“Pleasant B and B, but out of the way”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

We stayed for two nights at the Lake Champlain Inn recently. It's a pretty and comfortable house, lovingly renovated by the owners who have been there for more than 20 years. The B and B is well off the beaten track. It's a good twenty minute drive to get to the nearest town for lunch or dinner, so if you want to be closer to places to eat, this is not the spot for you. Also, we found the room to be very small, especially for the price. We had the room pictured in the large photo above. There is basically only space for the bed and a chest in the room. There is one tiny bedside table on one side of the bed, it's so small that you can't even really put your book on it before you fall asleep. The bathroom was also strangely configured so that one had to manoeuvre the door in a certain way to get to the toilet. Our hosts had some last minute important personal business to attend to on our first morning there. Perfectly understandable, we didn't need to have a hot breakfast, and they gave us a key to the house since they left before we awoke. Breakfast was left out for us - one scone, a fruit cup, and coffee. They could have at least left some additional scones or bread in case we were hungry and wanted more, and maybe some butter and jam. For $150 per night, you don't expect to be rationed with one breakfast scone. I have stayed in perhaps 50 different B and Bs all,over the US, Canada, and Europe, and found the Lake Champlain Inn to be average, but not fantastic.

Room Tip: Don't get the smallest room. The other rooms are much more spacious.

We've stayed in a lot of B&B's and cannot remember any as delightful as Joe and Nancy's. It has everything you'd want in a country getaway. Clean. Comfortable. Pretty. Peaceful. The owners extend themselves to make sure you're pleased and serve an awesome breakfast, too. Stay here. It's exceptional!

Our stay at The Lake Champlain Inn was delightful in every detail. We loved the decor, the delicious breakfast, the knowledge and helpfulness of our hosts, Joe and Nancy. Their suggestions about sights to see in the area and on our way back home were spot on.
We look forward to returning to the peaceful, quiet setting where guests really do get TLC.

Although the Inn apparently has central air conditioning, it was too warm for us. The queen sized bed was firm and comfortable for me but the footboard made it uncomfortable for my tall husband. The private bathroom was sparkling clean. There was no choice in the menu for breakfast--no eggs, no yogurt, no milk, no cereal--only fruit, juice, coffee, a tasty scone and an extremely bran-rich pancake (if that is what it was??). My digestives are normally fine with my usual diet of salads, nuts and lean meats. I paid the price of eating the bran pancake the next day. I'm glad I was home!

Room Tip: Stay away from the bran pancake. Don't feel pressured into leaving a large tip when they have y...

We were the only ones there so it felt like we were in our own home. Should have taken a bigger room but it was for just one night on our way to Montreal.
Owners were lovely and very helpful
Breakfast was delicious. They told us to stop at Ausable Chasm, we did and loved it. Nice to walk off some of that fabulous croissant (the best I've had) and Fritatta. Chasm was beautiful and the raft ride back was fun. You can also tube it back.
Ate dinner at Emerald's at the Country Club I would suggest there and stop at the Wind Chill Factory for Ice Cream/Frozen yogurt!!

First and foremost, I would like to thank Joe and Nancy for being so kind and attentive to all our needs. This quaint Inn on Lake Champlain was the perfect Anniversary present. My husband and I spent four wonderful, restful nights at this charming place. From the moment we entered their threshold, to the time we left, all our needs were fulfilled. This was our first trip to the Adirondacks and Joe and Nancy made sure we would have a great time. They helped us arrange our days for sightseeing, dining at restaurants (and making reservations for us!), and prepared wonderful breakfasts for us, all with grace and kindness. Nancy even went out of her way to accommodate certain dietary needs (what a gal!) Our room was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. The banter with others guest at the morning breakfast table was so enjoyable we did not want to leave. The rooms are reasonably priced and you certainly get a lot of "bang for your buck". We have stayed at other B&B's and this one tops them all! Thank guys for a great vacation!

Room Tip: The Lake Room had the best view and space.

Quiet and lovely stay with Joe, did not get to meet Nancy. Joe was roughing it on his own, made a wonderful breakfast for us the 2 mornings we were there. He was very helpful in guiding us on our way through the attractions in the area. Thanks for a wonderful two nights in a beautiful serene setting.Brian and Lyn Kilgore
