Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Willsboro - 'BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE'

ENJOY the ADIRONDACK COASTAL REGION at its best!

"Beau Overlook Cottage” is perched high upon the Boquet river banks in the Champlain coastal community of WILLSBORO, N.Y. - located just about opposite of Burlington, VT on LAKE CHAMPLAIN.

**** PLEASE ASK ABOUT 10 NITE MID-SUMMER SPECIAL FOR $1500. TOTAL**** -- the best deal anywhere (July 4th to July 14th) -- you will have time to really sink into the area, sightsee & relax too :-) Call today for this great offer!

From there you can take a short trip to the west to LAKE PLACID N.Y./ OLYMPIC VENUE, or to the east (fun trip on the ferry) to BURLINGTON, VT; or grab your passport and travel 1.5 hrs. north to MONTREAL CANADA.


*** IT'S ALL ABOUT THE GREAT LOGISTICS OF WILLSBORO ~ one visit & you will know why this is coming to be the ~ "destination spot" ~ for the sophisticated & discerning LOCAL, NATIONAL & INTERNATIONAL traveler in the North Country

But this town is not just about its logistics ~ this area is a haven for some of the most talented & hardworking young organic farmers to be found anywhere. Just down the road is the well known “ESSEX FARM” where Mark & Kristen Kimball host several farm to table suppers through-out the summer months. (Kristin wrote the best selling book about their organic farm experience, called “THE DIRTY LIFE”). This same farm has been a launching pad for other young organic super stars in the making ~ several of them are right in the village of Willsboro. Their wares can be seen each week at the local farm markets. HARVEST HILL FARM & REBER ROCK farms are some of my favorites.

This coming summer 2016, all guests that stay at “BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE” for a full week will be given a set of ORGANIC FOOD TRADE COUPONS as a gift from us ~ they can be redeemed for fresh organic produce at any of three different locations in the area. We want you to experience some of the best that the area has to offer in terms of home grown goodness & then take the experience home with you.

We are all about supporting the endeavors of these young farmers & think they can make a real difference in the world we live in. COME BE PART OUR HEALTH FOR HUMANITY, while vacationing in the Dacks :)

With this short essay, you may start to get an idea why I always say that 'there is so much to do - or nothing at all at BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE'!

About Joanne Vernon Sanders

As you can see from my photo, we are definitely animal lovers - or should I say - they definitely love us!

I love poking fun at myself & the world around me; as I know that we only go around once. So 'CARPE DIEM' - animals live in the moment, and those are some of the best lessons that I learn from them every day.

Joanne Vernon Sanders purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Joanne Vernon Sanders chose Lake Champlain Valley

Our son & his family live just on the other side of the pond (Lake Champlain). They have a farm in Vermont, near Mt. Mansfield. Five years ago, they had a set of twins and that was it for me.....I was not going to be kept down in the Flatlands any longer! We have traveled this area upside down & inside out for more than 30 years; and now it was our turn to enjoy the North Country whenever it suited us. Being closer to the grandchildren was paramount to my happiness.

The Willsboro area puts me in unique position to be able to commute back & forth from the mid-Atlantic region in a reasonable amount of time, yet I still feel tucked away in this friendly little village. It gives me the best of both worlds. Close enough to get away from the fast lane easily enough; yet a world away (which is the way that I like it)!

What makes this cottage unique

Willsboro is small; but offers so much natural beauty, that I can hardly put a proper description of it into words. This town has great LOGISTICS to so many other areas (Burlington, Lake Placid, Plattsburgh, Charlotte etc.) -- which makes it easy to get to most places that I would want to go, easily. The village itself provides a wide diversity of beautiful scenery & outdoor activities to enjoy. Having been a 'city girl', this village offers me a 'laid back' pace with no traffic lights :-) -- while still being close enough that it only take a minute to get to the post office; or go pick up a gallon of milk at the local grocer.

PLEASE READ: OTHER ATTRACTIONS & ACTIVITIES blurb (just above the OWNERS INFO. SECTION) .

In fact, I still have trouble fitting everything in that I want to see & do before the sun sets, each day that I am lucky enough to be there --- but then when night does fall, and the stars & moonlight start dancing on the river below -- watch out -- because that is one great view! On any given day, all I need do is grab my hiking stick and set out for a riverside hike along the lovely Boquet, which winds out to the mouth of Lake Champlain, two miles downstream; or jump in my car and take a 'Sunday afternoon drive' around this picturesque water community. I always come back to the cottage feeling refreshed & satisfied, that I have taken in some of MOTHER NATURE'S FINEST!

Having traveled extensively and been a commercial photographer for more than 30 years, this area just does "it" for me! Give it a chance and it may well suit your taste buds for natural beauty also!

Very clean, unique and inspiring decor, great location that is quiet, wonderful kitchen

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this location twice and our family has enjoyed it each time. This is one of the best stocked kitchens in a vacation home we have used. It is well suited to families with toys and kids movies available. There are plenty of outdoor family activities in the area within an hours drive. The home is very clean and the decor is inspiring. Make sure you take advantage of the outdoor fire pit and patio!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to have RETURN GUESTS come back to our nest in the north country again & again. It is very important for them to know that we are listening to any special needs that they may have & prepare the home as if the president was coming to stay. We take their vacation time very seriously; and try to do our part to make those visits as ENJOYABLE as possible. David was good about making a wonderful suggestion for a day trip from the house that will be ideal for families with young children & my grandchildren too, when I am up there. The home is filled with some of my best photographic work, inspired by the Adirondacks & the Green Mountains of Vermont. Even though I have not personally met most of the guests that stay in the cottage, I am sure that through the photographic artwork on display, that many of them share a true kindred spirit with my love of the north country. Thank you David & clan :)

Great House to Rent

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to rent if you are going to the Willsboro, NY area. The house was charming with so much detail. Amazing backyard setting with beautiful view. You can tell the owners take pride in their home. Clean, neat and totally comfortable. Would definitely rent again when I am in the area.

Owner's Response: Lynn & her family were in for a long weekend because of a family wedding taking place at Long Pond -- which is just a short 3 mile trip up Rte. 22 -- close to the access for RATTLESNAKE MT. Many people have stayed at our vacation home over the years, while family wedding celebrations were taking place in the area. The cottage offers all of the amenities that one would expect from an upscale hotel + its own very charming & sophisticated "small town" AMBIANCE. Come get some of yours soon :-)

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I completely forgot to leave a review and only now realized it! After our engagement in 2014, my fiancee, her parents, her brother and I stayed at Joanne's home. It was clean and spacious and Joanne was the consummate hostess giving us tips and info about the area as well as making herself available should we need anything. Willsboro is quiet small town - the perfect place to get away from it all. We especially like making s'mores in the fire pit while listening to the streaming in the backyard. Thanks Joanne!!

Owner's Response: We thank Chris for remembering our cottage in sleepy little Willsboro -- an ADIRONDACK COASTAL COMMUNITY of Lake Champlain. He is right that it is a quiet little town & a great way to get away from it all. Once I am "snugged into the area" -- it is very hard for me to pull myself away -- a world away from hustle & bustle. But the reality of the logistics of Willsboro, is that you can easily get to either Burlington, or Lake Placid in under an hour (both very scenic rides); as well as Montreal just being an hour & a half north of us. So the way that I feel about the area is -- you can truly have your cake (a laid back romantic style) and eat it too (get to the more touristy areas quickly enough) and have a great time getting there :) We appreciate that Chris remembered our cozy cottage on the riverbanks of the Boquet and hope that they find their way back here soon!

Lovely little house.

  • 5 of 5

Joanne was very nice and helpful. She gave us great advice about restaurants and what there is to do locally. The house was clean and comfortable. The patio behind the house was relaxing with a beautiful stream (river) down below. Willsboro is a short drive to the ferries to Vermont and not far from Lake Placid.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that Bernie & crew enjoyed our lovely little BEAU OVERLOOK COTTAGE. They seemed to enjoy the cathartic Boquet River, that flows just below the home; and even got to enjoy some Pickle Ball clinic at the local village tennis courts. I did not even know what Pickle Ball was until I met this great guest. We will look forward to our paths crossing again.

Homey

  • 5 of 5

Very homey place. Comfy beds and living area. Outdoor patio with grill and fire pit overlooking the river ended up being a favorite spot for us especially late at night. Also loved the chess/backgammon table in the living room. Will stay there again if in the area.

Owner's Response: We really enjoyed hosting Joe & his family -- even just for their short stay. They took very good care of the cottage -- which we really appreciate too. We knew that his gang would enjoy hanging out by the river & soaking up the fire pit & the riverside ambience;and it seems they did just that. We will look forward to their return trip. Home sweet home :)

Comfortable, well appointed and quiet house.

  • 4 of 5

Beau Overlook is a very nice and comfortable house that - with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms - would suit a large group. The kitchen, TV and internet all work well. Everything is maintained properly and very clean.

The town of Willsboro does not have much to offer but it is a good base for exploring Lake Champlain (there is a ferry to Vermont 5 miles south at Essex) and the Adirondacks. Within about an hour you can be at Lake Placed. Willsboro is also handy for the fast road running from Albany and Lake George in the south up to Montreal in the north.

I enjoyed my stay and would recommend the house to anyone wanting to visit the area.

Owner's Response: We appreciate Paul leaving us some good feedback about his recent visit. He is right in that the town of Willsboro is "sleepy & quiet" in the early months of spring. It is probably best suited for the late spring, summer & fall months for a visit. During those weeks,the town is buzzing with water activities from the river & LAKE CHAMPLAIN, as well as some very beautiful local hikes. The one very strong point about the town, that is true 365 days a year, is that its logistics, as Paul pointed out are WONDERFUL -- being just a quick ferry ride away from Vermont, and only an hour and a half south of Montreal + being about an hour east of Lake Placid -- make Willsboro a fine spot to enjoy great rest with fine appointments, while exploring other surrounding areas, as well as Willsboro & the Lake Champlain Valley, itself. Paul left our home in fine shape & we deeply appreciate conscientious travelers like him. He & I stayed in touch throughout his visit and we would welcome him back again anytime. Happy travels Paul - we hope that our paths will cross again!

THE THING THAT YOU SHOULD DO: at least once while you are here, (if you are of average fitness or better) is HIKE TO THE TOP OF RATTLESNAKE MOUNTAIN! The trail access for this 'local natural wonder' is just a tad more than 3 miles up Rte. 22 N -- opposite the sign for Long Pond Cabins. Gather your gear & a good set of hiking shoes and set out for an adventure to remember. This past fall, my husband & I ventured out with our pack and made it to the top in 45 minutes. What a site to behold from the top -- the Willsboro Bay & the Point in the foreground with Lake Champlain (dotted with the Four Brother Islands), set-off by the Vermont Green Mt. to the eastern horizon AND from the other side, a great view of Long Pond, snaking towards the High Peaks for a beautiful, late afternoon westerly view!!! You should take a half a day, pack a meal -- PLEASE DON'T forget your camera. Once you get to the top, you will be greeted by an area where quite a few natural artists have done their various stone stacking interpretations. Some are quite creative & intricate -- you may want to make your own contribution to this obviously INSPIRATIONAL VIEW!

Aside from the fact that Willsboro has such an abundance of fresh water access -- you can hardly beat the thrill of the view from the top of RATTLESNAKE MOUNTAIN!

Let me know what you think of it after you make your ascension -- I am still trying to plot my 'full moon night time view' in the future :-)
