Inspiriting, Nourishing, Serene, Peaceful, Idyllic, Relaxing, Impressive, Notable, Glorious... in every way INSPIRING.

We had notified the innkeepers in advance that we would be arriving later than the appointed time and, thus, found a colorfully-decorated envelope waiting for us with instructions enclosed. The note directed us to our room and to other places where we might find useful information. While waiting for Tom to wash up, I sat outside in one of two Adirondack chairs on our private deck overlooking the side/front yard, meadow beyond that, and park across the road. Watching the birds dart back and forth was the perfect way to begin to unwind/relax, though dark clouds loomed and threatened to spill the rain the weather forecasters had been calling for all day. After leaving our bags in our room (The Weaver, on the main floor), we wandered out to explore the lodge... quietly tiptoeing like mice so as not to disturb this quiet, magical place. Finding only one or two cars in the parking area, we assumed other guests had headed into town to find supper and set off to do the same. Upon returning later, we found a full parking area, a young couple looking through books in the sitting area, and others sitting in the screened-in gazebo rocking and chatting quietly on what had turned out to be a beautiful evening. Tired after a long day of exploring Grand Isle, Burlington, Rouses Point, North Hero, St. Albans, Missisquoi National Wildlife Refuge and all of the pretty little towns, we showered quickly and fell into bed.
We were the first to find the dining room the next morning. There, we were greeted warmly by Karen who showed us the menu options and encouraged coffee and a selection of juices. Having been gently wakened by birds, I asked her about the big, black cat that wandered by our glass doors that morning... "Frisky," she smiled. By the sight of him, I could tell he may have been more interested in the meadow mice and darting birds but something told me he was well-fed by our innkeepers. Creston stuck his head out of the kitchen and greeted us just then. Others began to arrive just as we finished deciding between omelet (egg, mushrooms, poblano peppers, cheese and a delightful sauce) and pancakes (cinnamon-strawberry with real maple syrup)... GREAT choices... and completely made-from-scratch-fresh-everything... I had the omelet and Tom had the cakes. Watching Angus, the dog, outside lolling loosely in the back yard made me wish I could stay for a week. A month. A year. We will definitely return to this heavenly lodge. Thank you, Creston and Karen!

Room Tip: The Weaver room was quiet, spacious, comfortable and the bed was AMAZING. So comfortable. We were...

Stayed here with my family, and was shocked at how homey and comfortable the whole lodge felt. Hosts were so welcoming! Great place to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and enjoy time with family. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone!

Definitely one of the best places we have stayed at! Lovely hosts, very relaxing and tranquil night spent in beautiful surroundings. The room was lovely and the breakfast spot on. Could have stayed for so much longer...!

Thanks, Creston and Karen for a wonderful anniversary stay. The lodge and surrounding grounds are beautiful and peaceful. We needed a little 'unwind' time, and the Point au Roche Lodge was the perfect place ... lovely room, welcoming hosts (including the dogs) and a superb breakfast. We wish we could have stayed longer, but we'll be back.

Normally, when we make a run "up north" we would be inclined to either rent a cottage or stay in a chain hotel, but recently we discovered this wonderful inn with prices comparable to one of the better Plattsburgh hotels. It is absolutely lovely--a pretty country setting yet still convenient to everything because of I-87. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. We even had our own private porch with ADK chairs and lots of bird feeders and birds galore. The state park is right across the road which provided us with a delightful hike along Lake Champlain, and the food at breakfast was absolutely delicious. Creston and Karen are the perfect hosts as well. It is just a great place that we never knew about and are SO glad we found! We will definitely return here on any future trips to the Plattsburgh area!!

We booked a room here during a trip to Quebec and greatly enjoyed our stay. We couldn't get our rental car until the next day so we were without a vehicle but still had a great time. We walked to a park featuring Lake Champlain and ordered Chinese food from a nearby restaurant. For bird lovers this is a great spot. There are many bird feeders in the back yard that were often busy. It's very peaceful and a great place to relax!
