Meet the Owner(s)

About Us: We are an architect (Gert) and interior designer (Lynn) who love the Adirondacks and Essex in particular. This is an incredibly peaceful spot -- quiet, calming and cozy. We've even come up in the winter, though it's technically a 3-season camp.

Why our property is special: Restful, secluded and peaceful location with hilltop view of Lake Champlain, and the Vermont mountains, overlooking a meadow surrounded by woods. Easy walk to lake access where you can swim, sit, read and listen to the sounds of waves. The cottage is part of the historic Crater Club, a private summer camp, has access to club amenities and activities. Just 1.5 miles from charming and historic village of Essex, with shopping, galleries, restaurants and convenient ferry access.
