About Jennifer

Ambitious and accomplished, we are an industrious duo that function as a well-oiled machine. As high school sweethearts, we grew together on the shores of Lake Champlain, then journeyed to Washington D.C. for a fresh start. We have lived the urbanite dream for nearly two decades and raised a handful of ankle-biters (yes, five!). We are able escape to our special home often, but also would like to share it with others. When we receive great reviews about our "little slice of heaven", it truly warms our heart! We feel so delighted to share our special place with the world.

Jennifer purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jennifer chose Lake Champlain Valley

Ten years ago we decided to purchase a cabin on beautiful Lake Champlain in order to be closer to family. Our family has spent every summer this past decade enjoying the ups and downs of transforming this once dilapidated cabin into a rustic retreat. Post-purchase, it quickly became clear that our hopes for spending time at a relaxing getaway were a bit misguided. This project-after-project lifestyle offered us the inspiration we needed to name our cozy lakefront cabin: an ironic, ‘Serenity Now’. Her name, derived from the comedic sitcom, Seinfeld, which once featured an overworked man exclaiming ‘serenity now’ amidst a variety of stressful circumstances. Our family, especially our five kiddos, found themselves affectionately adopting this phrase. With herculean effort, we have transformed this challenging fixer-upper into a modern Adirondack-style escape. We are exuberantly proud to share her with all of you.

What makes this cabin unique

Serenity Now is directly lakefront as opposed to many area properties with a road barrier to Lake Champlain. You will find the lake by opening french doors and following a beautiful slate walkway down to a second deck overlooking the lake. We have tried hard to preserve the authentic nature of our Adirondack cabin. Guests truly feel transformed to someplace magical and serene. At Serenity Now, you are surrounded by all things beautiful and rustic. Our home is clean, comfortable and modern. There really is no "roughing it" despite the rustic surroundings and so we appeal to even the most discerning of vacationers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for all the wonderful hospitality. This cabin encompasses all that is truly Adirondack. Glamping is an understatement given the luxury and modern updates... We had an incredible time sitting fireside gazing at the scenic beauty of Lake Champlain. Swinging in the hammock, grilling hamburgers and sipping a brew brought us endless pleasure. Sleeping arrangements were fantastic and we loved not having to haul towels, blankets and sheets. Serenity Now is a true gem! We will be back soon.

  • 4 of 5

My wife, two adult kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our Thanksgiving holiday at Serenity Now. Beautifully located facing east over Lake Champlain, it is a cosy comfortable cottage which was a pleasure to stay in for 4 nights. We used it as a base for seeing Vermont, Lake Placid and Montreal.

I thoroughly recommend it.

The name of the cabin says it all... SERENITY NOW.

  • 5 of 5

Serenity Now, the cabin on Lake Champlain in Plattsburgh, New York, was exactly that...SERENE.

My husband and I, along with our dog, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. We never turned on the TV during our time there. Instead, we relaxed on the Adirondack chairs in the yard or sat on the sofa facing the lake and enjoyed the view of Lake Champlain. We especially liked watching the Ferry Boats come and go and the sounds of the water splashing against the shoreline. We took a ferry to Vermont and had lunch in Burlington. We also spent days traveling through the Adirondack Mountains.

We were amazed at the craftsmanship of cabin. The woodwork throughout is absolutely beautiful, especially the carved fish on the wall over the television. Jennifer, the owner of the cabin, graciously had a bottle of wine on the table welcoming us to her cabin.

We would highly recommend "Serenity Now" to anyone that would like a peaceful and relaxing getaway.
