This fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bath, “vintage” home, built in 1877, has been restored to a state of the art vacation destination in the lovely village of Willsboro, New York. This picturesque coastal community lies at the foot of the Adirondack Park. Therefore, it benefits from having water frontage on Lake Champlain & also being part of the great Adirondack High Peaks region!
LOGISTICS are one of the strongest points of Willsboro N.Y., which lies just about opposite the city of Burlington, Vermont (on the eastern border of New York) when viewing a map of Lake Champlain. These areas are easily commuted via several ferries that run back & forth between them. Many people travel to the Burlington waterfront area via foot passenger, bike or auto (THE PORT KENT - BURLINGTON). The quaint & quick CHARLOTTE - ESSEX will ferry you safely to the SHELBURNE MUSEUM (a wonderful family day trip for young & old is only about 1/2 hour from the cottage), THE VERMONT TEDDY BEAR FACTORY or a host of other wonderful destination spots in the Green Mountain State. You may travel westward for adventures into the great HIGH PEAKS REGION of the ADIRONDACK PARK; OR, just stay put in the village area & enjoy all that the LAKE CHAMPLAIN area has to offer in terms of its inherent natural coastal beauty, which includes a peaceful; but well equipped village that has the sixth largest lake in the U.S., a scenic bay, a large pond and a clean river -- all within a few miles of one another.
The pace of life in Willsboro, NY is a picture post card view of life in the slower lane.
"THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO - OR NOTHING AT ALL"!
This artsy riverside cottage perched high on the Boquet river banks beckons all to come enjoy the view from the OVERLOOK PATIO. Equipped with comfy outdoor seating, fire pit, gas grill & umbrella, you need only yourself to lie & commune with the sounds of the river, as it makes its way downstream. Peaceful, relaxing & refreshing might be some words used to describe this wonderful scene. Get to know what DOING NOTHING feels like again!
The Boquet River, gently winds out to Lake Champlain at Noblewood Beach. There is a great spot to drop in a kayak or canoe (from just below the waterfalls), a few blocks downstream of the cottage.
Just a short walk down the street from the cottage (just before the falls), Willsboro hosts the world class, yet unpretentious TURTLE ISLAND CAFÉ . Be prepared to be dazzled with locally harvested, sustainable cuisine, offered up by the talented chef ~ owner, David Martin. Tthe ambiance, as well as the cuisine will keep you coming back for more!
If you are ready for some day trips (close to the area), then you may consider FORT TICONDEROGA, THE ADIRONDACK MUSEUM, THE AU SABLE FALL GORGE just to name a few, that all have something totally different to offer.
For the hikers, the HIGH PEAKS are just waiting for your next great adventure! One of the most well known is WHITE FACE , located in Wilmington NY - just about 35 minutes from the cottage.
In the spring, summer & fall you should hike it on a clear day. When you reach the summit, you can see all the way the Canada -- the view of LAKE PLACID won't disappoint you. Don't forget your camera!
Beyond the beautiful river view that can be enjoyed from most rooms in the house, the whimsical décor of the home, using top rate furnishings & fabrics would have to be one of the highlights of the cottage interior. You start to get a sense of it from the photos; but once you are there, you will note that the attention to detail put into the design of this home is amazing.
Talk about a “home away from home” - Beau Overlook has taken that idea to a whole new level.
The 1st floor has a master bedroom suite with full bath + washer & dryer. The ultra modern, fully equipped kitchen has a range with an induction cook top that brings water to boil in 60 seconds. In addition, there is convection / microwave oven over top of the range. Most spices, cooking oils etc. are stocked in the home & ready to use. A quick stop at the market to pick up your immediate supplies & you are ready to go.
The wireless internet is ready for all that need to stay on track with work while on their holiday; & the cable T.V. will provide a good variety of local television stations. The house is equipped with a whole house fan & there is also an air conditioner / dehumidifier that can be used when needed to provide comfort on the really muggy days.
The 2nd floor has 2 additional bedrooms with vaulted ceilings & paddle fans. The front bedroom with 2 twin size captain beds has been colorfully decorated with children in mind; & the back bedroom, with a river view & sumptuous queen size bed has a delightful aviary theme. The bath with a beautifully tiled & glassed shower is just a few steps away from both 2nd floor bedrooms.
ONE STAY AT "BEAU OVERLOOK" COTTAGE & YOU TOO WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER THE DISCRIMINATING VACATIONER!
