This town is not just about its great logistics ~ this area is a haven for some of the most talented & hardworking young organic farmers to be found anywhere. Just down the road, is the well known “ESSEX FARM” where Mark & Kristen Kimball host several farm to table suppers through-out the summer months. (Kristin wrote the best selling book about their organic farm experience, called “THE DIRTY LIFE”). This same farm has been a launching pad for other young organic super stars in the making ~ several of them are right in the village of Willsboro. Their wares can be seen each week at the local farm markets. HARVEST HILL FARM & REBER ROCK farms are some of our favorites.

This town is not just about its great logistics ~ this area is a haven for some of the most talented & hardworking young organic farmers to be found anywhere. Just down the road, is the well known “ESSEX FARM” where Mark & Kristen Kimball host several farm to table suppers through-out the summer months. (Kristin wrote the best selling book about their organic farm experience, called “THE DIRTY LIFE”). This same farm has been a launching pad for other young organic super stars in the making ~ several of them are right in the village of Willsboro. Their wares can be seen each week at the local farm markets. HARVEST HILL FARM & REBER ROCK farms are some of our favorites. This fully furnished 3 bedroom, 2 bath, “vintage” home, built in 1877, has been restored to a state of the art vacation destination in the lovely village of Willsboro, New York. This picturesque coastal community lies at the foot of the Adirondack Park. Therefore, it benefits from having water frontage on Lake Champlain & also being part of the great Adirondack High Peaks region! LOGISTICS are one of the strongest points of Willsboro N.Y., this village lies just about opposite the city of Burlington, Vermont, off Lake Champlain (on the eastern most border of New York). These areas are easily commuted via several ferries that run back & forth between NY & VT. Many people travel to the Burlington waterfront area via foot passenger, bike or auto (THE PORT KENT - BURLINGTON). The quaint & quick CHARLOTTE - ESSEX will ferry you safely to the SHELBURNE MUSEUM (a wonderful family day trip for young & old is only about 1/2 hour from the cottage), THE VERMONT TEDDY BEAR FACTORY or a host of other wonderful destination spots in the Green Mountain State. You may travel westward for adventures into the HIGH PEAKS REGION of the ADIRONDACK PARK; OR, just stay put in the village area & enjoy all that the LAKE CHAMPLAIN area has to offer in terms of its inherent natural coastal beauty, which includes a peaceful; but well equipped village that has access to the sixth largest lake in the U.S., a scenic bay, a large pond and a clean river -- all within a few miles of one another! The pace of life in Willsboro, NY is a picture post card view of life in the slower lane. 'THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO - OR NOTHING AT ALL' The Boquet River, running just below the cottage, winds gently out to Lake Champlain at Noblewood Beach. There is a great launch spot to drop in a kayak or canoe (from just below the waterfalls), a few blocks downstream of the cottage. If you are ready for some day trips (close to the area), then you may consider FORT TICONDEROGA, THE ADIRONDACK MUSEUM, THE AU SABLE FALL CHASM just to name a few, that all have something totally different to offer. For the hikers, the HIGH PEAKS are just waiting for your next great adventure! One of the most well known is WHITE FACE , located in Wilmington NY - just about 35 minutes from the cottage. In the spring, summer & fall you should hike it on a clear day. When you reach the summit, you can see all the way the Canada -- the view of LAKE PLACID won't disappoint you. If you love to hike; but would like to stay right in town, don't miss RATTLESNAKE MT. - just 3 miles up Rte. 22 from the cottage. It is a hike with major pay-off from the summit - check out the views that I captured last fall on the house images posted to this site. Beyond the beautiful river view that can be enjoyed from most rooms in the house, the whimsical décor of the home, using top rate furnishings & fabrics would have to be one of the highlights of the cottage interior. You start to get a sense of it from the photos; but once you are there, you will note that the attention to detail put into the design of this home is amazing. Talk about a “home away from home” - Beau Overlook has taken that idea to a whole new level. The 1st floor has a master bedroom suite with full bath + washer & dryer. The ultra modern, fully equipped kitchen has a range with induction cook top that brings water to boil in 60 seconds. In addition, there is convection / microwave oven over top of the range. Most spices, cooking oils etc. are stocked in the home & ready to use. A quick stop at the market to pick up your immediate supplies & you are ready to go. The wireless internet is ready for all that need to stay on track with work while on their holiday; & the cable T.V. will provide a good variety of local television stations. The house is equipped with a whole house fan & there is also an air conditioner / dehumidifier that can be used when needed to provide comfort on muggy days. The 2nd floor has 2 additional bedrooms with vaulted ceilings & ceiling fans. The front bedroom with 2 twin size captain beds has been colorfully decorated with children in mind; & the back bedroom, with a river view & sumptuous queen size bed has a delightful aviary theme. The bath with a tiled & glassed shower is just a few steps away from both 2nd floor bedrooms. ONE STAY AT 'BEAU OVERLOOK' COTTAGE & YOU TOO WILL COME TO UNDERSTAND ALL THAT IT HAS TO OFFER THE DISCRIMINATING VACATIONER! More

About the neighborhood
The small village of Willsboro is part of the Adirondack Park. THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THE ADIRONDACK PARK ENCOMPASSES AN AREA LARGER THAN THE STATE OF VERMONT. Having the envious position of being at the most eastern point of the park, this town is also bordered by LAKE CHAMPLAIN ~ which is the body of water that separates NEW YORK and VERMONT. Therefore, this community has the benefits of being both a mountain & a water community with four bodies of water, all within a few miles of one another. There is the Boquet River - the steepest river from its point of origin in the state of New York - that empties in Lake Champlain at Noblewood Park; The Long Pond, which is a large body of pristine still water, just three miles up Rte. 22; The Willsboro Bay which is formed by the peninsula o...
