THINGS TO DO
on the water
It's America's sixth largest lake, and it's just minutes away from your Vermont outdoor vacation
Lake Champlain is the true jewel of Vermont, enjoyed by residents and visitors for centuries, and you're
invited to see all that it has to offer during your Vermont outdoor adventure.
Just a short drive from The Essex, the waterfront area is a welcome gathering spot for visitors and locals
alike from the break of dawn until the beautiful evening sunset.
Whether you'd like to charter a sailboat for a relaxing day or enjoy a delicious dinner on a sunset cruise,
you have numerous opportunities to spend some quality relaxation time out on the water throughout your
Vermont outdoor vacation.
There are also several beaches available for sunbathing, enjoying a good book, or taking a quick dip.
If you'd prefer, you can also rent a canoe or kayak for the afternoon, exploring the miles of mountain
rivers and streams, many of which run through Vermont's gorgeous State Parks.
Our knowledgeable staff has information about charters, rentals, and other waterfront options.
