The Lake Champlain House (LCH) is centrally located to Montreal, the Adirondacks/Lake Placid Region, and Burlington, Vermont. The Rouses Point/Vermont Bridge and close proximity to Interstate 87 make all three destinations a quick, easy car drive.



The LCH sits on the outskirts of the scenic lakeside Village of Rouses Point, in the northeastern corner of New York.



The Lake Champlain House is located on the peninsula known as (French) Point Au Fer, which is on the New York shore of Lake Champlain.





Lake Champlain (French: lac Champlain) is the sixth largest fresh water lake in the United States, located mainly within the borders of the United States (states of Vermont and New York) but partially situated across the US-Canada border in the Canadian province of Quebec. The Lake is approximately 1130 km² (435 square miles) in area, is roughly 180 km (110 miles) long, and is 19 km (12 miles) across at its widest point. The maximum depth is approximately 400 feet. The lake varies seasonally from about 95 to 100 feet above mean sea level.
