5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

My husband and I were treated to a lovely stay at The Lake Champlain Inn. It is in a rural setting about 15 minutes from Ticonderoga, a lovely historic New York town. The inn is nestled by the Green Mountains and the Adirondack Mountains, with Lake Champlain to the north, and Lake George to the south. Nancy and Joe greeted us and showed us the Mill Bay Room. The furniture in the room is antique and lovely, yet there is a private bathroom in the room. The entire house has woodwork that has been carefully restored and every detail is perfect.

We were given seven or eight suggestions for dinner, including the type of food we would find at each. The map showing the restaurant locations was easy to follow, and we chose Eddie's Restaurant for its homemade pasta and were delighted with the food.

While we were at dinner, they chilled the bottle of wine we had bought in Vermont, and even managed to offer us wine glasses from the vineyard we had stopped at.

The room was comfortable, quiet, and private. I asked for coffee to be available early, and when I went down just after 6:00 a.m, there was a wonderful, fresh pot of coffee waiting for me before I took a walk down the dead end road to see the water. They have a lovely front porch with Adirondack chairs, and a table with chairs. I was surrounded by hummingbirds as I enjoyed the peaceful morning. Breakfast was stuffed french toast, sausage, fruit, juice and coffee.

If you need peace and quiet, this is the place you want to stay.

This was my first time going to this Bed and Breakfast and my wife always likes to try different places. Now she has changed her mind. Joe and Nancy were great in taking care of our wishes. This was our 28th anniversary and they set up for flowers and champagne. There offers of the area for dinner and sight seeing were spot on. Breakfast was very good. We plan to go back next year.

Room Tip: No tip needed all the rooms are kept clean and well take care of

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast, and owners Nancy and Joe were gracious hosts. We had a very comfortable king-sized bed in a beautifully decorated room that was spotless - the bathroom as well was exceptionally clean. We had the option of eating breakfast at 8 or 9am, and what an awesome breakfast it was! The website accurately describes breakfast as "gourmet" - homemade scones, stuffed french toast, and fresh fruit included.

We stayed for two nights at the Lake Champlain Inn recently. It's a pretty and comfortable house, lovingly renovated by the owners who have been there for more than 20 years. The B and B is well off the beaten track. It's a good twenty minute drive to get to the nearest town for lunch or dinner, so if you want to be closer to places to eat, this is not the spot for you. Also, we found the room to be very small, especially for the price. We had the room pictured in the large photo above. There is basically only space for the bed and a chest in the room. There is one tiny bedside table on one side of the bed, it's so small that you can't even really put your book on it before you fall asleep. The bathroom was also strangely configured so that one had to manoeuvre the door in a certain way to get to the toilet. Our hosts had some last minute important personal business to attend to on our first morning there. Perfectly understandable, we didn't need to have a hot breakfast, and they gave us a key to the house since they left before we awoke. Breakfast was left out for us - one scone, a fruit cup, and coffee. They could have at least left some additional scones or bread in case we were hungry and wanted more, and maybe some butter and jam. For $150 per night, you don't expect to be rationed with one breakfast scone. I have stayed in perhaps 50 different B and Bs all,over the US, Canada, and Europe, and found the Lake Champlain Inn to be average, but not fantastic.

Room Tip: Don't get the smallest room. The other rooms are much more spacious.

We've stayed in a lot of B&B's and cannot remember any as delightful as Joe and Nancy's. It has everything you'd want in a country getaway. Clean. Comfortable. Pretty. Peaceful. The owners extend themselves to make sure you're pleased and serve an awesome breakfast, too. Stay here. It's exceptional!

Our stay at The Lake Champlain Inn was delightful in every detail. We loved the decor, the delicious breakfast, the knowledge and helpfulness of our hosts, Joe and Nancy. Their suggestions about sights to see in the area and on our way back home were spot on.
We look forward to returning to the peaceful, quiet setting where guests really do get TLC.

Although the Inn apparently has central air conditioning, it was too warm for us. The queen sized bed was firm and comfortable for me but the footboard made it uncomfortable for my tall husband. The private bathroom was sparkling clean. There was no choice in the menu for breakfast--no eggs, no yogurt, no milk, no cereal--only fruit, juice, coffee, a tasty scone and an extremely bran-rich pancake (if that is what it was??). My digestives are normally fine with my usual diet of salads, nuts and lean meats. I paid the price of eating the bran pancake the next day. I'm glad I was home!

Room Tip: Stay away from the bran pancake. Don't feel pressured into leaving a large tip when they have y...
