The lake was stunning. It was a sunny day and you could see across to the hills of Vermont.

Lake Champlain, at 112 miles long and 16 miles at its widest, is the sixth largest lake in the United States. The view from Contentment House is East toward the Green Mountains of Vermont. Left from the dock (North) is the Sandbar Bridge. The bridge has a place for shallow draugt boats/PWCs to enter the "Inland Sea," which takes you all the way to St. Albans, Vermont. The Inland Sea is dotted with privately owned islands as well public islands (with dockage and nature hikes/camping provisions) and places to buy fuel and other necessities. Going straight from the dock (East) will land you in Malletts Bay. Here, Champlain Marina is recommended for fuel and other boating needs. The has plenty of places to hang the hook, relax,; and watch beautiful sail boats. Bear Southeast from the dock you'll find Thayer Beach. A public sand beach that's only reachable by boat. Hang a right (South) from the dock and you'll find yourself at the Railroad Bridge. This is used by cyclists. The Western part of the of the RR Bridge has a "cut" for vessels of any size to reach the "Broad" Lake. From here, you can travel to Montreal or New York City (both of these require the use of locks). Burlington is within each reach as our numereous Revolutionary War battlesites. Pubilc and private islands abound. Plattsburg, New York with its wild "Naked Turtle" marina and bar is busy any day or night when the weather is nice. On the East side of the Lake you'll find Burlington and its sandy (but often crowded North Beach). Please note this is a large body of water and one must pay attention to weather forecasts and it's advisable to carry your telephone (in a Ziploc bag) or a marine radio. The Lake has so much to enjoy so please do so! Just be safe and make sure you have a designated driver as random stops by the Vermont State Police are common.

Lake Champlain is a gorgeous place to take Route 22; beyond being a beautiful drive, there is tons of hiking, watersports, and small inns to stay at. I've typically driven up Route 22 and crossed into Vermont via car ferry at Essex. It's a great ferry trip, plus Cedar Beach (Vermont) is a cute little town to poke around; Burlington has some great restaurants too (though that would definitely take you way off of Route 22).

Beautiful lake separating Vermont and New York. There are swinging benches along the coastline, where you can sit, relax, and watch the sailboats. Grab a seat here around sunset and prepare to be dazzled.
