Peaceful Paradise on the Lake

We just spent a great week here. The cottage was perfect, spacious, clean, well furnished and had everything we could possibly have needed and more! Ardie and Mike made us feel welcome from the first moment and were on hand throughout the week for anything we needed. Mike was a great help for my husband and kids and all their fishing needs - nothing was too much trouble. They caught so many fish we lost count! We enjoyed a wonderful evening BBQ hosted by Ardie and Mike with delicious food. Only one complaint.....a week wasn't long enough!

Let go and let Watch Point location help you become replenished as you re-goup with fun and relaxation for your next bout of your regular routine. As for me, I took my journey to Watch Point to visit my longtime friend Ardie and husband, Mike. Not only to take a trip down memory lane with my friend, but to live in her new life with Mike. I was so happy I did! It was rewarding in every way. Down to a drop-in from her daughter Kelly and her family. I had not seen Kelly since she was a little girl and it was an unexpected pleasure. The reunion was amazing as Ardie, Mike, Kelly, and the rest of family are amazing! I stayed in the Inn itself which was special and was treated like a Queen. Living in Ardie's and Mike's world was without a doubt the greatest experience! So you see, there are many reasons to visit Watch Point Inn and Cottages. The Charisma will draw you back time and again after time as it will become your traditional location place.

Cozy & Off the Beaten Path

A rustic lakefront getaway, off the beaten path with wonderful amenities (hot tub, BBQ, large cabin, ON the lake). The proprietors, Ardie & Mike, couldn't have been more hospitable and helpful. The cabin was comfortable, recently updated, well-equipped with a full kitchen and super quiet. Minutes from the ferry to Ft. Ticonderoga/NY Lake George. The drive through the apple orchards and woods is idyllic and delightful. People considering a visit should know that the nearest gas station/food mart is a 10 minute drive and virtually all eateries and tourist sites require a significant drive.
