikes in the Adirondacks, and endless water activities straight off the back porch. The owner is a great resource for hikes, swimming holes, and local tips for activities. I definitely recommend this place for a family or group of friends who need to accommodate a variety of interests and needs.

Great Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place really is a hidden gem! So relaxing, right on the water.

There is plenty of space for 7 adults, I don't think the picture do justice.

Very close Plattsburgh, and the ferry rides over to Burlington.

If you are looking for some place to relax, hear nothing but nature and have a great view of lake Champlain, this is it!

From what I can tell from the emails, the owner seems to be a great guy, and responds to emails with plenty of detail.

Would definitely go back. Thanks!!!

Lovely, Secluded Lake House

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 teenage daughters & I spent several days in late June. The house is typical rustic lakehouse with a great view and location. Well-maintained and clean. It was our first trip to Lake Champlain/Adirondack area & this house was a perfect as a base for our explorations & a welcome sight on our daily return. Owner was easy to work with, very helpful & prompt. I highly recommend this rental.
