Lovely Peaceful Home on Lake Champlain
Adirondacks beyond. Or you can swim in the crystal clear water or just sit on the beach. If you want to be more active you can fish off the shore or from the canoe or kayak which come with
the cottage. Or you can hike up the trails on Eagle Mountain and view the incredible beauty all around. Or just go for a long walk or bike or ride on the miles of quiet dirt roads that you must cross to
get to the camp.The cottage is located on Cold Spring Road, in Milton at the base of Eagle Mountain which is the highest point immediately adjacent to Lake Champlain. Most of Eagle Mountain and the surrounding lakeshore is preserved by the Lake Champlain Land Trust. The cottage is on the
eastern shore of the lake halfway between Burlington and St Albans and overlooking the Lake Champlain Islands.We also rent a home two doors away if you are looking for something larger or wish to combine two homes for a family or shared vacation with friends
Maximum Occupancy 6 with no more than 4 adults.
The two bedroom cabin has been fully renovated and has been freshly painted inside with warm cozy colors and decorated with comfortable and inviting furnishings. It is full of light and fresh air.
The large living room, which now incorporates the old porch, has a wall of windows looking out over the lake just feet away.
The kitchen is fully updated with full size gas stove, refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker and all the necessary cookware, dishes and utensils. There is a gas grill and picnic table outside.
There are two private and separated bedrooms, including the master bedroom with sliding glass doors leading onto the outside deck. The master bedroom has a double size bed and the second bedroom also has a double bed. There is also a futon couch in the living room. So it is the perfect size is for a couple with a few children or two couples. It is really too small for more than 4 adults. Finally there is the front deck off the living room and master bedroom overlooking the Lake, some small and large islands and the
The most recommended activity is to do nothing. Or almost nothing. Relax. Wind down. Nap. Read. Do a jigsaw puzzle. Watch the sunset. Putter around. There is a TV/DVD combo if you do need some electronic entertainment but there is no TV reception or only a dial up internet connection.
If you want to be more active. Walk the long, long private road or miles of connected dirt roads. Hike the trail from the property up Eagle Mountain and enjoy sweeping views of the lake, islands and
mountians. Swim. Fish. Bike. Go for a boat ride. Build a fire on the beach and roast marshmallows.

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). These areas are easily commuted via several ferries that run back & forth between NY & VT. 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 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.
