Within walking distance is Indian Bay Marina for boat dockage at $2.00 a foot per day. Pay for six and stay for 7. On this beautiful body of water, rest, relax, and recreate with swimming, fishing, and boating, depending on the season. On land there are lots of country road miles for biking, trails for hiking and areas for picnics as well as a 9-hole golf course for some great Fall golfing. There are at least a dozen other golf courses within an hour drive. Experience the rock climbing wall, The Crux, at Camp Poko-MacCready, less than fifteen minutes away. Or if you are looking for a less physical and less active time away, visit our well-stocked library to borrow a good book to read and just sit by the waters of Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains to read and reflect. If you are a movie fan, two multi-plex theaters in Plattsburgh are only 30 minutes away. And if it is a vacation from cooking that you are looking for, enjoy our local restaurants in Willsboro, Essex, Elizabethtown, Keene, Lake Placid, Wilmington, and Peru. If music is your thing, spend your Tuesday evening at the local bowling alley's 'Open Mic' to join in or enjoy. We are located within minutes or a few hours of culture, history, and fun at Ft. Ticonderoga, Whiteface Mountain, Lake Placid or Montreal.

The view of the Adirondack Mountains to your west and Valcour Island to your North will offer some great scenery. Make this camp you're 'come home to' retreat after a day of fishing, boating, leaf peeping, antique hunting, or a days shopping trip to Burlington, VT as a foot passenger on the Port Kent Ferry.

This 3 bedroom camp has wireless internet and cable television, electric heat, and air conditioning are there for your temperature comfort. There are a washer and dryer on site for your use for no additional fee. There are an indoor tub/shower and an outside shower for your Adirondack pleasure. Enjoy the Beauty of the Adirondacks in all seasons by the shores of Willsboro Bay on Lake Champlain. See our calendar.

About the Owner

About Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young:

Born here, grew up here, live here and retired here. Can't imagine being anywhere else from Spring to Fall than on Lake Champlain. As for my brother, the co-owner, he was born here and returned here after a short time away, but always spent his summers here with his family every opportunity they had. This is where 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th generation family members have made great memories, and we hope it will be the spot for many wonderful memories made by your family.

Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young purchased this Cottage in 1963

Why Barbara "Bobbi" Paye & Douglas "Randy" Young chose Willsboro, NY:
Our parents turned this property over to my brother and I many years ago, so the property would remain in the family. When it is not rented, many family memories of birthdays, anniversaries, and family reunions are made and recalled. This waterfront property is conveniently located near the marina, the State Boat Launch, a Golf Course, Tennis Courts, pickleball court and in close proximity to so many great day trips, and if you just want to relax, it offers just the right setting. Look at our Reviews!!!!! It also fits the needs of fishermen looking for a place to stay with our 60-foot dock and mooring.

What makes this Cottage unique:
Experience first-hand as the benefits have different uniqueness to different guests..

Great Stay!

We enjoyed our stay at this property. House was very clean and gorgeous property! Bobbi and family were amazing to deal with. We had some unfortunate confusion with VRBO and they were very understanding! Can’t wait to return next year’

Family friendly with great views

We had a great family vacation at Golden Rock with our 3 kids (7 and under). The kids enjoyed easy walk in access to the lake and the row boat as well as the sandbox and outdoor shower. We made s’mores every night and hung out on the bench swings. We also rented a boat one day and explored Lake Champlain - wildlife watching, tubing, and lunch at the Old Dock. The short walk to Indian Bay to grab ice cream or dinner was also so convenient. We’ll be back, thanks!

Wonderful Week on Willsboro Point

We were looking for a lake front cottage that would accept pets and were so lucky to find this spot. The cottage is right on the water with amazing views of the lake and the mountains. It was spotlessly clean and well-appointed with everything we needed. I can't say enough about how kind, thoughtful, and fun the hosts Bobbi and Randy were, and how welcome they made us feel. Being new to the area, it was great to have their tips about what to do, where to eat, and how to enjoy lake life. We hope to return next year.

Great Vacation Rental

The cottage is exactly what the photos show. As soon as you turn the corner and see the cottage you get excited. You walk in the cottage and all you see is the lake! It is fabulous! The inside has plenty of sitting for all. They have everything that you need, even 2 coffee pots. The 1.5 baths is a bonus plus laundry room.
Outside they have a rowboat and fire pit and of course the nice dock. For me the swings that they have on the patio were my favorite thing. Could of sat there forever! Will be back!

Labor Day

Fully equipped and well maintained cottage right on the water. Couldn't be happier with our stay. The hosts were very accommodating and receptive to our needs. I would highly recommend this rental to other families. My brothers family and ours enjoyed our relaxing weekend away.

Beautiful Lake Front Rental

My husband and our little toddler were looking for a family friendly place to stay on Lake Champlain, if you’re looking for a similar place look no further! A beautiful location and wonderful stay at camp. Just a short drive from the historical town of Essex, hour drive to Lake Placid, and thirty minutes to Plattsburgh. Bobbi was very prompt and welcoming, even as we were unfamiliar with the area coming from California. Would love to visit again!!

Perfect family vacation

Golden Rock Camp was the perfect place for our family fishing vacation. The owners were so helpful and accommodating. They anticipated our needs before we even thought of it. The brand new pack and play, the brand new high chair, and all the plug protectors made us feel that our little were truly welcome. The fresh sand in the sand box along with children’s chairs and a picnic table was so appreciated....so thoughtful! The swimming area was soft and sandy. The view was outstanding. We hope to return!
