A TRUE ADIRONDACK MOUNTAIN GET AWAY, BREATH-TAKING VIEWS OF LAKE CHAMPLAIN
We are Elizabeth and Emily, sisters and third generation owners of this "camp" on Lake Champlain. We both live in Upstate NY with our families. This Summer Emily and her Chef/Husband, Scott, will be operating a restaurant in Westport, called Westport Yacht Club (open to the public).
Why Owner chose Westport
Our Grandparents built this very large "camp" as a place for family members to gather. We've spent Summers here our entire lives. With children to raise and businesses to run, we don't get away to spend time at the log cabin as much as we would like. It didn't feel right having this beautiful get-away stand empty most of the season. We decided to open the doors to renters who can enjoy it as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
Our favorite part of staying at the log cabin is the wild life. Looking over the lake, we often see bald eagles or huge osprey soaring. The field leading down to the house is filled with deer and wild turkeys. Fireflies light up the edge of the woods at night. Butterflies and humming birds surround the garden. There are plenty of fish to be caught in the lake, or put on a mask and snorkel just to watch the school of perch that swim right off the beach. Songbirds, chipmunks and squirrels are abundant. Bats soar at night and spiders spin their webs outside. If you are lucky, you might get to see Mr. Fox or Mr. Porcupine. They are amazing to look at, just keep your distance! And of course, keep your eye out for Champ, the Lake Champlain Sea Monster!!

The house was perfect! If your looking for Peace and quiet and privacy. This is the place we go. The kids all enjoyed the kayaks and the canoe. The house was a true log cabin! Definitely a place I will go back to.
Perfect quiet getaway
The cabin is very quiet. Its rustic and peaceful. The lake front is great. We will stay again
Serene log cabin on lake Champlain
If you are looking for a very peaceful, somewhat rustic log cabin experience on a gorgeous lake, this is the place! We really enjoyed and had the best long weekend at this peaceful, beautiful cabin. The dining room table overlooking the lake is wonderful. Our kids had so much fun taking the 3 Kayaks out on the water, and playing board games in the cabin. The owner is so responsive and accommodating for any questions, and we also especially enjoyed her amazing restaurant at the Westport Yacht club. There are spiders and the occasional mouse, so you do have to be comfortable with a possible critter. But if you are looking for an incredibly peaceful true log cabin on the lake, this is so wonderful. We look forward to coming back next summer!
Lovely views, private and spacious
We were 2 families staying here and had plenty of room for 9 people. The indoor and outdoor spaces were all very comfortable, and there were even no bugs for our visit. The kayaks and canoe were very much enjoyed, and we spent lots of time swimming as well.
One note - the queen/bunk bed bedroom is a passthrough to the double/twin bedroom. This meant those staying in the double/twin bedroom had to go outside and back in the front door if they wanted to access the house and give that queen/bunk bedroom privacy.
Gorgeous views from all rooms, amazing privacy surrounded by woods, we should have grown up here
This amazing space had plenty of room for all of my grandchildren, their parents and some friends. The views are stunning and the log cabin is huge. We had everything we needed — barbecues, firepit, 3 bathrooms, tons of dishes. On the waterfront, we felt a world away from everything. We made good use of our swim shoes on the rocky bottom. Loved swimming in clean, clear water.
Rustic cabin with beautiful location, views and access to Lake Champlain
The views and location are wonderful and the cabin is in a very private location. Future visitors should expect more of a rustic camping experience than a vacation home but we enjoyed ourselves and the beds were comfortable. There was plenty of space for the 5 of us.
