About Sarah and Tom Brown

I am a veterinarian and happily married to my wife Sarah. We have 4 kids and love to travel. We both grew up in this region and love the four seasons for all they have to offer. We live on 20 minutes from this camp.

Sarah and Tom Brown purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Sarah and Tom Brown chose Plattsburgh

This bay is where my parents rented a camp each summer as a kid, I was able to purchase this original camp - one of the last and preserve the charm.

What makes this cottage unique

The old camps are very close to the water and have a great fireplace in the middle with a huge screen porch on the front. Go back in time and enjoy a classic camp experience on lake Champlains 'Indian Bay'. The perfect family retreat to get back to simple fun. Great views of the Green Mountains and watch the sunrise from your bed as two of the three bedroom face east.

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting the Wild Cottage and it completely lived up to our first experience staying there. The house is newly updated, cozy, perfect for kids and adults, and plenty to do! We truly felt disconnected from reality. The private beach is perfect for our 2.5 year old and just spending quality time with just our family. We built a beach bonfire every night and had every meal on the gorgeous screened in porch overlooking the lake. I will look back on the memories we created there all year long!

Classic Lakeside Cabin/Home with great Lake Access

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this spot. Secluded with great access to the lake. Nicely furnished with a great kitchen. Many kayaks, canoes, paddleboard for use. Screened porch provides a great place for our large family to meet, eat, play games, etc. Owner was very accomodating and made check-in and checkout very easy. We also rented a nearby cottage and were able to accommodate our large extended family with ease across the two properties.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful, very clean and nicely appointed. The screened in porch and outdoor shower were the highlights of the house- definitely give a great outdoor living feel.

The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with.

The location is amazing. The lake is beautiful and the island made for really fun exploring. The only downfall was that there wasn't a place to keep our boat. We thought that there was a mooring, but it was the neighbor's.

Overall an incredible family vacation. My 3 boys loved every second of it!

The perfect lake house

  • 5 of 5

The house and the stay exceeded expectations. Our first family vacation was a memorable one in this little slice of heaven. The house was spotless, updated and well stocked. I woke up everyday to watch the breathtaking sunrise and the overall scenery with views of the Green Mountains in the background. Even when it rained one night we had plenty to do with the games and dart board in the house. We brought our 1.5 year old and he had a blast - this is the perfect house to bring kids to, but yet perfect for adults too. The private sandy beach and sand toys, kayaks, stand up paddle board made the stay even more perfect. The owners were super nice and did a wonderful job making sure we had the perfect stay. We already can't wait to go back!

Wonderful, relaxing - NY side of Lake Champlain

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this house for a week. We were there with the two of us, our three sons age 18-21 and our 87 year old aunt (who uses a walker). The house is beautiful, with views of the lake throughout most of the house, including the screened in porch and the master bedroom. There is also a nice beach and dock, with kayaks and stand-up paddleboards. The boys were happy that there was Wi-Fi, and our aunt was happy that she could sit on the porch and drink coffee and read.

In addition to just hanging out and relaxing, we used the house as a jumping off point to visit Burlington, VT one day (and Ben & Jerry's) and Montreal another day. Each was about 1-1.5 hours away, so easy to get to. We also did two days of hiking in the Adirondacks, one about 45 minutes away in the High Peaks region and the other about 30 minutes away.

Hosts Tom and Sarah were great - very responsive to any questions we had. We highly recommend this house.
