The refreshing thing about Lake Champlain – well, apart from the gorgeous, Adirondack-flanked lake itself – is its lack of bustle and over-development. There’s lots to do, like hike, golf, camp and take boat cruises, but the beauty is, how easy it is to not do anything.

Had a wonderful boat ride on a great night recently on Lake Champlain. The lake is large and the scenery is gorgeous all around the lake with many nooks and so forth to trek around. Boaters were respectful and the area was clean with friendly people.

Want to see a sunset or sunrise? Go to Lake Champlain in Vermont. It has it all. One day choppy another day like glass. Into sports? Boating, wind surfing, you name it, Vermonters have tried it here. Google your favorite water sport and most likely you will find a rental place to rent you equipment all on the beautiful Lake... More

Just back from a trip to Vermont where we cycled on the Champlain bikeway.. Amazing quiet roads and beautiful views. We also did the Missisquoi rail trail from East Berkshire to St Albans- lots of corn fields to see on that trip! We stayed at the Phineous Bed and Breakfast in Montgomery. Best B&B I have been to - every... More

For the PERFECT VIEW OF THE ADIRONDACK MOUNTAINS OF NEW YORK AND OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS OF VERMONT, the Lake Champlain Ferrys are the way to go.. A wonderful way for all to see Lake Champlain and both states..whether it's the 12 minute ferry or the hour long ferry you will never be disappointed. Fun for everyone and you might... More

Great day on the water. Great breakfast in Burlington and then paddled along the shore on lake Champlain. A little choppy but tons of fun!

Went to Kingsland bay for a picnic dinner and they would not let me into the park because I had our dog with us. Well it was 58 degrees out so I said I would leave the dog in the car with windows open for 1 hour and they would not allow me into the park because someone might complain.... More

The lake can be unpredictable. Calm one minute and treutrous the next. Come prepared for anything this time of year.

What a lovely, lovely stay. Six adults, two large dogs, three kitties and a whole lot of fun! This is a very pretty location right on the lake and we had an absolute blast. We cooked a LOT of food, saw a LOT of Amazon and Netflix tv, and played a LOT in the snow. The dogs especially had boisterous... More

While planning our trip to Lake Champlain, I read a review (I don't remember where) that recommended driving up Highway 2 North. I read that it was very nice with lots of little shops. It was so bad. There was nothing but closed businesses and boarded up buildings. We stopped and took a couple pictures of the lake but it... More

Early Thursday morning bicycle ride through the Lake Champlain Rail Trail, it was cool but very refreshing. Our trail ride was towards the causeway, towards Hero, we had to stop at the end, where the ferry should be. We had a short rest and snacks, we headed back to ride towards Burlington. The Lake is so beautiful, blue and very... More
