The Adirondack Lakes: Lake Champlain Valley
Lake Champlain Valley is the ideal spot for a vacation rental in many ways. For one thing, it has both natural beauty and space. Make that lots of space: Lake Champlain Valley embraces parts of New York and Vermont between the Adirondacks and the Green Mountains. It extends upward into Quebec, Canada.
The New York section of the Lake Champlain Valley is actually part of the Adirondack Park; specifically, its made up of parts of Essex and Clinton counties. The main towns are Ticonderoga (to the south) and Plattsburgh (to the north); the main city of the region is Burlington, Vermont, on the other side of Lake Champlain.
A vacation rental on the shores of Lake Champlain is more than a possibility: at over 120 miles long and with a coastline sprinkled with villages and towns, thereís a lot of lakefront to build on. And this doesnít include the nearly 80 islands that dot the lake. While Lake Champlain is smaller than any of the Great Lakes, itís no fishing pond, either!
Getting There: (From Plattsburgh) Plattsburgh International Airport is the nearest commercial airport. Otherwise, itís over 300 miles north of New York City and 155 miles north of Albany.
