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.

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..
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!

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.

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!!

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!

We've rented the camp now for 6 years (always the same early September week) and the weather was fantastic!! The place was as clean and comfortable as ever. We had friends down on different days and had plenty of room to offer them an overnight stay and on the one overcast day we joined my brother-in-law for some golf at the beautiful local 9-hole course. The view from inside with all the new windows is just stunning! The lake was perfect with the mooring for our boat and kayaks at our disposal. The week truly was one of the best we've ever had and have already booked for next year! We love it!!!

We've been coming to Willsboro since the early 60's; with many of our friends and family still calling Willsboro Point their summer home. Randy & Bobbi are fantastic hosts; their camp has some of the best views on the point. Dock and mooring available for all your toys. Lake frontage is pristine!!! It's a fisherman's paradise, with monster smallmouth / largemouth hitting on crankbaits!
At days end, a cocktail or two on the porch? Or maybe dinner at IBM? Sunsets are amazing!!! And don't forget Ethel's.... 'Michigans' are a must!
Thanks for another great visit, it's the best 2 weeks of our year.
Best to all; until next year.

This was our families' first visit to Lake Champlain and it won't be our last. This camp is spotlessly clean, well maintained and contains everything needed for a great vacation. The location, above all else is simply amazing. great for swimming, boating, campfires, star gazing and just relaxing. The thing that puts it over the top however, is the personal care and concern shown by Bobbi and Randy and their family. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

We anticipated renting a cottage for the week and instead got a well maintained, clean home right on the lake. The location is second to none. The views are surreal. We would take the row boat out and could see the bottom of the lake a good 20 feet down. I have never seen anything like it. The trip to Plattsburgh is less than 40 minutes. It is about an hour to Lake Placid and an hour with a Ferry Ride which is always fun to Burlington. The home itself was spotless. The bedrooms all have queen size beds, which is nice with 3 sets of couples (no couple gets the twin beds room). The living space is open with plenty of seating around the tv, with a huge table in the kitchen. We had great weather and spent most of our time outside at the picnic tables for our meals. The owners are the most gracious hosts and are so eager and willing to help in anyway they can. They are nearby for your convenience but not overbearing. They are so kind I can't say enough about them. The process for renting was so easy from beginning to end. The attention to detail they pay to their renters and how they want you to feel as if it is your own home is priceless. We went up for a College Graduation and needed a place for a week. What we left with is a place we all want to return to year in and year out.

My husband and I took our two grandchildren, 11 and 13, on vacation, and a wonderful memory was created. The home was clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Its location in a well protected cove was ideal. The owners, Barbara Payee and Doug Young, were friendly and helpful, but never intrusive. Days were spent fishing, boating, tubing, and swimming. Evenings were for barbecues and toasting smores in their firepit. We took our 17' boat to Burlington, Vermont, which was 15 minutes away. Another day, we drove our grandchildren to Quebec, Canada, which was about a half hour away. We would highly recommend this scenic retreat to everyone.

My family just experienced a fabulous two weeks stay at the camp. We had 6 adults, a toddler and an infant and everyone was very comfortable. The owners are extremely friendly and do whatever they can to make a stay pleasant. They are pet friendly (literally), accommodating, and provide all the “little” extras that make a visit easy and special. The kitchen was well equipped with basics (pots, pans, silverware, plates) and extras (blender, food processor, two refrigerators). The washer / dryer help with a longer stay and young children. Outside you are right on the water with good boat facilities, a row boat, a large dock, a gas grill, a “fire ring” and comfortable seating for relaxation or enjoying the scenery. The location is close to many off lake activities (golf, Lake Placid, Ausable Chasm). We definitely recommend the camp and plan to return.
