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

We're so grateful to have stayed in your lovely cabin for Thanksgiving. It was everything we wished for and more! This is a beautiful part of the world and it was such a treat to be able to explore it.



Thank you so much.

Serenity Now is indeed serene - wonderful cosy cottage right on Lake Champlain, perfect for an escap

  • 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.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

This retreat is all that you want for a vacation that is relaxing and "water" related. The arrivals and departures of the ferries added to the enjoyment of our time at the cottage. Having coffee beside the water or lying in the hammock resting certainly puts one in a Zen mood. The home is full of wonderful details that show how much this place is loved by the family who owns it. The location is quiet and convenient to many outdoor activities. The list of places to visit and detailed evaluations of restaurants recommended by the family certainly made our vacation more enjoyable. This cottage is a real find.

Best Birthday get a way by Far!!

  • 5 of 5

I found Serenity Now on VRBO when looking for a relaxing cottage on Lake Champlain for a five day get a way for my Birthday. Accompanying me was my husband and sister. We loved the décor of the cottage and the view from even inside the cottage looking across the lake. It was very relaxing and comfortable. We made ourselves at home right away!! Great location as near ferry which we took continuing on to Burlington and Stowe. Morning walks along the road looking at the water were breathtaking! My first love is the ocean but this is a close second. Would love to come in the Summer and in Fall when leaves are turning! I know we will return.

Jennifer was easy to deal with from the start and we were able to leave later on Labor Day as was my birthday. Hated to leave but will return!
