While searching for a B & B in Plattsburgh I found the Golden Gate which is right on lake Champlain. When I called to book it, the woman quoted the suspiciously low price of $99/2nights. This was a little alarming, but not as scary as realizing that the hotel was one of the many places past the paper mill that had been flooded a few years back following an extra heavy spring snow melt. When we arrived, I asked to see the room before paying, and aside from a very intense smelling "air freshener" (which I removed), the room was clean and perfect for our needs (visiting our son at SUNY Plattsburgh and hiking). The bed (a king) was surprisingly excellent. We saw no evidence of the flood even though our room was right on the beach. In general, the Golden Gate offers a spectacular view of Lake Champlain and an inexpensive base. Aside from the lake, there is nothing special about the neighborhood, but a short drive brings you to downtown Plattsburgh which has a decent bar/restaurant scene because of the students, or any number of great day hiking venues around the lake or in the Adirondacks.
