Come and share this little slice of heaven. We have a freshly updated and cozy bungelow with all the comforts of home plus a little extra. Our view of the lake is gorgeous to wake up to with a soft breeze coming through the windows. We have a 2 bedroom with queen size beds. We also have a big comfy couch in the living room that can easily be used as an extra place to sleep. Our kitchen is fully stocked with everything you may need to cook and be merry! We have 50 feet of lakefront with a great fire pit to cozy up around at night. There is also a dock available along with a mooring ball for those of u that would like to bring your boat. We have 2 kayaks, a dingy and a canoe with life jackets available for your use. It truly is an amazing place to be and I have no doubt you will agree☺️

About Darcy gilbo

Originally growing up on Lake Champlain We wanted a place to go back to from Boston in the summer months and for retirement. We were lucky enough to find this little gem!! We had the cottage completely renovated after buying it in 2004. It has become quite a place of happiness, peace, entertainment a place we never want to leave😍.

Darcy gilbo purchased this cottage in 2004

What makes this cottage unique

Montreal, and a ferry ride to Burlington Vermont. There is hiking, biking, golf, swimming, boating etc at your finger tips waiting for you to enjoy.

Lake Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time. So relaxing, but so fun, too! Very comfortable sleeping and everything you need in a cozy, beautiful cottage and setting. The beach area was fabulous. The kayaks were terrific. We brought a tube as well so all three of us could be on the lake at once. Had fun shopping at the local supermarket, going out to eat, making s'mores, hiking, biking, just relaxing and getting some great sun. Wish we had booked for a longer stay! Want to return again.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five with three children ages 8, 11, and 13 and Camp Never Leave was the perfect getaway for us. The house was exceptionally clean and had all we needed and allowed us to spend lots of time outside, even when it rained. Having the canoe and kayaks allowed us to explore most of Willsboro Bay. Finally, the fire pit was a highlight as we made s'mores each night by the Lake. The Marina is a few doors down and has great family food like burgers, fish and chips, and flatbreads. Here are a few highlights of our trip that might help others:

-Montreal Day trip - 2.5 hour drive, border crossing was fast after a check of the passports. We did a bike tour of Montreal that was excellent.

-Burlington Day trip - we parked at the ferry and took our bikes. Once there, we took the Bike Trail along Lake for a 16-mile (flat) ride. Finished the day with a stop at Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream.

-Lake Placid Day Trip - 1.5 Hour drive to the Olympic Center and Hockey Rink. We caught summer freestyle skiing and nordic ski jumping demonstration (yes summer, they land in pool or water drenched for latter jumping).

-Hiking - pick up a Lake Champlain Hiking Map, lots to do.

-Fishing - house had a great rod, but we brought some of our own. Stop by Willsboro Outdoor World to gather supplies and advice.

-Wading/Swimming - We took owners advice and made sure we had water shoes. The zebra mussels along water's edge can be sharp. Water felt great on hot days to swim.

The owner was very responsive and gave great advice ahead of the trip to make the most of our time. We packed plenty of clothes and didn't do laundry as laundromat at least 30 minutes away. Several small grocery stores nearby but if you need a larger store, nearest was in Plattsburgh. Cell service can be sporadic in the area but house had wi-fi and cable. We highly recommend the area and the cottage for a great place to get away.
