Just a short walk down the street, Willsboro hosts the world class, yet unpretentious Turtle Island Café. Be prepared to be dazzled with local cuisine by the personable chef ~ owner, David Martin. This restaurant will keep you coming back for more!
In fact, the word personable is one of the best adjectives to describe the people & local businesses that are part of this special community that straddles the Boquet River.
Only two miles, this way or that, will take you to Noblewood ~ a public sandy beach on Lake Champlain, or try Long Pond for some peaceful canoeing & kayaking; and the public boat launch, marina & golf course are just another short hop away. Water, water, everywhere.
There are many day trips you may want to enjoy while in Willsboro, with all being only short distances away. Exciting visits to Lake Placid (the Olympic venue), the Adirondack Museum, Fort Ticonderoga & the Au Sable Falls Gorge are just a few to mention.
Or, you may just want to relax out on the “Overlook” riverside patio, sipping a beverage, reading a favorite novel, while listening to the babbling water, making its way downstream to the falls. It will renew your senses, as you breathe in some real fresh air & find out what life is like in the slower lane.
You will want to make the short car or bike ride to the quaint ferry ride across Lake Champlain to Charlotte, Vermont on the
Essex ~ Charlotte Ferry. Once in Vermont, the Shelburne Museum (world renowned folk art collection museum) is just a short trip up Rte. 7!
Why settle for just a trip to Vermont, when you can enjoy the best of both sides of Lake Champlain?
