Champlain Vistas

3295 Essex Road , Willsboro, NY 12996 USA (Show map)


This charming old farmhouse with wrap-around porch, located on the shores of Lake Champlain in Northern New York State was part of a large farming complex for over 200 years. Champlain Vistas offers spectacular lake and mountain views looking East to Vermont, and again, looking West to the Adirondacks of New York. Old country barns, windmill, gardens and fields add an extra touch of beauty to the peaceful landscape. A very special location for weddings , family reunions, art/writer workshops.

Fantastic visit

Charming home, fantastic views, and accommodating hosts. I was on a genealogy trip and they even contacted a source for me. Above and beyond! Would love to go back.

My wife and I loved it so much we have booked the Green mountain room for our Anniversary this summer

Barb and Bob were wonderful hosts. The moment we arrived and exited our vehicle we were welcomed with the beautiful scent and of Lilacs that were in bloom! The view from our room was spectacular, we could see across Lake Champlain and the Vermont Mountains and from behind the Inn were the Adirondacks! We'll be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
