This home is owned by four of five siblings. We spent our summers here growing up, creating wonderful memories that today we share with our children and grandchildren. We hope others can enjoy it as we have and make their own memories.
Annie purchased this House in 1965
Why Annie chose Westport:
Comfortable, welcoming home, right on the lake that can accommodate larger families.
The house was beautiful much more than you could see on line the grounds were beautiful plenty of room for a large family loved the old stove. beach was wonderful the water perfect. not bothered by morsels at all. the only drawback was there was no air conditioning on the main floor and in the studio apartment. Other than that it was wonderful.

Our family absolutely loved this spot. It was really great for our large group of 16 and 6 kids (5 and under). The yard was enormous and perfect for so many activities. Everyone enjoyed themselves and had plenty of space to spread out. We particularly enjoyed cooking in the kitchen with the awesome stove / flat top. The deck was great with plenty of places to sit. One recommendation I would have is a clean-up of the beach in front of the house. We enjoyed the water a lot the week we stayed - one day we rented a boat and water skiied, we brought our kayaks and the kids spent lots of time enjoying the shore. It would have been even more enjoyable if there was a little more beach to enjoy. But other than that it was so great - we would stay again for sure! Thank you for hosting us!

Our family group of 17 had the most wonderful time at this property. The house was large enough that everyone had their own space and we didn't feel like we were on top of each other. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains were breath taking. The area is very quiet, keep that in mind if you need groceries and food, but we prefer that to the hustle and bustle of some of the other areas around the lake. The sprawling lawn allowed for the kids to play outside, there is a staircase down to the lake and dock. Bring water shoes, the beach is rocky once you enter the water. Annie was a wonderful host and answered my questions right away. Hands down one of the most beautiful places we've stayed.

We absolutely loved the house and the location! We had 16 people with us and we all had enough space to spread out. The large living room and dining area allowed us to gather as a group! The yard was perfect for playing games which we love to do! The owners were very responsive whenever we reached out to them and were amazing! We can’t wait to go back again next year! Best house EVER!

We had a wonderful stay here! We were a group aged 10-84, getting together for the first time since Covid-19. The house is huge and had plenty of room for us to spread out, and areas for us to gather as well. The view of Lake Champlain is beautiful; we loved waking up to see the sunrise and looking across to the mountains of Vermont. This house has everything you could need. We like to cook, and found the kitchen to be well stocked with everything needed for cooking a meal of any kind, as well as plenty of plates and flatware. And that stove...awesome! It's obvious that this house has held many family gatherings and been the place where memories are made, and it has done that for our family as well. The town of Westport is quiet and lovely, and a short drive to area attractions such as Ausable Chasm and Lake Placid. We loved kayaking and canoeing on the lake. The owner is great! She responds to communication quickly, and made check-in/check-out easy. We would go back to this house again and again!

We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It's well laid out -- a beautiful living room with sweeping views of the lake, spacious master bedroom, lots of other bedrooms on the second story/basement well-insulated from the upstairs noise, 3 different dining areas (1 indoor, 2 outdoor), and a ping-pong room.
There is lots of land -- a playground for kids, a firepit, a big lawn for lawn games (this isn't apparent in the pictures) -- and the dock is very close to the house. It's walking distance to town, which was also nice.
Annie was a very responsive host. We couldn't figure out wifi instructions when we first got in and she responded to my text within minutes.
A couple of things to be aware of. (1) the kitchen stove looks like it's from a restaurant kitchen -- massive, with a built-in griddle, lots of burners, powerful exhaust hood, and no obvious way to simmer. If you're familiar with this type of appliance, it must be really cool. If you're not, it takes some getting used to. (2) Only the upstairs bedrooms are climate-controlled. It really shouldn't be a problem most weeks but we picked a particularly hot one, and the basement/ping-pong room bedrooms were too warm as a result. (3) We went in late June, and the lake was quite cold. You can pop in and out but you wouldn't want to stay in for a while. Neighbors who were making dock repairs were wearing wetsuits. None of these are problems with the house, of course. Just something to keep in mind when planning your trip.

This house is exactly what we wanted. The cottage is older, historic, with lots of creaks and cracks but it really was just perfect. We had our annual family vacation with 6 adults and 4 small children and we couldn't have been happier. The kitchen has everything you could ever need, there are grills, outdoor furniture, a playground and of course the beautiful lake.
We look forward to returning.

When we arrived at this property the cleaning lady was there and apologetic about the condition of the house - she said the renters before us left it in the worst condition she had seen in her 17 years cleaning the house. She was right, the home was very dirty and the kitchen smelled awful. When we pulled out kitchen towels, silverware and sponges everything was filthy. It was hard to even be in the kitchen given the smell. I reached out the owner, she apologized for the condition and came with her husband to evaluate it the next day. While she was there I asked if I could get my money back and she offered the next day that I could get a 50% refund (after staying 2 of 7 nights) or the cleaning lady could come back. We opted to have the cleaning lady return given the amount of money we would lose. We made a list for the cleaning lady and she worked hard to get it as clean for us as she could, although it certainly still needed a deep clean to get it up to an acceptable level.
The positives are that this is a very big house on a beautiful piece of property. The views are absolutely incredible and we found jars full of sea glass. We enjoyed swimming and floating in the lake and spent hours on the grand deck staring out. The people in town were very friendly and we enjoyed some take out food as well as a few nights outdoor dining (and the most affordable coffee shop I’ve ever been to).
Overall, the house could certainly use some updates, it’s old, has a ton of character and could probably be one of the most amazing place in the Adirondacks with some money put into it.

It was perfect!

Generous and private lakeside property. We spent hours watching the lake from the grand deck and swimming off the floating dock.
